4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: We live in Florida so for most of the year the students will be seen wearing shorts, tanks, crop tops, and flip flops. We take a lot of pride in our team so we often wear a lot of team colors around campus. There's a lot of diversity on campus, and there really is no typical student.

Guys & Girls: Everyone dresses how they like. There are the fraternity boys and the dance majors, the goth girls and the preppy girls. Everyone is accepted and looks range from below average to above average.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students at FSU will admit that one of the more popular pastimes on campus is admiring the student body. The warm weather offers ample opportunity to bask in the sun. It also gives people a chance to show a little more skin. It can sometimes be distracting during the summer months, but you'd be hard-pressed to find someone that complains about it. As if that weren't enough, FSU students are also some of the friendliest in the South. Of course, in Tallahassee, the women outnumber men at a little over two to one, but that doesn't interfere with anyone making new friends.

Both the male and female students here are not afraid to show their stuff, especially during the warmer months. One of the more popular activities on campus is sitting on Landis Green and admiring other students basking in the warm summer sun. You can also attend the regularly-scheduled bikini and hard body contests sponsored by some of the local drinking establishments. Besides being easy on the eyes, the student body here also tends to be friendly and sociable. People aren't afraid to say hello or offer assistance if you look like you're in need. Southern hospitality is contagious, and FSU is considered one of the most student-friendly campuses in the nation.

Social Scene
The majority of students will agree that Florida State is one of the friendliest places in the country. Sure, it can be awkward at first, but it won't take long to meet new people and find a crowd to hang out with.
Hookups or Relationships?
While there are a number of couples on campus, there is also a thriving singles scene. There are several bars on the edge of campus-along the Tennessee Street Strip-that cater to the singles crowd with ladies-night drink specials and other events that offer the opportunity to mix and mingle.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
This depends on how outgoing you are. You can meet people just by hanging out in the dorms, but to really broaden your circle of friends, it's a good idea to participate in a student organization or some extracurricular activity. Many students do volunteer work in and around Tallahassee. Joining a fraternity or sorority is also a great place to meet other interesting students.
Dress Code
The students at FSU tend to dress casually. There are a few who are brave enough to dress up, but you have to remember, this is Florida, and the summer here can be warm and humid. From May to October, most people will be wearing shorts, T-shirts, and flip-flops. This isn't to say that they dress like slobs-just that most students dress for comfort.
