Service Leadership Seminar


The Service Leadership Seminar is a unique experience for incoming freshman at Florida State University. The weeklong event is held before the start of fall semester at no cost for students. The seminar provides an opportunity to learn about community service, identity and leadership.  During the week, students participate in community service projects, workshops, speakers and interaction with current campus leaders. The activities are designed to enable the participants to discover how they can help create positive, sustainable change on Florida State’s campus.
