FSU Campus Recreation welcomes our colleagues from around the state to Tallahassee for a day of learning and sharing on topics that affect all of us in collegiate recreation. The goal of the Florida Summit is to provide an opportunity for you to learn from colleagues and experts from Florida, ask questions of fellow recreation professionals and students, and get answers and ideas that you can take back to your own campus.
