It Seems That Pretty Much Anything Goes. I've looked at going to plenty of schools and most schools don't match the mutual respect that students and school officials have here.

the only computer experience I have at the school are the ones available in the libraries. every library has plenty of computers available on most days (less available during busy times like finals). the networks are fast and reliable and printing on campus is easy in the libraries, swipe your student card and its 10 cents per page i believe.

housing can be really expensive depending on the kind of quality you are looking for, but you're guaranteed to spend at least $400/mo no matter what. on the bright side, there are tons of places right off campus so you can either walk, ride bike or take the busses. parking is exponentially better off campus (on campus is a nightmare). safety really depends on the area you choose, i would speak with people that live in the area to get their honest opinions because a landlord will sugar coat it.

Pretty Good – costs are decent, several places have student nights with discounts, and there are enough choices to keep you from getting bored, until you find your few favorites and go to them every other night.

Plenty to apply for if you're willing to take the time to do it

The Best – Always something awesome to do every night of the week, whether it be a bar, club, or just a house party. The only thing to hold you back it your wallet, liver, and classwork

Good for the State Capital – Buses are excellent and go all around town, plus free for students. Traffic sucks almost all day. The hills make it difficult for bikes around town, but are good for on campus.

Classes are interesting, and teachers are always willing to help. Can't complain.
College Junior 2012-07-24T23:25:54Z
Classes are challenging, yet interesting. They keep you on your toes. The professors I've had have been willing to help any student who came to them despite rather large class sizes most of the time.

More Drinking – Tallahassee is a huge pot city, but it's usually not shoved in your face. Drinking is much more abundant and open. If you want to find pot it's not hard.

Guys & Girls:
Great Ratio for Guys – The ratio of guys to girls at FSU is about 1:2, so there is roughly 2 girls for every guy. From my experience on campus the babe to non babe ratio is about 2:1. This is stellar.

Many Options – There are many options for going out. However, several places just closed for renovations so there are not as many "crazy fun" places as there used to me. More clubs with different styles or themed days are popping up every month. There is something for everyone, I would be greatly surprised is someone could not find at the very least one place to enjoy.

No Car Is Best – Parking usually sucks, you have to "stalk" people for a space. The common joke on campus is finding parking. However, many people do not need to drive to campus, even people living off of campus more than 3 miles away. There are 5 bus routes, 4 routes go off campus to the many apartments complexes. There are multiple buses per route and they are regular sized metro buses. Very useful, most of the bus drivers are very kind, and you never have to worry about parking, tickets, or getting into an accident with your car.

On-Campus Food – I have always thought the food on campus was really decent. They have great options in the dining halls. They have the food court which has great options as well.

The Psychology Department – Thogh I have only been apart of the Psychology Department for one year, I have really enjoyed every part of it. All of my professors have been great and helpful. The workload is reasonable and the assignments have always been good.

Nothin' Much. Not much there...except a really bad Chilis and some other random stuff.
College Senior 2012-07-23T03:26:54Z
Could be better, could be worse. This is more of a pedestrian campus than anything.
College Junior 2012-07-22T03:50:32Z
Less Is NOT More. If there is one thing FSU needs to improve on, its parking. They have been recently building more parking garages, but could still use a few more. But, at least they are trying.

Housing Is Alright – Upperclassmen housing is the best. I lived in an apartment style dorm my sophomore year and had a fantastic experience! Because this type of housing is so popular the University just built another set of apartment style dorms. There are older dorms close to the center of campus that have recently been renovated which are really great. They are close to everything and give you a sense of the history of the school!

When I started at FSU I wasn't expecting to be offered such a wide variety of classes or subjects. The professors and the subjects are very stimulating! The classes I've taken have been small. Even as a freshman, I never had a class over 100 people. The professors really want to see you succeed and make it a priority to be available to students outside of class. Take advantage of this because it is the key to success!

Art History Department Is Amazing – I'm an Art History major and have been very pleased with my overall experience. The teachers have been really amazing. They are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach. These teachers are why I've grown to love this subject so much. I've never had a bad experience in one of these classes. They are available to students outside of class to answer questions about lectures or to give advice about graduate school or employment options after graduation.

Tallahassee Is Beautiful in the Fall! Like most of Florida, Tallahassee is hot and humid during the summertime. But, the weather is wonderful during the Fall and the Spring. There is nothing I love more than walking around campus in the months between october and april!

Dorms on East Side of Campus Are Better – The difference between the dorms on the East side of campus in comparison to the dorms on the west side of campus is night and day. I lived in Cawthon and I loved it. It was located right next to the library, near the dining hall, the rooms were large and you only have to share your bathroom with the room next to yours, and the dorms are relatively close to my classes. The only flaw was that everyone living in the dorms on the east side have to buy a meal plan, which a lot of people say is a waste of money. When you become an upperclassman you can live in the newer, apartment-styled dorms which are also very nice. The only reason I didn't rate campus housing an A was because of the dorms on the west side of campus (Smith, Salley, Divinie, Kellum). Although it's not required to have a meal plan with these dorms, the rooms are small and uncomfortable compared to the dorms on the east side. Many of these dorms have community bathrooms which means that you have to share a couple of bathrooms and showers with everyone on your floor.

Guys & Girls:
Hot All Around – Everyone at fsu seems to be very into working out and being fit. Can you find attractive guys and girls jogging up an down the hills of Tallahassee. The majority of the people I've met are friendly and have great personalities. For being relatively in the northern part of Florida, fsu is very diverse ethnically so whatever your taste in guys or girls, you'll be sure to find it at fsu.

Relatively Easy – Most majors require pre-requisites and a certain GPA to be formally admitted into the program and some require applications before you can declare it. My family and child sciences major only required you complete 4 classes with a grade of a B- or better to be admitted. As do most majors, most students are required to complete ~4 pre-req classes with a minimal grade to be allowed into the major. The challenge that I faced was bad instructing and slightly more difficult grading procedures. College is not like high school and if you aren't on the same page as the instructor then you could fall behind very quickly.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
