Health & Safety: We have a text message and email alert system that notifies us about any crime and where to avoid and even storms that are approaching. We get a lot of emails about sexual assault prevention and tips, which shows some effort from the school. I don't hear often about sexual assaults, which is good. But like any college it does happen.

Overall Experience: There is definitely a huge variety of courses at FSU. For my specific major in the college of human sciences, the quality of courses and professors has been amazing! Some of the gen ed classes have not so great professors though. Class size has been great for my personally. My major is smaller, so I have smaller classes and have the opportunity to be one on one with the teacher if needed.

Overall Experience: The career center is a great resource and it has so many great connections and opportunities. Some majors (like mine) provide a internship course that is required so you get placed in a work site so complete hands on experience in a setting similar to what you want to do in your career.

Campus Housing: Now that FSU is tearing down all the old dorm buildings, the housing is great because they are all mostly new or renovated. I lived in an older one my freshman year, but it was still one of the better "old" dorms. It was very different than the nicer new dorms but it was still fine and I survived. But they have gotten rid of my old dorm and replaced it already and are currently tearing down other old dorms. The housing should be fantastic at FSU soon.

Greek Life: Greek life is really huge at Florida State. Most greek life females in my classes talk to others as if they are lower than they are and they tend to be very cliquey. But, there are many greek like females who are awesome and some of my closest friends. I think a lot of non-greeks view the greek life as a bunch of people who pay for friendships and party too much. I'm indifferent about greek life, I think it is a great opportunity if that's what you want to do.

Athletics: As national champions, I would say that athletics is very important at FSU and the team performance is great. Football overshadows most other major sports, but our other sports teams are just as great. Each one has a good following of fans and there is huge school spirit surrounding all of our sports.

Overall Experience: Florida State University has been the most amazing experience. The school is full of spirit and love for itself and even the city of Tallahassee has a huge love for FSU. As a student you feel included and so proud to be a part of such a great university with all of the old traditions. Fall at Florida State is my favorite time because of football, the whole school becomes "one". The campus is one of the most beautiful schools I have seen, nothing can compare. For me personally, I have had wonderful professors and advisors who have been there for me and helped guide me in the direction I need to go for my degree and future career. I wouldn't go back and change my decision to be a Nole for anything.

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe on campus during the night. However, I use Florida State's resources to the fullest. My number one favorite resource that FSU provides for students is the Safe Bus. I can't count how many times I've used the safe bus late at night to get from the library to my dorm or wherever else I needed to go. The Safe Bus is extremely efficient and reassures me that I can study late knowing that I have a safe ride to my dorm. The campus is also very well lit. During the cooler months I would go on evening runs and every single time I would run by either a campus security or campus police officer just roaming around.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Florida State University has been amazing. I have nothing but great things to say about my school. For the most part class style and class sizes are manageable. For example, my english course had a total of around 16 students making it very possible for the teacher to walk around and tend to every students need. However, my math course had around 300 students in it making it virtually impossible for the professor to tend to our needs during class hours. Nonetheless, each of my professors had various office hours and help sessions making it easy to get to know your professor. It was a challenge going from high school to college because you are so independent in all aspects but I was able to get the academic support and help that I needed.

Overall Experience: I have many friends from my hometown that are either interning or have already graduated and have an amazing job. This gives me reassurance and hope that I will be able to do the same. I constantly get emails from my advisers for internship opportunities. There are always career fairs and expos going on throughout the semester. I have confidence that I will be able to land a secure job or internship after and during my college career.

Campus Housing: Considering the fact that I spent my first year in the oldest dorm on campus, I did not enjoy campus housing at all. I was in a dorm that was built in 1941. Smith hall was community style living. I lived on the 10th floor which meant I had to take a flight of stairs because the elevator did not go that high. Many of my friends who lived in the building had cockroaches in their rooms along with mold and mildew. To be honest, this residence hall was a huge health hazard and should not have been open. When I tried to switch halls, Florida State denied me the opportunity due to a housing "overload" so I was stuck living in Smith Hall for the entirety of my freshman year.

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge party of campus life at Florida State University. Many of our fraternities and sororities are nationally recognized. Although many non-greeks tend to have a negative attitude towards greek life, I think it is a lot of fun and a great way to get involved.

Athletics: Florida State University has the most amazing school spirit I have ever encountered. We recently won the National Championship. Coming into freshman year I remember being proud of wearing garnet and gold but now I bleed garnet and gold. I never missed a home football game and never plan to. I have also attended many volleyball, soccer and basketball games. The hole spirit is always present and alive.

Overall Experience: Florida State University has provided me with the best first year of my college experience. The resources for academics and social activities that my university has to offer are endless and top notch. For example, when I couldn't find peer-reviewed sources for my research paper, I met with a librarian. She had already done research prior to meeting with me and together we were able to figure it out. Football games are also one of my favorite experiences. The energy Doak Campbell stadium has on game days is unbelievable and indescribable. Go Noles!

Overall Experience: i like courses and professor in general. There are some couses which are really tough but you have to work hard in order to make the most out of your classes.

Some proffesors are not as good and helpful as you expect but i consider most of them are very good and hepful.
