Founded in 1851 in Tallahassee, the University has more than 41,400 students, with a 93 percent retention rate for freshman and a 79.4 percent graduation rate by sixth year.

From its excellence in the sciences, arts, and humanities to a service-learning mission that is a model for the nation, Florida State University is widely known for offering an outstanding academic environment. FSU is one of only two universities in the state to be designated as a preeminent university for meeting rigorous standards of excellence.

FSU Panama City

In 1972, the Florida Board of Regents directed the University of West Florida to establish a center in Panama City. Classes in elementary education began that summer.

In 1976, the Bay County Commission purchased 17.5 acres between Gulf Coast Community College and the waters of North Bay for use by the center. In 1981, the commission donated an additional 2.54 acres and three buildings.

Florida State University accepted responsibility for the Panama City campus in fall 1982. In 1983, construction of new campus facilities began and were ready for student use in January 1987. The state also deeded 5.62 additional acres to the campus this year.

Full-time, daytime undergraduate programs began fall 2000 and since then the campus has grown. The Bland Conference Center was completed in 2000, the Administrative Services Center in 2007 and the Holley Academic Center in 2009.

The College of Applied Studies, which was established as FSU's newest college in 2010, admitted its first freshman class in fall 2013.

Students enrolled at the Panama City campus are served by more than 40 full-time, resident faculty, plus additional faculty who travel from the Tallahassee campus. Faculty members bring professional backgrounds in the fields they teach, bringing real-world experience, research, and professional connections to the classroom.

The Panama City campus strives to offer a personalized university experience. With a 20:1 student-to-faculty ratio, classes are relatively small, thereby permitting an individualized approach to instruction and facilitating interaction between students and faculty.

The regional campus annually serves approximately 1,850 students, of which 85 percent are undergraduates. More than half of the students are 17 to 25 years old.

FSU Panama City is a veteran-friendly campus. Student veteran enrollment increased by more than 75 percent from spring 2015 through spring 2016.

Undergraduates may complete their entire bachelor's degree at the Panama City campus in the programs offered or may transfer to the Tallahassee campus for other programs.

The online computer science bachelor's degree program, housed at FSU Panama City, is best among both public and private universities by BestColleges.com for 2015.

The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program at FSU Panama City is No. 1 for Behavior Analyst Certification Board pass rates for 2015. Many ABA students get hands-on experience with children with developmental delays and disabilities through the FSU Early Childhood Autism Program (ECAP) clinic.

Divers with the underwater crime scene investigation program have been called out on active cases and have trained divers with the military, FBI, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation, and other professional Public Safety Diver programs throughout the nation.

On average, 75 percent of students at FSU Panama City receive financial aid. There are 85 endowed scholarships, totaling more than $4.8 million, which are awarded to students.

FSU Panama City offers a diverse student life with campus celebrations, networking opportunities, cultural events, and guest lecturers. Student Government Council, registered student organizations and student clubs create unique ways for students to share common interests, create new experiences, and form lifelong friendships.

Carroll University - A Pioneering Institution

Carroll is the first four-year institution in Wisconsin. It was chartered by the Wisconsin Territorial Legislature on January 31, 1846, two years before Wisconsin became a state.

Soon after its founding, Carroll affiliated with the Presbyterian Church and adopted the motto, "Christo et Litteris," which means "for Christ and Learning." The college's early patrons believed that higher education would serve as an instrument for civilizing the wilderness, spreading the Gospel and planting the roots of democracy deep in the prairie soil.

The founders also sought to provide for the prosperity of their children and future generations. Throughout its history, the hallmarks of the "Carroll Experience" have been teaching excellence and individualized attention. That pledge has not changed.

Carroll is proud of its long-standing and mutually beneficial relationship with the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA). The covenant relationship with The Synod of Lakes and Prairies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) affirms a mutual commitment to encourage intellectual curiosity, demonstrate excellence in education, and seek relevance in the quest of knowledge and its application in a complex global society. Carroll values the diverse cultural, multi-national, religious, and ethnic make-up of the entire University community.

The University's educational philosophy is sustained by the four pillars of integrated knowledge, gateway experiences, lifelong skills, and enduring values. These pillars undergird all that Carroll does. They support the "Carroll Experience" and the vision for students to achieve a lifetime of potential.

The Campus Community

Since its humble beginning, with a mere two faculty and five students, Carroll has blossomed into a highly regarded, medium-sized private university with an enrollment of more than 3,000 students. The University is comprised of the College of Health Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences, and The Department of Business, Accounting and Economics (currently working toward school status).

The University awards 12 degrees. Undergraduate degrees: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Music Education, and Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy; Graduate degrees: Master of Business Administration, Master of Education, Master of Science in Exercise Physiology, Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies, Master of Software Engineering, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Master of Occupational Therapy (pre-accreditation review).

Over the past decade, freshman-to-sophomore retention rates have climbed from 72 percent to 82 percent. The graduating class of 2016 consisted of 538 undergraduate students and 152 graduate students.

This past decade also saw the employee FTE count increase by nearly 17 percent. As of fall 2015 there were approximately 233 FTE faculty and 262 FTE staff.

Since 2006, the vibrant teaching and learning environment at Carroll has been enriched by a broad range of new initiatives and campus improvements, including:

* A new Pioneer Core general education curriculum distinguished by its integrated theme of culture across all four years, including a cross-cultural immersion experience prior to graduation

* A new Learning Commons that accommodates nearly 100,000 student visits a year through its programs of supplemental instruction, subject tutoring, Career Services, Math Center, and Writing Center

* A Pioneer Scholars Program that pairs a faculty member with a student for collaborative summer research

* Significant and consistent investment in campus facilities, including the renovation of many historic properties for use as academic buildings, such as the new Business Hall

* Prairie Springs Environmental Educational Center and the Paul Fleckenstein Research Laboratory located adjacent to the University's 65-acre Genesee Field Station

* Three new residence halls that transformed an avenue bordering the campus into an academic village

* A new, art-infused Center for Graduate Studies, conveniently located three miles from campus and near major freeways

* A new, state-of-the art Science Center (all laboratories) scheduled to opened for classes in fall 2016

* Demolition of an existing building with construction of a new academic facility to house nursing and exercise science scheduled for completion in 2018

Beyond the classroom, Carroll seeks to engage students in service programs, clubs and organizations, and athletic programs. Robust student leadership opportunities are offered.

The University fields 22 NCAA Division III men's and women's athletic teams. The Pioneers compete in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin.

Waukesha, Wisconsin

A Strategic Location and Welcoming Community

Carroll is located in Waukesha County, which annually ranks as one of the most highly educated, healthiest, fastest growing, and wealthiest counties in the state of Wisconsin. The campus is nestled in a residential neighborhood, with a 12-minute walk to historic downtown Waukesha.

This charming riverfront city is filled with art galleries, boutique shops, and many unique restaurants and coffee shops. In 2012 the city was ranked in the top 100 for "Best Communities in the United States for Young People" by America's Promise Alliance and "100 Best Places to Live" by Money Magazine.

Historic Waukesha is a short distance from Wisconsin's largest city, Milwaukee, and its spectacular Lake Michigan shoreline. Milwaukee was rated one of the top 15 emerging downtowns in the United States in 2013 by Forbes. This convenient access to urban life provides a multitude of opportunities for internships, volunteering, arts, dining, shopping, museums, sports, and strategic partnerships.

The Four Pillars of the Carroll University Educational Experience

Carroll University's educational philosophy is sustained by the four pillars of integrated knowledge, gateway experiences, lifelong skills and enduring values. These pillars undergird all programs, activities, and plans at Carroll. They support the Carroll experience and the institution's vision for Carroll students to achieve a lifetime of potential.

Integrated Knowledge

Integrated Knowledge is the very foundation of a quality liberal arts program. The Carroll curriculum emphasizes breadth and depth of learning. Our purpose is to encourage students to recognize the interrelationships among ideas. We believe that students with this understanding will continue to learn, grow, and succeed long after they leave the campus.

Lifelong Skills

Lifelong Skills help students prepare for life and work in a world of rapid and constant change. We believe that graduates will continue to evolve and contribute to their communities long after they earn their degrees. To that end, our mission is to help students learn to think critically and creatively, adapt to changing technologies, work efficiently and effectively, collaborate with others, and communicate clear, compelling ideas.

Enduring Values

Enduring Values help students to consider always the impact of their actions on the world around them. We believe that effective leaders draw their inspiration from strong personal value systems. Our goal, therefore, is to offer students multiple opportunities to make decisions and then to reflect upon their consequences.

Gateway Experiences

Gateway Experiences occur both upon entering and upon leaving Carroll University. We believe that our educational responsibility extends beyond the classroom into every aspect of our students' lives. That is why we place a special emphasis on preparing incoming students for college life and on helping graduates make successful transitions into their first jobs, or graduate and professional schools.



Carroll University

Mission Statement



Carroll University provides a superior education, rooted in its Presbyterian and liberal arts heritage, and draws upon its Christian tradition to prepare all students for vocational success, lifelong learning and service in a diverse and global society.
