Jeanna Mastrodicasa, Assistant Dean of Students

Preview, the University of Florida two-day freshman orientation program, began last week. As a result, new students and families will be in large numbers across campus, and we appreciate your support. Between 320 and 400 students and their families are expected to attend each session. Parking for the program will be held in Parking Garage IV, near the check-in and on-campus housing location of Broward Hall. Check-in begins at 5 p.m. on the night before Preview begins.

The program is held in the J. Wayne Reitz Union on Day One, with the opening session beginning at 8:30 a.m. Sessions are held all day until 9:30 p.m. Lunch is at the Reitz Union Food Court from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., and dinner is at Gator Corner from 5:15 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. On Day Two, students will be going to the Racquet Club or to Tigert Hall to check-in for their advising appointments, which are scattered throughout the day. Families are encouraged to attend Open Houses on campus, which are being hosted by a variety of offices and programs.
