Florida State's history dates to 1851, when Francis Eppes, grandson of Thomas Jefferson, helped bring higher education to western Florida by leading the drive to build the Seminary West of the Suwannee in Tallahassee. Today's Florida State University, a direct descendant and the oldest continuous site of higher education in the state, is one of the senior members of the 11-university state system in Florida. Whether through outstanding interdisciplinary institutes and centers, world-famous programs in the arts, highly regarded study abroad sites or a service-learning mission that is a model for the nation, Florida State provides unmatched opportunities for students and faculty through challenging academics, cultural discovery and community interaction.
