These schools are similar to Florida State University in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
95% of students
I like all the opportunities that are provided to students in regard to hobbies and extra circulars. The way that scheduling for classes is set up is very convenient and easy to follow.
My first-year experience with guidance counselors was not awesome. It was hard to get on the same page but after I entered my major program counseling was much better
They lie about being diverse and having safe spaces to implement a diverse and equitable campus. Though it boasts equality for all students, it is very obvious the favoritism that is on campus.
I had modest expectations before coming to FSU and I have been impressed with every aspect of the experience so far. The campus is beautiful and the facilities are all excellent, from classrooms to fitness centers. The faculty that I have encountered so far have been superb. FSU is full of teachers and staff that love what they do and are at the top of their chosen field. There are unlimited resources to help students with every facet of the college experience and so many opportunities to participate in tutoring, research, clubs, athletics, and greek life. The cost to benefit ratio for Floridians is truly unbelievable at FSU.
My biggest complaint about FSU is the large class size for many of my science courses. I am in classes with 150-300 students and so it is difficult to have one-on-one interaction with professors, but not impossible. I think it is worth it because it keeps the cost of tuition at a very affordable level, but it does take some getting used to if you are coming from a different experience in high school or another university.
Always something going on to participate or even just view from the bleachers. There are also so many resources from job opportunities to career counseling, mental health counseling, good academic advisors, etc..
There is a lot of partying and the grading scale is a bit over the top.
The campus is beautiful. I also feel safe walking through campus. FSU has a lot of clubs to be a part of.
The campus is huge so it takes 20 minutes to get to class if it’s far away.
In education-wise I’ve had great teachers and peers. Very helpful and a lot of resources to excel in classes.
One thing I don’t like about Florida State University is its advising department. I have found myself many times stressed and uninformed about classes and courses.
