Tallahassee was designated as the site for the Seminary West of the Suwanee in 1857, absorbing existing Florida Institute. The Seminary became the first state-sponsored college in 1883, and in 1901 it was reorganized into Florida State College with four schools: the College, the College Academy, the School for Teachers, and the School of Music.
