Other Information

The FSU circus is one of only two collegiate circuses in the United States. A unique tradition on the campus of The Florida State University since 1947, the Circus is a year-round program in which FSU students can participate. We boast an impressive student group that takes advantage of a marvelous learning opportunity from the circus as a part of their collegiate experience. All of the performers are FSU students (they receive no class credit), and they are able to put on a performance which rivals that of a professional show. The students perform in the show and are involved in virtually every aspect of production from setup of our Big Top tent to the sewing of our costumes.
