    First visit from this Hokie. Miss the layout of VT but each building here is beautiful on its own. Just did a quick walking tour today but everyone was super nice.

    Wonderful institution with highly renowned and quality professors. Most beautiful campus in the state scattered with aged live-oaks, historic buildings, and an incredible landscape design. Unmatched access to the Florida State Capitol. Tours available through the FSU Visitors Center at the stadium.
