Parliament of OWLs

Established in 2000, Florida Atlantic’s Parliament of OWLs (Older, Wiser, Leaders) recognize the leadership and academic achievements our students have shown during their tenure on campus.

Each inductee receives a special gold lapel feather as a symbol to represent Florida Atlantic’s mascot, the burrowing Owl. The feather reminds those wearing it that the wing is necessary for the owl to be carried forward. Each member in the Parliament of OWLs has contributed to Florida Atlantic’s ability to rise.

The 2024 Parliament of OWLs ceremony will be held on Wednesday, October 30.
