Each summer, Seminole Clubs across the nation coordinate Seminole Send-Off parties for incoming students and their parents. Seminole Send-Offs are an opportunity for new Noles to meet current students and alumni to ask questions about life at FSU.
We encourage clubs and chapters to host these festive gatherings and celebrate with incoming students and their parents. Events range from barbecues, brunches, bowling, dessert socials, sporting events, to dinners or more formal receptions.
We recommend Seminole Send-Offs occur before June 25 (before incoming freshman start Summer Session C on June 27). However, Seminole Send-Offs can go through the month of August. For more information about send-offs, download the FSU Alumni Association’s 2016 Seminole Send-Off Guidelines, or contact your club staff coordinator.
If you are hosting a Seminole Send-Off this summer, please complete the Seminole Send-Off Application. Clubs and chapters who have completed the application will receive goodie boxes with items to give out to incoming students and their parents.
The FSU Alumni Association will be sending out postcards to all parents of incoming students, inviting them to attend a send-off in their area. The postcard will direct parents to the Seminole Send-Off web page for more specific club/area information. Parents are scheduled to receive the postcards around Monday, May 23.
If you are interested in hosting a Seminole Send-Off this summer, but do not have all the information ready to complete a Seminole Send-Off Application, please contact Jessica Tanca at firstname.lastname@example.org or 850.645.0213 by Friday, May 20. This will allow your Seminole Club to have a placeholder on the Seminole Send-Off web page when parents begin to receive the Seminole Send-Off postcard.
Best of luck to all of our clubs and chapters hosting Seminole Send-Offs! We know you’ll do a terrific job welcoming others to the Seminole Family!
