4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Anyone can always run into a couple professors they don't comply understand and/or like, but overall the quality and variety of the courses is pretty extensive. The professors are very good with students and have much knowledge on there topics. Class sizes are moderate and do not affect my way of studying. The classrooms are equipped with all modern technology and resources to help students in their studies.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is always networking, internships, and recruiting being done by the career center around campus. The help provided by the staff is outstanding because it helps understand internship and career paths that can be taken with any chosen major.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are many safety precautions FSU takes on sexual assault: for example, online classes on what to look out for, blue lights around campus, and safe bus/ nite nole/ and 5$ taxi fares.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus was a wonderful expense because that was where I got to meet some of my closest friends. They hosted many social events, it was close to my class, and conveniently located (by the gym and stadium). The housing process was easy, it was a first come first serve rule when it came to choosing your dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life partakes in many philanthropies, like our dance marathon. They are also a huge part of social life on and off campus. Many non-greeks support greeks at events they host for there philanthropy. Everyone is supportive of each other. There is a wide variety of greek life option on my campus especially because because it is ranked at the top for largest greek life

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit at Florida State never goes unnoticed. There is a great passion for being a Nole in every student.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: When I first applied to FSU, It was at the bottom of my list for schools to attend, but since it became one of my only affordable options I accepted my invitation there and slowly grew to love the university. Everyone is welcoming and accepting. The campus is beautiful, teachers are helpful, and the environment all around is outstanding.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: heavily involved in my fraternity, and i can see where it will pay off in the long run. greek life has had a positive influence on me by forcing me into social situations, and applying my skills to grow philanthrophies i may not have encountered had i not joined.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The initial vibe from a school of 40,000+ is overwhelming, but once you settle in, there is nothing better than having a group of 40,000 friends and family

5 College Senior

Diversity: I believe we have a little bit of everything on FSU's campus. You will DEFINITELY find your fit and that is what i love smooch about my school. It is a community unlike any other and even if two individuals do not mesh, the fact that they are both FSU Seminoles gives them a bond to talk about.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I would say that it is relatively present for a university. Of course there is underage drinking but it is not something one would see on a daily basis as they walk through campus. While it is visible, one must put themselves in that particular situation to be surrounded by it.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The classes offered at FSU and the professors on campus are great! I am a marketing major with a minor in communications and I love what I am studying. My professors and classes have made me excited to go out in to the real world and pursue my love for business. FSU's advisors really helped discover what I wanted to do in life (and not for anyone else, but for myself). Going to FSU has been the biggest blessing for me and I am constantly grateful for all that i have experienced, but it is a big weight on my shoulders when it comes to finances. Attending school is 100% on me and while it makes me happy to see my hard work pay off, it becomes extremely hard sometimes. I know that what i am accomplishing at FSU will pay off, but it would be very appreciated to have some financial help. It is my last year at FSU, and this year my family and I have endured some hard hits. I have been working hard, mostly during my vacation breaks, to save up but it has still been a great struggle. I am just praying for some help during this last year of my education but I know everything will work out.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Alumni make a great portion of FSU's community and morale. I am constantly seeing alum visit campus and even come speak to classes and to individual student about their experiences. Our career center is constantly full with students, wether its for resume advice, mock interviews or even career fairs. FSU does a great job and helping its students figure out their path post graduation. Once you graduate FSU, you are not alone or forgotten. You become part of a greater whole.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I believe our security is great on campus. After the shooting on campus that happened not too long ago, the whole feel on campus changed a bit. It was a big shock to all of the FSU community, but I feel that we have all come together and look out for one another. FSUPD is great and are always around. Of course, it is important to always be aware of your surroundings knowing that bad things can always happen, but I do feel safe on FSU's campus.

Campus Housing: I believe the Florida State University campus housing is great. There are a variety of dorms on campus that are all placed conveniently. They all offer a different feel and atmosphere that help shape each student that lives on campus. I lived on campus my freshman year in Salley Hall, which is one of the older dorms. While many would look at the hall and see as being old, I saw it as my little home where I made many memories and great friends. At FSU it is more than just a dorm hall, its your home and the place that will always hold a special place in your heart.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I think the greek life at Florida State University is a great community. I do also believe that one does not have to be Greek in order to have the ultimate college experience at FSU. I believe Greek students are viewed just as every other student on campus is viewed, based on their attitude and attitude on campus and in the classroom. The FSU atmosphere is full of diversity ranging from tons of different organizations, clubs and teams. I believe this is what makes FSU such an amazing and positive environment.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Florida State's athletics are amazing, wether you are an athlete or a fan, you are part of a bigger whole and an amazing community. I believe one of the factors that bind the students and community of FSU are the sports. We take pride in our teams, but even more so we take pride in being a Florida State Seminole.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Florida State University is an amazing school that offers an amazing learning and college experience. FSU has shaped me into the person I am today and has taught me to come outside of my comfort zone. This August I will be going into my final year and I am adamant on taking advantage of all that Florida State has to offer. It is a school that is built on community and success. I consider myself extremely lucky to be a Seminole and I know that FSU has given me the tools and knowledge to be a successful working woman after graduation.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My professors have been great; as I started off with 41 credits, I was able to start taking classes that had to do more with my major. The experience is outstanding when students begin to take these classes, but I am not sure about the basics.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career center is very helpful in searching for jobs and preparing for interviews, and the alumni network is very good almost assuring some type of good job.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Walking around campus I never felt worried this year; the school provides a safe bus for students at night, and students are very respectful from what I have perceived. The issue is off-campus with the social scene at bars and such.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I personally had a good experience as I was involved in a living learning community, so I was able to build relationships with those who have similar majors.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I would say FSU's balance between those involved in Greek life and those not is very good; only 17% of student are involved, I believe. Those interested seem to enjoy being involved in the community through Greek life, but because the majority of FSU students are not a part of Greek life it is just as easy to have a great college experience if one decides to not participate.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The biggest sport at our school is football. Though it is unfortunate it overshadows the other sports, this is the first sport in the fall to bring everyone together as a Seminole family and is truly a great experience in which to partake.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Florida State has given me so much opportunity since I began attending. My first year I was accepted into an organization called Service Scholars, receiving a $2,400 scholarship over my four college years in turn of performing 75 service hours each semester. This allowed me to not only become integrated into the FSU community but also into the Tallahassee community. I began volunteering at the FSU Center for the Advancement of Human Rights, where I translate documents for immigrant women seeking status in the U.S., similar to the work I would do in the career path in which I am interested. I repeat, all of this was during my first year. So, besides being a fun university with great people, Florida State provides opportunities for students to become who they want to be in the near future.

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.
