Dear Rattlers,

As we prepare for the 2018-2019 academic year and welcome the Class of 2022 (FAMU22) to campus, it is important to pause and give thanks to all who contributed to the well-being of Florida A&M University during the 2017-2018 academic year. Our Board of Trustees, faculty, students, staff, friends, elected officials and, of course, dynamic alumni gave so much of themselves to ensure that FAMU22 could find their way to the Eternal Flame and continue our legacy of success, as demonstrated by the Rattlers who came before them over the past 130 years. 

These new Rattlers will pave their own path, but like so many alumni today, their hearts and souls will never venture far from the "College of Love and Charity." They will be molded into scholars by outstanding faculty and exceed our student success expectations. They will be embraced and nurtured by staff and transformed into active participants in the full college experience.  

FAMU22 will find role models in Rattlers like the committed members of the FAMU National Alumni Association and University boards who "showed up" in support of advancing our institutional mission at the recent Florida Board of Governors meeting in Orlando.  

When their time comes, FAMU22 will articulate the importance of our strategic plan, “FAMU Rising,” in just as clear and concise terms as each of you do when you so passionately tell the story of FAMU while advocating for the funding and support needed to ensure continued progress for the benefit of Florida and the nation. We have a lot to be thankful for and even more to look forward to in the future.

Yours in Service,

Larry Robinson, Ph.D.
