‘Welcome FSU’ ushers in Summer B with days of events, activities

Welcome FSU has returned for the Summer B term and is offering an array of activities for students.

The university presents Welcome FSU each semester and provides a series of events and programs that serve as the official welcome for all Florida State students.

The program started on June 16 and will continue through June 26. Students can choose from a variety of social, spiritual, well-being, cultural and academic events and programs. They’re encouraged to join in the fun to learn about campus resources, ways to get involved and connected and how to make FSU and Tallahassee their home.

“We hope that all of our students feel connected to and supported by Florida State University,” said Amy Hecht, vice president for Student Affairs. “The FSU experience is one of the reasons why our students are so successful.”

With more than 650 student organizations, seven student government agencies, 54 fraternities and sororities and more than 20 fitness classes, the university offers Welcome FSU as the perfect opportunity for students to find community and complement their academic experience at Florida State.
