State University

Main entrance to Dodd Hall, built in 1925. Dodd Hall
Dodd Hall
was the location of Florida
Florida
State's library until 1956. Rendered in gold leaf, is the phrase “The half of knowledge is to know where to find knowledge.”

In 1819 the Florida
Florida
Territory was ceded to the United States by Spain as an element of the Adams–Onís Treaty.[21] The Territory was conventionally split by the Appalachicola or later the Suwannee rivers into East and West areas. Florida
Florida
State University is traceable to a plan set by the 1823 U.S. Congress to create a system of higher education.[22] The 1838 Florida
Florida
Constitution codified the basic system by providing for land allocated for the schools.[23] In 1845 Florida became the 27th State of the United States, which permitted the resources and intent of the 1823 Congress regarding education in Florida
Florida
to be implemented. The Legislature of the State of Florida, in a Legislative Act of January 24, 1851, provided for the establishment of the two institutions of learning on opposite sides of the Suwannee River. The Legislature declared the purpose of these institutions to be "the instruction of persons, both male and female, in the art of teaching all the various branches that pertain to a good common school education; and next to give instruction in the mechanic arts, in husbandry, in agricultural chemistry, in the fundamental laws, and in what regards the rights and duties of citizens." [24] By 1854 the City of Tallahassee had established a school for boys called the Florida Institute, with the hope that the State could be induced to take it over as one of the seminaries. In 1856, Tallahassee Mayor Francis W. Eppes again offered the Institute's land and building to the Legislature. The bill to locate the Seminary in Tallahassee passed both houses and was signed by the Governor on January 1, 1857. On February 7, 1857, the first meeting of the Board of Education of the State Seminary West of the Suwannee River
Suwannee River
was held, and the institution began offering post-secondary instruction to male students. Francis Eppes served as President of the Seminary's Board of Education for eight years.[24] In 1858 the seminary absorbed the Tallahassee Female Academy, established in 1843, and became coeducational.[25] The West Florida
Florida
Seminary was located on the former Florida
Florida
Institute property, a hill where the historic Westcott Building
Westcott Building
now stands. The location is the oldest continuously used site of higher education in Florida. The area, slightly west of the state Capitol, was formerly and ominously known as Gallows Hill, a place for public executions in early Tallahassee.[26][27] Civil War and Reconstruction In 1860–61 the legislature started formal military training at the school with a law amending the original 1851 statute.[28] During the Civil War, the seminary became The Florida
Florida
Military and Collegiate Institute. Enrollment at the school increased to around 250 students with the school establishing itself as perhaps the largest and most respected educational institution in the state.[28] Cadets from the school defeated Union forces at the Battle of Natural Bridge
Battle of Natural Bridge
in 1865, leaving Tallahassee as the only Confederate capital east of the Mississippi River
Mississippi River
not to fall to Union forces.[29][30] The students were trained by Valentine Mason Johnson, a graduate of Virginia Military Institute, who was a professor of mathematics and the chief administrator of the college.[31] After the fall of the Confederacy, campus buildings were occupied by Union military forces for approximately four months and the West Florida
Florida
Seminary reverted to its former academic purpose.[32] In recognition of the cadets, and their pivotal role in the battle, the Florida
Florida
State University Army ROTC cadet corps displays a battle streamer bearing the words "NATURAL BRIDGE 1865" with its flag. The FSU Army ROTC is one of only four collegiate military units in the United States with permission to display such a pennant.[33] First state university

lab in 1900, at what was then known as the West Florida Seminary

In 1883 the institution, now long officially known as the West Florida Seminary, was organized by the Board of Education as The Literary College of the University of Florida. The legislative act passed in 1885, bestowing upon the institution the title of the University of Florida, has never been repealed.[24] Under the new university charter, the seminary became the institution's Literary College, and was to contain several "schools" or departments in different disciplines.[34] However, in the new university association the seminary's "separate Charter and special organization" were maintained.[35] Florida
Florida
University also incorporated the Tallahassee College of Medicine
Medicine
and Surgery, and recognized three more colleges to be established at a later date.[34] The Florida
Florida
Legislature recognized the university under the title "University of Florida" in Spring 1885, but committed no additional financing or support.[24][36] Without legislative support, the university project struggled. The institution never assumed the "university" title,[36] and the association dissolved when the medical college relocated to Jacksonville later that year.[34] However, the West Florida
Florida
Seminary, as it was still generally called, continued to expand and thrive. It shifted its focus towards modern-style post-secondary education, awarding "Licentiates of Instruction", its first diplomas, in 1884,[24] and became Florida's first liberal arts college in 1897.[24] and by 1891 the Institute had begun to focus on modern post-secondary education; seven Bachelor of Arts degrees were awarded that year.[24] In 1901 it became Florida
Florida
State College, a four-year institution organized in four departments: the College, the School for Teachers, the School of Music, and the College Academy. Florida
Florida
State College was empowered to award the degree of Master of Arts, and the first master's degree was offered in 1902. That year the student body numbered 252 men and women, and degrees were available in classical, literary and scientific studies. In 1903 the first university library was begun.[24] Buckman Act

Florida
Florida
State College for Women, c. 1930

The 1905 the Florida
Florida
Legislature passed the Buckman Act, which reorganized the Florida
Florida
college system into a school for white males (University of the State of Florida), a school for white females ( Florida
Florida
Female College later changed to Florida
Florida
State College for Women), and a school for African Americans (State Normal and Industrial College for Colored Students).[37] The Buckman Act was controversial, as it changed the character of a historic coeducational state school into a school for women. An early and major benefactor of the school, James Westcott III (1839–1887), willed substantial monies to the school to support continued operations. In 1911 his estate sued the state educational board contending the estate was not intended to support a single-sex school. The Florida
Florida
Supreme Court decided the issue in favor of the State of Florida
Florida
stating the change in character (existing from 1905 to 1947) was within the intent of the Westcott will.[38] By 1933 the Florida
Florida
State College for Women had grown to be the third largest women's college in the United States and was the first state women's college in the South to be awarded a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, as well as the first university in Florida so honored.[39][40] Florida
Florida
State was the largest of the original two universities in Florida, even during the period as the college for women until 1919.[41] " Florida

after World War II stressed the state university system to the point that a Tallahassee Branch of the University of Florida
Florida
(TBUF) was opened on the campus of the Florida State College for Women with the men housed in barracks on nearby Dale Mabry Field.[24] By 1947 the Florida
Florida
Legislature returned the FSCW to coeducational status and designated it Florida
Florida
State University.[42] The FSU West Campus

land and barracks plus other areas continually used as an airport later became the location of the Tallahassee Community College. The post-war years brought substantial growth and development to the university as many departments and colleges were added including Business, Journalism (discontinued in 1959), Library Science, Nursing
Nursing
and Social Welfare.[43] Strozier Library, Tully Gymnasium and the original parts of the Business building were also built at this time. Student activism
Student activism
and racial integration

Student protest in Tallahassee – 1970

During the 1960s and 1970s Florida
Florida
State University became a center for student activism especially in the areas of racial integration, women's rights and opposition to the Vietnam War. The school acquired the nickname "Berkeley of the South"[44] during this period, in reference to similar student activities at the University of California, Berkeley. The school is also purported to have originated the 1970s fad of "streaking", said to have been first observed on Landis Green.[45][46] After many years as a segregated university, in 1962 Maxwell Courtney became the first African-American undergraduate student admitted to Florida
Florida
State.[47] In 1968 Calvin Patterson became the first African American player for the Florida
Florida
State University football team.[48] Florida
Florida
State today has the highest graduation rate for African American students of all universities in Florida.[49] On March 4, 1969 the FSU chapter of Students for a Democratic Society, an unregistered university student organization, sought to use university facilities for meetings. The FSU administration, under President Stanley Marshall, subsequently decided not to allow the SDS the use of university property and obtained a court injunction to bar the group. The result was a protest and mass arrest at bayonet point of some 58 students in an incident later called the Night of the Bayonets.[50] The university Faculty Senate later criticized the administration's response as provoking as an artificial crisis.[51] Another notable event occurred when FSU students massed in protest of student deaths at Kent State University
Kent State University
causing classes to be canceled.[52] Approximately 1000 students marched to the ROTC building where they were confronted by police armed with shotguns and carbines. Joining the all-night vigil, Governor Claude Kirk
Claude Kirk
appeared unexpectedly with a wicker chair and spent hours, with little escort or fanfare, on Landis Green discussing politics with protesting students.[52]

LGBTQ
LGBTQ
activism at FSU is unusual in that it was actually a fight against the school itself. The Pride Student Union (PSU), originally LGBSU, was founded in 1969 to represent LGBTQ
LGBTQ
students.[53][54] In 1980 a gay male named William Wade won the title of Homecoming Princess under the pseudonym "Billy Dahling" causing controversy.[55][56][57] In 2006 the Union Board added sexual orientation to its nondiscrimination policy causing several student organizations to be zero-funded for noncompliance. Christian Legal Society had the student senate reverse the freezing after threatening a lawsuit[58][59] which resulted in the founding of The Coalition for an Equitable Community (CFEC) to advocate for an inclusive nondiscrimination policy.[60][61] In 2008 CFEC filed suit with the FSU Student Supreme Court against the Union Board for failing to uphold the policy though they ruled they lacked jurisdiction after hearing the case.[62] In November 2009 CFEC placed an editorial in the FSView to provide perspective on the issue.[63] In June 2010 the University Board of Trustees passed a resolution protecting students based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.[64] In March 2002, FSU students pitched "Tent City" on Landis Green for 114 days to compel the university to join the fledgling Worker's Rights Consortium
Consortium
(WRC).[65] The Worker Rights Consortium
Consortium
(WRC) is an independent watchdog group that monitors labor rights worldwide. At the time, FSU earned 2 million dollars a year from merchandising rights. FSU administration initially refused to meet with the WRC, reportedly for fear of harming its relationship with Nike.[65] At the outset of the protest 12 activists were arrested for setting up their tents outside the "free speech zone." The protest ended in July, when administration met student demands and met with the WRC.[65] 21st century

Florida
State University has a nationally recognized honors program.[93] The University Honors Office supports the university's long tradition of academic excellence by offering two programs, the University Honors Program and the Honors in the Major Program, which highlight the institution's strengths in teaching, research, and community service. The Honors Program also offers special scholarships, internships, research, and study abroad opportunities. Admission into the University Honors Program is by invitation only. The average academic profile of students that were offered honors invitations in 2015 was as follows: 4.2 weighted GPA; 32 ACT composite; 2080 SAT
SAT
total. For the Honors in the Major Program students, the University Honors Office requires that prospective students have at least sixty semester hours and at least a 3.2 cumulative FSU GPA.[94] The Honors program offers students housing in Landis Hall and Gilchrist Hall. Landis Hall is the traditional home of Honors students since 1955, which is situated on Landis Green at the heart of FSU's main campus. Gilchrist Hall also houses Honors students and is conveniently located adjacent to Landis Hall. The two halls enjoy a shared study which allows Honors students living in either residence hall to easily gather with classmates and friends. Scholarships The Presidential Scholars Program is the premier undergraduate scholarship program at Florida
Florida
State University. The program provides four years of support and is open to high school seniors who are admitted into Florida
Florida
State University's Honors Program. The total award package for Presidential Scholars is $31,200, plus an out-of-state tuition waiver. This includes the $9,600 Presidential Scholarship distributed over four years and a $9,600 Admissions Scholarship distributed over four years. It also includes $12,000 for educational enrichment opportunities including international experiences such as Study Abroad and Global Scholars, research and creative projects, service learning projects or public service, internships, and entrepreneurial development.

The university's colors are garnet and gold.[178] The colors of garnet and gold represent a merging of the university's past. While the school fielded a football team as early, or earlier than 1899,[179] in 1902, 1903 and 1905 the team won football championships wearing purple and gold uniforms.[24][180] The following year, the college student body selected crimson as the official school color. The administration in 1905 took crimson and combined it with the recognizable purple of the championship football teams to achieve the color garnet. After World War II the garnet and gold colors were first worn by a renewed football team in a 14–6 loss to Stetson University

Florida
State University is one of two collegiate schools in the country to have a circus.[206] The FSU Flying High Circus
FSU Flying High Circus
is a three-ring circus that has performances during the Fall semester (for Parents' Weekend) and Spring semester (their annual homeshow). The circus, founded in 1947 by Jack Haskin, in an extracurricular activity under the Division of Student Affairs that any FSU student may join. Student performers in the circus practice daily, much like any other school sport. The performers help rig their equipment and sew their own costumes. Performances occur in April under the Big Top circus tent.[207] Student government The Florida
Florida
State University Student Government Association is the governing body of students who attend Florida
Florida
State University, representing the university's nearly 43,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students. The university's student government currently operates on a yearly $12.86 million budget, one of the largest student government budgets in the United States, and the money is allocated by the Finance Committee of the Legislative Branch.[208] The student government was established in 1935 and consists of executive, judicial, and legislative branches.[209] The student government executive branch is led by the Student Body President and includes the Student Body Vice President, Student Body Treasurer, six agencies, seven bureaus, and executive secretaries within the Executive Office of the President. The Student Senate is the legislative branch, and is composed of 80 senators who serve one-year terms. The student body elects the first half during each spring semester and the remaining half during the fall semester. The senators elect a Senate President and Senate President Pro Tempore once a year, after the fall election, to lead the Student Senate.[210] The student government judicial branch has two major components: the Supreme Court of the Student Body (headed by a Chief Justice) and all elections related officials such as the Supervisor of Elections and the Elections Commission. The Supreme Court consists of seven second or third-year students at the FSU College of Law nominated by the Student Body President and confirmed by the Student Senate.[211] Each justice serves a "life-time" term, which extends through the individual justice's graduation and insulates the court from the politics of student government. The Chief Justice may appoint a marshal and clerk. The election commission is also composed of Florida State University College of Law students and it adjudicates all student government election complaints. The commission has five members, one of whom also serves as the commission chairman. Campus

WFSU Public Broadcast Center

The campus newspaper, the FSView & Florida
Florida
Flambeau, is 100 years old now and publishes weekly during the summer and semiweekly on Mondays and Thursdays during the school year following the academic calendar. After changing hands three times in 13 years, the FSView was sold to the Tallahassee Democrat in late July 2006, making it part of the Gannett
Gannett
chain.[215] This exchange was allowed because the FSView had been for a long time a for-profit business that was not legally associated with Florida
Florida
State University. Since most collegiate newspapers are supported by their colleges, this was also among the first times that a major corporation had acquired a college newspaper. FSU operates two television stations, WFSU and WFSG,[216] and three radio stations, WFSU-FM, WFSQ-FM and WFSW-FM.[217] FSU operates a fourth radio station, WVFS
WVFS
(V89, "The Voice", or "The Voice of Florida State"), as an on-campus instructional radio station staffed by student and community volunteers.[218] WVFS
