PUSH4IT

 What is PUSH4IT?

PUSH4it is an OAS initiative for first-year UF students with the goal of supporting and equipping students, who have the aim of graduating in 4 years, to reach their goals and develop throughout their matriculation.

PUSH4it staff and coaches tailor the PUSH4it initiative to each student’s needs and unique goals. Each student will be encouraged to meet with a PUSH4it staff member or coach each semester for guidance and encouragement. Students will also be able to choose from offered yearly experiences that will provide opportunities to grow in different academic and professional domains.
