Florida State University is “a large, sports-oriented, research-intensive state school that has a niche for everybody, as long as you are willing to search.” In addition to its strong academics, students tended to choose FSU for its “sports teams”—the Florida State Seminoles—the “great weather,” and the fact that it’s “a place with great traditions.” “Florida State is a school that is so rooted in tradition it is extremely hard not to proudly call yourself a True Seminole.” FSU is also “affordable” for in-state students with “excellent scholarships.” “The tight vicinity of the campus [causes] the student body to be a close-unit of individuals.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
