Florida State University is a very friendly college. They have many opportunities for students to engage in activities at school with their friends. It is easy to meet new people with the active student body life. The teachers are welcoming and excited about their job as well as friendly. They always seem ready to help and excited to be there. While the school is very crowded and sometimes too hectic, its an experience that many students can enjoy because of all the ways to get involved with the school and community. I am proud to go to this school.

I have no regrets coming to the school. I believe that it strongly encourages us to become well-rounded individuals. With academic rigor and persuasions to become social through clubs and sports, FSU is the school for anyone!

I love my college experience so far with the classes however my interactions with people have seemed very rushed and superficial.
