Like any other university, what you put into your experience is what you'll get out of it. This is especially true at a large institution like FSU. There's an enless amount of opportunities for everyone, both academic, social, and cultural. It's easy to feel "lost in the crowd" if you don't take the inititative to "put yourself out there." No one is going to hand you life experiences on a silver platter; you have to make the effort. You want to succeed academically and socially? Get involved in undergraduate research. Seek advice from faculty and peers. Join clubs and sports teams. Study abroad. Do an internship. These opportunities and more are available to those that want them. Your experience will be what you make of it, so put forth your best effort! I promise you can and will succeed at FSU

Athletics are huge at FSU, especially football. During fall semester, all the students look forward to the football game every Saturday. FSU has a top notch recreation facility that is available for all students to use. It is very easy to get involved in intramural and club sports at FSU with sports ranging from quidditch to ultimate frisbee to battleship (basically dodgeball in canoes), to bowling, fishing, racquetball, water polo, to all the basics including basketball, baseball/softball, football, soccer, volleyball, etc. Go Seminoles!

I'm a senior psychology major, and I absolutely love it! The professors are amazing. Most of the courses only consist of 4 exams throughout a semester so the workload isn't bad. All of the classes are extremely interesting, but there's a lot of information to remember. There are a ton of research opportunities available for students interested in graduate programs who need experience, and they're an excellent opportunity for letters of recommendation. The psych advisers always send out emails about internships and jobs that are available. The advisers also help students determine what they want to do after they graduate and make sure they're on the right track to achieve their post-grad goals.
