Frequently Asked Questions

Who are the Upstate Gator Club®?

We are a Gator Club of the University of Florida Alumni Association based in Greenville, SC., but our territory reaches the Georgia and North Carolina borders, and even stretches down to Greenwood, SC! We're run by a board of volunteers and work closely with other Gator Clubs in the region to connect fans, friends, family and alumni throughout the year.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we organize local annual programming to promote the advancement of the University of Florida and its many initiatives, and fundraise as a way to support local students who enroll at the University of Florida, by conducting an annual scholarship award program.

What is the UFAA?

The University of Florida Alumni Association was organized and chartered in 1906 by the first group of graduates from the Gainesville campus. Today, living alumni total over 450,000 and reside in every state and in more than 150 countries. The Gator Nation truly is everywhere!
