4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Fun Activities and Library Availability – FSU has plenty of activities on campus almost every week that are fun and sometimes entail free food. During Homecoming Week, there was a tilt-a-whirl, other games and free pizza, chicken wings, and cotton candy. There's even a place where students can watch movies in an actual movie theater and play video games. Also, the library is open 24 hours a day/5 days a week, so it's always available during the school week even at late hours.

Health & Safety: It's Safe to Me – I haven't encountered a problem personally at FSU. When there is a crime that has been committed, the FSU on-campus security makes sure to have e-mails sent out to students about what happened and tips on how to keep ourselves safe from harm. I feel that's smart of them to do and I'm glad they're looking out for us.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Not Very Diverse – TO be honest, at Florida State, you don't see many non-white students. Often, there are many Florida A&M students on campus so there will be some black students. There is some diversity, and the school doesn't seem to suffer from the mainly white student body

3 College Junior

Majors: No Experience With It – I have no experience with it. However, I have many business major friends who are very happy with the opportunities FSU gives them for internships. You can frequently find school sponsored Internship Fairs.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Good Amount of Everything – Plenty of clubs are available for students of all ages. There are a few very nice 21+ clubs, as well as 18+ clubs. Many clubs and bars are known for their daily specials. The campus provides a late night bus transportation, however it stops at 2 am. A longer bus system would be much better.

3 College Junior

Technology: Is Decent – Wireless is available all over campus, however many building still don't have the wifi, mostly the older buildings. Computer labs are generally opening, and if you live on campus, you do have free printing available.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Though the process is difficult the financial aid office made it as easy as possible.

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Fashion Disasters – No on in Tallahassee has any fashion sense at all. You can buy nice clothes here without spending a fortune.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live in The Park At Forest Ridge about 5 miles from the school. It is older but very nice and affordable. Some of the houseing closer to the school is better but much more expensive. I lived on campus in a dorm in the summer and apartment living is much better.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: FSU football, along with all of FSU's other athletic programs, is amongst the best in the nation. It provides a sense of unity amongst students and Coach Jimbo Fisher is a role model and wonderful coach.

4 College Junior

Majors: The most difficulties I had starting out was trying to know if I fitted in computer criminology my first time as transfer student. I had hard time adjusting to the course load. I ended up changing my major just to criminology because the work load wasn't so bad I was able to adjust as much I could.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Florida state University is very big campus. It takes up most of the town in Tallhassee. We have huge stadium and everyone and anyone goes to the game. About 80 thousand can be in the stadium. And The football games are recorded on TV.Our school is old because of the way the classroom buildings are built; which, is with brick. Not everyone drives their car to campus most people walk.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Florida state University has been wonderfull. I love walking to class and getting some exercise. when I walk I enjoy viewing the animals that play and scatter, such as the Squirrels.I love seeing other people enjoying Landis green by studying on the field, playing frisbee, or football. on campus The Scenery is great, I get to walk by old buildings. people and teachers are very nice and helpful. I enjoy getting up and going to campus. I like that I can choose the how may class I would like to take each semester.

3 College Junior

Weather: Sunshine State – mostly sunny, little rain, in the winter it gets a little windy and cold

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A Little Bit of Everything – Everything is great here. Great social life, really good and understanding teachers. This is my first choice, if I had to choose something again I would choose FSU again. Great opportunities. If you're into research, if you love parties, if you love a good workout, if you're politically involved, if you are an addict gamer. There's something for everyone.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's cheap, plentiful and very good for the price.. You can be full under 10 bucks for sure, even 5 in some cases.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They're Doing Everything They Can – FSU has its own Police, and they're very friendly and helpful. Security levels might be alarming but nothing happens to the cautious people who don't go wandering around off campus in the middle of the night. If you have to do it with a car or be good at jogging.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Only Bring a Car If Necessary – On campus, it's best to show up 30 minutes early to find parking. During morning through mid-afternoon, it can be extremely difficult to find parking, much less convenient parking. However, around 3 or 4 the campus clears up a bit. Having a car on campus isn't really necessary, because everything is within about a 10-15 minute walk at most. Parking passes are free for students, but if you don't have one, campus police are very strict about giving lots of tickets.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Average Mix – There are a fair mix of black and white people on campus, but FSU has a reputation of being the "white" school while our neighbor FAMU is the "black" school. However, there are a ton of clubs, activities, etc. for every political, religious, racial, and sexual affiliation.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: An Array of Activities – Tallahassee has something for everyone. FSU, TCC, and FAMU are all major colleges in town. We also have the capital, and a lot of Florida historical things. Tallahassee has a great art scene as well as tons of great places to eat. Surrounded by lots of natural parks, springs, and hiking trails, there is something to do for everyone- inside or out.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Good Place to Learn About New Cultures – Depending on how comfortable you are at reaching out to other people, Florida State University brings in a lot of people from other nations and states, so that you don't just encounter the same culturally entrenched people day after day. On any given day on campus, you can hear discussions being conducted in foreign languages.

5 College Junior

Academics: Big University, but a Great Place to Learn – I'm a graduate student at Florida State University, and although the university is huge, the sheer size presents a unique opportunity for advancement of any educational pursuits you wish to pursue on campus. I've been to smaller schools, and their lack of resources was always frustrating, but here at FSU I can almost always find what I need.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Creative Writing – The English department at FSU is very strong, offering a small range of high quality teachers. I very much enjoy my major related classes and can recognize growth as a writer. The workload is adequate, curriculum is challenging, and the facilities are good. There a re a number of local internship opportunities as well. The only contention I do have is with the department's focus on literary writing, which I feel is stunting to practical job applicability.

2 College Freshman

Technology: Limited Numbers – The computer on campus are good, they have ones with editing software and scanners available. There is however an almost constant shortage of computers for the students who come in needing them only to quickly print something. In addition the printing is expensive with no free page allotment, and all printers in just a few of the libraries. The internet is swift, though log on can take time every so often. I would suggest a personal computer and printer. Unfortunately, there are no fax machines available for use, which is disappointing.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Students Are Safe – The general level of crime caused by students at the university is low, most crimes are committed by non-students who come on campus. Since I have been here there have been many muggings at night by assailants that are never caught; some have been at gun-point. However the students here are generally safe enough to bet on, I've seen wallets left, bags left, and other belongings all either left alone or turned into administrators.

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.
