Black Alumni Weekend

Black Alumni Weekend (BAW) has always provided members of the Gator Nation with a chance to come together and celebrate the historic milestones achieved by black students at the University of Florida, and this year was no exception. Our impressive slate of “Gator Pioneers” from every decade and degree inspired many attendees to keep dreaming of new frontiers to cross over the next 50 years.

Excited by the momentum of this year’s successful event, we are already planning for next year’s reunion! We invite you to join us. Please stayed tuned for dates to be announced soon for Black Alumni Weekend 2014.
