The elementary ed program is extremely rigorous! I am currently taking 5 classes and each one assumes it is the only class taken. Mounds of reading and journaling about what was read so the instructor knows you actually read the material!

As a junior, I am expected to be more independent and assertive about my student observations as an elementary education major. The instructors at FSU do not walk you through finding the teacher or introduce you to them personally. They select a teacher in the county in which you live and introduce you to each other via email. From there it is your responsibility to dress professionally and go get it! It is your career that you are building and FSU expects you to earn it!

Lots of hoops for a non-traditional returning student! Not so many for high school students. Just don't forget that infernal foreign language requirement!

It is SOOO hot and humid during the summer! So you will most likely be hitting up the pool after class. It gets really cold during the winter and recently we were hit by a strong storm that included hail. But those storms are RARE, this is the first that it has ever occurred in my four years living here. So to wrap it up, Tallahassee actually experiences all four seasons, unlike the rest of Florida.

The College of Business provides a great selection of classes and almost all of the professors have amazing experience in their respective field. If I could do it all over again, I would have join the business fraternity my first semester of college.
For the short run, my main career goal is to have a full time job right after graduating, and I am in the process of interviewing for several. In the long run, I would love to work in the marketing department of a corporation or work for an international marketing agency.

They are are HUGE deal. Football season is one of the best seasons. There are tons of parades for the team and a lot of community events.
College Junior 2013-02-25T22:05:32Z
The restaurants are awesome! They are close to campus and delicious.
College Junior 2013-02-25T04:16:36Z
Always a lot of activities going on no matter what your interests .
College Junior 2013-02-25T04:10:40Z
I love the gyms on campus and the volleyball opportunities as well as the equestrian team. I grew up riding horses and participating in sports and love that I can continue those activities during my time at FSU.

Free campus bus service as well,as city bus for students, free movies, new engineering school which I appreciate since I am an engineering student.

The biology department has brand new facilities and student labs. I enjoyed the program. Some classes were more enjoyable then others and you are required to take some classes that may not match with the field you are hoping to go into. There is a lot of work involved. Some teachers are better at presenting and helping with the material than others. If you work hard and apply yourself you can work in professors labs.

It all depends on who you hang around with. Drinking was more popular and there was some peer pressure but there could be great consequences if you are caught in the dorm with illegal substances or drinking underage

There are many new buildings on campus that are great, but there are still some areas of campus that need to be updated. The university is working to build a modern campus. The new student health center is extremely nice and convenient and the science buildings are top of the line.
Recent Alumnus 2013-02-24T19:42:14Z
Beautiful campus, all the new science buildings are fantastic. The student government is working hard to make sure student activities and facilities are fun and pay for facilities to be open late during exam weeks and provide refreshments. Lots of organizations to join so you can find your place if you are willing to try. Always something interesting in the union.

There are many off campus dining options that are great! For example, Jimmy John's subs has available delivery until midnight. The cost is very convenient for students and there is a huge variety. All of the dining options are at a close walking distance from campus and the best places would definitely be...Mr. Robotos and Momo's Pizza!

Although I do not currently have an internship, I've heard that the internships with FSU are incredible. Many students travel abroad for their internships and come back saying that that was the best experience. FSU has a known study abroad program that is very popular. Although pricey, there are always scholarships available for students and it is definitely worth it! Also, side note, the best times for students to study abroad are during their first and second years of college as opposed to the third and fourth when there are more heavy concerns such as graduate school applications, graduation, etc.

For first year college students, it is a great experience to live in the dorms. As freshmen, it is an opportunity to meet new people and to potentially make life long friends. The halls are usually quiet during quiet hours but those rules are not followed all the times. As for convenience, living in the dorms is great because there are no worries for parking. For Freshmen, it is the best to live on campus to get a better feel and understanding of the campus.

Landis Green is a huge space in the heart of campus for students to relax and study and catch up on homework. Not only do many students study on Landis Green, many students bring their dogs for a nice walk and play frisbee. Students even tan at times! Landis Green is in front of two libraries at FSU that are incredible. Strozier Library provides printing services as well as a tutoring section. Strozier Library has five floors, all with plenty of tables and computers to use. Also, there is a Starbucks available 24/7 as long as Strozier is open. Social activities are also held at "Club Stroz" at times! Goldstein Library is also right next to Landis Green. Goldstein has a more quieter and studious reputation. Goldstein Library also has a couple study rooms with white boards for students to use.

There are many programs such as the CARE program that serve solely to help first generation students. Many recipients are first generation students and CARE knows that the college experience may be overwhelming. However, in CARE, there are printing services, networking opportunities, as well as tutoring and computer lab services.

The bus system is wonderful. They have an App for Apple and Android devices that will have a map of where all the buses are and their ETA's of when they will arrive at a bus stop. The only reason I give an A- is because some routes need an extra bus or two. Sometimes, the buses are very full and you will have to wait awhile for the same bus to come around with less people.
College Sophomore 2013-02-22T18:08:16Z
It's very hit or miss. Some days it is very good and provide many choices. Some days I ask what is going on in there heads. Efficiency is something the dining halls lack. Lines will be long and they will take there sweet old time.
I recommend Fresh Foods over Suwannee. FIGG is also a great option for lunch located in the stadium.
The Student Union also has SubWay, Freshens, Papa Johns, Chili's, Polo Tropical, and some others that are all good.

Health & Safety:
Many blue-lights around campus. Provide Safe Connection to take you where ever on campus during late hours when you don't feel safe walking. Police are present and are reasonable.

It can be better. Teachers are so huddled with doing there on research that their classes lack creativity and make learning fun. But i don't blame them FSU has a mandatory research policy to work at this school.

Public transportation is really good in tallahasse. Although, it does not run 24 hours like some, you can always have an available bus schedule. FSU has one of the most efficient bus system. They have this iPhone and blackberry app that allows you to track the travel of you desired bus to eliminate unnecessary wait time. The cab system is also really good. Pricey but good.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
