Florida State University Graduate Reviews

49 reviews
It's a great institution for graduate students who want to work on research in their respective fields. The student body itself is not very diverse, but they try to be welcoming and provide student activities and opportunities. This small town heavily relies on the football scene to run its economy and "tourism." When athletic events are not active, this city feels like a ghost town. Also, beware of the political and religious climate here. Although it's the state's capital, you're basically in southern Georgia/ bible belt area.

I cannot imagine my undergraduate career elsewhere. Attending college in the state capitol gave me so many chances to become involved in the state legislature, gubernatorial campaigns, and state agency work. There is no other university in Florida that could have given me the opportunities that FSU did. I decided to attend graduate school also at Florida State because there will never be another university that will mean as much to me as Florida State has.
Good education overall, but did leave some things to be desired in my particular program of study. However, it was very convenient that the entire program was offered online and was designed for working professionals. Since graduation I have found that some of the skills that I needed were not taught. Also, industry standard certifications were not offered in this graduate program.
