Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida State University is a wonderful school! Majority of my professors were amazing and very clear in what their expectations were in regards to assignments, papers, and tests. I do wish that my advisor would have been a bit more helpful in assisting me in choosing a major as I was a bit lost when I first started. The financial aid team was always super helpful in answering my questions, there was always a line at the office though so definitely carve out some extra time if you have to head there. I found that once I was in more specialized classes within my major you could really see the professors passion and see if you were truly interested in the subject. I would definitely recommend attending Florida State if you are thinking about it, there is nothing like walking on that beautiful campus!

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2010

I loved attending Florida State University for a number of reasons, with one of the biggest being how well known the university is and how that stands out on a resume. Between the football games, basketball games, student life in general and the superb academics, Florida State University is an excellent choice for most people. I chose to major in Economics, and they actually require you to have a minor since there is only 36 credit hours of Economics classes needed to fulfill the program. I chose to minor in Business. While the Economics program was good, it was mostly the same class over and over where you essentially learned about supply and demand graphs. It really did not do anything to prepare me for the real world. I learned more in my Business classes to fulfill my minor requirement that I have been able to use in the workplace since graduating. The best thing about my Bachelors in Economics is that it is almost always a talking point when brought up about why I chose that over anything else. One of the main reasons I chose Economics was exactly that reason, to stand out when applying for jobs, as well as the hope of learning something I did not know. To be honest, I wouldn't change a thing when looking back other than I would have engaged more with the career center to learn about future careers and internships.

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2019

My experience at Florida State University was excellent. At Florida State, students are given a surplus of resources that help you turn your passion and interests into skills and experiences. I was able to work in several research labs along with side professors, get one internship, study abroad twice. All of this was only possible with the help of many advisors, professors, and other faculty members. It is a great place to find and build yourself.

Degree: Writing
Graduation Year: 2018

Florida State University really puts emphasis on each student. Going to advisers or even professors in the English department for anything, they go above and beyond for you. My program was freshly new when i first started, but one of the deciding factors that made me went to apply was the internship opportunity that they put a lot of emphasis on. Internships are vital. Having experience, while pursuing your degree at the same time is something that benefits you in the long run. I recommend students to their research, if interested in this program. Talk to advisers they will help you.

Degree: Family and Community Services
Graduation Year: 2019

Although FSU was not on my list of top colleges that I wanted to attend, I do not look upon my time there poorly. During my undergraduate career, I was able to establish myself in a major that I am happy with, meet wonderful people who will become lifelong friends, be a part of the honor's program, and participate in organizations that I admired. I am very glad that my time at FSU has allowed me to continue to pursue my career at a top-level graduate school. Go Noles!

Degree: Exercise Physiology
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: Business Administration and Management, General
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: International Relations and Affairs
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!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

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.
