My son is graduating this year from FSU. We have enjoyed all the get togethers the school has put on for students and parents alike. What a stadium, castle should I say. Inviting staff, and a circus school to boot. I will be back!

Truly awesome campus. Clean, vibrant, and positive. This is Florida's best - easily. We wish our overview was more in-depth, but for what it was, everything was quite impressive.

Toured the campus during the summer of 2012 ("tour" was given completely indoors because of inclement weather, then we drove ourselves around the campus and town) and really liked it. Experienced the school much more during orientation in May and then we settled our son into his dorm in June for summer term. This is a beautiful campus with a... More

My second trip to FSU, this one to assist our daughter moving in for freshman summer session. Beautiful campus, and its a good time to see it while things are quiet. If you love history, be sure to take a walking tour and enjoy some of the architecture and the FSU museum

As a current student at FSU I always wonder how many other students acknowledge the beautiful landscapes. It is truly beautiful and if you have not visited Dodd Hall yet, please do so. The building's stained glass is so unique and you feel as if you stepped into a combination of Hogwarts Entrance Hall and the Sistine Chapel. Other than... More

A couple of presidents ago, serious landscaping commenced across the campus. It's quite attractive. Otherwise, there's not much else to do except look at statues celebrating the existence of former administrators and dining a fast-food establishments with which the university has partnered. Football fans, however, do enjoy the stadium complex; performances at the splendid school of music are as engaging... More

Situated on what used to be Hanging Hill, FSU has a rich social and educational history for a Florida institution. You can take a van tour, or use the Visitor Center for a map and information and do a self-guided walking tour, or just wander around, making sure not to miss the Strozier Library and its current exhibit, the Fine...

FSU is worth a a trip to see the lovely architecture and green spaces. Also don't forget a visit to the stadium, the Cathedral of Football, which is a wonder in itself. The performance halls, especially Ruby Diamond auditorium are very nice and well worth a visit. If you can attend a performance here, even better.

I graduated FSU in 95 and it was amazing to see all the changes and upgrades. Still a beautiful campus but the new schools and stadium are outrageous.
