4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got enough financial aid to pay for books and classes.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining halls get gross after you eat there for a while. If you don't eat much, you'll do better to buy and make your own food.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The on campus housing is pretty nice there are only two community style dorms and a few are upperclassmen apartment style. It also depends on what you make of it.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live 2 blocks off campus right next to where it turns into FAMU and I feel so safe. If you pay a little extra at the nicer apartments then they have security guards and security systems. The little bit of extra money goes a long way.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is no shortages of places to eat, but most of them are fast food and fattening. If want something decently healthy you have to venture pretty far off campus.

3 College Junior

Administration: If you break the honor code you are basically screwed, and parking enforcement is a nightmare.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I am out-of-state and the school will not give me any money everytime I apply. Unless your independent you don't get a dime out-of-state.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: There is never a shortage of things to do in Tallahassee. There are at least 3 different options every single night.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I am a vegetarian so I found it difficult to eat at any of the dinning halls unless I wanted pizza (which I do not). I ended up eating a salad for almost every single meal and after a while it got to be pretty awful.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in 2 different residence halls during my Freshman year. First I lived in Kellum from August to November and ended up moving out because of a roommate problem. Kellum was by far the worst of the worst when it came to dorms. All the walls were made out of concrete so you think the air would be very dry, but it was just the opposite. It was almost as if the walls were soaked with moister. I had a dehumidifier and I swear I had to empty a gallon of water from it almost every hour. There was also cockroaches all over the place and it smelled. Although the living portion of the dorm sucked, it had a great sense of community there and I met a few of my best friends while living there. In November I moved into Jennie Murphrie which is an all girls residence halls with private bathrooms, and it was the opposite of Kellum. It was beautiful, clean, and did not smell of sweat. Although it was a nice place to live I did not meet anyone while living there and did not feel the sense of community that I did in Kellum.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wish that they would give more grants and less loans.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The restaurants are good, but the workers can be really slow. Also, the dining hall food can get boring after a while. But at the end of the day, I am fed.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely love Florida State University! The campus is beautiful, there are a bunch of clubs and organizations to join and the professors are outstanding.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are alot of different off campus options but alot of the good ones arent as close to campus as i would like

Administration: I feel like as long as you arent a total idiot, then there is no reason for you ever to get into trouble

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I had a problem with my finanacial aid refund that put a hold on my account and made it difficult to use my id card on campus

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are things to do every night of the week if you really wanted to. So there are plenty of options for everyone

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are plenty of different options to satisfy all your cravings. They are decently located to the dorms and arent too expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its not too bad to live on campus. We are located near classes and near common destinations. It is expensive but so are all other dorms. I dont like my roommate and we dont have our own rooms which is annoyying.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are some really nice options like 601 Copeland and UClub if you don't mind the hefty price, and there are some less nice options that are dirt cheap.

3 College Junior

Administration: FSUPD are useless, but there are benefits to that... underage drinking is a nonissue

5 College Junior

Party Scene: Places to go every night of the week

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.
