I am a Mechanical Engineering student and my program is no joke. It is difficult but doable, there are some helpful teachers and some unhelpful teachers but usually if you ask the right questions they try to answer. Workload is crazy, I am alive thanks to caffeine. Curriculum is busy and it makes sure you understand the material. Facilities could definitely be better, our library has been renovated and bigger classrooms opened but some parts of the college definitely need renovations and upgrades. Graduates have found jobs in 2-3 months of looking for them. Internships are common.

It is bad. Transportation services are trying to improve it but it will continue to be bad since everyone has a car. Bus services are unreliable so while a car is not a must it definitely saves time and frustration. Permits are free for 1 vehicle. Ticketing is mostly strict but read the rules before and don't get into trouble. Parking is alright if you decide to park farther and walk more.

Wireless not always dependable. I own a computer and not a printer, I could have done without a computer but it would be a hassle depending on busy times of the year. Generally you'll always find a spot within 5 minutes of waiting though.

Coming from a pretty small town, Tallahassee came with a bit of culture shock for me. Tallahassee is huge, but everything any student could need is never more than a short walk away. My freshman year, I didn't even have a car and I got by just fine! If you are feeling like a nice swim, FSU's "Rez" is a short bus ride away, and the historic Wakulla Springs isn't too far either! Some of my best memories have been made soaking up the sun at Wakulla!

Around midday, of course, the library is packed with students trying to grab a computer, which can be frustrating sometimes. Regardless, if you make a few laps, you are bound to find someone just as they are leaving. It can be fun, I suppose. Something like a scavenger hunt?

The level of school spirit at FSU never fails to astound me! I am proud to call myself one of the seminole family!

Tallahassee is definitely a college town. I would not be living here if it weren't for FSU, but its definitely grown on me the longer I've been here. It is a little run down and not the prettiest, cleanest and lower income, but I still like it.

Greek life is very prevalent at FSU, you can't walk around campus without seeing a greek shirt being worn. It can be nice, but also not so nice. It just depends on the situation really. I've notice that sorority girls can be really nice on their own, one on one, but if there is a group of them, sometimes they're not as kind. Some frat guys are really nice, and some jerks. But they're everywhere so you get used to the members and the sororities and fraternities.

Health & Safety:
I feel completely safe walking around campus during the day time, and if I'm walking alone at night, I just try to be more aware of my surroundings, I'm not very scared, just more alert. There are emergency blue light stations almost everywhere on campus that connect you directly to the police if you need help which is nice. Health wise, there's always a back to school cold that gets passed around, which is to be expected of such a large university. FSU just built a new health center and its beautiful, and relatively convenient to use.

I received an adequate amount of financial aid. With Bright Futures and Florida Prepaid I was able to pay for my tuition and most of my books. But, it would be helpful to have some more money for books and to possibly help with living expenses. Also, being able to save up money for graduate school is a huge priority.

Campus life at Florida State is one of a kind. There is always something fun going on. Especially at the Union, there is market wednesday where a bunch of vendors come out, along with all of the clubs. There is also always something going on at Landis Green. Last Friday the weather was beautiful so everyone was laying out in the sun, flying kites, and playing soccer. There is never a dull moment.

I am a transfer student to Florida State University. So far I have been extremely impressed with everything the school has offered to me. The Psychology program in particular has opened up a great deal of learning opportunities to really get involved in the program. With in the program, there is a lot of room for undergraduate students to take part in research. This is awesome! The opportunities at Florida State are top notch and are definitely preparing me for grad school.

There are good and bad dorms. By bad I mean small bedrooms, but community style bathrooms are always clean. There's a kitchen on every floor of every building. We have quiet hours from 9am-9pm and we have night staff to make sure the place is safe. I personally like suite style better because its clean everywhere and the bedrooms are spacious. Only thing about suite styled rooms is it cost more.

We have the top ranked football team. We won Orange bowl 2013. There is a boosters club that donates the money towards the football team and the students who join it gets an automatic ticket for the game. The people who shows the most spirit gets free stuff. We have the garnet and gold boys, who randomly paint themselves from hair-to-toe. Literally, their t=hair is garnet or gold, and the paint has glitter.

My major is Exercise Science, pre-med route.A lot of people have the same major as me. Starting sophomore year you start to see some of the same people in your classes, and that's how you get to know people. The teachers in this major knows their stuff. They get very enthusiastic about teaching. With this major I have a high chance of getting a job when I graduate. The first two years are filled with pre-req, which test to see how dedicated you are to your major. After that the classes get smaller and more personal. The professors write great recommendation letters.
College Junior 2013-10-03T01:07:08Z
Some teachers aren't able to understand but majority of the teachers are great and there for you. When you come to school and talk to others they will tell you who to take and who to avoid. There are a great variety of classes. Majority of the people I've met are science majors. There are packets for certain classes to help tutor you, with a code to access online videos to explain problems.

I am a BA Theatre major. To get into the program, incoming students must fill out an application and write a short essay explaining why they should be accepted. Most majors at FSU don't require an application process. Students interested in a BFA degree usually must audition and interview.

The main street is Tennessee street and it has countless eating places on that street. Its walking distance from school. Some restaurants offer student discounts certain days of the week. If you are part of Booster's or SAA you get a discount at certain dining places. There is definitely a variety. Different ethnic foods, fast food restaurants and dine in restaurants.

Off- campus housing is awesome. I lived on campus for two years and now living off campus I have my own bathroom and bedroom, mainly my personal space is what I value. I was able to choose who I wanted to room with. Different apartments up here have 1 bedroom, 2 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms, and 4 bedrooms. Each room has a bathroom. If you want to live by yourself or just one other person you have the options. Housing ranges from $250-$800/ month. The farther you are from campus, the cheaper the housing. There are plenty of gated communities that have security guards driving around. FSU school buses drive around Tallahassee to pick up/ drop off students near their apartment every 20 minutes Monday- Friday. If you don't have a car then you have to depend on the city bus on the weekends.

The fact that the school is in the state's capital sets it apart from majority of the schools in Florida. If you're interested in Law or anything similar to that, you are in the right place. There are so many lawyers here. Different opportunities to see what its like to be one, if you're interested. Outside of school there is really nothing here. Majority of Tallahassee looks old fashioned, but its a nice old fashion.
College Junior 2013-10-01T00:58:09Z
It is strict to the right amount. Its not too strict where students are intimidated by the school's faculty but they are strict enough to keep the campus and individuals safe. If someone got caught with weed the FSUPD will be notify and they will come soon to talk with that student.

Florida state has one of the best tuitions out there. Rated I believe second in best value. Tuition in state is ridiculously low and most people that I've talked to have bright futures scholarships which bring it down even more. I personally don't receive financial aid aside from bright futures and loans, but I know a few people that get good amounts of financial aid. There are also a bunch of scholarship programs out there, you just have to look hard.
College Sophomore 2013-09-30T19:49:15Z
Go off campus if you can. Tons of options: house or apartment, close or far, expensive or cheap, pool or no pool. Most of the nicer places are further away, but they have the best amenities. Either way, public transportation is great and stops by most complexes. If in a house there's tons of freedom, but less availability of public transportation and you have to pay for all of your utilities.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
