Stephen F. Austin State University

      public, coeducational institution of higher education in Nacogdoches, Texas, U.S. It comprises the Graduate School, the Arthur Temple College of Forestry, and colleges of applied arts and sciences, business, education, fine arts, liberal arts, and sciences and mathematics. Bachelor's and master's degrees are offered in a range of fields, and doctoral degrees are available in education and forestry. The university maintains an experimental forest, a forestry field station, two farms, and the Forest Resources Institute. The Ralph W. Steen Library is the main book depository on campus. Total enrollment is approximately 11,500.

      As provided by state legislation in 1921, Stephen F. Austin Teachers College was founded in 1923. The campus was built on land that was formerly owned by U.S. Senator Thomas J. Rusk. A notable marker on campus is the historic monument Old Stone Fort (now a museum), which was originally erected in 1779 by Captain Antonio Gil Y'barbo, an early settler of Nacogdoches. The fort was held by various nations and republics and was rebuilt in 1936. Enrollment grew rapidly in the early 1960s, and in 1969 the college was elevated to university status.
