TALLAHASSEE – Florida State University welcomed 58 new inductees into its prestigious Garnet & Gold Scholar Society this fall.

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.

The students were inducted into the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society during a special ceremony Wednesday, Dec. 4. The inductees, along with their hometowns and academic majors, are:
