Eighty-one Percent of Current Florida State University Law Students Give to Annual Fund

Dean Don Weidner

Eighty-one percent of current Florida State University College of Law students have just made cash gifts to the law school. Students contributed during an annual student drive held January 27 – February 2.

“We’re all thrilled by this result, which essentially is a vote of confidence in our program,” said College of Law Dean Don Weidner. “Faculty challenge gifts were a major factor.” Forty-one faculty members made challenge gifts of their own to inspire student giving.

Historically, the College of Law’s strong student giving rates motivate alumni to give to the law school. Florida State is the nation’s tenth best law school in terms of alumni giving rate, according to American Bar Association data.
