Florida State University will celebrate its preeminence and all things garnet and gold during the annual FSU Day at the Capitol.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, at the Florida Capitol.

Several of the university’s colleges and academic departments will have displays and information tables set up on the plaza level, second and third floor rotundas from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

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. The event 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 a pep band from the College of Music.

President Thrasher and the FSU Student Government Association will co-host a public reception, “Seminole Evening,” from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 3, at the 22nd floor of the Capitol where student government will recognize some of our legislators.
