5 College Sophomore

Academics: Great Opportunities – There are tons of experiments to take part in, whether you run the experiment or are the experimentee. There's a lot of study abroad and research opportunities as well.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If you are a person, you are in a frat or sorty. Wow, I can't even imagine someone not doing this. What is this I don't even! Everyone is drinking and getting their sexual energy on all the time. Wow.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safe Safe Safe Safe Safe – Safe safe safe. What more can I say? There have only been a few rapes, muggings, shootings, and car jackings on and around campus. Its so perfect here. Its like Dulac from that movie, you know the one, Shrek.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Everything is wonderful. I love everything. Everyone is so helpful, too! Everybody wants to see you succeed. Everything is within ones reach, one must only apply themselves. Everything is really great here - everything and everyone.

Local Area: Tallahassee Time – Tallahassee is a small town but with lots to do. Its neighboring schools are Florida AM university and Tallahassee Community College. The students interact with each other through parties that often happen all the time.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Help at Your Doorstep – I just finished my freshman year this past spring and I am so pleased with how it went. I went into college not knowing what I wanted my career to be and was open to all sorts of possibilities. FSU offers so many different majors and you can find help anywhere you look. I started in the Exploratory major and tried a variety of classes ranging from Pre-Med all the way to Broadcast Journalism. My advisor was always there to help and offer assistance in any way that I needed. He always responded to my emails, phone calls, or walk-in appointments. Florida State's Career Center is by far one of the most helpful places on campus. Esteemed faculty work one-on-one with students helping them find internships, job interviews, and even help with your resume. The faculty were tremendous and the advice was exactly what I needed to help me declare my double major in Professional Sales and Marketing.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Many Different Cultures – Florida State University offers a wide range of clubs, organizations, greek life, intended majors, etc. I have participated in many different things on campus and I must say that you will meet people ranging from various sexual orientations to religious beliefs all the way to the color of an individual's skin. Yet among all these differences, I have never had a bad experience with another culture or diverse group. I have gotten the chance to meet so many different amazing people that I otherwise would have never met if I hadn't attended Florida State University.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Just Like Any Other Process – The process of getting financial aid is pretty generic no matter what school yo attend. There's always gonna be a wait time, there's always gonna be a line but for the most part whatever you need done will get done.

5 College Junior

Transportation: The campus routes are extremely helpful. All routes usually take you directly where you need to go. Whether it's to your off campus housing or to the other side of campus. The fact that it's free makes it even better you never have to worry about having the right amount of quarters

5 College Junior

Academics: There are an unlimited amount of programs, study abroad opportunities, and classes that a student can take. If you can imagine it chances are there's a class you can take for it

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Biological Sciences – The professors in the biological science major are so smart! Each professor knows what he or she is teaching and they teach their subjects well. There are always at least two TAs in the chem help room at all hours of the day, and there is an entire library at FSU dedicated to sciences. Any time I need help with studying for an exam or a lab experiment I chck out the library for extra help. Campus is so beautiful all year round and there are always opportunities to meet new and exciting people in the same major as me. Almost every day I receive new emails on my FSU account about new job/internship openings, and with the help of the academic advisors they plan out a schedule that helps me have the chance to work and to study.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Great College Life – FSU really has a great atmosphere, good classes, and overall it has been a great experience for me and I would do it all over again

2 College Senior

Academics: Unsatisfactory registration process and blackboard site

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Not Like the Real World – FSUPD really doesn't take underage drinking seriously. They are more concerned with marijuana than alcohol. I have seen a girl come home from a party alone that could barely walk straight and was throwing up everywhere. You know what PD did when they were called? Escorted her to her room.

1 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Same Old People – If guys are usually a big distraction to you, FSU is the place to be. I am in my second year, and still have not found any cute or interesting guys. Most of the ones I meet are athletes, and very full of themselves. Everyone else is nerdy and dorky.
As for the girls, they are mostly rich snobs. They seem nice at first, but they don't take long to show their true colors.

Academics: Not Really All That – I actually thought the nursing program at FSU was excellent, but I recently found out it really isn't all that people make it out to be. I went to the hospital, and the doctor jokingly told me they didnt really like to hire students from FSU. I went home and googled around a bit and found that compared to other schools in the area, FSU nursing program did a lot less "hands on" stuff. We read and learn a lot, but we really don't get much practice doing it.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Recently, I found out the hard way that taxis in Tallahassee are EXPENSIVE! Instead of spending 6 or more dollars on just a trip down the street take the Night Nole. It's free, comes at all times during the night, and not to mention memories will come from just a simple ride on that bus!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Stay Close! Finding an apartment close to Florida State University is easy. Even though the prices may be a little more expensive than what you would pay if you lived farther, I think it's worth it. Many pros about living closer to campus is the easiness of just being able to walk to class, the bus routes all go along major apartments next to the campus, and you can also have the freedom of living off campus without having to feel seperated from the university.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Always Willing to Help – Coming into Florida State University, I felt like choosing a major would be difficult and I would struggle with many classes but when I met with an academic advisor, they made all that stress and doubtfulness go away. They were able to answer questions, recommend the best classes towards majors I was interested, and even taught me time management skills. I now know whenever I have a problem, I can always could on my academic advisor to lend me a helping hand.

2 College Junior

Weather: We live in Florida. When it's hot, it's HOT! When it rains, it gets muggy and the mosquitoes come out. There are a lot of hills so flooding and/or large puddles can occur. We do have a weather/emergency alert system but teachers make it very clear that even where there are extreme weather conditions (the severe ones that alerts that are sent out via text message) this does not provide as an excuse for tardiness or absentees.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Although this school is older many of the facilities that I have used so far, such as the Leech gym, library and union have, for the most part, been updated and are enjoyable when accessing.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Policy Enforcement – So there's a zero drug policy on campus so don't abuse that or you'll be suspended or even kicked out of school.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: All of FSU has great wireless service. There's also a couple places where you can go and hang out or watch tv if you don't have cable in your room.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: Lots of Options – There's a 24/hour Denny's and Starbucks. Also, there's a Chilies on campus and like 7 Einsteins, plus a food court with papa johns, stuff like that etc.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The Same as High School – Florida State is just like high school when it comes to relationships between girls and guys. It's very easy to make friends with anyone on campus if you take a minute out of your time to talk to them. It depends on the people you like. The fashion fiends like the fashion fiends. The jocks like the jocks. Geeks like me can make friends with other geeks. But we all get along no matter what our interests are.
