What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
FSU is an immense college with a beautiful campus and diverse student body. The college boasts hundreds of extracurricular programs and clubs, so there is something for everyone. Florida State is a leader in many disciplines and builds leaders.
Carla from Tallahassee, FL
Florida State is the best possible school that I could have chosen to go to. There is always something to do on campus, whether it be one of the 600+ clubs, go to the library, or simply playing frisbee on Landis Green with some friends. Nothing compares to game day in Tallahassee.
