The Florida Capitol was painted Garnet and Gold Tuesday with enthusiastic FSU grads filling the halls.
FSU Day at the Capitol is always an exciting time for those who work in the legislature and alumni who come to celebrate their Alma Mater. The fight song played, the cheerleaders and dancers performed, and legislators were honored for their Seminole Pride.
Representative Matt Gaetz is a proud FSU grad. Gaetz said, "All of us take such great pride in being able to come back to our college hometown. You know no matter where we've gone in the state of Florida. So it's great to be here and enjoy the FSU pride, and still do great work for the people of Florida."
The voice of the Seminoles, Gene Deckerhoff, emceed the event, making sure everyone at the capitol knew exactly what day it was.
FSU Day at the Capitol is Tuesday, April 12. This event has become a popular tradition during the legislative session and a wonderful opportunity to bring Florida State University to our friends in the Legislature.
Please join us for a day filled with informative displays in the plaza level, second and third floor rotundas from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., as well as appearances by FSU celebrities, performances by the Pep Band, cheerleaders and the Flying High Circus during the lunch hour in the courtyard beginning at 11:30 a.m. Refreshments will be available for all to enjoy.
In addition to our festivities on the 12th, this year we are adding a “Seminole Evening” reception the evening of April 11th on the 22nd floor of the Capitol. The reception is 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. We invite you to come by and meet our legislators.
Mark your calendars now! We look forward to seeing you in your Garnet and Gold on April 11 and 12. -
