Overall Experience: It depends on what your major is if Florida State has a good program for that or not. Luckily for me, Florida State has the most advanced and reputable Choral Music Education program in the State of Florida. The professors in the College of Music are commited to seeing you succeed and help music impact others lives. They provide lots of outreach opportunities to gain experience in your major.

Athletics: I never thought going to a college with such rich traditions would be important to me. But after coming to Florida State, I fell in love with it even more. Getting into the school spirit on football game days is the best part because there is just a feeling in the air that is exhilarating. It is almost as if the Seminole tribe is alive on campus. Of course, our school has had its fair share of bad publicity. However, that is not all Florida State athletics is about and at the end of the day, we are still one tribe.

Off-Campus Dining: dinning sround campus isn't very healthy but it's duable because it's not too expensive but it adds up after a while

4 College Freshman

Academics: academics at fsu push me to do my best because the work is challenging but I know if study properly I can get the grades I want but it requires a lot of work

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is okay because even though their nice and close to campus they are very expensive which on top of tuiton makes it difficult to be able to pay

3 College Freshman

Administration: administration does and okay job at managing what students do

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I personally think greek life is great because in my opinion it helps the school by raising awareness to certain causes and having fundraisers to help those causes. Also, the events they have are a great way for everyone to get together and enjoy themselves and be able to meet all sorts of new people that can help them develop their connections.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm that I live in is okay inside its decently organized but the location isn't ideal but it's duable. The pricing is very high.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't even get half of my tuition covered so it's difficult for my parents to pay the rest without struggling. i only get a minimal amount of money from FAFSA

3 College Freshman

Local Area: the local area isnt too populated it's mainly just the college kids

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: It is a huge deal here. Greeks get their stereotypes, some are true some are not. It is consuming on campus and hosts huge parties and is the main talk for most conversations.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My financial aid was academics based, it all took place online on a main page, hassle free. Called with questions and they helped me sufficiently. Used it for books and essentials from the bookstore, plus room and board and some of the tuition.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Bryan and Landis hall are the best. Kellum and Salley are the worst. amenities are average, kitchen, lobby, given furniture, etc. Social atmosphere is better in the smaller residence halls, cost is reasonable, convenience depends on where your dorm is to proximity to what you want (classes, union, etc.), housing process was simple.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Courses are a mix of easy As and extremely challenging. No matter what, the professors or TA's will always be there ready to help you in any way if you are willing to take initiative to learn. There is a large variety of classes to be taken, and class sizes range from 20 students to 200 students.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The police are always there to take care of problems. Students and faculty's safety is number one priority on campus. Security is very efficient and quick.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: To me, it is quaint yet lovely. Many outdoor activities can be done. The people are the friendliest in the world. There are many fine arts and cultural events available. Shopping isn't that great, but it is enough. Safety is impeccable. No nearby professional sports.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are huge here. Campus revolves around them on game days, and school spirit is always high for sports. Everyone is active and participates in athletics some way or another.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They give a lot of leniency, yet their main focus is the safety of the students. You don't feel withheld from anything or bombarded with restraints.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of local places that have great food for good prices. some are nearby, most are driving distance though.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties happen every night. They are tons of fun, especially at Pots or the Strip. It definitely makes students love the school more.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The city is practically run by college students. It's not the safest area but it has a lot to offer. There is always something to explore.

Scholarships: The financial aid office is a nightmare but other than that as long as you have good test scores from high school and keep your GPA up you will receive a fair amount of financial aid. They also offer many student loans.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I have never loved football so much before attending FSU. You hear the word "undefeated" at least once a day. Nothing brings the students together more than football season, it's amazing.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Breaking school policies always have consequences that a student must do or else they will be given an academic hold, making one unable to register for classes.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: You can find a party pretty much any day of the week. I always have a good time going out.

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.
