3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: This year I have lived on campus but am planning to live off campus next year. There were a huge amount of places to look at when looking for off campus housing and many options. There is a lot that is near campus and most places are on the campus or city buss routes that allow transportation to be easy. Off campus housing is cheaper than on campus housing and there's some more freedom inbeing off campus and some different opportunities based on where you live and what's around you, most people after freshman year prefer to be off campus. The cost of places off campus ranges from where its located and how new it is etc.. but you can find somewhere that fits your budget and you feel comfortable because there are so many options available to you. As for anything else I can't say since I've lived in a dorm this year.

Academics: I have learned a lot during my time here and can tell that I am furthering my academic knowledge. Almost all my professors have shown knowledge and understanding for the subjects which they teach. The curriculum and workload match what they are trying to teach us and I never feel as if I have "busy work" but feel assignments work to further my understanding and knowledge. Registering is by class ranking and works on a first come first serve basis so one must prepare and know what classes they need prior to registration opening up to ensure getting the classes desired at the times and days desired. The ACE center provides a great place for extra study help on all sorts of subject matter and can be arranged for group or private tutoring and help. Also the libraries are great places for group or quiet individual study

Transportation: I only live 4 hours away so travelling isn't too much of a hassle. However as convenient as it is to take the bus home, the cost of a ticket home is worth more than the amount it would cost me in gas which is inconvenient in terms of spending money. Also to attempt to fly home would be inconvenient as I could spend less/ just about as much money for a round trip to New York City as I would to fly to Tampa or Orlando and most flights make crazy stops in places completely out of the way. However I have been lucky to ride home and back with a cousin who has a car and so it has been pretty easy. Other wise a family member would have to drive here to get me and bring me back. Another option is that are class has a Facebook page and we can find people who live in the same area as us who we can ride home with and split the cost of gas with and that also allows us to make new friends. For most students who live in the state of Florida, transportations home isn't too difficult. as for on campus transportation it is pretty good. The busses run most the day and run different routes on campus and off of campus to near apartments and such. There is even an app as well as the website where you can see which bus routes are running and when they will arrive at a stop nearest you.

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been great for my first year. It allows you to be within walking distance from almost everything you need on campus. IT's a great way to be involved and get to know campus better. The dorms are slightly older due to the age of the school itself but all have undergone renovations and are livable. Obviously some are better than others but for the most part people are generally satisfied with their dorms. All dorms have washers and dryers available, even though getting one may take some time as many people live in each building and they can't provide enough or every resident. There are kitchens and study rooms in all dorms and depending on the sixe each floor may have its own of each or alternating floors may have one kitchen and the other study room for larger dorms. The halls have hall government that students may join and have events for different things for residents. Also for away games most dorms have the football game on in their TV room or area where residents can get together to support the team which is great. Lounge areas also have game tables such as ping pong or pool etc.

Greek Life: I personally am not in Greek life but everyone gets along for the most part I seems. There will always be stereotypes about Greeks and non- Greeks but everyone gets along for the most part. Greek life is a big part of the college experience but plenty of people don't join. If you know people in Greek life then you can probably go to some Greeks events and have a good time without being involved. Most people who are in Greek life seem to really enjoy it.

Weather: The weather doesn't really affect campus experience too much. It's Florida so it will be hot and rainy in the summer and some of fall and since I've lived in Florida my whole life I'm used to it. Rain is no fun when you want to go to a football game but luckily it only delayed one game this season. The rain is unpleasant when you have to walk a far distance across campus or walk around a lot but if you are prepared for it its better to deal with. The cold and the heat are the same way. As long as you prepare yourself for it then it is manageable. Plus there are some really beautiful days where you can really appreciate the campus and how beautiful it is and have a great day out on Landis Green relaxing

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. There are blue light emergency stations everywhere and I frequently see campus security driving around campus. Another great thing is the Safe bus that runs throughout most the night that you can call to pick you up from where ever you may be and bring you to where you need to go so that you don't have to walk in a potentially unsafe area. But overall most people seem to feel safe enough to walk around campus and to near by locations without too much fear of danger.

Technology: I personally have my own computer therefore I don't use the computer labs except for in my math lab classes that are required. However there seems to be a large amount of computer labs for required math labs. Also there are a good amount of computers in the libraries and depending on the time of day and time of the semester it can be easy to find a computer of difficult during more popular times of day and semester. I also have multiple printers in my room with my roommates so we do all of our own printing but have never heard complaints about on campus printing. The network runs better when laptops use an Ethernet cable as opposed to the wifi. Wifi can be slightly unreliable but is most likely due to the large number of students on the network at all times. In the labs, desktop network runs smoothly and with decent speed. I think that it is better and easier fir people to have their own computers just because it is easier to do things on your own from where ever you are instead of trying to find time to get to a computer in the library or lab areas.

Scholarships: The only issue with Financial Aid came when I first began and making sure everything was properly done so that I was able to receive my loans and aid. after the first time it ran extremely smooth and I had no problems. The people in the financial aid office are very helpful when ever I have had an issue or even just a question.

Off-Campus Dining: There are several off campus dining options located within walking distance of campus on all sides of campus. There are also endless options within a 10 mile driving radius of campus. The variety is great and the prices are decent. A good mix of local and chain restaurants to suit everyone's taste

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.
