Very Average – There are a few scholarships available but they are highly competitive. The financial aid office is usually helpful, but their hours could be better.

Hungry? No Problem. There are a number of places around campus to find food. The food of the highest quality and greatest variety is located at the Student Union. Once you branch further away from the union, your options are still good within a short walking distance to many off campus establishments that serve a variety of options for food.

During my time at FSU, I made friends with different people from all over the world. My classmates were diverse, and racial issues never really surfaced. It was easy to make friends by joining any one of the many student organizations. I myself was interested in learning Chinese. I joined the ASU, co-founded the CLCA, and before I knew it I was on an airplane to China!

Guys & Girls:
Hope You Like Football – Many of our guys are huge sports fans. There is a huge population of frat boys and sorority girls. The nerd culture does have it's influence and there are many political students, but the overwhelming majority of guys I've me are just sports buffs.

Get Out Your Walking Shoes – Though we do have a pretty awesome bus schedule, the heat of Florida often means it will take half as long to walk to class. There is a night bus service and campus isn't that difficult once you know the layout. There are hills, but it's nothing extreme.

Pretty Good – There are some good places to go but after a short while it gets pretty old. Younger girls trying to slink into clubs is also annoying.

I play club soccer for FSU. The facilities are nice

Laid back. No pressure. Good professors. Good advisors

No One Cares – Have had experiences myself and have had friends who have had experiences in dealing with the office management. Bottom line.. they don't care about you. You can tell them something is wrong, broken, dangerous, etc. They will not address it. The people working in the office are mostly college kids who need some extra money. They have no interest in actually helping anyone. This is based on 5 different off campus housing places

A Little Pricey but Worth It! The restaurants off campus are great, the food is always good and the service is always friendly, there are a lot of great hole in the wall type of places near campus and Seminole pride is everywhere.

Not Bad but Not Necessary – The meal plan options are good for freshmen and those new to the area, its a good quick fix but your options are limited and Publix is a much cheaper alternative.

Thumbs up! The bus system at FSU is a bit complicated and confusing the first couple of times. There are a couple that go to different locations at different times. They say a bus comes every 10 minutes, but thats not very accurate. If your going to the other side of campus, it does save time obviously instead of walking, but it takes more time for the bus to get there than it does for the ride over to your destination. If you have popular class times (afternoons), your most likely gonna stand and hang on to something on the bus. One thing that is great at FSU is they have a SafeBus system that runs specifically at night only. It stops at around 3am, but its great for campus safety. They pick you up where ever you are on campus and leave you closed to your destination or if its a dorm, exactly in front of it. There is also a Night Nole that goes off campus and picks students up from clubs and bars, so they dont drink and drive. They go through every bus stop until you decide which one is closest to your destination. I would have to say that I am extremely pleased we have buses thats free and goes around campus at pretty much any time of the day. Hope this review helps :)

Thumbs up! There are definately a lot of places at FSU available when in need of a computer. The main library is Strozier, but there is a couple more places in which they have computers and printing available. They recently built the Johnson building which has MAC computers and laptops. During midterms and finals, it is extremely difficult to get a computer. However, you can always bring your own, connect to the free network and find a space to sit in. It definately comes in handy to have your own computer that way you dont depend on the few available especially if you have a deadline for an assignment. I believe the printing costs are .08 cents for B&W and .15 for Color. The times of the computer labs are extremely convenient and helpful. If theres a paper due at 8 am, you have time to go earlier and print it out without any issue. Stroz is usually open 24 hours with the exception of some days and you can check out laptops. Other computer labs close alot earlier. The speed is not bad unless there are a whole bunch of kids on the network then it may take some time :) Hope this helped!

Lots of Options – At FSU, we have a lot of options. You just need to make sure to do your research, and figure out which buses go where and at what time. We have the on campus buses, the university bus that goes off campus, the city buses (that are free for students), taxis (that take FOREVER to get there, but cost $4 to go anywhere as long as you have your student ID) and, as always, friends with a car to drive you around.
College Senior 2012-06-28T02:17:05Z
Fairly Diverse – Although we have a pretty good range of students on our campus, jokes are still made about black students only being there to fill up a quota. Most of my classes are predominately white, but walking around campus, I see many different ethnicities.

Guys & Girls:
Good Lookin' – Florida State has one of the best looking students bodies of any college. The girls are beautiful and like to tan in the middle of campus on Landis field.

Just Ok – The city is hard to get used to but once you discover that there is more to Tallahassee than just the city. If you are looking for outdoor activities there are plenty of opportunities to get out. Tom Brown Park is a great way to get out and also the Florida State Reservation which is free to students is a great local hang out. Also historic downtown which is walking distance from campus is a great place to walk around and hang out.

Florida State has great academic and academic opportunities, there is a wide variety of classes that are offered and the classes are high in academic standing. There are very thorough and informative. I have not had a bad experience yet.

There is a large number of computers on campus and there are usually computers available at the library. The only time that its difficult to find a computer is during midterms and finals. All the computers are fast and up to date.

It's Florida...The Sunshine State – It's definitely hot in the summer and can be cold in the winter. Always carry an umbrella because it can rain at anytime.

State of the Art – The gym is really great, with tons of equipment. The stadium is beautiful as well.
College Senior 2012-06-27T02:12:28Z
Never Stayed – I've always had a place off campus but had a few friends who stayed in them. They were decent and livable.
College Senior 2012-06-27T02:09:24Z
Wide Variety – there are plenty of options for classes and majors along with extra curricular activities you may not find at other schools.

Health & Safety:
Moderately Safe – the school is older but has been refurnished in some parts and there are small petty theft but nothing major to make it completely unsafe.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
