What are you talking about? Half of FSU freshman girls are from FL. And if you mean for next year, there’s many more months for kids to commit to swim. Additionally, there are a ton of great DI and DII swim programs in FL. Check them out! Let your child find their best fit.

I actually think the facilities are a major reason few FL kids are interested in swimming at FSU. Yes, they’re nice, but they are off campus and outside. Tallahassee average Jan temp is 51. Not appealing for FL kids. UWF and UF also have beautiful facilities- on campus and indoors. And FGCU, FAU, FIU, and U Miami also have beautiful facilities -on campus and outside, where the average Jan. temp. Is 71.
