This is an exciting time for Honors alumni and friends! The FSU Honors Program offers multiple opportunities for alumni to stay connected with the FSU Honors community. Our students often ask to be connected to alumni and we think alumni will be gratified to work with these bright and forward-thinking students. We sincerely welcome alumni to connect and stay involved with current FSU honors students and other FSU alumni and have provided information, below, about how to stay up-to-date and involved with the Honors Program. We invite you to explore the Honors Program website to learn more about the current Honors Program and the many ways in which our students engage.

With your support, we will build an even stronger relationship between alumni and current honors students that will ensure the continuity of FSU’s tradition of promoting undergraduate excellence.

If you are interested in learning more about joining the Honors alumni community or how to become more involved, please contact Amy Haggard at or 850-645-0967
