Graduation Year: 2016
"I loved my experience at Florida State University, receiving a bachelor's degree in Music Education. My freshman year, I lived on campus in Cawthon Hall, which was for mostly music students. I had a great time there, with awesome roommates and three classes in my dorm. All the courses, from ear training, to music history, to class piano, to orchestra, to cello studio, to private lessons, to educational were enriching and life-changing. I felt very prepared to enter into my professional field when I completed my degree and graduated. I would highly recommend it to any student."

"Florida State University is truly a unique university. It is located within Tallahassee, the capital of the state, along with two other major schools, FAMU and Tallahassee Community College. The schools all work cooperatively with each other in several departments. We are also the center of political activity within the state which can provide some exciting opportunities to be involved political and with activist groups. FSU is the smallest land area school but it's also beautiful. Several libraries are on campus which are incredible. The food on campus is not the best but they are always striving to improve the Union. Parking garages are also increasing, but parking is still an issue on campus. Professors actually care about their students and you can schedule meetings with them about your future and they will actually give you good advice."

Degree: Communications (Public Relations)
Graduation Year: 2013
"My time at Florida State University was crucial to my growth and development as a person. Though I continue to learn and grow since I have graduated, so many of my experiences at FSU have truly shaped me into who I am today! FSU is a larger university, which may not be the best environment for everyone, but I feel that there are so many opportunities to shrink the university and build connections through either working on campus or getting involved in student activities, which really enabled me to get connected within the university. Everyone's experience is different, but my friends that I made at Florida State are some of the best friends I have ever had and are still a part of my life today."

James Williams - 2/27/2019
Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Sofia Helguera - 1/10/2019
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Austin - 12/27/2018
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018
"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!"

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018
"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!"

Rachelle Garneau - 8/8/2018
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."
