Freshman Leaders On Campus
Freshman Leaders On campus was winner of the NASPA Excellence Award, Bronze, presented by the national organization for Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, January 2009.
Freshman Leaders On Campus (FLOC), a select organization for incoming freshmen, was founded at the University of Texas at Arlington in the fall of 2002. The mission of FLOC is to promote member involvement in student governance and community service, preparing students for active participation throughout their years at UT Arlington. FLOC provides great opportunities to make friends and to interact with varying aspects of university life. Members of FLOC quickly get involved in the university through networking with campus leaders, collaborating with other organizations and further developing leadership skills.
Former President Student Congress, Chris Featherstone proposed the establishment of FLOC in order to identify freshmen who have interest in leadership at UT Arlington. FLOC members have gone on to leadership positions in many facets of student life including roles as Student Congress President and Senators, Freshmen Orientation Leaders, Peer Leaders, Residence Hall Assistants, Ambassadors and EXCEL Directors.
"Not only will FLOC allow you to learn more about yourself and unlock your true leadership potential, it will Jumpstart your involvement on campus and give you a family away from home, all while having the time of your life."
