Campus Housing: Campus life is great as a freshman.

Campus Food: It could definitely be worst. The worst part is definitely that they close so early on Friday and Saturday and leave students to fend for themselves. I understand it's college but the meal plan should be renamed to "Unlimited Meal-Plan as long as you don't get hungry after 7:30pm on weekends." The food is sometimes good but sometimes I'm scavenging to find something I like to eat. Half the stations close an hour before closing time and going 30 minutes before they close you can only get some bread and maybe water if your lucky. They should either work until it's time to go or fix their schedule they show people to show when each individual station closes so people don't feel ripped off and can plan their schedule accordingly.

Campus Housing: Not that much room in the dorm I live. I supposedly live in one of the worst ones, Smith Hall, but I do not find it that bad. My roommate and I keep it somewhat clean so we don't have problems with roaches or anything like that. It's definitely overpriced, but we are paying for the convenience. It's very convenient to be on campus already especially with the horrible parking that goes on for people trying to get to their classes on time.

Off-Campus Housing: Depends on where you live.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live in Aqua Club formerly known as Osceola Ridge and it started out a bit rocky when I lived in the 4x2's last summer. However, since I moved into the 4x4's it has been great for me. It's proximity to campus is very close and makes it acceptable to walk, if I must. Also, the Seminole bus routes (Garnet route & Gold route) pass through here about every 15 minutes.

Administration: Strictness is not very implemented on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The party scene at FSU is very infamous. Frat parties are normally the best options for minorities. Clubs can sometimmes be fun but tend to be very crowded.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: You will receive financial aid but you must be able to manage your finances responsibly.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food and dining options on campus are very good. There's just about anything for any type of appetite. The value of the meals are good. Moms and Pops is definitely a favorite around campus if you're in need of a quick, inexpensive meal.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Summer of my freshman year I resided in Landis through the CARE 13' program and it was a wonderful living experience. I loved my room as well as my roommate and RA. Fall and spring semester of my freshman year I resided in Jennie Murphree Hall. My room was very spacious and it's conveniently located right next to Suwanee room. The only issue is that with staying on the east side of campus, you must purchase a meal plan.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus is a really good solution. Landlords let you stick to yourself and rarely come in to check on you unless you call them. It can be pricey but if you travel a little farther away you can get a lower price and still a nice place. Parking is good for you but if you want friends to come over they will get towed after midnight.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to eat off campus. You can always find a place and the price is never super outrageous. Its pretty convenient if you have a car - some options can be a little far away if the buses aren't running.

Administration: Campus Administration is pretty nice. They never really interfere too much with student's lives on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: A lot of times girl can go pregame at a frat house and then get bused over to The Strip or Potbelly's. If not you can go to the clubs around campus and there is always something going on. If you have connections you can usually find some pretty rad house parties as well.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
