Welcome to The Global Gator!

This blog is a space for University of Florida students to document their experiences abroad. If you’re looking for something specific, such as posts about a certain program or country, you can use the magnifying glass on the menu bar above to search all posts. However, the easiest way to use this site is to choose a region (e.g. “Asia”) and then a specific country within that region (e.g. “Singapore”) that you’d like to view posts about.

Our Spring 2022 bloggers are below. These students are either preparing to go abroad very soon, or have already started their semester! We encourage you to engage with them by reading, liking, and/or commenting on their posts.
