Just stay away from the football players, and you should be okay.

Your experience is not even close to typical, unless you are a drug dealer / live with drug dealers.
Might be so. I can only speak to personal experience. When a classmate is kidnapped, robbed, and murdered from a gas station, it leaves a negative impression of the area.

I admittedly lived in the 'student ghetto' areas around the school for the sake of access to the bus line. I've heard Killearn and other outlying areas are better of course, but those are outside the price range and acceptable distance from the school for a college kid. That said, if you live in Tallahassee chances are good you will be spending a large amount of time in the core of the city near the school/government, which are the crux of the economy there. Either work or entertainment are going to force you to spend time in what I would consider a very dangerous area, even by Florida standards.

Oh, and as for living with drug dealers...funny story. I had a neighbor ask me for a cup of milk once. He came back a few minutes later to return the container, and to pay me back for the milk...with a handful of weed. So yeah, I guess I did live around drug dealers. Not by choice, though!
