Parking: Fight to the finish... Often would pick up strangers and give them a ride to their car to steal their spot.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe on campus. The surrounding capitol can be a scarier place... Especially alone. Always safer in numbers. I didn't enjoy my late night classes and walking alone on campus either.

Greek Life: I have made friends in my pledge class that I still continue to keep in touch with. Greek life made meeting other people easy and fun. However after the two years I spent as a member, I was ready to focus more on school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Well I haven't really ate at the campus but they say it's very good

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Here at Panama, the parking service isn't very good because of the quantity of parkings, but those few parkings are in a very good condition.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: I use my car for transportation. Then again, I'm a Panamenian Student and I'm ranking the FSU at Panama City.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I personally live with my parents at their house because it's really near to the university. I also would like to say that I'm a Panamenian Student and I'm ranking the Florida State University at Panama City.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There are two main cafeteria style eating venues on campus located at opposite ends of the campus. They are decent but sometimes can feel very redundant in food options. There are a decent amount of other dining facilities located mostly on the east side. From breakfast (Einstein's) to lunch (Subway, Salad Creations, Papa Johns etc.) to dinner (Chili's, Denny's) there is some place to eat. The downside is that most places excluding Subway, Chili's and Denny's all close down around 5 and on the weekends which does limit. But the main road in front of the campus has nothing but one restaurant after another so there is no way to not find food somewhere.

Academics: I am a psychology major and I honestly love it. The classes are all held in the psychology department which is comprised of two buildings. The advisers are helpful but you have to be careful to remember that their job is only to advise you on the courses you need to take to stay on track. Don't be afraid to go in there with your classes already planned out and if you are majoring in another area such as pre-med they are great about working around your necessary classes for that. One downside is that there are a lot of us so signing up for classes can be a hassle and there will come times when you have to wait until the last minute to slide into a required class. However, most of the time if there is a class that is required they will either squeeze you in or open up a new section if the need is great enough. The workload is easy enough that you are required to either do a minor or another major but that is honestly not difficult.

Local Area: Tallahassee is a college town through and through. Although it's the capital the majority of the inhabitants are from FSU, FAMU, TCC or one of the other specialty schools scattered throughout the city. Shopping is pretty decent we have two major malls and a bunch of other small stores scattered around. What is really cool is Railroad Square which showcases the artistic side of the city. On the first Friday of every month (dubbed First Friday) music, food and all the local artists come out and you get a really unique look at original, one of a kind pieces of art, jewelry and clothes that you won't find anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: FSU has a really good club/bar/party scene. There are decent clubs right off of campus and for those that are a little farther away there is a night bus that will drop you off and pick you up relatively near. House parties are common but can be difficult to get to depending on where they are located. No matter what scene you are into and no matter the age you are going to find a place to let loose.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Personally there wasn't as much financial aid as I would have hoped for those who just need a little extra something. For those who need financial support the financial aid process can go anywhere from being a walk in the park to being a complete nightmare. My advice is to keep on top of them when needed and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Guys & Girls: Diverse and interesting! From cross dressers to hijabs, the people here have it all!

Campus Housing: Housing is one of the biggest issues at FSU, it is over crowded.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The dining at florida state is not so good, except for breakfast.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The sports team are average at florida state university.

3 College Junior

Administration: The campus is pretty strict and takes security issues very serious.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Trasportation at Florida State University is subpar.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining halls are awful. It is cafeteria food and sometimes has its moments but you cannot really expect too much. The restaurants on campus aren't exactly great either but it's better than eating at the dining halls. If you don't have to get a meal plan I would recommend not getting one and cooking in your dorm, it saves a lot of money. Unless you just want to suck it up and eat bad food.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My major is biological sciences. I've been very satisfied with my advisors and all of the counsel they have given me. But it is because of the honors program that I really feel is giving me the most for my education. I am involved in research and have better networking because of the opportunities that honors has given me.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: honors classes allow for better one on one teaching. The class sizes are small and every teacher I have had has cared if I passed or failed.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I've seen a lot of diversity nothing too extreme but a lot more diverse than my highschool.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are bus routes all over campus. There are also bike racks everywhere. I drive and there is limited parking, not too bad.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a variety of off-campus housing options that are close to the campus. The prices vary but at least you will get your freedom.

5 College Freshman

Administration: School policies are strictly enforced to keep everyone safe. You can always find a police to help you or come to the rescue. If a policy is broken, the consequences will be enforced without an warning.

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.
