    The biggest employer on campus is the Department of Campus Recreation. In my opinion, it is also the best! Working for Campus Rec gives you extra cash for the weekends, but the main benefit is the development that prepares you for life after college. It is also another family you can count on on campus.

Questions & Answers

Who are the notable alumni?
1 Answer
  • Fitness guru Richard Simmons, Spanx apparel line founder Sara Blakely, model Gabrielle Reece, actor Robert Urich, musician Jim Morrison, criminal profiler Dayle Hinman, and singer Rita Coolidge all attended FSU. Actor Burt Reynolds played football for the Seminoles during his time there. Many other student-athletes went on to great accomplishment in professional sports, including football player Deion Sanders, baseball managers Tony LaRussa and Bruce Bochy, and baseball player Buster Posey.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • HouseBeautiful selected Florida State as the most beautiful campus in America in 2015. One look at the majestic courtyard with the Westcott Fountain lit up at night shows why. (Getting dunked in it on your 21st birthday is a tradition.) Bright flowerbeds add color to the 475-acre campus. While you’ll find everything from historic buildings to state-of-the-art facilities at this educational mecca in Tallahassee, what you won’t see much of is on-site housing. About 80 percent of the roughly 33,000 undergraduates live off campus.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
1 Answer
  • As might be expected at a large, public university, distance education programs abound. Standouts include criminology, education, business, nursing, computer science, and information technology. FSU has received national recognition for its efforts to help veterans complete degrees through online programs.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the athletic highlights?
1 Answer
  • The Seminoles compete in the NCAA Division I Athletic Coast Conference. Football attracts huge crowds, and the team rarely disappoints. FSU captured national titles in 1993, 1999, and 2013. The baseball team likewise is a perennial powerhouse, but it has one honor missing from its history – a College World Series championship. The women’s soccer team has been doing its part to add to the university’s athletic glory. Since 2003, it has advanced to the College Cup nine times – the most by any team in the nation during the stretch.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the school's academic highlights?
1 Answer
  • FSU’s 16 colleges offer more than 320 undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees. Some of the most notable include criminology, interior design, school library media, digital librarianship, and community health. The university also has been recognized for its outstanding study abroad opportunities (50 programs in more than 20 locations) and for its commitment to educating traditionally underrepresented students.
