Connecting to Campus
The Office of Admissions offers educational opportunities for middle and high school students that connect them to the UF campus. Students and their families gain intimate knowledge of the UF colleges, schools, institutes and centers that provide career and degree exploration, academic guidance, and the college experience.
The Office of Admissions Ambassadors offer individual and group presentations, tours and shadowing options of the college student experience and more. Our ambassador experience offers a realistic view of the college student life that required a balance that supports academic and co-curricular successes toward graduation and ultimately their profession.

The Student Recruitment Conference invites students (grades 8 -11) and an adult guest of their choice to the University of Florida campus for a comprehensive overview of the admissions process, a taste of campus life and access to academic guidance and opportunities. This experience provides students with the opportunity to speak directly with current students and faculty, as well as college and department personnel.
