4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The Diversity on FSU'S campus is almost exceptional. There are Hipsters, lesbians, artists, ect. It is easy to find a variety of people to relate to and enjoy in whatever way you like! Be it drinking, or staying up late and exploring campus!

Health & Safety: On campus i always feel safe, even when im alone at night. the school has recently set up lil alert post all over the school and in the parking garages so if someone is in need of help you can press the button and can be located quickly. The school also has it set up so that whenever a dangerous situation is going on, or has happen, the students get emails and text.

Parking: Parking passes are free but student spaces fill up quickly and if you do not park in designated areas you'll probably get a ticket.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Parking on campus is free which is good but spaces fill up quickly and if you're not in designated student parking you'll probably get a ticket. The bus system is ok. Campus buses go to most of the areas around the school and nearby apartments. They have an app that allows you to check where they are. City buses are free with student ID but the routes can be confusing at first.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: You have the choice between apartments or houses. Houses are cheap.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Just starting Freshman year but I think it looks pretty good.

3 College Senior

Weather: It is extremely hot at the beginning of Fall semester ! The weather is sunny, usually. One cancellation of classes per year, due to the weather. We are on the coast of Florida, so weather is a player, but no too often.

Diversity: You meet so many different people at Florida Sate, not just ethnically, but from various different backgrounds as well. Everyone simply has a different mindset on so many different things. You'll find that you're learning so many new things from your classes, as well as your friends.

Athletics: The varsity sports at FSU are really important to the overall dynamic of the campus. On game days, you're going to be dealing with the band playing and the fans oozing out of every place you can think of. It's a really great and wonderful experience to be a part of.

Parking: The parking is pretty decent. There are parking garages, as well as lots. You definitely need a parking permit though, unless you want to get a ticket.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: There are not a lot of variety in scholarships offered at Florida State. You get minimal help in attendance, even though the school is fantastic.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I thought that the campus housing was really great, but I was fortunate enough to have roommates that I adored. The most important thing is to keep an open mind, and you'll have a blast.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are several choices of dining. On campus there is a Papa Johns, Chilis, Subway, Freshens, The Trading Posts, Pollo Tropical, Einsten Bros., Miso, Salad Creations, and a 24 hour Denny's. But if you want all-you-can-eat, you will enjoy eating at The Suwannee Room, The Fresh Food Company, or Figg's. Flex Bucks is basically money that you can use at the restaurants. Meal plans are best used at the all-you-can-eat dining halls. Figg's is a dining hall for athletes but allows students to eat there for lunch. All of the choices of dining are excellent and the food is always good.

Campus Housing: The dorms at Florida State are all pretty good. They do have a lot of really old dorms but it's not bad enough to complain. Some of the new dorms are very nice and they are continuing to build more.

3 College Senior

Weather: It never gets colder then 30 degrees, and if it does its no more then a day or two over winter. Summer tends to get pretty hot but again it is not unbearable.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Alcohol and marijuana is very prevalent at FSU, but other drugs are not as noticeable. The alcohol is very visible, but the authorities do the best they can in keeping it safe, especially on campus. The policies are enforced heavily, with little leniency, but it is hard to crack down too hard because of the amount of underage people who drink alcohol.

4 College Senior

Academics: I am a double major in the business and sports management majors. Both of them have many teachers who encourage, and help set you up with a lot of opportunities including internships, post grad jobs, etc.

Academics: A lot of teachers seem to try and engage the students into the studies that we learn. It usually is not straight from the book which helps us want to learn the subject.

3 College Senior

Majors: I feel like a great deal of information is being taught to us in such a short amount of time since we have a quarter system. Students are often forced to cram information for tests and this does not help us learn. However, the information we are learning is very important and worth knowing.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It all depends on the dorm you get. Most of the older buildings are honestly awful and are about the size of laundry room. However, most of the newer dorms are nice and clean and much more spacious. The nicer the dorm the more expansive. Also, unless your room has a kitchen a meal plan is the way to go.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: FSU has a variety of on campus activities. We have a movie theater, planetarium, a student run circus, and a club where bands and comedians will come to perform. The school union also has events throughout the year including holiday events, movies on landis and more.

2 College Junior

Parking: Beware! Unless you show up early between the hours of 7-9am finding spots to park during the year are rare. If you can take the bus from your off campus location I highly suggest it. Also your not considered a FSU student until you are towed at least once so keep your eye on where you can and cannot park.

4 College Junior

Administration: great social life tallahassee embodies FSU all year

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: horrible old buildings with tiny rooms for more than one person

5 College Junior

Athletics: football season makes the fall semester great and basketball in the spring does the same

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.
