The University strongly suggests that you find additional ways to spend time besides study. Why? Because you will have more fun—and get a better education—if you do.
Students who participate on campus tend to enjoy college more. Plus, taking advantage of leadership and service opportunities gives you great experience to take with you into your career and community. The University has more than 80 recognized student organizations in which to lead and participate. Plus, there are 24 intramural sports and several co-curricular programs.
To have your officially recognized student organization added to the Student Organizations Page on the main FSU website Student Organizations, please contact Laurie Johnston.
