FSU has tons of great things to offer. Unfortunately, you usually don't learn about them until you're about to graduate. Use this chart to find all the best things about being a seminole.
Most people know about the main libraries. But they're not the best places to study.
- Johnston Building Study Rooms: One of my all-time favorites. No one is going to bother you here
- Booking Study Rooms: Step-by-step guide to book a study room at Strozier or Dirac
- Tallahassee Public Library: With so few noisy people, you are guaranteed to get your work done
- The bridge lounge above the FSU union is always a great place to study.
- Check out our Cheap Drink Specials guide!
Let's face it, we all need a nap on campus from time to time.
- Johnston Building study rooms: No one is going to bother you here
- Goldstein Library: Lots of secluded nooks
- If you've got a hammock, string one up in the trees on Landis Green for a suspended snooze
- Basement of Strozier (far back left!)
- Meditation Room: Anyone can sign-in to the quiet meditation room on the 3rd Floor of the Globe (110 S Woodward Ave, Tallahassee, FL 32306)
to use as a place to find peace, relax, pray, and/or reflect.

Tickets to high-demand games can be claimed by redeeming "Student Spear It" points. Points are earned by going to certain events (like women's basketball games), and by your class designation (Senior vs Freshman).
Other people strongly recommend becoming a Student Booster! It gives you an additional 500 points, an Express Line to enter the stadium on game day, and is only $25.
500 points is enough to allow a Freshman to get as much access to games as a Junior!
- FSU Rez: A beach-front property with kyak, sailboat, canoe rentals, a high-ropes course, disc golf course, ping pong, foose ball, and a rock-wall
- FSU Circus: Yep, a freaking circus. You can take official classes, join th club and train, or just see a show
- Planetarium: Go in and see the stars. FOR FREE!
- Crenshaw Lanes: A freaking bowling alley right on campus
- Club Downunder: Music venue/bar right in the union
- V89: Yep, FSU has their own radio station. Linked site tells you how you can join the station.
- Lynda: Basically a free guide to learn anything; programming, design, CAD, you name it. Find it in your MyFSU Student Center.
- Movie Theater: The Student Life Cinema shows movies almost every day of the week, free to students. They also host regular gaming tournmanets in their cyber cafe.
- Museum in Sarasota: FSU owns the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, FL. It contains an art museum, circus museum (of course), and Ca' D'Zan which is one of the largest houses in Florida with 56 rooms. FSU students/staff/faculty get free entrance.
- Art Center: Make art! It's free or cheap for students depending on what you want to do. They also have a frame shop that's far more affordable than anywhere else in town if you want to get stuff framed.
- Theme Park Ticket Discounts: FSU students get discounted tickets to Disney World, Busch Gardens, and Sea World thanks to the Student Union.
- Meditation Room: Anyone can sign-in to the quiet meditation room on the 3rd Floor of the Globe to use as a place to find peace, relax, pray, and/or reflect.
- Rent-Free Housing: Southern Scholarship Foundation, yeah the tan & green houses over on Stadium Dr. across from the soccer fields, are scholarship houses where 290 students in Tallahassee from FSU, FAMU & TCC live RENT-FREE.
Part-Time Job Fair: It's held the first week of each Fall and Spring semester. Lots of on-campus and some off-campus employers will be there looking for new part time employees.
The Career Center shows job listings available for students and they can help you with your resume or preparing for an interview.

*Proper Channel guide to Bus routes and schedules*
FSU students, faculty, and visitors can choose between 8 bus routes to take to get to an on or off campus location. Hours of operation vary according to bus route and semester (i.e. fall, spring, summer). Keep in mind that Seminole Express buses do not run when classes are not in session.
And remember there is NO FARE REQUIRED on any StarMetro regular citywide route with a valid FSU student or faculty/staff ID. All routes, all days.
