As a professional student organization for all FACS majors, we strive to prepare our members for their post-graduation situation. Whether that is the job market, entrepreneurship, or graduate school.

 The Student Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (SAFCS) student members who pay yearly dues gain membership on the local level in our collegiate SAFCS chapter. At monthly meetings, SAFCS members interact with students from all departments within the college, participate in community service projects, and learn professional development skills through various programs. Members are also affiliated with FCCLA Alumni and Associates.

Students in the College of Family and Consumer Science are encouraged to become members of the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (AAFCS). AAFCS is the only national forum where K-12 teachers, university educators, and corporate executives collaborate to improve the quality of individual and family life.  The annual $50 dues gives you membership in both AAFCS and the Georgia Affiliate of AAFCS,  and also includes the online Journal of Family & Consumer Sciences, membership in the online AAFCS Member forum and Student Unit forum and preferred member pricing on the premier event for FCS student and professionals, the AAFCS Annual Conference & Expo. 

At the state level, students can attend meetings of the Georgia Association of Family and Consumer Sciences and at the national level the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences. SAFCS helps students broaden their horizons through leadership opportunities, community service and interaction with some of the top professionals in their areas of study. Students can enjoy camaraderie, refreshments and door prizes at each meeting.
