Recommendations for Support & Assistance

Florida State University has many resources available to families and students before, during, and after the college experience. Below you will find a list of common family member interest/concern topic areas. Below each topic area, we have listed some of the appropriate University offices, programs, or service/resources available to address questions in that area. We have also provided the names of Family Connection Council Members who are available to provide informal support for that topic area should you need a peer Family Member to mentor you through an issue or to just to listen. If you have a question for a member of the Family Connection Council, click HERE to send an email (in the subject line please include the name of the family member you are interested in contacting or the topic of question; we will route your message to the appropriate member(s) for response).

Members of the Family Connection Council are not employees of Florida State University. They offer their advice and time as enthusiastic supporters of FSU and engaged family members of current students. As always, please do not hesitate to contact the professional staff in New Student & Family Programs and Dean of Students Department if you have additional questions or need more support and guidance.
