Technology: i really do like the computers at FSU. The are quick and reliable. I have been known to take advantage of the computers to do homework and catch up on some readying. The best thing is that there are so many of them that you can always find a spare computer if you need one.

Overall Experience: aside from the parking and long walks, i love my university. Classes, sports, greek life, everything.

Parking: It Sucks – you have to drive around millions of times before you find any parking, even then it's very far from where you need to be

Guys & Girls: Community College – Many different people attend school here. You would see the same people in the grocery store or anywhere else.

Diversity: Community College – Many different people attend school here for a variety of reasons.

Weather: EXPERIENCE IT ALL – I like Tallahassee weather because you get to experience a hot summer AND a cold winter. Every summer when I return to Tallahassee I forget how hot it is, but as October gets closer, it starts becoming cooler and cooler.
I really enjoy bundling up in the Winter time in Tallahassee. Although it doesn't snow, I feel that I am experiencing a chilly winter.
It tends to rain a lot in Tallahassee even in the middle of a sunny day. The rain gets a little annoying in the middle of the year because the campus tends to flood a lot in certain areas. Rain boots are a must if you are going to attend Florida State or any college in Tallahassee. Sometimes it is extremely hard to get to your classes on time because of severe thunderstorms. Sometimes classes aren't canceled during these times, which is a bit frustrating.

Athletics: I am not a student athlete so I personally don't really know how the school facilitates the athletes. In terms of school sports and support from students, I feel that it is very enthusiastic.
I am currently playing an intramural sport (flag football) I feel as thou IM sports are becoming more popular, maybe because I've become more involved. Many fraternities and sororities, apartment complexes, and groups of friends are involved in IM sports. They allow students to play a sport that they love, feel part of a team, and support one another.

Local Area: Tallahassee is a very unique city, mostly catered to college students. There are many fun activities for students to participate in and become involved in the community. There is a homeless shelter right across the street from campus, although many students and parents are uneasy about it, I feel that it allows students to have opportunities to help the local community bu volunteering there.
Sports, especially Football is very popular in Tallahassee. Parents, alumni, and current students come from all around to come watch the Florida State games.
Because Tallahassee has 3 colleges in close proximity, there is a large amount of college students. I feel that the local attitudes toward students is a positive one.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Great Experience – Being in tallahassee is a great experience, not a great place to settle down

3 College Senior

Weather: Not Bad – The weather is usually pretty stable, just really hot. Because of the hills, when it does rain the city flood quickly. The drainage system is very quick in drying up the roads, once the rain slows.

5 College Senior

Transportation: Very Effective – Have the campus buses that run every 15 mins, the city buses are free for FSU students with a college id

2 College Senior

Administration: Not to Strict – not very strict in my opinion, not strict at all actually

3 College Senior

Academics: Challenging but Rewarding – The coursework is challenging but the internship opportunities are amazing.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have gone to several different schools for visits, and Florida State had by far the best dining options. There are two dining halls located on campus, which offer a very wide variety of foods, all fresh and delicious. Being a vegetarian I thought it would be very hard to find food that I would be able to eat, but not at FSU! There are specific counters in each dining hall that offer vegetarian and vegan food, which I found absolutley amazing, they sold me at that! The food is always delicious and is never greasy or overly fried, I eat there twice a day, and I love it!

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I Love It – Joining the greek life at my school was the best decision I made. I joined as a sophomore and can definetely say it has made me appreciate my school way more. Whenever the school is hosting an event of any sort the first organization they turn to is Greek life. Therefore, you know everything that is going on in school and have a foot in the door in basically anything you want to join. I love it!

5 College Junior

Local Area: Perfect College Town – Although Tallahassee is the capital, so there is a lot going on. It is also the perfect college town. The spirit of the city is undeniable when it comes to supporting the school-- whether it be in community service, sporting events, or academics. It is also such a great college experience to be in a town where the majority of the people you are around are also students or somehow related to the school.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Too Many Cops – Apparently there are mor police per capita in Tallahassee, Fl than any other city in Florida. This includes cities like Miami and Orlando. That fact alone leads to high arrest rates for drunk drivers and just drunk people in general. If you go to a bar here make sure you don't drive even if you only had 1 beer.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Leech Center – One of the best gyms I have ever been too. Top of the line athletic equipment, full track, and hot tubs.

4 College Junior

Technology: Strozier Library – The computers at the main campus library are top of the line. As for the rest of campus, well some computers are pretty trash. Saw some 386s the other day.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Greasy Greeks – there are a lot of frat guys and sorority girls. it's not all bad, but seeing girls painted orange and guys with crooked hats gets old pretty quick.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't bad, but they are extremely expensive, costing more than a lot of the apartments around campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Proximity Is Good, Parking Is Terrible – There are plenty of decent apartments/houses around the campus, but the parking can be a nightmare. Some places charge up to $100 for a parking decal and the tow companies are like vultures. Besides all that, off-campus housing is pretty nice.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Beautiful Campus With Excelent Academics – Florida State University has one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen. Even after a little more than a year, i still am amazed by the scenery walking to class. The school spirit is alive and well, especially during game days. Even with this the academics are extremely good. All of my Prof's really seem to enjoy what they are doing and really want the students to learn the material rather than just make the grade.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity at Florida State is pretty apparent. Over half of the student body is female with races ranging from all corners of the world. There is also a great feeling of acceptance in clubs, organizations and societies.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Students receive text alerts to the cell phones when there is an incident that could affect the students. Campus police are visible all around campus as well as emergency poles placed very conveniently. and the campus is well lit at night.

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.
