4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm still slowly in the works of my psychology and criminology major, but I'm loving every moment of it. All my professors are extremely helpful and don't mind helping you out even if it seems like a silly question. Also, here at FSU, most professors are doing research which amazes because no matter how much they seem to know, they always reach out and try to discover new things and help out our community which I think is really amazing and makes me give them a whole level of respect and admiration for them.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Being a double major in psychology and criminology, there are a range of internships I could select from like shadowing professionals at their work to becoming an assistant and learning the ropes of one of the possible jobs I could attain in the future. However all internships are demanding at first and many unpaid, but its the experience and the friendships that I will created and gain that makes everything worthwhile

4 College Freshman

Athletics: At FSU, everyone breathes in varsity sports. It's almost a culture here for more than 2/3 of the student population to celebrate and cheer on for our teams in varsity sports. It gives us an identity that we all want and some of us need, a bonding that connects us no matter where we came from or what we believe in.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The program I got into was rather smooth due to the fact that I applied and acknowledge that Psychology was the major I declared myself to be every since I was a little girl. However, I've discussed with my adviser and it took some time and paperwork and some moments of confusion, but now I'm a double major in Psychology and Criminology.

Campus Housing: Everything is close and within walking distance,and helps you to learn your way around campus.

Diversity: There are many different communities and clubs based on race and ethnicity, and almost everyone could belong to one or more of those groups. No one should have trouble finding ethnically similar people.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is much more about the experience than the actual buildings. I'd suggest living on campus freshman year and getting the meal plan. It allows you to get to know so much about what is going on on our campus

Transportation: Being a Florida State Student means that students can get anywhere in Tallahassee for free. There are six bus routes, and we have an app that shows you in real time where the buses are, that is convienent. Also we offer a SAFE bus that will pick up students anywhere on campus and drop them off anywhere on campus at night, for safety. We have a night nole bus to take students around to local entertainment spots Thursday-Saturday evenings. There is also an option for a cheap cab ride for students. Its easy to get around safely and quickly.

Technology: There are two main libraries here at FSU: Strozier library (main humanities library) and Dirac library (for the sciences). Both libraries have computers, printers, and copy machines available for student use. It doesn't cost much to print from the library but I would recommend having your own computer and printer as the libraries get packed around midterms and finals week. The Wifi is free on campus all you need to do is sign in with your FSU username and password. Granted in certain lecture halls and classrooms the wifi connection is terrible but chances are you are supposed to be paying attention to the lecture anyways.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Parking can be a nightmare on campus but it is not impossible to find a parking space at FSU if you are looking in the right places at the right times. There are four parking garages on campus but only the Traditions parking garage is open and free all week long. Always park nose-in to the spot otherwise you will get a parking citation. Other ways you can get parking citations include parking in reserved spots, parking in handicapped spots, parking in lots in which your permit does not cover,etc. Citation costs range from $30.00 to $100.00, so do your best not to get a ticket. If you live near campus or on campus there is really no need for a car. The FSU campus is large but you can walk from one end of campus to the other in 15 minutes tops and there is always the FSU bus transportation during the day and a FSU safe bus for the evenings.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Some of the older dorms didn't help in times of sickness.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many options but a lot of the quality places are relatively expensive.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity football is huge at Florida State. Just about everyone goes to the games or are involved in tailgates for the game. Baseball is also pretty big since we always seem to do well there.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: For the most part, the Greeks are service oriented

5 College Junior

Transportation: The transportation at FSU is awesome. Buses run often

5 College Junior

Academics: Florida State University has a wide variety of courses available for every type of student

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am currently studying Hospitality and Tourism Management, as well as Spanish at FSU and I love both of them. The classes are intriguing and the teachers in these majors are great. The advisors for my majors are excellent they let me know what classes I should be taking each semester to make sure I am on track at all times. They also host a "Job Fair" where local and non-local businesses come and set up booths to speak to you about their companies. The Hospitality sector at FSU really makes an excellent effort to help their students find jobs and internships. Within my first year they helped me get a job at The Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida, which is where I hope to end up when I graduate. Everyone involved in the Hospitality and Tourism Management major is eagerly helping me attain my goals one day at a time.

Local Area: Tallahassee is a great place to be as far as colleges go. Florida State University is located in the capitol of Florida so there is always something going on. It can be known as a party school, but that is only because we have so much pride in our sports teams. Football season at Florida State University is life changing! The campus itself is incredibly beautiful with mostly brick buildings and the stadium is awesome! Nightlife is big in Tallahassee and the strip is always fun to go to, but there are clubs as well. The food is well college food, cheap. Outside of the city there are hiking trails and sink holes which make Tallahassee a pretty well rounded place to be!

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Really depends on how you see this one. The campus police are pretty strict and I thought that was great because it made me feel safer. Other people might think that this will cramp their style but I thought my safety was more important than some other things.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The athletics are great at FSU. Varsity and IM sports are both really popular. Are teams are pretty great all around and are students have some of the most school spirit around. The athletic facilities are great for athletes and also surprisingly great for students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: There are a lot of clubs and places to eat. There are also farmer's markets and festivals and many other things to do. It has the best of a city and the best of a small town. Could use a little more performing arts besides what is provided by FSU.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The advertising program is great. Really small classes and classes that really prepare you for internships and your first job. I am still using things I learned in the classes and I'm on my second job!

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The closer to campus you are, the more hectic living is. There are plenty of quality apartments for cheap if you are willing to just live more than 5 minutes from campus. They also tend to be safer.

3 College Senior

Parking: There is plenty of parking available, but unfortunately, it's difficult to provide ample parking for a huge university. The bus system is convenient, if long, but most times I have to park at the LDS church next to the medical building as a last resort, and that only works if you're LDS like I am.

3 College Senior

Weather: Tallahassee weather is great, rarely gets too cold, though it is somewhat muggy in the summer. The campus can get flooded, it doesn't have the greatest drainage system.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
