Annual gifts from our alumni and friends provide students with opportunities to:

  • Enter their documentary films in film festivals
  • Present their research at conferences
  • Participate in national and regional competitions
  • Visit major IT, Advertising and Public Relations companies
  • Give back to the local community providing workshops on technology, social media and media production
  • Recognize excellence in student leadership, research and service
  • Support faculty who manage these student experiences and mentor students

What does it really mean to be a member of the CCI Giving Society?

Making an annual gift at one of the giving society levels allows you to play an important role in the financial health of the College of Communication & Information and make a powerful statement about how much you value a Florida State University education. The CCI Giving Society encourages alumni, parents, and friends to support the college at higher levels of annual giving.
