Are you aware that one of the only two collegiate circuses in the United States is located on Florida State's campus...right in our own backyard? The program began sixty-five years ago by Jack Haskin as an extracurricular activity, designed to integrate men and women at the newly co-ed institution, and is still presenting spellbinding performances rivaling professional circus troupes today! The FSU Circus has no animal acts, but does offer three rings of fabulous entertainment for all ages, with an amazing aerial and stage presentation, all performed by Florida State students.
Each April, the Circus generates revenue by hosting a series of "Homeshow" performances under its own big top tent on the FSU campus. If you miss one of these special shows, you just might have to travel to see them, as the students have been known to perform in cities all across the globe at other times during the year. If you're an FSU student, not only are you eligible to join and actually perform, but your ticket is free! Visit http://circus.fsu.edu/index.html for more information or to purchase tickets.
