5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great reputation and I will continue to graduate school

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not part of Greek life

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The quality of courses and professors at Florida State are great. They are available to help, and have TA's that can help students in their absence. The course load is manageable most of the time. The class sizes are great, some are small which personally suits me.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Involved in the student career center, there are many alumni and volunteers that love to help and make sure that each student's needs are met. The degrees that are obtained from studying at FSU allow the student to contain their studies later on in other schools, with a great name.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety on the Florida State campus is normal. I think that after a specific hour at night, no one wants to walk alone. There are many initiatives that make is easy for a police officer to escort you back to your dorm. That is a major plus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is okay. Some dorm rooms are bigger than others, and some are closer to the middle of campus. The cost is very expensive. To pay 3 thousand for a semester is ridiculous.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Florida State affects the social atmosphere of the campus in so many ways. I personally believe that greek life is a great thing to get involved in. I think that by doing so, the amount of people you will meet increases substantially.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at FSU are the best in the country. All the students are so involved and attend the games, the teams are among those of the best. The best part of attending games and getting involved is seeing all the other student's pride and love for their school. The school spirit at FSU is so high, and everyone loves it. The athletic facilities are in great condition and allow all students the opportunity to participate and use them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Florida State campus is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. To walk around a school that all the students absolutely love is the best feeling. The intro classes are great and totally possible. The best part of this school so far is the fact that there are so many amazing people everywhere. FSU is unique because the diversity of the students really enables conversation, and encourages you to go out and meet new people. I would choose FSU again because there is no other school in the world like it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a police department on campus, like most universities. There are also call stations all around campus so that students can use them when they are in need. In regards to theft, you can register your important items in a log on the campus police site to identify them. I have never felt unsafe on campus.

Campus Housing: Housing is pretty great here, though it is hard to get in if you don't apply early enough. Almost all the halls have been renovated to having at least suite-style dorms, and they have a lot of resources available to students, like toilet paper, laundry machines, study rooms, and more. Since the university itself is relatively compact, the classroom buildings can be reached swiftly and easily.

Greek Life: There are many people involved in Greek life and many who are not. I am among those who are not involved. However, I have heard that they do great things for the community, and that they host great parties. As far as I know, no one views the Greeks any different from non-Greeks, and the housing is pretty great.

Athletics: Going to at least one football game is essential. They are so much fun to see. The Marching Chiefs are fantastic, and the entire crowd gets into the spirit. Our football team did very well last year, and they are likely to continue doing so this coming semester. There are also so many other sports teams to get involved in, like soccer and even quidditch!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school has the best program for my major, which is why I applied to it in the first place. So far, all the professors I have had were proficient in their fields, and they were relatively engaging when lecturing about them. The dining halls are pretty decent, though I would recommend balancing your diet if you choose to eat there full time. There are so many activities to choose from, too. This way, there is something for everyone to do.

Greek Life: Most people on campus are involved in Greek life. I was never to interested in it, but I hear they have a sorority or fraternity for any and everything your interested in. I always felt like those involved in Greek life always felt superior. I'm not 100% sure, but I think if you're part of Greek life, you live in a house near campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really pay too much attention to the sports at this school, however football games are huge here. And most sports here are celebrated. A little too much one could say.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When I decided to attend FSU, I was excited to start college. However, after I attended orientation, I felt nothing but anxiety because of all the ideas I heard about FSU. I was never a big party goer, so the fact that this school was known as a party school made me nervous. However, when I met people who were going to attend FSU, I got even more anxious because of how immature they sounded and how artificial they sounded to me.

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.
