4 College Freshman

Local Area: Fantastic Weather, School Pride and Sense of Community – I think you would be hard pressed to find somebody in Tallahassee not sporting FSU gear! This is the very essence of a college town, everyone is friendly and helpful. The only reason I graded it an A- is because there are some seedy parts of town that you should try to avoid too late at night!

Parking: I Suggest Not Bringing Along a Car! Parking is a competitive sport on campus here at fsu, where people will stalk you as you you walk to your car just to snag your spot, and sometimes offer you a ride to your parking spot! It's really not that much walking from any on campus residence hall, plus it's good exercise!

Overall Experience: Best School in Florida – With all of the academic honor and prestige of UF without the snobby attitudes. The people at FSU are welcoming and kind (not to mention ranked as some of the best looking in the country), and the campus is extremely beautiful. You won't even feel like you're in Florida besides the sun. Rolling hills and beautiful brick buildings await you at the Florida State University, you'll feel at home within hours of arriving.

Off-Campus Dining: Super Perros Is Great, Convenient and Low Cost – Right down the street from campus located right near Degraff Hall and the union, Super Perros has greatly priced Colombian food including burgers, hot dogs and traditional Latin American cuisine. Everything is delicious!

4 College Senior

Weather: Nice Change – Tallahassee sees all the seasons, cold dry winters and hot humid summers

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Pretty Good – The union has a few good places such as Chili's, Tropical Smoothie, and Papa Johns. Then there are various food trucks with hot dogs or tacos. The food courts have typical cafeteria food but it can get a little pricey. The meal plans are pretty convenient, but you have to make sure you eat mostly on campus. This can be hard if you have friends always wanting to eat off campus.

4 College Senior

Local Area: A Lot to Do – In Tallahassee, there are a lot of different things to do. On a sunny day, you can visit The Rez and do some kayaking on the lake or spend it doing outdoor adventures. The beach is only an hour south. If you are very outgoing, there are plenty of bars and clubs to go to on any given night. There are also museums and the capitol building which is cool to go on tours.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Guys Are Hot – Florida State has a lot of different types of guys. There's the rednecks, northern boys, athletes, and of course the sexy southern guys. There's someone for everybody. This seminole city has a lot to offer.

Local Area: Fantastic College Experience – At Florida State University, you will not have a better time in college. There is so much to do, especially in the Fall when the Seminoles are in the heat of contention in college football. There is always something to do whether it is going to Governors Square Mall, downtown to a concert, or even just going out to eat at the very diverse locations all though Tallahassee. Everyone here is friendly and is always willing to give a helping hand, especially if you're wearing garnet and gold. If you're looking for a great place to come and make great memories of your times in college, make sure that FSU is at the top of your list.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Walking or Biking Are Your Main Options – The campus is quite large, but not to the point where it is nearly impossible to make it to class on time. It takes about 15 minutes to walk from one end to another, and the heat here can be unbearable but fighting for parking is not worth it. We do have a bus system and it can be an option for some, but they aren't always on time and sometimes you don't want to sit next to someone who is eating out of a tuna can.
Bringing a bike can be an option, just make sure you have a little bell on it so you don't knock others over or run into them as people can be clueless and stop in front of a biker.
I would once again like to stress that on-campus parking is a nightmare, but you still need a car to get around Tallahassee, because you don't want to constantly rely on the Renegade or Metro if you don't have to. All buses are free to students.

Academics: The academics at this university are good. The professors try to assist you if possible. Some grade more harshly than others, as with any other school or university. Just try your best and do not be afraid to speak to your professors. Take advantages of all of the assistances they provide to keep your grades high.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Sports Are Good – Sports are a huge part of the student life here. The only problem is the huge rivalry between University of Florida and FSU.

3 College Junior

Academics: Large Workload – There is so much to do with this major! The professors are very helpful but I feel that the workload is extremely high. You definitely need your own transportation for this major, especially if you live off campus. It is very difficult to work and have this major.

Campus Housing: Water , Old – The water that comes out of the faucets has way too much calcium. Also, the Freshman Housing and cheaper housing options are very depressing. Upperclassman dorms can be better, depending on which you choose.

Transportation: The shuttles are awesome! They take you everywhere you need to go on campus and places near campus. I almost never use my car.

1 College Senior

Parking: The Parking here is pretty terrible. The best lots which are far away from any classes still take for ever. I would have to get on campus 1.5 hours before my class to wait to get a parking spot. It takes for ever to find a spot. Word to the wise.........catch the bus!!!!!

Guys & Girls: They Are Generally Decent Looking – They usually appear dressed on campus in attire that make you want to look at them. For the most part they all have tans and long hair. I am talking about the girls. They come in all shapes and sizes tall, short, skinny, thick but they are generally attractive. They all love to party!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is a wide variety of housing options, and the differences between them are greatly noticible.

Majors: Great Advisors and Instructors – I'm a psychology major, and I always make use of the college advisors to make sure I'm on track to getting my degree on time. I've had some really great instructors who are always available to help you with course material, getting involved in research, and finding internships.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Spots Fill up Quickly – Parking on campus fills up quickly. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to find a parking spot so you can make it to class on time

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: ALL GREEK! It seemed every single person I bumped into was white and either in a sorority or fraternity. Most of the people at FSU are not my kind of people.

Scholarships: Fairly Easy – receiving financial aid was easy, and the office of financial aid was pretty helpful with that process. I suggest staying on top of your financial aid and payments.

Diversity: Plenty of Everything – My school definitely covers the spectrum in every aspect of diversity. All races, interests, political parties, religions, economic backgrounds, and sexual orientations are present and accepted.

Off-Campus Dining: Could Be Better – While I've often taken advantage of the off-campus dining options because of the convenience, price, and availability, the choices themselves are not stellar. Being a vegan (I do not eat any animal products), I've often struggled to find substantial meals around campus outside of my own kitchen. Also, while the food is decent quality, it would be good to have more options that are not just greasy fast food.

Drug Safety: It Depends Where Your Looking – Tallahasee has a fairly large centralized population that is made up of alot of college age people. With that said, it would be undeniable to say there inst a decent amount of drug abuse that goes on here at FSU. With that said if your not looking for drugs and hangout with responsible individuals, it is most likely that your safety will NOT be infringed upon for anything drug realted.

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.
