Osceola Village and West Ten – Probably two of the best off campus houing options. Osceola is right off campus and West Ten is a very nice, rich looking place too. There are other places off campus that are okay but some that you want to stay away from, these places include Frenchtown apartments or the like .

There is no wireless networks in most dorms but the Ethernet cables provide very fast internet. You can get wireless internet in many classrooms and on Landis. I have not been the most successful on Landis Green but some people are. The computers in the libraries are pretty new since the first floor was newly redecorated. It can get pretty busy but there are usually computers open at any time. If not on the first floor then on the floors above. Printers work really well and only cost 8 cents per sheet. It is very nice and convenient having your own printer and computer because it's cheaper in the long run. Plus having your own computer means you can take notes in classes that you would prefer to do so.

Not Too Bad – The only thing I have ever seen the school be strict on is parking tickets, thats all I have been exposed to.

Always Something to Do! There are always house parties, always something cool at the clubs, the people are always ready to have fun, and always lots of fun.

The apartment style halls at Florida State are decent. You do pay a premium for living on campus and parking spots aren't guaranteed but I always feel safe. It's fun to be on campus when there are football games!

Personally, Its Been Worse Than Expected – I chose this school over an ivy league because i assumed it would be cheaper for my undergrad. However thanks to their IDIOTIC housing system I am out almost the same amount I would be if I had gone to my top choice. To be told that you don't have housing two months before school starts after thinking you had it for months is devastating. My advice would be to do everything extremely early and if you need help from financial aid go in. Mornings are best, there's barely a line.

Guys & Girls:
Modernized Mind Games – The romantic aspects of the student body are the one thing I am not proud of when it comes to my campus. I sometimes feel like alot of the guys who come to this school are only here to "get laid". This image has much to deal with the role models our generation has been given, but its quite unnerving for those of us who are looking for a serious relationship. Alot of the girls just feed their thirst. THey really should gain a little bit more respect for themselves. Just because your popular or a sorority girl does not mean you have to be a slut.

A New World Within the Old One – Though it holds many traditions, FSU is always fighting to stay modern. The amount of diversity on campus great;y surprised me when I first arrived. The social customs and prejudices that poison the rest of the world are at a minimal here. There is of course the normal school aspects, but I find myself friends with people I never even looked at before, and the atmosphere of the school is what made that happen. Be it my on campus job, the clubs i join, or the campus activities, I never find it tough to make friends here. Which can be a weight off your shoulders when you've always been considered different and an outcast.

I haven't had any problems with the financial aid process. I submitted the documentation that I needed when I received my Florida Bright Futures Scholarship and also Florida Prepaid, and I was good to go.

I haven't had any personal run-ins with the FSU Police Department, but I always see them cruising around at night making sure everything is safe on campus.

Drug Scene – There is some drug use on Florida State's campus, but I don't put myself around people who use them.

The bus system at FSU is great!!! You can virtually get anywhere at anytime. They are on campus and off campus. Also, the airport is very close and plane tickets are cheap.

Greek Life at FSU provides coutless opportunities to do community service and meet new people. Everyone is excited to help out around the community. I believe Greeks and Non-greeks get allong very well! Also, the housing is great heritage grove is a community of frat houses and its perfect for attending parties.

Fan Support – I find that FSU has the best fan support for all sports that they participate in. It is so nice to be amongst a group of students that respect and enjoy our college and our team so much! We are there with them through thick and thin and we all have so much faith in our teams!

The Meteorology program is great. The only thing negative is the inconsistencies of he faculty of what/how the subjects are being taught.

Good Scholarship Opportunities – There are numerous scholarships available if you look for them, and often the teachers announce scholarship opportunities in class. The financial aid process is easy as long as you don't mind opening up a Suntrust account - all financial aid is deposited there, otherwise a check is mailed to you.

Health & Safety:
Good Security Measures – The pathways are well-lit, and every few feet there is a safety emergency pole in case you need assistance. They send out FSU Alerts any time there is a need for students to know of emergency situations. However, I would not advise going out late at night because despite all these measures there are people who might mess with you as emails have proven. Just use common sense and you should be safe.

To get financial aid from the school work really hard in high school so FSU will offer you money to attend the university. I haven't reieved too much financial aid. Most of what I've gotten has been through the state and individual scholarships I have one. Look for very specific scholarships pertaining to your religion, extracurricular activites, major and interests.

In Tallahasse it is hard to find a good apartment for a good price. I plan on living on campus for my first three years. Finding a parking space on campus when trying to reach a class on time is very hard to do. Most people leave their house or apartment and hour or so before class starts so they have time to drive all over campus in search of a parking space. As the year progresses parking becomes easier to find as the upper classmen decide to not attend class.

At Florida State University, there are numerous computers at the library and if you need help with tech problems while doing a project there are computer labs all over school. Durring exam week I would advise avoiding them though because they get a little crazy. For the most part computers are easily accessed.

Campus Life – Living on campus at Florida State University is something I prefer. I am within walking distance from everything; food, class, the health center, gyms and local hangout centers. It's much better than driving to school and hour before class to find a parking space. I like the community style dorms because you are able to meet more people in your dorm. Some of the dorms aren't prefered but usually there is always one that you are thankful you aren't in.
