Important Message from your student body president

This message to all students has been approved by Dr. Amy Hecht, Vice President, Division of Student Affairs.
Greeting FSU students,

My name is Nastassia Janvier, and as your Student Body President, it is with great honor and privilege that I welcome you to Florida State University.

Whether this is your first time arriving on campus, or a return to the place we all call home, I want to share with you my excitement for the Fall semester and the start of new beginnings here at FSU.

As we are all aware, with rising cases, and concerning variants, COVID-19 is not yet defeated. As champions of our community, and with great patience and resilience, we must continue to ensure the safety of our student body. This may mean wearing masks when indoors, keeping social distance when possible, and an emphasis on getting vaccinated. The data shows, the best defense against this virus is getting vaccinated. Thanks to Florida State University, not only can you get vaccinated for free, it is now easier than ever to schedule an appointment or even visit a walk-in clinic. You can do this NOW at

This week, the COVID-19 Vaccine clinics are coming to you at 1851 on West Jefferson Street!

  • Wednesday, August 25, 3:00 – 6:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, August 26, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
  • Friday, August 27, 8:30 – 11:30 a.m.
However, as we begin our Fall semester, we stand strong in our commitment to ensuring the best collegiate experience for our student body this year. Which is why I would like to highlight some of the amazing Welcome Week events that will be occurring on campus. These events are free to attend and often times have swag, goodies, and food available for all. Personally, I’m excited for our Welcome Back BBQ that is taking place August 29th at 12pm in Cascades Park. With food, games, music, and more, it’s a must do on our Welcome Week agenda. You can see all of our amazing Welcome Week events and more at I can’t wait to see you there!

Lastly, I would like to emphasize the importance of maintaining balance and mental health as we embark in the new school year. As we return to ‘normal’ it is important to check in on friends, take time for self-care, and reflect on the progress you’ve made and the achievements to come. Florida State University and the Counseling & Psychological Services are committed to the mental health of students and provide counseling and wellness services that can be accessed at

Welcome back to Florida State University. Remain unconquered and Go Noles!
