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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Since I was a little girl, I had always dreamed about attending Saint Mary's College in South Bend, IN. After being accepted and starting school in the fall of 2013, I realized I had made a huge mistake. I decided to transfer to Florida State University after my freshman year of college. I was extremely nervous going from a school with about 1,400 people to a school with over 30,000 people. However, I could not be more thankful for that unique experience at such a large institution. FSU's campus is simply breathtaking and there are so many opportunities in which to get involved, whether that may be through extracurricular activities on campus or local internships around Tallahassee. I was able to partake in Greek Life where I met other girls with the same interests as me. I also tutored in the Reading and Writing Center and was a content editor for Her Campus FSU--an online publication for college women. In addition, FSU offers so many wonderful professors who are enthusiastic about the material they are teaching. I majored in Editing, Writing, & Media--a program I simply adored, along with the majority of my professors (in fact, one of my professors helped me greatly with editing applications to various law schools and wrote me a letter of recommendation). Due to the fact that my major did not require as many courses as other majors, I was able to complete two minors (one in General Business and another in Communications) along with a Graduate Certificate in Publishing and Editing--and I still graduated on time! I would have never had those same opportunities at my previous college. Overall, FSU became a second home to me and I am forever thankful for the education and experiences the school gave me. I highly recommend giving Florida State a chance if you are considering applying. You will not regret it!
Florida State University is a beautiful campus filled with wonderful faculty and staff that are eager to help you reach your full potential. The large majority of my teachers were helpful, friendly, and skilled in their field of study. If I ever had questions about my course work or needed help, my teachers usually delivered quick response and action. The housing on campus is also a high point of my experience at FSU. It was a pleasure working with my residential advisors and I got to know many of the students, including my roommates, during my stay. One of my biggest priorities when choosing a school was to go somewhere that I felt safe. During my time at FSU, I can honestly say that there was never a point when I felt unsafe or in danger. There are safety stations across campus where you can alert campus police of any trouble you may be in and the campus police always responded very quickly. Overall, Florida State University is absolutely an amazing place to get an education. Based on my stay, tours of other colleges, and talks with friends that attended other colleges, I can honestly say that I would not have wanted to get my bachelor's degree anywhere else.
