Dear Florida Southern College Families:

Welcome to Florida Southern College! Whether you have a student new to FSC, or a returning student, this is certain to be an exciting year of changes and challenges. On behalf of the Florida Southern College Family Association, we extend a special welcome to you.

The Florida Southern College Family Association was formed in 2000. Our Mission is to build community in the college by linking student families through active support and programming. As a parent of an FSC student, you are a member of the Florida Southern College Family Association. We are very interested in hearing your experiences as you go through this year of college. It is through sharing thoughts and ideas that we continue to improve relations, and make your student’s experience better. If you have questions, comments, or recommendations on any aspect of the college experience, we are here to listen and respond to your thoughts. We believe FSC offers excellent opportunities for students to have the best in academics, as well as many programs to enjoy a valuable community experience. We have found the on-line handbook to be extremely helpful in providing information you may need throughout the coming year. Please mark your calendar for Family Weekend. This is a great time to visit and spend time with your student. Family Association officers for the next year will be elected during this time. Family Weekend is one of several opportunities you will have to meet other families and get involved.

The Family Association is on campus throughout the school year to assist with Orientation, Prospective Student Days on Campus, Scholars’ Weekends and other events. As parents of a student, Florida Southern College has been a wonderful part of our lives. We hope you, too, will have a fantastic experience as part of the FSC family.

The Family Association is ready to serve you and we invite your participation with us. You are welcome at any of our meetings. Your input and involvement is very important to FSC.


Sincerely,
Tim & Jenny Urban
Co-Chairs, FSC Family Association
