5 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid process was very easy to finish and I managed to get all of the aid that I needed.

5 College Junior

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Suite-style dorms are very easy to adjust to. Very clean and easy to walk to all classes. RA's are very helpful and friendly.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I prefer off campus housing because you get so much more freedom and you get your own bedroom. And even in some places, the rent comes out cheaper than living in a dorm on campus. Many of the housing options are near campus, but there are some that are farther away and may require a car/bus/shuttle to get to campus. Also, many apartment complexes host events for their residents with free food and attractions.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are very common and pretty easy to find. If you'e a girl, you're most likely going to get in free.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many of the off campus dining can be found literally walking distance from campus. They are so many varieties, from ethnic restaurants to the more common fast food ones.

Administration: Campus strictness really is great. There are police all over campus, but they are pretty strict about parking violations and drugs/alcohol in dorms. Attendance in class, from my experience, hasn't been extremely strict, but my professors still encouraged us to come.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining halls really aren't that terrible, but there ARE limited healthy options and the quality of food could definitely be better. If you're vegetarian, I don't recommend getting a meal plan since options would only be limited to mainly the salad bar, cereal, pizza, and maybe a random side from another station. The restaurants on campus are all pretty good, but can be a bit pricier since they are on campus.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process went pretty smoothly for me and the financial aid office was very quick to make updates to my account. I recommend visiting the office in person to solve any concerns rather than calling. You get helped much faster.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is absolutely amazing! The dorms are very spacious, renovated, clean, and new ones are even being built right now. RAs conduct social events with free food for their hallways every couple of weeks. The halls themselves even have social events as well for the whole entire residence hall, a great way to meet new people! Many of the dorms are in the middle of campus, so they're not too far from classroom buildings.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I guess we have all of the normal food places and some other places that I've only ever seen in Tallahasee so that's nice.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I mean, to be honest.... I ate at Chick Fil A almost every single day. Coming from a home where I always had healthy food, this was such a big shock to my system and not very good for my body image. I wish things were healthier but that's really it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in Reynold's Hall during my first year. I was lucky enough to have a decent sized room but a lot of things still bothered me in it. It wasn't the cleanest when I moved it so that's a major issue for me. However, I heard a lot worse things from other residents in alternate dorm halls so that made me feel somewhat lucky. For the price of dorms, I don;t particularly think that it is worth living there. Although it is convenient to live so close to class (therefore no driving and parking), it's definitely not worth the cost of dorms plus the FORCED meal plan.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: places are easy to find off-campus, and really cheap, too

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.
