FAMU Expects More Than 2500 Students to Attend Spring Preview 2022

Students will again visit the Tallahassee campus for the recruiting event .

Florida A&M University (FAMU) expects more than 2,500 students from over 30 states to converge on the Tallahassee campus Saturday for Spring Preview 2022.

The 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. recruiting event will be held at the Lawson Multipurpose Center, 1800 Wahnish Way. A “Welcome to FAMU” program will feature President Larry Robinson, Ph.D., Vice President for Student Affairs William E. Hudson Jr., Ph.D., other administrators, and student leaders as well as the FAMU Connection troupe.

“We are ecstatic to host the Preview again.  It is an exciting time for prospective students to visit campus, meet faculty and staff, and visit the facilities,” Hudson said. “An added bonus is the renowned ‘Be Out Day’ where current students can mingle with potential students. This is the ultimate representation of the FAMUly experience as alumni are also intimately involved.”  

Registrants include high school students from as far west as California, Arizona, and New Mexico and as far north as Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey. While on campus, students can visit their schools and colleges of interest. There will also be workshops to provide information about admissions, financial aid, and housing.

For high school students looking for an introduction to FAMU campus life, the Student Government Administration (SGA) hosts “Be Out Day,” a popular spring social ritual. The free event will be held on the Football Practice Field from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

SGA President Carrington Whigham said her administration was intent on holding the event, which had been cancelled for the past two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“’Be Out Day’ was very important on my priority list as president, because this year makes it the 30th anniversary, and despite the pandemic nearly taking everything away from my administration, I knew that ‘Be Out Day’ was something I had to accomplish,” Whigham said.
