The current piece on the FAU reads as follows in the Erlangen city wiki. "In 1742, Count Friedrich of Bayreuth founded a university for the residency town Bayreuth, but due to the rebelliousness of the local students, the university was transferred to Erlangen. Only later did it obtain the name of "Friedrich-Alexander-University" and become a Prussian state university. Famous students of these times were Johann Ludwig Tieck and Wilhelm Heinrich Wackenroder."
The assertion that it became a "Russian state university" does not seem to make any sense and is not confirmed by the university's own online history. I suggest that the phrase "and became a Prussian state university" be stricken. --Tedcrackel (talk) 13:21, 18 March 2008 (UTC) Ted Crackel
Erlangen program 
- I was amazed to find no mention of the Erlangen program in this article, since that's the reason why everyone one earth (except non-mathematicians, maybe) has heard of the place. I've added a paragraph. Michael Hardy (talk) 19:33, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
"It is an annual tradition when leaving the Berch of an evening to go to the world famous Wheelers Pub and sample more traditional beer."
I deleted this because it is simply an add and far from the truth.
