FSU PC has a photo library for use among faculty and staff.


PSAs generally are short announcements for an upcoming event. They usually are written in a way that can be read on air within 30 seconds. Include the most important information, such as time, date and location, at the beginning of the PSA.

For PSA, writing and editing services, call Becky Kelly at 770-2151 or email


Press releases usually are longer than PSAs, hoping to draw the attention of a reporter for on-air or in-print coverage. They are written for publication verbatim, but usually are rewritten by an on-staff reporter. Write press releases with the inverted pyramid writing style (with the most important information first).

The FSU Panama City Stylebook was created to promote FSU and the FSU Panama City brand and image through consistent use of the university's name, logo, colors, fonts, graphics and writing style. Working together, each element helps evoke the university's mission and message to various audiences.

The purpose of this stylebook is to clarify standards and provide the tools that accurately reflect the university. Though not intended to answer every question, this stylebook addresses common institutional identity issues.

FSU Panama City encourages the use of our name and/or logo on all campus publications. To ensure accuracy and consistency, please review all off-campus advertising, event promotion, etc. with the Office of Advancement.

The Office of Advancement promotes student life, academic achievements, faculty/staff accomplishments, etc.
