4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school was easy to get around, the cost of living was reasonable, and FSU football

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love Florida State, the economy is what made it hard to find a job. High student loans also a downside.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Crime happens everywhere, especially since FSU is a public campus, but the FSUPD responds very quickly and is always on the scene. I always feel safe walking around campus during the day, but its always good to have someone with you at night.

Campus Housing: I only lived in the dorms my freshman year, and I really enjoyed it. Two of my 3 roommates were random, and it worked out really well. The RA's are very helpful and it was a great college experience. However, this could all be different depending on where you live and who your roommates are.

Overall Experience: I've heard it's great. I haven't taken the initiative myself

4 College Junior

Academics: Registration periods are fair because you are able to register for classes with class priority. The workload, as with most universities, is a lot, but its to be expected. I love studying in the union, at Strozier, Dirac, and my sorority house.

Health & Safety: We have stations on campus, known as the blue lights, where students are able to push emergency buttons and a FSU PD will come to the location. We also have an app and alerts from FSU Alerts that notifies us when there is an emergency situation on campus.

Campus Housing: I lived in a horrible dorm. Cockroaches, floods, and mold. Some are great, I got the worst

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I started my second major, Communications, fall semester 2015 and I absolutely loved the professors I had. They were all very full of life and seemed to really love what they do. I learned an abundant amount of information because of the high quality of the courses. My class sizes were around 20-30 in each class which is perfect for me.

Overall Experience: The career center is a very valuable resource. They helped me get an internship for a FL legislature, and gave me multiple personality tests to help me excel in regards to my strengths. We also have many on campus jobs available to students.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It's a huge part of campus life

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's what FSU is about.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I personally don't like how big the university is.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: FSU is an expanding university, and fortunately we are in the process of building new residence halls and replacing the outdated ones. The RA’s and Hall Government members are always planning events for students to meet each other and take a fun break from studying. The residence halls all have study rooms and have the option of renting out cleaning supplies. The community style dorms would be the worst option, but even then they aren’t that bad.

Greek Life: Most service organizations, campus political parties, and honor societies are led by the students in Greek life. Our Greek life promotes leadership and service, and our campus definitely takes pride in that. We have on campus housing for most Greek chapters. Non-Greeks may have the perception of Greeks being snobby, rich, party animals, etc. however, they often disregard these stereotypes when conversing with Greek students.

5 College Junior

Athletics: FSU Football is a huge part of the culture of our campus. The Fall Semester weekends revolve around our football team. Our student body takes pride in our sport programs. The football, and volleyball stadiums are always full for home games. Students and alum are always sporting our logo and colors during games.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Florida State University has been an incredible experience thus far. I am in a leadership position with Dance Marathon at FSU and it is very unique, eye opening, and rewarding experience that has taught me so much about myself and the importance of community service. Academically, my professors are extremely passionate and knowledgeable about their subjects. I trust and understand the knowledge that is being given to me. I wouldn’t choose another university if I were given the chance to.

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.
