Florida State University will celebrate its status as a preeminent Florida university and all things garnet and gold during FSU Day at the Capitol from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2.

Several of the university’s colleges and academic departments will have displays and information tables set up on the first three floors of the Capitol throughout the event. The highlight of the day will be an outdoor pep rally from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the plaza between the old and new Capitols. It will feature remarks by President John Thrasher, recognition of FSU alumni serving in the Legislature and performances by the FSU Cheerleaders, members of the Flying High Circus and Seminole Sound, a pep band from the College of Music.

On the day before — Monday, Feb. 1, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. — Thrasher and the FSU Student Government Association will co-host a public reception, “Seminole Evening,” on the 22nd floor of the Capitol.

Fans are encouraged to wear garnet and gold apparel during the festivities.
