4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The town is a quaint place and offers lots to do besides campus. The scenery is beautiful and the entertainment options are limitless.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking permits are rather expensive and the parking spaces are limited. There is a set fine for parking violations which seems to be unfair in certain situations.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of restaurants in the location of FSU. There is something for every persons liking. Coming from a smaller town, I was not use to the vast selection of restaurant choices.

4 College Senior

Parking: Parking decals are free now, which is a change from when I attended before, a great addition, one still has to be mindful of what times to arrive at campus for best parking availability.

Athletics: My response would be an A if not for the lack of respect for visiting teams exhibited by the student body. In general Florida State students behave themselves in the stands, but there is large group of students who have no respect for visiting parents and alumns.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing in Tallahassee includes living spaces in every price range and within walking distance of the school. Overall, great for any prospective student.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Because Florida offers Bright Futures Scholarships, undergraduate education is extremely affordable, not to mention Florida's low-cost of tuition relative to the rest of the country. Florida State also offered me an academic competitiveness scholarship, so they do their fair share off offering scholarships to qualified students.

1 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: In my opinion, Greek life is simply an extension of high school popularity wherein students are willing to pay to be a part of a select group that stands out among the rest of the student body. They do annual philanthropies but it is simply a dog and pony show to justify the flagrant disregard for academics as a priority.

Campus Housing: I have not lived on school campus.but the dorms and are A class style living along with different options of close off-campus living.all of the needs ofthe students were taken inti consideration and it shows in the new dorms and off campus housing.the dorms are kept clean everyday and resident assitants are readily available.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: You can expect to find a diverse bunch of guys and girls at florida state.of course there are groups of both sexes that believe everyone else should worship the ground they walk on but those groups only account for a small portion of the student population.the girls are great looking overall and the guys dont follow to far behind.everyone is friendly and helpful are campus and town.really feel as though i made the best college in florida state.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There are a few malls you could choose to visit while tallahassee.great national parks and vibrant nightlife.great location from other universities in the area within five mile distance.safety is the univertsity's chief objective and go through great lengths to provide an atmosphere condusive to learning.

3 College Junior

Weather: Especially right now in the summer, its super rainy and not fun to be on our campus, no matter how beautiful it is.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: We have a very attractive student body. Inside and out. We have so many different walks of life and interests collaborating to make a melting pot of fun college culture and an excellent educational environment. Just wish people would worry more about their integrity and being decent and less about how they are going to get drunk tonight.

5 College Junior

Diversity: FSU has an excellent International program where we attract students from all over the world. We have an extremely diverse population and like most places there are still some minor racial barriers and passionate political opinions. Over all though, we have a very accepting vibe on campus. Welcoming and fun for whoever!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life dominates FSU, but as someone who does not participate in a Frat, the greek life gets annoying.

5 College Senior

Majors: My internship will be student teaching. I heard it's a lot of work, but worth it in the end

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: If you want to live off campus and near the campus, you can not procrastinate to find housing arrangements.

4 College Senior

Diversity: All the friends I have met, are extremely accepting to people of different religious, political, sexual orientation, and economic backgrounds.

4 College Senior

Administration: Campus social life at Florida State is the best there is. School spirit is outrageous! Always opportunities to meet new friends.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I, personally, was not able to get much help with financial aid mainly because my parents receive a high enough income for them to not really want to do anything for me as far as tuition and work/study programs are concerned. I do have bright futures and Florida prepaid to pay for my tuition costs and the University does offer several scholarships you just have to look for them.

4 College Junior

Administration: While the campus is pretty strict about underage alcohol use, they really don't affect student's lives off campus. With that being said, anyone can drink legally or illegally and the university cannot do anything about it. Most people keep their partying off campus anyway. Our academic honor policy about keeping people from cheating and plagiarism is pretty set and stone in everyone's minds, but for good purpose.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: During the day, FSU's campus is pretty safe, there's usually many people wherever you go so there is low crime rate when there's light outside. However, at night there have been several reports of attempted battery, theft, and even rape on and near campus. Most of the time these incidences happened when people were walking alone after midnight. The Tallahassee police seem to be pretty good at doing their job, though.

3 College Junior

Weather: Its Florida so its always hot even in our so called winters which last like 2 weeks lol. In the summer, expect rain because its hurricane season but the weather is always beautiful.

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.
