Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Being at Florida State University has been the best experience of my life. I will always cherish this smart decision of coming to this university. Being surrounded by my peers who are striving to make a mark in this world, meeting people through networking, attending life-changing events, expressing great seminole pride has truly changed my life. I have learned how to be a more responsible, hardworking, friendly, and self-determined person. FSU changed my life. Entering college, I never thought I would consider FSU my home, but I am so proud to be a Seminole. I look forward to continuing my education at this university, gaining not only educational knowledge, but life lessons. I know that once I complete my four years at FSU, I know I can conquer any mission I set for myself. My heart will always and forever be at Florida State University.

Degree: Film/Cinema/Video Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Wonderful program for individuals eager to learn the studio business and how the film industry operates. The program is mostly Hands-on. Everyone is expected to collaborate and work professionally in their respected jobs on and off set. High stress environment, ability to multitask is a must, and fast paced learning will help you to thrive in the program.

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2007

I attended Florida State University from 2003 - 2007 and earned my Bachelor's Degree in psychology. I am originally from Maryland and am very happy with my decision to attend school in Florida. The campus is beautiful, my professors were great, and there were many activities for students to get involved in. There are many options for on campus and off campus housing, which is part of the reason why I chose FSU. Being from Maryland, I knew many classmates who attended University of Maryland and commuted from Annapolis to class or lived in the dorms all four years. I wanted to go to school that was part of a community, which is part of the reason FSU was the perfect choice. I moved all 4 years in Tallahassee, and every location was near FSU, affordable, and well maintained. The traditions at FSU are kept alive by the students and alumni and it is a great feeling to be apart of a school that has high standards and support from the community. We became national football champions this year and the excitement and pride continues to live on campus. The only downfall was I paid out-of-state tuition and although I have been working for 7 years after graduation now, I am still in debt. I currently work for Florida State and am earning my Master's in Public Health.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 1981

It was a good fit because I went to a local school - not too far from home and a state school - a little less expensive. It was a good transition from high school to a more independent life/living situation. I found I could draw many parallels from a basic psychology education to the real world and many different industries and jobs. My first job out of college was in Human Resources and it definitely helped me get hired. Use college as a jumping off point in your life. It can transform you - unless you are driven to a specific career - get a broad education and take advantage of as many learning experiences as you can - travel abroad - self - study - internships, etc.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently sophomore at the Florida State University and I am a psychology major on the Pre-Med track. Florida State is a great place to live and study with a stunning campus that has places to lounge around and nap and an extracurricular life that can have you busy every day of the week if wanted. The coursework for the school differs major by major but if you are in the field of study that you truly want to be in then you'll find that it is worth all the time and energy.

Each major has multiple advisers that are there to help you with anything from time management to discussing the merits of taking one class over another to helping you map out your schedule for the upcoming semester. You will also find a lot of students who are more then willing to sit with you while you talk out what you want to with your academic career. At this school, and I am sure many others, the internet is your best friend. Both campus libraries (Dirac and Strozier) along with other buildings have computer labs that are open to students with programs ranging from simply Microsoft Office to Photoshop and other more advance options. You also can search the library's book catalog from the comfort of your own dorm enabling you to see if either of the libraries have the book(s) you need or if they need to get the book specially for you.

The most important lesson about college is to realize that academics are not the entire world, you also need to have free-time. It is really easy to strike up a conversation with a classmate or just a random stranger walking down the street honestly. Most everyone here is warm and friendly and always willing to share a joke and a smile. Same goes with the professors. Talk to them, visit during their office hours and ask questions in class. When you actively engage with them then they will be more enthused about the lesson and even a boring subject can be made entertaining.

Honestly you are the only one who knows what school is right for you. When you walk across Landis and see other students running around playing ultimate Frisbee or lounging around with other friends and pets, or when you go to see a midnight movie at the SLC and everyone is dressed up for the Avengers, or even if you are simply sitting in your dorm and you look at the window and cannot help but smile a little, then this is the place for you. There is no greater feeling then being a 'Nole!
