3 College Senior

Administration: They seem to be strict on some things but not others. Academic violations are pretty serious here, whereas one of the people on my hall once was smoking pot pretty consistently and to my knowledge never got caught even though they were reported. There are also lots of parties in the Greek houses of course.

Off-Campus Dining: There's so many restaurants around campus. Several Asian/oriental places, Jimmy John's, pizza places, etc. There's always somewhere to eat if you're hungry, and always something you'll like. Personally I love Panda Express and Genghis Grill.

Technology: Strozier gets very packed very quickly. It's probably most feasible to bring your own laptop to work wherever you want.

Campus Housing: Learn how to live in community and manage space

3 College Junior

Weather: I love Tallahassee because it gives you all four seasons without the snow. It does tend to rain a lot which affects main areas of our campus such as Landis Green and the Union. But it's always fun to through on your anorak and rain boots.

4 College Junior

Majors: If I could do it all over again I probably would. Just because I came in as a freshman and your advisors tell you that "no one knows what they want to be as a freshman" and although that is a very common case, I wish I was pushed to do more research, the amount that I do now as an incoming senior, so that I could have been on the right path for a longer period of time. But although it may have taken me longer than I would have wished to figure out what I want to do, taking some of the "wrong" classes taught me a lot. It also let me meet and work with a lot of people I might have never been able to work with and it made me some great connections. I am not too worried about finding a job in my field of finance because I know that I am well prepared from my classes and that FSU has allowed me to make so many great connections and has allowed me to be a part of things such as the Career Fair, opening my eyes to the things that I want and how to get there.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am a part of the College of Business and there is no application process, it's a very chill process. You just do well in the prerequisite courses and maintain a GPA of a 2.7 and your in.

5 College Junior

Academics: Florida State University has such a diverse amount of majors that students can study along side with amazing professors teaching the classes. They keep the registration process simple, allowing you to use course codes to search a class ahead of time and keep them in a shopping kart, then when it is your window to register you can go to your shopping kart and register for the classes you have already found. Coming in as a freshman getting use to college can be pretty tough but FSU allows study groups within your living halls/dorms to make the transition smooth. There are also many libraries on campus, the most famous one being Strozier, it has six floors including a basement and annexes. It provides computers, wifi, quiet floors, 24 hours, a starbucks, etc. Then there are other smaller libraries such as the music library and Dirac.

4 College Junior

Transportation: There are buses that run throughout the week not only to on campus stops but to off campus apartments as well which are all free for Florida State students. There are also "Night Noles" which is the bus system that runs through out the night also for free to pick up students and drop them off at home after a night of going out to prevent drinking and driving. FSU has also paired up with the company Yellow Cab, making it so that the fare for a taxi is only four dollars with a FSU I.D.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The Florida State University gives many options of meal plans. There are different amount of food priced at different increments depending on how many times you think you'll use it. There are two very popular dinning halls, Suwannee Dinning hall and Fresh Food Company where everyday has different breakfast, lunch, and dinner items available buffet style for students and staff to enjoy. There's also multiple food options in the student friendly Union. The variety of food is appealing to everyone Einstein Bagels, Subway, Pollo Tropical, Pizza Hut, etc. Of course theres Chili's too, which is lively and full of students all the time. It's the best place to grab a bite of food and catch up with friends. There's even two Starbucks on campus for when you are studying and need an extra boost to get through your hours in the library. The Trading Post is a great place to run into in between classes if your in need of a quick snack or soda. The best part about it is you can use Flex bucks at any of these places.

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.
