Spring 2024 events

GBS hosts a variety of events for our general body members, exchange students, and Gator Guides in order to introduce our exchange students to American culture and activities, and to allow UF students to experience aspects of various cultures as well.

All of our on-campus events are mandatory for Gator Guides, but our off-campus events are optional. If you wish to attend any of our GBS events, please make sure to RSVP within appropriate time in order to ensure your spot.
