Inscription.  The Mode L. Stone Building, home of the College of Education, was constructed in 1978 and named for the educator who arrived at Florida State in 1946 and served as dean of the College from 1956 to 1967.

A 26,000-square-foot addition was completed in 2008, in conjunction with renovation of the existing building. The addition and renovations incorporate the exterior Gothic style prevalent across Florida State’s campus and add state-of-the-art classrooms, labs, offices and common areas while showcasing sweeping staircases, a grand atrium and spectacular artwork. The building has been recognized for architectural excellence.
 
Erected by Florida State University.
