3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have the perspective of knowing individuals personally who are a part of Greek life and seeing a general population of those involved with Greek life on an everyday basis. I think the upside of Greek life is that it offers an opportunity to build a large network with past and present members of either a sorority or fraternity. However, I think Greek life also establishes boundaries between those involved and those not involved. Granted Florida State University has a student population of approximately 40,000, Greek life creates an incredibly cliquey atmosphere. Then again, this is a generalization of Greek life and not all sororities or fraternities are self-inclusive.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I spent the three and a half years of my undergraduate career at Florida State University before being accepted into the Master of Fine Arts program for Screenwriting. There's not much I would change about my experience, except maybe my involvement with more student related activities and community service. My favorite experiences include witnessing firsthand the National Championship in 2013, late nights eating free pancakes outside the student cinema, and watching a multitude of bands under the hot spotlight at the campus venue, Club Downunder. Florida State University also provided me the opportunity to meet my best friends and explore the creative endeavors I had always been interested in: being in a band and acting in movies. I couldn't have asked for better professors, a better setting, or a better education.

Athletics: The athletics, possibly more than any other division of campus life, brings all the students together. On Saturday afternoons or evenings in the Fall, nearly the entire student population unites inside of the football stadium and the unanimous cheers remind me of a choir on Sunday mornings.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The college of music is an amazing place.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I'm going to one of the top music schools.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I usually feel safe on campus. Always just walk with a group. If I am out late and don't feel comftorable it always helps to call the safe bus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the professors care about their students. But not all can be great, so you just kinda have to push through those classes. It is kinda hard to get an A in most class so lots of studying

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is an excellent place, they will really help find a job and with the interview process. They really helped me get my resume looking more professional

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's not horrible living on campus. Any place you live is close to all the building so thats very convenient.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not involved in Greek Life but they don't really cause any problems and its not a weird thing if you're not in one.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports its basically the best part. Fall semester revolves around football Saturday. But there are sports for everyone of every level. The IM sports really involve everyone, despite if they have played before or not.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school. The atmosphere is amazing, the teachers are helpful, and everyone is generally really nice

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I mostly feel safe on campus, but there will always be situations that no one can predict or account for.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being both a music therapy and a psychology major, I have had a very diverse experience in the classroom setting. IN music classrooms, the setting is much more interactive and engaging, whereas psychology lectures can be interesting, yet dull at times. Overall, the quality is great and I am sure that I am getting the best education that I can get here at Florida State.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus was one of the best decisions that I made when coming to FSU. I was close to everything and I felt like I didn't miss out on anything while living on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: FSU has the best school spirit in the entire country, whether it be for football, basketball, or intramural sports. Being a member of the Marching Chiefs, I have well been exposed to this fact and help to contribute to the Unconquered Spirit of my university.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite part about FSU is all of the wonderful opportunities I have had for such unique experiences. I am a member of the Marching Chiefs, so I have had the privilege of being able to support my football team all around the country.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've heard some stories of the school not dealing with sexual assaults in a healthy way, but I know that FSU is trying to make an effort to educate the public about the problems of sexual assault.

Overall Experience: Most of the professors and TA's that I've had are passionate about what they teach and willing to help you reach success in the class.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Career Center and Exploratory Program (and other organizations probably) are very helpful in helping you pick a career and major with panels, workshops, meeting career ambassadors, and catering towards you. You can also get help with interviews and resumes.

Greek Life: The Greek life is great for the people who want to join, but everyone else kind of sees them as less intelligent and big partiers.

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.
