Florida A&M University (FAMU) President Larry Robinson, Ph.D., launched his first statewide recruitment tour as the University’s 12th president on Friday, March 9.
Students, parents, alumni, and supporters met the President at five tour stops across the state of Florida in five days: Pensacola, Gainesville, Lake Worth, Davie, and Miami. Tour guests experienced one-on-one talks with FAMU representatives, staff, and leadership; performances from the University’s touring company, “The FAMU Connection;” and the opportunity to hear from student leadership and the President about what makes FAMU the No.1 Public HBCU.
The tour began in Pensacola on March 9 at Booker T. Washington High School and ended in Miami, Fla. on Monday, March 12 at Miami Jackson High School. Local students that were accepted into FAMU were announced at the tour stops and more students applied to attend the University at each location.
