3 College Senior

Diversity: The rate of diversity is not anything special in this institution. Except for an racially-insensitive incident that made campus news back in September 2013 the institution has not become the groundbreaking example for diversity nor a harbinger of homogeneity.

4 College Senior

Transportation: It's easy to use and there are many busses that run a lot of the day and night.

Campus Housing: It was good for the first year to be on campus. The dorms were decent do for being older. It just cost a lot more to live in a dorm rather then a house or apartment

3 College Senior

Scholarships: The scholarship process was only ok for me. If I had better people in high school to guide me towards scholarships, it might have been different. It is also difficult when your parents are still together and my a decent amount of money to get any aid. While both my parents work and make ok money. It's not enough to send me and brother to college but many scholarships offered go to stud mets whose parents make less than mine do.

Health & Safety: The campus police do what they need to do to keep potentially threatening people away from our campus.

Transportation: FSU provides a bus with tuition, which can be fantastic but also overfull of students and running behind. I suggest you arrive early just in case the bus is full so you aren't late for classes.

Majors: I wish some classes would have been available more semesters, and not once every 3 years (mainly marine biology type classes). If I could do it all over again, I would space my classes out per semester and not try to do them all at once. My career goal is to become a Veterinarian and I am concerned that the job market will drop for general practitioners with all the specialty that has been occurring.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: As long as your GPA is good, you will have no problems getting into the biology program. I recommend lots of studying, attending every lecture and letting off some steam once in a while to prevent the buildup of stress.

Diversity: FSU has a very diverse population of students. Most people are friendly and open to making new friends, but some fraternities can be very selective and judgmental. Most people have an open mind to everything.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: While I loved my apartment, the computer lab could use some fixing up. It was a bit on the expensive side, but close to campus. Parking was difficult and often hard to find at night.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Professors really care and try their best to encourage students to seek help if needed and participate in lectures.

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: There are a variety of things to do. From hitting up the strip, to clubbing off Pensacola street, or the bars/pubs downtown such as Andrews.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Athletics plays a huge part at FSU, especially football. There is tons of school spirit for all the teams, from football, baseball and basketball to tennis and even lacrosse.

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.
