Always Around – Although I don't use the buses myself, I know people who do and haven't heard anything really negative from them. The buses are generally on time, although they can get packed at times.

Only If You Want to – Yes, there is a drug scene on campus, as with every college. But it's really not that bad. It's the kind of thing where if you want to get involved, you can, but people aren't coming up to you offering you drugs. Drinking is much, much more prevalent and popular.

Helpful for Freshmen – I'm a freshman with an intended major of criminology. The Criminology department has advised me on what to take to help achieve my goals, and they have been very helpful and welcoming in general.

i really do like the computers at FSU. The are quick and reliable. I have been known to take advantage of the computers to do homework and catch up on some readying. The best thing is that there are so many of them that you can always find a spare computer if you need one.

aside from the parking and long walks, i love my university. Classes, sports, greek life, everything.

It Sucks – you have to drive around millions of times before you find any parking, even then it's very far from where you need to be

Community College – Many different people attend school here. You would see the same people in the grocery store or anywhere else.

EXPERIENCE IT ALL – I like Tallahassee weather because you get to experience a hot summer AND a cold winter. Every summer when I return to Tallahassee I forget how hot it is, but as October gets closer, it starts becoming cooler and cooler.
I really enjoy bundling up in the Winter time in Tallahassee. Although it doesn't snow, I feel that I am experiencing a chilly winter.
It tends to rain a lot in Tallahassee even in the middle of a sunny day. The rain gets a little annoying in the middle of the year because the campus tends to flood a lot in certain areas. Rain boots are a must if you are going to attend Florida State or any college in Tallahassee. Sometimes it is extremely hard to get to your classes on time because of severe thunderstorms. Sometimes classes aren't canceled during these times, which is a bit frustrating.

I am not a student athlete so I personally don't really know how the school facilitates the athletes. In terms of school sports and support from students, I feel that it is very enthusiastic.
I am currently playing an intramural sport (flag football) I feel as thou IM sports are becoming more popular, maybe because I've become more involved. Many fraternities and sororities, apartment complexes, and groups of friends are involved in IM sports. They allow students to play a sport that they love, feel part of a team, and support one another.

Tallahassee is a very unique city, mostly catered to college students. There are many fun activities for students to participate in and become involved in the community. There is a homeless shelter right across the street from campus, although many students and parents are uneasy about it, I feel that it allows students to have opportunities to help the local community bu volunteering there.
Sports, especially Football is very popular in Tallahassee. Parents, alumni, and current students come from all around to come watch the Florida State games.
Because Tallahassee has 3 colleges in close proximity, there is a large amount of college students. I feel that the local attitudes toward students is a positive one.

Great Experience – Being in tallahassee is a great experience, not a great place to settle down

Not Bad – The weather is usually pretty stable, just really hot. Because of the hills, when it does rain the city flood quickly. The drainage system is very quick in drying up the roads, once the rain slows.

Very Effective – Have the campus buses that run every 15 mins, the city buses are free for FSU students with a college id

I have gone to several different schools for visits, and Florida State had by far the best dining options. There are two dining halls located on campus, which offer a very wide variety of foods, all fresh and delicious. Being a vegetarian I thought it would be very hard to find food that I would be able to eat, but not at FSU! There are specific counters in each dining hall that offer vegetarian and vegan food, which I found absolutley amazing, they sold me at that! The food is always delicious and is never greasy or overly fried, I eat there twice a day, and I love it!

I Love It – Joining the greek life at my school was the best decision I made. I joined as a sophomore and can definetely say it has made me appreciate my school way more. Whenever the school is hosting an event of any sort the first organization they turn to is Greek life. Therefore, you know everything that is going on in school and have a foot in the door in basically anything you want to join. I love it!

Perfect College Town – Although Tallahassee is the capital, so there is a lot going on. It is also the perfect college town. The spirit of the city is undeniable when it comes to supporting the school-- whether it be in community service, sporting events, or academics. It is also such a great college experience to be in a town where the majority of the people you are around are also students or somehow related to the school.

Too Many Cops – Apparently there are mor police per capita in Tallahassee, Fl than any other city in Florida. This includes cities like Miami and Orlando. That fact alone leads to high arrest rates for drunk drivers and just drunk people in general. If you go to a bar here make sure you don't drive even if you only had 1 beer.

Leech Center – One of the best gyms I have ever been too. Top of the line athletic equipment, full track, and hot tubs.

Strozier Library – The computers at the main campus library are top of the line. As for the rest of campus, well some computers are pretty trash. Saw some 386s the other day.

The dorms aren't bad, but they are extremely expensive, costing more than a lot of the apartments around campus.
Recent Alumnus 2010-09-11T02:28:41Z
Proximity Is Good, Parking Is Terrible – There are plenty of decent apartments/houses around the campus, but the parking can be a nightmare. Some places charge up to $100 for a parking decal and the tow companies are like vultures. Besides all that, off-campus housing is pretty nice.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
