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.

Great school! Florida State University is a beautiful campus with a blend of the new and the old. It offers a rich cultural environment with a diverse population of students. The academics are rigorous with a wide range of courses to fit every need. The communication on campus is student friendly and safety is top priority for campus security. Even with large class sizes, the professors are available to help students who need it. There is an abundance of different activities that students can get involved in throughout their college experience. Attending Florida State University is an amazing experience that is offering everything and more! Go Noles!
My experience at Florida State so far has been great! The campus is beautiful which makes walking to class worthwhile. The overall atmosphere is very relaxed and pretty welcoming. The professors lecture well and make class engaging. However, I do wish the student body was a little more diverse and I think some of the dorms could be renovated considering students pay a lot of money to live in them. I know I made the right choice in furthering my education and am excited to see where my degree takes me!
