What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
FSU is a pretty small sized school; which I love! The professors at FSU are very helpful with managing your time if you let them be. Overall, I think FSU is a great school.

FSU is a great place to learn, grow, and challenge yourself. Though a small university it has a lot of options for its students to develop.
