The first time I ever visited FSU was during orientation. I was amazed at how the staff made the parents feel at ease. Although FSU is a very large institution, we felt FSU caters to each student as an individual.

The orientation felt like a marathon! A lot of information in a short period of time - but it was all worth it.

I was a bit disappointed on the use of technology - this was not really addressed during orientation. Another surprise is that co-ed dorms (at least the one my child is in) is truly co-ed. Guys and girls on the same floor!

I started not to go to this Society meeting on campus but at the last meeting.
I called in late and went. One friend had a family funeral. One friend had a roof
falling in from heavy rains. To go or not go--alone. I drove there through pouring
rains that Florida is famous for. It took forever to reach the Cabot Lodge. Surprise!
Classmates were super friendly, happy to be back in Tallahassee and the South.
Campus looked marvelous. Tallahassee looked wonderful with Everything blooming--it is
springtime there. Events were well planned. The President of the University mingled with
everyone. There was joy, camaraderie and a positive FSU spirit. When the FSU fight song
was played at a luncheon every stood to sing PROUDLY and all knew (remembered) the words. This school has stood the test of time, no doubt about it.

really lovely campus just for strolling around in. Lots of activity happening, ball games, summer camps etc. Even with main school out for summer it was an active place.
