The experience at FSU has been amazing. I am thoroughly enjoying school. Online classes are a challenge, yet there have been great professors who offer great supervision. I am enrolled in a distance learning program. Part of my classes have been in the classroom, others have been online. I believe the education has helped me in my current position and will be of great value in my future.

Degree: Health Sciences

I am enrolled in FSU's online graduate program for a Master's in Nursing Leadership. It is extremely flexible and allows me to work full time and complete my school work on my days off. Highly recommended!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Graduate studies at FSU are of good standards, with state of the art facilities in some departments. Faculty are knowledgeable, approachable and motivating. Social life is also enjoyable and exciting. University housing for grad students are not so excellent however, there are plenty of off-campus apartments which are affordable as well as homely. Transportation is up to par. Overall, it is a nice place which encourages you to excel in what you are doing, at the same time allows you to enjoy life and have fun while working!

Degree: Liberal Arts

Florida State offers top-notch education with powerful figures in academia stressing critical thinking, organization, and cultural awareness as well. For athletics, the school remains unsurpassed. Tallahassee isn't the worst town by any means; however, locals of either predominant race are not as genuine as they appear to be and are often clannish. And unless one gets a job w/ the state or schools in this town, then that person should resolve to be underpaid, if not unemployed. In all, workwise, this town is an embarassment for a state capital. They need to draw in more industry and jobs, instead of just coddling to overpaid, and overweight, pencil-pushers who wouldn't know a real day's work even if it bit them in the a**.
