Seminole Send-Off

Seminole Send-Off

We hope you all have recovered from a fun-filled weekend in Tallahassee and are starting to turn your attention to the Booster Spring Tour events and Seminole Send-Offs. We have submitted requests to the FSU Admissions Department for your student lists and we hope to have those lists no later than the second week of May. As many of you know, decision day is May 1. The Admissions Department will then compile the list of students who intend on going to FSU and will forward us the finalized list. We will then forward the list to you that contain the students’ names, home addresses and phone numbers. We hold on to the email addresses in accordance with FSU’s Privacy Policy and we will handle the Seminole Send-Off eBlasts that need to be sent out.

Please make sure to submit your Send-Off event details 30 days in advance of the event in order to be included in the Alumni Association marketing mix. You can access the Seminole Send-Off marketing request form online.

We recommend Seminole Send-Offs occur before June 18 (before incoming freshman start Summer Session B on June 20). However, Seminole Send-Offs can go through August.

Many clubs have been supporting one another in determining successful ways to market and host this event. If you are interested in connecting with other club leaders for advice, please email Sue Fulford and she will gladly assist you with this.

Here are some examples to get the word out about your Seminole Club’s Send-Off:

  • reach out to local high schools and ask that they include your club’s event in the morning and/or afternoon announcements
  • create a flyer to leave with high school guidance counselors
  • post on community calendars
  • utilize our eBlasts
  • send direct mail invitations
  • make phone calls
  • promote the event via social media

(* Depending on the number of students from your area some of these suggestions may or may not be feasible.)

Please remember the Alumni Association is here to help you generate ideas for your event. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We look forward to hearing stories of the connections you make with these incoming freshman and their families as you welcome them to the Florida State Family!
