The College of Criminology & Criminal Justice is excited to announce it will be moving to its new home during the summer of 2013! Historic Eppes Hall, originally known as the Education Building, first opened its doors to Florida State College for Women students in 1918 and was the first building on campus devoted entirely to classroom use. The handsome building’s exterior is adorned with a stonework owl, frogs, and Florida’s state seal, which complement its great tradition on campus and the legend after which the building was named: Francis W. Eppes, the founder of Florida State University.

It is with great pride that the Criminology family has adopted historic Eppes Hall. The College has made a significant investment to preserve the building and to add accommodations that will enhance the learning environment for one of the University’s highest ranked academic programs. As Eppes Hall nears its second century of service to the University, the College of Criminology & Criminal Justice looks forward to calling it home and to continuing the legacy of bringing research to life.
