Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus food options are very diverse. Students have the option of simple American classics like Panera and Chic- fil-a or they can even go for a Latin flare and go to Super Perros the Colombian restaurant or eat some Greek food at Pita Pit. There are a wide variety of options from many different cultures and aesthetics.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: The dinning halls have okay food. There is a wide variety of food options to choose from. There are also other food venues on campus such as Subway, Dennys, Salad Creations, and Papa Johns where you can use your meal plan/flex dollars.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I have been living off campus for the past three years and prefer it to living on campus. The cost is cheaper and the parking is not an issue. There is also the luxury of having more space and having your own room rather than sharing with another person as you would do if you lived in the dorms.

5 College Senior

Majors: I have enjoyed the Communications program at Florida State so far. The teachers in my program are excellent and really go out of their way to help you discover your inner talents and passions within the communication field. There are many internship and job opportunities that are offered through the program. There is even a private job fair just for communication students that allow them to network and have an opportunity to apply for an internship or job.

Majors: I have had two internships in my college career. My first one was working as a public relations and development intern at FSU college radio station. My responsibilities included working with local business and venues to promote local bands, working on advertising the station through social media and underwriting. The time commitment was reasonable and I gained college credit. I found my first internship though the school, and it was pretty simple process. I acquired my second internship thanks to my prior experience at the raid station. I currently hold an internship with a Production and Marketing company as their Social Media and Marketing coordinator.

Local Area: Tallahassee has an up and coming art scene. You can find a variety of local artists and their works in the art district on Gaines, where warehouses were converted into studio spaces, private theater stages, stores and local restaurants. For sports and recreation, students can go to the FSU Rez, where students can canoe, swim in the lake and do other activities.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Florida State offers many activities to do for students on campus, including campus parties and tabling events like Market Wednesday. They also offer a variety of classes at the Wellness center and the Lech Gym that include Zumba and Yoga. FSU also host special lectures called the Golden Tribe lecture series. These lectures are given by prolific individuals in the entertainment, political, and philanthropy realm. Some past lectures have included John Legend, Melissa Harris-Perry, Elie Wiesel and Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: Florida State had a variety of libraries that students can go to as well as computer centers where they can research. There are also a big green space known as Landis Green where students can socialize and has been known for hosting school socials. For hangout spots, students can go to the Union where there is a bowling allley, a student run club called ClubDownunder, a pottery shop, a movie theater, and a food court.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Everyone involved in Greek life is very involved in philanthropy and hosts many fundraising events. Majority of the fraternities and sororities have houses.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: At most of the parties, there is alcohol present. Most off these parties are off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are always people and services accessible when needed. I always feel that there is someone to turn to if I am ever in need.

Campus Food: In this review, I am only addressing the campus dining halls, Fresh Food and Suwannee. I got so, so sick of them. They are okay at first but they get very old.

Campus Quality: There are parts of campus that literally look like they came out of the Harry Potter films. Our many green spaces and outdoor facilities and surroundings are beautiful, and we can't forget about our Seminole Stadium...

Campus Quality: The College of Music possesses many, many practice rooms for students; more than other universities. We also have Ruby Diamond concert hall, which has the best acoustic quality of probably any other university concert hall in the state. We have a prestigious piano technology lab as well as a music research center that is known around the world.

Majors: I am in the Music Therapy program here, and it is wonderful! My professors are all very supportive, I have many opportunities to engage in experiential and service-based learning, and the program here is among the top 5 in the nation.

4 College Senior

Majors: There is, of course, the audition process; that's the most difficult part. The FSU College of Music is a very competitive school, but as long as you show the skills and potential that you have, you will be great!

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining really is great! There are many small/family-owned businesses and vegan/vegetarian options. If you like Pho, there are a few really good places to eat it!

College Senior

Greek Life: I am not a member of Greek life, so I don't think I would provide an accurate review.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The student body is very diverse. Being such a large university, though, it is hard to really pinpoint and describe all of our students.

3 College Senior

Transportation: The campus and public transportation seems pretty average.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Campus resources and FSUPD do their best to combat it, but drinking (especially underage drinking) is, I think, a relevant issue on and around campus.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics are such a huge part of the culture of FSU, especially football and baseball. Campus Rec is always out to recruit people to join in at the FSU Reservation, intramural sports, and campus activities.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I truly believe that joining a sorority really changed my college experience for the better. I have made the most amazing friends and while I am expanding my social horizons, I am also able to stay focused on my studies and have people who share those interests with me. My school has given me the opportunity to come into my own and grow as a leader, which I think is essential for making it in the world and actually making a difference instead of passively watching life happen.

5 College Junior

Majors: I just got accepted into the Public Relations major this past semester and I am so excited to be a part of it. I have already taken some of the classes that are a part of the program and they are absolutely incredible, as are the professors. They really have a lot of life experience in the PR field and have a lot of wisdom to share with us because of that, which we could not get from a textbook. The professors are also constantly trying to change with the times in order to provide different teaching styles for people who might learn differently.

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.
