The University of Florida believes in partnering with our families throughout your student’s collegiate journey. We provide many opportunities to keep you informed throughout the year. Our goal is to support you and guide you to know many common transitional issues we see year-to-year, upcoming events and important deadlines.
Below are a few ways that you can stay connected and engaged so together we can help your student thrive during their Gator Student Experience.
Chomp Chats are designed to support & educate Gator Families by providing information on campus & community resources, promoting healthy student/family relationships, and proactively addressing questions & concerns.
The Gator Parent Family Association monthly newsletter is the greatest place for parents and families to stay in the loop with all of the campus happenings. Sent at the beginning of every month, the GPFA newsletter has registrar reminders, involvement opportunities, ways to support your student, and more. If you’re looking for a way to stay informed about the most important details regarding your student, look no further than the Gator Parent Family monthly newsletter.
Gator Family Facebook groups are designed to build community among family members in the Gator Parent & Family Association. Design solely for parents and family members, these class-based forums are meant to answer questions, give tips, highlight news, encourage others, and make new friends. Each group consist of family ambassadors and staff members from the University who are willing and ready to answer questions.
The Gator Parent and Family Association’s blog serves as a platform to give UF family members, faculty, staff, and students the opportunity to share their stories and experiences. Through these stories, we hope to foster connection with fellow members of the UF community by providing insight into the journeys of our students and offering encouragement to fellow family members.
