4 College Junior

Majors: I am very excited about my dual degree in Marketing and Music. My career goals are to become an Event Coordinator, work internationally, and create my own venue back in the U.S. As of now, I am trying to gain more experience for the field I want to work in and the only concerns I have is making sure I choose the right job/company and that I am able to pay off my debt as quickly as possible.

Majors: To be admitted in to the College of Music I had to apply and audition in order to get into the school. After my acceptance I had to jury every year for my first 2 years of college. If I didn't pass you would be dismissed from the College of Music.

For marketing I needed a GPA of 2.9 or higher.

Campus Housing: I definitely miss the convenience of classes and dining halls and being so close to friends. But, I am so thankful to have my own space off-campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I completed a FASFA but I do need more financial aid. Financial aid at my school can be helpful but I have not received enough for my needs.

5 College Junior

Transportation: If you're on campus you can literally walk anywhere. There is even a small grocery on campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I would always recommend, wherever you go, to have at least one or more friends with you. At my school we are surrounded by good parts and bad parts. It is the very definition of a college town but you know what's safe and what's not. You are in charge of your safety and you can always call for help.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The best part at attending my school is all sporting events are free for students and we have our own section.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: My experience with off-campus housing is great. I live walking distance from my school and it's really convenient to where my classes are located. The cost is easily a few hundred dollars cheaper and I have more space and my own kitchen. Some negatives is that you need to get a parking pass for your visitors, even local ones, because my apartment complex is really strict on parking. Other than that my experience is great as an off-campus student.

Weather: Up in northwest Florida, it's warm all year round, and only unbearably hot for summer and the first few weeks of fall.

Local Area: Great for college kids only, but it's certainly no place to raise a family.

Technology: The computer labs are a great place to get work done and you have wifi all over campus as long as you're close to a building.

Academics: It's hard to get a personal experience from the professors in the liberal studies classes because they're so large.

Academics: They know what they're doing, but it's not particularly easy to get help from them all the time.

Administration: Don't do drugs on cam pass. That's just stupid. Just go away from campus if you're going to do illegal things.

Campus Housing: The freshmen dorms don't provide a whole lot of privacy, but the on campus apartments are perfect and cheap!

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: At FSU, there is a wide variety of dorms available for students, and a lot of the time, students will get their first choice for housing. There are traditional, apartment-style, and suite style dorms to choose from. The older dorms have a lot of character and the newer dorms are very modern and state-of-the-art. RAs are always great, and dorm safety is a priority for FSU.

Scholarships: The financial aid process is not difficult, like many other schools, it is applications and essays. The staff of the financial aid office is great, because they will take the time to help you find scholarships and grants, or find work-study positions available. The scholarship for students who choose to study abroad is excellent too, and the office is great at helping students find the funds to study or intern abroad.

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.
