Overall Experience: Florida State has been so helpful in helping me find a career after graduation. I've seen any prestigious schools, but none of them are as useful in establishing my future as FSU.

Overall Experience: I rated my school a 3 out of 5 because certain things at my school I wish I could change. But I would have to say that the school spirit we have is so awesome I feel like as if we are a family. We have morning pep rallys and our support for the athletes is the best.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I recognize that this is a good university, however I feel very strongly that it is the wrong fit for me. It's very overwhelming, and it seems that students and faculty alike are more concerned with themselves than with being friendly and welcoming. I feel like I would be better off elsewhere.

Overall Experience: I have always hated being a student, but I'm enjoying myself at FSU. The classes are mostly enjoyable, and so are the teachers. Classmates are either very easy to make friends with, or they are extremely disagreeable. The variety of people, students and teachers alike, is wonderful and very eye-opening. I commute from 45 minutes away, though, so getting involved on campus definitely is not easy. It's also too much of a party school for me, but hey, that's Tallanasty for you.

Overall Experience: Florida State University has so many opportunities for me as a student. Not only is it a sports oriented school but there are always new opportunities for you to get involved. There are over 600 clubs for you to join as well as Intramural sports, sports clubs, and Greek life. Florida state is a very academic school. All of the academic majors and programs are at the top of the state. Florida State university is a very diverse school that gives me the opportunity to met people from all over the world, as well as the opportunity to travel abroad.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My university has a lot of diversity in everything; such as clubs, people, organizations, activities, interest groups, and I like that aspect a lot which is why I think the school's so great! However, something that brings the overall experience down is that there's so many people who act disrespectful or harm other students, all the time, and then when we're claimed to be a tobacco free campus, people are smoking all the time as that's really seen as just a suggestion more than anything.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't drink, party, and I didn't go greek. Therefore, I am alone. Getting involved on campus has been one of the hardest things I've ever done. The people here are so different from me. I miss the culture, spice, and joy of Miami life. I wasn't ready for the "Deep South" of Florida State University. I am an oddity. I do not use greek letters to categorize me, I am no scientist, and I am no poet. I am just a girl that wants to spend time with others but it seems as though I need a proper invitation to and mine just got lost in the mail.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Florida State is so incredibly welcoming. Everything about the atmosphere is friendly and exciting. There's always something happening on campus, and it's always amazing. This place really does take care of you. You don't have to worry about making friends, because there are HUNDREDS of clubs and organizations to join, and if you don't find one that suits you, you can make one! There are countless resources to help students do as well as they can, and it's honestly so comforting. The faculty here are amazing and truly the best in their field, and they are always happy to encourage and help students who put forth the effort. I was so nervous about being on my own, but I cannot possibly see myself at any other school than FSU.

Overall Experience: I love Florida State; the people, the professors, the atmosphere. I was disappointed to have not left my home state of Florida, but I am so glad I did not because this is a wonderful school filled with opportunity and kindness.

Overall Experience: It seems like a pretty decent state school. Even if you are in a class with 300+ people you can still visit the professor during their office hours. Some classes (especially math ones) have quizzes quite literally every week and are a bit of a pain. The food here is pretty bad- the food itself actually tastes pretty decent, but the portions provided are incredibly small (ex: 4 servings at suwanee would still be less than an average serving at a restaurant)

Overall Experience: I like that this is a large school and there is such a variety in the student population. I transferred from a very small college, so this was a major difference to me. I'm disappointed that the Anthropology department is so small for such a large school, but the teachers try hard and are good at their jobs. I especially like that there are so many off campus living options that are not actually that far from campus.

Overall Experience: The FSU student body has an exuberance of school spirit and passion for academic achievement. Everyone from the faculty and students are extremely welcoming and loving. The campus offers everything that students could ever need or want to excel academically and socially so that they can receive a great education and enjoy the best years their lives. Great environment for absolutely any type of student to feel welcome and find friends. Can't go wrong with FSU. GO NOLES!!

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.
