The Emeritus Alumni Society is a constituency organization of the FSU Alumni Association that was organized to encourage the continuing interest and participation of alumni who have reached emeritus status, e.g., those who graduated from the university 50 or more years ago.

Emeritus Alumni Society logoAll alumni of Florida State University who have reached emeritus status constitute members of the Emeritus Alumni Society. At the 50th anniversary of each succeeding class, the class members are automatically admitted to the society.

The Emeritus Alumni Society has four objectives:

  • To arrange a yearly reunion for all Emeritus Alumni Society members and to encourage members to attend, renew old friendships, and strengthen their ties with the university;
  • To devise ways and means of encouraging the giving of gifts and bequests to the university;
  • To encourage the collection and preservation of significant books, records, letters, pictures, and other memorabilia thatreflect the traditions of Florida State;
  • To consider vital problems of the university and to provide an opportunity for faculty members and others to discuss contemporary issues or new developments in their area of specialty and the effect of those issues on society at large.
