3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Not only is my school beautiful but it has a good atmosphere. There's lots to do on and off campus. Most things are concentrated in one area. There are many good organizations to get involved in and fun classes as well. It is not very diverse as far as ethnicity but there are lots of different kinds of people. There are may opportunities available as well. Though it is mainly a football school I would say there is a balance between sports, academics, and arts. I also love the size of the school.

2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Boys and Girls – I'm disappointed by the fact that there are way more girls than guys at my school. You don't see much PDA on campus which is great. The girls for the most part do not dress modestly and a lot of the guys dress sloppy, but most are involved in a aport of some time. Lots of girls are in sororities and like to party.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Tallahasse has great weather but sometimes it's very rainy. But fsu is good with buses for transportation in all weather.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life wasn't for me. It's sometimes hard to be apart of on campus events if you're not in Greek life.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining shows a big variety and is relatively close to the campus. The cost of off campus dining can sometimes be expensives though. But all in all off campus dining is good.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Inside Scoop – The major I chose is one of the best in the country of it's kind. It bosts a 99% placement rate for students in jobs of their choice upon graduation. In this economy, a 99% chance of having a good job after college is extremely valuable.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: FSU was my first and only choice for college, and has been for my entire life. I love it here. I've met so many amazing people, the campus is beautiful, the professors are excited to be teaching, and there's always something going on.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in a suite style dorm, which means I share a room with one other person, and a study area and bathroom with three "suitemates." Other dorms are community style, which means bathrooms are located in the hallways of each floor instead of in individual rooms, and apartment style. Living on campus may be a little annoying if you don't like roommates but it's SO convenient. I never have to take the bus to class unless the weather is bad, and there is a dining hall right outside my dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Everyone in my program has to have an internship block, and the program is great at placing student in companies that they are interested in working for. Also, local merchants are often willing to hire interns for a semester or two.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is a bus system that goes not only all over campus, but also to the major apartment complexes around town. If you live on campus there's really no reason to take the bus, however. And there's always the NightNole, the bus system that runs after hours, and NoleCabs for any student who can show ID. It's pretty easy to get around campus at any given time.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is never lacking at FSU. Going to football games is almost mandatory, and everyone knows the student section has the most fun of any fans. Other sports get a lot of attention as well, but the main focus is on football.

1 College Freshman

Parking: If you want parking, get there early. There are not nearly enough spots for everyone.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Party School! Tallahassee is definitely a college town. It is full of clubs and bars.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Average – There are a lot of apartments close to campus and they are cheaper than living in the dorms. Still some places are too far away to walk to campus.

2 College Freshman

Weather: In the summer it is extremely hot! In the winter,its extremely cold! through out the year,it rains randomly. Sometimes the weather is nice, but its unpredictable so i advise that you watch the weather channel before you step outside.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety Is Average – Florida State University is an open campus, so strangers can come on campus,but its rare. it is a safe school, police patrol the campus, RA checks the dorms,and there are school buses and vans you can take at night.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You Don't Always Get What You Pay for – The off campus housing facilities take advantage of college students who are unfamiliar with the renting process.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm Life – I lived in the honors dorm, Landis, it was extremely convenient and was comfortable. Roommate matching is also good.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: There are multiple libraries with computers available almost always

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Great Community, Close to Class – Although some of the buildings are not the prettiest on the inside, Florida State's Housing Department makes up for that in the quality of staff they hire as RA's, and the community they develop in those halls. If you are in Honors, definitely apply for Landis, and don't be afraid to try out some of he living learning communities.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Football at FSU is an amazing thing. The amount of school spirt from the students and faculty is truly an amazing thing to see.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The Way Students Look. Theres a variety of students attending Florida State. Theres no particular look for males or females, everyone is included and everyone is different. The men are interested in intramural sports and some are very interested in going out to bars and clubs. The guys are all pretty hot and have a little bit of the southern charm. The girls are interested in all sorts of things including, greek life, going out, and shopping. As people say, FSU is where all the pretty girls go.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The libraries on campus are great, they are clean and well kept. Theres always something to do on campus with their wide range of activities. Theres intramural sports for everyone and being involved in greek life always keeps you busy. While walking to class everyday I think about how lucky I am to attend such a beautiful university. Florida State's campus is beyond gorgeous and its well kept. Some people even think theres a strong resemblance between the campus and Harry Potter's Hogwarts

4 College Freshman

Weather: I Am Just a Freshman. I just started school at FSU and I am from Miami, Florida. I haven't really experienced a winter but the colder temperatures do make it harder to walk to class. Aside from the winter and perhaps an occasional rain storm, the weather is nice and most people walk and enjoy the outdoors.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Lots of Options! Public transportation is great during the day at Florida State. If students are not packed on to the buses, they are walking, on a scooter/moped, driving, or bicycling. Regarding the night, besides taxi cabs, there are a couple safe ride services that will come and get you if you call them. Our school also has a program that cabs only cost $4 with a FSU ID on your way home from any bar or club any night of the week.

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.
