  • They campus is absolutely gorgeous and we had a great tour here. The area is really nice as well. I can't complain about the weather either since I was born and raised in Florida and it beats the freezing cold. They have good academics and are well recognized, at least in my perspective and I can't see a valid reason I personally wouldn't want to go here - meaning I think it would be a great school to attend. It's also in the states capital, which for my major is a huge perk.
  • This is an amazing University to attend. The instructors are friendly and informative, pushing each student to do their best work. The staff for each building and the groundskeepers collectively keep the school beautiful and maintained. The community around the school also gives a great environment to grow up in and mature.
  • FSU has a beautiful campus. I did not realize how old university was until I took the tour. As a parent of a new Seminole. I had a great feeling of belonging among the students, unlike UF which seems a little cold. However, both very good schools. It was hard for my daughter to make a decision, but for Bio-Eng-Bus its perfect for her...
  • Spent 7 years received two Ba. Sci. degrees and worked for the University as an Accountant. Some of the best times (and friends) of my life are there.
  • I had such a amazing time getting to take pictures on the football field and visit all there is to offer here on campus. A once in a lifetime experience I must say. I love the feeling this campus gives off.
