What is The Hutchinson Bell? Good question! After students graduate from Florida College, they have the opportunity to join an elite society of alumni and friends of the college. One specific part of The Hutchinson Bell is hosting events (Florida College summer camps, banquets, 5ks, and more) to spread the mission of Florida College and help future Falcons attend.
The Young Alumni Council advises the Director of Alumni Relations on programs and services that specifically benefit recent graduates of Florida College (aka you!). The focus is to collaborate on how to educate other young alumni about the programs, services and mission of The Hutchinson Bell, as well as to advance and support the general welfare of Florida College. The objective is to create a continuum from student to alumnus, and foster relationships with young alumni that lead to lifetime involvement.
