Overall Experience: The FSU student body has an exuberance of school spirit and passion for academic achievement. Everyone from the faculty and students are extremely welcoming and loving. The campus offers everything that students could ever need or want to excel academically and socially so that they can receive a great education and enjoy the best years their lives. Great environment for absolutely any type of student to feel welcome and find friends. Can't go wrong with FSU. GO NOLES!!

Overall Experience: it a good school and it is pretty but I could use some work. parking is difficult and the dorms are small and very expensive. Also there are a few teachers that are quite bad and don't teach.

Overall Experience: My school gives multiple opportunities to its student in order to make them feel right at home and to achieve their dreams much more fasters. There's always something going on for the students and always an internship to help them out.

Overall Experience: The school I attended was great. The teachers were always willing to help, they took the time to talk with their students, forming real relationships in the classroom. Most did their best to make class interesting and fun. I loved how small the classes were, making it easier for the teachers to have the relationships they had possible. If I had to do it all over again I would still pick this school. It was the right size for me at the time and filled with the most wonderful teachers.

Overall Experience: College is where you learn to become an independent person, financially and socially. Florida State helped me learn the importance of having a college experience because it pushes you to look out for yourself and take matters into your own hands and also the importance of thriving in your community. It taught me to be responsible and fight for what I want.

Overall Experience: Being in the 2015 summer session for Florida State University, I was able to meet some professors and learn the campus before chaos erupts with the fall semester. I was also able to adjust to the "College Lifestyle" and begin scheduling eating habits and how far classes will be.

Overall Experience: I love my school. The campus is beautiful, and the people are great. The professors are very helpful and want to see their students succeed. The only downside is that the out of state tuition is difficult to afford.

Overall Experience: I have really learned a lot about myself and who I want to be as a person. I have learned how to communicate with people from different backgrounds as myself. I have really immersed myself in the college experience by joining organizations from my sorority to non-profits to SGA. If you wanted to get a well rounded individual to enter the work force or a graduate school upon graduation you would have the creme of the crop from the Florida State University.

Overall Experience: I like my school. I can't wait to go back up for the Fall semester. The classes challenge me and I have great friends. It was a rough start because the people I thought were my friends we very mean but now I really love my school.

Overall Experience: Attending the Florida State University has been the best decision I could have ever made! I have learned so much academically and I have grown so much as an individual. I have been given the opportunity to meet so many different people from all walks of life. Becoming a part of greek life at the university has also been such a great experience. If I could do it all over, I would definitely choose my university again because this is the college experience I have always dreamed of.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am in a very small major, and FSU is one of the best at it in the country. I am blessed to know what I want to do with my life. With that said, even though it was basically obligatory that I go to FSU, (it was the only place I applied to) I could not be happier with my decision. Everyone here is so accepting and friendly, which was a wonderful change of pace from high school. Tallahassee is definitely southern but downtown (the area around the campus) is surprisingly urban and becoming more cosmopolitan. The campus is very compact and that is huge for me because of my mobility issues. All of my professors have been extremely knowledgeable and its basically impossible to have "nothing to do" at FSU. I was able to get involved in the tv studio in the meteorology department and broadcast weather 3x a week on PBS Tallahassee. A very unique opportunity and that is just the tip of the iceberg. If they are strong academically in your program, FSU's environment provides an excellent opportunity to excel in those fields. One more thing, GO NOLES!

Overall Experience: From day one, my life and passion has been centered on the concept that education not only opens the door to an unlimited amount of knowledge, but also grants us the opportunity to unhinge our passions, foster hope, and help us embrace our greatest ambitions. Education is not limited to inside the classroom. I have been able to indulge in my passion for education more specifically through student affairs. I volunteer well over thirty hours a week dedicated to an organization called Dance Marathon. Dance Marathon is a forty-hour event, where 1,800 students pledge to stand for twenty hours. The idea is the “dancers” stand for those who can’t, because the main beneficiary is our local Children’s Miracle Network hospital. I personally plan the entertainment for the forty hours, delegate tasks to my team and help fundraise during the event, last year we raised $1.1 million. This division of student affairs has pushed me to better believe in myself, dream bigger, and further develop my leadership traits. These are just a select few of the characteristics and abilities I have learned from the student affair’s program. I’m applying for this scholarship because I always want to further my education so that I can empower others to have the same opportunities I have been so fortunate to obtain. If we can empower every student when they attend college to generate a contagious desire to focus on others, imagine how much of a better place the world would be.

Overall Experience: To be completely honest, I would have never imagined I would have ended up at Florida State. I could not be any happier with my decision to attend this university. The campus is absolutely beautiful and set up in a way where you can easily walk anywhere (really one of my favorite things about the university). Florida State also offers many opportunities for my major and I am currently looking into graduating with a Master's as well as my Bachelor's. Maybe I never planned to attend Florida State but I truly believe that it's where I belong.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is far enough away from home where I do not receive "surprise visits" but close enough that I can make it home for holidays or important events. Most of the people are from south Florida which made it very easy to get acclamated. My school offers a tremendous amount of opportunities to create a professional future and the athletics are awesome too. I am so happy with my choice and would not have chosen any other school if I had to do it again.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love all of the teachers I have had so far, from bio 1 & 2, to precalc, to southeast religions, they have all been extremely knowledgable and excellent at conveying the knowledge. I knew I chose the right school when I got to see Bill Nye speak at our school my first month there, he was amazing. I love the vegan "Krishna" lunch served monday-friday!!!! It is so delicious and healthy. I feel like I belong at the school. Our neuroscience club is also fantastic and I have never felt more welcomed at any club, and I learned a lot about the brain! I could do without the huge Greek life because it seems to increase the pretentiousness of the student body that are involved, but I just keep my distance from the stereotypical ones.

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.
