Florida State University History

The State University System of Florida began in 1823 when the Territorial Legislature began to create a higher education system. Florida State University is one of the largest and oldest of the 12 institutions of higher learning in the system. In 1825, the federal government set aside two townships for the purpose of establishing higher education institutions in the territory, and on March 3, 1845, the United States Congress added two more townships in an act supplemental to the act admitting Florida as a state to the Union. These townships were given to the state for the purpose of establishing two seminaries of learning, one on the east bank of the Suwannee River and the other on the west bank. The Florida Legislature established the two institutions of learning in a Legislative Act enacted on January 24, 1851, with their first purpose being "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 responsibilities of citizens." The Florida State University was established in 1851 as a result of this act.
