GatorFest! officially kicked off Saturday, Aug. 13, when the largest number of students returned to campus since 2020. New students are moving into their residential communities, and current students are returning to campus. During the first eight weeks of the semester, GatorFest! will welcome them while celebrating what it means to an SF State student.

GatorFest! will continue to host our campus traditions, such as an entering-class photo and an entering-year pinning ceremony featuring a uniquely designed SF State pin, while helping students start strong academically and connect socially through extended orientation workshops and student life events. In addition, fall 2022 brings forth an array of new events bringing students together to build friendship and community, explore San Francisco and celebrate the start of their college journey.

The campus community, current students, staff and faculty are encouraged to welcome new students from move-in through the eight weeks of GatorFest! programming. Learn more on the New Student & Family Programs website. Go Gators!
