Florida State will spread Seminole spirit during annual 'FSU Day At The Capitol'

Alumni and friends of Florida State University can revel in the Garnet and Gold during "FSU Day at the Capitol," the annual celebration of the university's standing in and value to Tallahassee, the state of Florida and the world.

During the 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. event, several of the university's colleges and academic departments will have displays and information tables set up on the first three floors of the new Capitol.

From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Gene Deckerhoff, the "Voice of the Seminoles," will emcee an outdoor pep rally on the plaza between the old and new capitols. The program will feature remarks by President Eric J. Barron and performances by the Florida State cheerleaders, members of the Flying High Circus, and the Marching Chiefs. What's more, Florida State alumni who are serving in the Legislature will be recognized.

The event will take place:

10 A.M. – 2 P.M.

On the day before — Monday, Feb. 6, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. — President Barron and the FSU Student Government Association will co-host a public reception, "Seminole Evening," on the 22nd floor of the new Capitol.
