It was a great program & educational experience. I highly encourage future students to join a club/group that is related to what they want to pursue in their professional future. Being such a large school, there is a lack of 1-on-1 guidance that many students seek. Having a club with upper classmen to talk to really helped steer me in the right direction when I was coming close to graduating.
FSU is a great school and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to attend. The degree program, Exercise Physiology, is a very broad program that lets you go into any health related field later on. The classes are mostly science based courses such as chemistry, physics, biology, anatomy, and metabolism. There are opportunities for career fairs, networking events, organizations, and clubs; however, it is up to you to get involved.
It is a great opportunity to study there. The gradschool quality I consider is high. The job as teaching assistant is doable, and you could learn a lot by teaching. The facilities are new. Florida State definitely has funding so you won't see problems with no having instruments or money for research. In general, I fully recommend it.
I highly recommend Florida State University's Business School for multiple reasons. First, I feel that the class difficulty in the Business School is challenging enough to make you think critically about the topics, and learn to solve problems which is a skill that is critical to have in any professional setting. I also always found the professors to be very helpful whenever I reached out to them. Of course there are the occasional lousy teacher, but in my four years, only truly felt my professor was not helpful in one or two classes. If you're someone who is looking to go into sales, the professional sales program at Florida State University is very good! The professors who run the sales club are amazing, and I've seen many students take great jobs right out of college because of the direction and teaching of that club. Overall, I was very happy with the knowledge that I gained in earning my Business degree at Florida State!
The undergraduate program in International Affairs from Florida State University is one of the most rewarding yet challenging experiences of my life. The program is unique as it requires a student to take interdisciplinary courses that ultimately provide a student with a very holistic undergraduate experience that one can utilize in many different sectors. I personally learned a lot of information regarding social enterprises along with international affairs, which gives me a base when I search for occupations in veteran nonprofits!
I enjoyed my undergraduate program, however I had a little different circumstances with it. I started school by going for nursing, so I had to switch into studio art after a year and a half. Because of this, getting my credits was slightly different than the average art student. I like having studios for every medium, and the support that professors gave me was very helpful.
Florida State University was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The education I received from Florida State allowed me to continue the career that I had only dreamed of. I was very hesitant in leaving my family and living in Tallahassee but the second I got there I was sure I made the right decision. As a freshman it was very easy to meet new people and to get around campus. I didn't know what career I wanted to pursue and I changed my mind a bunch of times as a freshman, but the advisors always made sure I was on track to graduate within four years. The campus is absolutely beautiful with a little bit of a Harry Potter feel. The dorms are new and very close to campus as well as the off campus restaurants and activities. Theres a lot to do in Tallahassee over the weekends as well. The environment of the university was very welcoming. As my undergraduate years went on I began to be very interested in the medical field. FSU has a very good medical school and very good pre-health advisors to assist you in your post graduation plans. The biology and chemistry department are very technologically advanced and give a lot of hands on research opportunities. Theres also is a vast majority of clubs for everyone to get involved in. They range from social to educational and you will find at least 3 to fit into. The study abroad programs are available in countries all over the world and if they aren't in the country of your desire you can always do a work study where you please.The instructors always were there to help regardless of how difficult the class was. The financial aid at this school was very excellent and provided money for almost everyone who needed assistance to attend by offering grands and many scholarships. This campus is a chance for opportunity and growth. If I could do these 4 years over again I would.
Florida State University isn't perfect. It never claimed to be. Sometimes you will have a bad professor, and even in the names of the building you will come across history some feel is better forgotten, and others know should be seen as a reminder. But, it more than makes up for these deficiencies with professors who care. That will go the extra mile to help you succeed. With a student body that challenges the status quo and is always striving to make sure that our campus does better. FSU isn't just a school, it is a community, one that you don't want to miss out on being a part of.
College is a business first. No university or college will give you the golden ticket to a great job. It is YOUR responsibility to best increase your chances at getting a career and working to better your level of professionalism. Florida State University is a great school, don't get me wrong. There are many great higher learning institutions but you as an individual have to put in the time and the effort to make yourself more desirable in the market.
The Interior Architecture and Design program at Florida State University is among the best of the best. I had an incredible experience in this program and wouldn't trade it for the world. We have an amazing network of highly respected faculty who are passionate about what they are teaching and always willing to lend a hand. I believe this is why our program is so successful. This is not an easy program and students have to be fully committed to their projects and responsibilities to be successful in this field of study. As a cohort we spend countless hours together in the studio classrooms working late hours to complete projects that meet our standards. Even after the long hours spent together, any free time is still spent with each other celebrating our achievements. Overall this program sets you up for the professional world and has left a lasting impact on who I am as a designer.
