Like any other university, what you put into your experience is what you'll get out of it. This is especially true at a large institution like FSU. There's an enless amount of opportunities for everyone, both academic, social, and cultural. It's easy to feel "lost in the crowd" if you don't take the inititative to "put yourself out there." No one is going to hand you life experiences on a silver platter; you have to make the effort. You want to succeed academically and socially? Get involved in undergraduate research. Seek advice from faculty and peers. Join clubs and sports teams. Study abroad. Do an internship. These opportunities and more are available to those that want them. Your experience will be what you make of it, so put forth your best effort! I promise you can and will succeed at FSU

This university has offered me everything I could have expected from a college and more. In terms of academics, I chose courses that are interesting to me and that apply to my major, and every course I have taken has been exceptional. My professors so far have been extremely helpful, some of them extending beyond the general expectations of a college professor. Aside from academics, there is never a dull moment at FSU. There is a plethora of activities to choose from every single day and night. Sitting in and watching Netflix is almost never an option because there is always so much to do and so many people to meet. It is a dream!

I love the campus, because it's absolutely gorgeous. There's always so much to do on campus and there are plenty of events and clubs for those who are looking to get involved. I know it's a huge university (over 40,000), but it doesn't feel that way. I thought it would be scary and overwhelming large, but once you get adjusted it starts to feel smaller and more comfortable. I still get lost though, but I'm finding my way! I just wish there was more diversity. I love the study abroad programs they have at FSU.
