Athletics: Being national champs in a variety of different sports has given the athletics department a lot of extra juice.

Health & Safety: FSU takes crime, safety, and sexual assault very seriously. Whenever there is even a possible incident that could be dangerous to the students on and off campus, we are alerted immediately through FSU alerts. Although I would never walk alone on campus by myself in the middle night, I know there is a lot of security measures that can be taken if I did walk alone and something were to happen. FSU has emergency buttons set around campus that can be pressed in case of an emergency and the police department is immediately notified. With that being said, I don't feel as if I'm in any danger when I'm at FSU.

Overall Experience: We all have professors that we don't like, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they are bad professors... they just don't fit my style. So far, I've only had one professor that I didn't really enjoy too much but that doesn't mean he didn't know how to do his job. However I will say, that after completing two full semesters at FSU, I have learned more in those two semesters than I did during the four years that I was at my high school. You can really tell that the professors care about your education and they want you to understand the material.

When I start registering for classes, I honestly get so overwhelmed because there are so many classes that I want to take but I know I can't take them all. I've never been so excited to learn before I came here.

Overall Experience: Our Student Career center is probably one of the most helpful places to visit on FSU's campus. Not only do they help you find internships and careers, and set your career path, but they also help you perfect your resume. I have a class in the Dunlap Success Center so I am constantly reminded on how important it is to go there before I apply for a job. Also, our campus offers a lot of job in itself. I currently have about 7 friends that work on campus and they absolutely love it because you don't work late hours, they are flexible because of schooling, and everyone you work with most likely goes to FSU so you are constantly building more relationships.

Campus Housing: Personally, I really don't mind living on campus. I get to my classes on time without having to wake up super early, I'm friends with every single person on my floor because Im apart of the Social Justice Living Learning Community, my room is pretty spacious, and I can walk to my sorority house within 10 minutes. However, with that being said, I live in Wildwood, which is one of the nicer dorms. I also lived in Dorman over the summer which was absolutely fantastic because my random roommate over summer, is now my best friend. I must say though, I feel bad for the students living in Salley and Smith due to the unsanitary conditions, like mold and humidity. But since I don't live there, I can't really complain. To be honest, the only thing I really don't like about living on campus is the fact that Im not allowed certain appliances, I can't paint my wall, and I can't have any pets. But other than that, everything is pretty much great.

Greek Life: First off, let me start off by saying that Greek life is not all about the parties, socials, or what you look like. Greek life is so much more than that, and people tend to forget that. People don't realize how much Greek life gives back to the community. My sorority alone, Alpha Delta Pi, raised over ten million dollars nationwide to go towards the Ronald McDonald House. Also, last semester, through our Philanthropy event, we raised over $10,000 in just a few weeks to go towards the same foundation. And not only do we participate in our own philanthropy events, but we participate in other sorority and fraternity's philanthropy events too so we know that we're not just make one difference, we're making several big differences. It saddens me to know that there are people still out there that think Greek life is all about partying and drinking when in fact, that's such a small portion in the grand scheme of things. A lot of people argue that the reason why they don't join Greek life is because they say that they don't need to "buy friends." Personally, I didn't join to make friends. I have friends. I joined because making a difference in this world starts with your own community. After seeing my sister be in her sorority for fours years and noticing how much she grew as a person, that made me want to join more than anything. Through Dance Marathon, FSU Light the Night, various 5ks, and all the other philanthropic efforts that FSU Greek life partakes in, there is no better way to give back to the community than to join Greek life.

Athletics: Although I am very ashamed that I have yet to make it to a football game (I work almost every football game), Florida State has school spirit like no other school in the nation. However, while babysitting (my job), I always make it a point to leave the game on so I know exactly what the score is and whats happening. Every game day, my sorority hosts either lunch or brunch before the game to get everyone excited and pumped for the day's big win. I see people going crazy on campus, theres music blasting throughout the entire day, and every where you look, you see garnet and gold. I mean, I thought my high school had school spirit until I came here... this was a game changer. Besides the school spirit though, FSU has an incredible athletic department. Every person on the athletic team puts in so much hard work dedication, and it really shows throughout all of our games, not just football.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My absolute favorite thing about Florida State University, besides our beautiful campus and incredible football team, is the fact that no matter who you are, where you come from, or who you want to be in life, there is a place for everyone here. We have so many clubs and organizations that fits the need of every type of person. Im currently in the Social Justice LLC and it has changed my view on almost everything and makes me want to not just be better, but do better. In almost every possible way, FSU has changed me for the better- it has made me smarter, it has made me more open minded but most importantly, it encourages me to make a difference in this world.

Health & Safety: It's a large school in a large city. Not a good idea to be alone at night on campus. School does what it can but it's all about location of the school.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love that there is always someone to do something with and always something to do. I hate the dorms, the parking and the dining hall food pretty much stinks. Classes are very labor and time intensive if you want to do well at all.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Haven't used these resources yet but they seem to be many and of quality.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Unbelievably expensive for a crappy room. 3 girls, 3 desks, 3 beds, 3 dressers, 3 broom closets, one sink, one shower, one toilet all in a 14ftx14ft room for a ridiculous price.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The best ones are hard to get into and you almost have to be a legacy to in.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football, football, football. Serious business here and tons of fun!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is my first year. It seems to be A LOT of work. Also, counselors aren't much help. There is no parking. Some professors are great and others are rude.

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.
