What's cool is you know who our alums are…

Who are your famous alums?

BTW, I saw Carrot Top in Vegas and was not looking forward to it, but must say, I was pleasantly surprised.  He was hilarious actually.  I would recommend taking in one of his shows.

We have
Al Lombardi (Broward County's Sheriff)
The CEO of office depot
The guy that went to space last year.
The singer from Dashboard Confessional
Frank Brogan (Florida State Chancellor)?
The list goes on….
They might be not famous, but this is decent people with high positions that help our community and that is what matters in the end.

Actually I feel very famous and proud to be an FAU alumnus.
