Since 1921, the UF Hall of Fame has recognized seniors and graduate students who have consistently demonstrated an outstanding commitment to improving UF through campus and community involvement, participation in organized campus activities, and scholastic achievement.

This year, only 25 students were selected from a pool of 125 applicants. The UF Division of Student Affairs coordinates the award process and a committee comprised of faculty, staff, and students who are former award recipients reviewed the applications. The new Hall of Fame members will be honored at a ceremony in April.

Past award winners include George Smathers (1937), Stephen O’Connell (1938), Ralph Turlington (1942), Marshall Criser (1950), Steve Spurrier (1967), Susan Jacobs (1971), Danny Ponce (1973), Maruchi Azorin (1976), Dean Cannon (1990), Jason Rosenberg (1990), and Tim Tebow (2009).
