Notice to Florida Leader Readers

Oxendine Publishing has been proud to serve the Florida education community for the past 22 years through our magazines and awards programs.

However, the focus of our company has evolved, and our new concentration is Student Government training. We’ve dedicated a great deal of time and resources to develop the American Student Government Association—the national professional association serving Student Governments—as well as related conferences and consulting services.

Because of this new direction, we have decided to put Florida Leader magazine up for sale. Our company will no longer be producing the magazine, the Best of Florida Schools Awards, or the Florida College Student of the Year Award. Yet we hope that a new owner will continue to publish Florida Leader and sponsor its important awards programs.

We thank you all for your support and hope that you will consider joining ASGA or subscribing to Student Leader magazine, our national publication. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail or call us at 352-373-6907.


Like hungry college students raiding their pantries for midnight munchies, we here at Florida Leader scour the state for the most delicious morsels to include in our "Best of Florida Schools" issue. For the 16th year, we're pleased to serve up a smorgasbord of 109 general categories, chock full of delectable dorm activities, savory service projects, and everything in between. Then for dessert, we wheel out the freshest college newspapers and the most satisfying Student Governments in Florida. If you still have room for more, check out our Web exclusives.
Florida’s Shining Students
Who at your school are among “Florida’s Finest?" Each month, we feature students from across the state who have dreamed big, worked hard, and made things happen on their campuses and in their community. This month,
Karen Poritz of Hillsborough Community College sees Hanukkah as a metaphor in her daily life. Also, meet Palm Beach Atlantic University's Nicole Greenwald, who helps a youth group come alive with love.

SG Leaders, We Want You!
Every president should have his portrait done. You don't have to go to the Oval Office to get to know the President. Meet the SG leaders from across the state who tell you about their biggest challenges, accomplishments, and influences. We’re proud to add Bijal Chhadva, Student Body president at the University of South Florida, to our gallery of Student Government leaders.
