What's a Global Gator Guide?
Global Gator Guides are members of an award-winning program within the Global Business Society. The main focus of the program is to match a UF student with an incoming exchange student to help the
student transition to life on campus.
We encourage our gator guides to reach
out to their student and connect them to resources, communities, and events within the Heavener School of Business & our local Gainesville community. The goal of the program is to create lasting connections with international business students while they learn and grow here at UF.
The Global Gator Guide program provides students with a global experience without leaving Gainesville.
Ideally, the guides have an interest in foreign cultures or have studied abroad themselves. We hope to pair the guides with an exchange student has similar interests.
