Get Social

SF State welcomes new students with a weeks-long celebration dubbed GatorFest starting August 23. At the end of the week, we're also launching the Universitys second annual Instagram contest for a chance to win cool Gator gear. How to enter: Snap a selfie next to the bronze Gator statue in front of the Gym. Post it to Instagram using the hashtag #GatorFest2018. Photos will be reposted here and the photo that racks up the most likes wins. The contest runs August 24 through 31. (Only photos posted between the 24th and 31st will be considered.) Swipe for a contest entry from 2017. #GatorFest2018 #SFSU
