Overall Experience: Professors here are very involved in the personal progression of each student that comes to them. They are willing to help whenever needed which I highly appreciate. Office hours are there for those who need them and constant visitation at office hours allows a strong relationship to be built between student and professor. I've had tenured professors and non-tenured professors, however all give the same amount of effort. I can see the passion these professors have for their subjects. Their love for a particular subject even makes me want to master that subject. So many courses are offered here and exploration is highly encouraged for those who do not yet know the path they wish to take in life. Class sizes range depending on which courses you're taking. I've had classes as small as 20 people and classes as big as 360.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I chose this school mainly because I knew a degree earned from here would have a huge impact on my future. The school is known for its thriving academics, knowledgeable professors, and incredible learning atmosphere. As a second-year student, I can clearly see why. It is possible to succeed with the highest of honors from Florida State as long as you're willing to put in the effort and work it takes. Jobs/Internships are available after graduation and can be recommended by a professor, the Career Center, or an academic advisor. My school has many job/internship fairs throughout the year that introduce students to a world of opportunities. The alumni network is of great quality as many Florida State graduates go on to succeed in their fields and carry the Seminole name. It's a matter of getting into contact with alumni and networking with them to benefit yourself. Employers (part-time and full-time) are at job fairs eagerly seeking out the perfect employees to uphold their mission and represent their brand, it is almost easy to walk up to an employer and begin a well-practiced elevator pitch.

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel completely safe and invincible, really. I tend to put myself in situations I normally wouldn't just because I know that I'll be okay. Police are always driving by and I know that if I ever need it, I'm able to stop an officer and ask him for a ride to my housing area. There is a God-sent SAFE BUS that runs from 7PM to 2:45AM that will take you anywhere on campus as long as you call with your current location and destination. Campus crime is low, despite the many false reportings we've had throughout the year. The FSU Police Department is right on campus and is always open. They allow students to come in and talk about any issues they are currently dealing with in regards to personal safety. Police officers are even at events with a high amount of people to ensure public safety.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing definitely isn't perfect. This boils down to high pricing, low room availability (once a certain time comes around), and overall cleanliness. For example, the maintenance/cleaning staff only works weekdays, so if any mess in the elevators and/or stairways is made on the weekend, it won't get cleaned until the following Monday. Other than that, cleanliness is supreme. On weekdays, they're constantly vacuuming, sweeping, fixing problems, etc. I truly do feel comfortable. The best options for dorms are: Dorman, Deviney, Traditions, Ragans, Wildwood, Azalea, Magnolia, DeGraff, and Landis. Amenities include a game room, TV room, laundry facility, study areas, trash chutes for easy trash disposal, etc. The social atmosphere is incredible as you get to know your hallmates and RA. Most halls are conveniently located on campus near dining facilities, classroom buildings, offices, etc. It depends on which dorm you live in whether you are far/near your class building. The housing process is fairly easy if you choose as soon as possible. For returning students, you are given a certain date to begin choosing housing, so that can set you back and limit your options.

Greek Life: I'm not personally in Greek Life, so I can't comment on the specifics, however it is big here on FSU's campus. You will see a tremendous amount of people wearing their Greek letters proudly on their chest. Greek Life has a huge impact on this school and the surrounding Tallahassee community. The Greeks have walks for charity, fundraisers, their infamous parties, and they bring in a lot of money (in regards to Greek alumni). Non-Greeks view Greeks as active individuals within the community, but they are more known for their huge parties (the fraternities, at least). Parties are a great way to have fun and meet new people. Both Panhellenic and Divine 9 Sororities and Fraternities are available here at Florida State and its impossible that you won't find the right Greek organization for you--a true place where you belong.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Do I really even have to comment on this? Sorry, it's just that... my school is the best when it comes to the athletics department. Student involvement is clear as the football stadium is packed at each and every home game. Football, basketball, soccer--they are all super important here at FSU. We, as Seminoles, support one another and root for our teams at both their highest and lowest moments. Fan support probably blows any other school out the roof! Team performance is essential when discussing the athletics at FSU and our teams' hard work never goes unnoticed (women's or men's sports).

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've never felt more capable of becoming successful anywhere else than at good, ol' Florida State (Go Seminoles!) This is a truly magical place. I work tremendously hard and know that my dedication, my sleepless nights, and my desire for greatness will never go unnoticed. I feel like someone who is really seen at this school. People usually don't notice the effort I put into my schoolwork, I WANT to be great and I KNOW I can be. FSU just further instills that confidence within me with its beyond helpful faculty, wonderful learning accommodations, and quality academics. For once, I feel like success is within reach, I just need to take the opportunities surrounding me and go forward with full force.

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.

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.
