Garnet & Gold Scholar Society Inducts 28 COSSPP Students

Published: May 10, 2022


Florida State University welcomes 129 new inductees into its prestigious Garnet & Gold Scholar Society this spring. Of those inducted, 28 students had at least one major in the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy.

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 of the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society, students must meet the engagement-area criteria and submit a synthesis reflection project in their 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 students were inducted into the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society during a special ceremony Wednesday, April 27.
