Seminole Club Reminders

Pearl

Good afternoon club leaders!

As we approach the month of May (which means summer is coming!) it seems like a good time to address a few Seminole Club® reminders. The fiscal year will end on Tuesday, June 30 and in order for a club to receive their yearly stipend, the following annual requirements must be completed:

  • Host or participate in at least one event that is ACADEMIC in nature. (i.e., a Seminole Send-Off, a scholarship dinner, have a professor speak at a club event, table at a college fair, etc.)

Help Welcome FSU’s Newest Seminoles

ServiceDayEach year, Seminole Clubs® and Chapters around the nation coordinate Seminole Send-Off events for incoming first-years, transfers, returning and graduate students as well as parents.

Seminole Send-Offs are social gatherings for students and parents ranging from backyard barbecues to formal receptions. These events are a great opportunity for your club or chapter to meet students, parents and alumni. Our goal is for you to begin building a network with these students and parents within the FSU community at your Seminole Send-Offs.

We hope that you have already begun planning your club or chapter’s send-off event. As a reminder, the FSU Alumni Association is working on a mass mailing to the parents of FSU bound students. The postcard will be dropped in the mail the week of May 4th. Continue reading

Seminole Service Day Follow-up

Seminole-Service-DayYour community is different because FSU Alumni live there!

Members of the FSU community helped make their neighborhoods a better place by participating in the Fourth Annual Seminole Service Day. People from all over the country came together to serve food in soup kitchens and food banks, build homes for the homeless, clean up high schools and beaches, volunteer with the Salvation Army and Ronald McDonald Charities, provide support to children and animals, and so much more.

“It’s so rewarding to see photos roll in from across the country,” says FSU Alumni Association President and CEO Scott Atwell. “Those images are tangible evidence of the Seminole spirit alive in communities from coast to coast — showcasing alumni serving as great ambassadors of our university.” Continue reading

Seminole Send-Offs

sendoffheader14Each summer, Seminoles Clubs® and Chapters across the nation host send-off parties to welcome incoming FSU students to the Seminole Family.

In an effort to make Seminole Send-Offs as successful as possible, the FSU Alumni Association is working on a new communication plan which includes a mass mailing to the parents of FSU bound students. The postcard will be dropped in the mail the week of May 4th. Continue reading
