4 College Senior

Overall Experience: We have a great career center where students can go for drop-in advising to get help with finding part-time/full-time jobs, internships, resume/cover letter writing, mock interviews, career fairs, etc.

Athletics: We love our team and we aren't afraid to show it! All of our sports teams are amazing. Football season is the best. Everyone dresses up in garnet and gold and pack the stadium. We have a lot of great game day traditions.

Academics: I'm a psychology major, and I absolutely love it! The professors are amazing and all of the classes are extremely interesting. The work load isn't bad. Most of the psych classes only consist of 4 exams throughout a semester, but like any area of study, there's a lot of information to remember. There are plenty of research opportunities for students looking to go to graduate school, and they're also great opportunities to get letters of recommendation. The psych advisers are always emailing us updated lists of internships and jobs. They also are a huge help with deciding on what you want to do after you graduate and help you stay on track to achieving your post-grad goals.

Party Scene: Whether you just want to hang out with a few friends over drinks or go out to a club, there are plenty of options.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: We live in Florida so for most of the year the students will be seen wearing shorts, tanks, crop tops, and flip flops. We take a lot of pride in our team so we often wear a lot of team colors around campus. There's a lot of diversity on campus, and there really is no typical student.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe when I'm on campus. The campus police along with the local police department work together to keep this campus safe. When there is a problem, the school has an emergency alert system that sends text messages and emails to students and faculty informing us of any dangerous situations that may require us to seek shelter, and continue to keep us updated until the situation is under control.

Majors: I'm a senior psychology major, and I absolutely love it! The professors are amazing. Most of the courses only consist of 4 exams throughout a semester so the workload isn't bad. All of the classes are extremely interesting, but there's a lot of information to remember. There are a ton of research opportunities available for students interested in graduate programs who need experience, and they're an excellent opportunity for letters of recommendation. The psych advisers always send out emails about internships and jobs that are available. The advisers also help students determine what they want to do after they graduate and make sure they're on the right track to achieve their post-grad goals.

Off-Campus Housing: It's difficult to find reasonably priced student housing that's in decent condition, but there are a lot of options conveniently located close to campus. There's usually plenty of parking spots for residents, but most places require parking passes so that visitors have to park in the few visitor spots available or they risk being towed. Overall, the housing available is sufficient enough for a college student's needs.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: The degree requirement system they have online was often incorrect, but besides that the process was great.

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.
