The campus is large and beautiful with varied architecture, large green spaces and many large and some smaller quaint buildings. The athletic fields, especially the football stadium is enormous. Large trees are everywhere giving the school a feeling of being there forever. One gets a sense of an archetypal movie college campus. Academics are respectable, the school has a strong... More

The trees make this campus stand out. The facilities are well maintained and there is a great mix of disciplines on the campus, and even a circus school.

Gorgeous campus with many nice venues for dance, theatre, and especially music. Ruby Diamond Auditorium and Opperman Music Hall are my favorites.

The ultimate traditional university campus - just a beautiful setting and well maintained. We enjoyed the tour and found the information session for applicants very helpful. The student leaders were very professional ambassadors.

Beautiful campus! Great school. So jealous of my daughter :) Many soft spots for students to play and study. All their fountains are pools so the students can jump right in. The libraries are huge and very student friendly. Sports are a big deal so be ready to cheer through every game.

Nice campus, worth a stroll, or better yet a bike ride around the place, it is big, and can be very crowded when school is in session.

Took my daughter for her 5th college visit to FSU. What a beautiful campus with really friendly staff. All the classes were close to each other and it felt like a family atmosphere. Nice shade trees for her walks to and from dorms and classrooms.

Beautiful campus, great professors, great value for your education dollar :-) I earned both my undergrad and graduate degrees at FSU and now am pursuing my doctorate at another university. Prior to entering doc studies, I have been in my field for several years (mental health counseling) and am now fully licensed as both an LMHC and LMFT. I feel... More
