About FAMU

 

College of Law FrontFlorida A&M University is a comprehensive, public, co-educational and fully accredited land-grant university offering a broad range of instruction, research and service programs at the undergraduate, graduate and professional levels. The main campus occupies over 419 acres located on the highest of seven hills in the capital city of Tallahassee. The 13 schools and colleges are committed to excellence in instruction, learning and research. 

FAMU’s selection as the 1997 College-of-the-Year by the Time Magazine/Princeton Review College Guide was only the crowning achievement among a series of nationally recognized honors. 

Not only is FAMU the largest single historically black university campus in terms of enrollment, it is also the number one grantor of baccalaureate degrees to African Americans and one of the country’s leading enrollers of National Merit Achievement Scholars. FAMU’s growing reputation for excellence was recently recognized by Black Enterprise magazine, which named it the Best Public University in America for Black Students.
