Kate Franzese

Campus Coordinator

Florida State University


Bio: Kate is a senior at Florida State University, majoring in economics, with a minor in political science. She was first exposed to the ideas of liberty as an early-admission student at Florida Gulf Coast University, during what would have been her senior year of high school. After taking a class called “The Moral Foundations of Capitalism,” Kate realized the significance of the ideas of liberty, and continued to expand her knowledge through conferences, seminars, and literature.  Since then she has been very active in the Young Americans for Liberty chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and served as Social and Outreach chairs of the group. Kate is attending Florida State University this fall, and will remain active in the liberty movement within the Southeast region.

 Favorite Figures in Liberty: Ayn Rand, Frédéric Bastiat, Joseph Shumpeter

On Students For Liberty: “After attending my first liberty-related conference, the ISFLC in 2011, I knew this was an organization I wanted to be a part of. SFL attracts a variety of individuals who are working towards the same goals, and that network of individuals and resources is crucial to the spread of liberty. I look forward to doing my part, as a campus coordinator, to illuminate the ideas in my region.”
