Welcome, New Gators and Gator Families!

Allow us to be among the first to welcome you to Gainesville and wish you a huge "mazel tov" on your acceptance to the University of Florida!

UF Hillel is here to help you learn about UF's Jewish student experience, share opportunities to get involved before and when you get to Gainesville, and provide connections for new Jewish Gators and their parents to meet each other.

Above all, we want to get to know you and be a resource to you throughout your time in Gainesville, especially as a first year Gator. 

If you are an incoming Jewish Gator or the parent of an incoming Jewish Gator,
