Universities in Fayetteville
We come from a proud and distinguished history. FSU is the second oldest state assisted institution in North Carolina, founded by seven extraordinary black men in 1867 to provide education for black children.
That 'students-first' philosophy is a big reason why the U of A is consistently ranked among the nation's top public research universities and best values. We work hard to ensure a low student-to-faculty ratio that promotes plenty of personal attention and mentoring opportunities.
