servicedayheader14
In 2012, the FSU Alumni Association created a national day of service for Seminole Clubs® and Chapters. The goal was to show pride for Florida State University and leave an impression on our local communities. Each year since then Seminole Clubs® and Chapters from across the nation collaborate to give back to their hometowns. We couldn’t be more proud of how our Seminole Clubs® and Chapters have represented FSU in their communities.

This year’s Seminole Service Day will be held on Saturday, March 21, 2015. Clubs and Chapters will gather to dedicate a day of service and show pride in FSU, their community and the nation. Continue reading

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION’S RESPONSE FROM TODAY’S EVENTS

IMG_33293Vigil4Florida State students hold a vigil on Landis Green after the shooting in Strozier library.

Dear Seminole Family,

Today, we are reminded again that Florida State University is a special place. Indeed, it is the rarity of what occurred — albeit disbelief — that reminds us we are part of a caring, nurturing and uplifting institution that instills in its students and alumni a sense of family and home — and a culture of good. There is no answer for the question of “why” an alumnus returned to campus with wicked intent (though mental illness appears to be a factor), yet in the aftermath there are many instances of good in the midst of evil. From the quick response by emergency personnel and alert systems, to the pair of just-checked-out books that protected a student from the shooter’s first bullet, ours is a blessed community of Seminoles.  Continue reading
