5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Florida state is amazing and I'm so glad that i'm going here! Even though Florida State wasn't really a school I thought about back when I was applying for colleges, it's honestly the best choice I could've made. Everyone is so friendly, the school pride is intoxicating, the classes are actually interesting, the teachers are extremely impressive, and the campus is beautiful. I wouldn't choose any other school over Florida State and I'm glad I had the opportunity to join the Seminole family!

Overall Experience: I love the school itself it is so pretty here. I also really enjoy all of my classes and teachers at FSU. They are all super nice and really want you to learn. The main thing that makes it an "okay" experience is because I don't have any friends. I'm an introvert and for me it is very hard for me to make friends. I wish I had a better social life and so if I was able to restart the fall semester the first thing I would do differently is going out more and talking to more people and join some clubs that FSU has to offer.

Overall Experience: I originally began my studies as a Communication Science major however I did not receive adequate counseling from my advisors. I recently switched to a Family and Child Sciences major and the advising is much better and more dedicated to the students. I have enjoyed all of my professors so far and have not had any issues working with my teachers. They have made it very easy for students to access them in order to further their studies.

Overall Experience: I'm extremely fond of the large range of majors and how they are separated into groups. FSU puts a particular amount of time into making sure that students who have chosen their majors stay on track or have many options to switch into. My best experience so far was becoming apart of the Circus which takes more than just potential performers, there are also spots available for people who wish to work behind the scenes. The Circus is completely student run and it's one of the things that's just so unique about Florida State.

Overall Experience: I LOVE FSU! Florida State University is one of the nicest campuses I have ever seen. It's beautiful and they are always looking to improve. Also the people at this school are so nice. If you smile, someone will smile back at you. The professors want you to succeed and are willing to help.

I am proud to be attending such a great place in my pursuits of my career. Although, financially it can be a bit of a burden getting my higher education is something I will never look back on.

Overall Experience: I love my school! I couldn't have chosen a better university to pursue my career goals. My first home football game experience was amazing! I wasn't really into going to football games in high school but it is true when they say that college football is a completely different experience. The student section is the best part where everyone really shows their school spirit. In October we had a haunted house on campus and I didn't really know how to feel about it but it was actually really fun and scary! The Florida State University is unique because we have tons of traditions here on campus, one being that on you twenty first birthday you get thrown into our world famous Westcott Fountain. If I could do it all over again, I would still choose my dream university since I was a little girl, The Florida State University!

Overall Experience: My school is amazing and the program I am in is even better. It is totally specialized and has me on the right track toward obtaining a career in my dream field. The professors are all former or current professionals in my field of interest and offer a wealth of knowledge and assistance on a variety of related and non-related subjects. I can't wait to learn as much as possible from them.

Overall Experience: Of course, I would choose this school over again. Florida State has a great curriculum. The students here are very friendly, and I could tell that their futures are bright. Everyone from the staff and students are intelligent beyond textbook knowledge. Honestly, I am glad I chose this school. I couldn't have found a better fit.

Overall Experience: I believe that I made the right choice in schools. I feel that Florida State has more than enough opportunities for me to make friends and build my resume for medical school and jobs. I plan on joining more clubs. One thing I wish I could do differently is researching professors ahead of time because there is no regulated teaching system which makes some classes more difficult to learn the subject than others. The student body is very invested in the school's activities and I believe it is because they chose to come to this university where they knew they could be themselves. I enjoy that the campus is so diverse.

Overall Experience: Although I wish I could attend somewhere that specializes in sciences, FSU does have much to offer. I felt the campus was easy to navigate so I did not need a map after the first few days of classes. It has its own circus tent and anyone can audition or sign up to be part of the circus. It also has its own club where you can watch performances. There are also many research opportunities, especially if you are part of the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program, where you can help perform research, even if it is not under your major. I found the professors to be overall very friendly. I am currently majoring in biology, but I also hope to major in international affairs, and with FSU being at the capital of the state, anyone majoring in int. affairs or poly sci or anything related would find FSU to be a great environment to study in.

Overall Experience: The application experience was easy and I got my admissions answer on the day applications were due. Every person in the admissions office was friendly every time I called with different questions. Any time I e-mailed someone I got a quick response with in the same day or the very next day.

Overall Experience: I applied and visited right after FSU's football team had won the national championship so it was the school spirit that really drew me in. I have gotten involved in clubs that allow me to teach dance classes to underpriviliged kids and to gain friendships that will help me through the tough times I have going on at home.

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.
