Rich History

An outside view of the School of Education in 1922.

School of Education, 1922

You will find in Tallahassee an intelligent, warm-hearted, hospitable people and one

already disposed to regard you with affection.” — Francis Eppes


The words of a champion of Tallahassee ring truer now than when he uttered them 150 years ago. And at the College of Education, they echo through our halls. Here, caring hearts and great minds welcome scholars into a unique environment where they begin their journey leading society toward a better future. As Florida’s oldest continuous site of higher learning, Florida State educates the citizenry of our democracy – the fondest hope of Francis Eppes as instilled in him by his grandfather, President Thomas Jefferson
