The Faith and Life Convocation Series brings the college community together on a regular basis for outstanding presentations and programs. Florida Southern College believes that an educational institution based on the liberal arts should expose students to a broad range of issues – religious, aesthetic, moral, and intellectual – as an academic requirement; therefore, your attendance is required. It is one of the many ways in which the college is committed to providing educational excellence.
All events take place at 10:40 a.m. in Branscomb Auditorium unless noted.
