5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Florida State University has everything. We just won the national championship, the night-life is great, the library is great, the buildings are historic. If I could do it again....I would.

3 College Junior

Local Area: I could never see myself living here after graduation. The school is gorgeous but not so much the city.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing could be a lot better. Some of the dorms are just in terrible condition.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I am in huge amounts of debt because my family is "average" and with 4 kids in college, therefore we barely get any financial aid to help with my schooling.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There is something to do every night of the week.

Off-Campus Housing: There are some REALLY great dorms, and then there are some not so good ones. It's pretty much based on luck which one you get.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone here is fantastic, they are kind, helpful, and interesting.

Scholarships: Make sure you pay attention to deadlines and amounts; it's not too hard to get financial aid but if you wait too long it takes awhile, due to everyone else trying to get aid.

Administration: It can be really strict if you live in the more crappier dorms with restricted visitation but other than that, you can get away with a lot

Campus Quality: Everywhere on campus isn't only nice but not too far away from each other. SO if you have to study and then go to the gym and then go get food you can walk to all of those locations from each other.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Everybody is so willing to just be friends. There are so many outgoing and loving people. Of course there will be the few occasional students who are just rude or against the world. But for the most part, everybody is just having fun.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I absolutely love the atmosphere that FSU radiates.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: All of my financial aid money was applied and then refunded into my account with no problems

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is huge here. Even if you are not personally involved in Greek Life. You know about it and may have even partied at the houses.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not the best but not the worst. There have definitely been a few stories about robberies and whatnot but they were quickly fixed.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Everybody is so different here and that is what makes the campus such a great place to be. No matter where you go, when you meet somebody there is already a different story to hear from the new person that you have met.

Transportation: There are constantly buses running around that allow a student to get to class. Sometimes the bus is late, but with the Trans Loc app the whole process is a lot easier.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It is obvious that most kids do drugs but at the same time there are a lot who do not.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love being able to go to all of the restaurants that are within a close range from campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of different options, from the many fast-food and chain restaurants, to the locally owned restaurants, to high-end meals. Some of the nicer restaurants will be in the Downtown area, around the capital, but there are a few other nicer-dining options. There are a lot of chain or fast food restaurants very close to campus, but anything nicer will be a bit farther away.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There are always parties and drink specials at nightclubs. Under-21s can get into most nightclubs, though they aren't allowed to drink. There are many Greek parties that are open to non-Greeks, but there are also just huge house parties all the time. It is very rare for cops to "bust" a party near FSU. On-campus/dorm drinking will usually be caught - though not necessarily punished, just shut down - so it isn't a good idea to risk that.

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.
