Seminole Service Day is right around the corner and we wanted to send out a friendly reminder for you to register your Seminole Club’s Service Day project. Projects should be submitted by 5 p.m. EST on Feb. 28. The FSU Alumni Association will be marketing Seminole Service Day via eBlasts to every region of the country where a club is participating. Please make sure that your club is in the marketing mix by registering your Seminole Club Service Day event. Any information submitted or changed after Feb. 28 may not be included in Alumni Association marketing.
Be sure to promote your Club’s project in your local area by using our sample Seminole Service Day press release. You can change the highlighted parts on the sample press release with information about your Club’s Service Day project. If you have any questions, please contact Sue Fulford at 850.644.1148 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visit alumni.fsu.edu/seminoleserviceday for more information.

It’s that time of year again, when FSU is accepting new Seminoles to the family!
Some dates to think about when it comes to planning the club’s scholarship deadline and Seminole Send-off.
- December 16, 2013 – first round of students was accepted
- March 19, 2014 – second round of students gets accepted
- May 1, 2014 – last day to pay $200 Admission Deposit
Reference http://admissions.fsu.edu/freshman/admissions/deadlines.cfm and http://admissions.fsu.edu/nolenotes/1YourNextSteps.cfm every year for these dates.
With students having so long to pay their deposits, it might be best for the Seminole Club to pick a scholarship deadline date after May 1st.
Remember; NEVER GIVE A CHECK TO A STUDENT!
Scholarships are processed two different ways:
- Endowed scholarships
- Send student’s name, FSUID and thank you letter to Gina Bollotta.
- Gina completes appropriate paperwork and sends it over to Lydia Williams in Foundation
- Lydia Williams creates the transmittal files and sends the files to Student Financial Services
- Financial Aid authorizes the release of the funds to the student
- Student Financial Services disburses the funds to the student after drop/add week
- Non-endowed Scholarships
- Club makes check payable to Florida State University
- Club sends check to the following address:
Student Financial Services
1500 University Center A
Tallahassee, FL 32306-2394
- Include a memo with the following information:
- Student’s full name
- Student’s FSUID
- any stipulations (such as the money is to be used only for tuition, only for students who are full time, or is to be split equally between the fall and spring semesters
To help promote the Seminole Club’s scholarship, please send Gina the most up to date version of the scholarship guidelines and application. She can upload the documents and link to the scholarship information on the alumni association’s website (http://one.fsu.edu/page.aspx?pid=3755).
Lastly, since we cannot share email addresses with our clubs, and if the club would like the scholarship promoted to the students, give us a 30 day notice, and fill out an e-blast marketing request (http://one.fsu.edu/page.aspx?pid=3476). We will be more than happy to get the information out to the students.
Tomorrow is the BCS National Championship celebration inside Doak
Campbell Stadium. For those fans attending the celebration, we ask that
you enter the stadium through gates B, C, D, F, G or X on the south side of
the stadium by the Seminole Sport Shop and Unconquered statue. The
stadium gates will open at 11:00 a.m. and the event will begin at 12 p.m.
EST. The event is scheduled to conclude no later than 2 p.m. EST.
Following the celebration of the 2013 BCS National Championship, fans will
be invited on to the field to congratulate the players personally. This meet-and-
greet with the team is not an opportunity for our Seminole Clubs to get
memorabilia signed. Bags will be checked at the gate and there will be a
strict policy in which no memorabilia can be brought into the stadium. The
normal bag policy for home games will be in effect, which limits bags to a
size of 6x12x12. We kindly ask that you please respect this policy. Again,
this event is just to meet the football players and to congratulate them on a
perfect football season!
For those of you who are not able to make it to Tallahassee, you can catch
the celebration live on ESPN3 starting noon.
Thanks everyone & GO NOLES!
March 22, 2014 marks the FSU Alumni Association’s annual national day of service for Seminole Clubs. Clubs are encouraged to choose a community service project and support it while wearing their FSU colors. The idea of Seminole Service Day is to give of your time and talent, not of your treasure. This is NOT a fundraising event and should not require significant financial commitment of club funds. Visit alumni.fsu.edu/seminoleserviceday for more information.
The FSU Alumni Association will be marketing Seminole Service Day via eBlasts to every region of the country where a club is participating. Please make sure that your club is in the marketing mix by registering your Seminole Club Service Day event. Projects should be submitted by 5 p.m. EST on Feb. 28. Any information submitted or changed after that date may not be included in Alumni Association marketing.
To help get some ideas for your Seminole Club’s service project visit our Seminole Service Day 2013 page or check out the Seminole Service Day 2013 photo album.
