Florida State's creative writing program far exceeds any other program available to undergraduate students in the state of Florida; I was told this beforehand, and based on the education I received, especially now that I can see it standing against others, the instructor who advised me in the direction of FSU was far from exaggerating.
Florida State University provides so many opportunities to get involved with your career field and make connections outside the classroom, as well as having experienced and knowledgeable professors, especially in my major program. I was able to learn so much and find my dream career to work towards, and got involved in several organizations at school and in the community to make connections and meet people who helped prepare me for my future. The Career Center at FSU is also very helpful, and provided help with interview skills, resume and personal statement reviews, and taught young students to become professional and successful business people. FSU has several study abroad opportunities, which I was also fortunate enough to take advantage of. These programs are often program specific; giving students the chance to study what they are passionate about in another country! Overall, FSU made a reserved and shy person like me become adventurous and ambitious. I really stepped out of my shell and was able to make friends with fellow classmates and community members, and find something I was really passionate about learning. Studying abroad through FSU opened my eyes to living abroad and experiencing another culture, and this experience has inspired me to continue my education abroad through graduate school!
During my time at Florida State I found the teachers were very philosophical and not very practical. I also felt that the University was very detached from each other and it made it difficult to complete anything in their offices. Overall my experience was good, but I felt I could've been trained better to perform my duties as a teacher.
Florida State University was a wonderful campus to experience college. Not only did it provide me with an excellent education but it also provided me with a positive social experience. The field I chose to study was broad enough to include different professions for me to research. While in school I was able to do an internship at UMass medical in Child LIfe Therapy. I've also worked in child development and now I'm a teacher. I would recommend FSU for any field of study and remain a loyal alumni.
Great college, a lot of opportunities for internships, study abroad, and social activities. The academics is especially good for social science research. Career Center is awesome.
FSU is a great university with plenty of programs to choose from! I felt really prepared and found a job right away!
FSU's social work program was a great experience
FSU is a great school all around. The professors are very knowledgeable and most have office hours which provide a great oppurtunity for clarification. FSU alsohas great activities to get involved in outside of class as well.
As a former graduate student, I can only talk about my own department. FSU's Modern Languages and Linguistics department gave me an excellent education. I was impressed with the opportunities I had (e.g., research mentorship, grant funding, teaching instruction). The faculty and staff went out of their way to make sure I successfully completed my degree.
Attending Florida State University is the best choice I ever made. The campus feels like a community and has so many opportunities for students with all different interests. Go Noles!
