3 College Freshman

Diversity: OK Variety – At FSU you can see the major ethnicity is White. There is a large population of Hispanics and Blacks as well, then come Asians. Every now and then you will see middle eastern people.
There is a club/organization for anyone's sexual orientation, religious belief, or political beliefs. I think FSU does a good job accepting how students are.

4 College Junior

Administration: FSU PD doesnt mess around when it comes to protecting our students and campus. They are very well training and value their jobs!

Athletics: Football and Baseball Rule. Florida States Football team and baseball are the best!

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Guys Are Diverse – There are many types of guys on campus. A lot of them are involved in Greek life and they are typical meat heads. There are a lot of smart guys and rednecks as well.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: THERE ARE A PLETHORA OF GROUPS BUT THE PROCESS OF FINDING YOURS CAN BE DAUNTING AND OVERWHELMING. MY FAVORITE PART HAS BEEN JOINING CORAZON DANCERS, WE TEACH, PERFORM, AND DANCE SALSA. THE MINORITY POPULATION IS CLIQUEY AND SHOULD FOCUS ON SPREADING KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE LATIN/HISPANIC CULTURE TO NON-HISPANICS AND NOT JUST TO EACH OTHER AND NOT BE RUN BY MULTI-CULTURAL GREEK ORGANIZATIONS.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: EINSTEIN AND STARBUCKS ARE OVERPRICED. THERE ISN'T MUCH VARIETY. POLLO TROPICAL IS GREAT PRICE AND TASTE-WISE.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: The gym and libraires are new, welcoming, and comfortable. Activities are too Greek-life based. There should be more computers and microwaves for comuters.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The student aid process is very easy. Everything is done with simple applications online. It is a quick and smooth process.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeklife is huge on campus. Greek housing is available by all chapters to its members. Greek life is a big part of the college experience, i recommend at least trying it to everyone, but there is not hostility between greeks and non-greeks.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Tallahassee gives a true college experience. It is filled with students, and the atmosphere is amazing. There is always something fun to do.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Gaze Your Sight at the Capital – The restaurants are scattered throughout the city, and they're all phenomenal and amazingly cheap. There are different varieties to choose from and which ever you'll pick, I guarantee that you'll be satisfy. Visit the bars and clubs in midtown and downtown, lots of restaurants in a single fine line waiting to serve you. I recommend club mint, aj's sport bar, and the strozier.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Seminoles Are Very Welcoming – Although Florida State wasn't my first choice, I am glad I decided to go here. The students and staff are very friendly and welcoming. There is still time to party, but you have to keep studying and do well in classes. At Florida State, you are rewarded for hard work and perseverance.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: General Campus Aesthetics – We have a very beautiful campus with many different facilities for students' use. There are two gyms and numerous playing fields at Florida State, and everything on campus is free with a student ID. The student union is a centrally located place for students to hang out, and it is filled with places to eat, a club, a bowling alley, and other fun things to do.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Known for party life. Campus is awesome and beautiful. It has a lot of history.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everyone loves every sporting event and there is a lot of school spirit

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments/Old Houses – Very nice apartments to very cheap ones. Also a lot of old homes and on campus living

3 College Senior

Campus Food: I rarely used the dining halls on campus. They were not in a convenient location for me, plus I didn't have a meal plan and they were quite pricey without one. I would love to see a Subway on campus, but as of this year, there isn't one there.

4 College Freshman

Parking: Giving free parking permits to every student, student parking is definitely taken advantage of at FSU. There is a good amount of spots, but the easiest ones to find spots in are a little harder to locate for they are gravel lots behind areas of campus. There are a lot of places you cannot park, like teacher parking. I know from experience, DO NOT PARK IN THE RED LINES. Because you will get a 20$ parking ticket. From 7:30am-5pm on weekdays, stay inside the white lines of student parking, and you should be fine. And to the level of necessity of a car on campus, its not necessary for your friends will have one, and a lot of places are within walking distance.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Available, Not Overbearing – If you want to find drugs or alcohol, there's a good chance you will be able to find it if you make a few calls or ask a friend of a friend. Marijuana is the most common drug along with alcohol, of course. Other drugs are there, but it just depends on what scene you hang around with. But even with the easy access, FSU students are not known for peer pressuring and let others choose what they want to participate in.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Perfect College Town – With 3 colleges in a 5 mile radius, Tallahassee definitely lives up to its name as a great college town. A lot of the spots around town cater to students wants and needs and there's always something going on to suit anyone's interests. The nightlife scene never disappoints young coeds, being that FSU is recognized as a top party school. Let's just say I've never met someone whose been to Tallahassee and left disappointed.

5 College Freshman

Weather: When the sun comes out, it shines, but not in that sticky, humid way. It's more of a warm sun-kissed feeling that doesn't leave you feeling like you just ran a marathon. The cold is pretty chilly, but it's wonderful!

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There's Always Something to Do! Whether it be a house party or clubbing at The Strip or heading to downtown, there is always something going on every night of the week to keep you from those midnight blues.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have grown up wanting to go there, going to many football games, and it is just my dream school.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Libraries Help a Lot – The libraries on campus do a great deal to help with my school work. I don't have a printer in my apartment so I go to the library all the time. There are plenty of high speed computers to access and plenty of printers. The only time the library is crowded is during finals week.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Getting to Know My Professors – As an accounting major, there are tons of business and accounting type classes that I need to take. I've taken a good share of them and each one I have got to know each professor personally. Getting to know my professors on a personal level will benefit me in a number of ways. I will be able to relate to them if I have a problem because I am closer to them than the other students. Also, by getting to know them, I will have a better chance of learning from what they have done in their careers to help me out with my future endeavors.

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.
