Community Living at FSC
The	Cornerstone:
Florida	Southern	seeks	to	create	a	community	of	scholars	who	hold	one	another	accountable	to	the	high	ideals,	vision,	and	mission	of	the	college.	
Choosing	to	join	the	community	obligates	each	member	to	a	code	of	behavior	that	reflects	the	highest	personal	and	communal	values	to	which	the	
college	is	committed.	Inspired	by	the	Judeo-Christian	principles	on	which	the	college	was	founded,	as	a	Florida	Southern	Scholar...
	 I	will	practice	personal	and	academic	integrity	and	excellence	of	character	and	expect	the	same	from	others.
	 I	will	respect	the	dignity,	value,	and	worth	of	all	persons	while	learning	from	the	differences	in	people,	ideas,	and	opinions.
	 I	will	respect	the	rights	and	property	of	others.
	 I	will	demonstrate	concern	for	others,	their	feelings,	and	our	communal	need	for	conditions	that	promote	personal	growth	and	academic	success.
	 Through	my	actions,	I	will	honor	and	contribute	to	the	rich	heritage	left	by	those	who	have	preceded	us	and	work	to	leave	the	college	a	better	
	 	        place	for	those	who	follow.
The	Cornerstone	outlines	the	standard	of	behavior	that	is	the	foundation	for	campus	life.	Commitment	to	these	ideals	requires	each	member	of	the	
community	to	practice	behaviors	that	promote	the	well-being	of	the	community	and	to	discourage	those	behaviors	which	do	not.	Please	be	familiar	
with	the	student	handbook	and	the	residence	hall	policies	posted	on	the	Florida	Southern	College	website:	www.flsouthern.edu.
