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.

Go Noles! We are competitive in every sport and the school pride out here is amazing! Come out to a tailgate in the fall and you'll understand. On top of that IMs are pretty huge and there's a lot of competition.

Academia here at FSU has really taken a rise with the arrival of President Barron. Athletics have still prospered, but the air around campus is not one of anticipation of the sport seasons anymore, but one of panic of studying for exams! The quality of teaching here is also very good.

There are a variety of options for dining on the campus of FSU, but the reason this grade is not an A is because although there is variety, the same places are always there and become mundane after a few months. Not to mention it is extremely overpriced if you are like myself and live off campus, but for the students with meal plans and FSU's "ID as a Debit Card" idea, it is a very convenient and easy way to eat. The dining halls also offer a decent variety of foods for those in dorms, and are also open to off-campus diners.

This grade of F reflects what most people associate this with: failure. FSU delivers on the aspects of a good college experience, from social settings to academic settings, yet the prevalence of drinking and marijuana usage around and on campus is staggering. Underage or of age, the amount of usage here in Tallahassee is overwhelming.

I haven't had an internship yet but I plan on finding one for next summer because It'll really look good on my resume and it'll make me more professional and prepared for my future.
College Freshman 2013-09-28T20:05:56Z
I enjoy being in my specific major because it allows me to meet many people and it helps me develop my social skills and how to be a better communicator and orator which is also useful in other areas such as interviews, etc. From the start, you have to be looking to internships because that is the only way you will gain experience and find a job once you graduate from college

Greek Life is really involved on campus. They do many social events, philanthropy and community service. I myself would like to join greek life in the future because at times I feel like I'm missing out. You make a lot of close friendships in Greek life. There are parties outside of Greek life but they aren't the same, they aren't as fun. Obviously, only women and brothers of the fraternities are allowed into the Greek life parties, everyone else has to resort to house parties and other social events.
College Freshman 2013-09-28T20:01:53Z
I am very happy with my major. As nerve racking as it was I would definitely do it all over again. My career goals are to get a Bachelor's Degree and to continue on for my Master's. In between all of this I want to do various summer internships to gain experience for when I'm looking for a job. It's a competitive field so It helps to have connections and to have experience. This major is all about the people you know and who knows you and making yourself unique from the competition.

The process of getting into my Advertising major was somewhat difficult. It was very competitive as many people apply to the program but only 1/3 of the applicants get in. I had to do an application with a mentor and submit a portfolio of work demonstrating the experience I had in Advertising. I had to maintain at least a 3.8 GPA to have any chance of getting into the program.

All of the services are free for students, busses go everywhere on campus and even go to the off campus apartments and even the grocery store. They have a late night service that can pick you up if you happen to be off campus or in a creepy area and don't feel safe enough to walk home.

There wasn't anything special in becoming a Psychology major, other than stating that's what you wanted to do. It would be good to have a background in some basic psychology, like AP Psych from high school, just because many of the courses assume you already know the basis. No crazy applications are required, you just pick it from a list when you apply to the school, or go see the academic advisors.
College Sophomore 2013-09-27T22:15:59Z
The academic advisors vary for majors, but the ones I've had experience with in the Psychology department are both helpful and not. They let you know exactly the classes you need to take, but won't go much beyond that. As far as being a psychology major goes, they have plenty of internship opportunities, but I haven't had time to look into them yet.

Health & Safety:
Safety is relative at FSU. On the campus itself, you've got hardly anything to worry about. There are people out almost everywhere all hours of the night, and emergency poles very frequently. However, the college housing has extended beyond FSU and into the "ghetto" known as Frenchtown, and into Jackson Bluff which is known for its crime. Things get stolen, broken, vandalized and abused immediately off campus extremely frequently. But directly ON campus, the safety rises drastically.

It is a common joke between students/professors/administration that FSU is a party school filled with diagnosable alcoholics. Drug use is, surprisingly, very strictly punished if caught. However, the problem with this is that nobody looks for these things. Police rarely patrol anywhere outside of the scarce roads on campus. But still, if you are caught with drug use on campus, you will be punished. My own friend from highschool got immediately expelled for drug use on campus. The alcohol use, however, goes almost totally ignored despite how obvious it is. No one pays attention, the cops don't pick up drunk people or even talk to them, and students openly stumble throughout campus with no repercussions.
College Sophomore 2013-09-26T16:45:54Z
The substance abuse scene at the Florida State University is pathetically open and obvious. The "hipster/hippie" community on campus is very large, and smoking cannabis is common on and around campus. There are few roads within campus, but the Police only patrol these roads, so anywhere between the roads/behind dorms/inside dorms is extremely common. I cannot walk through the Union without smelling weed. Other drugs are much less common and I have had little exposure to these. Alcohol, on the other hand, is massively popular and obvious. I have sat next to students in class before noon who smelled of alcohol. The Greek life on campus is obnoxious and prevalent, seemingly perpetually drunk. The "strip" that is most popular for students to party is directly across the street from campus, so intoxicated students stumbling through/around campus is also very common.

The athletics at Boynton Beach high school includes support from students and staff. Cheerleaders are also out there on the field during football games to support their team. Everyone shows their school spirit by chanting the theme for our mascot-the tigers. I believe our football team is unbeatable and is capable of winning every game with the help and support from our school. We are the same for every sport including tennis, volleyball, basketball, baseball, and swimming. We have some pretty well-performed sports at our school. Most of them are also unbeatable or have rarely lost a game.

Off-Campus housing at FSU is pretty nice. There are plenty of apartments nearby that are spacious and all for a pretty good price. There are some minor problems here and there but nothing more out of the ordinary that comes from apartment life. Off-campus housing is definitely way better than the dorms on campus, and a lot cheaper too.
College Senior 2013-09-18T01:22:08Z
There seems to be a diverse population and acceptance amoung them
College Senior 2013-09-18T01:19:38Z
There are few clubs that are unique enough to peak my interest. I am more interested in getting my education and degree.
College Junior 2013-09-17T21:35:23Z
Here at FSU we have a relatively diverse campus yet there is still a dominance found in the upper middle class whites.
College Junior 2013-09-17T21:34:01Z
The only internship I've ever had was most useful in resume building, the work itself was rarely intellectually stimulating or useful.
College Freshman 2013-09-17T17:47:08Z
Events are always going on on campus for students under 21. There are a few options off campus too, for both 18+ and 21+. There are a few house parties and other venues where local bands play, and for the most part it's under $5 for admission. FSU even has their own venue, Club Downunder, which has weekly concerts and is free for students with their student ID.
College Sophomore 2013-09-15T16:25:03Z
The academics at FSU are top notch and very prestigious.

There is very little peer pressure, yet the drug usage is still fairly apparent.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
