Athletics: Go Noles! Overall we have one of the best athletic programs in the country! We also have so much school spirit. We rank in the top 10 for fan attendance as well. We have great athletics for men and for women. Its great to go to all the games, and they are FREE for students!

Drug Safety: It Is Present – At our school most of the parties and drinking take place off campus, but there is some drinking in residence halls. If it is discovered there are severe consequences. During football game and tailgating there is pretty much drinking everywhere.

Health & Safety: Weekly Crime Emails – there are measures in place to protect students that seek protection/prevention. But the frequency of crime alert emails is rediculous. It seems like the same armed robbbery reocurrs weekly, you'd think more would be done by now to catch the perps and/or to prevent more assualts.

Campus Food: OK but Nothing Special – The food is edible-- they make some things really well and there is rarely a shortage of anything but its nothing youd necessarily want to go back for seconds for.

Academics: You Actually Learn Things! The teachers are always willing to help you and only want to see you do well. Classes are graded fairly and most of them have a pretty lenient attendance policy.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall Great Experience – Nice and helpful faculty, wide variety of majors and classes, frequent campus events, knowledgeable teachers, beautiful campus, great nightlife

4 College Senior

Local Area: Simple for a College Student – Many things within walking distance: food, housing, nightlife. A bit congested during the day (small roads) but nothing too serious.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek or Geek – Unfortunately, as a non-greek, I've encountered instances where not being involved in the lifestyle put me in a negative light. There are many bars, clubs, and events that are dominated by Greek life. Whenever a non-Greek shows up, it is easy to feel isolated. On the other hand, there are many things to do without being part of a sorority or fraternity.

Overall Experience: Great Times, Great People – I've thoroughly enjoyed my time in Tallahassee at the Florida State University. I had many great experiences both on an off campus. I've seen many great musicians for free and cheered on the Seminole football team during games. I learned about economics from John Stossel and ate the famous midnight breakfast several times. I studied in our 24 hour library when I needed to. It is important to balance work and play, but it can be done.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Easy to Find Affordable, Clean Housing – Tallahassee has a lot of options for houses and apartments. Some apartments come completely furnished and are in walking distance from the school or on the bus line. Many times, rent includes the cost of utilities and cable/internet. My first apartment was spacious, on the FSU bus route, and included my own bathroom, for 500 a month. Be cautious when looking for houses, however. Landlords can make things difficult and they tend to require more upkeep.

Campus Food: There Are Many Options, Most of Which Are Decent. FSU has two main dining halls with many options. One can find pizza, sandwiches, wraps, pasta, dessert, etc at these two places. At the union, one can find a Chilis, Subway, and Pollo Tropical, as well as sushi, frozen yogurt, assorted salads, and crepes. There is something for everyone.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Lot of Outside Activities – There are plenty of things to do outside of the campus.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A Common Issue – Overall, FSU is a pretty big party school. Peer pressure is not a big deal, but its not difficult to find drugs and alcohol. The school will enforce its policies pertaining to drugs and alcohol if you get caught violating them.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Good luck finding a more Diverse school – This place is amazingly diverse. There are students of every type all over campus. They have plenty of opportunities with all the groups and events devoted to diversity. It's a total melting pot here. I've been to a lot of other schools that seem to have a sort of average student identity. FSU has everyone

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm Not in It, but Those Who Are Enjoy It. Greek life is a pretty big deal at FSU, but its not a big deal if youre not Greek. A lot of kids try not to associate with them. They seem to like what they do.

Drug Safety: Not Noticeable – Living on campus my freshman year I think I heard about drugs only a couple of times. I never really saw or smelled anything. I'm sure that you could find drugs if you wanted to, but if you're not into them, there should be absolutely no trouble avoiding them.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Process Was Difficult – As a master degree student getting hlep for fincancial aid is lacking

5 College Freshman

Majors: I absolutely adore being in exercise science, it is similar to biology but it does not include evolution or plants. Exercise science focuses more on the body which I love. I want to become a cardiovascular doctor or a physician's assistant for trauma. I am slightly concerned with getting into a physician's assistant program, but after I get in I believe everything will be smooth sailing. Doctors are always needed.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Pretty Easy – The process of getting into my exercise science major was pretty easy for me because I came in with a lot of credits already, but for others it maybe more tedious. There wasn't really an abnormal application process. To declare, I believe you need a specific GPA and likewise you need to complete a certain amount and specific credits.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Constantly Rated – Maxim magazine has consistently rated FSU one of the best party schools in the nation. Our nightlife has a fair mix between 21+ clubs and bars that allow 18 year olds. Happy hours in Tallahassee (usually Fridays) take place at Potbelly's and the nightclub Paradigm. Both are great venues that cater to different groups (Potbelly's has more of a Southern feel and Paradigm is great for LGBT students and people with a taste for techno/dubstep.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Best in the Nation – Our football team, men's baseball team, women's basketball team, women's soccer team and men's basketball team are some of the best in the nation. We have consistently made it to each sports' particular championship tournament, or in football's case, had an incredible season and a good recruitment class.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: Not Enough – While the computers are definitely high-functioning and work well, there aren't nearly enough at FSU. In the evening, you can walk into one of our libraries and see every single computer taken. This may be made up for by our awesome amount of mass-media/production equipment.

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.
