Representatives of The Florida State University’s College of Communication & Information joined the festivities on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2012, as FSU Day was celebrated at the Capitol.

Various colleges and support units from around campus had tables set up on the first three floors of the Capitol tower — we were on the third floor, with a nice view of the entertainment going on in the courtyard between the old and new Capitols.

Staffing the CCI table were Betsy Crawford, CCI development coordinator, and two students from the School of Library and Information Studies: senior Matt Russi, an Information Technology major from Tallahassee, and junior Gerard Massey, an Information, Communication & Technology major from Perry.

Visitors to the CCI table included FSU President Eric Barron and his wife, Molly, and FSU Provost Garnett Stokes. Dr. Barron made a point to visit every table representing FSU, and he likened the experience to speed-dating.

In addition, Tina Hoover of the School of Communication Science & Disorders staffed a separate table, which promoted the school’s research as well as the community service provided by the L.L. Schendel Speech & Hearing Clinic.

CCI students and alumni were found at various tables, including Jennifer Santoro Dascomb, a School of Communication master’s graduate now working at FSU’s Center for Leadership and Civic Education, and Kate Campbell, a senior Public Relations major from Live Oak who helped represent the College of Education.
