We went to the opening football game against Murray State. The pageantry is incredible- especially Osceola and Renegade. After the game we walked through the campus and were very impressed.

It is a college you must see with all the beautiful red brick buildings and wonderful surroundings. Plus, all the students are the nicest!

And we are not even alumni - but wish we were. FSU is just a first-class operation. The buildings and facilities are beautiful, but what makes this university so special is the warmth, friendliness and attention to the needs of visitors. We went to a Saturday football game and came away with an astonished appreciation of how this university handles tremendous crowds with absolute ease. A good example were the "spirit buses." Arriving by hotel limo at the civic center, we saw a gigantic crowd waiting for transportation to the football stadium and thought a long wait was in order. Wrong! The buses traveled in fleets of six and quckly transported each waiting wave of fans to the game in minutes along streets closed to all traffic except for the buses. But our greatest respect went to the 80+ thousand fans who were boisterous but completely appropriate in their support of their beloved Seminoles. If you have never experienced the thrill and excitement of college football, take in an FSU game. Great fun for the whole family!

The Campus and environment around the school are beautiful. The school is close to a lot of bars and place to dine.

We travelled from the UK to visit different Universities within Florida for our son. We booked the tours ahead and rang ahead and booked talks with professors/drs in the subject our son was interested in. The professor was great - emailed straight back and was more than willing to meet and spend some time with us. We arrived at the University which is vast and very impressive, and we did our research and it is rated the 4th best in Florida. The day that we visited the weather was bad, but we were taken around in a mini bus which I understand is normal - we had a great tour guide, whom although was lovely and very knowledgeable, was like he was reading from a script. Have to say I was disapointed that you just got driven around in a mini bus and the only building that you got taken into was the student accomodation and a food hall. We wanted to see inside the colleges well at least one, the gym, and the football staduim, the beach - and have a real good look at the inside and how the school operates, and the real feel of the school,more than learn about the history of the buildings. They do this in England and also did when we viewed Boca and Gainesville and it gave you a much more in depth feel of life at the Uni. A fab university and very impressive and well worth a look.
