We’ve noticed that some people seem to have the wrong idea about Florida State University students and alcohol. Some might think that all underage students are drinking even though they’re not legally able to do so, or that they drive drunk without the slightest consideration for anyone’s safety or wellbeing. But the people that have made those assumptions, as it turns out, are completely wrong.

The Real Project is working to challenge misperceptions about FSU students by presenting you with facts. Tasty, hardboiled facts that completely do away with assumptions and guesswork to get down to the real deal and highlight what actual students are actually doing. We’ve surveyed a sample of the FSU population and found that the majority of Florida State students opt for a healthy lifestyle and, when they choose to drink, are drinking responsibly. We have the numbers to prove it.

We aren’t here to pass judgement on your lifestyle. We aren’t going to wag our finger at you and tell you that you’re doing it wrong. What we are here to do is to give you verifiable, genuine information so you can make your own decisions that are based on truth rather than speculation.

So, how do we do it? We start by getting raw information from student surveys. We then analyze that information and present it to you. There’s really not much more to it than that.

If you haven’t already, you’re likely to run across our advertisements in computer labs, residence halls, on billboards, at the FSU movie theater and other various locations on and around campus. We’d like to you make note of the materials next time you see them.
