Florida State University views families as an important partner in achieving the success of our students and institution. 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.
