Biographical / Historical
Florida Agricultural College (FAC) was established in Lake City, Florida in 1884. FAC was the first land grant college in the state of Florida, and as such received federal and state funding. Because of its land grant status, the FAC also had an agricultural experiment station as a part of the college. FAC was a co-educational school, with a military component required for all male students. In 1903, the FAC’s name was briefly changed to the University of Florida.
In 1905, the Buckman Act reorganized higher education in the state of Florida, and four of the state’s institutions were merged to form the University of the State of Florida (now the University of Florida). The four institutions that were merged were the East Florida Seminary, the Florida Agricultural College (University of Florida at Lake City), the St. Petersburg Normal and Industrial School, and the South Florida Military College.
