OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
November 10, 1934


To the Alumni, Patrons, and Friends
of the University:

The Blue Key Society and those in charge
of Homecoming are making an effort to eclipse
all previous celebrations this year. Among
our distinguished guests will be the Governor
of Georgia, the Governor of Florida, and the
President of the Georgia School of Technology.

On Friday evening the now famous Gator
Growl will be held as usual. Other splendid
attractions are being carefully planned.

While both football teams have suffered
defeat, both have shown flashes of brilliant
football, and there is every indication that
the game will be hard-fought.

I should like to urge every alumnus and
every patron who has a boy in the University
to make an extraordinary effort to be with us
this year. You will enjoy it and we will be
benefited by the contact with you. Let us make
this a Homecoming which will go down in
history.
Cordially yours,






President.
President.

At Homecoming each year, the University of Florida Student Body
is gratified to welcome back an ever-increasing number of its alumni,
parents, and friends. The tradition of cordial hospitality and genuine
friendliness which has characterized former Homecomings we offer as
an inducement, with the hope that our happiness in your coming will
contribute to your enjoyment of the features which are offered for your
pleasure. We hope that it will be for you a real coming home, the
renewal of all those pleasant contacts and friendships which you cher-
ish, and the meeting on common ground with new people whose senti-
ments are like your own-for Florida fellowship.
"BILL" SHERRILL,
President of the Student Body.


OUTSTANDING EVENTS IN RECENT PROGRESS OF THE UNIVERSITY
The University of Florida shows a record of constant progress and de-
velopment since its establishment. Because a widespread change has come
over the economic conditions of the country during the last six years, which
have been reflected necessarily in the educational field, it is felt that some
of the more outstanding achievements of the University would be of interest
and value to the citizens of the State, as an indication that Florida marches on.
An extended program of building construction has been under way to
meet the pressing problem of crowded facilities:
A new dormitory of modern equipment.
An infirmary which is considered one of the finest institutions
of its kind in the country.
Completion of the Library Building.
The large stadium known as Florida Field, with a seating
capacity of more than 20,000 spectators.
The athletic track and concrete grandstand.
The military buildings.
The swimming pool.
More than two miles of paved roads on the campus.
Construction of a central heating plant for the entire University.
A white way lighting system.
The P. K. Yonge Laboratory School, recently completed and
recognized as a far-reaching step in the progress of
education in the State.
The Student Union Building, under construction, which rep-
resents the culmination of many years' work to start such
a project.










A very large increase in the enrolment of the regular sessions during
this six-year period is further evidence of the advancing strides made by the
University. The following tabulation represents the enrolment since 1928:
1928 ......................................................... 2270
1929 ........... .................................................. ...................... 2257
1930 .......... ................................. 2388
1931 .............................................. 2558
1932 .......... .............. ................... 2628
1933 .............................................. 2371
1934 ........... ................................ 2721

At the same time there has been a very marked increase in the academic
standards. The grade point average for the student body is as follows:
1928-29 .......................................... .......... .801
1929-30 ........................................ .847
1930-31 ................................................................ .......... 1.081
1931-32 ...................................... .................. .. 1.122
1932-33 ... ......... .................. .................... 1.164
1933-34 ...................................... .. ................................... 1.107

During this same period the University has had five Rhodes scholarships.
During the past two years, the University conducted extension classes
in college subjects, for credit, in 56 counties of the State, with a total regis-
tration of 5031; at the same time, correspondence study students were enrolled
from 66 counties, with a registration of 5852, the total registration being
10,883.
The recently established endowment corporation gives promise of being
an important factor in the furtherance of the academic standards of the
University.
An Upper and Lower Division Curriculum and Honor Courses are now
offered. This is a recognized step in improved instruction.
The College of Law is now on a graduate school basis, which places its
entrance requirements on a par with those of any other law college in the
country.
The founding of the Institute of Inter-American Affairs, which has
brought meritorious recognition to the University, including the award of
the Fidac Medal of the Federation of Inter-Allied Countries, has been of
great service.
Other forward-looking policies have resulted in:
The establishment of the office of the Dean of Students.
The adoption of an All-Alumni Coaching staff in athletics.
The development of a broad intramural sports program.
A campus beautification program, which has resulted in a
marked improvement in the appearance of the grounds.
Greater forensic activities which have brought national recog-
nition to the University debating teams.
The inauguration of Freshman Week programs.
