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.

5 College Student

Academics: The psychology major is the number one in the state of Florida. It is also the oldest and is very into research. The professors i have had so far are amazing and I love it here.

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: Like a typical college campus. Because this school has a well known football team there are more athletic guys walking around on campus than at smaller universities without athletic programs.

3 College Student

Scholarships: I am just starting the process, but it seems like a major pain in the behind.

3 College Junior

Majors: The internships I have had seem to be competitive. Most think naively that if they do a great job they will be offered a position. This is untrue. because the company offers internships there will be another round of students to do just what you did. I was offered employment from an internship but it just happen to be a right time right place situation. but the learning experience is worth it. just don't stress it too hard.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is always a party going on. Whether it's a club, frat party, group gathering, you can find something. Bowling and movie nights are also planned with friends. Transportation is provided on campus from most clubs.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Not much offered. I had exceptional grades and thought I would be able to get a scholarship from the school.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: I really wanted a bachelor's in Computer Science but could only go to school online as I work a full-time job. For two plus yrs., I searched and searched for schools, but they were only offering certificates in CS or degrees for IT majors. One day, during one of my routine searches, I ran across Florida State University and was amazed that if accepted I could earn a bachelor degrees in Computer Science...not a certificate, but a bachelor's! Well I immediately called, applied to FSU, was accepted, scraped the money from my piggy bank, and am happy to say that I half-way through the semester. They made it so easy, and because of FSU, I am able to pursue my dream!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There is numerous amount of food places to go eat on campus, mainly the Union. There is a bowling alley and libraries throughout campus. There is many organization to join on campus. And there is activities that occur at the Union on Wednesday.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: This college is old and it looks historic. Some of the building looks old and weary so now new ones are being built or torn down. There is multiple statue around campus

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I recieved an okay amount of scholarship and some grants, you have to show you need it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sport are pretty huge at Florida State. Many people would go and see the games, mainly the football games. We have a great gym which has an indoor track that looks down at the swimming pool. Also we are having another building built for athletic training.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many options for off campus housing. Many different apartment styles as well as a large amount of neighborhoods offering homes exclusively to students. Everything is very cost efficient and it always seem like there is a new apartment complex going up.

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.
