The Best thing about FSU is how "homey" it feels. It seems like there is a disease that once you go to FSU and live in the area, you can never leave! (or at least while in college) People are friendly here and everyone hangs out with everyone. There is a pride that you get when walking on campus because there is so much history. The school pride definitely lowered when our football team wasn't doing too good, but we still stood up for the team and have pride that we are the Seminoles. The most recent controversy on campus was Our football coaching staff and people quitting...aka: getting fired.I spend most of my time at the Psychology building or the library. when I tell people that I go to FSU I get great remarks. People get proud, envious and happy. I do not know much about FSU's administration, but obviously they are doing good things. what I would change is our roads- they are so crappy and everytime you drive anywhere you are getting jerked around. It also makes the campus look "dirty", so I think clean up and construction is needed to make our campus look nicer. Parking lots need to be paved because people get stuck in the rocks sometimes! Also- because campus is so old, everything is so tight and random. There will be random poles and weird stuff everywhere. But this all adds to the feel of going to FSU so its cool! of course, more parking is needed, but they have done great at building garages. I always remember my freshman year and all the randomness with it. One of the best years of my life.
Professors do not know my name. Classes are so big most of the time that it is hard for them to know my name. My least favorite class was race and ethnicity w/ Mickelson. The class was unnecesarilly hard and only his previous students recieved good grades. I am straight A student and got a C- in the class! errghh. The Psychology department is wonderful! I dont feel like students have the best intellectual conversations out of class, but i say this because there are so many freshman everywhere so you only hear them! Once you are a 2nd semester sophmore or a junior, conversations get much better, and not only about partying. I do not spend time with professors outside of class. FSU education so far for me has been geared toward getting a job. Its great!
I dont think that any student would feel out of place here. The only thing would be whenever you get around the sorority girls and frat guys- they flaunt money like its nothing and so it makes you feel like your poor! Other than that we are pretty diverse.
The Best Things
The comfortable feeling you get when going to college here. its so fun , yet professors are great and you learn a lot!
The Worst Things
The tight parking and driving spaces and the roads.
