Celebrate 50 years of growth
This issue of the Florida State Times is devoted to telling about Florida State's great journey of the last 50 years.
Just after World War II, Florida State College for Women was still a small, women only school with very high standards (A University of Florida president had complained that FSCW offered Greek as well as Latin, while UF offered only Latin). Then, almost overnight, the school was transformed by the arrival of men and all the changes they brought.
Expo set to celebrate research and creativity
Time does have a way of changing things. Surely the five decades that have come and gone since Florida State officially became a co-ed university have wrought enormous changes on campus as any visiting alum can easily see.
Opening at noon April 4 will be the Florida State University Research & Creativity Expo at the all-new, $122-million University Center. This three-day extravaganza is going to be the largest and most comprehensive academic outreach effort in campus history
FSU's Fine Arts: hard work, high ranking
Fine arts students at Florida State whether music, dance, theater, film or visual arts work hard, even by university standards. They have to. The best of them are preparing for a lifetime of striving endless practice with uncertain rewards.
And they're doing it in a demanding milieu. Four of FSU's five fine-arts programs are ranked in the top ten in the nation.
Sciences take off at post-war FSU
It was the beginning of a new era.
World War II had ended with the Allies victorious, Hitler dead and Japan soundly defeated by a new, frighteningly powerful weapon of science.
Grads build political clout in Legislature
Doak Campbell Stadium's recent $90-million facelift is an obvious symbol for the rise of Florida State football.
But it also serves as powerful testament to the political maturity of FSU alumni in the state Legislature.
Laureates add energy, prestige to FSU faculty
Few Southeastern schools can boast of even one Nobel laureate on the faculty.
Florida State University has had five.
With less than 50 years of graduate science programs under its belt, FSU has already hired more Nobel Prize winners than any other college or university in the Southeast.
