4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is big. You will not be able to walk ten steps without seeing someone sporting their greek letters on their bag, hat, etc.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: FSU's football team is amazing. Doak Campbell Stadium is always packed with 'Noles partaking in the Tomahawk Chop, especially in big games (such as against the Gators or the Canes).

4 College Senior

Transportation: Buses are constantly going on or off campus, and there is plenty of bus stops on campus. They even have an app where you can see when the next is bus so you know when just to catch it in time instead of not knowing. Also they have many different bus routes and sometimes more than one bus can run through main streets so you have many opportunities to get there even sooner.

Greek Life: While Greek life is important to some, the main form of unity that all students are bound by is that we are all studying at FSU

Drug Safety: FSU has a big campus where you can make plenty of friends that are not involved with drugs or alcohol! While substances can be found, as at every college, you can make the decision to not be around it.

5 College Junior

Weather: The weather of FSU is just as anyone would imagine: immaculate.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The sports at this school are great & all the students really support the teams.

5 College Junior

Weather: Especially nice in the winter months Nov-Mar temps are 60's, summer hot as expected after all you are in FL.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Football games are big, outside the school Tallahassee is a nice town reasonably close by, buses available. Better if you have a car but only use the car off campus. Lots of stores nearby.

3 College Junior

Parking: Difficult as is at most colleges, would recommend leaving the car at home if possible.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Weather in Tallahassee is great, especially October to April. The fall and spring are beautiful with lots of flowers on campus. The summer is hot (it is Florida after all) and having an umbrella for pop up thunderstorms is smart. The winter is mild although a light jacket is needed most mornings.

2 Recent Alumnus

Administration: I don't live on campus, so I can't contribute to anything about housing. Academically, plagiarism and cheating is taken very seriously, and many teachers will enforce this rule.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: There's a good mix of people. Many fraternity, preppy styles, country styles, artsy types... Girls are more preppy or not; a lot of individuals go to FSU.

Drug Safety: You don't hear a lot about drug activity at Florida State, but it really depends on who you spend time with.

5 College Senior

Athletics: We're awesome. The football team is and all of our other sports are too. Go noles!

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: It's a big school so you get a big mix of people. You pretty much get what you'd expect depending on where you go. If you go to a frat or sorority you'll meet people who care about Greek life and if you go to the fine arts building you'll find theatre and art majors. You have to go out if you want to meet people unless you're really social in class which can be hard. Everyone is usually nice and won't get in your way, but will help if you have a question.

Campus Food: There are enough restaurants within walking distance that if you get tired of campus dining you can go there or get it delivered. The on campus dining can get expensive if you don't have a meal plan.

4 College Senior

Weather: The biggest problem is rain. When hurricane season comes around it's difficult to get to class and stay dry. We also have thunderstorm and flood warnings without class cancellation. If you have an umbrella and dress correctly you'll be fine.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: For the most part, our campus is safe. However, there are still robberies that happen sporadically throughout the school year.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: My financial experience was great at Florida State University! I was offered the aid I needed to pay for school. The financial advisers are very friendly and work hard to serve the students. Also, the financial aid disburses on time! Reliable!

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The houses are grand but not very affordable for me.

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: There is a bus that is included in the cost of tuition.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I really enjoy my program. If I could do it all over again, I would study a little more. I hope to go to med school one day

4 College Student

Academics: All of their programs have professors who are experts in their field. They are always willing to help and answer any questions you have. They go above and beyond for you.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There are many new apartment complexes that are luxurious, our you could live in the cheaper apartments that shuttle you onto campus for free.

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.
