The Full Sail University Hall of Fame recognizes the extraordinary accomplishments of select Full Sail graduates who have excelled in their career field.
Six new graduates are chosen for the Hall of Fame each year. In order to be considered for induction, grads must have at least ten years of industry experience. More importantly, the alumni must show a passion and dedication for their career that serves a model for future artists and the Full Sail community at large.
Hundreds of candidates are considered for selection, and the individuals chosen for a given year’s class are confirmed by a Full Sail committee of faculty, administrators, and past Hall of Fame inductees.
The inductees’ career accomplishments are highlighted at the on-campus Hall of Fame exhibit, which features a 60-foot mixed-media wall that includes video, sound, pictures, and credits of chosen graduates, as well as artifacts and memorabilia from their work in the industry.
