TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State University studio art students had a chance to show (and build) who they want to be the next president of FSU.
Students had a week and a half to build their candidates out of cardboard. The candidate's head had to be at least three feet tall and one member of the team had to wear the head. Each team also had to create a platform speech for their candidate that they presented Thursday at Wescott Fountain. The two candidates created were Sam Jones and Dr. Carmen Rosenthal.
"We all kind of brainstormed," says Renata Fulginiti on Team Rosenthal. "All of the members of the team, we just sat around, thought of things that were important to us at the school and what president, the future president would be concerned about. Then we did research on our own about what would make a good college president."
The 3-D foundations art class project was assigned in response to the current FSU presidential search.
