Living in Tallahassee

The campus of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University sits atop one of the highest of seven hills in Tallahassee, Florida.

While at FAMU, students and faculty should take advantage of the area’s benefits — and the view. Here’s what Florida’s state capital has to offer.

Tallahassee is in the Florida panhandle, which means great conditions for outdoor activities all year. And the beach and wildlife refuges are one hour away.
