5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are areas that are designated for those who are 21 and up but there are also areas that are for those who are 18 and up. The clubs can be a lot of fun, theres generally good music and a lot of fun dancing and there are occasionally famous musicians who come here. The parties are a lot of fun though because Greek life is a big deal on campus. There is always somewhere to go and something to do.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity sports at Florida State are a really big deal, especially the football games. Students get decked out in crazy FSU attire and spend hours cheering on the team. They are a lot of fun.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am very happy with my decision to declare Communication Science and Disorders as my major. The application process was easy but very competitive to get into. My career goal is to become a speech language pathologist.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The parking permit is free which is very convenient and helpful, but there is limited parking on campus when classes are in session and it can take a long time to find a spot sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I found the application process for my major of Communication Science and Disorders very easy to follow. The application was primarily based on GPA.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I've always felt safe on campus. The campus is lit pretty well at night and there are safety buttons to push if you feel uncomfortable. There are safe vans that will drive you around on campus if you are really that worried about it.

3 College Senior

Parking: They recently added a new garage but its far away from everything. It also seems as if they are steadily decreasing the amount of student spots available each year. If you are willing to wait, you will almost always get a spot.

3 College Junior

Weather: It rains a lot in Tallahassee in the summer and the winter months are really cold but it doesn't snow.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms for the freshman are really old and don't have bathrooms in the rooms, instead there are community bathrooms on each floor. The newer dorms are for the upperclassmen but are more expensive. I would recommend living off campus.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: The drug scene at FSU is not as big as other college towns, it depends on the people you hang out with. Smoking weed is the biggest drug use. Drinking alcohol is very popular at FSU.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining halls have good food, but a lot of people get tired of the options quickly. A meal plan is a waste of money because there are only two main dining halls and you only get a small amount of flex bucks for other dining places on campus.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There are a lot of parking spaces but it's still not always enough. A lot of students who live on campus cannot park by their residence halls because there are not enough spaces or certain spaces can only be used by faculty or during the weekend.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on FSU's campus, including religious affiliation, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and race/ethnicity. There are also a lot of organizations on campus to display this diversity and help people find a place and people they feel comfortable with; however, I think this grade could be improved by more outreach and teaching about diversity. It's great to join a group of people that are like you, but it is even better to learn about others who are not like you.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: As a Meteorology major, the required math and science courses are difficult, but if you have the love and passion for weather and put in the time for studying, Meteorology is a blast! I wouldn't choose any other major!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are some great ones and some not so great ones. Majority of students go off campus after first year.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I can say good. we do have buses running late and will be no problem contactin them whenever we need it.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: we have a nice weather during winter and to hot during summer and do not affect my rate.

3 College Senior

Athletics: i think the program is great way or students to learn new skills, socialize, learn and provides opportunities to advance to a career in sports. I enjoy watching sport events and think they promote togetherness and a sense of school pride. I am glad fsu has A porting program and proud of our athletes!

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Financial aid is ok. They are kind of a hassle to deal with

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I loved the engineering school. It was a great place to learn, awesome professors, and a good learning environment.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: The drugs at Florida State University is at a minimum but the younger the college student the more likely they are involved in drinking, drugs, and sex.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are about the size of other campus' I visited. The one I'm in has AC issues and instead of fixing it they gave me a humidifier. some of the dorms have very involved activities, others don't. If you want to have good things to do, get on the board to created them.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I can't speak for the main campus, hence the lower grade, but the Panama City campus is very clean and very safe, it deserves an A+

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The students at FSU are, for the most part, really good looking! Also, the "strip," which is a strip/block of Tennessee St. is one of the main areas to go out clubbing or to bars with friends!

3 College Senior

Campus Food: The food on campus isn't anything to write home about, but it is varied. My suggestion would be to go to Fresh Foods if possible - it seems like they usually have better produce and a wider selection of meals to chose from.

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.
