Didn't Worry About a Thing – I didn't have to do much. I was a florida resident so my scholarships were immediately applied to my classes. Once I filled out my FAFSA my rewards were paid into my student account and any overages were in my bank account by the first month of classes.

The weahter is beautiful. Summers are hot but the fall and spring are mild. Tallahasse has beautiful foliage. The only downside is the pollen in the spring that turns everything yellow and messes with sinuses.

Off campus dining is wonderful. There is a wide range from sit down restaurants to fast food. There are many popular well known restaurants such as Chipotle, Moes, Taco Bell, Subway, and Yogurt Mountain. There are also family owned restaurants that are phenomenal. Off campus dining is also easy to get to, most within one mile of campus. You will certainly not go hungry at Florida State University

Florida State has exceeded my expectations. I do not have enough positive adjectives to describe how much I love it here.

My Program at School – I do not regret becoming an International Affairs and Political Science major. I am so fascinated by the world and the way that it works. I am going to attend law school once I graduate, and I hope that finding a job in that field will not be exceptionally difficult.

For the most part, there are not many policies I disagree with on campus. The only one that is more annoying than uncalled for is the Gordon Rule. I understand the rule and why it is so important, but I do not feel I should take four classes to learn to become a better writer. Other than that, I have no complaints with Florida State.

I believe there is an even mixture of races on campus. There does not seem to be any challenges faced by any group. Every club on campus is a combination of different races.

Way Too Much to Do! Your options are ENDLESS at almost any day of the week. Just don't get too distracted!

Small Minority Community – The amount of minority students on campus are small compared to the Caucasian population, but we still show a very strong presence on campus.

I would not trade this school for any other. I love the different activities this school has to offer. The football games are always a lot of fun and every student has great team spirit. Even the libraries aren't half that bad to spend time in sometimes.

Campus Bus – Transportation seems pretty well at FSU. There are a lot of buses that run from decent hours throughout the day and go on and off campus. There are also special buses that run through late hours of the night.

Exercise Science – I am an exercise science major and plan to go to PA school after undergrad. I am satisfied with the curriculum the school has to offer. They try to challenge their students which is best for our future. There are a lot of required writing classes which can be frustrating, yet I know and understand the reasoning behind them.

Health & Safety:
There Are Very Safe Measures Taken by the Campus Police Department, but Robberies and Armed Assaults Are Still Common. I do not feel safe walking around anywhere on campus at night, even in lighted areas. The day time is great and I feel fine, but night time is different. Our campus however has great ways to make the student feel safer. There is a free safe bus that you can call and it will drive you anywhere on campus, there are safe lights ALL OVER campus that have an emergency phone attached to them, and the students get emails/ text alerts if they need to be precautions or if a crime occurred. Overall, the campus is relatively safe because of the many efforts of the authorities and it is normal to be nervous or to feel unsafe at night anywhere, especially by yourself.

Florida State has the best school spirit in the nation! From football, baseball, and basketball to sand volleyball, softball, and swimming, FSU sports bring a whole new life to being a student. The fans show up regardless of how well the teams are performing, although there are a lot of sports in which we do very well. You can go just about anywhere in the nation and find a Seminole fan!

A Non-Greek Opinion – As a non-greek student, the presence of fraternities and sororites is nearly suffocating at times. Walk just 5 minutes on campus, you'll see at least 3 different sororities being dispayed on clothing. Posters and other ads are all throughout the campus as well. On a positive note, the Greek students are huge on philanthropy; moreso that I have seen elsewhere.

Campus Safety – I have only had one personal encounter on campus when I felt unsafe. There was an older man lurking around the student union and within minutes, FSUPD was on the scene and escorted him away. However, at least once a week, a crime bulletin is sent about attempted robberies and armed robberies. They typically occur in the same general area, but we never hear of the police actually catching the suspects. That being said, I'm afraid of walking around by myself in certain parts of campus.

I have not started looking for an internship yet, however I know many people who have them. FSU makes it very easy and are extremely helpful with finding students internships. I do not know a single person who looked for an internship who did not get one. The businesses in Tallahassee are always looking for interns.

My family is not eligible for financial aid, so I knew coming in that I would most likely get nothing. Which is exactly what happened. However, scholarships through academics are not too difficult to come by, and I got one with my admissions just for being an out-of-state student in good academic standing.

Division 1 sports at FSU are a HUGE deal. Most students never miss a football game, they attend most of the Basketball games, and most of the Baseball games. Everyone here loves the Seminoles and will stand by them all the way. The Seminoles love their fans, just as much as the fans love them. Division 1 sports aren't the only athletics FSU has to offer. We have the largest IM sports complex in the nation, as well as many sport club programs. There is a sport for everyone!

Florida State has excellent Academics. Most departments have decent advisors, but not all are extremely helpful. Depending on the subject most professors are great. Some better than others, of course. For the most part my experience within the institution was above par. I came out with a deep knowledge base and a great all around school experience.

Food Glorious FOOD – Tallahassee provides a little something for everyone in terms of dining. I would not say that everything is up to par with the availability of variety in big cities. But, for the size and scope of the city a person can find anything, at any price and quality. Fast food, organic food, Italian, Japanese, Pizza, Deli, Ethnic. There is a fair share of restaurants to choose from.

At first glance Tallahassee does not seem to offer much in the way of cultural events, attractions, and shopping opportunities. The small town feel is something to get used to if you come from living in a city with all resources and social activities available at all times. However, once one opens up to it, the charm is undeniable. There is something for everyone. Decent cuisine, quiant coffee shops, fun bars, a theatre and art scene, parades, open markets, beautiful parks, and it being the state capitol- a fair share of politics. The city is very welcoming to Florida State, FAMU, and TCC students. Especially on days where FSU football is playing a home game. Everyone comes together for an amazing day of tailgating, grilling, and being unified under school spirit. All in all, a fantastic environment for any incoming student.

The school, along with the city, are very strict on parking. It is nice because I always know when there will be a high concentration of student traffic and when I should get parking. I would suggest that the freshman not drive so there is more parking spots for students that live off campus. The school is understanding but expects respect and consequences are enforced when rules are broken.

The Drug Scene/Alcohol/Peer Pressure/Police – If you are not involved with drug you wont see it. I live off campus in student living and there are parties every weekend and it is expected to hear drunk people late at night. This happens occasionally on weekdays, but the police are always on it and very attentive and able to quit the drunk students down. Police enforcement is AMAZING here. I really do feel safe, and I like that they send texts when things happen around campus and have those emergency poles all around campus.
Peer pressure is something that I do no experience. I have never been to a campus that if I said I ' cant to drink, or go out because I have to study or I'm tired or for whatever reason, my peers are so understanding. I believe that it is because everyone is going though the same general thing during the school years.

Being a Social Work Undergrad Student – The Florida State University Social Work major is a great and comfortable community to be involved with. I have never been entangled in such a friendly and helpful atmosphere. Almost every professor has been or is currently a social worker and I'm not sure if that is why they are so understanding and eager to help, but it's incredible. They are all very knowledgeable about all aspect of social work. Everyone in the Social Work department has made me very confident about my major choice and helped me pick out classes perfectly. I was so lost and they really showed me the right path and exposed me to what I needed to do to graduate with my BSW and continue on to FSU Graduate program.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
