4 College Junior

Party Scene: The night life is a lot of fun and there are a lot of places to choose from. There are a lot of underage kids that get away with it, but the cops are always outside keeping check. The only downfall is that it is dangerous to walk and if you don't live on campus, its difficult to get there and that there is always a cover and it's not cheap.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life has a strong presence throughout the campus at FSU. It is easy to tell who belongs to a fraternity of sorority, however, it isn't one of the most important things. Students who are not involved in Greek life at FSU have equal opportunities as those who are.

5 College Junior

Weather: The weather is great. Sunny most of the time, and rainy occasionaly. It gets cold, but not unbearably cold. Best of both worlds!

3 College Junior

Technology: The computers are good! They get used up though during finals week

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The food is awesome! Anything you want, any time that you want it they have. They have a few nice restraunts, and a ton of causual, good restraunts to eat at.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: So far, I've had the best experience with the financial aid process. They have done everything for me and have made it so easy.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: They offer good restraunts and everyone is always very helpful.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Sports are kind of a big deal here. Football season has to be the most intense at Florida State University. The students are passionate supporters and die hard fans for life. There is plenty of school spirit and the stadium is packed with alumni and current students rallying on their team. It's a fun and lively atmosphere than no student at FSU should miss out on.

Parking: Cost of permit is included in tuition but still isn't cheap and at times you aren't guaranteed parking because freshmen leave their cars in overnight garages for entire semesters so commuting students have to struggle during prime hours to find a spot. They also took away first level parking for students and are now designated faculty spots which limits out spaces. You can get lucky w parking of you pick garages far from the main campus buildings but it is a tiring walk during the hot days in FL.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Not to strict parties all the time. Its a college town.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Close to campus; however, not in the best location. Apt complex is very concerned on integrating residents by throwing parties and socials.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Tallahassee is a small area- but there isn't much for underage students off campus.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Florida State offered me a scholarship when I was accepted- and it was processed in a timely manner.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is good for making friends- but it can be time consuming and demanding to maintain that social schedule

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus system is highly effective- and very comfortable!

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Nightlife is mediocre. There are tons of bars and clubs to go to in Tally, but in my opinion the best times are when you go to house parties. (You'll find one every night)
Transportation is awesome. Night Nole.

Campus Food: The dining halls on campus are very nice, but the food isn't exactly what I would define as good. There are lots of fried and buttery foods which are bad for your health while the fruits and veggies are very limited.

1 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is a big drug scene at FSU. Almost everyone you meet in Tallahassee could hook you up with drugs of any type. Alcohol is of course the number one drug of choice next to Marijuana and MDMA.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Accessibility and safety are offered at a good rate

4 College Senior

Transportation: The best method of transportation is taking campus buses. Although during class times they can sometimes get very full, there are always buses running so you have options. Public transportation (Star Metro) is also convenient for running to Publix or heading back to your apartment.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The honors dorms on campus and the new apartment, Traditions, are the best options because they are brand new. Most people I knew have had a positive experience unless they lived in the oldest dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The qulaity is good for the most part but the hours of availibility for some dining locations aren't as much as I was expecting

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Has plenty of buses and lots of nighttime pickup lines

4 College Junior

Transportation: The bus system is very convenient when going from class to class or if you're all the way across from campus, there is always a bus that comes around. Our buses even go off campus so if you happen to live off campus and there is a bus stop near you, then that's an even bigger plus! As far as parking goes, FSU has several student parking garages and many outdoor parking lots, so the problem isn't that you can't find a spot, it's more or less finding a spot that is closest to all your classes or the Union.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I personally did not get the meal plan, but I have gone in a few times with friends just to grab a bite. Plus, I lived in the dorms and had to buy my own food so I got tired of eating frozen meals almost every single day. The dining hall gave me a chance to have something that was close enough to "home cooked" food whenever I needed a break from restaurants or TV dinners. The only reason why i give it a B is due to the fact that if you don't come in at the right time, the food will be served cold and there may or may not be enough silverware to go around for everyone.

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.
