UF opens its campus doors to provide rising secondary prospective students and their guests with a comprehensive overview of the admissions process, campus life, and access to academic opportunities for college planning. Future applicants and their guests engage with UF colleges, departments, schools, organizations and offices through facility tours and sessions. Overall, we aim to provide each future applicant and their guests with knowledge about UF and how to be prepared to apply.
Gator For A Day offers a hands-on experience of what the life of a UF student is like from classes, on-campus living, dining facilities, to campus life with a current UF student. This program is for prospective high school seniors. They apply for this program and are selected to participate. Family members are also encouraged to attend other events on campus while the student is engaging in the life as a Gator.

As UF continues to become a top institution for education, it still wants to close the gap of education. The Gator Access Program is a way for UF Office of Admissions to give hands-on advice on the UF application to applicants from underrepresented, rural, minority populations and selected Title I schools. This program encourages applicants to apply to UF throughout the state of Florida.
The UF Office of Admissions collaborates with the University of Florida Alumni Association-affiliated groups and Community-Based Organizations to host the Student Recruitment Conference. This program brings middle and high school students to campus to learn about the stepping stones, academically and socially, students need to prepare themselves for college admission.
Destination UF is an off-campus reception hosted in many different US cities to provide newly admitted students and their family members an opportunity to learn more about The Gator Nation. At these, events, our guests have the opportunity to network with the Gator community, admissions regional representatives and local, proud Gator alumni. Events were held in Atlanta; Dallas; Falls Church, VA; Ft. Lauderdale; Ft. Walton Beach; Houston; Long Island, NY; Los Angeles; Pearl River, NY; Philadelphia; Pleasanton, CA

Phone Blitz is a peer-to-peer calling campaign to outreach to targeted newly admitted students. Student ambassador groups across campus answer any last-minute questions for newly admitted students and family members right before the tuition enrollment deadline.
Thirty Admissions Volunteer Ambassadors, 48 Florida Cicerones, 24 PAACT, and 5 others participated for a total of 107 students who helped making calls.
Regional Admissions Representatives' primary goal is to increase out-of-state enrollment of students from targeted states. While only travelling within these targeted states, increased interest and enrollment from bordering states is a common result of organic outreach growth. Regional recruitment resulted in an increase of admitted students and confirmed students hailing from states outside of Florida and bringing a wide array of perspectives and interests to the campus.
Target States: California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Washington D.C. Border States: Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Washington.
