Campus comes alive each year during Alumni Weekend as hundreds of alumni, friends and families return to campus to reconnect and celebrate their accomplishments as doctors, physician assistants, researchers and educators. Space is limited for several events and football tickets always sell out. REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SOON.
Several hotel blocks are available, but rooms will sell out fast!
Our alumni are our most treasured asset at the UF College of Medicine, and our success is only as strong as your involvement. Class giving is a wonderful way to team up with your fellow alumni to maximize your philanthropy and express appreciation for the education you’ve received.
See which of your classmates are already registered to attend Alumni Weekend.
At O2B Kids Parent Night Out, children will enjoy a special agenda planned just for them with activities such as art, exercise, movies, obstacle courses, games, dancing and karaoke. Gainesville offers a variety of other babysitting resources at fun4gatorkids.com.
