Dear Fellow Seminoles,
The 2018 legislative session started on January 9 and Florida State University’s many attributes are being shared with state lawmakers.
Support from the legislature in previous years, along with the diligence and hard work of everyone connected to Florida State, has propelled our upward movement in the national academic standings.
Florida State’s reputation is further enhanced by our strong graduation rates, which place us in the Top 25 among public universities for its four-year graduation rate. Currently, over 80 percent of FSU students graduate within six years, but recently the focus has been on improving the four-year graduation rate, which is now 65.3 percent—a 5-percent increase over the previous year’s cohort.
Florida State University certainly has an impressive story to tell, and with your help we can amplify these successes to state legislators during the session. Please take a moment to view the updated talking points on this website, as well as the list of our 2018 legislative priorities.
Thank you for your willingness to lend your voice on our behalf. We heartily appreciate your support.
