FAMU FORWARD - Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) President Elmira Mangum, Ph.D., has a vision to revitalize our historic campus and help stimulate the redevelopment of Tallahassee’s Southside Adams and Monroe Streets corridor.

That plan includes a new and improved residential facility in the form of a living-learning community (LLC) called the Palmetto North Project.

An LLC is an environment where students are placed together based on a common major, common interest, or common program affiliation assignments. Research suggests that this type of collaborative learning outside the classroom improves academic outcomes for students.

Currently, there are five LLCs on campus. The Palmetto North Project will create 440 new beds and replace the presently closed Palmetto North Housing facility.
