For six decades, Florida State University has proudly identified itself with the Seminole Tribe of Florida and its unconquered spirit. These courageous and determined people have successfully preserved their culture by resolutely refusing to accept defeat, whether at the hands of the U.S. military or when faced with the unforgiving wilderness of the Florida Everglades.
As a tribute to the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the 50th anniversary of the signing of its constitution, Florida State University has established The Unconquered campaign.
Through this campaign, FSU affirms its commitment to The Unconquered spirit of confidently moving forward, persevering, and striving for excellence – in the classroom, in the game, in life.
The Unconquered campaign is also designed to heighten awareness of Florida State University’s distinguished academic programs, esteemed faculty and accomplished students and alumni.
The goal of the campaign is to encourage those it reaches to learn about the rich history and tradition behind The Unconquered spirit and Florida State University’s continuing commitment to it.
The campaign is financed through private funds, and donations to broaden its reach are encouraged and being actively pursued.

The indomitable nature of the Seminole Tribe of Florida and The Unconquered spirit that lives at Florida State University are the centerpieces of this campaign.
