Dear COGS representatives,

First of all, thank you for representing the graduate students at FSU, and welcome to the COGS family 2016-2017. I am very excited by the amazing service we can do to our community, and look forward to seeing what is to come.

In order to follow the visibility campaign we are launching, I ask you to take some time; please read and follow the directions below:

1. E-mail your department/colleges/grad students listserv/copy your academic dean THIS WEEK. See suggested message example at the end of this message with important reminders of the week.

  *   Goal: Introduce yourselves to your graduate students constituency
  *   Copy me so I can keep a list of contact info (and create our own list)
  *   If you do not have access to your department/college listserv, contact your dean and send the message (some schools do this, and they forward the info to the people)
2. Social Media

  *   Like our Facebook page and post it on your profiles


Document what you see around FSU, and post it on Facebook.

  *   Follow us on our tweet meets


3. Know your rep initiative:
Send info ASAP to: Emily Allen – erallen at fsu.edu
Send photo, bio, campus involvement (any organizations, committees), hobbies, favorite FSU campus location, plus names of faculty that made a difference in your academic life)

4. If interested in being a part of the leadership-role-listserv (information of roles, opportunities, etc.) fill the form:

5. If you are interested in Business cards, we can print some for you, fill the doc below:

6. Bring COGS polos next meeting, or business attire with the pin. Be ready to be in a picture or video.

7. Represent: Wear your pin, polo, once in a while, specially in FSU events, and talk about FSU/COGS to people, you will be amazed on the conversations and ideas/comments/positive feedback/concerns you will hear.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate in contacting me,
