Florida Days

    REGISTRATION WILL BE
    AVAILABLE MARCH 2ND AT 8:30 a.m.

     

    Congratulations! You are a Gator! Join us at Florida Days!

    As the newest member of our Gator Nation, you and two family members/guests are invited to Florida Days, our newly- admitted student events. By attending a Florida Days event, you will have the chance to see what the return on your investment could be by learning the value our colleges offer and the support our campus communities provide for all students. Florida Days is an “optional” event, which is not the same as our required Preview (orientation) events. Space is limited, so sign up early!

    Florida Days has been developed with the undecided in mind, so if you are already certain that you are committing to UF, we encourage you instead to attend Preview (Orientation) events happening from May – June. In order to give as many newly-admitted students and their families an opportunity to attend an event, please do not register for more than one of our newly-admitted student event programs or bring more than your two allotted guests with you. Due to limited space, we are not able to accommodate individuals who have not registered or who are not one of the allotted guests.



    Registration Information

    If registration is at capacity and the registration close date has not passed (registration closes three business days prior to the event date), we encourage you to check back periodically for available spaces due to cancellations. If space becomes available, select a date and use your MyAdmissions username and password to log in to complete your registration.
