5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: No Compaints! i love my campus and fsu definitely goes the whole 9 yards to make sure everything looks spic and spam inside AND out. landscaping is constantly maintained and buildings, whether new or old, are always ready to impress any visitors or guests. its very reassuring for when friends and family visit to not be worried they will get a bad impression of your school.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Fairly Safe – Constant flow of emails denoting various cases of assault and muggings

1 College Freshman

Parking: It is very difficult to find parking during the week. One the weekends it gets a little easier but a lot of parking lots are far away from most of the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Technology: Computer Labs – Florida State has a lot of computer labs to go to.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Pretty Strict – Parties will always go on, but it's best to be discreet about it. Campus security does take safety seriously.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: If you need access to a computer, Florida State has probably got you covered. The library offers several computers and you can usually find a free one, unless it's the day before a big exam day like finals.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's All Right – Tallahassee is the state capital, so it's nice to be able to say that you go to school in such an important place. The neighborhood surrounding Florida State isn't of the highest quality, and there tends to be more to do on campus rather than off. As far as excitement goes, the city of Tallahassee doesn't have all that much to offer.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is a lot of alcohol on any college campus. However, FSU might take the cake. The positive is since all the nightlife events are nearby you don't need to drive and you can walk. There are lots of alcohol and it is pretty enforced. DO NOT go to Bullwinkles with a fake you WILL get it taken away or worse.

Technology: Overall, we have a great amount of computers and if you ever need a place to print something is easy to find without a problem. The ONLY problem with this category is that there is no wireless throughout the campus. They have been trying to find a way to get the wireless signal to get through the brick walls, so hopefully soon enough we will have wireless.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are a decent amount of robberies that happen around campus or even on campus late at night. Some armed robberies and at times there are cases of people getting drugged. It's not the worst safety I have seen at universities but it is still pretty sketch at times. The positive is they have these safety poles around campus that if you press the button it will call FSU PD and they will come.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus can be really bad. Especially around 12 pm and afternoon. Although it is beneficial to have some sort of transportation (from car, to motorcycle, to a bike) to get around town, you don't need one for on campus

3 College Sophomore

Administration: A Night Out Never Hurts – The police force can be strict, but they won't harrass you for being noisy and intoxicated. They're more concerned about drivers under the influence and fights that break out.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The college is extremely diverse. However, I would say that most of the students come from upper-middle class families and are well off. Most are typically dressed nicely and care about their education. There is a very large population that is involved in the greek system. FSU is also known for their outstanding arts programs so there are also alot of students that are creative. There is a very good balance of races and backgrounds. You come across all sorts of different people daily, and there is always some sort of student orginazation holding events.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The campus is set on hills in Tallahassee. The entire campus is made up of brick buildings, some older and historical and some new, but all of the best quality. We have all necessary resources and top of the line facilities there for our use. The grounds are kept nicely and there is a huge sense of student involvement. It is a school of tradition and unity.

5 College Freshman

Academics: As a dance major, we are challenged daily to increase technique, knowledge of our craft and the necessary skills to ensure that is carried on. The faculty members come from impressive backgrounds of experience and education and really care about the progress of each student.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs Are Popular – Drugs and alcohol are definitely visible at FSU but FSUPD does do a great job at enforcing policies and stopping illegal activity. FSU has a well-know reputation for being a party school so some things you cannot change completely when it comes to drugs and alcohol. But FSUPD does it part in restricting illicit activity from becoming a major issue on campus.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks Are Highly Involved – The Greek life on campus is ubiquitous. Greek at Florida State University seem to have a great balance social life and school work. Greeks play a significant role in student government association and major events on campus however you do not have to be Greek to enjoy the luxuries of our campus.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Union Is Great – There are many opportunities through the student union that allow them to get involved on campus. Events such as Market Wednesday where Registered Student Organizations table in the Union help you notice the easy opportunity you have to get involved.

2 College Junior

Parking: You can bike/walk anywhere on campus in 30 minutes or less. There are parking lots all over the place, but there are also city buses and sidewalks everywhere. Cars can become a hassle on campus.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Buses Are for Cool People – We have transportation all around campus because it is so huge.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Florida State University is open to all types of people

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Dorms are the best and everyone gets along pretty well

5 College Junior

Party Scene: I Hate College but Love All the Parties – Nightlife at FSU is as good as it gets. With so many bars and clubs in Tallahassee, there is never a dull night. It's easy to get in most places especially if you have a fake. There are ways to get around including the Safe Bus, NightNole, and cabs.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Mixed Feelings About Dorm Life – Dorms in Florida State University are very convenient for you can walk anywhere on campus and not have to worry about parking. Some of the best dorms include Degraff, Wildwood, and Gilchrist. Some of the worst dorms include Sally, Kellum, and Dorman. For the most part, it is an experience you should go through as a freshman.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Party College Town – Florida State University is located in Tallahassee, FL which is more of a college town than the capital. There are many clubs/bars which is where most of the students spend their time when they are not studying or in class. The social culture revolves around partying and getting involved with the FSU team sports.
