Florida Agriculture & Mechanical University, one of the nation's largest historically Black universities is found on the highest of Tallahassee's seven hills. Established in 1887, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) was founded as the State Normal College for Colored Students. Today, as one of 103 historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the nation FAMU remains the only HBCU in Florida's 12-member state university system. FAMU offers 97-degree programs and has an enrollment of more than 10,000 students. At the center of campus the Eternal Flame has burned brightly as a symbol of Rattler excellence since Time magazine's selection of FAMU as the 1997-1998 College of the Year. The newest monument to grace the campus of the university is an 8-foot high coiled rattler sculpture by the artist Brad Cooley, Jr., having made its debut Nov. 2020 on Wahnish Way in front of the new student services building. These locations are a must-see on any visit to FAMU.
