4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am part of Greek life and see it as a supporting anf encouraging environment. In my chapter, we hold charity events that many Greeks as well as non-greeks attend. Greek life is a big part of FSU, but it is not the only way toy getinvolved on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics is a huge part of FSU, but the love and drive of our team is what brings us all together. There is a undeniable school spirit that encompasses FSU. This school spirit is not only seen in varsity sports, but as well as in intramural leagues, in which we all encouraged to take part in.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Attending Florida State University is a unique experience, enhanced by a strong curriculum I know will prepare me for the real world. FSU is a not just a school, but a home. It encompasses the whole city of Tallahassee and the pride that flows from students is contagious and electrifying. The thing that sets Florida State apart from the rest, is the intense diversity of the student body. It is possible to connect with so many people on so many different topis ranging from politics, dance styles, to scientific discoveries. There is truly an unspoken rule of acceptance among students, I believe is hard to find at any other school.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: FSU does a great job at making its students feel safe and protected. There are many resources on and off campus that are in place solely to ensure the safety of students.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I personally didn't live on campus but I only ever heard great things about it from my peers

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is interesting and definitely a big part of the social aspect of college but what is special about FSU is that students are treated the same whether they are involved in Greek life or not. There are also a vast array of opportunities on campus that don't make joining Greek life the only way to get involved.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We are national champions and the majority of students and alumni are extremely spirited and supportive of athletics

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: FSU is a diverse institution that promotes self discovery

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: At school durg safety is probably higher but it is of no use because outside school students are exposed to all types of drugs, alcohol etc. It does not matter how safe is school in terms of drugs for students because they only need to put one feet outside the perimeters of the school and theyll be exposed to drugs and anything that is prohibited

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While being at FSU Tallahassee i have felt like home. The environment is awesome and you feel like home. There are so many things offered in the campus throughout the year that makes the college life much more funny and nteresting.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are lots of safety precautions there are buttons everywhere on campus you can press at any time if you need to call the police. If you press them 20 cops will appear out of nowhere in less that 2 minutes (don't try unless you need cops they take it seriously).

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Depending on your major classes can be huge in a building called hcb (HUGE CLASSROOM BUILDING). Seriously you'll walk in and be astonished. I've also had classes with 15 students in them and become close friends with lots of people. Most professors I have had are experts in their area with the occasional foreign professor nobody understands which can be frustrating! Use ratemyprofessor!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Not much knowledge about this I know there is a career center and lots of job fairs but haven't attended any events myself!

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is big here. I am currently in the panhellenic community and it is truly amazing! I highly recommend participating in recruitment no matter what your gender is!! Everyone can find a home with life long friends!!!!

5 College Junior

Athletics: FSU football games are definitely the best tradition. Being in doak on a game day and having a great team with an enthusiastic crowd is seriously so amazing!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love FSU, highly recommend going greek if you want to make friends. Its very hard to stand out in such a huge community when you're not involved with a greek organization. Although it's extremely costly it's definitely an investment!

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm life is terrible. Smith should have been demolished ages ago and if you have a clean room, you probably have an awful roommate.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There have been multiple sexual assaults on campus while I attended FSU. There was also a gunman my first semester at the library. Also, many attempted abductions have happened near and on the outer edges of campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a lot of professors who could care less about their students. They are more concerned with the research they are doing. The class sizes for undergrad are so large that it is difficult to form a personal relationship with professors.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm transferring to UNF... Need I say more...

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was in an all girls dorm. I expected to make friends because of this, but it did not happen at all. However, the dorm I was in was one of the nicer ones, and it was super close to the library and Landis.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I didn't have time, because I wanted to have a high GPA, to rush and participate in Greek life. If you aren't in Greek life, you are completely excluded from all of their events.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The varsity sports are important and this is where all the money goes. The football team is what EVERYTHING revolves around. Student athletes are the most important students on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I hated my first two years of college because of unhelpful professors. Also, students were picked for my major without their academic achievements in mind. It was all about who you knew and if you went to high school in Tallahassee and had the "in" with the athletic trainers.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are police on campus at all times, and generally campus is a safe place

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

You would be hard-pressed to find a graduate of Florida State University who doesn’t have fond memories of the years they spent on campus. Current students will also agree that they are happy with their decision to attend school here. There is something for everyone, from athletics to academia, and you would have a hard time finding a more comfortable setting than Tallahassee. It has so much to offer, from exciting nightlife to beautiful weather.

Although it bears the reputation of a party school, FSU also has a growing reputation for turning out some of the best and brightest graduates in the entire nation. The school is now turning its focus on research, which should appeal to those interested in science and mathematics. But never fear, FSU also emphasizes the arts through their award-winning film and theater departments. From math and science, to the arts, FSU offers a vast array of eclectic degrees, which will be nothing but helpful later in your life. Choosing which college to attend is not an easy decision, but if you’re looking for the perfect combination of a good education and a good time, you can’t do much better than Florida State University.
