Meet the Florida Cicerones
Florida Cicerones WEbsiteFlorida Cicerones serve as the official student ambassadors to the University of Florida.
Founded in 1968 as the University of Florida's first permanent student hosts corps, Florida Cicerones served as guides and hostesses, promoting the university to campus guests. Florida Cicerones coined their name from the legacy of Marcus Tullius Cicero, a Roman statesman and writer, known as the the greatest orator of the late Roman Republic.
The organization is sponsored by the University of Florida Alumni Association to empower its members to serve as active liaisons between prospective students, current students, alumni and the larger University of Florida community. Florida Cicerones serve as the governing body of the Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow to enhance the student experience and foster a lasting relationship with the university that will extend into students’ years as alumni.
Additionally, Florida Cicerones serve as the official tour guides to the University of Florida, aid in athletic recruiting for the University Athletic Association, and serve as the official student hosts to the President of the university and his guests. Florida Cicerones also accept requests from all across the UF community for events throughout the year!
