4 College Freshman

Local Area: Tallahassee has a lot for students to do. There are many in and out of school activities for students to participate in, and a wide variation of things to do during the weekends.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Although I am just in the beginning of my program I find it to be very effective. There is an above 95% graduation rate which is good to know. There are also resources available to help in any situation of need. I am looking forward to getting more into the courses that deal specifically with my major. A career goal of mine is to be able to get a job that interests me, which is why I chose to strive to be a civil engineer. I know that it may not be easy work, but I am excited for the challenges that lie ahead.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: FSU has a variety of apartment complexes around the area. They vary from top notch, expensive, socially desirable apartments with even a pool, tanning center, study rooms, etc. to less luxurious, cheap but extremely acceptable pricing. You can always find somewhere to live near campus, but if you are looking for a top notch place you should consider signing your lease by Thanksgiving break (for the next fall.) The costs vary - the more expensive places can go for about 690/monthly (4x4) to 400/monthly (4x4)

3 College Freshman

Parking: My school does all possible things to make the parking situation viable for everybody. There are plenty of garages/parking lots around campus. I truly don't think there could be any more garages, but the students also take the spots up fast, and unless you are headed to an 8am class, chances are you are going to have difficulty finding a spot. The ticketing will happen if you are parked in an unauthorized spot, but the pricing for the tickets is reasonable ($20-$25).

5 College Freshman

Technology: The computer labs and computers at the library at FSU are great, there are plenty available everywhere, and they all seem to run fast. I think that a lot of students bring their own computers so they leave the availability open for the few that for some reason cannot bring one. Obviously, it would be better to have one, because that would give you the convenience of being able to work from your own bedroom, but if you cannot have one it would not be a huge issue.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football is the main sport at FSU. Recently our basketball team has gotten better and more people are starting to attend more of the games.

3 College Junior

Majors: Not all major programs are limited admissions. For example, any student can become a Psychology student, there is no cap for admittance. Communications, on the other hand, is a limited access major and a student must meet specific requirements before gaining admission--even then, the number of students in the program is capped. I would check your programs website for additional information on admittance.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: Alcohol is fairly prevalent on campus. Any football weekend you are very likely to see tailgates with people playing beer pong or other drinking games in parking lots. At night, it is common to see people drinking and walking to bus stops to hit the bars. University Police try to enforce drinking laws, but there are so many students that there is only so much they can do.

1 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus is a daily challenge for any student who drives. If you drive to an 8AM class parking should be OK, but anything after that time and you are guaranteed to find full garages everywhere you look. Make sure to save a good chunk of time before any classes to try to find a spot. Your best method is to wait for other students walking to their cars and then take their spot.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life if a great way to meet new people and get involved in the Campus life. You will Volunteer around Campus and get Volunteer hours!! You will also get involved in fun activities, and get to know the girls/guys better.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: They all are readily available, and a great tool to use for your classes. Take advantage of all the usefull tools FSU has to offer!!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The girls are attractive overall, but they are also incredibly unintelligent and culturally boring at times.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Near campus there aren't that many places to choose from, especially if you want variety and healthy food.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There aren't heavy, heavy drugs on campus, but there is frequent under age drinking at parties and a lot of marijuana use, which is pretty common on most university campuses. If you don't get involved with it, it isn't like it will come find you. Don't give in to peer pressure and you're good.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: The town has everything you need, but it's certainly not a major city.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of apartment complexes within walking distance of campus. There are also tons of locals that rent older homes to students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Leave your house at least 30 minutes early if you plan on parking in one of the main garages before 2:00.

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: There are several 18 and up clubs, and several 21 and up clubs, so you can decide what atmosphere you want. Frat row has tons of parties, and there are always house parties near campus. There is a different bar for every niche scene you can think of.

3 College Senior

Majors: A typical internship is unpaid and the workload varies with every company.

4 College Senior

Majors: I really love the Marketing program, it's fun and in my opinion, very versatile. Most of the professors are very dedicated and love teaching new material from textbooks, keeping us up to date with the latest business stories, and giving us examples of when they used certain strategies in their past employments. Also, most guest speakers give internships!

4 College Senior

Majors: The process of getting into my program was relatively easy for me. Every Business program at FSU is selective, so not everyone gets in. However, I didn't have any trouble. If you're not good at math or finance, you will find it difficult to get in.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I was an education major. The internships were very helpful, but I still wanted more varied experiences. The coordination was great, and there was always someone there to help when needed. It's an unpaid internship, which is the only part about it that isn't so great.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: We have the only flying circus where students learn to be a part of it, and the school of music produces some of the best musicians and teachers in the country!

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Students look as typical as any other college or university. I do believe when I attended that there was a higher female to male ratio....

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Some of the buildings are really run down, but others that are new and up to date are beautiful and well kept

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.
