Additionally, don’t forget that the Club Leadership Conference is right around the corner. While a date has not been set for the Spring Game, we will get all the information regarding the Leadership Conference to you as soon as a date for the game is confirmed.

Thank you for all you do to make our FSU Clubs and Chapters the best in the nation!
