About Our Auction
The FSU Circus Alumni and the FSU Foundation have teamed together to raise funds for the Flying High Circus Expansion Project, the university's approximately $15 million development project in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Circus on campus.
Commencing in April 2022, the Circus Expansion Project will be carried out in three phases comprised of both renovation and new construction, including a new ticket box office, a two-story rehearsal space, updated amenities for students and patrons, needed storage upgrades and much more.
About FSU Flying High Circus
Founded in 1947 by Jack Haskin, the Florida State University "Flying High" Circus is an extra-curricular activity. This program was created to integrate men and women when FSU became a co-ed institution and is still an activity for male and female students to participate in jointly. Rivaling a professional circus, the FSU Circus is primarily an aerial and stage presentation with three rings of spellbinding entertainment for everyone. "Flying High" has no animal acts. Student performers rig all of their own equipment, sew their own costumes, produce lights and sound for performances, and set up the Big Top tent on campus. With 18-22 circus acts taught on the ground or in the air, there is a place for everyone.
