ATTENTION STUDENT LEADERS,

Student leaders are on the forefront of change and positive action on this campus. Are you interested in becoming a persons of influence and carrying heightened responsibility on this campus? There is a unique and exciting experience to help you grow as a student leader. Never heard of leadership? This is also for you!

The Office of Student Development is offering a Student Lead (by two Lead Council members) Leadership Series known as the Emerge Leadership Series. This is the first of a three tier leadership experience.

The series will start September 30th from 4-6pm in the Hammond Main Lounge! The following dates are:

Wednesday October, 7 4-6pm
Wednesday October, 14 4-6pm
Wednesday October, 21 4-6pm

This 4 week institute is designed to help students develop and understand their own personal leadership skills and styles. The hope is that students walk away with more self-confidence, hone their leadership abilities, and have a readiness to take an active leadership role on campus and in your daily lives!

If you are still interested in partaking in this amazing series please
contact [email protected] ASAP.

If you still have any questions about Emerge please feel free to let me or Juan know and I/we will be more then happy to answer any and all questions that you may have!

Attention Student Leaders,

Below is the invitation for the May 7th BBQ, aka, President and Mrs. Antonucci’s celebration.

I would like to encourage our student leaders to join us on the quad to celebrate the Antonucci’s tenure and accomplishments over the past 12 years!

In addition, I am looking for 8-10 students to volunteer. We need help with distributing the free t-shirts and to staff the novelties, which include a photo booth and photo magazine covers. If you are willing and able to help, please email me by Friday.

Finally, we invite students to stick around and/or come back for the dedication of the Science Complex at 4:00 PM. It would be great to fill the quad with students to show support for President and Mrs. Antonucci. Hope to see you all there!

Please pass this along to friends, members, etc. Post on social media.

Thank you in advance!

Hello Everyone! As we start a new week:

Last week- FSUPD's Deputy Chief Michael Cloutier gave an exceptional, fascinating presentation on "Active Shooter Training." This was the first public delivery on the topic its kind on this campus. He covered: Events & Risk, Pre-incident Indicators, Resolution, Pre-Event Leakage, Law Enforcement's change in tactics over the years, and a breakdown of common practices as well as our practices-- FSU's RAVE alert system (search FSU website), and the three "OUT(s)": Hide Out, Get Out, Take Out!
But as always, prevention is better than reaction/response, be observant and courageous--tell someone in an official capacity if you note suspicious behavior/hear of threats or "leakage/plans."

This week- Alpha Phi Sigma meeting April 29th at 3:30pm, APS E-board members will be elected.
-Community read on pressing 21st century legal issues on Thursday, April 30th, 3:30pm, Ellis White

Next week-
-Pool playing fundraiser, May 3rd, 3pm, Hammond Gameroom.
