Vires, Artes, and Mores Awards


In an effort to honor Florida State University’s values, we recognize three outstanding student leaders each Spring semester who embody our three eternal goals through the Vires, Artes, and Mores awards. The tool of progress and the results of growth, leadership is the path to honor; the universal virtue of noble actions.

Signifies strength of all kinds, moral, physical and intellectual. The ability to allow yourself to be suspect to knowledge, with full intention of providing a curious and inquisitive nature to others.

Alludes to the beauty of intellectual pursuits as exemplified in skill, craft, or art. Humility made visible. Truly, it is through our service to others that we discover ourselves.

Character, custom or tradition. Love is the burning spark that ignites the torches of leadership, scholarship, and service, and propels the success of Seminoles everywhere.

Recipients will be chosen by Garnet and Gold Key’s executive committee in Spring 2022
