3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Personally I believe all dormatories have their flaws. However, at FSU quiet hours are not enforced very well and the showers have poor water pressure and heating.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Tallahassee has a great selection of American and Barbecue cuisine, as well as a wide variety of different cultural restaurants such as hispanic, Caribbean, greek, and more. The quality is best at family owned restaurants and the pricing is decent enough for a college student budget.

Athletics: The school spirit at Florida State University is palpable, especially during game days. Though football is the most popular sport to celebrate, students show support for other sports as well.

Local Area: The area of Tallahassee is beautiful with tons of options for dining and nightlife. It is particularly student populated though and I find road congestion during the day to be a current issue.

Party Scene: The party life is a huge component in being a student at Florida State University. You are guaranteed a good time basically every night of the week and are always in for drink and food specials. Happy hour is the place to meet people on the weekends. The party scene also extends out into Greek life, where Fraternity and Sorority houses are well known for being the life of the party.

Health & Safety: I always feel very safe on campus during the day but at night the campus is not always well lit and there have been many instances of sexual assault after heavy drinking. Regardless, the campus administration does an excellent job of providing services for victims and sexual assault is never tolerated.

Administration: Classroom policies are always strictly enforced but regular on campus activity, especially in dorms, are often very lenient. I am never surprised to hear of the use of drugs or alcohol within or around campus.

Majors: I have not yet had an internship but I do intend to by my Junior year. My biggest concern with finding an internship is mainly about whether it will offer me a fun valuable experience rather than just fulfillment of the credits needed. I am hoping to find one in the magazine industry.

Scholarships: Financial aid is a process that took me a little while but was beneficial regardless.

Off-Campus Housing: Although there are plenty of options for housing near campus, most of it comes with high price and low quality. Often apartments are small and built by poor construction due to the desire to fit as many students in as quickly and cost efficiently as possible. Personally I have dealt with my fair share of construction default and it has not been fun.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is always a good deal catered towards college students. I often find vegetarian and vegan options as well as options for low cost & late night delivery. Great range of original dining options rather than typical food chains, although those are also always an option in Tallahassee.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: The surrounding city is downtrodden and unkempt. It gets sketchy late at night and you can find yourself in the middle of a neighborhood you don't want to be in very quickly.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: From what I understand, all one would have do to receive financial aid is accept the loan they are approved for from the school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Florida State University is a highly accredited university with outstanding professors, resources and networking possibilities.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is not very well lit at night so walking home alone is quite unnerving as a female.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's great for those who love to go out. There's things going on every night of the week except Sundays when students cram homework. The activities don't interfere with those who don't like to go out however.

Guys & Girls: Everyone dresses how they like. There are the fraternity boys and the dance majors, the goth girls and the preppy girls. Everyone is accepted and looks range from below average to above average.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I got lucky with my dorm. It was built in 2010 and is cleaned very often. My friend however lives in a dorm where she must keep the temperature below 60 or mold will grow on her clothes. There is not enough space to fit two desks and the beds and built into concrete walls.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a Mcdonalds within walking distance, But everything else is two miles down the road and is all big name fast food chains like Jimmy John's and Burger King.

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.
