Safe If You're Smart – The campus security does an excellent job - but i wouldn't go anywhere without people at night - even to the library.

Buses and More Buses. The Nole buses at FSU are completely free and take you all around campus and off campus to the local student apartments. Buses are running all the time and at convenient times. Its a very organized bus system for students to use. The city bus system is also free for FSU students and takes you anywhere that the Nole bus syetem doesn't. Only bad part is that the city bus system sometimes passes by once every hour at most locations.

The Strip! Nightlife at FSU is more for the 21 and above crowd. We have an area referred to as "the strip" where are the major clubs and bars are at. Its actually located right across from campus. A convenient location but house parties are much better. You don't have to pay or wait in long lines. There is the Night Nole bus system that takes you back home from the clubs and its free for all FSU students. For those not 21 or above, we have the Student life center on campus. Movies are shown all week long at the SLC, starting around 7:00 pm. There is also the local cafes and hookah bars nearby.

For All Accounting Majors!! The college of Business at Florida State offers many helpful opportunities for accounting students. Classes are fairly average and from time to time, we have guest speakers from Accounting firms who share their experiences and provide helpful tips. The Beta Alpha Psi is an honors accounting/finance society that offers many job and internship opportunities with the Big 4 accounting firms. They are extremely resourceful and will help build your accounting career.

Off Campus Food – Tennessee street is adjacent to the campus and is full of restaurants.Place to chose from can range from Subways, Donut Kingdom, Mr.Roboto, The Pita Pit and more. There is enough variety of food for anyone to chose from.

School Life – I love FSU. Its amazing they have tons of activities movies etc. I love the campus life. There is always something to do! :) Football season it gets crazy fun with activities and more!

Above the Influence – The school provides many people and organizations on campus to get involved with no smoking and drugs and peer pressure. Abortion talks etc. But they keep you informed and aware.

Fl, the Sunshine State. This is Florida!! who wouldn't want to spend the best years of their life in the sunshiny rays and warmth of FL? Sure, the summers are hot as hell and there is no beach in Tallahassee, but I rather be in Florida than any other state! the only thing that could affect campus experience if if you choose to walk really far to class on a 100+ degree day... my advice, be careful of heat exhaustion. Drink lots of water and enjoy!

Drinking and Smoking but Drinking Trumps. I wouldn't say that there is big drug scene at FSU... most college kids stick to drinking heavily and the occasional marijuana use. It all depends on what kind of people your around.

Great Late Night... OK Lunch. There is a ton of great places in Tallahassee to eat- thats for sure. The dinning at FSU is better than a lot of schools but lacks variety... The Diner is great though! I wouldn't recommend getting a meal plan though because there are so many other great/cheap places to eat nearby.

I really like the number of routes, how often the buses come around, and the student taxi - anywhere for a flat rate.
My only minus is the off-campus buses; they don't lead to many amenities, but they do lead to enough (i.e., grocery shopping, haircuts).

Compared to Other Towns, Not So Bad in Price – Virtually everyone lives off-campus after freshman dorm life. It is not difficult to find one, but the nice ones tend to be further away from campus. Thankfully there is a reliable bus system.

Repetitive, Slightly Overpriced, but Convenient. Einstein's, Salad Creations, Chili's, Miso, Papa John's, a smoothie place, Pollo Tropical, Fresh Foods, the Suwannee Room (buffet), More than three Starbucks, one of which is 24 hours/5 days a week
Not very diverse selection, not so kind on the wallet. The 24/5 Starbucks paired with the 24/5 library is a great pairing though. A huge meal plan would be wasteful near the end of the year, but it works well for freshman living on campus.

Health & Safety:
FSU is located in the capital of Tallahassee, FL. The areas on campus are relatively safe during the day, but I would be more cautious at night. FSU does have on campus police and emergency towers visible from ever point on campus. Emergency towers allow for students to press a red button which immediate contacts the on campus police department. Off campus however there are a large amount of low income housing mixed in with college houses, which leads to a larger number of house robberies than expected

School Life – Very nice and student friendly campus. Has a wide variety of programs and majors. Lots of student organizations and activites. The admissions process is very easy and comprehensable.

Housing is very limited but other options are readily available.

Okay....there are 40,000 students who go to our school. Yet, there are only 4,000 parking spaces available. Even less than that after it hits 12:00 AM. They do not give us much parking spaces, but they have no trouble in giving out parking tickets. This is coming from someone who has never received one. BEWARE!!!!!!

Great Places for Students Under 21 – You do not have to break the law to have an amazing night out. There is a theater on campus where they play a bunch of retro movies where everyone knows the lines, so it makes for a fun night if you need a break. There is even a club on campus where under 21 students are accepted. There are a lot of clubs off-campus where students can have a great time.
College Senior 2011-05-29T00:38:40Z
A Lot of Places to Get Help – Not only do you have the teachers available during their office hours, but you also have many students and staff available at Dirac Library and mostly Club Strozier Library where the atmosphere is very inviting and you never feel as if you should be ashamed becasue you need help.

The Usual – FSU helped me quite a bit with a freshman/sophomore grant, but the school is getting rid of it now. I do receive a full pell grant, but I feel they can do a lot more for me. I have taken out student loans, but you have to keep in check with the financial aid services. When I asked for a loan last semester they said yes, and that I would receive it within a week, but when I called a full week later they told me that there was never a record for a loan for me. I had to wait another week.

Florida = Winning...Duh!! This is Florida! There hasn't been a tough hurricane in a while, so otherwise the weather is very nice! If there is a storm, FSU sends a mass text warning its students.
College Senior 2011-05-28T06:34:05Z
OK Variety – At FSU you can see the major ethnicity is White. There is a large population of Hispanics and Blacks as well, then come Asians. Every now and then you will see middle eastern people.
There is a club/organization for anyone's sexual orientation, religious belief, or political beliefs. I think FSU does a good job accepting how students are.

FSU PD doesnt mess around when it comes to protecting our students and campus. They are very well training and value their jobs!

Guys & Girls:
Guys Are Diverse – There are many types of guys on campus. A lot of them are involved in Greek life and they are typical meat heads. There are a lot of smart guys and rednecks as well.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
