FSU Legacy Walk through Campus

Florida State University has been paving the way since 1851. In October 2004, the university unveiled the first of four phases of Legacy Walk, a historical tour of campus that focuses on its architecture, sculpture and green spaces. The first segment of the Walk, the Eppes Phase, is named for the founder of the University, Francis Eppes. Encompassing the easternmost portion of campus, the Walk begins at the Eppes statue located near the entrance at the Westcott Building. The path is embedded with symbols and lined with bricks and banners guiding visitors past many of the oldest and most historic buildings on campus before terminating at Dodd Hall. Raised brick podia containing maps and important information about people and events are located at intervals along the walk.

The second phase, the Student Legacy Walk, begins at the Landis Green Legacy Fountain Sculptures. As the name suggests, the Student Legacy Walk passes through the core of student activity, highlighting student leaders of the past and serving as a living legacy to current and future students. Lined with banners depicting campus life, the Student Legacy Walk guides visitors from Landis Green north toward the Bellamy Building, around to newly renovated grounds behind the Crenshaw Building and Moore Auditorium, and circles the Integration Statue before wrapping around the Student Services Building and ending back at Landis.
