5 College Freshman

Athletics: Our athletics are a huge part of campus. Our football games are nearly always sold out and its extremely difficult to get tickets. The basketball games and baseball games are highly attended as well. Our teams are great and so is the school spirit like the golden girls and the fans. Intramural is very popular as well because a lot of the fraternities join them.

Off-Campus Housing: All the off campus housing apartments are pretty nice. The nicest and closest to campus are always the most expensive which i don't like very much, and the cheaper apartments are much farther from campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Theres tones of different types of food and restaurants to go to off campus, but the delivery fees usually are the worst.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: FSU is definitely known for the party and social scene. I have to say it is honestly a great time and adds to the fun experience of college. Its always a great time going out in tallahassee, especially after game days when we win!

Administration: FSU really buckles down when it comes to this stuff. FSUPD is always ready for anything and FSU does not tolerate underage drinking in dorms. you must write an essay, pay a fee, and take an alcohol course.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I don like the dining halls very much, and id like to see healthier cheaper options as well. salad creations is great but it can get expensive.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in a community style dorm wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Of course I wish i could've had my own room or bathroom but the bathrooms were cleaned everyday and were probably more clean that i would've been if it were my own bathroom.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The area around Tallahassee isn't that great. However there are some very nice apartment complexes.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of "tallahassee" places, which i absolutely adore.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Florida State is an insanely large university and the parties are amazing!

5 College Sophomore

Administration: They did a great job when I was at Landis.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I've received everything i needed when it came to aid. They were nothing but kind.

I definitely think they arent getting the attention they deserve because i think they work hard for what they do.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Chilis on campus is awful and makes me feel like they are just using me for my money.

However, everything else I really like. Its convenient!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its not too bad, they have a great system.

The older dorms are honestly disgusting.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love the restaurants in Tallahassee.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I think they do a good job of being strict in the correct areas and not letting outside issues affect student's academic success.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was awesome! I received financial aid without hassle.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Best options are the all girl dorm Jennie Murphy, and Degraff is great but location is away from center of campus, and Reynolds Hall is nice but it is a wellness dorm. The worst are Salley Hall and Dorman/Deviney.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We need to switch up the options

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Tally has a great nightlife

3 College Junior

Administration: Just as strict as any other university IMO

2 College Junior

Scholarships: They took away my aid last minute

3 College Junior

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.
