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.

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.

There seems to be a diverse population and acceptance amoung them

There are few clubs that are unique enough to peak my interest. I am more interested in getting my education and degree.

Here at FSU we have a relatively diverse campus yet there is still a dominance found in the upper middle class whites.

The only internship I've ever had was most useful in resume building, the work itself was rarely intellectually stimulating or useful.

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.

The academics at FSU are top notch and very prestigious.

There is very little peer pressure, yet the drug usage is still fairly apparent.
College Sophomore 2013-09-15T16:21:47Z
Although there are a few rough and dirty halls on campus, even the worst ones are still significantly better than the best ones at more other competing schools.

The Weather in Tallahassee is beautiful. True, there are some nasty days, with regards to rain, and storms, but overall, the weather is fantastic for the majority of the year. Couldn't ask for a more comfortable place.
College Sophomore 2013-09-15T16:18:43Z
There is always something to do every night of the week at FSU. Whether its house parties, bars, or clubs; its impossible to get bored.
College Sophomore 2013-09-14T21:31:08Z
There are tons of students from all around the world at FSU. They're all great to talk to if you're polite. They all have different stories and different views of the world.
College Sophomore 2013-09-14T21:29:22Z
Academics at FSU are fantastic in every field. All of the professors are very well versed in there subjects and they all have a passion about what they're teaching.

There are tons of garages on campus but the student spots are at the top of all of them. They also fill pretty fast so if you're not parked by 8:30am you won't be parking at all. We're also not allowed to back in in the garages despite the fact that our decals are on the FRONT windshield. They also don't warn you about the colors of the lines. One color is for faculty only and the other is for students. You don't know which is which until you get a ticket.
College Sophomore 2013-09-14T21:23:21Z
Its a fantastic university with great programs but the out of state cost is absolutely ridiculous. On top of that there aren't people in the offices that are really willing to help. Its the same run around of "there's nothing else we can do for you." But other then that its a really great place. The campus is lovely as is the city and there are tons of fun things to do.

Florida State University offers many organizations for any ethnicity, culture, religious belief or sexual orientation. We do not discriminate and always encourage everyone to express themselves in their own way, and will always be accepted for who they are.
College Junior 2013-09-12T20:49:51Z
Parking is always a problem with a lot of university. Since there are a lot of students as well as teachers, it is always hard to get a spot right away. Usually I have to wait and look around for about 30min to find a good parking spot.
College Junior 2013-09-12T20:48:35Z
Florida State University has a lot of campus pride. The Seminoles are always represented by the students, and we always cheer for our athletic centers, especially when it is football season.
College Junior 2013-09-12T20:46:46Z
Tallahassee is wonderful because you get the bright and sunshine weather as well as the nice and winter cool weather. It's the best of both worlds.

They have a lot of resources for financial aid and they offer different sites to find scholarships as well. But one aspect that I would change is offering scholarships for those who do not necessarily have financial aid through FAFSA, but regardless want scholarships to pay off college.
College Sophomore 2013-09-12T17:45:20Z
There are a lot of fast food restaurants and restaurant right next to campus. Favorites are Jimmy Johns, Chickfila and Chiptole.
College Sophomore 2013-09-12T17:44:11Z
There are a lot of options and a lot of price ranges, but you really need to know what you're looking for in order to get what you need. There are buses that go off campus and pick up students. That's the best part even though you have to plan ahead to get to the bus on time.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
