The Suwannee Room is a popular dining hall on the Florida State University campus located in one of the older buildings and it has a long history dating back to when FSU was the Florida State College for Women. It was refurbished and reopened in 2006 as a more modern eating establishment, but this display located in the entrance hall pays tribute to its past. On the left, you can see an example of an apron clad young college student serving a family style meal as a way to fund her college education. Behind her is a picture of what the Suwannee Room looked like in 1914. The right side of the display shows you what the Suwannee Room and its patrons look like now. Quite a contrast!
