Learn from internationally recognized faculty, including Pulitzer Prize winners, Guggenheim Fellows, members of the National Academy of Sciences, and members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Create exciting, collaborative research projects through the Office of Undergraduate Research—even as a freshman!

Achieve more through the Florida State University Office of National Fellowships as they mentor your application for prestigious scholarships and fellowships. Over the past decade, FSU students have won more than 250 nationally competitive awards, including three prestigious Rhodes scholarships, four Truman scholarships, eight Goldwater scholarships, eighteen Hollings scholarships, four Pickering fellowships, and over eighty Fulbright student scholarships. Our students have travelled to over 50 countries, expanding FSU’s influence around the globe.

Excel as a participant in the University Honors Program, where exceptional first-time students benefit from an enriched curriculum and experiential learning projects.


Study all night long at Strozier Library, which puts seven floors of technology and educational resources at your fingertips 24-hours a day. You have access to group study rooms equipped with SMART boards and floor-to-ceiling white boards; individual study rooms; free laptop checkout, textbook rentals, and tutoring; and a 24-hour Starbucks.

Create positive change through the Center for Leadership and Social Change’s service-learning initiatives that will make you a better citizen, leader, and person.

Explore your passion by joining a Freshman Interest Group where, with other like-minded freshmen, you’ll take core classes and discover the learning culture at FSU.

Shine in the areas of leadership, internship, service, globalism, and research, and you could be honored by the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society at graduation.
