The Campus Community

Whether studying at the baccalaureate, master or doctoral level, FSU students have exposure to award winning faculty and researchers; use of cutting edge computer and research labs including the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory – the largest and highest powered magnetic laboratory in the world – as well as a fully equipped Coastal and Marine Laboratory; access to art exhibits plus musical and theatrical productions by renowned artists, as well as our own talented students; and the excitement of cheering on world-class athletes in a wide variety of sports.

 

Extra-Curricular Activities

Both in Tallahassee and in London, FSU provides a comprehensive program of pastoral care designed to enhance student well-being by offering instruction and guidance in key areas such as orientation, study skills, cultural sensitivity, money management and health and lifestyle issues. Students on all campuses participate in an extensive extra-curricular program including academic excursions, lecture series, sports and athletics and a wealth of other activities. With over 400 student clubs and societies on offer in Tallahassee, from Acabelles, an all-female singing group to Action for Haiti, a society assisting relief efforts overseas to a radio station, to baseball, cycling, and all the usual sports, students are sure to be able to find activities to suit individual interests.

 

Housing

The International Gateway Program is open both to students wishing to live in Halls and students wishing to live out. London accommodation consists of self-contained flats in the heart of the city - a stone's throw from Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square. Housing in Florida varies but is generally shared bedrooms in either apartment or traditional student-style living.

 

Our International Students

Because of the high value we place upon diversity, our internationalization efforts include developing a culturally and globally aware campus community. Florida State’s Center for Global Engagement supports this commitment by providing innovative support services including peer mentors and an International Friends support group. Our International students are praised for the high quality of their work in research in the sciences, their amazing talents in the arts, and their superb athletic accomplishments.
