Introducing the UF Online Family Chat Program

The Family Chat program is designed to help families stay connected and informed throughout the school year. Families will be able to join UF family members and campus representatives for themed bi-monthly chat sessions. These live online sessions are designed to answer specific questions and promote discussion about UF and common transition concerns families may have about their student’s experience.
