Florida Atlantic University - Owls - Owls

Some universities measure greatness in decades and centuries. Florida Atlantic University measures it with every student who earns a degree, every researcher who makes a discovery and every community that is transformed. At FAU's dedication ceremony in 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson challenged the University's pioneers: "It is time now...for a new, adventurous, imaginative, courageous breakthrough for a new revolution in education in America." With those words, FAU opened its doors as the first public university in southeast Florida and the first in America designed for upper division students only. Since day one, FAU has pushed the bounds of higher education. Now, 50 years later, the University serves more than 30,000 freshmen, transfers and graduate students at sites throughout its six-county service region in southeast Florida. People from every walk of life find a place at FAU. Students choose from more than 180 degree programs, faculty researchers utilize more than 40 research centers and the community engages hundreds of cultural and educational events every year.

The university was named one of the 146 "Best Southeastern Colleges" in the United States by the Princeton Review. The Review also recognized FAU's business program by naming the College of Business to their list of "Best 296 Business Schools" for 2009. For 2011, Florida Atlantic was ranked 249th in the nation by Washington Monthly.The magazine based its rankings on the following three criteria: "how well a university performs as an engine of social mobility (ideally helping the poor to get rich rather than the very rich to get very, very rich), how well a university does in fostering scientific and humanistic research, and how well a university promotes an ethic of service to country." The university was also ranked 28th in the United States and fourth in Florida by The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine for awarding 738 bachelor's degrees to Hispanic students during the 2006–2007 academic year.
