The oldest private college in Florida, Our campus comprises more than 60 buildings and is home to the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in the world. The only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed campus in the world, Florida Southern is a national and international tourist destination. Wright designed and oversaw the construction of 12 structures on campus, including his only planetarium and theater-in-the-round. The campus has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1975. Wright’s architectural legacy continues with the commissioning of Robert A.M. Stern, dean of the Yale School of Architecture and a Wright scholar, to design state-of-art residence halls as well as humanities building for the College. Inspired by the Judeo-Christian principles on which the College was founded, Florida Southern strives to produce global citizens who are prepared to make a lasting impact on their communities. The Cornerstone outlines the standard of behavior that is the foundation of campus life. “Orange groves o’er spread her campus…” Florida Southern College graduates are familiar with the Alma Mater, the anthem sung at graduations and other student gatherings. Florida Southern first used the nickname “Moccasins” or “Mocs” in 1926, shortly after the college’s move to Lakeland in 1922. The Florida Southern College Moccasins are national champions in Division II athletics. Student-athletes participate in 19 NCAA sports as well as water-skiing. The Mocs have won 27 NCAA Division II national championship titles. More than 400 students have been named All-American Athletes.
