Featured Scholar

CCI's First Garnet&Gold Scholar CCI alumna Courtney Duran capped her Summer 2011 graduation with a new title, The College of Communication & Information’s first Garnet and Gold Scholar.

According to Courtney, “the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society recognizes well rounded students and gives them the opportunity to turn their experiences into a compiled reflection prior to graduation. It was great to look back and realize how much I had accomplished outside of the classroom during my time at FSU. It was a great way to encourage students to collaborate with their classmates and gain valuable real-life experience while doing something they love.”
