COSSPP celebrates its two summer Garnet & Gold Scholar Society inductees

Published: July 27, 2022


Florida State University welcomes nine new inductees into its prestigious Garnet & Gold Scholar Society, including two students from the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy

The students were inducted into the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society during a virtual ceremony on Tuesday.

Established in 2010, the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society facilitates student involvement and recognizes undergraduate students who excel within and beyond the classroom in at least three of five areas: international experience, internship, leadership, research, and service.

To become an inductee, a student must meet the engagement-area criteria and submit a synthesis reflection project in the final semester before graduation. Participants are recognized during graduation and receive a designation on their official university transcript, both of which make the students more marketable to potential employers or graduate programs.

The COSSPP inductees, along with their academic majors, are:

Jimena Ruiz Castro, Economics and International Affairs

Sarah Jones, Economics and Statistics
