    Dining Halls aren't too too bad, but just get repetitive after a while. Definitely watch what you eat though, there are cases of people getting sick, or sometimes being served less than fresh foods. Also a lot of time they run out of food ingredients to make solid meals so they improvise hahaha. Definitely save your Flex Bucks for those kinds of days

    If it;s your first year living on campus, it might be in your best interest to buy a meal plan. It may be hard for newcomers to cook for themselves, especially when you have to share a kitchen with your whole floor. After your first year though, when you get the hang of things I highly suggest getting off the meal plan. The food gets monotonous and is very unhealthy for you. Although, the dining experience may add a social opportunity for some, I opted out because of the horrible selection.

    Okay, a meal plan? No. The answer is no. You just don't want to do that. Go ahead and get one, but don't get the unlimited, that's for sure. The two dining halls, Fresh Food and Suwanee are ok, but not that great. They have a salad bar and then they have different food stations. I frequent fresh because I do have a meal plan and it is closer to my dorm. There is a salad bar, a pasta station, a grill, a deli and pizza. The pizza makes me sick every single time. I basically live off sandwiches and pasta. The on campus restaurants are great though! We have chicfila, subway, chilis, einsteins, salad creations, papa johns, sushi, pollo tropical, rising roll and freshens. SO GOOD. Get garnet bucks and go crazy.

    Poor on-campus meal qualities (no thanks to Aramark) turn on-campus dining to an as-needed service. On-campus branded restaurants are becoming big (like a Subway and a Chik-Fil-A). The Figg Players' Dining Room is my favorite.

    Definitely check out the dining halls (Fresh Foods and Suwanee) where they have a big variety of foods available for everyone. Also make some time during the week during lunch hours and go to the Figg Players Dining Room located at the stadium, you will not be disappointed.

    Suwannee is okay when you are really hungry but not the best. It does always have good sandwiches, though.

    The food is usually really great at the dining halls, especially when parents start rolling through for preview and the check the place out. We also have other options like Chik-Fil-A and plenty of places in walking distance of campus.

    There are various places a student could eat on campus. If they are on the meal plan then there is Suwanee hall and Fresh foods to go for full course meals. Granted, while they do not offer the healthiest options around, you always have the choice of going with either the pizza or salad. So it is not that the healthy options are not there, it is simply that the unhealthy ones usually overpower so it all comes down to self control and being conscious of what one is consuming. Additionally, there is an Einstein's, various Starbucks, Pollo Tropical, Pizza Hut, Denny's, Chili's and my personal favorite, Chick-fil-a. Lastly, there are multiple great places walking distance from campus that are also extremely popular among student life. Thus, there are plenty of places for excellent grub. Not to mention that Tallahassee has incredible culinary hidden treasures so go out and discover your taste buds favorite places!

    Greek Life floods the red brick sidewalks of campus. Join greek life to be in a large social network and for future connections. Make sure you have a free schedule, greek life is involving and demanding. They are expensive, so make sure they're worth it and you keep your grades up.

    Greek life is life. Greek life is very big here at FSU. However, even if it is big, you do not have to be a part of it. Granted you will see a sorority girl with her spirit jersey in just about every part of campus, there's so much outside of it as well. But if you do decide to join it, join aphio aka the best one. jk that's my frat but do what you want to do

    It's everywhere, I personally find it annoying, but what can be done? It's usually not a problem, but some of them don't have the nicest of reputations around campus.

    Greek life is big at FSU but not overwhelmingly popular. There is not just one sorority row at FSU unlike other colleges, instead the fraternity and sorority houses are spread apart and some are in unsafe areas.

    Everywhere you turn there are greek symbols. FSU is known for having a huge amount of greek life and it surround you everywhere.
