T et me guess you're nervous,

want to run around screaming
"This is so re.min' cool .
Who am 1 kidding? You're all
about the _creanung part
- Everything's probably crazy for
you right now. Sensory overload.
Actually, it's the beginning of a
fall -emester in Gainesville,
\ Here at the Alligator we under-
stand the hyperactive bustle that
accompanies each new school year
at Li If we made trendy. T-shirts,
they'd .sa\ something like "Covering
Fall Senime'ters Since 1906."
It's true that's how long the
Alhgator's been doing what it does.
And every year. we do i-hat we
can to hand down some of that collec-
tive knowledge to the news t batchl

After reading thLs. you'll be the
one in the dorm lounge with the in-
side scoop.- you'll be the one talking
shop about the cit and school you
just moved into
You'll also be better armed to go-

With a. strip of bar- just across
University A\ ehue. you'll need


to know how harsh the bouncers
around here are on 18-year-olds try-

With a campus that has more
buildings and well-kept secrets than
some cities, you'll probably enjoy our
guided tour of the landmarks and
local myths you'll soon learn to love.
And yes, there is a natural spring
buried underneath Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium.
So put down the campus map,
stop ogling your really attractive
classmates for a minute and prepare

The truth behind the rumors


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org
College is a mysterious place.
Among all the strange faces, un-
familiar buildings and abrupt new
freedom, you'll hear some tall tales
and false folklore.
But we're here to soft out the
fact from the fiction.
Here are the top UF legends
you might hear:
,: f1 .t : ..
The rumor: Norman Hall, an
old elementary school, is inhabited
by the ghosts of its old students.
It's said there's an old hospital
bed on the top floor that is mysteri-
ously left unmade every morning
after being re-made each day.
The truth: UF historian, Carl
Van Ness, said this is a common
Gator ghost story.
He said while Norman Hall
housed the education college and
the P.K. Yonge K-12 laboratory
school in the 1930's, to his knowl-
edge, there are no ghosts.

: ,,- .Y. .. .
The rumor: Many years ago,
a bloodthirsty killer came to
Gainesville and mass murdered
students.


The truth: During the first week
of fall classes in 1990, an ex-convict
named Danny Rolling came to
Gainesville and murdered five stu-
dents by stabbing them to death.
For three days, UF and SFCC
students lived in fear of being
raped and murdered.
Rolling's first two victims
were freshman girls, Christina
Powell and Sonja Larson, who
were asleep in their brand-new
.apartment when Rolling entered
through the unlocked door.
After killing Larson, Rolling
raped and murdered Powell.
Powell's parents, who had not
heard from their daughter, came to
Gainesville to check on her several
days later and discovered the dead
teenagers.
Nine hours later, police found
the body of Christa Hoyt, a 19-
year-old SFCC student. After he
raped and murdered her, Rolling
cut off Hoyt's head and placed it
on her bookshelf. The last two vic-
tims were found the next day.
Manuel Taboada, a 23-year-old
UF student, had been stabbed at
least 31 times. Then Rolling raped
and murdered Taboada's room-
mate, Tracy Paules.
Four years later, Rolling plead-
ed guilty to five counts of murder,
and he was executed by lethal
injection last October.


.... ., "..,,. ,, ,,"e a,
V.,1 ''; 3 ,'
The rumor: UF's Law School
was built atop an ancient Native
American burial ground. The spir-
its have vowed to haunt the place
until they're left to rest in peace.
The truth: Van Ness said there
is a Native American mound at
the site, but he called it a sort of
ancient junkyard. He said there
are no bodies under the earth.
But according to a plaque at the
comer of the campus at Southwest
Second Avenue and Northwest
25th Street, an aboriginal burial
mound rests 100 yards west of
the sign..
The sign states that the mound
was built around A.D. 1000 by
Alachua Tradition peoples, ances-
tors of the Potano Indians who
lived in the county during the 16th
and 17th centuries.
Van Ness said there are similar
mounds all over the state, many
much bigger than the one at UF.

p b hall
The rumor: Thomas Hall, one
of UF's two original buildings,
once housed a cafeteria. A boister-
ous cook named Steve is said to
haunt the place.
The truth: Van Ness said this
story was concocted as a joke.

Legend has it that every time a virgin graduates from UF, a brick falls
from Century Tower. No bricks have ever fallen.

The Dorm Life


A nitty, grittyjourney into residence-hall living at UF


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Hallway slip-and-slide.
Midnight water-balloon fights.
Indoor beaches.
Toto, I've got a feeling we're not home
with the folks anymore.
Ah, dorm life. The pungent scent of
day-old pizza fills the air. Breathe deeply,
and take it all in before you pack on those
pesky freshman 15.
By now, Mom's shed her last tear, and
Dad's given his last you'll-be-OK smile.
The three doors that lead to the world out-
side have clicked shut, and it all becomes
real.
You're on your own.
But before you string up those
Christmas lights or hang that token John
Belushi poster, there are a few things you
should know.

TERROR IN THE TILE
First and perhaps most importantly:
shower shoes.
It's scary out there in the real world,
but it's even scarierin the communal bath-
rooms. Puke, pubes and plantar warts are
lurking under every step.
Sure, those neon-green flip-flops


4 iva Geltzer, a UF freshman who lives in
Hume, said it's important to always grab
your soap, shampoo and loofah before
leaving the bathroom..
Geltzer said she heard about another
freshman in Jennings who took a spill after
running down the hall, clad only in a small
terry-cloth towel, to fetch her belongings.
Whether me towel remained on its owner
is unknov'n.
wouldn't usually top off the outfit you'd
wear when mingling with that cute coed
from down the hall, but you've already got
him or her in the shower.

RESIDENT ASSISTANCE
The second order of business: dealing
with the RA. Let me guess, his or her door
is already covered with all kinds of color-
ful nametags, stickers and photos from a
skydiving, water-rafting or camping trip.
Front-and-center is a dry-erase board
with "come by anytime!" written in all
capital letters with smiley faces for em-
phasis.
Don't let all that wholehearted gusto
fool you into thinking you'll get away
with said hallway slip-and-slides and
the like.
Some time in the near future, you'll be
chillaxin' in your room with 23 of your


newest friends drinking (soda, of course)
and listening to the coolest new rap song.
Then, a knock on the deliberately
locked door will send a hush through the
12-by-16-foot room.
Solo cups magically vanish, and every-
one stands up straighter as someone opens
the door.
There's the RA, clutching the infamous

"* Geitzer said she's experienced what
happens when the RA is away.
One particular R.A.-absen. weekend. one
of her friends decided to throw a dorm
party to -blow off some steam."
The fun began after dragging a keg up to
his lair on the fourth floor and jamming
20 people into the crevices between his
room's two beds, desks, dressers and
beer-pong table, Geltzer said.
As the night wore on, the room's resident
decided to dazzle his guests with some
alcohol-fueled guitar music, she said.
Geltzer said the guests became angry,
wildly hurling food around the room.
The outrage wvas short lived. and they
started a game of strip-poker. As flying
clothes replaced flying snacks, the room
was all smiles again.
Geltzer said the success of getting away
with a full-blown parry instilled audacity in
the freshmen that wasn't there before.

clipboard.
Maybe you'll get a slap on the-wrist or
written up for being too noisy.
For some, the terror will be enough
to end their partying ways. For others,
facing their RA and surviving will only
reinforce their boldness.

DON'T GET PUNK'D
Which brings us to dorm pranks.
Before continuing, a disclaimer: The
following is meant simply to inform and
entertain. The Alligator does not wish to
endorse any sort of mischief.
When living with hundreds of other
newly liberated young adults, life can get
interesting.
And by interesting, we're talking doors
completely duct-taped shut, whole rooms
filled with crumpled newspapers, trash-
cans turned into fish tanks and more.
So, how does one avoid falling victim to
the dorm prank?

"* Jared Wise. a UF freshman ,vho lives
in Springs. said the only pranls he's
witnessed were as innocent as switched
name tags and rultty messages lefi on
rhite boards.
You could keep your door locked, hire
security and sleep with one eye open, but
you'd probably still get duped.
SMaybe a better strategy is a preemptive

strike.
Start collecting newspapers now
(you've already got a head start with this
copy).
Get 'em so'good they couldn't possibly
one-up you.
Don't get too crazy, though. Destructive
pranks, such as firecrackers in toilets and
small fires, have earned students serious
criminal charges.

HEY, ROOMIE-
In some cases, the worst dupe of all
is the dope who you've been assigned to
room with.
Maybe he invites every new "friend"
he's met at "da club" over to your place.
Maybe she has screaming fights with
a long-distance lover every night on the
phone.

~ Wise said one of his friends was stuck.
with a tragically funny roommate situation.
In addition to red Spider-Man sheets,
pillows and blankets, the "weird guy" had
a life-size, plush Spider-Man doll that sat
beside him as he played video games all
day.
Geltzer said one of her friends complained
about a roommate who brought home
"really weird drunken people." Geltzer
said the roommate let the drunken people
sleep in her friend's bed.

If you're lucky, he or she will just listen
to loud German techno at all hours of the
night or steal your Cheetos.
How do you deal?
Many take the avoidance approach,
spending a lot of time wearing earplugs or
in the common room.


But please don't give in to passive ag-
gression.
Your best bet is to confront your of-
fender. Tell him to turn down the techno
a few notches.
Ask her politely to take her phone call
outside.
If all else fails, you can always request
a room switch.
Just make sure you always try to be
considerate.
If you don't, dorm pranks won't be the
only reason to sleep with your eyes open.

DORMROOM DIGS
Now, let's talk about something that
could potentially drain your finances:
dorm decor.

" Kate Tyler, a UF freshman who lived in
Hume over the summer, said most of her
dorm decorations were graduation gifts.
Photos, wall hangings and frames don't
occupy too much of her room, she said.
"There are a few things I don't know what
I'll ever do with," she added, citing her tool
set as unnecessary. "But my room's not
overcrowded."

As tempting as it might be to shell out
all your graduation money for as many
cliche posters as possible, resist.
Halfway through your freshman year,
you'll be sick of the periodic table of alco-
holic drinks hanging over your bed.
Do your wallet and your roommates a
favor and go minimal.
Rugs, beanbag chairs, shelves, hanging
beads, curtains and whatnot will take up
your small amount of space.
Aside from decor, some essentials that
might come in handy for most freshmen
are a desk lamp, TV, headphones, Easy
Mac and water balloons.

FOOD FIGHT, GOOD NIGHT
In reference to Easy Mac, keep in mind
that trying to find nourishment in a world
where potato chips are considered a veg-
etable isn't always easy.
You're probably broke because you
spent all your money on Jack Johnson
posters before reading this article, and
now you're hungry.
For those without meal plans, there are
plenty of ways to cook up hot and tasty
sustenance, even when all you have is

I Tyler said most of the time she takes
advantage of her meal plar at dining halls
on campus. For breakfast and snacks, she
turns to cereal to keep her satisfied.

the crumb-covered microwave and sticky
stove in the hall kitchen.
Popcorn, instant oatmeal and grilled-
cheese sandwiches are delicious, but you
might not want to limit yourself to one-
minute meals.
If you're feeling ambitious and know
how to boil water, pasta's easy.
If you want to make sure you're getting
nutrition, canned veggies aren't that bad.
Finally, remember everything tastes
better with peanut butter. Except maybe
the canned veggies, which will probably
sit unopened all four years of college.

DOING DIRTY LAUNDRY
Another thing that could sit unattended
for too long is your laundry.
To avoid ruining your garments, you
could let the laundry pile up until your
first visit home when you can take full ad-
vantage of your mother's instincts to take
care of her baby.
Before you start packing your car full of
dirty clothes, you should- know about the

IN Geltzer said she witnessed a classic
freshman blunder in Hume.
A fellow freshman girl, who "had never
cleaned a single speck of dirt in her whole
life," finally ran out of clothes to wear.
She bit the bullet and dragged her entire
wardrobe down to the laundry room.
Geltzer said the girl threw all her clothes
into one machine, resulting in what Geltzer
called "pink, smudged doll couture."

advantage to soaping up your own slacks.
Remember that cute coed from down
the hall? Chances are, he or she is dividing
whites and darks at this very moment.
Save Mommy the trouble and start
separating. It could be the start of a fresh,
clean romance.
Just make sure to hide your tighty-
whities.

DON'T BLINK
While the thought of your new room's cin-
derblock walls and moldy maroon curtains
might make your skin crawl, there will come
a day when you wistfully yearn for the con-
stant comfort of residence-hall camaraderie.
When you're older and move into an
eerily sterile apartment complex, unless
you're very lucky, you won't know all
your neighbors by name.
There won't be an ice cream social in
the middle of the week or water-balloon
fights keeping you up the night before an
exam.
One day, you'll come back. You'll visit a
sibling or meet up with a classmate.
And every creepy smell or campy nam-
etag will induce nothing but a smile.
So drink it all in ... just don't get

College Oxymora

The mad contradictions

that make it so great
etty ugly. Seriously funny. Tragically comical. Constantly
variable. Living dead. Clearly confused. Sweet sorrow.
Near miss. Freezer burn.
We all love to spot oxymora. I've listed a few of my personal
favorite oxymoronic phrases that I believe describe college life. I
guarantee I could find an oxymoron for every situation. Maybe
I need to get a life. Or maybe my obsession and seemingly
arbitrary mentioning of quirky, paradoxical phrases is more
than a random thought. Maybe when we look at the big picture
- if that's even possible, I'd call it a mural we can compare
the summation of our college experiences to one, long-winded
oxymoron.
Perhaps, freshmen, this is an introduction to the essence of
college life a wonderful, heartbreaking, never-ending, fleet-
ing, comical, tragic and almost indescribably describable expe-
rience. In the words of Conan O'Brien, and every late-night talk
show host, "We've got a great show for you tonight, folks!"
Yes, college provides more ups and downs than Jennifer
Lopez at the box office. The kicker is in the idea that sometimes
we cherish the bad times as much as the good times. Freshmen
may think I'm crazy. Graduates may think I'm crazy.Nursing
home residents may think I'm crazy. But this is my truth and
the one definitive thing I've learned thus far. If you're not con-
vinced, allow me to provide a few examples.
During my freshman year of college, I had the pleasure of
living in luxurious Broward Hall. Actually, I'd prefer to describe
Broward as a glorified detention center or penitentiary. Let's not
even discuss the bathrooms I've seen refugee camps cleaner
than Broward communal bathrooms. Yet, despite the grime,
mold and mildew, it was one of the happiest periods in my life.
I met amazing people who shaped my life and changed me for
the better. However, a dormitory is just not complete without
your usual assortment of weirdos and jerks. Broward boasted
a collection of some of the strangest and most arrogant people
I've encountered. Yet as freaked out as we were by the girl who
didn't wear shower shoes in the bathrooms or the one who
talked to herself in the hallway, we still loved it. We relished the
chance to discuss the girls next door who produced louder sex
noises than elephants during mating season.
My first year in college was complete with a 3 a.m. trip to
Shands for my roommate's alcohol poisoning, midnight swims
in campus fountains, sporadic runs to Beaty Market for ice
cream, hoarding food from Broward Dining, throwing common
room birthday parties and baking cakes in the wee hours of the
night, surviving the infamous Broward fire that left students
stranded in their pajamas outside the dorms for hours, carrying
dead-weight friends back to their dorms after a night of party-
ing too hard and anything else you can possibly imagine -or
can't even begin to imagine.
Like fingerprints, no freshman experiences are exactly alike.
In general, no college experiences will ever be exactly alike. Yet,
despite the diversity of day-to-day living, the culmination of all
our college memories, incidents and adventures truly teach and
alter us forever.
Ultimately, college will rob you of certain things; like dig-
nity (occasionally), reputation (now and then), ego (thankfully),
food (lunch is sometimes a luxury) and definitely money. Don't
fret though. When you look back, you'll laugh. Time makes
everything funnier. And even though you may find yourself
falling into the red, sooner or later probably later rather
than sooner you'll find yourself amused and inspired by
my own personal oxymoron richly poor. If you despise oxy-
mora, which renders my supposed thought-provoking efforts
meaningless, then forget everything I wrote, but remember this
what doesn't kill you makes a great story.

Freshmen, trust your classmates and definitely use a map


If you are an incoming freshman, today is
without a doubt the beginning of the great-
est four years of your life. You are about to
embark on an incredible journey where every-
thing you thought you knew will be turned
upside down, painted orange and blue, and
twisted into something you thought didn't
exist. Listen to the words, "It's great to be a
Florida Gator" and take those words to heart.


The sooner you buy into our time-honored
traditions, the greater your experience will be.
Now, some upperclassmen are probably going
to try to pull a few pranks on you. They may
give you bogus directions. Don't let this get to
you. It's a sign of love, and someday you will
understand.
Just between you and me, it's a popular
trick to tell freshmen that the New Classroom


Danny Building is located
Beaulieu north of University
letters@alligator.org Avenue. That wouldn't
even be on campus.
Don't be fooled. The
New Classroom Building is right next to the
New Physics Building on the comer of Gale
-Lemerand and Museum.
I hope your years at UF treat you well. Just


remember, you get out of it what you put into
it. And carry a campus map for the first week
or so. Sure, maps might seem a little dorky,
but something tells me you might need one,
especially if you're following my advice on the
whereabouts of the New Classroom Building.
Danny Beaulieu is a junior majoring in
philosophy.

Guest Column

Student Body president: Get involved, go at your own pace.


As your Student Body president, it's my pleasure to wel-
come you back to another championship year at UF!
I would also like to congratulate all the new mem-
bers of The Gator Nation. Even before you move into your
residence hall or roll out of bed for your first 8:30 a.m. class,
you have been chosen as a part of the most academically com-
petitive class ever enrolled at UF.
The key to college is simple: Cater to your skill sets. Take
the classes that appeal to you. This isn't the time for you to try
and please other people or take classes that don't interest you.
UF has an amazing selection of courses to choose from, and
your only limitations should be the ones you place on yourself.
Even if you don't know what you want to study, take some
time to have fun with your education and explore the options
that are presented to you rather than restricting yourself.-
Of course, college isn't just about which classes you take


S or what major you choose. With more
than 50,000 students hailing from every
comer of the globe, you'll never find
another place with such an active, di-
verse, energetic community. There are
so many opportunities available for you
Ryan Moseley to meet other students around campus
Speaking Out who share your interests. The friend-
ships you create and the experiences
you shape here will help you succeed,
whatever path your life takes.
I can't begin to explain how important it is that you get in-
volved and become a part of this community. UF offers more
than 650 student organizations, including skydiving and swing
dancing, and if for any reason one of those cubs doesn't ap-
peal to you, you can start your own. You will meet people who .


share your interests and passions. Fraternity and sorority life is
thriving, and there are a number of leadership honoraries and
cultural organizations that are always excited to welcome new
and veteran students into their communities. There are always
people who want to help if you get overwhelmed. If there's
ever anything I can do to improve your time at UF, my door
is always open. Also, remember your professors, your friends
and your family will do everything in their power to help you
succeed.
When you look back at your time at UF, there will always
be one professor you write to when you need advice. You will
always remember the first time you walked out of a lecture you
found fascinating. Try not to get weighed down and miss these
moments and these people because they are what define your
college experience.
SRyan Moseley is the Student Government president.

UF President on opportunities


TAhether you are a new or returning
student, you have picked a great year
to be here. We are not only national
champions in football and basketball, but we are
also expanding our academic offerings, growing
our research program and otherwise offering_
more to enrich your college experience than ever
before.
Your choice to attend or remain at UF shows
that you are already aware of this university's
superb quality. But just to give you a sense of
how much is available to you as students, here
are a few facts and statistics you may find eye-
opening.
We offer more than 100 undergraduate de-
gree programs, 200 graduate programs and 30
combined degree programs.
We have dozens of intramural sports oppor-
tunities, including archery, flag football, tennis,
street hockey and weight lifting. Indoor and out-
door swimming pools and numerous facilities
located around campus provide ideal settings
for these and other sports.
More than 750 student clubs and orga-
nizations offer a huge wealth of extracur-
ricular opportunities for students. These orga-
nizations include the Chinese American Student
Association, Engineers Without Borders and the
Florida Swing Dancing Club.
Students can study and conduct research at
no fewer than nine libraries on campus, includ-
ing the newly renovated Library West, complete
with a Starbucks. They may also wish to stop by
the newly renovated Hub, where flat-screen tele-.
visions broadcast news and programming from
around the world.
While there is plenty to do on this campus,
we offer global education opportunities through
many study-abroad programs. UF has two inter-
national centers, one in Paris and one in Beijing,'


,"'"' and ties to dozens of
u'ii v universities in Europe,
S" Asia and Africa.
~' want to stress that
Swe continue to improve
and grow even as.our
Bernie Machen enrollment stabilizes at
Speaking Out around 50,000 students..
Last academic
year, for example, we
opened the largest research building in the state
of Florida, the 280,000-square-foot Cancer &
Genetics Research Complex.
We successfully debuted a new scholarship
program, the Florida Opportunity Scholars, sup-
porting qualified students who are the first in
their families to attend college.
And we continued to set ourselves apart as
one of the nation's leading public universities
in our efforts to become more environmentally
sustainable.
Traffic and parking are always big issues on
campus, especially at the start of the school year.
I would like to encourage all students to take
advantage of our excellent bus system.
Anyone can ride for free on campus, and stu-
dents with a Gator 1 card can ride free anywhere
in Gainesville.
There are more than 100 stops on our campus
alone, and the bus is often the fastest way to get
around.
For new students, these first few weeks of the
2007-08 year will be an adjustment, but I prom-
ise this period will pass quickly and you will
soon feel enthusiastic about the journey ahead.
For returning students, I am very glad you are
back, and I know you will make the most of your
opportunities here.
Again, welcome, and Go Gators!
Bernie Machen is the president of UF.

Tim Tebow makes life


for men at U
I'm mad as hell, and I'm not go-
Sing to take this anymore!"
The words of Howard Beale
in the 1976 classic "Network" per-
fectly summarize the rising anger
of the UF male population now
subjected to unfair comparisons
with Tim Tebow on a daily basis.
For those of us who have been
studying abroad, finishing high
school or living under a rock for
the last year, Tim Tebow not only
has "dashing good looks" and "a
great ass," according to anonymous
female sources, but he just happens
to be the star quarterback of,the UF
football team. Oh, and did I men-
tion that he received strong grades
in high school, is deeply religious
and happens to be modest about
his success?
If you don't believe my hype,
please Google Tim Tebow the
third entry- down is a Web site
dedicated to Chuck Norris-esque
Tim Tebow one-liners. A few of
my personal favorites include
"Tim Tebow's hand is the only one
that beats a royal flush," and "Tim
Tebow can divide by zero." '
So where does this leave us "nor-


F frustrating
Ryan Ross mal" (see: non-
Speaking Out football) guys?
Screwed, that's
where.
While Hollywood megastars such
as George Clooney, Orlando Bloom
and Brad Pitt are a distant dream for
women, Tebow is a living, breathing
nightmare for Florida men. Certain
things are unfair in life. The younger
child inevitably gets beat up by his
or her older sibling. Some people are
forced to grow up impoverished. O.J.
was acquitted. However, in the most
objective way I can possibly say it,
this is a much greater injustice.
I happen to be a "handsome
young man whom any girl would
want to date" (thanks, Mom!), but
these standards are a bit too high. No
longer can I even enjoy Florida foot-
ball with females, as they inevitably
comment on something completely
unrelated to Tebow's on-field ability.
Do I have any real problems with
Tim Tebow? Of course not! He is a
polite, upstanding, tough-as-nails
Gainesville hero. But if he could tone
it down just a tad, there would be a
lot of appreciative men out there.
Ryan Ross is a sophomore majoring
in political science.

Potato and French Fries: campus landmarks to know


By VALERIE JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer

That uncomfortable feeling creeps up on
you again. You haven't felt it since your first
day of high school, but now it's back, and it
almost knocks you out of your new pair of
Dockers. It's your first day at UF, and you
have no idea where your next class is.
Attending a new school is scary enough,
but not knowing your way around the cam-
pus of the nation's third-largest university
can be downright daunting. By familiarizing
yourself with a few campus landmarks, you
can successfully and confidently find your
way around campus and become a citizen of


The Gatoi Nation.
One of the most important buildings on
campus is the J. Wayne Reitz Union. The
Reitz Union is located at the center of campus
and serves as a recreational and informa-
tional mecca for students.
Its food court includes popular chain
restaurants, such as Wendy's, Subway and
Taco Bell.
' To take care of business, you can find
the UF Bookstore, Student Activities Center,
Career Resource Center and STA Travel.
The Reitz Union also has a bowling alley
and arcade, and shows free movies. Also,
several organizational fairs and shows take
place on the Colonnade, which is attached to
the Reitz Union.
If you hear a UF student say, "Meet me at
the French Fries," they're not referring to an
on-campus food court, but a large sculpture.
The structure is actually named "Alachua"
and consists of sprawling yellow spines lo-
cated between the Marston Science Library
and the Computer Science and Engineering
Building. It was created by sculptor John
Henry, whose intent was to "express the exu-
berance of Alachua County's multi-faceted
cultural personality."
Close to the "French Fries" is Turlington
Plaza, which has' the highest people-traffic
ratio in the entire state of Florida during peak
class hours.
On any given day, you can find protesters,
clubs and organization information booths,
or even a competitive game of four-square
being played.
Turlington is also home to what most
students call "The Potato." "The Potato" is
actually a 30,000-year-old, 10-ton chert rock
that was a gift to the UF geology department
from the Crushed Stone Corporation.


Just across the street from Turlington
Plaza is Century Tower, which is undeniably
one of the campus's most recognizable land-
marks. It was built in 1953 to commemorate
UF's 100th anniversary and was dedicated
to UF students killed in World Wars I and II.
A cast-bell carillon, which is played by hand
from a keyboard just below the bell chamber,
was installed in 1979.
The bells chime every 15 minutes and can
be heard from most parts on campus.
Next to Century Tower is the Plaza of the
Americas, which was named after the first
meeting of the Institute of Inter-American
Affairs in February 1931. Students planted
21 live oaks on the plaza and dedicated them'
to the 21 American nations in existence at the
time.


'L. v;~ '*...d~L


For a place to appreciate nature on UF's
campus, take advantage of the many benches
and docks that line the peaceful Lake Alice.
You might even see an alligator drag itself out
of the water to bathe in the sunlight.

LANDMARKS, from Page 10

Located on the shores of Lake Alice, the
Baughman Center is an intimate shelter
open to everyone. The 96-seat, 2,000-square-
foot structure features gothic-influenced
design and more windows than wall space,
providing a look at the surrounding trees.
The building is meant for meditation and is
nondenominational, and many couples have.
been married there as well.


Across Lake Alice from the Baughman
Center is the largest occupied bat house in
North America. Go to the Bat House at dusk
when hundreds of bats fly out of the house
toward the lake to begin their nightly hunt
for insects.
But when people hear UF, they don't.
think bats. They think Gators. With the recent
Gator Nation domination of the sports world,
many new students may recognize the two
main athletic centers on campus.
The Stephen C. O'Connell Center re-
sembles a large white turtle shell rising


above the surrounding trees. Home of the
two-time men's basketball national cham-
pions, the O'Connell Center, also called
"The 0-Dome," covers an impressive 3.6
acres.
The O'Connell Center can accommodate
almost 12,000 spectators attending sporting
events such as volleyball, basketball and
gymnastics.
Across Gale Lemerand Drive sits the other
pantheon of UF sports Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium, home of the 1996 and 2006 football
national champions.


"The Swamp," nicknamed by former
football coach Steve Spurrier, seats more
than 88,000 Gators fans and is one of the
five largest college stadiums in the coun-
try.
During the first couple weeks of classes,
you might still need to duck into bathrooms
and secretly consult a campus map to find
your way around.
Even though knowing about the Bat
House won't help you find your sixth-period
class, there is much more to UF's campus
than classroom locations.

Fake ID could get you a drink or a misdemeanor


By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

At Gator City, memorizing it
won't be enough.
And Balls may ask for another
form of identification.
But the guy at Common
Grounds may just laugh.
In Gainesville, the influx of fall
freshmen brings a flood of fake
IDs as the 18-year-old masses
try to pass themselves off as legal
drinkers.
Jason Rockhill, an owner of
Common Grounds, a popular mu-
sic venue, said sometimes his first
reaction to a fake ID is to laugh.
The bad ones, Rockhill said,
end up on the wall of fake IDs in
Common Grounds. The purpose
of the wall is to deter
Student people who use fake
Life IDs from trying it at his
venue.
"We used to get a
ton of them," Rockhill said.
Gainesville Police Department.
spokesman Keith Kameg said legal
penalties also exist for students
who use fake IDs. Often the charge
is a misdemeanor, he said.
Kameg said police conduct spot
checks on nights when going out to
bars is popular, and they usually
catch about 10 to 15 people when
they go out.
While some students have had
their fake IDs taken away, and
some have even been charged with
a misdemeanor, one local resident
named Frank said he has been
lucky.
Frank, who would only go by
the name on his fake ID, said he
knows many people who have had
their fake IDs taken away.
Frank would only flash his ID
for a moment as he sat at the bar,
drinking a beer. While it was faded
and looked like it had been through


the wash, the picture, or at least
what remained of it, bore a striking
resemblance to its owner.
Though the hair was longer, it
was easy to see why the ID .had
worked for Frank.
While some choose to purchase
or create manufactured IDs, Frank
said it's often easier to find some-
one who looks like you and use
that ID.
Ryan Shields, who occasionally
handles the bartending and securi-
ty duties at Balls, said very few fake
IDs are made at UF. He said many
are passed down through friends,
relatives or through the sorority or
fraternity system.
Shields said often he will quiz
people on suspicious IDs, such as
date of birth or home address, but
on occasion will request a second
ID.
Shields said Balls had a meeting
at the start of summer B to discuss
fake IDs because of the influx of
freshmen.
One of the worst onet he's ever
seen was a 5-foot-2 blonde woman
trying to be a 5-foot-ll brunette.
Sometimes people will give him
an attitude about their IDs, but
Shields said he offers the challenge
of finding a police officer to verify
their identities.
Matt Hart, who helps with secu-
rity at Gator City, said he deals with
a lot of fake IDs usually 10 to 15 a
night. IDs won't get taken away un-
less the person trying to use it gives
him an attitude about it, Hart said.
Hart said he's seen IDs printed
on the back of Blockbuster cards,
which is why he asks people to take,
their IDs out of their wallets. Not
everyone respects Hart's authority,
though.
Some people are insistent about
their IDs, using their knowledge of
their IDs as proof of legitimacy, he
said. But that won't cut it.
"I can memorize an ID," Hart

said.
Rockhill at Common Grounds
said he's even seen some IDs print-
ed on a piece of paper. ,
One of the worst ones Rockhill
saw was an ID Frankenstein. He
said the person had taken a picture
from the ID and attached it to an
over-21 ID. While there is no special
ceremony for putting fake IDs on
the wall, which greets attendees as
they enter the venue, Rockhill said
it has existed for several years.
He said the idea for it came to
him while he was road manager
'for the local band Hot Water Music.
He spotted a wall of fake IDs at
Emo's in Austin, Texas, and de-
cided to bring the idea to Common
Grounds.


Rockhill couldn't say how many
fake IDs he sees on an average
night, since it usually depends on
what band is playing. However, he
said the wall has been successful in
deterring people from using their
fake IDs at Common Grounds.
Word travels, he said, and when
people spend a lot of time looking
forward to a certain show and get
kicked out for using a fake ID, they
tell their friends.
A bump where numbers have
been changed is a giveaway of a
fake ID, Rockhill said.
Kameg said bars in Gainesville
tend to be good about enforcing
laws against fake IDs.
Florida Department of Business
and Professional "Regulation


spokeswoman Alexis Antonacci
said punishments exist for bars that
accept fake IDs.
Antonacci said the first occur-
rence canbe up to a $1,000 fine with
a license suspension for seven days.
The second, she said, is for up to
$3,000 and a suspension of 30 days.
If a bar has a third occurrence, its
license can be revoked.
The threat of suspension has
made many bars throughout the
state take a strict stance on fake
IDs.
Rockhill said after looking at
myriad IDs, the fake ones jump out
at you.
"Everyone thinks they're re-
ally slick," he said, "and they're
just not."

The road to putting UF back in the green


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

While the incoming freshmen took their
SATs and applied to college, UF fought to raise
tuition in hopes of providing better resources to
its students.
Though a bill that will incrementally increase
UF tuition starting fall 2008 passed, UF is still $20
million to $30 million in debt.
What seemed an uphill battle against The
Man for UF began with a bill proposed by state
Sen. Steve Oelrich, a Republican who represents
Alachua County. The bill would have allowed
UF to charge students $1,000 a year in addition
to tuition through the Academic Enhancement
Program.
While the bill didn't specifically mention UF
or the program, it would have given the Florida
Board of Governors the State University
System's highest governing body the final
say on such fees. The Board of Governors had
approved the Academic Enhancement Program
on Dec. 1, 2006.
Currently, the state Legislature must approve
any tuition increases or new fees.
The program's purpose was to counterbal-
ance UF's low in-state tuition of about $3,200
per year, which ranked as the cheapest in-state


tuition on USA Today's 2006 College and Tuition
Fees Survey.
All incoming UF students would have been
charged the additional cost, unless they are re-
ceiving need-based financial aid.
Neither Bright Futures, which pays tuition
for about 96 percent of UF students, nor Florida
Prepaid would have covered the cost.
Money earned from the program would have
been used to hire 200 faculty and 100 academic
advisers.
The program faced resistance
Stat before coming to the state Senate's
News Higher Education Appropriations
News Committee, where the majority of
the members opposed it. -
But it passed with a 3-to-1 vote April 24,
after the bill had been revised and renamed the
Tuition Differential Program.
Unlike the Academic Enhancement Program,
the Tuition Differential Program will incremen-
tally raise tuition by 40 percent about $1,000
- over four years, as long as the annual increase
does not exceed 15 percent about $400.
And though it passed through the state
Senate and House of Representatives with ma-
jority votes, it was nearly left at a standstill.
Gov. ,Charlie Crist, who proposed a tuition
freeze in his budget, had threatened to veto the
bill, saying it was "doomed."


After other state universities' administrators,
including Florida State University president T.K.
Wetherell, expressed their support for the bill,
the Tuition Differential Program managed to
evade Crist's veto threat and become a law.
However, UF lost out on about $2.7 million
for the 2007-08 academic year when the start
date was pushed to fall 2008.
At the UF Board of Trustees meeting in June,
UF President Bemie Machen announced UF was
$20 million to $30 million in the red.
Machen said budget cuts would be made in
every part of UF, including academic programs
and energy costs.
On Aug. 8. he announced the members for a
task force that will decide where the budget cuts
would be made. Days later, he announced UF
was officially on a hiring freeze.
On July 6, former Sen. Bob Graham filed a
lawsuit against the Florida Legislature to strip it
of its tuifion-setting power.
During a July 10 meeting, the Board of
Governors joined Graham, who was the leading
proponent of the constitutional amendment that
created the board in 2002.
UF officials have refused to comment.
Boards of trustees around the state normally
follow the Board of Governors, but whether the
trustees would follow the board's decision to
disregard the Legislature remains unknown.

Enhancement Program

Breaking down the largest-ever SG budget


By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Alligator Writer "
dculclasure@alligator.org

UF students have more than
12 million reasons to get involved
at UF this year, according to one
Student Government official.
SG will be in charge of a $12.66
million budget for the 2007-2008
year, said Student Body Treasurer
E.J. Walicki.
"We say it all the time, but
you're paying for all of this,"
Walicki said. "Take advantage
while you're here."
This year's budget is the larg-
est in SG history. The 2006-07
budget was about $12.1 million,
Walicki said.
The rise- resulted from a 5
percent increase in the Activity &
Service Fee the maximum per-
centage raise per year decided by
the Board of Trustees, UF's high-
est governing body.
The A & S Fee of $9.45 per cred-
it hour is paid by each UF student
to fund the budget, he said.
The budget is divided into


sections known as the "Big
Three," which includes SG, the
Reitz Union and the Division of
Recreational Sports.
The money is spread around
almost evenly, with each of the
Big Three receiving about $4 mil-
lion, he said.
Student Government
In the SG branch, Walicki said
most of the money $1.3 million
- is budgeted for student orga-
nizations. For example, any club
within a college receives a cut of
this money, such as the Geology
Club in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences. Multicultural
groups like the Jewish Student
Union also fall under this clas-
sification.
He said an additional $1 mil-
lion is about evenly split between
Accent and Student Government
Productions, which are respon-
sible for bringing speakers, co-
medians, musicians and other
entertainment acts to UF.
SOutside of student groups, SG
has a $1.2 million operating bud-
get to pay for employee salaries,


office supplies and lobbyists in
the Florida Legislature. The rest
of SG's $4 million chunk goes
toward miscellaneous fees, such
as special budget requests from
student groups and Student Legal
Services.
Reitz Union-
Walicki said the Reitz Union
sees smaller but more widespread
payouts than SG. Employee sala-
ries, building maintenance and
utilities receive budgets ranging
from about $45,000 to $75,000.
Similar budgets are given to
the Reitz Union game Room, the
Center for Student Involvement
and the Office of Student
Activities, he said.
The Office of Student Activities
manages several programs
around the Reitz, including leisure
courses such as Home Bartending
and the Travel and Recreation
Program, known as TRiP, which
organizes outdoor excursions for
students.
Rec Sports
The final branch of the Big


Three, Rec Sports, gives the largest
chunk of change to its staff of full-
time professionals and more than
700 part-time student employees,
he said. Rec Sports receives'about
$1.2 million in salaries for jobs
such as teaching yoga classes,
refereeing intramural sports and
checking out equipment.
Rec Sports also shells out
about $240,000 to maintain and
equip its facilities, including the
Southwest Recreation Center,
Lake Wauburg and the Broward
Outdoor Recreation Complex. It
also pays nearly $140,000 in utili-


ties for these facilities.
Some features of these sites
include basketball courts, softball
fields, a skate park, weight rooms
and kayaks.
Additionally, Rec Sports has a
budget of about $225;000 to cover
supply and coaching fees for its
nearly 40 sports clubs, such as
lacrosse, soccer and fencing.
Walicki said any leftover
money goes into a rainy-day ac-
count. This money, about $2.53
million, has limited use for special
requests or emergency payments,
he said.

Safety tips for new students


By MORGAN THIBODEAUX
Alligator Contributing Writer

With the largest UF freshman class ever
upon us, the University Police Department is
taking new strides to promote campus safety.
In the, wake of the Virginia Tech tragedy,
UPD is now conducting an active-shooter
training program.
The program is presented by Capt. Jeff
Holcomb, public information officer for UPD,
and explains what the plan is in case of a simi-
lar campus emergency.
However, the most frequent crime com-
mitted on campus is theft. The main reason
for this is people leaving their property unat-
tended, Holcomb said.
During the time when many students are
moving in and out of dorms and other resi-
dences, it's common for people to make many
trips to and from their vehicles when they're
unpacking. But leaving car doors open or un-
locked is a convenient way for thieves to take
other's belongings, he said.
"Its a pain to have to keep shutting doors,
but unless someone is standing by the car
watching, it's better to keep them cosed,"
Holcomb said.
Bicycles are the most stolen item on cam-
pus, followed by small electronics, such as


iPods, and laptop computers.
One way to secure items in case of theft
is to either have them engraved or registered
through the police department. Items can be
registered online, and engraving can be done
at the UPD station on Museum Road.
Another issue many parents and students
are concerned about is sexual assault. Between
2003 and 2005,16 forcible sexual offenses were
reported. Though the number has decreased
over the years, Holcomb said even one is too
-many for his book.
He advises parents of both male and fe-
male students to be wary of what
Public -could happen.
&t.i; .' "Males think they won't be
sexually assaulted, and -more
-times than not, they won't. But males are nor-
mally the ones charged with these crimes, so
everyone should be aware," he said.
Alcohol is normally involved in these types
of crimes, but watching drinks and staying
with friends is a good way to prevent them
from happening, he said.
SNAP, the Student Nighttime Auxiliary
Patrol, is a service students can call and re-
quest either a walking or riding escort any-
where on campus. Though the service is only
.available on campus, it provides students with
a safe way to get around when it's late.

* Stay tuned in to your surroundings. Be alert for danger.
*Stick to well-lit walkways. Avoid isolated, wooded or dark areas. Don't take short cuts,
*.When you run or jog, never do so alone. Avoid running at night. if you must run at
night, use the lighted areas of campus and run with others. Avoid isolated areas and
never wear headphones when running.
* Most importantly, listen to your instincts. If you feel there is a problem, get away.
Rachel Greenfield Alligaior Slatt


The Rape Aggression Defense program,
better known as RAD, is a course students can
take for free to learn self-defense. It's a 12-hour
program separated into three classes. The first
class familiarizes students with the program,
the second teaches students self-defense
moves; and by the third class, students get
to practice what they learned. The program is
offered about once a month and the schedule
can be found on the UPD Web site.
Another safety tool on campus is the
emergency phones. There are more than
200 emergency phones located throughout
.campus, and they can easily be identified
by their bright blue lights. When someone
uses a phone, the dispatch center knows the
exact location of that phone. In less than two


minutes, an officer will report to the location,
Holcomb said.
To protect students living on campus,
dorms use an electronic card access system.
Swipe cards are used for access to dorms and
floors, said Caitlin Murphy, a UF graduate
who worked for the UF Housing Department
for three years.
One common problem is students allow-
ing "floaters" or "tailgaters" into the building.
Murphy urges residents to escort their guests
into the building so uninvited people don't
make it up to the donrm rooms.
By utilizing the resources UPD provides
and throwing in a good amount of common
sense, it should be easy for all UF students to
stay safe on campus.

require an officer to be able to
hear the noise 200 feet away from
the property line.

In terms of DUIs,

killed by a drunken driver dur-
ing the men's basketball national

The punishment for a DUI is a

Bikes and buses popular ways for getting around town


By HOLLY GIBBS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Incoming students might find them-
selves in the midst of some scary new
places, but getting around Gainesville
shouldn't be scary at all.
The city and UF have developed
a number of ways for students to get
around town and campus, whether you
have a car.
"I use my bicycle to get
around campus because it's
the best way to do it. Parking
is so bad, and it's cheaper to
ride my bike."
Richard Drake
WUFT FM's Voice of the Arts.

Among the easiest and most cost-ef-
fective methods of getting around town
is taking the Regional Transit System
buses.
RTS routes to every major apartment
complex in Gainesville are available,
and buses go downtown, to the mall
and to campus seven days a week. UF
students can ride the bus for free with
their Gator 1 Card.
RTS also offers the Later Gator ser-


vice, with four routes that take students
downtown and back Thursday through
Saturday from 8 p.m. until 2:20 a.m. This
free service aims to provide students
with a safe, sober ride home.
Gator Aider, another RTS service,
provides rides to and from Gators foot-
ball games. The route drops riders off at
the stadium on game days and returns
them to one of three Park-n-Ride loca-
tions. The charge is $5 per game or $20
for a season pass. Gator Aider is also
available for Gator Growl.
UF also offers a service for students
who need to get around campus after
dark called the Student Nighttime
Auxiliary Patrol, or SNAP SNAP pro-
vides escorts upon request and is staffed
by students under the supervision of
UPD. Students can call 392-SNAP from
6:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. to get anywhere
around campus for free.
Biking is also a popular means of get-
ting around campus. The Transportation
and Parking Services Web site recom-
mends either hybrid bicycles, which can
be used on paved roads and also for trail
riding, or folding bicycles, which can
easily be stored in small places.
"I use my bicycle to get around cam-
pus because it's the best way to do it,"
said Richard Drake, WUFT FM's Voice
of the Arts. "Parking is so bad, and it's
cheaper to ride my bike."


Buses pass through the Reitz Union bus stop on July 25.


Breaking down Gainesville towing


By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Writer

Finding a place to park in Gainesville is like a blind
date gone terribly wrong it's stressful, your hands feel
clammy and you have to fight the overwhelming desire
to curl into the fetal position.
But have no fear, new students. Sure, Gainesville may
seem like a war zone of two-hour parking limits, 25-cent
meters and citations, but all you have to do is read the
signs.
For city parking, there are five zones surrounding UF
that require street permits from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday
through Friday.
Zone-specific permits cost $16.75 per year and can be
purchased at 306 NE SixthAve. People interested in buy-
ing one must bring a driver's license, vehicle registration
and proof of residence.
However, for many students, parking on campus
seems to be a better alternative.
A campus parking restriction is enforced weekdays
from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. unless a sign nearby indicates
o- otherwise.
Annual parking decals cost $110, and semester decals


cost $55. To purchase decals and learn more about on-
campus parking, visit www.parking.ufl.edu.
But what about those poor, unfortunate souls who
get towed?
A recent city ordinance has been passed that offers
students more protection when it comes to getting
towed by roam-towing trucks, which prowl parking lots
across the city.
Public The standard towing fee is $76.
Safety Companies now must accept debit and
credit cards, such as Visa and MasterCard,
as well as cash.
Tow drivers must also take pictures of the parking
infraction for their records.
When you call to pick up your vehicle from the lot,
the tow company must respond and release your car
within the hour.
Also, if you happen to reach your vehicle before the
tow operator can physically connect it to the truck, you
have the right to your vehicle and don't have to pay any
fee.
According to the new regulations, tow companies
must also register their trucks and drivers with the
Gainesville Police Department.

Flexcar service


offered on campus

By SUSAN MARTINEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Editor's note: This story was originally published in the June
19 issue of the Alligator.
Preview students and their parents are the new focus of
Bernie Machen's green effort.
While UF's Department of Transportation and Parking
Services sells parking decals during preview, employees also
inform parents about other transportation options, such as
Flexcar, said Allan F Preston, coordinator of the UF Physical
Plant Division.
Flexcar is a car-sharing service based on
Summer campus with an hourly rate to use a vehicle.
Catch-up "Parents love it," Preston said.
Parents sometimes don't want their children
to have cars at school, but Flexcar assures them their children
will have access to a car on campus in case of an emergency, said
Scott Fox, director of Transportation and Parking Services.
The department hopes to convince incoming students to
leave their cars at home because Machen wants to reduce en-
ergy usage and increase fuel efficiency, Fox said.
Preston said the goal is to support Machen's sustainability is-
sue through the UF Fleet Management program, which is trying
to reduce the number of on-campus university vehicles and in-
crease the use of alternative transportation, specifically Flexcar.
Flexcar kicked off in January and is fully funded by the Fleet
Management program, Preston said, which pays $800 a month
to keep eight Flexcar vehicles on campus.
"We want those low-mileage, hunchback vehicles to go
away," he explained.
Consequently, it became expensive for colleges to keep un-
used vehicles, he said. The program reduced the number of cars
on campus and increased parking in some carpool zones.
Preston said someone must become a member of the site and
pay an annual $35 membership fee to use the vehicles, but UF
faculty and staff do not have to pay the fee.
Vehicle reservations are made online, and it is $5.50 an hour
or $55 for 24 hours unless the driver exceeds 150 miles, Preston
said. The rate covers 150 miles driving, gas, insurance, main-
tenance, a reserved parking space, roadside assistance and 24-
hour customer service.


A roam towing sign is posted behind a plaza on West University Avenue on June 11.

Recreational sports at UF


N UF HAS NEARLY 40 CLUB TEAMS.

By JENNIFER BINGAMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The sun was warm above the salty
breeze of the Atlantic Ocean. Courtney
Andren mounted her board and began
to paddle out into the foot-high waves. A
wave came up strong enough to push her
to shore, but the surf was so flat she fell
forward, plowing her face straight into the
sand.
"It was embarrassing to come in with
my face gushing blood in 1-foot surf," said
Andren, a UF finance senior.
Weekends like this, minus the short
waves and facial injuries are typical for
Andren, a former Roxy--.ponrsored surfer
who joined the F Sur tC I u b in 2006;
The club was a refuge for the Brevard
Community College transfer student.
Accustomed to living a mere 10 minutes
from good waves, her new Gainesville
home was more land and less surf.
But when she brought home the
nearly 3-foot-tall trophy for the National
Scholastic Surfing Association East Coast
Championship in the spring, she knew she


had found her home.
Students who want fo relive their high
school glory days or simpl- find a place to
play their favorite sports can |onm UF intra-

UFs Division: of Recreational Sport-
provides both types of students with op-

: Kate Quinlan, a graduate assistant

Student groups abound


By NOEL SANCHEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

Choosing UF was the easy part.
Choosing what toxdo next is tricky.
Ahuge, unfamiliar campus may seem
intimidating, but one of the best ways to
get to know your new school is to join a
student organization.
"Getting involved makes the huge
student population feel smaller," said UF
anthropology senior Jillian Yoerges, who
is the training director of Ideal, a dub
that serves s a consultation service for
organizations.
But with more than 700 student or-
ganizations at UF, the task of choosing
which one is right for you may seem a
little daunting.
Yoerges suggests attending the
Student Organization Fair on Sept. 12
and 13 on the Reitz Union Colonnade to
narrow down the options.
More than 200 dubs will setup tables
to present themselves to new students,


said UF political science senior Patricia
Nichols, the director of Ideal.
Organizations fall into a few different
categories, including religious, political,
cultural, academic, service and social.
The Black Student Union and the
Fellowship of Christian Athletes are two
of the largest groups, each with more
than 1,000 members.
"Getting involved makes the
huge student population feel
smaller."
Jillian Yoerges
UF anthropology senior

But if big groups aren't your thing,
specialized, recreational clubs tend to
be smaller. Virtually every major has at
least one organization dedicated to it.
"I feel like I have more of a purpose,"
Nichols said. "I have something more to
do than just go to my dorm and watch
TV."

cil-manager form of government. The main
leaders of the city include a mayor and six
commissioners, two representing the entire
city and four representing single districts.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, a Democrat,
represents the entire city. She is serving her
fourth and final term because of term limits.
Hanrahan, who was elected in 2004, tends to
lean on the liberal side with her votes.
Commissioner Rick Bryant, a Democrat, is
one of two city-representing commissioners-


at-large.
Bryant, who tends to vote conservatively,
approved the Domestic Partner Registry
that grants several rights to gay and lesbian
couples. Bryant, who was re-elected to a three
year term in 2005.
Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa was
elected in 2006 to the second commissioner-
at-large seat. Mastrodicasa, a Democrat who
often votes on the liberal side, said she wanted
to improve the city's busing system in her elec-
tion campaign.
She serves on the Public Safety Committee

Program at UE.
Commissioner Scherwin Henry was elected


in 2006 to represent District 1, which includes
most of East Gainesville and some homes near
University Avenue and west of Main Street.
During his 2006 campaign, Henry said
he wanted to develop East Gainesville
and supported the controversial Wal-Mart
Supercenter.
A Democrat, he tends to vote liberally,
but was one of'two dis-
Gainesville City senting votes against
Commission the Domestic Partner
Registry that began in
July.
Commissioner Ed Braddy was re-elected to
represent District 2 in 2005. District 2 contains
much of Northwest Gainesville.


Braddy, a Republican, tends to vote conser-
vatively. He was the second dissenting vote
for the Domestic Partner Registry.
Commissioner Jack Donovan was elected
in 2005 to represent District 3, which contains
many student-dominated apartments and
parts of the UF campus.
Donovan, a Democrat, tends to vote liber-
ally.
Commissioner Craig Lowe was first elected
in 2003. He represents District 4, which in-
dudes parts of the UF campus.
A Democrat who is openly gay, Lowe tends

LEG EN DS, from Page 3


"They said the clanging of the old radia-

The rumor: If your roommate commits
suicide and you walk into the morbid scene,
UF gives you A's for the semester.
This legend is usually paired with a ru-

it's said UF settles by paying your tuition.
The truth: At the mention of this legend,
Van Ness burst into laugher.
"I think you need to go to the president
with that one," he said.
Van Ness said certain provisions are
made for students who experience traumatic
events, but there are no hard-and-fast rules.
Mary Fukuyama, a psychologist at UF's

It's rumored that a Tom Petty song was inspired by a girl who jumped from Beaty Towers.


provide assistance to troubled students.
She said she's never heard of a financial
payout, but if a student has a medical issue
and needs to withdraw from classes, UF
could refund tuition money for that semes-
ter. UF's faculty retains grade power in all
cases, Fukuyama said.
tO p y s" U "flcr, girl"
The rumor: om Petty's song "American
Girl" was inspired by a female student who
jumped from Beaty Towers.
Tom Petty sings, "She stood alone on
her balcony. Yeah, she could hear the cars
roll by, out on 441 like waves crashin' on
a beach. And for. one desperate moment
there, he crept back in her memory."
The truth: Van Ness said there have been
many suicides in UF's history, and at least
one was caused by a jump from one of the
Beaty Towers.
He said he thinks the Beaty suicide
happened in the late 60's or early 70's,
when Tom Petty was still performing in
Gainesville.
UF does not keep a file on suicides, he
said, so he doesn't know for sure.

The rumor: Any time. an SAE Fraternity
member takes a girl's virginity, the lion is re-
painted the color of her panties.
The truth: According to SAE president Sam
Warfield, it is a fraternity secret.
"The painting of the SAE lion is based
upon events that are worth painting," he said,
"and the colors signify the symbolic nature of
that event."
But in response to the deflowering-celebra-
tion legend, Warfield spoke slowly.
After a pause, he said, "Myths always have
some truth behind them."


CaVe oaf armpos
The rumor: Somewhere on campus, there's
a cave: a should-be-somewhere-in-the-jungle-
but-it's-somewhere-near-The-Swamp gaping
hole in the earth.
It's also said the bacteria that inhabit it put
the last students who explored it in the hospi-
tal for six months.
The truth: There are several caves in
Gainesville, Van Ness said, most notably
Devil's Millhopper, but none on campus.
Campus is gutted with sinkholes, he said.
The Green Pond at the Reitz Union is one, and
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is built on another.
"In 1930, when they were looking for a
place to put the stadium, they said, 'Hey, that's
a nice bowl," Van Ness said. "That's why all
the lower seats are at ground level."
Van Ness said a freshwater spring is under
the east stands of The Swamp. It was chan-
neled into a nearby creek on campus.
It's still flowing today, he added.

-rf 8o0 e 8 i ie

The rumor: During a science experiment
gone awry, UF researchers invented the pests.
The truth: Love bugs came to Florida from
Cuba, Van Ness said.
"We used to joke that it was a Cuban inva-
sion," Van Ness said, laughing.
He said the insects have been in Florida
since the late '60s, but they've been around for
thousands of years.


The rumor: Every time a virgin graduates
from UF, a brick falls from Century Tower.
The truth: "I have nothing to say about
that," Van Ness said. "Of course ... no bricks
have ever fallen."

After leaving the nest, loss of the comforts of home start to become obvious.
Dirty laundry might accumulate. The bathroom doesn't get cleaned weekly. And
8 a.m., 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. go by without well-balanced meals waiting on the table.
Thus the task of hunting down your own nourishment begins.
Cooking is time-consuming, and groceries often end up rotting in the fridge. But
eating out is expensive, and driving around to find a new eating locale is exhaust-
ing.
The troubles are enough to make any college student give up on eating altogeth-
er. But before you start wasting away, consider some of the unique and convenient
restaurants Gainesville has to offer.

About two miles north of UF,
this small barbecue locale offers
large portions of quality meals at
reasonable prices. The meats are
less sticky than most barbecue
pits, giving customers the option
to add whatever amount of bar-
becue sauces they prefer.
"It is a lot of food. It filled me
up for a good price," said Stephen
Santana, an SFCC student.
Adam's is open for breakfast,
lunch and dinner.

stepping into a small commu-

greet customers upon arrival,
inviting visitors to sit where

ing. After growing tired of look-

for a healthful meal, the Joneses
decided to start their own res-
taurant. Seven days a week the
restaurant serves breakfast items,
such as breakfast burritos and
omelets, as well as a wide range

TRACY LOOPE I AVENUE WRITER
Many new students wonder about the little things in
Gainesville they need to survive the college life. Below is
some advice from students about things that'll keep you go-
ing strong all f6ur years, or longer if need be.

Where's the best place to get a haircut?
"Campus Cuts. They're quick, and you can go be-
tween classes. And they're cheap, $7.95, 10
bucks after tip."
- Patrick Clayton, UF mechanical engineering junior
Campus Cuts Hair Cutting Salon is located at
1714 W University Ave., across the street from
Murphree Hall.

What's the best food to order after a night out?
"Pizza! Five Star is open all night."
Denisa Mohammed. UF freshman
The closest Five Star Pizza to campus is located at 210 SW
Second Ave. and is open 24 hours a day.

What's the best way to cure a hangover?
"First off, two Advil and then a fountain Coke, not from a
can or vending machine, a fountain. And then when you
can finally look at food again, a cheeseburger is very
helpful."
Katie Winkler, UF criminology senior

"There's always the commonly accepted .idea that you can
cure a hangover with another beer. But if you want to
take the less alcoholic approach, then just take some
vitamin supplements and drink water."
Gilor Friedman, UF finance senior
These words of wisdom provide solid advice for those
mornings when last night just doesn't treat you right.

. Things to know before you get it on in college


The story told on the campus tour when
SI was visiting UE a few years ago went like
this: Every time a virgin graduates, a brick
on Century Tower falls. The punch line here,
Sof course, is that a brick has never fallen.
It's lame, I know, and as I can tell you
first hand, completely untrue.
To better acclimate you to UF and more
pertinently, the sex scene, here are some
things I wish I had known:
S Coming to college a virgin is not a bad
thing. I did, and while I am probably in the
minority, look where I am now.
But don't be in a hurry to give away the
SV-card to an unworthy mate. Virgin status
really won't be, or at least shouldn't be,
judged. We were all there at some point.
.There are tons of sexy things yoi can do
that don't involve penetration. You know
Mom and Dad won't walk in on you, so
take your time exploring each other.
Abo\v all know that se\ iL an individ-
ual choice. That'- hat Lo great about it
with 5i'i.i.li i-plus individuals at UF. Olne of
them -- bound to be \ .our sexual .oul mate.
lust make suje \'our ihrrt time ,in t on hght-
colored heets I havi. a tnend ilhi. cani tell


you all about that one.
Sex is a lifestyle choice, with your
health being the No. 1 priority. I will never
be able to say this enough use a condom.
You all think you know this, but three te-
quila shots later, will you actually be able to
remember it?
Having condoms in '" .
your wallet is not just .-
a guy's responsibil-
ity. Keep two in your :. f
purses at all times,
ladies. You never know when you or one of
your friends may need one.
Condoms are available for free all over
campus, from the infirmary to the inside of
dorm recreation rooms.
The Student Health Care Center offers
STD testing, birth control and counseling.
Planned Parenthood, 914 NW 13th St., pro-
vides an array of family planning services.
At one point or another, you will go
home with a person you meet at a bar or
club. Don't get mad at yourself, and try to
not to let it be that creep who already hit on
all our friend-
UF used to have a slogan, "Nobody likes


a sloppy gator." While I'm positive proof
that is not always the case, it is somewhat
true when it comes to sex. Being too drunk
raises your chances of having embarrassing
pictures posted on Eacebook and think-
ing the aforementioned& creep is Matthew
McConaughey.
It also makes you
S susceptible to being
taken advantage
of. Sorry to have to
tell you, but not all
Gators are nice ones. Some are predatory
sharks dressed in orange and blue.
A note to freshmen ladies:. This time
of year there are gaggles of guys who lit-
erally devote themselves to getting with
freshmen girls. I think it's some sort of rite
of passage. Just be aware of that when the
adorable senior of B.S. fraternity shows in-
terest in you, and by interest, I mean buying
you the aforementioned tequila shots.
Trading sex for alcohol is really not cool,
let alone worth the trip to get a herpes test.
Plus, there are plenty of cool older girls
who will gladly sneak you a drink in the
bathroom. We've been you, we've gone


home with B.S.
frat guys, we've
regretted it, we
understand the
temptation. PAIGE USYK
College re-
ally is a time of exploration. Some of you
will couple up. Some of you will engage in
tons of meaningless sex. You're all guaran-
teed to leave here knowing more sexually
than when you arrived.
It's no coincidence that 30-something's
stories about sex usually involve the caveat,
"Well, except for that one time in college."
There are people who engage in anal sex,
one-night stands, threesomes and all soits
of other taboo sexual practices.
I'm not advocating doing anything
you're not comfortable with, but I am sug-
gesting you use this time to experiment and
discover what you really like.
Ladies, learn what it takes for you to
have an orgasm. Guys, discover that penis-
in-vagina sex is not the only erotic thing
you can do in a bedroom. Chances are you
will never again live around so many sexy
people your. own age. Embrace that.

Cheap ways to make the move to dorm


As a freshman. your lhing
space is usually limited
If your multitude of pos-essilons
makes )our crib a bttle too cozy.
tfclow a few of these tips to make
% our space habitable.
First, be sure to measure every
section oft \our domain Measure
closet space, the bed size, the mn-
der-the-bed space, etc., so w-hen
you go shopping \ ou'U knoivw what
\Tri work for your room.
Next. follow the fliers and com-
mercials. Many places such as Bed
Bath & Beyond have huge back-to-
school sales where you can save a
bundle on suppbes.
Shop around. If you can find
a plastic under-the-bed container
at Lowe's for $15, see what Target
charges. You can usually find simi-
lar items at several locations with


varying prices.
If you're not ready to start
charging dorm furniture to your
emergency credit card, look for
garage or moving sales. A lot of
students are graduating or chang-
ing their addresses. and you can
usually bargain tor belongings.
And as ahla\-s. check local
thrift stores. Many generous'stu-
dents donate old furnishings, and
the price tags are reasonable.
Don't be afraid of plastic. Sure,
i\ e'd all love an oak dresser in our
rooms, but who can afford it? Plus,
where will it fit? Brands such as
Stenhte make all types of storage
containers in different sizes and
colors. Some even have Wheels so
you can easily slide them under
your bed. If you don't like how it
looks, cover it up.


One trick I've learned: A little
fabric can go a long way. You can
buy a few yards of stylish fabric at
a local craft store and then simply
hang it over unappealing furniture.
I covered a dull night stand with
some funky Elvis-printed fabric.
You can also use this technique
for computer or lounge chairs.
The seat of my computer chair
was ragged, so I covered it with a
retro-print bandanna. Simply flip
the chair, pull the fabric tight so it's
smooth across the seat and staple.
No one looks underneath the chair,
so you don't.have to worry about
perfect stapling.
Another inexpensive and easy
way of reviving old furniture is
spray paint.
My futon's frame is silver, so I
wanted some of my gear to match

- with a $1 can of silver spray
paint, I transformed picture frames
and a night stand into comple-
menting items.
For closet storage, look for
hanging shelves. Target and Wal-
Mart sell fabric shelves that attach
with Velcro around your closet
hanging rod. Most come with three
or four compartments, which are
spacious enough to fit up to five
pairs of jeans in each cubby. You'll
pay about $15, but you'll save
room for more furniture. You can
also find shoe organizers or door
shoe racks which save you a lot
of space. '
SBuy door hooks and racks.
Whether it's for towels, coats or
purses, any kind of door hooks or
hanging racks offer organization
and space. If it's allowed, you can


S



MEGAN HERON
screw hooks into your closet to
hold belts or purses.
When it comes to preparing
food, most dorms won't allow any
heating appliances in the bedroom.
You can usually have a fridge, but
no toaster ovens.
Eating complete meals can be
difficult without a full kitchen, so
be conscious of what you're eating
in a TV dinner, and consider pur-
chasing a George Foreman Grill
or sandwich maker for more meal
options.
And for those times you just
need a snack, load up on popcorn:
It's cheap, tasty and simple to
make.

Stores and
consignment
shops in the
Gainesville
area, it's a
mystery \vh1
some students
insist on
shopping at
Gthe same old
Abercrombie
& Fitch,
American Eagle Outfitters and Hollister
stores.
"Try new things at new stores,"
said Ego Fashions employee Dana
Hershkowitz. "It's nice to support local
business."
Gainesville has plenty of retail stores to


choose from, but it's just a matter of find-
ing the right one for you.
Urban Thread, 1117 W University
Ave, is known for having an assortment
of discounted I. Crew and Anthropologie
clothing for men and women. This sum-
mer, the store has been stocking up on
dresses with pockets and trying sell what
is left of the wedged heel trend.
Kate Gates, 22, an employee at Urban
Thread, said that students generally dress
preppy, with no originality.
Gates' fellow employee, Natalie
Degenhardt, interjected, "Do something
different!"
She has a point.
Despite UF's diversity, original outfits
aren't necessarily easy to come by.
"Figure out your own look," Gates
said. "Go for what's good for you."
She also advised 20-somethings not to
dress too young. Wearing clothes that are
tight in all the wrong places is not flatter-
ing, and "'ou just look stupid," she said.
There's also the future to think about
when shopping in college
Clothes students buy now may be
what the', sport for sears to come, so
wise choices are essential
Glitzy, glamorous attire, such as rhine-
stone-studded tops, should be set aside
for more appropriate times than Biology
class at 10 a.m.
'You don't want to get all dressed
up for class," said Franci Blanco, 23, an
employee at Ego Fashions. "You should


-'4---

be comfortable in what you choose to
wear.
She said she personally favors Lacoste
polos, American Apparel T-shirts and
juicy Couture sweatpants for class.
As for evening wear, she suggested
less is not always more.
Lynne Mercier, a bartender at Rue Bar,
said after two years of working there, she
can easily spot the first-time club-goers.
"The best is girls in short jean skirts
and their dressy heels," she said, "It's just
obvious that they don't know what to
wear downtown."
Not everyone has good fashion sense,
but it's all about learning what style suits
\ou. she said.
As for advice for freshmen, "It
wouldn't be as obvious if they weren't
constantly, weanng their 'Class of 2007'
T-shirts around campus," Mercier joked.

Julie wanted to fit in at college, so she did English:






S/"-. L

.. ..'...





Today Julie is seen every so often on the subway,
where she rambles on in incoherent soliloquies,
asking for spare change in iambic pentameter,
Julie smells repugnant.

TTB-u '5


And soon Julie was doing English every weekend.
It was the best of times. Juiie was swept away
from reality.

LEARN FROM JULIE,
Just because half.com is cheaper doesn't mean
you need to buy twice as mLch English. Use your
savings for good on half.coin and try
a video game instead.

I ~iff.oO.


English on half.com was cheaper, so Julie did twice
as much. She went crazy-nesting with cuckoos and
developing a fear of wrathful grapes.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION, 45


Which Southeastern Conference schools have the coaching edge?


HOOVER, Ala.
e Southeastern Conference is witness-
ing the re-spawning of Satan (er, Saban),
Rich Brooks is back again and
Colonel Reb is still crying.
Welcome to SEC Media Days, one of the
few times all year that all 12 conference head
coaches are at the same place at the same
time.
With football season just around the comer,
here's a look at the best and worst SEC coaches
heading into 2007, in order from worst to first.

q 3Ed Orgeron (Ole Miss): If you haven't
.L-heard the "Coach 0" song, you may
want to YouTube it now. And if you think
Colonel Reb is the only one crying, talk to
Mississippi's season ticket holders. While
Orgeron has put together a couple of decent
recruiting classes, he has yet to transfer that
talent into results on the field. Firing Orgeron's,
predecessor, David Cutcliffe, is starting to look
like a really poor choice for Ole Miss.

1 o Sylvester Croom (Mississippi State): I
L am reminded of Charles Barkley's fa-
mous words about his home state of Alabama.
"If it wasn't for Arkansas and Mississippi,"
Barkley said, "we'd be last in everything." So
it's no surprise that Croom from Mississippi
State joins in-state rival Orgeron at the bottom
of the SEC coaching rung (and the standings).
Since becoming the conference's first black
head coach in 2004, Croom has done nothing
but lose, compiling a 9-25 overall record, in-
cluding a 4-20 mark in conference play.

1 fBobby Johnson (Vanderbilt): It almost
LVisn't fair to put Johnson so far down in
the rankings, because he doesn't exactly have
the same opportunity for success as the other
coaches in the conference. In fact, I think the


coach has done a pretty good job considering
Vandy doesn't have an athletic department
(literally), and the school probably has lecture
classes that are more highly attended than its
football games. But you can't argue with re-
sults, and Johnson's Commodores have yet to
make a bowl game during his tenure.

OfRich Brooks (Kentucky): Rich Brooks'
Vlopening statement at last year's SEC
Media Days was something to the effect
of "I bet you guys didn't expect to see me
here." We didn't. But despite the efforts of
FireRichBrooks.com, he stuck around long
enough to have his most successful season
with Kentucky. Brooks' Wildcats shocked
the country with their high-powered offense
and a Music City Bowl victory, and Kentucky
made sure Brooks would make a few more
Media Days appearances, locking him up to a
four-year contract extension worth roughly $1
million per year.

0O Houston Nutt (Arkansas): It's highly
WJunusual for a coach to be in the hot seat
directly following his most successful season,
but that's exactly what's happening. Nutt
wooed several top recruits from Springdale
(Ark.) High by hiring the school's coach, Gus
Malzahn, as offensive coordinator last season.
One tumultuous year later, Malzahn along
with highly touted quarterback Mitch Mustain
and wide receiver Damian Williams -has de-
cided to jump ship despite a 10-win season in
2006. If the Razorbacks struggle, Nutt may be
forced to follow them out the door.

0 Les Miles (LSU): It isn't easy claiming a
I guy who is 22-4 the past two seasons is
only the seventh best coach in his own confer-
ence, but Ijust can't rank him any higher. Miles
has yet to prove he isn't living off Nick Saban's


recruiting classes, and
you can even make a
case that LSU has un-
derachieved the past
two years. I won't go
that far, because you
Bryan Jones could easily blame
Bryan Out Loud Hurricane Katrina
bjones@alligator.org in 2005 and a brutal
schedule in 2006 for a
couple of those losses,
but there is something about Miles that just
doesn't seem quite right, and that is enough
to put him just a slight notch behind the SEC's
elite coaches.

O&Mark Richt (Georgia): If you can say
V anything about Richt, it's that he is con-
sistent. The Bulldogs are always competing for
the SEC title, but they are never quite good
enough to play for a national title and they can
never beat the Gators. Even with a horrendous
situation at quarterback last season, Richt's
Bulldogs still managed to win nine games.

0 aPhilip Fulmer (Tennessee): A few years
V ago, you could make a case that Fulmer
deserved to be No. 1. After all, the guy won a
national title. But with so many great coaches
in the SEC, it's a "what-have-you-done-for-
me-lately league," and all Fulmer has done
lately is underachieve. The national title is
enough to keep him in front of Richt, but the
fact that he had to publicly apologize for the
Volunteers' 2005 season keeps him from mov-
ing up any further.

A Nick Saban (Alabama): Few people
V-rseem to like Saban, but that doesn't
stop him from recruiting talented players and
winning college football games. Saban won
a national title in 2003 and helped turn LSU


into a powerhouse before leaving for the NFL.
As long as Saban can repeat that success at
Alabama, Crimson Tide fans won't care if he
is kind of a jerk.

f Tommy Tuberville (Auburn): Tubrville
V hodidn't technically win a national title in
2004, but anytime an SEC team goes 13-0, they
are national champs in my book. Tuberville
doesn't have the name value of some of the
other coaches in the SEC, but the fact that he
has defeated archrival Alabama five straight
times and has made Auburn the premiere
football school in the state of Alabamaripeaks
volumes. So does the fact that the Tigers con-
sistently find themselves near the top of the
SEC West standings these days.

^Steve Spurrier (South Carolina): Lou
V-Holtz left the Gamecocks in absolute
shambles, but somehow Spurrier has man-
aged to make a decent team out of South
Carolina. The Gamecocks are only going to
get better under Spurrier's tutelage, which is
bad news for the rest of the conference. South
Carolina could make a huge splash as early
as this season. Couple the tremendous job he
has done at South Carolina with his previous
success at UF, and Spurrier deserves the No.
2 ranking.

fl Urban Meyer (UF): It took two years
V Lfor Meyer to make Bowling Green
extremely successful, two years to take Utah
to a BCS bowl victory and two years to win a
national title at UF. That's impressive. Besides,
when a guy is coming off a national title, it is
hard to argue that he doesn't deserve to be
ranked No. 1. As long as Meyer continues to
win the recruiting wars, his teams are going
to be tough to beat. Something tells me last
year's national title won't be his last.

Crowd energizes players

SWAMP, from page 55


The energy of the crowd has long been an annoyance to op-
ponerts, but a boon for the Gators.
Quarterback Tim Tebow, a lifelong Gators fan, cites the en-
ergy of the crowd as the best thing about suiting up to play for
UE
Tebow says he's energized by the crowd, and he calls it the
most incredible environment he's ever played in.
"The Swamp, you know, I've been going there
as long as I can remember," the sophomore said
with a smile. "Every time you go there, you know
it's going to be loud. It's going to be crazy. It's
Football the best environment in the country. I mean, I get
goose bumps just thinking about it."
The goose bumps were more like jitters when Tebow made
his debut as a Gator last season against Southern Miss.
Tebow entered the game late in the third quarter with UF at
the 1-yard line. Unfortunately for Tebow, his.first collegiate play
was a false start as he yelled the wrong cadence.
With the 2007 season opener against Western Kentucky just
weeks away, a new crop of freshmen will have to adjust to the
excitement and jitters that come with playing in front 90,000
screaming fans.
"I'm ready. All the freshmen, we talk about it everyday,"
freshman wide receiver Deonte Thompson said. "We can't wait.
It's crazy out there real loud. None of us have experienced
anything like that before."

50, NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2007


Players learn to manage time, diets


SFRESH MEN, from page 55

on his first day. Ever since then, Brantley
said he takes that same route to class so he
never gets lost.
Players also tend to have someone
monitoring their eating habits, so while the
''"Freshman 15" may have a negative conno-.
tation for the average student, for certain
football players, the coaches encourage it.
At 5-foot-9, 156-pound running back
Chris Rainey is practically force-feeding
himself to bulk up in time for fall.
Rainey said he is usually a carbohydrate
consumer and is a big fan of pasta, espe-
cially macaroni and cheese. He likes ham
sandwiches, too, but the coaches have in-
sisted he change his diet.
"They have all this healthy food,"
-Rainey said. "Vegetables. I don't eat veg-
etables. I eat corn, but not corn on the cob.
... Chicken. Steak. I don't eat steak. I don't
eat chicken that much. All this other stuff I


ain't never seen before."
The newcomers are learning more than
how to manage their diets,however. Now that
football camp has started, time management
becomes a huge issue for football players.
Safety Major Wright said he spends-
Sseven to eight hours a day
on football, and Brantley
Said he spends consider-
ably more time studying
his playbooks than his
textbooks.
And .on the rare occa-
aSi L sion that they have some
Rainey free time, the freshmen
are learning to enjoy their newfound
freedom in a responsible way, except their
night out just might be a little more high
profile.
"When we go out, you can tell we're
the football team," Mike Pouncey said.
"We just try to go out, have a good time
and stay out of trouble. It's easy to get into
trouble."


OUT LOUD, from page 55

text messages to your friends at FSU,
rubbing it in their pathetic, unaccom-
plished faces.
You missed Joakim Noah's per-
sonality, Reggie Nelson's crushing
hits and Jarvis Moss' legendary
blocked field goal.
You missed the victory lap return
of the '04s, Tebow's jump pass and
the celebratory riots on University
Avenue.
And you were so cose. What are
the odds?
But before you do anything crazy
like disowning your parents or trans-
ferring to USC, let's consider the
bright side.
UF's football team is once again
the favorite to win the SEC East, and
only LSU is more highly regarded
in the SEC heading into the season.
The Gators are ranked No. 3 iti the
Coaches' Poll to begin the season,
and the emergence of Tim Tebow
as starting quarterback and Urban
Meyer's installation of-a more wide-
open offense should lead to some
excitement.


Billy Donovan decided not to
leave for the Magic, and a swift re-
building process is under way for his
basketball team.
A strong recruiting class led by
Nick Calathes, Chandler Parsons
and Jai Lucas could earn the Gators
national recognition as early as next
year.
And the Gators are pretty strong
in some of the smaller sports as well.
I recommend checking out a
volleyball match. The Gators have
won.16 straight SEC titles and have
enough talent returning to compete
for a national title.
So cheer up and enjoy the mo-
ment, young Gators fans. And if you
.are still having trouble coping, think
of how much worse it could be.
You could have been at UF dur-
ing the Zook years of football, a time
when the basketball team simulta-
neously had a habit of first-round
NCAA Tournament exits.
How mad would you have been at
your parents then?
And if you are ever really down
in the dumps and desperately need
something to raise your spirits, just
consider this:
You could be going to Ohio State.

52, NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR S WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15,2007


Come prepared: Top 10 traditions every UF football fan must know


s a proud native Midwesterner, I'm
not the foremost expert on the his-
tory of UF football.
I only started following the Gators
whei I enrolled here three years ago.
But in three years of covering UF sports,
I have grown to embrace the traditions
that Gators fans cannot live without.
Without further ado,.here's a list of UE
football's top 10 traditions.

The Circle of Life
10 Urban Meyer instituted this prac-
0tice game when he took over three
years ago.
The team forms a circle with a pit in
the middle, where two players go head to
head trying to bring each other down in a
wrestling-type match.
Meyer pits players of similar body
builds against each other and, for obvious
reasons, keeps the quarterbacks out of the
action.
The Gator Head
SQThe statue of a gator head outside
1 the UF locker room is a symbol of
"true Gators," as former quarterback Chris
Leak reportedly once said.
Players like to touch it before games for
good luck, much like similar traditions at
Clemson and Notre Dame,
Meyer removed the gator head in his
first season because his players were not
living the right lifestyle.
He made them earn the right to touch
the gator head.
Gator Growl
08For those of you who don't know
0 a first down from a touchdown,
Gator Growl is an opportunity to get that


UF atmosphere in The Swamp without
having to sit through a game.
Gator Growl, billed as the nation's larg-
est student-run pep rally, takes place the
night before the homecoming game and
features celebrity performers to entertain
the crowd.
In the past, Jerry Seinfeld, Dane Cook,
Bill Cosby and Bob Hope have performed
at Gator Growl.
This year, Frank Caliendo of "MadTV"
fame takes the stage as the main act.
Gator Walk
7 Before taking their seats in the sta-
Sdium, football fans line up along
the north entrance to the stadium the
one that faces University Avenue and
watch the players and coaches get off the
buses and enter the stadium.
Recently, the Gator Walk Brick Project
allowed fans to buy personalized bricks on
the walk for $100 or $500 a piece, depend-
ing on the size.-
The Cocktail Party.
O The Gators play Georgia in a neu-
6tral-site game in Jacksonville every
year in what has become known as "The
World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party."
Organizers want to downplay the
drinking, so the universities have tried to
eliminate the moniker.
But it will never be forgotten.
The Gators have gone 15-2 in the game
since 1990, practically owning Georgia.
The Cheers
O 5 If you stayed awake during fresh-
V man orientation, then you probably
have a grasp of the main Gators cheers.
My favorite at football games is hear-
ing the student and alumni sections of the


7 stadium yelling "or-
ange" and "blue" to
each other, otherwise
.known as the "or-
ange-blue" chant.
Sitting in the press
Nick Zaccardi box, every time the
Nick-el Coverage alumni section makes
nzaccardi@alligator.org its "blue" chant, I can
feel the vibrations.
Other cheers in-
clude "Gator bait," when fans slowly raise
and then clap their hands vertically in the
form of an alligator chomping its food as
the "Jaws" theme plays when the oppos-
ing team takes'the field.
Gatorade
OhDr. Robert Cade of UF invented
V the popular sports drink in 1965 to
keep the football team hydrated.
Coach Ray Graves began serving the
drink to his team that year, and it fueled
-the Gators to success in the late 1960s.
The drink has become so popular that
it inspired a commercial with legendary
sports commentator Keith Jackson retell-
ing the story of Gatorade.
Gatorade told kids in the 1990s to "Be
Like Mike" in a Michael Jordan ad cam-
paign and is the beverage of choice to
shower coaches with after big wins.
Albert and Alberta
O In 1957, Albert the alligator made
V his debut at UF.
Contrary to today's mascot, Albert was
a real, live alligator at first.
Several live alligators and even a ro-
botic one took turns as the team's mas-
cot until the school introduced a costumed
version in 1970.


Alberta, Albert's female sidekick, was
introduced in 1986, and the two have been
smitten ever since.
We Are the Boys
S2 At the end of the third quarter, it's
=time to stand and sway together
arm-in-arm to "We Are the Boys from Old
Florida."
The UF band plays the tune as students,
alumni and fans alike sing in unison.
And if you don't know the words, don't
worry, they are listed on screens inside
The Swamp.
Mr. 2-Bits
01 George Edmondson, a retired
SJ-.insurance salesman from Tampa
who is in his mid-80s, is perhaps the most
famous person associated with UF football
who doesn't don a jersey or a headset.
Edmondson, better known to Gators
enthusiasts as Mr. 2-Bits, grabs the atten-
tion of everyone in The Swamp just before
the players take the field.
Wearing a tie with a whistle in hand,
Mr. 2-Bits directs the chant "Two bits, four
bits, six bits, a dollar. All for the Gators,
stand up and.holler!"
That gets The Swamp rocking as the
players hit the field.
The Two Bits tradition started in 1949
as a way of using an old slogan to drown
out the booing directed toward a pitiful
Gators squad.
Mr. 2-Bits briefly retired in 1998 but
returned the next season, though he has
scaled back.his cheering.
The legend speaks of retirement on the
horizon, but he still leads the Gator faith-
ful in the famous pregame cheer.

Freshman football players adjust to college life


Freshman quarterback Cameron Newton drops back to pass during the Orange and Blue Game on April
14.


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

Mike and Maurkice Pouncey
maybe minor celebrities on campus,
but in many ways they are just typi-
cal freshmen.
After twenty minutes of search-
ing for their Plants, Plagues and
People class on their first day of
school, the twin offensive linemen
were forced to' call the Office of
Student Life for an escort, who met
them at Chick-fil-A and walked
them to class.
"I was embarrassed," Mike
Pouncey said. "I didn't want to go
into the class at first. The first day of
school, and I'm alreadylate."
Freshman defensive back Joe
Haden was a little intimidated by
the hundreds of students in some of
his courses, so he tended to wait un-
til his mandatory tutoring session to
speak up if he was confused about
a subject.
"When I went to a tutor, that's
when I really learned the stuff,"
Haden said. "I learned more with
the tutor than I learned in class.
It's perfect, because in the class you
might not understand something
and you don't want to be the only
one asking the question."
As for UF's course catalogue, the
freshmen are starting to learn it's


Swamp provides home edge


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Staff Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

On several Saturday afternoons this fall,
UF's campus will be peppered with RVs
full of tailgating families, inebriated alumni
throwing around the old pigskin and scalp-
ers walking down University Avenue hoping
to make a 200 percent profit on tickets.
Game day in Gainesville is akin to a reli-
gious holiday, and Ben Hill Griffin Stadium
is the Gators fan's cathedral.
It's been the site of several of the biggest
games in the Southeastern Conference in
recent years, and if you listen to the people
at EA Sports developers of the popular
NCAA Football series it's the toughest
place to play in the country.
But what is it that makes the "Swamp," as
Steve Spurrier dubbed it so many years ago,
such a difficult place to play?
There are many reasons, ranging from
the heat index to the sight of 90,000 crazed
Gators fans chanting "Gator bait!"


But whatever the reason, the fact remains
that Florida Field isn't a place UF's oppo-
nents look forward to visiting.
"The Swamp, you know, I've been
going there as long as I can remem-
ber. Every time you go there, you
know it's going to be loud. It's going
to be crazy. It's the best environ-
ment in the country. I mean, 1 get
goose bumps just thinking about it."
Tim Tebow
UF quarterback

"Probably Florida," said Tennessee line-
backer Jerod Mayo in reference to the tough-
est place to play in, the SEC. "It's so humid.
The fans can actually touch you that's
how close they are. It gets frustrating some-
times when they hassle you."

Newcomers just missed out


freshmen, it's all your parents'
fault.
No, I'm not talking about
all the emotional and psychological
anguish that has led you to a life of
teenage rebellion and emo music.
Nor am I referring to the physical
beatings you took from the middle
school bully when Mom and Dad
insisted, "Everyone wears suspend-
ers."
This doesn't even have anything
to do with genetic dispositions.
Though, in all fairness, they probably
do owe you an apology for that third
eyebrow.
The truth is, your parents' procras-
tination has led you to Gainesville a
little late.
Last year was the greatest year

college sports,
and you
missed it.
Winning
national cham-
pionships in
both football
and men's bas-
ketball in the


same year is a
feat that very possibly may never be
duplicated by any school ever again.
I blame it on your parents' pro-
crastination. If they'd gotten their
acts together sooner and you had
been born just one measly year ear-
lier, imagine all the memories you
would have had.' The stories you'd
tell your kids. The phone calls and

nothing like their typical high school
English and math courses.
"There's. alot of weird classes,"
Mike Pouncey said. "I'm ii a veg-
etable class now. We just learn about
vegetables and plant stuff. I don't
really take care of mine: I planted
a potato plant, but I haven't really
checked on it since football camp
started."
With football season right around
the comer, these players are going
to become even--more noticeable
around campus.
For some, their quasi-celebrity
status has already started to kick in.
"It's a little different making
friends," Haden said. "A lot of peo-
ple already know who you are be-
fore you know them. So they come
up to you and just start talking."
For the freshmen who decided
to enroll early in the spring, their
first day of school happened to
fall on the day of the BCS National
-Championship Game.
Because the football staff couldn't
be in Gainesville, they made sure the
Gators' newest additions were taken
care of by setting up tour guides.
The Office of Student Life pro-
vided escorts on the first few days
of the semester to show some of the
players to their classes.
