Campus Visit Notes for Florida State University
I visited in the Spring (April) and boy was it hot outside. Highs near 90 with humidity = lots and lots of sweat. However, there are lots of trees on campus, providing shade from the heat. I saw the football and baseball fields, which was pretty awesome. The students on campus all seemed to be having a good time, interacting with one another.
There seems to be a lot of school pride here. About 40% of the students were wearing some kind of FSU gear. The students were very helpful, and willing to convince me to FSU.
I saw a few professors in my intended major of meteorology. I did get to talk to a few of them for almost 30 minutes, which was pretty amazing considering that they were going home on a Friday. The fact that they stayed a little later to talk to a visitor was really cool.
All in all, I really enjoyed my time there, and can't wait to become a 'Nole.

We ate at the dining hall for lunch. We decided on Pollo Tropical because we've eaten that before. The food was good, as if we'd gone into one of the stand-alone joints. Off-campus, we ate a
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
We didn't do much else in Tallahassee, as I had to return to Atlanta for school. However, from what I heard, there is a decent selection of activities in Tallahassee.
