In addition, FSU strives to instill the strength, skill, and character essential for lifelong learning, personal responsibility, and sustained achievement within a community that fosters free inquiry and embraces diversity.

The city houses impressive antebellum architecture, parks, and gardens, as well as a vibrant college community comprised of over 70’000 students from the two major and several smaller universities/colleges.
