This year's convocation took place in the Alligator Alley at the Florida Gym and was the first in-person scholarship convocation celebration in three years. The college recognized its generous donors and highly deserving scholars.
The event began with a performance by Accent A Capella, a UF student singing group. They performed a Gator-themed parody of the song "For the Longest Time."
With the support of the college's donors, the scholarship committee awarded 90 scholarships, six of which were new this year.

To end the event, attendees watched a thank you video put on by the college's staff and students. The video featured recipients reading letters written to their respective donors and plenty of Gator chomps.
