Florida State University welcomed 20 new members into the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society this summer.
Established in 2010, the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society facilitates involvement and recognizes undergraduate students who excel within and beyond the classroom in at least three of five areas: international experience, internship, leadership, research and service.
