There is no typical Florida State University student. Florida State University is so diverse ranging from students that grew up in Florida to international students. Some of the typical things we do on campus is to go to the union on market Wednesdays. To attend football games in the fall. To get thrown into the Westcott Fountain on your 21st birthday to become a "true nole". We're all different and I think that is one of the things that makes this university so special.

To generalize the average student here, I would say that people who enjoy partying, are satisfied with just being a face in a crowd, don't feel the need to push themselves academically, and are alright with not knowing their classmates and professors would love it here. Most students love sports and absolutely worship the football team, so an interest in that is a must.

That's impossible to do. There's a wonderful variety of people that attend Florida State that it would be rude to try and categorize them into one specific type. The abundance of individuals we have are what make our school what it is.

One that attends the Florida State University is enthusiastic. If you are the kind of scholar looking to embrace school spirit and walk around campus in college apparel, face-paint on game days, and overall indulge in school traditions, Florida State is the campus to do so. While the Florida State football team has had numerous accounts of negativity in the local and national news headlines, Florida State students and fans have still upheld the Garnet and Gold with pride, wearing Seminole apparel with the upmost pride, regardless of what other entities have to say about it. To me, this is the type of person who should attend the Florida State University. Someone who has pride and enthusiasm through good times, and bad times, and never once will regret to call themselves a Seminole.

One thing is for sure, to be an FSU student you have to enjoy the sun.

True Seminoles know how to have fun without compromising their grades. We get our kicks through helping others through our community service work, and from our student clubs/organizations. When we're not out helping better our community, we're in the library studying it up! You can find us studying alone or studying with fellow Noles.

When I visited FSU, I saw that most of the students were very spirited always walking around with their uniform on and very proud to represent FSU no matter where they were at.

When beginning my time at FSU I was pleased to see how diverse the schools student population was. The school offers such a wide range of opportunities and interests that I truly believe there is a place for anybody looking to make Florida State their future home. It is difficult to label FSU students into one description because there are so many interesting and unique people with a wide range of qualities and interests. One thing that stood out to me most when deciding on a college was how friendly everyone was at FSU staff and students both. It didn't have near the same pretentious feel that other notable state schools had and was undoubtedly the most friendly environment. Florida State students are known for being able to balance all of the fun social aspects that college life has to offer while also maintaining discipline in school and work. If there is one thing that all FSU students have in common, it is a desire to develop and explore the world, a dedication to the advancement of themselves and their peers, and explosive pride for their school.

You can not define the "typical" student at Florida State. Everyone is different and that is what makes our campus so successful. You can be anyone you want to be at FSU. But the one thing that all Florida State University students have in common is our ability to become great. Everyone at Florida State is intelligent or they would not have gotten into the school in the first place. The success one has here is up to the students perseverance and effort.

A typical Florida State University student is young either 18 or 19 with a 3.0 GPA. The typical student is quite social and loves being involved in extra-curricular activities or anything related to socializing that is academic. Also, they strive to achieve the most when challenged. If it doesn't involve a push of some kind, they're most likely not going to be interested. The type of person who should attend Florida State would be someone with a lot of drive that needs to be directed academically and physically. More so, someone who is big on public communities that are large and vast. That person should be interactive as possible and be goal oriented as much as possible. Finally, they need to be intellectually inclined with a witty sense of humor.

Everyone wears Florida State gear at least once a week for no reason and lastly, our students want to have a good time. Student organize small carnivals and games around campus, we have tons of adventure clubs like the sailing club or the scuba club, and people throw lots of parties to get to know everyone.

First let me preface this with I am NOT a typical FSU student. The typical FSU student is a Florida resident and participates in Greek life. The typical FSU student loves to party and be with big crowds. Some of them can balance their social and academic life but many of them (at least freshman) go kind of crazy with the frat parties and clubs. FSU girls are very pretty - don't know why that is but they really are.

Author, Napoleon Hill once said, “The starting point of all achievement is desire.” These past four years of high school have transformed me into a completely new person. Throughout my high school career, not only have I had to deal with change, but also I’ve had to change myself. I believe life requires everybody to accept innovation. This acceptance leads to personal growth, flexibility, and new opportunities. From freshman to senior year, I have noticed a positive shift in my work and priorities. Going into high school freshman year, I was extremely reticent and not engaged in any extracurricular activities. I was going to school only for an education, and I felt myself becoming slightly depressed. Not a lot of people knew who I was, and I was petrified of attracting attention. I recall promising myself in the beginning of freshman year that I would be open to trying new things and taking beneficial risks. To follow up with my promise, I tried out for cheerleading and ran for office in Student Council. Breaking out of my shell was not an easy task for me to accomplish, but this change led to the start of some of the finest years of my life. Now, walking down the hallway, I feel more confident and cheerful among my peers. I enjoy investing countless amount of hours at school participating in various extracurricular activities. This change in attitude has made me the devoted, self-assured person I have always wanted to be. Now going into college, I know I will make more positive changes in my life to help me grow to work and live to my potential!

A typical Florida State student is serious about their future, but also wants to enjoy their college experience. This town has many different things to do as far as nightlife. During the day, besides classes, there are nearby springs and field that students can play sports in. A person that attends this University should adapt to a self taught study habit. The courses taken and their difficulty depends on the professor but at the end of the day, students need to know how to teach themselves material that isn't spoon fed to them. Also at Florida State, we are a family. It is a more untied environment than other colleges because it is a small town.

Many of the students here seem to really enjoy sports - especially football - so sharing that interest is pretty important if you want to befriend everyone you meet. In addition to sports, sororities and fraternities are quite a big deal. So if you like football, parties, and iPhones, you'll probably fit in.
