Presidents

 

Dr Charles N. Millican gave the university its character; he coined the slogans "Reach for the Stars" and "Accent on the Individual". During his tenure, the university acquired its first name, Florida Technological University, its alma mater and the symbols, Pegasus and Knight. From an empty tract of land, Millican oversaw building six academic buildings, utility buildings, an administration building, dorms, and a village center. Enrollment grew to 10,000 and he granted more than 10,000 degrees.
