  • 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
