COSSPP Students Inducted Into Garnet & Gold Society

by Amy Farnum-Patronis, University Communications

Florida State University welcomed 59 new inductees into its prestigious Garnet & Gold Scholar Society this fall. Fifteen of the new inductees are students with majors in the college.

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.

“We are proud to welcome this new group of inductees to the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society,” said Amy Hecht, vice president for Student Affairs. “They are a wonderful representation of the university, and we are pleased to give them recognition for their involvement bettering the campus and community.”

To become an inductee of the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society, students must meet the engagement area criteria and submit a synthesis reflection project 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 Tuesday, Dec. 4. The inductees from the college are:

Kristen Barry, Political Science
Catherine Batista, Social Science
Cameron Bradley, Political Science
Kiele Cabrera, International Affairs
Lauren Corey, Political Science and Environment and Society
Allison Hanley, Political Science and Religion
Edward Lavant, Political Science
