HIstory: FFAU was established in 1961, becoming the fifth university in Florida's State University System. The University opened with a charter class of 850 students in September 1964. Then-U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson received an honorary degree at dedication ceremonies held October 25, 1964. On November 12, 1964, Dr. Kenneth R. Williams was inaugurated as the first president of FAU. The second president, Dr. Glenwood Creech, took over on July 1, 1973. Dr. Helen Popovich became FAU's third president in August 1983. The fourth president, Dr. Anthony James Catanese, came to FAU January 2, 1990 and remained in office until March 2003, when FAU Alumus Frant T. Brogan took office. He remained president of the university until June 2009. John Prichett served as interim president until October 2010 when current president, Mary Jane Saunders became the school's seventh president.
The 850-acre Boca Raton campus, located on a former U.S. Army airfield, was inhabited by a variety of wildlife, including burrowing owls, which are still seen on campus. The University's athletic teams have taken the feisty birds as their mascot. The campus was designated a burrowing owl sanctuary by the Audubon Society on April 23, 1971.
Owls FAU earned the Owl role because... The FAU campus was designated a burrowing owl sanctuary in 1971 by the Audubon Society. The Owl came here because there are not many predators, other than cats, near an airport. The feisty bird, traditionally associated with wisdom and determination, serves as the University's mascot. Also see What is a burrowing Owl?
