Beautiful campus

A walk across or a drive around campus and you can see why FSU often makes the top 10 lists of most beautiful campuses.

One of the most beautiful campuses I've ever seen. Just a wonderful place to walk around. The Legacy Walk offered a lot of information. Currently, the stadium is under construction. I am in awe of it though. Those football players are very lucky to play there.

Compact and beautiful campus. Lots of new construction. The stadium is known for being the largest brick stadium in the US. You can't see much of the campus by driving around it. Park your car and walk through the interior. Make sure to see the multiple fountains on campus.

What a great experience. Our son just graduated high school and we wanted him to go through orientation soon after that. He starts here in the fall. The orientation program was great for parents and the student as well. The orientation leader Kyle was very nice to our son and he wanted to give him a hug at the end... More

Once a fabulous school and a credit to both State schools and the State of Florida. Today it's run by business men and it's only true goals are profit and athletics. You can spend 4 years here and never get taught by a Professor. Most classes are taught by underpaid, under appreciated adjuncts to ensure their bottom line. Staff are... More

Enjoyed studying here, and have great respect for the educational community. They let me contribute to that process as a student, and it was personally rewarding. A great place to visit and study. Grateful.

My hotel is pretty close to FSU so I wandered around today for a self-guided tour. The campus is actually beautiful but the temperature outside was so hot and it was so humid.... I tried to stay in the shade as much as possible. Great architecture and the grounds were very well kept.

Tally and FSU has a good college vibe. Although the capital of Florida, it's totally more of a Southern Alabama/Georgia experience versus the cosmopolitan and Beaches of Florida's coastal communities!

We come to Florida state for football camp every year. This is a family tradition. The buildings are beautiful and the grounds are great too.

Attended freshman orientation. School is beautiful. Orientation was well run. The grounds are well worth a visit even if you are just passing through Tallahassee.
