4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Buses Are Great – FSU has a really good bus system. The busses go all throughout the campus and come almost every 10 minutes. Sometimes a little longer or a little quicker depending the time of day. They are dependable to take to class without having to worry about being on time. It is also free for any students to take and there are many easy to find bus stops.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: There are many computers in the libraries and the computer lab for students to use at anytime during the day. They get really crowded during exam weeks but other than that you can usually find a computer to use. There is WIFI almost everywhere so a lot of students bring laptops with them to campus. The internet works well and is reliable for getting work done and socializing.

Academics: The classes are different. Any teacher can throw out an assignment and claim that you can learn from the experience, but professors at Florida State always stress the importance of learning over fancy essays and credit. With all of the clubs, student groups, leadership opportunities, and study abroad scholarships, Florida State offers many different unique ways to build experience and learn hands-on. There is also many ways to receive help outside of class with ACE tutoring and study groups.

Drug Safety: Definitely a Party School – FSU's police force, SGA, and other organizations do less to inhibit the partying that is inevitable on a top 10 party school and do more to educate students of partying unsafely. Safe bus and Night Nole are provided for those who do not have a DD.

Overall Experience: Exactly What I Wanted – I have always wanted to attend Florida State but attending college can be scary even if it's where you wanted to go. Florida State's generous attitude and engaging campus made being away from home so easy. With such a rich history, it's hard not to enjoy the spirit that comes with attending this highly-respected university. There is so much tradition and pride, it's hard not to become enthusiastic and be proud of your school. Football games are awesome, parties are awesome, libraries and tutoring make it easy to catch up if you get too off-track, and there are plenty of clubs and organizations for all of those in-between a partier and a scholar.

Campus Housing: A Place for Everyone – Housing at Florida State is so popular, that many freshman must be put on a waiting list. Even the older facilities have something to offer- a fun and social environment. The newer facilities are usually for upper-classmen but offer more space and still very close proximity to classes. SGA does a large part to invest in residence hall-wide events catered for students who live on campus.

Athletics: Everybody gets into the varsity sports at FSU. We have a long history of tradition. Even people not involved in sports can join our student boosters and get guaranteed tickets to all home games and discounts on away games. We have many great facilities and even a dining hall for student-athletes- though all students may tour the facilities and use the dining hall. Besides varsity sports, we have many club sports and intramural sports students can join. Club and intramural sports are very popular and all students can join.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Not Too Bad – There is a heavy police presence on campus, but as long as you arent being stupid and making a fool of yourself you wont get in trouble.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Excellent Psychology Program – I think the psychology program here at FSU is great. There are many different fields of study, and many opportunities to take part in studies and advance in the field. From my experience all of the teachers and advisors are more than willing to help you

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Relatively Safe – Although there is some criminal activity that occurs on campus at night, there are many options for safe transportation on campus, as well as around the city

1 College Freshman

Parking: Its Impossible – it is almost impossible to find parking,
some people take 45 minutes

3 College Freshman

Technology: It Can Get Crowded – during rush hours its very hard to get a computer to print stuff,
I advice having your own laptop

3 College Freshman

Administration: Punishments Can Be Tough – but only if you do something really dumb,
stay safe, and be smart about what you do
and nothing is illegal until you get caught

Guys & Girls: There Are Pretty Good Looking People – There are pretty good looking people,
depending on your taste,
if you like blonde hair, blue eyes, then you're good

Transportation: Free Buss Shuttles at a Ton of Locations – The bus drivers are very friendly and the ride is free. There are a ton of locations to be picked up and dropped off. Very convenient service.

5 College Junior

Majors: It's one of the more relaxed audition processes I've had. Not that I was relaxed. But generally everyone is very easy going. They don't stress you out at all. You and your audition group warm up with a couple BFAs. And then you're divided into rooms where one of the BFA professors will watch you do your two pieces. And then he or she may give you a direction or two. And then the call back sheet goes up which will have 20 or so names on it. If you're called back, you get to do your pieces for all the teachers and the BFA students. And then they'll ask you a couple questions. And send you on your way.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love my program. I can't speak for the BA program. But the BFA program is tight! Check it out if you want to pursue Acting.

Athletics: F*****' Incrdible – I mean, come on now... It's Florida State University! Go Noles!!!!

5 College Junior

Majors: BFA Acting – I'm very lucky. I've had the best teachers. They've absolutely changed my life. I mean, anybody pursuing Acting in an institution of higher learning is bound to have life changing experiences in their classes. But, mine have been so positive. I've learned about the deepest parts of myself due to my training. And I've only been in school two years. If you come to Florida State for BFA Acting, you'll receive the most individualized guidance. And I do mean guidance. It's a journey. You'll experience the belly of the whale while you're here. But, you'll have the best help along the way.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Not Too Shabby – There are definitely an abundance of scholarships, but you have to dig for it. Since it is a pretty large university, going to the financial aid office may be a little bit of a hassle because of the wait time.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Special of Times – It's definitely something that everyone should at least try once and if you find that you like it then keep going because it is extremely convenient being on campus. Personally, I wanted to have pets so of course I could not continue living in the dorms.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not Bad for Being Near Urban Areas – there have been a few robberies but they are taken care of quickly. i usually feel pretty safe

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Same Thing Over and Over – somewhat bland food at a ridiculous price every semester

Off-Campus Housing: Not Bad for on Campus – compared 2 other universities fsu has decent housing

4 College Senior

Transportation: Pretty Good – I have not had a car all 4 years here, I have even lived on campus, and have never had a serious problem with the public transportation

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.
