Description

Originally founded as "Salsamania" by Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc. and the Institute of Hispanic-Latino Cultures, this event was created to be a summer "Weeks of Welcome" (WOW) event for Hispanic-Latino students. In its second year it became a collaborative effort with the Asian American Student Union. As the event's popularity quickly grew, other multicultural student organizations joined the collaborative efforts. During its third year, the name was officially changed to Gatormania to reflect the variety of student organizations that were participating in the carnival celebration. In the time since, the event has grown to include various campus partners including Multicultural and Diversity Affairs, Student Activities and Involvement, and GatorNights! to continue the tradition of being the largest summer event on campus!
