Taxis are cheap, especially since everything is within a five mile radius. On-campus bus is normally on time and free to students since it is included in our tuition. Public buses are also free to students, all you need to do is show your college ID

Not Too Shabby – The nightlife in the student ghetto of Tallahassee is not bad, I mean there is a good amount of places to club at, the only thing is that those places aren't that large, especially compared to the clubs from where I come from, which is Miami Beach. Other than that, the prices are so cheap and they are always having specials!

I Am a Distance Learner – I am a distance learner and I take online classes, so I am unable to say how diverse the campus is.

Do Not Know – I am a distance learner and attend class via the Internet. I live in my hometown.

Health & Safety:
Apparently Safe – I am a distance learner so I cannot know for sure about the safety of FSU's campus. Nonetheless, the university does send out text message and email emergency notices when there is a perceived danger.

Personally I'm from New York City, and the weather in Tallahassee is just perfect. It is cool (60-70) for the majority of the year, and in the winter it only drops down to the forties at the most. The summer is nice and warm and there are always people out tanning when the sun is out.

Guys & Girls:
Girls Are HOT! First time I walked on the Florida State Campus as a high school senior, I thought I was on a model shoot. Everywhere you walk there are beautiful women. The best part of the year is obviously sorority rush when you see all the beautiful girls walking around in their best dress. If you go out to the strip or any of the clubs you can find a very large collection of drop dead gorgeous women

Everything at Florida State's campus is just beautiful. Every day you walk around campus and could not be happier with everything around you. Everyone is kind and willing to help you, including other students. The gym has everything you could ask for (but could get crowded at times), the libraries are being renovated and look great and are as full functioning as you could ever ask for. The social life is the best in the country, and if you deny it, just spend a weekend here at FSU. There is nothing like Florida State University, nothing like it in the whole world.

A Must Do! Greek Life is essential at FSU, the leaders on campus in student government and other organizations are mostly also greek. There is so much to do being part of greek life and there are also a few bars that are mostly populated by greek life. all of the sororities have houses on campus as well as a few fraternities, while the others reside in a big apartment complex designated for them off-campus. The great part is that you also dont necessarily have to be greek to take part in a lot of the perks- non-Greek girls are still welcome at frat parties and non-Greeks can still participate in the philanthropies as well.

I feel like Florida State is great as far as diversity goes- I think most people feel welcome regardless of their race or culture. I am pleased to see the various clubs celebrating diversity in the courtyard every Wednesday.
My biggest issue is the way women are viewed on this campus in particular. It seems less balanced than most places I have been in the past. Not that women are treated unfairly, the male vs female interactions just seem less 21st century and more 1950's.

Good Variety, Bad Hours – I found the variety to be appealing- from smoothie shops to Chili's to an Einstein bagels. My biggest issue would be the closing times. I would often get dismissed from my last class and find myself disappointed that most shops close down around 4 p.m.

Guys at FSU are either into tight cut off jean shorts or fraternities and parties.

Fresh Food Company – The food at FFC was so-so. Every blue moon, something actually good would show up. Several stations remain throughout the semester: omelets, pizza, salad, and the waffle maker.

Directed Individual Study – At Florida State, students can request to work under a professor and gaining experience in research. These opportunities are great to have for graduate school resumes and experience. They are available in many different colleges within the university. It's especially helpful in the sciences such as biology, chemistry, and physics.

There are computer labs in the libraries and some of separate colleges such as Biological Sciences or the College of Psychology. The internet through the campus computers has always been fast. Our WIFI is relatively good, but in some classrooms, it's difficult to get a signal.

They just remodeled our major library and it has some very advanced technology made available for student use. Our Student Life Center includes our own movie theater which is free for students. They show a variety of movies to cater to any movie lover. Our student union is used for "Market Wednesdays" where vendors sell various items, (i.e posters, flags, jewelry) and also some of the greek life set up tables for possible recruits. Other than that day, the union is only popular because of our on-campus Chili's and Einstein Bros. Bagels.

Tourist Town – Panama City is a small town, but its starting to gain more attractions besides the beautiful white beaches. Pier Park is the best place for shopping and Wonder Works is the most entertaining place to be when its raining.

The Ras Are Worse Than the Police – If you live on campus, the RAs are allowed to do unannounced room checks and if they find anything that is not allowed, they take it, send you a letter, make you attend a class on being a good resident, and send a note home. Even if it is just a previously burnt candle or a poster with any kind of alcohol paraphernalia. If you live off-campus, the police are pretty lenient unless things are getting out of control. If you keep everyone inside during a party and don't let anyone out of the house with a red solo cup, you're golden.

Don't Get a Meal Plan If You Can Avoid It – The dining halls, while having pretty good food, are such a pain to get to that the walk there would burn off more calories than the food you eat once you're there. Plus the meal plans are very expensive and contrary to your parents' beliefs, you won't end up eating there for every meal. The only problem with this is if you don't have a car to go to the grocery store. If that's the case, you kind of have to go to the dining halls.

Health & Safety:
Just Be Smart – Tallahassee is a very urban city and as such comes with areas that are safe and others that are unsafe. On campus you can usually count on patrolling officers to be close at hand, as well as emergency phones every few yards. However at night you just shouldn't walk anywhere alone, we do have armed robberies even on campus and the victims are usually alone at night.

You Are Taken Care of – I came in as a Freshman with no car and was pretty worried about how I could survive especially when I opted out of a meal plan. Florida State makes it very easy not just to get around campus, which can be tiring to walk, but makes it easy to get all around Tallahassee. Bus fares are free with a student id.

Not Really an Issue – It does depend somewhat on who you hang out with but, drug use is not extremely active on campus. There aren't many students running around under the influence of drugs, it's typically alcohol use which is much much more conspicuous. The school does have rules and enforces them when necessary.
Recent Alumnus 2010-07-29T04:07:47Z
Learning for Real – I chose FSU because of its reputable Nursing program and gorgeous campus. Classes, big or small, are so amazing because the professors provide so many opportunities to put to practice what you hear in lecture. You don't just sit in class, take notes, and try to pass the exam. The professors actually want you to take something with you from their class and succeed.

The people at FSU are very nice and I enjoy walking around the beautiful campus. I will be proud to be a graduate of this university.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
