About Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University

Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University is a four-year, coeducational, public research university located in Tallahassee, Florida. It was established in 1890. When the school relocated in 1891, students and administrators arrived in a rural landscape with an abundance of snakes. Today, the university’s teams compete in NCAA Division I-AA athletics are known as the Rattlers. The school colors of green and orange were also chosen based on geography – the green was inspired by Florida’s lush shrubbery and the orange by its abundance of citrus. Currently, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University has 11,180 undergraduate students and an additional 2,204 graduate students.

Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) is an 1890 land-grant institution dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, resolution of complex issues and the empowerment of citizens and communities. The University provides a student-centered environment consistent with its core values. The faculty is committed to educating students at the undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and professional levels, preparing graduates to apply their knowledge, critical thinking skills and creativity in their service to society. FAMU’s distinction as a doctoral/research institution will continue to provide mechanisms to address emerging issues through local and global partnerships. Expanding upon the University’s land-grant status, it will enhance the lives of constituents through innovative research, engaging cooperative extension, and public service. While the University continues its historic mission of educating African Americans, FAMU embraces persons of all races, ethnic origins and nationalities as life-long members of the university community.
