What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful, but it is definitely a large school. Being around so many other students provides many social opportunities and a diverse student group. However, it warrants large class sizes. Many extracurricular activities are available and there are may resources provided to students. Overall, I've really enjoyed my experience thus far.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

FSU was my dream college in high school. I did everything I could to get in. The campus is beautiful, with three libraries, an entire building dedicated as a space for tutoring and academic help, three on-campus dining locations, and spacious buildings. Some classrooms are still kind of old, but I personally like that about this college. There are two gyms on campus, one of which has a 1/8th mile track, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a steam room, tons of gym equipment and machines for weight training, treadmills/ellipticals, and different rooms for scheduled classes like cycling and yoga. Campus is full of opportunities for students looking for jobs, extra-curricular activities, sports, and internships. The teachers and advisors are helpful and willing to work with you, at least in my experience. Getting to know your professors can open new doors for you. There's also a career center that can help you with planning for future jobs and internships. When it comes to social life at FSU, in Fall, it’s all about football. Campus treats Saturday home games like a holiday – people don’t work, the libraries are closed, and the gyms are closed. It can be inconvenient for some, but definitely has its perks for those interested in making a day out of the game. But even if football’s not your thing, there are plenty of campus clubs and organizations that meet on Saturdays so you can have something to do and somewhere to be. Dorm life is comfortable at FSU -- at least in my experience. My roommates have never been an issue. Either I’ve just been lucky with the guys I’ve been roomed with, but nobody seems like someone unreasonable or truly crazy. I also worked nights in dorm halls, so I think I have a good rundown of how most students feel about their time in them. The dorm halls are generally well-kept and I never had to take care of dangerous activity while working night staff. The only thing that could bother someone would be the noise level. In upperclassmen dorms, it’s much quieter than in freshman and sophomore dorms. With the new dose of independence, those kids really like to try everything, but it’s still a fairly tame environment. My classes at FSU have never been a walk in the park, but they’re not impossible. The instructors are willing to work with you (within reason), tutoring and help resources are readily available, and every instructor is required to give office hours if their class isn’t online. The materials I’ve been presented with for courses have never been totally unaffordable, but that depends a ton on your major. If you’re a STEM major, definitely shop wisely for your books or look online for PDFs, used copies, and even older editions. As an English major, I never really had that worry, because most of the materials I had to buy were novels I could rent from the school store or buy used online or at a local shop for just $2-$5. No teacher has ever required me to get something truly unaffordable or ridiculous. But that’s just me. Overall, FSU is a fantastic college. It delivers an experience that most students will probably enjoy and feel prepared with once they graduate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Florida State has a beautiful campus and there are always clubs and activities to help you get involved on campus. We are HUGE on sports here, especially football, so during the season it is always about the game. The campus is really safe and there are plenty resources to help make sure you get where you're going safely. Tallahassee is a pretty big college town so a lot of places are set up for a college night life. If you're into that, Florida State might be a good choice for you. I love Florida State and all the academic opportunities it has to offer. It is a great school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Florida State University is a great school especially for specific programs. From what I heard Florida State University gives out many opportunities to students academically. There is a lot of diversity and many foreign-exchange students from all over the world. Their campus is big and pretty neat. There are a lot of parties, but what college doesn't have parties? They also offer great sporting programs for athletes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Everyone on Florida State's campus is absolutely helpful. From the RA's to the kitchen staff, they're all very helpful and very nice people. Due to the campus being huge, it can seem easy to get lost or even at times unsafe. Honestly, find someone and they will always be willing to help. While it may seem like Greek life is a must, there are over 700 different clubs to join, so not getting in is not the worst thing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Florida State has given me the best summer C term ever. I fell in love with this university and I am very excited for next four years. I made amazing friends and got involved like modeling. I never thought I could have such a great family with care. Their support is amazing and I would not want it any other way.
