WARNING: Good news ahead.
If youre fed up with the superficial and downright
depressing "news" so common in our modern media, Florida Leader has a
treat in store for you. Stop reading now if you refuse to smile.
Our 18-year-old leadership magazine purposely chooses to
focus on outstanding achievements of both student leaders and colleges and universities
across our great state. We dont ferret out Student Government scandalsyour
campus papers do a fine job already. Instead, we seek out tangible accomplishments by
campus go-getters. We dont point out weaknesseswe celebrate successes.
If you want to be encouraged, and even heartened, by the hundreds
of examples of college and university students and groups who make a difference, Florida
Leaders 12th Annual "Best of Florida Schools" issue will do
Our editors and staff writers spend endless hours reviewing
application packets, checking out campus newspapers, surfing the web, reading last minute
e-mail submissions, and bombarding administrators with questions so we wont miss
even one worthy campus activity, group, or project.
Every year, student leaders attempt to out-do the previous
administration's accomplishments--not only to get recognized in the "Best of Florida
Schools" issue, but to better their entire campus body's educational experiences.
These Florida leaders' hard work has resulted in nearly 140 "Best of"
categoriesthe most eversome of which can be found exclusively at our web site,
www.floridaleader.com, which also offers
expanded versions of most of the categories in this magazine.
Florida Leader hopes our "Best of Florida
Schools" awards help campus leaders statewide, including SG leaders, newspaper
editors, lobbyists, coordinators, officers, and members of clubs and organizations, get
the pat on the back they deserve. And you, dear reader, can steal-- we mean
borrowsome of the innovative ideas inside and implement them on your campus.

Editor's Note: Each "Best Student Government" entry is
evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The editors research and assess each organization's
ability to identify and address student concerns, implement innovative programs, control
wasteful spending of student dollars, and network with administrators and other student
groups on campus and across the state. In addition, preference is given to SGs that can
demonstrate vast improvement in all the areas above. Florida Leader verifies each
SG's claim through numerous reference checks with administrators, student journalists,
organization officers, and other interested parties.
