5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The Health Center is grade A, absolutely phenomenal. Always helpful, informed, and pleasant. I have never received better treatment at a facility and felt more welcomed. I also feel very safe on campus, campus police is great at directing traffic and are always patrolling.

Diversity: A lot of student affiliations opportunities.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: FSU has great amenities, but you have to seek them yourself. I love all the cozy study spots on campus. The student union has a variety of places to choose from my favorite is the sushi stop. The brick is very aesthetically pleasing. There is a lot student involvement opportunities.

4 College Junior

Administration: The campus is not strict in the sense, they just want the campus to be as safe as possible.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I was a transfer here so I had to pick my off-campus housing quickly. Tallahassee is a college-town and a lot landlords prey on college students and take advantage of them. I pay about $500 in rent a month because our utility bill always is "over". And the management is always clueless on what is happening with their residents.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This university is my dream school, and I have made many sacrifices to be here. I live paycheck to paycheck and work about 30 hours a week to stay on top my bills. The transition is hard because the academics are superior, but overall I would say I am blessed to be attending FSU.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Always packed with students, very time consuming to get one-on-one time with an officer. Not a lot of help with transfer student scholarships, mainly just loans. Not very personable except one main officer who has guided me through the loan process. Also, they never pick up the phones if you had a minor question.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The Wellness Center was recently built, but has proved its worth over and over. Along with regular doctors, there is a women's clinic, a travel clinic, lab testing center, x-ray center, physical therapy and many other services that are offered to the students. The campus police are also good. They have regular routes and they offer self-defense classes to female students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: While I do not participate in many activities on campus, I have very happy memories on the few that I did go to. I personally love going to the campus movie theater. They will show movies that were released a few months ago and sometimes have special features of movies that have yet to be released. I would definitely choose to go to FSU again if I had the chance because I have met amazing people and I have enjoyed my time here.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are several different types of housing options for students, but what the student can actually use is completely different. Some places are so expensive only the wealthy students can live there. The cheaper housing are more accessible but there is more competition for spots and there can be problems with the housing in general.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are many different ideas and opinions on campus and it is not hard to find a group that agrees with you. There are many different religious organizations as there as political. The economic status of students also varies greatly, with some students being very wealthy and other barely able to pay their bills.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: There are several restaurants on campus. The majority have regular hours, but there are one or two that are open all the time. There are food trucks on and near campus that students use. There are also the two campus dining halls that many students frequent as well.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There are several night clubs that students frequent. Some are closer to campus than others, but they are never more than two miles away from campus. They are all along the bus routes so students have that option.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: FSU really tries to accommodate all of their students on some level. We have a on-campus movie theater, a clinic, a student union and so much more. There is always several different activities going on throughout the day and night.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid website is very helpful in finding different scholarships, but the office itself is annoying. If you try calling, you will be put on hold for at least 30 minutes. And the office is always busy unless you arrive extremely early. The processing of documents is slow as well.

4 College Junior

Administration: For classes, attendance varies, especially if the professor is not required to take attendance. However, cheating is taken very seriously and the punishments are severe.

3 College Junior

Local Area: There are many different places that a student can experience, but the biggest problem is safety. There can be a lot of crime sometimes and there a some neighborhoods that students are told to avoid if possible. However, there are several night clubs, some malls and there are seasonal attractions.

5 College Junior

Transportation: The campus buses are truly a life-saver for many students. They can be a bit sporadic, but they get students to their classes and back home again. It is also convenient because one of the bus routes goes by a grocery store so shopping is easier for those who do not have a car.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Many of the athletes have a self-entitled attitude, especially the football players. Our teams perform well and have given our school more recognition, but that should not mean that they are more important than the average student. They are given new shoes every year at a on-campus Nike store. Professors will allow camera crews to film during class. The majority of students are very supportive of the teams, but personally, I would like there to be more consideration for the average student.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of attractive people on campus. Many girls are athletic and so are the guys. However the looks tend to be the stereotypical preppy look. There are a lot of rich students on campus, so this is not that surprising.

Greek Life: Greek students are not seen as rude, but they are not all the accepting either. A person can watch a house and the same type of girls with walk in and out. It is the same way for the guys.

Weather: The fall and winter here in Tallahassee is beautiful. It get cold but not to cold to the point where it snows. The only time the weather sucks is in the summer because it rains out of no where, but thats florida for you.

Drug Safety: The drug scene depends on who you associate yourself with, the popular activity at this university is drinking. It is known for a great nightlife so alcohol is very popular. However our school enforces the use of it illegally on campus.

Scholarships: I personally didn't receive any financial aid or scholarships, but I know many people who did. The only real issue is they are slow with processing money and requests.

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.
