I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Florida State! Between the professors and the advisors in each college, I feel prepared for my future, and equipped with all of the tools I need to succeed. Throughout the years, I have felt that FSU has only pushed for me to strive for academic success and success in extracurricular actives - like clubs, jobs, or internships. There has always been someone to help and match you with resources. Our student life and culture is not only fun, but encouraging. I have always felt safe - and our facilities are always in mind in terms of renovation in order to give students a positive experience. I genuinely believe there is a place for everyone at Florida State - as there is something for everybody!

FSU has a great community, especially the student-teacher relationships, which help in career and degree planning. There are numerous clubs and organizations to meet any preferences and interests with the option to create you're own!
Great school! Always have had great teachers and a wonderful experience. Each teacher genuinely cares about the students, regardless of the class sizes. The vibe around campus is always uplifting and friendly. Although it is a big school, the administration, students, and staff do a good job of making you feel as if the school is smaller than it really is. Sporting events are always a blast. Going to a school where you can take pride in both your academics and athletics is always a plus. I previously attending a smaller school before transferring to FSU and it has made a world of difference in my life.
