  • 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.
  • The professors are knowledgable and usually helpful. Tutoring is always available and very helpful. The staff and counselors are always there when you need them. Some of the buildings are a bit older but slowly they're reconstructing them
  • The good and bad. The classes are great and the content taught is comparable to the standard of Ivy League Schools (true story, the instructors are golden). The bad, some of the buildings on campus are run down (the community college I transferred from had cleanlier buildings). There's a fee for everything... if FSU could find a way to charge you for breeding the air on campus it would (they needed the extra money for the giant monitor at the top of the stadium while simultaneously cutting funding for any program not science, IT, or business related). If you're a transfer the orientation staff gives you half of a day to become acquainted with campus (they treat you like the stepchild). The map of campus will save your life. Signing up for classes left me more confused than a homeless man on house arrest. Hope you love lines, because there's no shortage of them when waiting to speak to advising.
  • Beautiful campus and plenty of facilities to use. However, there is a lack of events outside of football season, as that is what a lot of the school revolves around.
  • Took 14 year old daughter around campus during visit. She loved the campus. It's always a possibility that she could attend one day.
