Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

The classes are quite large if it is a common class like college algebra or chemistry, and the workload depends on the professor. For most of the classes, the professor will help the students out by curving a test grade or giving points back for going over the test with the professor.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

FSU has a wide variety of majors, classes, programs, and class sizes here. If you take a general education class such as Biology, you're going to be in an auditorium with hundreds of kids. If you're taking a more specialized class, such as Intro to Statistics, you're going to be in a class that's similar to an average high school- around 40 students. All professors and advisors here are more than willing to put the time and effort into helping you if you are willing to put the same amount of effort back.
