FSU Alumni Association to celebrate alumni through weekend of awards and events

The Florida State University Alumni Association will recognize distinguished alumni through a series of events starting Thursday, April 13, 2023.

As a result of campus closures due to Hurricane Ian, the FSU Alumni Association was unable to celebrate its 74th annual Homecoming events last fall. The Young Alumni Awards, Alumni Awards Gala and National Black Alumni Reunion will take place this spring to honor alumni and faculty for their diligent work throughout the FSU community and beyond.

“We are thrilled to welcome alumni back to campus for a Spring Weekend and finally celebrate our incredible alumni and faculty who missed the opportunity to be honored last fall,” said Julie Decker, president and CEO of the FSU Alumni Association. “This week serves as a reminder of the prominent alumni that Florida State produces and their commitment to the university’s tradition of excellence. We invite all alumni, students and friends to join us in recognizing their achievements.”
