"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."

"Although I attended Florida State University several years ago, I continue to visit campus when I travel home to see my parents, who live in Tallahassee. Over the years, the campus has become more impressive as it has been updated with technology-enhanced classrooms, campus improvements, including new and updated dorms, and an amazing student athletic complex. These improvements extend beyond the campus into the surrounding area, which has improved student safety both on and off campus. When I lived on campus, I was involved not only in university activities but also community service. Many students value volunteerism and contributing to the community. This was a great way to meet new people and make friends. It goes without saying that football is huge at FSU and going to games are events not to be missed! For people who arent football enthusiasts, there are plenty of other social activities from student lead musicals and theater productions to a robust Greek life. The education I received at FSU was top notch, having been led by professors who are experts in their field. Although the undergraduate classes tend to be large, through the support of advisors, teaching assistants and professors, students never feel lost in the crowd. The College of Arts and Sciences is the oldest and largest college within the university, however, the list of majors from which to choose is diverse, including those in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. I was a psychology major and have used my degree throughout my various careers. Im grateful for the well-rounded education I received and the life-long friendships I made during my college experience."

"Florida State University...I believe the name speaks for itself. This institution is of the utmost quality, and my four years there will forever be regarded as some of the best in my lifetime. From the atmosphere on and around campus, to the experienced and kind professors, to the diversity of peers to interact with on a daily basis, this university has it all. If youre looking for a large university setting with great sports programs, as well as the feel of a close community, Florida State is a good fit. Although it is quite a large school, the campus is compact and it is easy to get involved and find your niche. Everyone connects with their passion for the Seminoles, and the atmosphere is always indescribable. I learned more than I could have imagined during my time there."

"Florida State University provided a great college experience! I was encouraged to grow and succeed during my time there. FSU is a large school and can sometimes seem overwhelming, which is why it is important for new students to get involved in however they see fit. For a large amount this is getting involved in clubs and organizations. While I believe that is important, new students should take their time and seek help at the counseling center and career center, two often overlooked resources. The college of social work was amazing and I grew into a more informed and compassionate person just from taking classes for two years."

"Go Noles! Not only does FSU provide an easy study environment from multiple libraries to clubs to greek life to honor societies that make the community smaller, it also allows opportunities for extreme growth in any area you wish to pursue. For example, I was involved in a club called Medlife that FSU offers, through this club I was able to go on two mission trips that nurtured my passion to become a healthcare professional. With the assistance of my college advisors I was able to alter my school schedule to best fit my day to day life and also be efficient in getting all my credits covered. If going on the Pre-PA path, FSU offers resources such as the Pre-PA club that help guide you through the process. By attending the Pre-PA club I was able to set up an internship after I graduated which aided me to obtain all the hours necessary to be a competitive applicant for PA school. Every major and interest has the potential to flourish through FSU. By being proactive and getting involved with the resources FSU has to offer, you will no doubt excel in your studies and future career."

"I attended FSU for my undergrad majoring in engineering. The school provides lots of resources for the students; job fairs, printing services, computer labs equipped with common engineering programs. It is a little difficult in the first years of study to have the engineering campus separate from main campus and have to travel between the two. However, once you get into all engineering courses it is nice to have a separate campus, parking is easier and your surrounded by like minded individuals. Like any school some of the professors are hit or miss but there are definitely some gems that know how to teach and care about their students."

"There is no question that FSU has some of the brightest minds teaching in the field of exercise physiology. As I moved forward in my academic career I continually found myself referring back in information and topics that were first introduced to me in FSU College of Human Sciences. I owe my core knowledge and working skill set to the professors at this institution."
