Weather: The fall and winter here in Tallahassee is beautiful. It get cold but not to cold to the point where it snows. The only time the weather sucks is in the summer because it rains out of no where, but thats florida for you.

Drug Safety: The drug scene depends on who you associate yourself with, the popular activity at this university is drinking. It is known for a great nightlife so alcohol is very popular. However our school enforces the use of it illegally on campus.

Scholarships: I personally didn't receive any financial aid or scholarships, but I know many people who did. The only real issue is they are slow with processing money and requests.

Campus Food: Dining halls can get boring sometimes because they serve the same food rotations. However, there are other restaurants on campus that are good to offset the dining hall.

Academics: I love all of my classes and I have gotten something out of all of the classes that I have taken so far. None of my classes have seemed like a waste of time, nor have they seemed like useless information. I have enjoyed and learned from all.

Campus Housing: Living on Campus is very convenient since it is nearly impossible to find good parking spots right before class. It is also easy to make friends through the dorms. Your relationship with your roommate is everything. If you do not like your roommate, be sure to change rooms. If you don't, then you are likely to think of your dorm in a more negative light. It's not perfect, but it is a lot more convenient than other living situations.

Off-Campus Housing: While there are multiple choices of complexes offered, within a multitude of price ranges, many of the buildings are poorly constructed with thin walls, or fixtures that are broken due to failure to replace them or installing them in a rush. It is hard to find a complex that is worth the money, or has a dependable, reliable maintenance system that responds to problems quickly and efficiently.

Transportation: There are multiple stops on multiple routes that the Florida State Universities transportation services provides. Late at night, there are busses that run around campus and will deliver you to your destination safely and conveniently.

Diversity: The diversity at FSU is great! Campus is full of people of all races, ethnic origin, and sexual orientation. For the most part, people feel very much like they belong.

Off-Campus Housing: Everything close to campus is a complete rip off. They take advantage of the fact that students want to live close by and charge ridiculous rates.

Local Area: Tallahassee is very much a college town. As much as I love it, there isn't a lot to do outside of campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are many natural parks, springs, and scenic and woodsy areas that the students visit from time to time. Numerous sports clubs and involvement groups allow students to meet people with similar interests. They even have a circus club, in which the students practice circus acts and develop a show for the whole student body to enjoy. The town is primarily a college town so locals are very diluted, but normally they will greet and smile when a student passes by.

Party Scene: There is always something to do close to campus, off campus, and on campus. There are many house parties for GDIs, frat parties for frat stars, and get togethers for the "in-betweeners." There is a strip of bars that is very popular amongst the student body and there are three clubs, in which one of them brings many famous electronic artists to DJ for very cheap. The primary transportation is walking, but taxis are cheap and affordable. ($4-$10 normally.)

Off-Campus Housing: There are a variety of choices ranging from private dorms to house to apartments and so on. The cost of the places close to campus is pretty steep and there is less parking, and the cost of the residencies moderately far from campus are fair, but it is definitely more convenient and safe to be around campus.

Guys & Girls: Literally so many attractive guys. Mostly country boys or tan South Florida beach boys. So many are into fishing or hunting. Most of the girls are skinny and good looking. Pretty girls with Southern charm.

Party Scene: Theres always something to do for everyone... every night, not just weekends. The bars at the strip are 18+ to get in. Some of the other local bars are 21+. Theres always a house party going on somewhere close to campus. The fraternities are always fun also. If you're not into that scene theres other things to do like the on campus movie theater and so on. Concerts are frequent, typically EDM, country music, or hip hop. The night nole is a bus free to students that takes you basically anywhere off campus you need to go at night. Cabs are also everywhere and I think they're $4 if you show your FSU id.

Drug Safety: It depends on where you go and who you know. The bars are strict with IDing at the door and who gets drinks once inside. Theres usually a lot of security around but drinking underage isn't impossible... especially if you're a girl. The fraternities are... fraternities. Super easy to drink here... again if you're a girl, or in this case a pledge/brother. If you're not seeking drugs you probably won't see them.

Campus Housing: The priority number system sucks. FSU does rolling admission, so if you get in later, your housing priority number will be pretty bad and you'll most likely end up in the older, smaller dorms. However, I hear they're knocking these old buildings down and building new ones soon. All of the newer dorms are really nice and spacious. The upperclassmen dorms are nice but most people tend to move off campus.

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.
