4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Pretty Good – I won't say the guys here are better looking than the ones from my home country, I still think Brazil is better for that matter, but FSU is not far behind. You can find all kinds of person and there's no lack of good looking people all around.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I'm Brazilian and it feels awesome to me that not all FSU students are Americans, because the gender and nationaly diversity is a big deal to me. The campus is really pretty, the weather is awesome and althought academics feels a bit less important than atletics (that's a huge deal around here) I feel I'm learning a lot. I'm really happy to be studying here.

5 College Senior

Majors: I love it because I really enjoy it. The teachers are great, the building is very new, and the courses are interesting.

5 College Senior

Administration: They are everywhere- very strict, but it gives a sense of safety around the campus.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The nightlife at FSU has many varieties to choose from. Theres the bars, the clubs and the fraternity house parties. It all depends on your choice of people. Greek life is very big at FSU so any where you go you're bound to see sorority girls and fraternity boys. The clubs are full of a more diverse group of people while the bars are more of select groups. All the clubs and bars accept entry for 18 and up but you must be 21 to drink of course. Tallahassee literally provides the best transportation at night so kids to drink at night. Theres busses 24 hours, theres 4 dollar cabs for students, and the clubs provide transportation as well.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics in my school bring the students together. Theres a lot of school spirit at every game. The students and alumnis bleed garnet and gold because they truly love their school and support it all the way. We have great team performance that is only getting better. The athletic facilities are state of the art. Tail gates at Florida State University pump up the fans for their games. Win or loose the fans still love their FSU sports teams.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Florida States campus is loved and adored by all of the students. Florida State makes their facilities accessible to everyone and provide the best services for its students. All the facilities get students involved on campus. The student center always has something new everyday bringing in all different types of people together. The general campus is clean and gives off a warm feeling due to the schools involvement with the students. Theres an activity for everyone on campus you can never get bored because theres so many things to choose from.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Is the best campus, it works really hard to give everyone something to do or get involved with.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is super open to different people. I don't think you will see one alike person but everyone is accepting. The boys tend to be more jerkish than all the girls. The girls stick together on this campus.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Everyone is super friendly and mostly college students. There is always something going on at the campus or even downtown.

4 College Senior

Majors: I Love It! I'm a psychology major and I love it! I always wanted to be a pediatrician but the course load for a medical degree was too extensive and my heart wasn't in it to commit myself. I switched to psychology and I am very satisfied. I plan to go to graduate school for my Psy.D in clinical psychology. Possibly an emphasis in neuropsychology. I don't know how promising job search is going to be but I don't feel like that is the responsibility of the school anyhow. The only thing I dislike about my major is that it falls under the College of Arts and Sciences and they require three semesters of a foreign language!

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Very Limited. I never received financial aid while in school..not just here but my previous community college as well. If you are a single white female then forget it. You either have your bright futures scholarship (which they are slowly trying to take away) or you take out loans (unless your parents are fortunate enough to pay for tuition)

2 College Senior

Parking: It SUCKS!! If you don't get to school before 9.. there is no parking left. I always have to leave for class an hour early especially at the beginning of each semester just to ensure a parking space! For the amount of students that attend FSU you would think they would have more student parking and less staff parking/construction.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Pretty Easy – My Financial aid process was very easy. There is an application on your student profile that helps you with everything. It's all very easy to keep track of.

2 College Freshman

Parking: A Mess – There looks like there would be a lot of parking on campus but with 40,000 students, these spots become sparse very quickly. It's worth it to just plan on parking on the outskirts and then plan on walking or riding the bus to your classes.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Fun Florida – Everyone at FSU just likes to have a good time. Most everyone likes to stay in shape and be active for fun.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties around FSU are Bipolar they could be good when you get there but then it turns our to be lame. Night life out here sucks there are only four clubs/bars and most of them are 21 and up . No bueno

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Nole Town – Tallahassee is a city located in Florida, the sunshine state. Not only is Tallahassee home for the state capital but it is also home for the University of Florida State.Florida State is one of the oldest universities in Florida and one of the top schools as well. Even though the campus is surrounded by beautiful gardens and environment, I feel that there should be more events and activities to do outside of school. The town really doesnt have much to do or explore.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I personally can't afford off-campus housing while I attend school. I currently live out of you car. I using the recreation center to showers and most eat out. It's a living and will be worth once I have my degree.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Student Center and Libraries – The Strozier library is open 24 hrs a day Monday thru Friday. It is also open over the weekend for about 8-10 hrs. The campus has a student life center which offers free movies, game night and socials. Love the social life at the campus.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The campus is close to the strip which has several clubs, there is also a bar practically on campus. Around Tallahassee there are a large variety of clubs and bars to go to.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: At FSU there does not seem to be any acceptance issues, the students are very diverse in ethnicity, sexual orientation, and political beliefs. There are constant political debates going on, allowing the college republicans and democrats to speak to hte rest of the student population as well as eachother. FSU incorporates many events that are centered on gay/lesbian/bi individuals so that those who are less comfortable with their sexuality can gain confidence. I have not seen any discrimination on any grounds since I began school.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: So Much to Do! With all the Florida State University has to offer it is difficult to find a dull moment. The gym is open most days until Midnight, the campus has an on campus club and bowling alley as well as many resturants. The library is extremely large and well organized with computer labs, a Starbucks, and group study areas.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is mostly good. There are a variety of places to live with many different options.

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.
