I am a graphic design student. At fsu the first 6 required courses don't really have that much to do with graphic design except for one class, but if you can suck it up for a year you can basically take any class you want. That means every computer class you can think of is available to you, which to me is pretty amazing considering my high school had like 1 class you could take each year. The workload for me was pretty stressful since I don't believe I have any sort of traditional art talent which is needed since you have to take a drawing class.

Hit the Strip! The clubs may not be the prettiest out there, but they are always exciting! The strip has multiple clubs lined up, a set up guaranteed to optimize anyone's party life!

Don't Travel Far – Way too many scummy businesses try to pry college students of their livelihood.. and money. If it wasn't for all of the students banding together to rid the communities of the terrible tow trucks and money-grubbing landlords, Tallahassee would be in trouble

Don't Go Far – Tallahassee provides an excellent student-rich atmosphere surrounding the Florida State University campus. Clubs, shopping centers, and restaurants are all close by so you never really have to travel far to get to where you need to go. Plus, it creates more of an old-fashioned community feel to the town... everything is run by the students. There is even a complex called Indian Village where half the school congregates during football game days!

Very, Very Incessant and Overrated! All the non-Greek students for the most part share in a communal dislike of the organization. Only the wealthier students are able to join the fraternities/sororities because of the extensive dues that have to be paid. Most students don't have that kind of extra money. Another thing which is annoying on a day to day basis is amount of advertisement that the Greek organizations propagate. Members wearing shirts daily, large billboards, and free sunglasses with Greek-association information.

Paying My Own Meals Gets Expensive – There is of course, the campus dining hall, which has the most fabulous array of food. If I were to eat on campus, I would most likely eat at the dining hall most days. They have coffee as well! There are a few franchise restaurants such as Chilis, Salad Creations and Papa Johns that serve faithfully. My favorite dining location is the 24/7 Denny's because it's convenient and cheap.

There are quite a few restaurants at the Union square on campus that make dinner easily accessible. It's a good way to get to know people in between classes, the only downside is that the average price for a meal is about 10$. Mr. Robotos, my favorite restaurant is about a mile from campus. It's quick asian food of remarkable quality and quick preparation. The few times I eat out, I prefer off campus locations because of their variety and oftentimes, cheaper meals.

Swanee dining isn't that bad, but I think they should make healthier options on campus. Chili's is okay...not very healthy. Flex bucks is convenient.

Guys & Girls:
Something for Everyone – The girls in Tallahassee come in all backgrounds. With Florida being the cultural melting pot that it is and the international programs that Florida State offers there is much beauty to find.

Plentiful and Affordable – Finding apartments in Tallahassee is like shooting fish in a barrel. Walking a block in any direction from campus and you're bound to run into at least three or more and each containing signs offering students various bedroom options that are available for leasing. But because there are so much a good renter must be able to spend some time, about a day or two...or three, and sitting down with the leasing managers in each apartment they are interested in because not all apartments are made equal. Prices, room build, roommate compositions, and the general location can all vary. But overall if you take the time renters will find their dream apartment somewhere in Tallahassee for around $340-$600 and for a college student living off part time work and loans how can you beat those prices.

FSU students are very active and always participating in social and academic things. The academic programs are ranked high in the nation, for example psychology. The facilities have historical values and are easy to find once you have your bearings. A unique opportunity is the easiness of being able to study abroad.
College Junior 2011-09-01T03:01:37Z
There are people of all different kinds and personalities at FSU. The majority of the students are middle-class white. There are other races present on campus though, and everyone is accepting..not ignorant. There are several churches on/near-by the campus.

Classes just started, but the curriculum is interesting, and student-friendly. The facilities are beautiful and easily accessible. The workload is not too heavy.

Busses are ok. They're free so that's good, but sometimes they are way too crowded to even be allowed on.

It's practically impossible to find a parking spot at FSU. Just absolutely ridiculous.

Dorm Life – Some of the greatest days ever were when I lived on campus. Everything is close, you have tons of friends around you 24/7, don't have to travel to school but verryy little privacy. If you live in a suite style you're fine but the others succkkk.

GO NOLES! School Spirit is huge around the FSU campus. While walking to class you can a huge portion of students supporting the noles! All of the facilities on or around campus are great as well.

The dining halls at FSU offer little variety and there are only a few places to eat other the halls.

The city of Tallahassee is always busy and buzzing with excitment and noise. You don't even have to leave campus to go out and have a fun night or a quite night at the moive theather. FSU offers great FREE activities for students. FREE is the key word to anything in a college students eyes!

The Academics is great. Professors are nice, registration is easy workload is fine and other study stuff is simple

Majority White – There is a decent amount of black people in tallahassee, but not too many at FSU. There arent too many other minorities either. White is dominant

Overall i'd say that if you can there's better food off campus that's not too far away, but for what it is, the food on campus is good and usually decently cheap.
College Senior 2011-08-25T18:53:43Z
The Leach is our gym and is very awesome, there's always classes and it's open almost all the time. Oglesby Union is the center of campus and people are always coming and going, it's really awesome because it houses lots of food, student organizations, study areas, and pottery as well as having market wednesday every week. There are two libraries, Dirac is quieter and houses mostly science material, and the other is the largest and is always full. There's always and activity somewhere on campus, and usually free food to go with it. Overall the campus is beautiful, parts are old and others new but it's all nice.

The city is very big and very busy. There are all sorts of things to do at Florida State University. There's the Reservation where you can go camping, tanning, swimming, canoeing, or enjoy the rock wall. On campus there's always events. Movies play every night at the Student Life Cinema, the library's great for studying and when you're bored you can go bowling. There's always a cultural event going on at the Globe. Off campus there's plenty of clubs and lounges for the nightlife, the capital is right here, and the food is phenomenal almost anywhere you go. There's always campus police around, though you should still be wary, that and with Safe Bus, and the emergency poles it's decently safe on campus, off campus it's better safe than sorry. There's shopping everywhere as well. Most students are nice, there's always people promoting a club, association, or activity going on.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
