The Clock & Seal™ award banquet, sponsored by Burning Spear, is a core tradition included in Homecoming weekend festivities. Since its inception in 1995, Clock & Seal™ has hosted chief names in various spheres of leadership, as well as icons of Seminole lore. Attended by a vibrant mix of current and past campus leaders, FSU faculty, staff and administration, Clock & Seal™ has become the must-have ticket for every Seminole fan.
