The campus is one of the nicest I've seen. Mostly red brick buildings, plenty of trees and very southern.

We were expecting something special due to the ratings but I think it is just students or alumni sending in their bias reviews. Not worth the time or gas.

This campus is close to city center. Everything is close together. Great place for sports. Separate football field and soccer field. Awesome health and wellness building. It is reported the ROTC is getting a new building as the one they have is quite small. Lots of dorms that are close to the education building. Student life building is awesome and... More

Got a better education in High School 20 years ago than at FSU. It is just a Party School. I don't know what to do with letters from graduates, correct the spelling, correct the grammar. Graduates are not taught to interview, especially with me at a large well known firm.

Loved it. Every time I go, it is during a different season and this time it was winter. Tally was having a particularly difficult winter just like the rest of the country. But, we had a good time visiting and studying anyway.

I had dreaded this campus for years because of cultural associations, but as I became a young adult, I saw much more of it than I thought I would (I obtained my higher education elsewhere). My high school graduation was at FSU's Ruby Diamond Auditorium, I've enjoyed a number of concerts in their music hall and Multicultural Engagement Building, have... More

You can never go wrong when attending a game at Dick Howser. From the outstanding product on the field, the wonderful and knowledgeable fans, to the beautiful facilities, you will enjoy the experience.

Went to FSU a week ago with my daughter who is a sophomore. Being from Tampa we were impressed with the lack of traffic and how easy it was to get around the campus and across town. Even parking was not too difficult. The buildings are the pretty red brick of Northern Universities. Amenities abound. The Admissions talk was to... More
