4 College Junior

Party Scene: There are tons of stuff for students to do at night at FSU. We have tons of pubs and clubs here that usually let in 18+ a few 21+ locations as well. And if clubbing isn't really your scene like it isn't mine. I have greatly enjoyed the free movies offered at FSU's Student Life Center with our full size theater and well as nicely stocked gaming area.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Varsity sports are a big todo here at FSU. It is rare to not see a single tailgate or hear of a viewing party for the weekends game. It brings in tons of revenue to FSU and the local community too.

5 College Junior

Administration: I think it is great that the campus has its own police station on campus. It makes the students that work and live on campus feel safer. Also they respond quickly. Personally I like the enforcement because it makes students that maybe heading down the wrong path with drinking or drugs for example to get a chance to see what they are doing is wrong and hopefully rectify it! The police roam all day and respond to emergency calls and notifications from our safety polls which light many dark paths around campus.

5 College Junior

Transportation: The bus system is great for under grad and graduate students that live off-campus and need a safe reliable way to get to campus. Also our IDs work as a city bus pass where we can ride the starmetro city buses free of charge, which gives students many options for entertainment and living location even if they don't have a car.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I feel that I have a strong line up of teachers this year, even being a freshman. I have two classes with 500 students in them and my teachers still attempt to make the classes as interesting as they are able to. My smaller two classes are very engaging. I don't want to miss class because I enjoy what I am learning so much.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The varsity football team at Florida State is pretty huge. They are the highlighted team throughout campus. Saturdays are arranged around the team and the games. It isn't easy to always get tickets due to the high demand of support the team gets from all of its students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The weather at Florida State University is always outstanding even during the colder winter months. The only issue is during the rainy season when thunderstorms are prevalent. The campus is structured on a hill with a poor draining system so areas of the campus are prone to flash floods.

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Recently there have been increase in the number of bus routes throughout the day, but there have been an increasing number of options for students at night including the Night Nole bus and cab programs that allow groups to enjoy the nightlife.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a huge variety of off-campus dining places. There are so many different ones so close to campus too. Anything you want is probably in walking distance and many of the places stay open later than in other areas. Depending where you go, the price is okay. There are a few that have student discounts but not many. If you like pizza, a favorite place of many to go is Momos, it's a good place to go to with parents or friends.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Just like you would expect in Florida, it gets very sunny. Many students like to lay out on those sunny days or play sports outside. It starts getting colder around November and you'll definitely want a jacket in December and January. Other than that it does rain often so rain boots are a must, especially with the hills on campus! Although, sometimes it will rain for only 15 minutes and that's it for the day.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining halls offer something different on their menu everyday with quite a few things to choose from so most of the time you are likely to find something you like. Besides the dining halls there are several other food places, such as Subway, Einsteins, Papa Johns, Polo Tropical, and more. As you can see, there is a wide variety, so chances are you will be able to find whatever you're in the mood to eat. The places to eat are mostly crowded around lunch time but besides that, you can expect the line to move pretty fast.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have always felt pretty safe on FSU's campus, I know it is a big campus and things will happen, but I see the campus pd all around helping those who need it. Along with the blue light system they have setup to help you with whatever you need wherever you are I feel pretty safe.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There is a lot of diversity in the guys and girls at FSU. There are people from all walks of life and you become more open to other people cultures

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: There are so many things to do at FSU that is impossible to be bored. From work study to im sports FSU is a center for activity

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The school is situated in an economically unstable area. Lots of homeless people and dangerous people live within walking distance of the campus. There are robberies and killings almost every week.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: The campus looks great and there are almost unlimited things to do but the school is overcrowded and the faculty does not look out for students. Any school that purposely weeds out students needs some shaping up

5 College Senior

Academics: The creative writing program at Florida State University has impeccable critically acclaimed staff who possess a genuine concern for individual growth. I enjoy constantly being challenged through the rigorous and fruitful coursework, and have seen drastic improvements in my writing within the past year. I enjoy reading the works of professors like Erin Belieu, David Kirby, and James Kimbrell and am honored to study under such successful contemporary geniuses.

Majors: I am very happy with my program, Special Education. The college of Education is made of a very friendly and knowledgeable class, Dr. Funk is especially helpful. He is my adviser and he suggested classes that I enjoy and he will make sure that you do not overload your schedule.

3 College Senior

Parking: Parking lots are sparsely placed, though the transit system is fairly reliable. The perk though is that there is no charge for parking on campus with a FREE parking pass.

5 College Senior

Diversity: There is so much diversity on FSU's campus. All students appear to be accepted from what I can gather. There are many different campus organizations to join to meet people with similar backgrounds, also. It seems as though everyone is accepted for who they are.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love the College of Law. Any college that you are apart of really looks after you and make sure your needs, wants, thoughts, and questions are fulfilled. There is no reason for a student to not know what to do in their major because the campus has a open door policy and there is always someone to talk to.

3 College Junior

Local Area: The area i am located in is a college town where most people come just for school. However, it can get dangerous at times.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's too expensive for students trying to go to school and pay bills at the same time. Most students are barely working so that means they are not getting paid that much because they are focused on school.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: We have actual police on campus, not just campus safety. Our officers have the power of arrest. They take drug safety seriously and it's really comforting knowing that the chances of being around drugs aren't high. Alcohol is allowed in some dorms if you are of age. They are good about enforcing the standards, rules, and law here.

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.

The school is now turning its focus on research, which should appeal to those interested in science and mathematics.
