Did you know our mission is to advance our university's greatness while enriching the lives of the Seminole Family (psst…that’s you!)?
The FSU Alumni Association has the connections you need for transitioning into the professional world, plus a wealth of opportunities for you to stay engaged with the university you love after graduating.
Seminole Clubs & Chapters
With more than 85 Seminole Clubs and Chapters around the country, no matter where you go after graduation there’s probably a club or chapter near you. These volunteer-run groups plan hundreds of events throughout the year, inspiring alumni to gather for community service, continuing education, networking events and game watching parties - and they have a lot of fun in the process.
The FSU Alumni Association's Notable Noles Award was created to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of Florida State's young alumni under the age of 35. Each recipient must show exceptional achievement and significant contributions to his or her profession, community/society or the university. The recipient must exemplify outstanding professional and personal development either through traditional channels or innovative approaches. Applications for the Notable Noles are available in spring each year.
Commemorative Westcott Brick
Westcott Plaza, home of the legendary Westcott Fountain, is one of the most iconic locations on the Florida State University campus. Surrounding the fountain are thousands of bricks commemorating the Seminole pride of Florida State alumni, friends and family members.
Join the legacy and leave your mark with your own commemorative Westcott brick!
Call the FSU Alumni Association at 850.644.2761 for information about a special package for new grads; get your personalized brick plus a 1-year annual membership for $290.
