The Colleges Are the Town – The city of Tallahassee is similar to a small town. Once the semesters are over, the students go home, traffic disappears and your left with the locals. There is only one functional mall, really great events are rare so it's important to take advantage of them when available.

Easy to Get in...Easy to Get Out – It is extremely important to maintain an excellent work ethic to remain in the Biology major program. If you do not maintain your grades or get off track for graduating on time, you will be dropped from the program and unable to graduate with that degree

Typical College Party Town – There are plenty of nightclubs, house parties and bars on the weekends. If you do not like to party your weekend options are limited.

Overpriced, Overrated, Often Unavailable – There are 2 dining halls which often frequently repeat menus causing a lack of diversity. On the weekends, you are limited to a single menu the entire day and they do not open until 11 am- which is a brunch not breakfast. There are no other options on the weekends on campus other than chili's. The food options need to be expanded and more culturally diverse.

More Aid Needed – The process is simple and easy but there should be more financial aid available other than loans

Strictness Is What You Expect for a College – If you know what to expect for breaking a policy, FSU is on-par with that punishment. Not too harsh or too light of a punishment.

Wouldn't Trade This Past Year for the World – At every preview and tour and orientation I went to for FSU, they kept on saying "It has all the perks of a big research university with a small campus community atmosphere!" Over and over and over I heard those lines. I thought that was just what they used to lure you in. I didn't care. But after spending the past 8 months here, I realize those words couldn't be more true. Because this school is so big, the opportunities are limitless, but somehow, it doesn't feel like a big school at all. Everywhere I go I either make friends or run into people I know, and this campus feels more like home to me than anywhere else in the world.

Bus System – There are FSU buses that go all over tallahasse, but they are always crowded

Health & Safety:
Generally the campus is safe but you will get a few robbery alerts every few weeks or so.

Drinking and Drugs – Drinking and ALL types of drugs are popular in Tallahassee in general. I know people who have done coke or pills and of course Adderall. Drinking and smoking weed are more well-known.

GO FOR THE CRAPPIER DORMS IF YOU ARE AN UNDERCLASSMAN, THEY ARE WAY MORE FUN AND YOU WILL MEET A TON OF PEOPLE. IF YOU ARE AN UPPERCLASSMAN, LIVE OF CAMPUS, ITS USUALLY CHEAPER ANYWAY.

THE LEACH – THE LEACH IS GREAT. IT HAS ALL SORTS OF EQUIPMENT, THE CLASSES ARE AMAZING AND THE STAFF IS FRIENDLY. WISH WE HAD AN OUTDOOR POOL THOUGH!

College Town – Tallahassee is a college town rather than a big city. It is a great place to spend four years of college but I would not start my life here. I love the college atmosphere and will definitely be back to visit with my family.

When you are are a FRESHMAN. After freshman year it is best to move out of dorms. For freshman year dorms are great. They are on campus and give you easy access to class and other amenities like the library. Freshman year is a time of adjustment as it is a new environment. Dorms help with the ease into Freshman year and are a must for incoming freshman.

Everything Thats Necessary Is Here – Tallahassee has everything from grocery stores to a mall. There are two movie theaters and a good amount of restaurants. It is not a big city but it definitely is a good college town that is big enough for the study body and provides the necessities.

Everything Is Good – The leach center is very good. The Strozier library is very homy and it has a starbucks inside it.

Not Enough Options – The oglesby union cafeteria closes pretty early so the only options I can eat at if I have to have a late dinner are dennys and chillies.

It Is Complicated – The process was hard to understand at first. It also changes often so you have to keep up with the online web page.

The transportation that is provided by the school is the best ever. It helps provide a sense of sercurity also after dark and allows the students to have a way to get around.

I feel like Florida State's campus safest campus out of the schools in the country. Just by them having their own police department brings the sense of sercuity to me. I have no problem at all with with this situation.

High as the Sky – Seeing people high is not a rarity.. to put it lightly. There's a hookah bar right off campus that people go to all the time, but a very large number of people smoke weed, and lots of it. You don't see cocaine or anything running around except some LSD here and there, but no one pressures you and if you don't want it, they won't care.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
