Our athletics at Florida State University are very accessible to students and fans. There is an organization called Student Boosters that are FSU students who get a ticket for every home game and have events with the athletic department. Our team's performance is average. But our athletic traditions are strong. Our students have the maximum level of school spirit.

Florida State University is conveniently located in Tallahassee, where you can enjoy a calm walk on Lake Ella park, go to a pool and lay out, or enjoy the night life at a local bar or club. There is a variety of activities to do depending on your interest. There are pool parties when the weather nice. Also celebrity appearances at clubs, which there many and they have wide range of music. There are festivals for multicultural organizations in FSU. They have food, dancing, and other traditional events for that culture. The Rez has a variety of our door activities to do with friends.

Health & Safety:
Campus crime is not a big issue at Florida State University. It happens once in a while, but we get email and text messages from the school with information about the crime. It is a very good service that FSU offers, and you can sign up for it on their website. There are police officers who can escort you if you need to walk at night and there are emergency poles that you can press a button if you need help. I am on campus all the time and it is not a place that I feel comfortable, and safe at.

I believe this is the case for most universities of this size but no matter how many garages they build parking is always an issue but it is an issue you can get around because of the public transportation offered by the school and recently added valet parking in case of emergency.

Very Attractive – The student body is very attractive. Most students dedicate a lot of time to working out and taking care of their appearance.

Somewhat Diverse – The school is not extremely diverse but it is very accepting and there are clubs for all kinds of people. The atmosphere of the school is one of acceptance towards every background.

The bus system is good. Unless you try to get on between 3-5 then you will get stuck. But most of the time it's on time and well run.

Go Greek!!!! The Greek Life here is awesome. As a member of this awesome community, I have met so many new people. I have also given so much back to the community such as Dance Marathon and philanthropic events.

The parking is wonderful on the FSU Panama City campus. Parking permits are free and were given out to the students along with popcorn, ice cream, and tropical smoothie drinks as an added incentive to pick them up. The campus is very compact and everything is within walking distance, so I just pick a parking space at the beginning of the day and walk only a short distance to the buildings. The local trolley even has two stop points directly in front of the campus entrance, which I have seen utilized by many of my fellow students.
The only problems I have ever had was when a conference was being held in the building my class was been held in. The parking lot directly beside the building was full, so I had to park in the additional parking lot. It wasn't much more of a walk though.

There is quite a wide variety of dining opportunities available in Panama City. Everything from commercial food chains, such as McDonalds, Applebees, Sonny's, and Chili's, as well as a plethora of local gems. There are several beach based restaurants that provide entertainment, food, drinking, and some even have a pool that they can bring all of our orders out there to you. If you are looking for an expensive and high quality dining experience, I suggest you try out Firefly on the beach. It has even played host to United States President Obama recently.

I am currently attending the Panama City campus of Florida State University. I love the atmosphere because it is located on what has been called by many 'the world's most beautiful beaches'. Each window in the campus offers a beautiful view of the bay and people playing in the water, fishing, surfing, and parasailing. Everything is laid back and very personal with regards to the class work and the personal relationship. There are not a lot of sports and recreation offered through this particular campus, but we have complete access to all of the facilities and events through the main campus. We have a plethora of shopping hubs in this area as well with both the beach and town malls and districts available. Transportation has never been a problem outside of the spring break rush we get on the beach.

Housing on campus is generally not great. Dorms need serious renovations

marijuana is readily available in tallahassee but harder drugs aren't too popular. pills for attention and concentration are popular around finals also.

FSU is host to many highliy ranked sports teams. Football season is extremely exciting and you can't help but get wrapped up in all the fun. School spirit is everywhere and going to games is a great way to de-stress, have fun, and meet new people.

The main nightlife at FSU exists at the many popular clubs around campus. Clubs are most popular on Friday nights, and are hosts to many well known DJs. Cover charges are usually $5-$20 and can be free for girls between certain hours. Greek life also hosts many many parties. These usually happen on Saturday nights and can be fairly exclusive. House parties aren't the main source of the nightlife, however you can usually find one almost every weekend. FSU is known as a party school for a reason, which means that you will never be bored on the weekends, let alone any other night of the week!

Not Very Diverse – Diversity at FSU could be much better. The school is mostly made up of white/catholic students, however there is a large black population on campus. For the other races/religions there is acceptance, and there are many student groups for these. Overall acceptance is very good, there could just be more overall diversity in the school population.

Go Noles – Our school contains a circus, one of the two colleges in the states. The night scene is very exciting every day of the week. Greek life is one of the top in the nation. Graduate school and law school are an option for after undergraduate years.

Don't Ride the Bus – Free for students. Not reliable at all. Don't count on the bus to get to class on time. The times it runs at night are very convienent though.

Greek life is a huge part to FSU and coming from someone who isn't a part of it this year, it is one of my major regrets. Will definitely be a part of it next year. Getting involved in general is a huge part to having fun and making friends here.

Rainy Days Go Away – It rains a lot here, so it becomes a hassle to walk around campus and stepping in puddles. But there are more nice days than gross days so usually everyone is hanging around outside or laying out on Landis Green, a giant field where people play football, frisbee, etc.

Sports Sports Sports! I think that Varsity sports at Florida State are pretty incredible, and the fans are top notch. I love how involved everyone gets especially for the football games. I am surprised to see how many people actually do attend other sporting events besides football.
College Senior 2012-03-31T03:44:20Z
I currently live off campus and the convenience to get to campus is excellent! There is a bus that picks up students every 20 minutes. The cost could be cheaper, the landlords are decent, it would be nicer if they weren't so lazy, and actually did their job remotely correctly. Parking is average, there should be more spots in front of everyones apartments. The safety is iffy, it's Tallahassee there is crimes all over the city
Sorry, there are no reviews.
