Weather: we have a nice weather during winter and to hot during summer and do not affect my rate.

3 College Senior

Athletics: i think the program is great way or students to learn new skills, socialize, learn and provides opportunities to advance to a career in sports. I enjoy watching sport events and think they promote togetherness and a sense of school pride. I am glad fsu has A porting program and proud of our athletes!

Scholarships: Financial aid is ok. They are kind of a hassle to deal with

Academics: I loved the engineering school. It was a great place to learn, awesome professors, and a good learning environment.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: The drugs at Florida State University is at a minimum but the younger the college student the more likely they are involved in drinking, drugs, and sex.

Campus Housing: Dorms are about the size of other campus' I visited. The one I'm in has AC issues and instead of fixing it they gave me a humidifier. some of the dorms have very involved activities, others don't. If you want to have good things to do, get on the board to created them.

Health & Safety: I can't speak for the main campus, hence the lower grade, but the Panama City campus is very clean and very safe, it deserves an A+

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The students at FSU are, for the most part, really good looking! Also, the "strip," which is a strip/block of Tennessee St. is one of the main areas to go out clubbing or to bars with friends!

3 College Senior

Campus Food: The food on campus isn't anything to write home about, but it is varied. My suggestion would be to go to Fresh Foods if possible - it seems like they usually have better produce and a wider selection of meals to chose from.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: Everything is top notch at FSU. Athletics are great - we have a newly remodeled gym, multiple tennis and basketball courts, sand volleyball, soccer and football fields, and two different Intramural sport fields! There are two main libraries on campus (one that is 24/5 with limited hours on weekends)! Anything you need or want to have, you can get it at FSU.

Beautiful campus

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Although some of the buildings here are old and not as modern as most would like, our Johnston library was just renovated and is a beautiful ultra modern building with huge white hallways and see-through stair cases. The outside looks like the rest of the buildings which is covered in brick but once you go in you are astonished by how renovated and sleek it is. This is one of the several gems that FSU has to offer.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Fsu offers many different libraries and buildings in which you could use their computers. There computers range anywhere from semi-old Dell desktops to the newest Apple Macbook's that have all the latest softwares including Photoshop, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: At FSU, it's generally sunny unless it starts pouring. Even when there is a flash flood warning, there is still class.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is awful. Garages are usually full except on the roof. The best place to find a parking spot is by Smith/Kellum/McCollum/Rogers/Salley. DON'T MOVE YOUR CAR ON OR BEFORE GAMEDAY. You will never get your parking spot back.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most students here are Caucasian, but there are a decent amount of other races as well.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always have a safe feeling on campus. There are blue lights everywhere in case of danger and the campus police department are always around. The atmosphere and tradition make Florida State feel more like home.

Greek Life: There is a large population of students at FSU who participate in Greek life. During football season their presence is definitely felt. Most of the time they do not affect the lives of non-Greeks other than seeing signs or sidewalk chalk promoting one of their events.

Guys & Girls: The FSU campus is a very diverse one. We have people from every background and culture you can think of. Although we do have a lot of sorority/phrat presence, they do not dominate the school and most of them are not the typical roudy people you might imagine. There is something and someone for every type of person at FSU.

Technology: There are many places on campus to access computers. Multiple libraries with computer labs available. Each computer is equipped with the necessary downloads and the internet speed is usually very good. You can definitely get away without having your own personal computer but it does make life easier to have one. Most locations on campus have WiFi availability.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The school tends to flood when there is heavy rain. This is to be expected with an outdoor college campus but it is an inconvenience, especially living in Florida where it rains quite consistently. Usually the campus is full of people out on the grassy greens around the school though playing sports or just hanging out. The beautiful scenery is one of the reasons I chose this school!

Campus Housing: Living in Smith Hall for four months, I thought I was going to die. My room was literally the size of a prison cell, with my bed about six feet off the ground...with no ladder!! Every night I went through a complicated gymnastics routine just to get into bed. We shared our bedroom with about fifty other girls with NO sense of personal hygiene; it was common to find bodily fluids, undergarments, and waste products strewn across the bathroom floor on the weekends, and everyone hurried to shower first on Saturday so that they wouldn't have to shower after the showers were disgusting! While I was there, I became very sick and could hardly get out of bed, let alone go to class. Since then, the room I used to live in has been found to have BLACK MOLD, which I was allergic to; something they did not notice on THREE different occasions when they inspected the room! I was so sick and had so many infections when I left that the doctors told me I couldn't leave my parents' house; I've only just been cleared to go back out in public, and it's been two months! Every day I'm glad I transferred out of this school and this dorm hall!

Athletics: Football is the biggest sport at FSU. If you come to FSU then you will have to go to at least one football game at Doak Campbell Stadium. Just the feeling of being with 80,000 other students and alumni in support of FSU truly unifies our school. We have a ton of fan support and even have organizations like Lady Spirit Hunters who make signs, goody bags, and help the football players stay motivated.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus from FSU in an apartment complex called Grand Marc. It is fully secure with cameras, magnetic door keys, gates in the parking garages, magnetic keys to enter the building, and it is a two minute walk to campus. One con is that it is a little pricey, however you gain the safety aspect along with all of their amenities.

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.
