I put this is the negative portion because when considering a university, you are more likely to find the accurate information here as opposed to the positive section which are often saturated with dishonest reviews.

Florida State is a really great University. Without a doubt the night life is fun especially on Friday and Saturday night but there are a couple of things you should know. Girls that come here (especially the freshman, Sophomore or Junior) get drunk at frat parties and clubs to feed their narcissism via a bunch of good looking alphas guys constantly hitting on them and grinding on them (on their backsides) on the dance floor whilst having a boyfriend back home or in another university. Fun and all if you are into that but just make sure you dont push it to the point where you expect a random girl you met in the club to sleep with you. There are plenty of good looking frat dudes that these women can choose from so consider how much your social status is worth before you get your ego hurt.

As you probably know this school IS a BIG party school. People will party three or 4 nights in a row, (yes during the week with classes) and do it all again the following week so dont be surprised if some of the students in your class appear unable to function properly.

The weather is great most of the time and if you tan well, then you've got it going good. The classes are fine but the smaller classes can be intimidating depending on the professor. Sometimes the professor has a high demand for class participation and contribution and if you suffer from social anxiety you may struggle with such classes. Bigger classes are more fun. More people= greater opportunity to make new friends and there is less time consumption on H/W. The tests are much easier. While I was lucky many students have to deal with non English professors who do not communicate effectively. Like I said I was lucky but it is common and would be annoying.

After your freshman year (dorm life) it can get quite boring once you live off campus. The bus transportation system is fine as long as you dont have a huge course load/schedule and have to travel class to class often. Finding other people in you class to study with is a good idea but can be challenging.

The fall football season gets hectic which is super fun especially when the games are at home but standing for 3 and a half hours a game gets old unless we are playing big teams like the gators/ clemson or Louisville it isnt worth it and personally I had a lot fun going to a bar with people I knew and watching the game live on Espn.

I wouldnt worry about crime. Sure there are a few ghettos in Tallahassee and right next to the Villa De Lago, there is a homeless shelter so its not the best place to live simply because of the location.

I found this site to be really valuable in understanding what I will be in for when choosing a University hence why I wanted to write this in a way that gives you all the best idea possible. Although I am transferring to school which will help me significantly more for job opportunities after I graduate I still love this University. Go Noles and fuck the Gators.
