4 College Junior

Drug Safety: FSU police are abundant and let students know of the lack of tolerance. Those who break the laws are arrested. The Police offer classes with regard to alcohol and drug safety. No one has ever pressured me to partake in alcoholic or drug activities nor do they exclude me because I am not interested in the use. Clubs and organizations (religious) offer alternative to event, activities, parties that do not include any use of alcohol or drugs.

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are older and FSU is a very old school, but they have been working to rebuild and remodel with up-to-date facility requirements.

Administration: Facility is strict when it comes to class attendance, students may not miss more than two classes. Excused absences must fall within certain limits. I do not live on campus

Academics: FSU offers a vast array of academic majors and adds new ones regularly. The school works hard and does a great job of finding knowledgeable professors. Most of which are highly recognized in their specified fields. The curriculum for fields of study are very comprehensible offering important information with student overload.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
