Health & Safety: I felt overall safe when I was on campus. Of course, I received a few emails about crime on campus but it was generally late at night or early morning when it was still dark and the person was alone with earbuds in. I have been out late at night myself but I walk with a purpose and don't go down any paths that are unlit. You have to be aware of your environment. The Night Nole is also a great option to use, especially if your class runs late at night and you have to walk back across campus. I always felt safe in my dorm, we would swipe our FSU card to get into the building and the staff would do nightly patrols in the halls to make sure everything was fine. There are also alert buttons across campus that if a student was ever in trouble, we can push and it connects directly with campus police.

I was a student at FSU when the Stozier library shooting happened, living in the dorms. When it occurred alarms went off in our building warning us to stay inside and lock our doors. After finding out what had happened at the library and how the campus police responded swiftly and made sure no one else was hurt. Campus police made us feel safe in the time of chaos and I knew that we had some of the best proceeders in place at Florida State to make sure that all students remain safe while studying.

Campus Housing: Best place to live is Traditions. It is apartment style dorm; it has a living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and bath. I lived there for 3 years and loved it. Since it was apartment style, students kept more to themselves.Traditions also housed upper level college students and grad students so it was one of the more quieter places to live on campus. If you want more of a community feel I would choose the suite style dorms especially if you are a Freshman. I lived in Reynolds and Bryan hall and I felt like I talked to more people there.

All the dorms host get to know your neighbors parties but most people just go for the free food rather than get to know other people.

Greek Life: Sororities are very tough to get into at Florida State especially if you don't look or act a certain way. Rush week is difficult for many girls, some girls are cut from the process mostly due to the fact that there are so many girls and not enough sororities to take them. After rush week which happens at the beginning of every Fall semester then a smaller one happens in the Spring, greek life is still there but it's not as big. Greeks are very active in intramural sports, Dance Marathon, and other big events on campus.

Sororities have houses near campus. Some fraternities are in houses and the rest are in Heritage Grove which is apartment building based on which frat you are in.

Overall Experience: Looking back at my experience at Florida State, I would not change it for the world. Florida State has so many wonderful components, which helped me grow. Florida State allowed me to become a confident, successful women and I look forward to what the future holds for me. I have met my best friends on Florida State campus and with them by my side I have had the most fun anyone could have at college. Tallahassee will always have my heart. "May I always bleed garnet and have a heart of gold!" Go Noles!!

Athletics: Florida State University athletics is a very active component on campus. Florida State has some of the best facilities for the athletes to play in. School spirit is at its peak during football season and everyone is decked out in garnet and gold. But, the spirit dose not fade when football goes away. Florida State athletes give back by helping with fund raisers and other events that take place on campus. Athletics isn't just about the game at Florida State it's about giving back to the community as well.

Overall Experience: I honestly really like all of the professors that I've had so far. All of them know their stuff, are willing to work with your schedule if you can't make it to office hours, and honestly are very easy to approach and talk to.

Overall Experience: I don't have too much experience with this yet but I've seen what my roommate goes through with her internships. It is a very long process but there are many facilities/services on campus to help. I really like the ideas of mock interviews because those seem to be helpful in preparing people for any types of interviews that they may have in the future.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I didn't get the worst dorm on campus but I still really dislike it. The amenities in Bryan Hall are pretty clean but my room is a closet in terms of space. It's very difficult to move around in there with my roommate. Also I never see my RA and people do not adhere to the rules about noise at all. Almost every night I'm calling down to the front desk to ask the RA on hand to get people to be quiet and it works for all of five minutes and the RA never follows up on it. Furthermore, when I brought these problems up to my floor RA she did nothing about it and so I'm very upset by that. I have many tests that I need to sleep for. I usually spend more time sleeping in my friend's dorm than I do mine.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't use them often but when I do I'm always impressed. There are many gyms on campus and there is something for everyone when you go and work out so long as you get over your fear of having to run on the treadmill next to someone.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would say I really do like it here. The people are nice and accommodating, the professors for the most part are willing to work with you and over all there is always someone who will help you if you go and put in the effort it takes to go and find help. I really liked getting involved with the student groups on campus and I love being able to participate in Korean Fan Dance. It's helped me meet a lot of people and go to a lot of amazing events.

Health & Safety: The wellness center really needs to loosen up with doctor's notes. I was incredibly ill and couldn't get a note even though I was throwing up and ad a fever.

Health & Safety: FSU is pretty safe overall. Of course there are instances of violence on every campus, but for the most part I don't feel scared walking around campus at any time.

Campus Housing: okay for the most part. the newer dorms are hard to get into and all of the dorms are pretty expensive when compared to off-campus housing

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.
