4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: FSU is a wonderful place to be. I was not sure about coming here at first but now into my sophomore year i could not image a better school.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Since FSU is so large the diversity here is enormous. Many people from all over.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: FSU has a beautiful campus. Teachers are always approachable, which is important in such a large school. Always something to do whether on campus or not.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Many different libraries to pick from.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: Internet is always fairly decent. Never used a computer lab on campus expect for taking a quiz or test.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The FSU bus system seems to be reliable. The only difficulty I have had with it is figuring out the times and which bus is best for where I want to go.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a exceptional amount of security on campus which allows students to feel safe and secure when walking alone at night. The Wellness center is advanced and provides really great services however it is difficult to get an appointment when you are really requiring to see a doctor.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I have not experienced much of any Greek life since I have not joined a sorority and I have only lived here for a couple months.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: FSU buses and public buses are free and go outside campus. The public buses serve a large distance of locations outside of campus which makes it easy to discover different parts of Tallahassee. Taxis are only $5.00 with your FSU I.D. which makes it easy and reliable to get back to campus if ever anyone is in a bad situation and needs to get home quickly.

Campus Quality: The academic programs are challenging and thought provoking. The faculty, student and volunteer assistance and tutoring outside of the classroom is extraordinary and makes the exceptional class much less daunting then they could be.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: As expected, Florida State is predominantly white, and multicultural groups are not as big here as they are at University of Florida.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I enjoy going off campus to eat. The options are certainly better than on-campus dining.

Overall Experience: Some aspects are very different from what I expected. The party scene is not as wild as I imagined, and football culture dominates all else. I've found plenty of great friends, however, which is all that really matters to me. The further I go into my major, the more creative people I expect to find; perhaps then I'll find better people to party with.

Transportation: The bus system at Florida State is great and covers a lot of ground; they also have a lot of buses going at once. Taxis can be expensive because a lot of people use them. Zip cars are crazy expensive but they are super useful.

Weather: It's Florida so the weather is almost always warm and I prefer the cold but some people love it! It doesn't rain as much as I thought it would and it's great for sports.

Drug Safety: A ton of people are drinking here and most of them are underage. It's pretty rough and it's not uncommon to come across people under the influence every weekend.

Health & Safety: You won't feel in danger but there is a lot of underage drinking and drugs going on which you can expect at any campus but we are known for being a party school.

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.
