Grand Guard 2019


About The Grand Guard Society and Reunion


The Grand Guard Society celebrates the rich history of The Gator Nation® and provides meaningful experiences for Gators who have reached the 50th anniversary of their first graduation. Each year we welcome a new class into the Grand Guard Society during the reunion weekend. All Grand Guard Society members are invited to participate and help welcome the new inductees.

The Grand Guard tradition began in 1955 and included graduates from East Florida Seminary, Florida Agricultural College, and South Florida Military Institute. There are approximately 900 living Grand Guard members to date.
