Every child deserves the opportunity to consider attending an institution of higher education. And, the University of Florida is one of the preeminent institutions encouraging the country’s elementary and middle school students to set goals regarding academic achievements. 
 
Understanding the importance of forming a collegiate allegiance early in life, UF takes the opportunity to connect with elementary and middle-school students and educators (teachers, guidance counselors and principals), which raises students’ awareness of the university’s academic programs, life-changing research, amazing service to its local, national and international communities and award-winning athletics.
