Students Inducted Into Garnet & Gold Society

Florida State University welcomed 58 new inductees into its prestigious Garnet & Gold Scholar Society for fall semester 2019. Of these, 15 students with at least one major in the college were selected for the honor.

Undergraduates in the college make up about 12 percent of the university population but represent more than 25 percent of the inductees into the society.

“I’m very proud – but not surprised – to note that such overwhelming representation carries through in many university-wide honors, as well as in national awards, scholarships and fellowships,” said Dean Tim Chapin.”Our students are some of the most engaged and accomplished on campus.”

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.

“It is an honor to welcome this new group of inductees to the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society,” said Amy Hecht, vice president of Student Affairs. “These students have been eager to excel inside and outside of the classroom, and they deserve our recognition for their involvement in bettering the campus and community.”

To become an inductee of the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society, students must meet the engagement 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.
