If in the years to come this book serves to call to the minds of those who go out...
Campus life is an ever changing mood-neither a segment of time nor a concrete principal. A mood created by an interweaving of scenes and events, victories and defeats, hopes and fears, as well as duties and pleasures. In a single day or in four years, in a scheduled corner of the library or at a crowded party, scrutinizing each line of a text book, or taking notes during a valuable lecture-campus life can be found in various forms. Within the mood of people and places, time dissolves into an accumulation of memories, memories recalling the depth of campus life.

Campus life is filled with both victories and defeats. It is because success overshadows failure that the end result is so gratifying. A victory can be more appreciated because of previous defeats.

The football games which were lost are not remembered as vividly as the glorious victories. The football player, always striving to do his best not to let the school or his coach down, is appreciated, win or lose. The collection of treasured trophies, tokens of successful sporting events, are perhaps not all first places, but a second or third place is an indication of the conquering spirit which prevails.

Achieving the coveted membership into an honorary organization is symbolic of the drive to win and obtain higher goals. Academic as well as athletic victories furnish experiences memorable throughout one's lifetime.

the hopes and fears
Perhaps college days may best be described as times of hopes and fears. The future is constantly being thought of; and, as in any case, it is uncertain.

Each incident of campus life is the object of some emotional feeling. Typical classes must at one time or another evoke concern over an examination. Each sports event is regarded as a hope for victory.

Married students are indicative of the concern for the future. They are starting their lives together, constantly seeking better and better things for themselves and their children to come.

The buildings on campus are themselves symbols of the omnipotent feeling of hope in preference to fear. Although the feeling of fear pervades a student's outlook on thoughts of the future, he is more likely to hope for the greater achievements which are possible because of Cheerleaders keep your hopes up even when it looks hopeless. the valuable moments spent at the university.

that may become inseparably interwoven into our student life ...

The daily accumulation of thoughts and impressions create college memories. Numerous little things spark the world of recollection: that certain professor, coffee dates, a jeweled pin, the fight song, unfamiliar faces, extracurricular activity, studying late, or a smiling face. And, in the library, the classroom, the room in the dormitory-all these things, found in a setting of orange trees and palm, form the student's life from sunrise to the chime of midnight.

Student life begins in the dorm, here framed by a Gothic arch typical of the Florida architecture.

Scholarship and studies

The University of Florida is distinguished by its high academic standing. The many phases of university life prepare students to meet the future and to contribute to society.

the academic activities of the university, the Scholarship Convocation is held each semester. Grades are emphasized, and groups and organizations which merit scholastic achievements are recognized.
Periodically several of the seventeen colleges in the university hold fairs. Related subjects are displayed for the stimulation of interest in the particular fields.
University learning induces some to go on to greater things; achieving fame, prestige, and, most of all, receiving self-satisfaction.


Typical of the Florida studying habit is this Whether in the Library, in the dorm, or as here, on the lawn, the relaxed, casually clad freshman.

The years spent at college are the most enjoyable and profitable of youthful times. Studying comprises essentially the basic element of the learning process. Never again will a student have the opportunity to spend so much time satisfying his quest for knowledge under supervised instruction as he will while at the University.

The ultimate goal of every college student is the coveted diploma received at graduation. It is a symbol of many hours of studying, listening, pondering and questioning.

Those graduating will be the students, the thinkers, the creators of their generation. Born into a world they did not make, they will attempt to perpetuate the existing good, and create new and better ways to replace the evils of present day society. Graduation is both an end and a beginning; also a sad yet joyous occasion.

A closer view of graduates shows serious expressions
of wondering about the future.

Gator Gras, previously one of the less-popular events on campus, this year presented quite an interesting and varied program. The week swept by, leaving in its wake two sets of beauty queens, a new slate of Alumni officers, the agricultural Fair, and the Students Leaders Banquet.

"The New Frontier"~ was theme

Gator-bedecked floats and houses, multicolored fireworks, visiting dignitaries, and clashing football teams characterized Florida's 1961 Homecoming festivities. Popularized on campus was the University's theme, "Gators Appear On the New Frontier," and appear they did! Gators, flying in rocket ships; walking on hot, tin roofs; and galloping over the "Old West" composed many of the decorations.

Hours of toil on house decorations carried through
the theme of the new frontier.

University of Florida Homecoming was honored by the presence of visiting dignitary Lyndon B. Johnson.


Actual beginning of the weekend was Friday noon with the big parade. Bands from all over the state, cars filled with a Senator or the Governor, campus queens, and floats of gailycolored dimensions lined University Avenue. Delta Tau Delta, Phi Gamma Delta, and Kappa Alpha Theta won the float division of the Greek competition with their individualistic themes and beauty. The "Most Beautiful Float" award went to Delta Sigma Phi. The Blue Key Smoker, guided tours, and Swimcapades rounded out the afternoon. Introduction of Lyndon B. Johnson to the visiting alumni was done by Senator George Smathers. Former Governor Fuller Warren, acting as toastmaster for the Florida Blue Key Banquet kept guests entertained.

Mortar Board is the senior women's honorary at Florida. Founded in 1950 as Trianon, it became affiliated with the national Mortar Board in 1960. Sylvia Hardaway Marilyn Covo

To become a member of Mortar Board, second semester juniors must have distinguished themselves in at least one field of extra-curricular activity. Service this year included the Homecoming Ladies Buffet, the annual Christmas tree lighting, and a "big sister" program for foreign students. Margie Reitz served as President and Dean Sellers as sponsor.

Mortar Board members find their Christmas sing one A

Twice yearly, Phi Eta Sigma, National Freshman Men's Scholastic Honorary Fraternity, invites those men who have achieved a 3.5 or better honor point average during either their first or second semester to become members. Approximately two per cent of the freshman class fulfill the fraternity's scholastic requirements. The Phi Eta Sigma objectives are the recognition and encouragement of activities promoting outstanding scholarship on campus. The Florida chapter was founded in 1930 under the supervision of Dean R. C. Beaty.

A Long Hard Sea~son for Gators o

It was a frustrating season for Coach Ray Graves, his staff and team. Lack of depth and injuries to key personnel were very costly. There were bright moments in the season as individuals such as fullback Don Goodman, tackle and Capt. Jim Beaver and end Tom Smith played well throughout the year. All A
three will graduate this June. Looking towards next year the situation is very good. Quarterbacks Larry Libertore, Tom Batten and Bobby Dodd return as do a fine set of halfbacks led by Lindy Infante. Centers Bruce Culpepper and Tom Kelley will be back for more action as will guards Larry Travis, Wade Entzminger and Jack Thompson. Sophomore end Russ Brown has great potential and senior flankmen Sam Holland and Tom Gregory should be among the best in the SEC. And there's a hulking back named Richard Skelly who could be trouble to Florida's opposition in 1962.
