    From the perspective of a student who has Florida Pre-Paid, this is an incredible opportunity. I always felt like maybe staying in state wasn't the right choice as I could experience so many more new things in other states but * hours from home is far enough. The experiences and resources I have here are more than I could imagine and my tuition is paid for. Now I just have to figure out how to pay for everything else!

    Facebook Groups!!!!!! The key to saving money at FSU is joining FACEBOOK GROUPS!!! We have facebook groups that you can join through approval. A few of them would be the Free & For Sale page, Textbook Exchange, Carpool pages, Free Food at FSU, and FSU Craigslist. If you add yourself to all of these pages, you will never find yourself purchasing an expensive textbook, couch, trip home during a semester break, or even buying food on campus. Trust me, this will save your life!

    The student-centered atmosphere is a huge bonus of Florida State. The academics are taught by excellent professors, and every major has an opportunity to study directly under a professor.
