The University Women’s Club invites you and your guests to our Annual Open House, Wednesday, September 12 from 4:30 to 7 pm. Enjoy a new approach to Open House with sausage & cheese tastings from Fehrenbacher’s Butcher Shop, Belgian Chocolates from Christine Chagini and accompanying wines. Adam Fehrenbacher and Christine Chagini will also be available with information on how to incorporate these delicious new delights into your fall entertaining. As you visit with UWC friends and meet new ones we will announce exciting plans for our Count Down to 100 program activities including Six O’clock Scholar dinners, Special Interest Groups, new local touring and our annual Scholarship Awards.

The University Women’s Club (UWC), established in 1922, is open to any persons who are interested in promoting the goals of the University of Florida (UF). We are proud of our record of providing scholarships to undergraduate (15) and graduate (5) students, awarded at the Scholarship Luncheon in April. Each spring, the University Women's Club awards fifteen $1,000 scholarships to deserving undergraduate students in honor of the wives of past presidents of the University of Florida as well as wives of distinguished campus leaders. Throughout the year, we enjoy cultural opportunities and social contacts through our  2 “Six O’Clock Scholars” events, as well as a wide range of interest groups.

University Women’s Club also supports the UF community by donating to the UF U Matter, We Care Gator Career Closet and UF Field & Fork, the Pantry. Our efforts provide needed support directly to students, faculty and staff. 

Count Down to 100 begins this year in anticipation to UWC’s Centennial celebration in 2022. If you know someone new to UF or the Gainesville community, please invite them to come join us for wonderful tastings as we reconnect with present friends and welcome new ones to UWC.

The University Women’s Club Open House will be held at the University Woman's Club located on Woodlawn Drive between SW 2nd Avenue and Stadium Drive. A modified open house -small sandwiches and punch- will be served- from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for those who can't attend the early evening. Ample reserved parking is available in the Law School parking lot next to the tennis courts behind the clubhouse.  Enter from the SW 2nd Avenue.
