TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida A&M University was well represented at the annual FAMU Day at the Florida Capitol.

Different colleges at FAMU had booths set up to show off what current students are working on, from lab kits for online students to different coding projects.

Many Rattler alumni stopped by the booths and were impressed with how the university is growing and continuing to provide opportunities for their students.

FAMU President, Dr. Larry Robinson, stopped by the booths on his way to meet with legislators about potential funding for the school.

"The number one priority is the Center for Academic Student Success, or CASS," said Dr. Robinson. "It's a facility that would allow us to consolidate in one place all of our student services from financial aid and admissions to counseling and health services and so forth. We think that would be a tremendous advantage to our students so they can go to this 'one-stop shop.'"

Dr. Robinson believes that FAMU Day at the Capitol is a way for students and alumni to show legislators that their support helps further education.
