Welcome to the University of Florida family! We are so proud to have your son or daughter as a member of The Gator Nation.
The Family Fund is a way for you, as a parent or guardian, to actively participate in the education of your student. By contributing to the Family Fund you will support programs designed to assist in your child’s learning, allow them to explore career possibilities, and integrate them into service and leadership organizations.
Support to the Family Fund enhances the Division of Student Affairs in many ways, including:
Career Resource Center: The CRC is one of the largest and busiest in the US serving over 130,000 visitors each year. The CRC provides students with career development and guidance support. The center also brings nearly 1,000 recruiters to campus as part of the career fair and arranges about 10,000 employment interviews for students on campus.
Counseling Center: The Counseling Center is available to all students at UF. In addition to traditional counseling services, the Center provides resources for time management, test anxiety, math confidence and stress management. For our new students, the Center helps them adjust to their new living and learning setting as well as make academic major and career decisions.
Gator Nights: Gator Nights is an award winning, nationally recognized on-campus late night alternative for students. Every Friday night, students can enjoy activities such as rock climbing, arts and craft, and free movies at the Reitz Union. There is also free food, including a midnight breakfast.
Gatorship: This leadership retreat for student leaders addresses current leadership issues through team building activities and group discussions over the course of a weekend.
Florida Alternative Breaks: This program is an opportunity for students to participate in community service projects both locally and regionally during their Spring Break. Students work on projects such as animal refuge, hurricane disaster relief and environmental preservation.
