Health & Safety:
I feel completely safe on FSU's campus. The blue light trail, equipped with emergency phones, is set up all over campus. You can see at least two from any spot on campus. I feel that the dorms are very safe and secure. Obviously people shouldn't put themselves in situations that could end up being unsafe, such as leaving their door unlocked or going for a 3am run alone; but as long as you think safe you will be safe on this campus.

Even as a freshman I see opportunities for internships all the time around campus. The more and more clubs you join that interest you will give you more networking and opportunities to get jobs and internships that can end up being really beneficial to your future.

I personally haven't had the opportunity given to me to have a computer or access a school owned one. Make sure you bring your own laptop. Some of the dorms don't have wifi either, which can end up being a huge pain.

FSU has an amazing sports program. Game days are absolutely massive, and the entire campus is alive on saturdays. Every sports event has tons of people there, and the school spirit is great.

Its not that big of a deal here at FSU. Drinking is much much more common, and I haven't met anyone that does serious drugs. Coke is mainly contained with a few select frat houses. Other than that, the campus is pretty drug free.

I have only used them a few times but every time they satisfy my needs enough.

On campus, rarely anyone is seen with drugs or alcohol of any kind. There may be a few that drink or smoke marijuana in the dorms, but many are found and punished. Off campus, students are more likely to drink or smoke marijuana. Drinking is the main activity, like in any college, and drugs are not really used.

The financial aid process is moderately easy at my school. However, I am in my senior year, which means my classes are most expensive, and FSU has actually given me less funding, so I had to take out loans.

There are a lot of computer labs in my opinion. Normally there's always a computer available, but some people just don't know about every computer lab so I feel as if they all rush to our main library.
Printing it cheap in my opinion, it's only eight cents a sheet. The network is mainly reliable, but recently any website related to FSU has been going a tad bit slow.
Wireless access sucks on some parts of campus, and it basically horrible on the first floor of the main library, which is always packed during finals and midterms.
I normally print at school, so the need for a personal printer isn't so high; the need for a personal computer is high though, because you don't always know when there will be one available and sometimes you want to work from your home.

Specificity of a major can only help you. Advisors, alumni, recent grads and more offer great resources to network and connect to find internships and jobs. I have had internship offers every semester since joining my major and have all been major related. My program has 39 credit hours and includes internship for class credit. The workload is average but can increase if you have a second major. The facilities for our classes are great and usually located in the stadium/University Center. I love my college.

If you do not hang out with people who drink or do drugs, you won't see it used heavily. The most obvious and visible time of the year is game day season, when football game tailgates are centered around drinking.

I would say campus strictness is pretty standard at FSU. We have an honor code that is strictly enforced, but it highlights inappropriate conduct and behavior which would disrupt learning or violate rules. FSU is very strict against plagiarism and underaged drinking.

I loved the dorm life at FSU's campus. It was convenient in location and safe considering the dangerous areas on the outskirts of campus. The costs were decent and I would recommend living in any dorm that was remodeled from 2006 and beyond.

There is a pervading sense of "just don't get caught". If you are obnoxious and obvious you WILL get in trouble, but if they can let you off on a technicality, they will glad turn a blind eye to a lot of things.

You always have access to the kinds of computers you need. For example, I was an art major and our labs had top of the line mac desktops. Printing can be a little tougher and expensive, but you learn quickly where to go for printing.

As long as you learn to navigate the area, there is plenty to do and campus is relatively safe. Unfortunately it is easy to end up in a bad part of town if you don't know what you're doing. But there is plenty to do, and plenty of folks to do it with!

There are plenty of outdoor opportunities for students, such as camping/lake trips and games and such. Nightlife is great - there is a party every night and great nightclubs. However, if the party scene isn't for you, it may be a bit more difficult to find nighttime recreation, since there is a pretty big party atmosphere at FSU. FSU has several safety precautions in place for students, such as an emergency pole system, night bus, and safe van, but sexual abuse and robberies can still be common, mostly by non-students.

FSU is one of the top universities in the nation because it students continuously perform high, and maintain the standards of a large state university. Teachers or TAs are always available to help the students excel, and in my experience, professors have a real love do what they teach and a genuine desire to pass their knowledge onto their students.

As a theatre major, I cannot speak highly enough of the program here at FSU. I have so many opportunities and doors open for me that I know I would not have if I wasn't here. I have met Broadway producers and actors - who are all FSU alumni who have given me and my fellow students great advice about the real life as a theatre major after college. In the fall, I will be studying abroad at the London Study Center, studying theatre with some of the most renowned directors internationally.

The school itself is great, and both the chemistry and math programs are very strong with great faculty who really care about the well-being and future of the students. They are more than willing to help with not only classwork, but share their research and help you figure out things you can do with your major.

As far as getting into the program, I was automatically accepted into my major after I obtained 60 credit-hours. I thought it was supposed to be more of a process, but it was very pain-free for me.

There are many of them to choose from, all have the latest software on them, and are in good condition.

I have two majors: Pure Mathematics and Chemical Science. I personally love the two programs. The teachers in both are very well-versed in their fields and very dedicated to the students (all the teachers I had were, anyway). I haven't narrowed down my direct career path, but luckily there is a chemistry professor who is very invested in me and is willing to help me find a good fit for me; I meet with him at the end of the week!

I was enrolled in the FSU-Teach program for a semester, and was able to go into the classroom and teach right away. There was a lot of planning and effort that went into it, but the rewards were great, seeing the children's face light up when they understood a new concept. There was no pay; it was strictly for experience and exposure to the classroom.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
