Connecting Families to Florida State University
As the family member of a current Florida State University student, you have an important role in helping your student achieve his or her educational goals. Family Connection welcomes families to connect with, support, and encourage a university environment that allows students to excel in service, leadership, and academic excellence. Florida State University views families as an important partner in achieving the success of our students and institution.
The Family Connection mission includes:
- Information sharing between the University and families of current students.
- Support for University programs and services that promote student success.
- Encouragement of appropriate involvement of families in the college experience.
- Feedback and dialog on issues important to the successful growth of Florida State University as a premier higher education institution

- Can't Wait Until the Fall? Come to one of our THREE Spring Family Weekends - April 2-4, April 10-12, & April 17-19! As we celebrate the start of Spring, we invite you to Tallahassee to see your student and participate in a number of activities available to the campus community. This is an especially unique time to visit your student and the university community because of all of the great things happening in the capitol city. There are three weekends which are packed full of activities – too many for us to choose just one – so we encourage you to choose which of these weekends fits your interest, schedule, and convenience. No registration & no formal structure - it's your time! For more information & a schedule of events, please visit: https://studentaffairs.fsu.edu/fw/
