Who You Going To Call?

…When You Need Answers

Over the years there have been only a few times that I, as a parent, have felt the need to call the campus to resolve an issue. Generally, I try to get my kids to handle it themselves. However, knowing where to call for whatever the issue can be daunting. For instance, when said student accrued a certain amount of parking tickets and was having a difficult time paying them online, she called the Transportation and Parking Office to figure it out. More information and other reasons you may have to contact this office are below.

Another example: When a friend had reason to believe her son may have been being hazed by his fraternity during rush, she got in touch with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.  850-644-9574. The director email ccgraham@fsu.edu

Fortunately, that situation was managed, but her next step was to call the President’s office.

John Thraser is the President of Florida State University. His office is located at 211 Westcott Building Tallahassee, FL 32306-1470.

Email: president@fsu.edu
Phone: 850-644-1085
