Florida State University

The FSU experience is a unique blend that gives students the best of both worlds -- the active, personal and residential feel of a much smaller college merged with the academic power of a large, preeminent research university having the highest doctoral research classification. You may be aware of our successful athletics programs, but in the past decade more than 250 students have won the most competitive national academic and leadership awards, including three Rhodes Scholarships in recent years. Our students are highly engaged in leadership, community service, entrepreneurship, study abroad, undergraduate research, or any of 700 student organizations.Florida State is a destination campus, and it shows. Most of our students come from great distances to the state capital for the opportunity to join our community. The campus is student centered, and our students graduate at a higher rate than at most comparable institutions. When you combine our student success with our relatively low costs, you see why we often are rated as one of the top educational values in the nation.Our 17 colleges offer more than 340 undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees and cover a broad array of disciplines critical to society today. With many of our disciplines ranked among the countrys best, we stand firmly among the nations top 50 public universities. Led by our distinguished faculty, which has included six Nobel laureates and numerous eminent scholars in many areas of the arts and sciences, our academic programs continue to receive major recognition for their overall strength. Our excellence also shines beyond traditional academic settings. Our international programs are unparalleled with more than 60 programs in over 20 locations. In the area of athletics, our student-athletes continue to perform at championship levels, both on and off the field. Our students supplement their academic pursuits each year with hundreds of thousands of hours of community service outside of the classroom. In immeasurable ways, this University reaches out to our community, region, state, and nation. This level of service has been recognized by the Carnegie Foundation, which has selected Florida State University for inclusion in its prestigious Community Engagement classification.Our Honors Programs, Office of National Fellowships, Office of Undergraduate Research, and Student Veterans Center are just a few of the programs here on campus that show our strong commitment to help our more than 30,000 undergraduates reach their highest academic goals. To provide further support for student success, the Universitys Garnet and Gold Scholar Society program awards undergraduates a credential affirming their leadership, professional, citizenship, and/or research skills while building collaborative relationships in the academic, local, or global community.With a dedicated faculty and staff, a commitment to strong undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare students for the marketplace, and a research agenda that contributes to our world economy and quality of life, Florida State University is a leader in higher education. We plan to make you a leader as well.
