We went there to check out the campus for our son who is considering attending in 2021. It was a very hot, humid day but the campus is attractive. We weren't all that impressed with Tallahassee in general though, and pretty much we couldn't do much because of COVID. Bummer! But we were glad to at least drive and walk around to get a feel for the campus. As far as a large campus goes, this is pretty good.

We took a walking tour of FSU. What a beautiful campus! Loved the historic brick buildings, abundance of moss covered oaks, shaded walkways, and the sprawling open space of Landis Green. And a circus on campus? That was a surprise! Parking was easy for our summer tour, but I imagine it's normally a challenge.

We traveled to Tallahassee to see a football game. The campus was very nice and the size of the stadium was impressive. However, the surrounding area was extremely disappointing. Once we left the campus we were hassled at almost every red light for money. One guy said "you have a dollar for beer?" I said no. Then he said "what about porn?" Once he realized we were not college students he said "you don't go to FSU? Never mind" and walked away. Apparently students think his statements are funny then give him money. People were also hanging out in front of nearby convience stores, gas stations and even ATMs begging for money. It really detracted from the experience of visiting FSU. My husband wants our daughters to go there and I told him no way if the area remains like it is today. Honestly think it will just go downhill. What a shame since it is a good school.

Quick day in Tallahassee and my hotel was right by campus so I took the opportunity to walk through the University. Just lovely. We loved the moss-covered oaks. With COVID, some things were closed.

FSU has a beautiful campus, particularly the center with the fountain. I could not find a free place to park even on a weekend.

Reluctant visitor at best, but the campus really is lovely and parts are historic. Worth the visit!!

Florida State University is a beautiful campus, not a huge fan of the surrounding area a bit unkept for the State Capital. I wish this University was closer to South Florida

Pretty compact campus considering the number of students that attend. Lots of trees and beautiful buildings. Great athletic facilities and the roads are very easy once you get the lay of the land.
