The best thing about FSU is the football games. Every game day, home or away, you gather with a bunch of people (some you know, some you don't) and you end up watching the game as a group. It truly is an UNFORGETTABLE experience. The one thing I would change would be more REAL professors teaching classes and less grad students. FSU is the perfect size; at first it seems huge but after a week you will know it like the back of your hand. Tallahassee is a great college town! There are two major colleges and lots of smaller colleges in the area so there is something for everyone. FSU has a reservation that a lot of students go to where you can tan, play volleyball, kayak, canoe, or swim in the lake all for free. There are malls, movies, clubs, bars, parties.. anything you can imagine is here. The FSU administration could be better. My personal opinion is if you aren't 100% sure what you want to do go in as exploratory major that way you don't get screwed over. The advisors only answer what you ask them and don't go into more detail that will be useful down the line but be firm and they will eventually help you. There is so much pride at FSU. If you are a fan of our rivals you will get taunted while in Tallahassee but it is all in fun. People take the "Seminole Pride" to the extreme with body paint and costumes. One experience that I will ALWAYS remember is my entire freshman year. It is extremely scary but very eventful. Live in a dorm if at all possible; it is worth it. Dorm life is part of the college experience and a life changing event. The first football game will give you a since of awe. Watching a game on tv will never be the same after that. The first party is also eventful. You will see similarities between the college parties in movies but yet realize it it totally different. The most common complaint of students is parking and towing. Tallahassee is very tow happy so DON'T BRING A CAR!! Especially if you are living on campus.
FSU is an extremely open minded campus. There are many people from all back grounds and all walks of life and I have never seen any sort of hate crimes. Most students wear jeans and tank tops or t shirts to class. Just wear whatever you are comfortable in. It seems that a lot of FSU students come from south Florida but FSU has students from all over the US and the World. And most of the students are from middle to upper-middle classes. Although there is both extremes also.
