Five students with majors in the college are among the 16 Florida State University students inducted into the prestigious Garnet & Gold Scholar Society this summer.

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 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 Tuesday, July 30. The inductees from the college are:

Caroline Mooney, Sociology and Criminology

Ashley Falzoi, International Affairs and English

Melanie Flores, International Affairs and Literature

Linnea Blackmore, International Affairs and Political Science

Travis Burhart, Environment and Society

Of the 389 students inducted into the society in the 2018-2019 academic year, 84 had at least one major in the college.
