The History ...
The Florida Cicerones/SAA serve as the Official Student Ambassadors
to the University of Florida. We are considered the link between past, present,
and future Gators. More importantly, we represent the University at various functions
throughout the year; one of our exciting jobs is hosting formal events at the President's Mansion.
We are blessed to have the opportunity to work directly with the
Alumni Association in order to create meaningful interaction between alumni and
We were originally an all-female group founded in 1968 as the official hosts
of the university. Today we are a co-ed organization comprised of a diverse collection of
over 120 individuals who all share the same enthusiasm for being a Florida Gator.
In 1987 we joined the Alumni Association to become the Florida Cicerones/SAA.
I was one of the lucky few who got "in" my freshman year. I have been an active
member since the Spring semester of 2001. After my first year, I ran for the position
of Programming Vice-President and won. I currently hold the position of Executive Vice-President.
The memories and friends I have made through Cicerones are small pieces of UF that will
forever remain with me after I leave this campus.
