Late last night there was a shooting on the FSU campus at Strozier Library. We are deeply saddened by this event and our thoughts go out to the victims of this tragedy. We are taking every effort to ensure all our residents are safe. We know this is a very scary situation, but we urge our residents to remain calm. We are here for you. If you need to contact us, click here for a list of team members with emails. Since classes will be closed, we recommend you remain off campus with all the commotion. If you do visit the campus, be alert and sensible. Let us know if you need anything.

If you or someone you know needs to speak with a counselor, please contact the FSU Counseling Center, FSU's Employee Assistance Program2-1-1 Big Bend, or FSU Victim Advocate Program.
