Seminole Service Day

Mark your calendars for March 19, 2016: the Fifth Annual Seminole Service Day!

You’re invited to volunteer with your local Seminole Club® on Saturday, March 19, 2016 as part of the FSU Alumni Association's Fifth Annual Seminole Service Day — a coordinated day of community service. Uphold the garnet and gold by pitching in on a service project in your community.

“For generations, the ideals of our great alumni have been guided by a sense of service,” says FSU Alumni Association President and CEO Scott Atwell. “Seminole Service Day personifies that tradition and it is extraordinarily gratifying to know the work we are doing in our community is being replicated — at that very moment — from coast to coast.”

Want more information on your local club or chapter, including game watching parties and special events in your area? Find a Seminole Club® or Chapter near you.

Seminole Service Day projects are being added every week!
