SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff Writersshavell@alligator.orgThe Reitz Union has been a staple for students since it was built in 1967. It has seen many additions and renovations through its time, but now the old Reitz Union will be completely redone. The $75 million project is being funded partially by you, the students. The rest of the money is coming from bonds, loans and investments. It took months to secure the funds. In fact, UF needed approval from the state government to use some of the money. Since getting approval, proponents for the Make it Reitz campaign hit the ground running, and construction began this summer. The latest project updates have been closing the colonnade and the south terrace. People who want to enter the union must go through the UF Bookstore, Subway on the north side or at the circle drive, according to the Make it Reitz Twitter account. The leaders of the campaign believe the renovation and expansion will add more space for student needs. The expansion will to accommodate the 980 student organizations that use the student union as a port. It will have a new Center for Leadership and Service, in addition to adding a multilevel structure for Student Government and multicultural facilities. The expansion will also include adding a GatorWell Health Promotion Services in the union and more space for the Department of Student Activities and Involvement, according to the website. The Orange & Brew, which is located outside the Reitz Union near the amphitheater, will also be redesigned. until Fall 2015. Therefore, construction will be going on for a while. However, throughout the process the Reitz Union will stay open. Renovation and expansion projects are inherently disruptive, but the design team will strive to minimize the impact on daily activities. Sections of the Reitz Union will remain open and programs, services and facilities will continue to be available, Vice President for Student Affairs Dave Kratzer wrote on the Make it Reitz website. Reitz Union and Student Activities and Involvement staff members are dedicated to making every effort to continue service at the highest levels throughout the project. The head designer of the project had previously said that the contractor plans to work during the weekends and late afternoons to try to minimize distraction for students.

My own story goes like this: I was sitting off to the side, watching my friends recover from the various shots of alcohol theyd previously downed during our bout Some of my friends, on the other hand, hadnt. When I started toward the bathroom door, I felt a tug. It was one of my guy friends, and he had grabbed ahold of me. I chuckled nervously and attempted to break his grip, but he held tighter, pulling me toward him. He had consumed quite a few drinks, much more than I. His eyes were cloudy, far away. He didnt seem to notice my discomfort. This friend, whom I had known since ninth grade and es, wasnt my friend all of a sudden. Everything else is blurry. I remember yanking myself forward, hard, out of his grip. I remember him curling his hand around his drink again, putting his back to me. I remember everyone in the room had noticed nothing as I sprinted to sit beside my best friend, shocked and thankful all at once for the crowd of people in the room. I was lucky I was with a group that night. I had thought that guy was a friend, someone I could trust. I dont think he knew what he was doing, nor do I think he has any recollection of the incident. All I know is people can change in an instant, and you have to be ready for it. As women, we are taught we are not as strong as most men as tough as most men and that we dont have guy.

Without parental supervision, a new student might feel inclined to do anything and everything, if only as an experiment. Other students might feel frightened and lonely without the support and comfort of their loved ones. In either case, I hope to convince you that college is, indeed, a time that can be very exciting and adventuresome. But as with anything, there are many more wrong ways of doing it than right ways. make it. deep breath and trust me on this one. Things will fall into place a lot more easily than you think. If youre lonely, get to know your neighbors and roommates. Visit various club meetings and get to know people with similar interests. Talk to strangers in class.

And if it ends up being a problem, maybe take a boyfriend/girlfriend sabbatical for a little while. Next Ill address those who are already raring for adventure and want to experiment and experience paths, guns blazing. research the physical effects and dangers of whatever it is that youre wanting to do, be it sex, alcohol or otherwise. Carelessness has been the root of too many of my own failures here in college. Like I said before, be elegant about it. Theres a way to have fun, theyll probably treat you well and with more respect for it. Now Ill offer some general advice for any new student. I mentioned something earlier about autonomy and personhood. Indeed, when you leave this place you should be a much different person than you were when you came in. You should not only have a title, but you should be a person worthy of the title. By the time this in-between stage is over, you should be ready to take on the mantle of adulthood. aside, an adult is responsible over his or her obligations. Adults ure. An adult is proactive.

Welcome, Class of 2017, to the University of Florida, to Gainesville and to the start of your college experience.

Jen Day Shaw (@UFDeanJen) is the associate vice president and dean of students for the Division of Student Affairs. You matter and UF caresGuest columnThere are a few basics to successful dorm living. Follow this advice, and youll survive with some money to spare. Dont, and youll be broke. Simple, right? Rule No. 1 is to keep your key on you at all times. Keep your key on a lanyard around your neck and fall asleep wearing it if you have to! (Actually, that might be dangerous, so dont.) If you get locked out, youll be issued a temporary replacement key. Youre allowed a number of free lockouts for the whole year, and they run out quickly! After that, theyll start charging a bunch of money for each successive lock out. Rule No. 2 is to familiarize yourself with your area. Learn the lay of the land area can offer you. Every dorm area comes equipped with washing machines and dryers, but did you know that the dorms also have a maintenance service called iService? The next thing that you have to realize is your RA is both an employee and a normal person. So, Rule No. 3 is dont make his or her life a living hell by doing dumb things. Plastic plates will melt on the stove or in the oven. This should be obvious. The corollary to this is to learn the rules and abide by them. Remember, the RA is also an excellent resource for all of your questions. Dont be afraid to talk to him or her. Rule No. 4 is to have fun with it. Dorm life is a novel experience. Its something that can only happen while youre in college. But this leads to our Rule No. 5: Make sure you leave after one year. After the novelty has worn off, and after youve grown more accustomed to standing on your own two feet, theres not much use worth if you move off campus.

ALEXA VOLLAND and KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff Writersavolland@alligator.org kvarn@alligator.orgHungry? Youre in the right place. On campus, students have multiple eating options. Cafeterias: To start with, there are two dining halls: Gator Corner Dining Center, located at the intersection of Gale Lemerand Drive and Stadium Road, and Broward Dining Center, which is by its eponymous dorm. Pick-me-ups: No time to sit and eat? UF offers a number of grab-and-go stations. For the essentials like chips, pre-made sandwiches, fruit and yogurt visit a P.O.D. Market, located Hub and at the Rawlings bus stop. You can also grab a coffee or pastry from one of the Hub. If your dorm room needs some restocking, other convenience stores on campus include Beaty market, Graham Oasis, Little Hall Express, Chomp & Go at Pugh and Hough Halls. Fast food: There are plenty of fast-food restaurants around campus to choose from. The Papa Johns, Pollo Tropical, Panda Express, Home Zone and Starbucks. For healthier alStarbucks, a P.O.D. Market and an Einstein Bros. Bagels. Vegan friendly: For the veggie-lovers, there can be picked up at convenience stores on campus. With a menu full of soups and salads, the Camellia Court Caf in the Harn Museum of Art is also a good option for vegan and vegetarian students. But lets be real. At some point, youre going to get sick of on-campus food. Luckily, when this time comes, Gainesville has a spread of delicious restaurants. Here are a few all-time favorites: The Top. Try the corn nuggets or black bean cakes as a starter. For the main course, the restaurant has a huge collection of burgers with patty options for meat and non-meat eaters, as well as sandwiches and pasta. The restaurant also has a full bar and photo booth, making it a great night-spot. Located at 30 N. Main Street. The Gelato Co. You would think this resmade daily). But their sandwiches are delicious. If you order a drink with your meal, you get a free small gelato. Another plus? The restaurant is open until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Located at 11 SE First Ave. Satchels Pizza. This is the place you take pretty much anyone whos visiting you from enough (get the deep dish!), but the restaurant itself has character thats just so Gainesville: Theres a table inside of an old-school van, and Lightnin Salvage junk museum and an ATM, which youll almost certainly end up using because the restaurant is cash only. Located at 1800 NE 23rd Ave. La Tienda. Three words: Authentic Mexican food. The menu includes enchiladas, chimichangas and other Mexican dishes, most inthe restaurant has ethnic sodas to accompany your authentic meal. Located at 2204 SW 13th Street.

Its an interesting phenomenon, said Goldman, the executive director of the Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student and Community Center. When they come to college, they want to connect on their own terms with their faith. Theyre actually choosing to on their own terms with their peers, their friends. Its encouraging to see those choices being made. Paul Gulig, the faculty advisor lic Gators, suggested students who tion that coordinates with their denomination. get connected with the appropriate congregation, parish... mosque, he said. For students who are exploring or seeking out stronger belief, he suggested remaining open-minded and positive. Its very common for a lot of students when they go away to college to exercise their independence, he said. Do some soul searching. Get connected on the positive side, and see if theres something there and if its something you want to continue working on. alumna who recently graduated with degrees in journalism and martween involvement in campus ministries and church was key for her. I would... recommend not letting campus ministries be your only outlet for your faith, she said. She said getting plugged into a local church helped her connect with a variety of people from different backgrounds and with different levels of life experience. Campus provided a forum for connecting with peers. Church was a being-built-andgrowing experience, she said.

That is, of course, after following a few rules to make everyones lives a little more enjoyable on gamedays. So you won the lottery congratulations. Now you get to wait in line every Tuesday through Thursday (the week before each game) at Gate 13 while its sweltering hot outside. Whomever you pick up tickets with is whom youll be sitting next to. But your friends dont have to be physically present to claim their tickets. If you get a group of friends together, you can send some ambassadors from the group with everyones IDs. But if you didnt win the lottery, youre not out of luck. The university-approved way to get tickets is to try and buy unclaimed ones Thursday night on www.gatorzone.com. But if you dont want to wait, you can buy tickets off other students. The best places to look are Craigslist and Facebook try one of the ticket exchange groups. Remember the face value of each ticket is $15, and the closer to the game it is, the cheaper the tickets will likely get. Now for getting into the game. Have your student ID and ticket with you. Dont try smuggling in alcohol, drinks or snacks while getting into the stadium, because your bags will be checked. Bring cash if youre hungry for stadium food, or just stuff yourself before you enter. A good idea is to swing by the stagame so you dont get turned away. but a general rule of thumb is to not be a jerk. This includes not standing on the bleachers, not being a sloppy mess and not sneaking in friends youd be surprised how claustrophobic the place can get. Booing the other team is optional, and youll hear other students do it, but its usually better to take the high road and stay classy which means yelling orange or blue at the top of your lungs. Dont forget UF traditions. Any Gator worth his salt will do his best to tailgate before the game, or at least spend the day outside, especially come October. Get some friends together and try a picnic if you cant get a fullon tailgate going, and enjoy the atmosphere. For home games, come a little early so you can get the whole experience, including the Two Bits chant and AC/DCs Thunderstruck. And dont dare leaving until the third quarter, where the whole stadium links arms and sings We are The Boys.Guide to Gator Gameday: Dont be a jerk, follow traditionsGamedays are the best days, but the heat can be brutal if youre not prepared.

ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Staff Writeravolland@alligator.orgLooking past the frat tanks and game day dresses, much of UFs Greek life is rooted in scholarship, community service and leadership. UF has four Greek councils: the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, the Multicultural Greek Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council. Of the 25 chapters in the Interfraternity Council, 24 have houses that can mostly be found on Fraternity Row. The rush process for the IFC begins Sept. 8 and ends Sept. 12. The female version of the IFC is the Panhellenic Council, which has 16 chapters. All women who decide to rush will be brought to each house, and then they will narrow down their preferences. Rush starts Friday and ends Aug. 25. The cost for joining can vary depending on the chapter. The average cost for the IFC is about $2,800, and for the Panhellenic Council its about $3,200. The Multicultural Greek Council is made up of 13 fraternities and sororities rooted in Hispanic and Asian cultures. None have houses. The process for joining differs based on the group, but you could be asked to do an interview or attend group activities. Dues average around $270. The National Pan-Hellenic Council is comprised of nine historically black fraternities and sororities, seven of which have chapters at UF.

HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgIts important to know whos who in Gainesvilles government and how to get involved. At the top of the political food chain is Mayor Ed Braddy. Though he is a new mayor just elected in April, Braddy served as District 2 city commissioner from 2002-2008. Braddy is no stranger to the city of Gainesville or its government. He has lived in Gainesville since 1991 and earned a degree in history from UF. Aiding the mayor in his duties are the city commissioners. They pass the citys budget, decide on ordinances and resolutions, and host City Commission meetings that are open to the public. The current city commissioners are Thomas Hawkins (at-large), Lauren Poe (at-large), Yvonne Hinson-Rawls (District 1), Todd Chase (District 2), Susan Bottcher (District 3) and Randy Wells (District 4). Regular city commission meetings Thursday of each month. Alachua County has a separate set of commissioners as well, including Mike Byerly (District 1), Lee Pinkoson (District 2), Robert Hutchinson (District 3), Susan Baird (District 4) and Charles Chestnut IV (District 5). County commission meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesday each month in the County Administration Building. Contact information for the city and county commissioners can be found at www.cityofgainesville. org and www.alachuacounty.us. Stay in the know and attend public meetings. If you have something to bring to the city or countys attention, there are allotted times for citizen comment where you can speak your mind. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 17FITTING IN ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Staff Writeravolland@alligator.orgBeing accepted into The Gator Nation left me with a bittersweet feeling. I was excited to pack up and head to the Swamp, but I worried if I had made the right decision. How could I commit to bleeding orange and blue when my closet was full of green and gold? As a transfer student from the University of South Florida, coming to a new school in the middle of my college career seemed daunting. How do you feel like a Gator when youre used to rooting for the opposing team? Get into gameday Even if you never went to a sporting event at your old school, being in a college stadium can make you feel a part of something. You dont need to paint your entire body, but going to at least one game will get you one step closer to being a Gator. Plus, youll be amazed at what adding a little orange and blue to your wardrobe can do to your spirit. Take a tour You probably knew where every building on campus was at your old school. But even if all your classes are in the same room at UF it doesnt hurt knowing where things are. Get acquainted with the campus You dont want to have to ask someone where a building is, and not even have the excuse of being a freshman. Buddy up a professor Professors in your college have had the opportunity to take note of your peers for the past two years. Being the new guy in town, its important to set up a time to meet with your professors and introduce yourself. Feeling like a Gator can be as simple as building a friendly relationship with a faculty member. You cant feel a part of UF if not one professor knows your name. Plus, when the time comes to ask for reference letters youll be glad you made the effort. Join a club Meeting new people can be hard as a transfer student by junior year many students have established their core group of friends on campus. Maybe its one of the most obvious suggestions, but joining a club or an intramural sport can be a great way to feel like youre a part of university life and make friends. There is practically a club for every interest; it doesnt hurt to try one or two out. If all else fails, at least learn the words to We Are the Boys.Transfers can feel like Gators, tooBraddy Know your city governmentPainting the 34th Street Wall is a student tradition, and it should be on everyones bucket list before they graduate.

Like, heres one: Sororities are strictly regulated due to brothel laws. As the legend goes, sorority houses at some campuses are limited because outdated laws women from living together. But the area around the campus is littered with sorority houses. And a quick search of the City of Gainesville Code of Ordinances shows no law prohibiting any gathering of women. Another: A psychic predicted murders on a college campus on national TV, and it came true. Nope. First off, who believes in psychics anyway? But on a serious note, in 1990, Danny Rolling one from Santa Fe. The murders became known as the Gainesville Ripper killings and served as the inspiration for the movie Scream.

26, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 BROOKE PERRYAvenue WriterBeing a new student on a campus of nearly 50,000, chances are you want to do so many new things you get overwhelmed just thinking about them all. But slow down there, newbies. There are also several things you will want to avoid at all costs. 1. Looking like a freshman This bullet can be dodged in just a few easy steps. First, take off that lanyard. We have all made the mistake of wearing our new Preview handout proudly around our necks. When you remove the jingling dorm key, fob and whatever else is hanging on that clunky thing, you also lower your chances of standing out like the freshman you are. Secondly, try to avoid wearing too much orange and blue. School spirit is great, but if youre blending into the walls in The Swamp, it might be lastly, avoid getting lost. Never be afraid to ask for directions, but check out where your classes are located the day before school starts, and practice getting to them from the place you will be right before then. 2. Lines and most Turlington handouts If there is ever a line for an elevator or it need to get to is a single digit number, take the stairs. You will probably end up getting there faster and burning calories at the same time. Its a win-win. If you are not aware of this yet, Turlington Plaza is a common place for people about and will end up throwing away. Some of these people are very persistent and will not let you just walk away. You can try to divert the situation by walking around it, avoiding eye contact by noticing you just happened to get a new text (wink, wink) or by making your your backpack like a baby be creative. But also know that sometimes you can get some pretty cool handouts in this area as well as at the Reitz, from T-shirt giveaways to free pizza. 3. Sleep deprivation Although the college lifestyle is rumored to be a sleep-free zone full of all-nighters, it is important to get rest. Sleeping well helps your memory and keeps your immune system healthy. A Healthy Gators student survey completed in Spring 2013 showed that 43 percent of students woke up for the four to seven days before the survey was taken feeling rested. This advice is not for everyone, but moving into a new environment can alter many habits. Dont let this be one of them. Research shows that teens and young adults need nine to 10 hours of sleep, said GatorWell Health Promotion Specialist Jane Emmeree. Emmeree explained that people should be able to tell how theyre sleeping by how they wake up. If having trouble sleeping, evaluate the environment you are in by temperature, noise and light. Choices youve made throughout the day can also affect you here, like drinking too much caffeine. But live and learn. Protect your sleep, Emmeree said, It relationships, emotional health, and physical well-being. 4. Rain Unfortunately, this one is unavoidable. Always carry an umbrella, even if it looks like it will be a perfect day. Gainesville has a way of pouring down rain without warning, and it can either be a short shower or a few hours of Hurricane Albert. Rain boots and rain jackets are wise purchases, too. 5. Failing If you are struggling in classes, always go to your professor for help. Sometimes you might be in a class with 300 other people, so knowing your teacher is important. teacher and turn yourself from a number to a face, First Year Florida instructor Matt Pendleton said. If you ever need help in a class, its a lot easier when you have that personal connection. Attendance is also important, even if your class is online. If there is an option to attend an online class in person, do it. It is also a good idea to completely read your syllabus, and dates in a planner. Clear your mind about what high school was, he said. College is your full-time job. You are employed by the university, and your job is to pass these classes.UF freshmen, heres how not to be such obvious freshmen baby gatorsBrooke Perry / AlligatorIn a posed photo, UF public health student Emily Thompson (left) and animal sciences student Alexa Penalta talk about their lanyards and Gator gear on campus.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 27 A GOOD DIET COULD MAKE FOR A HEALTHIER MIND. BRANDON LEE GAGNEAvenue WriterFor freshmen, eating can be a challenge. Youve been thrust into a new environment, and youre feeling the birth pangs of your newfound adulthood. Nostalgic for your family and the nutrition they gave you, you must now cut own source of nutrition. How can you do this without starving or going broke? Follow these simple rules. Rule number one: Dont, dont, dont buy a meal plan. The meal plan is an absolute scam. The food looks great during Preview, but its not that great once youve got a meal plan, especially not at such a steep price. The portions are small, badly cooked and dont taste very good. Im not blaming the staff of the Gator Dining locations. They do the best they can with the resources theyre given. They work really hard, but until there are some major changes with the dining program, its not worth the money. Besides, why would you deprive yourself of the experience of learning how to stand on your own two feet by cooking your own meals? Its better to learn to cook for yourself now as a freshman, while conceding as a junior, when youll Rule number two is to develop a plan. This rule requires a couple mine what your body requires in order to thrive. Harvards Nutrition Source website is an excellent resource. The major parts of any meal should be vegetables and protein. Grains arent seen as the staff of life anymore. A diet of ramen noodles might keep you alive for now, but you might be making plenty of hospital visits later in life. Its much cheaper to just eat right now, and it doesnt have to cost too much. The second step of this rule is to come up with a list of potential meals for yourself for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Maybe breakfast is eggs, spinach and some orange juice. Maybe one nights meal consists of chicken, mixed vegetables and rice. You dont have to come up with a ton of different, complex meals. Keep it simple, silly. One nights chicken might be in a spicy stir fry, while the next nights chicken could have a more Latin If you need ideas for meals, just look them up on the Internet. There are plenty of sites dedicated to colThe third step of this rule is to and get it. If youre reading this while your parents are still in town, recruit their help. You might need a fridge, a pan, a pot and a spatula. Thats all I needed for a while. Rule number three is to buy in bulk. This step, the actual buying, is the trickiest because you probably dont have a car. Fortunately, Gainesvilles bus service is superb. Familiarize yourself with where the stores are and which routes travel there. Be aware that routes are different on weekends. Download the TransLoc Transit Visualization app to track the buses in real time. I highly recommend a Sams Club card. Its a little bit of a walk from the bus stop to the store, but if you go frequently enough the membership will more than pay itself off. If you think that you dont have time to make one trip a week to the grocery store, then make time. I promise you that you can make time for this trip. Make sure you bring a big backpack with you and maybe even a couple of totes. The fourth rule is to buy frozen goods. I cant emphasize enough how awesome buying frozen is. There has been some debate as to whether certain foods are more nutritious when purchased frozen or less nutritious. In either case, Im not sure you can go too wrong buying frozen. Its way cheaper than buying fresh, and canned is probably poisonous thanks to Bisphenol A (BPA). with it. what youre doing. Start out by following some recipes as closely as you can, or ask a friend about their techniques. Just keep at it, and before you know it youre going to want to start experimenting. As always, exercise safety. Never leave the stove unattended! The last rule is on spoilage. There are three ways of knowing if a food is not safe for eating, and theyre all free, provided by evoluis to use the nose, because the nose knows. That fantastic device can detect if the chemicals in a food have become infested with organisms or compounds that are bad for you. If it smells bad, dont secondguess your nose It knows! The second way of knowing if your food is spoiled is to use your eyes. Sometimes your seasoning will keep the food smelling nice, but if you just look at it, then youll know that theres something growing on it. If your vision is impaired, remember what seasonings you used and the smell of the food before it was stored. Any amount of spoilage will yield a different smell, but sometimes its too subtle for most to detect. The last method to use is the taste test. If it tastes bad, spit it out and throw it away. It wont nourish you. It will poison you. A good diet coupled with exercise and enough sleep should make for a healthier body and mind. Its an investment. Not only will you feel better, look better, and do better in class, but youll save on those hospital visits I mentioned earlier. It might seem like a lot now, but youll have it all down in no time, champ.Rules for college eating: Make a plan, buy frozen food, have fun

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 29 MELISSA KAHANAvenue Writermkahan@alligator.orgHaving a UF student ID regardless of how hideous the picture on it from Preview money-saving, time-saving and all around your ticket to making life in Gainesville just a tad easier. 1. Drink specials You will undoubtedly rack up a huge tab over the span of your time at UF let alone in one night at a relatively decent bar, club or restaurant. There are certain magical days that boast discounts for drinks to college students. This will probably be advertised in the form of Student Night, College Night or Young People Rock Night. OK, that drinks at a discount whether its BOGO or half off just for being a student. 2. Free Regional Transit System bus rides. Gainesville can easily seem like it is totally dominated by the university, but eventually, you will want to venture outside the brick walls. Those big blue RTS buses are free when you show your Gator 1 Card. And parking around Gainesville and on campus, in general, is so limited that it is infuriating. 3. Free Lake Wauburg access Among the parks, bike trails and swimming pools near UF, theres the UF-owned gem that is Lake Wauburg. Present your Gator 1 Card, and you and your car of people assuming you didnt clown-car-pack everyone in can use the facilities. You can lay out on one of the chairs, dip your toes in the slightly murky waters, swan dive off the dock, rent a kayak, explore every inch of the lake, paddleboard and so much more. 4. Discounted movie tickets OK, this is a general student thing, but the discounted student tickets at the local movie theaters are actually pretty decent. Take your Gator 1 Card to get on the RTS bus dont forget the free part and a discounted student ticket will provide you with not a bad way to spend an evening away from campus. 5. Cheap game day tickets If you didnt know already, gamedays at UF are no joke. Football is an obviterm gameday arises, but having a Gator 1 Card will also give you access to basketball games, gymnastics meets and other sports events at UF. Not only does being a student at UF allow you to enter the football ticket lottery if you didnt do it this year, it is well worth it next year but if you win, it guarantees a seat at every home game, provided you pick up the tickets. Even if you didnt enter or win the lottery, unclaimed tickets are $15 a pop and are only for UF students. Those other sports? Free for UF students. The Gators are 6. Gator Nights Gator Nights may not seem like the most happening way to spend a Friday night, but when you dont know where to go and are corn and game booths at the Reitz Union arent so bad. This especially holds true on those nights with free improv from Theatre Strike Force, pancakes and crafts. Its a great way to meet new people and have some free fun. Just dont forget that Gator 1 Card.The perks of being a student insider tips tThis column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Im a girl and I like to go out a lot. I just want to hang out with my girls and sometimes a few guys will try to talk to us. Im okay with that, but how do I get the creepy annoying ones off of my back? Dear Friend,Tell them you used to be a man. If they believe you, there is an enormous chance they will just walk away. If they dont believe you, they will be really impressed at how far you would go to make a guy leave you alone and understand they are not welcome. Not everyone has the balls to say they used to have a dick. Dear Mediocre Advice, I feel like Im really putting myself out there. I want to hook-up, but he doesnt seem to get the message. Why are some guys such pussies? A guy is not a pussy if he does you. Hes not interested or just not in terested as much as you are. Maybe hes into one of your friends. You may want to hook-up, but do not assume that he knows that. Dont encourage guys to make a move on anyone that smiles back at them. Its confusing to guys and pisses off the girls that were want to make a move, do it, but dont go running around saying some guy is a wimp because he doesnt want to f--you back. Dear Mediocre Advice, How do I get into UF? Dear Friend, Study your a-off and quit dicking around. If you have not chosen a major yet, pick something non-competitive. It is completely true that you can do anything you set your mind to. You can become an orca whale trainer at Sea World, an Arnold Schwarzenegger im personator or the guy on the corner of University and 13th half of the time. Reach for the stars.

30, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 MELISSA KAHANAvenue WriterNight life in Gainesville is certainly not for the faint of liver. This large college town with an active Greek community and a multitude of eclectic clubs comes with its own set of night life procedures, from which place has what special/event/rager to the people you show up with. Heres our advice for doing Gainesvegas the right way: 1. Pregame like no other Whether youre underage or a seasoned veteran of the night life, it never hurts to pregame. Think of how much money youll be saving by buying a handle of vodka than buying overpriced diluted-cranberry-andvodka drinks at the club. 2. Get yourself an established D.D. Gainesville cops are no joke. Dont think you wont get caught drunk driving. Crying wont save you here. 3. Know where to go and when Various nights at various places boast a wide array of specials, themed nights and certain crowds. In Midtown, Balls and Salty Dog are tiny, cramped and all around pretty gross bars, but they are great for a cheap drink and some fratty sing-alongs. Gator City, which is attached to Envy, has 10-cent wells on Friday nights, along with other deals throughout the week, such as Karaoke night on Thursday night and ladies night Wednesday night. Ladies night will be your best friend, no matter if you are a guy or girl. 101 Cantina has Margarita Mondays enough said and other specials each night, but dont even try to get in with a fake I.D. they require two forms half of the time for baby-faced freshmen. This new wave of students just missed out on late night gorge spot Munchies 420, which was right above Fat Daddys known for its frozen alcoholic drinks and athlete-spotting. Speaking of which, Grog is a whole other story. Id put money down that it spot, but Ryan Lochte loves it. (Note: He is known as more of an eyesore to the Gainesville community now than anything. Thanks, WWRLD?) And of course, visit The Swamp for great outdoor seating/drinking space, but thats the extent. The Midnight, The Bull, Tall Pauls and most smaller bars and restaurants downtown are more on the hipster side and will be sure to provide an interesting drink experience. But the clubs downtown are the total opposite, as 101 Downtown, famous for Techno Tuesdays, Sharab, Simons Nightclub, known for techno Simons Saturdays, and the rest of the dimly lit, mellow. Spannk is best known for Neon Liger, the EDM-playing, eclectic Le Neon Liger dance parties usually on Saturday nights. Like country music? :08 has the whole nine yards on Thursday nights: line dancing, cowboy boots and free drinks for ladies before midnight. Where you go depends on the vibe you want, but the right place with the right music is crucial. A little online research never hurt to see whats happening which night. 4. Follow Facebook event pages and promoters There are quite a few nightlife promoters, including Uber Promotions and The Dynasty Group, and Facebook pages that let you know if any major events are happening and what night each club has each day, such as a ladies night. You can often times get on a list which will allow you to get into a club earlier, at a cheaper price and through a special line with fewer people. Better yet, make personal friends with a promoter. They see you, they get you in, problem solved.Your four-step guide to navigating Gainesvilles night life out on the town

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 35THE ADAM BOMBAlthough the Emmy-nominated Scandal doesnt return to ABC unvoid of twists and turns. In the summer of Manziel, controversy reached all the way to Archer and University with an alleged murder and dog barker. College is a safe haven, but now with constant media attention, campuses more closely resemble a pool of piranhas. Yet, one sanctuary still exists the football With each turnstile turn, each ticket scan, each touchdown catch, arrest reports become pass. When the whistle blows on Aug. 31, it will be more about the orange and blue instead of the green and white. Florida faces Toledo in 17 days without its middle linebacker Antonio Morrison. What it will have is 15 starters returning from an 11-win season. More importantly, it boasts an experienced quarterback, an athletic defensive line and the deepest secondary in the country. Morrisons arrest on July 21 shows he shouldve been more careful (what college student would ever stay around Williston Road at 3 a.m.?). I found out about the dogbarking incident late that next day in New York City. By the time I woke up Tuesday morning, Morrison became a punch line ironic for a linebacker who packs a serious punch. National and local media irresponsibly billed him as a problem child: A player Will Muschamp should kick to the curb. A player the third-year coach should send on a one-way ticket to Bolingbrook, Ill. A player wasting away the golden ticket. Damage done. Its clear for now that Morrison will be than for playing on it. It will be at least three weeks before he plays. Snap judgments are a part of college football (hence this prediction column). Take Johnny Manziel. A dark cloud seems to follow the Heisman Trophy winner like black smoke suffocating smokers in PSAs or The Monster that tortured characters in Lost. The media and school are gigging Manziel to death. College, a time of development, has become a job for him (allegedly). Every step, every decision is scrutinized. Its miserable. His own school newspaper, The Battalion, ran a column that told him to leave in response to an angry late-night tweet from Manziel ripping College Station. Where safe place if he cant feel safe in his own backyard? These players are developing on and off What were you doing at 20? Football players make mistakes. Some change programs, while all of them change lives. One bad tweet here and a misconceived idea there turn into a viral feeding frenzy at the click of a button. Maybe this is all nave, but its time we concentrate on the football. While Charlie Strongs yellow Gatorade bath stings and stains an otherwise historic season, I remember Matt Elam punching ing forced fumble. I remember Jeff Driskel making the Commodores defense sing the blues in Nashville and Morrison knocking out EJ Manuel as a stunned Doak Campbell crowd fell silent. Expect more of the same from a Gators team dependent on controlling the football and the line of scrimmage. Florida should contend with Georgia and South Carolina for a spot to Atlanta. Yet its too early too tell. Players like Manziel could come out of nowhere (Matt Jones, anybody?). If this confusing offseason has taught us anything, its that Im not judging yet and neither should you. Itll be a different kind of noise echoing in The Swamp in 17 days. As August turns to September, itll be time to turn the page on a summer we would all like to forget.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff WriterDanny Wuerffel popularized it. Rex Grossman accomplished it most often in program history. Tim Tebow put a stamp on his historic career by doing it. Since then, a Florida quarterback passing for 300 yards in a single game has occurred stunningly few times. Since the beginning of the year as starting quarterback the Gators have thrown for 300 yards in a game just once: Brantleys 16-for-28 performance for 329 yards in a 5432 victory against Furman on Nov. 19, 2011. To put that in perspective, Grossman threw for 300 yards or more 17 times during his career. Tebow, also no stranger to eclipsing the benchmark, threw for a program-record 482 yards Junior quarterback Jeff Driskel has never thrown for 300 yards in a game. His careerbest came last season against Tennessee when he completed 14 of 20 passes for 219 yards. Second-year offensive coordinator Brent Pease still believes Driskel could become a consistent 300-yard passer while at UF. He has the ability to do it, Pease said. He has the ability to do it in this system. He has the ability to do it off his skills. If Driskel is to develop into became best known for during the Steve Spurrier and Urban provement will be required. Including his performance against Tennessee, Driskel passed for more than 200 yards just twice last season the lone other occurrence coming a week later against Kentucky. In fact, Driskel failed to pass for 100 yards four times last season UF won each game en in the Southeastern Conference and 118th out of 124 teams nationally by averaging 146.3 passing yards per game. Its more throwing the ball over the top, just stretching the to do, Pease said of what must improve. Thats route running, accuracy with the ball, protection at times, and theres a lot that becomes involved in it. Florida returning to its heytaking deep shots is unlikely to return. As Pease said, Our game is going to be wear them down up front. But for the Gators to develop a more balanced offense than the one that often lagged last season, creating an aerial attack will be critical. Were gonna have to hit more big plays, Driskel said at UFs media day. We cant run the ball 50 times a game like we did last year at points. Were still gonna run the ball effectively but we do have to make more plays throwing the ball. The biggest key to an improved passing game will be Floridas ability to create explosive plays through the air. The Gators had only 28 pass plays of 20 yards or longer last season. Twelve went 30 yards or more. Without Jordan Reed, whose athleticism made him Driskels favorite target, the Gators will rely on a committee of tight ends and receivers to replace his production. Tight end Clay Burton said has seen at this point in camp. quarterbacks have more reads and the guys are more open because of the spacing, concepts of the routes and things like that, Burton said.

Admission is free.NEW STUDENT EDITIONFlorida quarterback Jeff Driskel (6) attempts a pass over the Tenneesee defense during a 37-20 victory against Tennessee on Sept. 15 at Neyland Stadium. PHILIBUSTERFor anyone who is a ravenous consumer of sports and entertainment, the summer months can be trying times. Baseball is in full swing, but thats about it. The NBA and NHL playoffs end sometime in June, and minus a couple of mini camps that dont really matter, the NFL is on a full hiatus. Television can be much the same. Ive been so starved for something interesting that I have spent hours watching Big Brother 15. The summer is pop culture purgatory until August comes and awakens the soul. For me, I am now most interested in two things: How the Gators perform because Breaking Bad, what I believe to be the best show on television. So as each gets going, Ill take a look at three storylines entering UFs season told through quotes from characters in Breaking Bad. You clearly dont know who youre talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think of me? No! I am the one who knocks! Walter White Floridas passing game was out of 120 teams nationally. That must improve this season. Jeff Driskel and his receiving corps must some threat to opposing defenses that will look to crowd the box and slow Matt Jones. If Demarcus Robinson, Quinton Dunbar or some of Floridas other explosive skill players can answer the call, the Gators offense could go from being the ones who open the door to being the ones that knocked just as Walter did when he became the kingpin of his empire. This kicks like a mule with its balls wrapped in duct tape! Tuco Salamanca After losing Matt Elam and Sharrif Floyd to the NFL draft, maintain the identity they had on defense. In 2012, Floridas secondary was full of ball-hawking playmakers. The defensive line had the depth to continually make life hell for opposing quarterbacks. Entering this season, the depth and talent remain, but guys like Cody Riggs, Antonio Morrison and Leon Orr need to unleash the beasts within themselves for the UF defense to be dominant once again. You are a wealthy man now. One must learn to be rich. To be poor, anyone can manage. Gus Fring The way Walter transformed from a broke high school chemistry teacher to a conglomerate is the situation the Gators currently face. After two subpar seasons, Florida did not carry the target it did during the heyday of Urban Meyer and Steve Spurrier. That worked radar for much of the season they opened the year No. 23 in the polls and eventually won 11 games to earn a trip to the Sugar Bowl. The stakes are raised this year. Fans were offered a taste of the success they so desperately crave last season, and opponents were put on high alert that Florida is back. For as much progress as was made in Year Two under Will Muschamp, coming up short of Atlanta for a third consecutive year would leave a sour taste in the mouths of everyone. Expectations are high. How will the Gators respond? I believe well enough to make their Game since 2009.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 37AS STEIN ON TVThis was the summer of discontent for Gators fans. Between Aaron Hernandez being arrested for an alleged murder, Riley Cooper saying pretty terrible things and Antonio Morrison getting arrested twice, Florida has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. And things didnt improve once camp started. At Southeastern Conference Media Days in July, coach Will Muschamp said the team was almost entirely healthy going into camp. But by UF media day Aug. 1, quarterback Jeff Driskel had his appendix removed, running back Matt Jones contracted a serious viral infection, starting offensive guard Jon Halapio suffered a partially torn pectoral muscle and lineman Max Garcia injured his back. The injury bug didnt stop there. Within a week of camp starting, redshirt senior Andre Debose and freshman Matt Rolin suffered torn ACLs. So let the season begin. We can sit and discuss injuries, depth charts and projections all we want, but all the preseason hype in the world doesnt compare to one Saturday of football. Get out your calendars and circle some dates. season. Not quite the full slate of games featured on Saturdays, but it will be a good night. North Carolina vs. South Carolina kicks off at 6 p.m. All it will take is one Jadeveon Clowney Ole Miss at Vanderbilt starts right after, which will be a good match up of two potential up-and-coming SEC teams. And heres the big one for most of you reading this column Saturday, Aug. 31. Toledo at Florida, the Swamp in more than nine months. game isnt exactly a marquee matchup. third in its division in the Mid-American Conference last season. But even if the opening game isnt against a top out-of-conference opponent like Oklahoma or Notre Dame, it is still plenty exciting. Its the start of a new season something to make everyone excited. The streets will be terrible. The buzz that makes Gainesville a great place to spend a weekend will be back. This season starts with as much optimism as any since Ive been in Gainesville. I arrived in Year One A.T. thats After Tebow. The hype surrounding John Brantley revolutionizing Floridas passing attack died quickly, as did any hopes for a national championsip. Year Two A.T. wasnt much better, so the fan base was pretty pessimistic going into 2012. But an 11-2 season and a Sugar Bowl appearance has people talking about Florida, and the Gators come into the season ranked No. 10 in the Coaches Poll (although that does not matter if you ask Muschamp). But like Flavor Flav once said, dont believe the hype. The summer is nearly over. Its time to play ball. Contact Adam Lichtenstein at alichtenstein@ alligator.org.Summer of trouble gives way to season full of expectations Adam Lichtensteintwitter: @alichtenstein24 SLATTERY WAS A TWO-TIME ALL-AMERICA SELECTION.MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer never wanted to leave the comforts of Ohio. I was the type that didnt want to go too far from home, Slaterry said. I was a homebody. The Cincinnati native said she planned on committing to the University of Dayton. Then Gators assistant Alan Kirkup noticed her. Slattery, 18, played in a tournament at Walt Disney World in Orlando before the end of her senior year of high school. Kirkup attended to watch an opposing player, Slattery said. He saw me get hit or knocked down, and I lost the ball, and I guess I just started smiling and laughing, she said. He remembered seeing me do that and loved that I smiled after I got hit. I think he saw my potential, and l think that is what he loved most about me. When the time came to meet coach Becky Burleigh and visit the UF campus, Slattery said the choice was obvious. I knew right when I came and talked to Becky, saw the school and saw [the team] play on top of everything, I was like, This is where Ive got to be. I cant pass this opportunity up, she said. Slattery made a smooth transition to Gainesville despite having to leave her family behind. The girls here are so awesome, and they make you feel so at home that it helps keep my mind off things, she said. Slattery joins a roster of 27 players, coming in with numerous accolades from high school and club soccer. She was a back-to-back NSCAA High School All-America selection at her high school career with 66 goals and 36 assists and led the Cincinnati United Premier Crew Jr. Gold 94/95 club team in the 2011-2012 season with 13 goals. Even with her offensive experience, Slattery said she sees her role on the team as a defensive centermid. You have to have a lot of composure and you have to stay strong to your role, Slattery said. Youre going to get the ball to people who will make something happen in the attacking third on things, not losing your role and trying to do everything. I was the type that didnt want to go too far from home.Liz Slattery

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 39FIRE JOE MORGANWide receivers coach Joker Phillips is a Photoshop wizard, and offensive coordinator Brent Pease proved quick-witted when it came to Jeff Driskels boredom. Even coach Will Muschamp became involved, jokingly bemoaning our generations beloved hashtag and insisting we call it a number sign. So why wouldnt Twitter maintain its stronghold on Florida football during the season? As Muschamps 105 characters aim to build on a stellar 11-2 record in 2012, heres what I see trending for UF this year. Naturally, each is preceded by a hash uh, number sign. #Violators Perhaps the opposition should get a better grip on the football this year. Turnover margin was a key component in Floridas resurgence last season. I expect plenty of ball hawking by the Gators in 2013. #OOMF The sound football players make when they hit each other. Wait, that means something else? What did one of my followers do? #Driskel&Ebert Unless he kept his football talent in his appendix, I believe Driskel will earn #twothumbsup in 2013. Added experience, increased familiarity with Peases offensive scheme and the lack of a quarterback competition will help him step into the leadership role the Gators #MurphysLaw Florida should assign a Secret Service detail to protect Driskel. Like his rogue ex-appendix, danger pops up when you least expect it. With all due respect to Tyler Murphy, Driskel is the Gators lone viable starting quarterback. If Driskel gets hurt, Muschamp cant simply shut off his Xbox like the rest of us. #BieberFever When is Justin Bieber not trending on Twitter? Its inevitable. #NeedForReed Who can replace the departed Jordan Reed? The blocking will be OK, but if none emerge as half the passcatcher Reed was last year, that would spell trouble even for Peyton Manning because #PleaseCatchSomething Returning wide receivers not named Quinton Dunbar combined for eight catches and 44 yards last season. One of those guys, Andre Debose, is done for the season with a torn ACL. Talented freshman Demarcus Robinson is the wild card. Can he step in and produce from Day 1? I think so. #NoFlyZone Floridas secondary is one of the best in the country even after losing Matt Elam and Josh Evans. I can merely say names to prove my point. Loucheiz Purifoy. Marcus Roberson. Jaylen Watkins. Vernon Hargreaves III. #1000K Matt Jones will become the ninth Gator to rush for 1,000 yards in a season. Recovering from his recent illness may take some time, but I expect Jones to hit the ground running. Once he settles back in, he will be a game-changer. #ItsAlmostAsGreatUF The Gators will win fewer games this season than last, but they will be a better team. Excluding the loss to Georgia, seemingly every break went Floridas way in 2012. The Gators will make it through the nations toughest schedule with eight or nine wins and a Jan. 1 bowl berth. #HotAsHell Two noon kickoffs in the Florida heat to begin the season? Must be nice for those insane ESPN executives to make decisions like that from the comfort of air-conditioned conference rooms. #CoachBoom Should we expect anything different than Muschamps trademark passion on the sidelines? Look forward to another season of Muschamp emotions ripe for GIFs and memes. Never change, Your Boomness, never change. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 41FOOTBALL ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff WriterFlorida had several established upperclassmen to lead the defense in 2012. Matt Elam was already one of the top safeties in the nation, and Josh Evans had cemented himself at the free safety position. But this season, Florida is looking to another defender to step up to Purifoy. ing more from last year. Florida remains deep at the cornerback position.

42, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013WHAT TO EXPECT LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff WriterIt may be August and football is the dominant sport here in Gainesville but college basketball season is approaching sooner than you think. Thanks to new NCAA legislation, teams can now hold 30 practices during a 42-day span before the start of the regular season in mid-November. With the Gators training camp set to begin about two weeks earlier than it would in the past, expect practices to possibly start in late September. Since Floridas Elite Eight exit on March 31, the Gators offseason has been clouded with uncertainty. Here are six questions about UF yet to be answered as it approaches the regular season in about two and a half months: 1. Will Chris Walker and Eli Carter be cleared to play? The Gators are still awaiting the NCAA Clearinghouses ruling on Walker, who is dealing with academic eligibility issues. Walker, the No. 6 recruit in Rivals.coms rankings for the Class of 2013, would put the Gators over the top. His perimeter skills and ball handling still need work, but the Bonifay native would add plenty of athleticism and shot-blocking to the Gators frontcourt if he is ruled eligible. Donovan is also awaiting word on Carters eligibility for the 2013-14 season, but the Rutgers transfer guards chances to play this season looks brighter than Walkers hopes. Following the mess Mike Rice left at Rutgers after allegedly verbally and physically abusing his players, Carter is hoping to receive clearance from Rutgers and a waiver from the NCAA that would allow him to play for the Gators next year. Two weeks ago, Rutgers transfer guard Mike Poole was granted immediate NCAA eligibility to play at Iona, so Carters situation looks promising. Carter, who played two seasons at Rutgers and averaged 14.3 points in 56 games, would solidify the Gators young backcourt especially with starting point guard Scottie Wilbekins status in limbo. 2. Will Wilbekin rejoin the team? Donovan suspended Wilviolating team rules. At the beginning of the 2012-13 season, Wilbekin was also suspended for breaking a team rule. Donovan said last month that he would meet with Wilbekin once the fall semester starts and go from there. The Florida coach could eventually reinstate Wilbekin like he did with Erik Murphy back in car break-in. Not having Wilbekin would be a blow to UFs defense, which was ranked third in the KenPom.com. er for the Gators? potential to be a lottery pick if he lives up to his billing. Donovan should love Hills style of play this year as he thrives as a distributor in the open court. Senior center Patric Young (and maybe Walker) could see plenty of lob passes down their way from Hill. 4. Will Young step up to the plate? In an up-and-down junior season, Young averaged 10.1 points but only 6.3 rebounds per contest. The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Young has recorded consecutive games with double-digit rebounds only twice in his college career both times during his sophomore season. With Kenny Boynton, Mike Rosario and Murphy 50.5 percent of last years offense gone, Young might need to be Floridas offensive anchor. An injured right ankle could have factored into Youngs inconsistent production last season, but he needs to prove more reliNBA Draft. 5. Will the Gators win a close game this year? Florida was 0-6 in games decided by single digits last season.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff Writersshavell@alligator.orgThe Reitz Union has been a staple for students since it was built in 1967. It has seen many additions and renovations through its time, but now the old Reitz Union will be completely redone. The $75 million project is being funded partially by you, the students. The rest of the money is coming from bonds, loans and investments. It took months to secure the funds. In fact, UF needed approval from the state government to use some of the money. Since getting approval, proponents for the Make it Reitz campaign hit the ground running, and construction began this summer. The latest project updates have been closing the colonnade and the south terrace. People who want to enter the union must go through the UF Bookstore, Subway on the north side or at the circle drive, according to the Make it Reitz Twitter account. The leaders of the campaign believe the renovation and expansion will add more space for student needs. The expansion will to accommodate the 980 student organizations that use the student union as a port. It will have a new Center for Leadership and Service, in addition to adding a multilevel structure for Student Government and multicultural facilities. The expansion will also include adding a GatorWell Health Promotion Services in the union and more space for the Department of Student Activities and Involvement, according to the website. The Orange & Brew, which is located outside the Reitz Union near the amphitheater, will also be redesigned. until Fall 2015. Therefore, construction will be going on for a while. However, throughout the process the Reitz Union will stay open. Renovation and expansion projects are inherently disruptive, but the design team will strive to minimize the impact on daily activities. Sections of the Reitz Union will remain open and programs, services and facilities will continue to be available, Vice President for Student Affairs Dave Kratzer wrote on the Make it Reitz website. Reitz Union and Student Activities and Involvement staff members are dedicated to making every effort to continue service at the highest levels throughout the project. The head designer of the project had previously said that the contractor plans to work during the weekends and late afternoons to try to minimize distraction for students.

When I started toward the bathroom door, I felt a tug. It was one of my guy friends, and he had grabbed ahold of me. I chuckled nervously and attempted to break his grip, but he held tighter, pulling me toward him. He had consumed quite a few drinks, much more than I. His eyes were cloudy, far away. He didnt seem to notice my discomfort. This friend, whom I had known since ninth grade and es, wasnt my friend all of a sudden. Everything else is blurry. I remember yanking myself forward, hard, out of his grip. I remember him curling his hand around his drink again, putting his back to me. I remember everyone in the room had noticed nothing as I sprinted to sit beside my best friend, shocked and thankful all at once for the crowd of people in the room. I was lucky I was with a group that night. I had thought that guy was a friend, someone I could trust. I dont think he knew what he was doing, nor do I think he has any recollection of the incident.

Without parental supervision, a new student might feel inclined to do anything and everything, if only as an experiment. Other students might feel frightened and lonely without the support and comfort of their loved ones. In either case, I hope to convince you that college is, indeed, a time that can be very exciting and adventuresome. But as with anything, there are many more wrong ways of doing it than right ways. make it. deep breath and trust me on this one. Things will fall into place a lot more easily than you think.

I mentioned something earlier about autonomy and personhood. Indeed, when you leave this place you should be a much different person than you were when you came in. You should not only have a title, but you should be a person worthy of the title. By the time this in-between stage is over, you should be ready to take on the mantle of adulthood. aside, an adult is responsible over his or her obligations. Adults ure. An adult is proactive.

Welcome, Class of 2017, to the University of Florida, to Gainesville and to the start of your college experience. The beginning of the school year is always a time of optimism and promise for the future. But that is especially true this year and with your entering class. As always, our campus is replete with possibilities for different classes and majors. We have students and faculty from all over the world, quality teaching, exciting research and a huge choice of extracurricular activities. our 160-year history, Floridas politied our ambitions of becoming one of the top-10 public universities in the country.

Some of you may wonder why UF needs to make this climb now. The truth is, its because of you and the students who will follow in your footsteps.

This is true not only when considering the quality of your educational experience while you are here on campus, but also the value of your degrees to employers down the road.

Jen Day Shaw (@UFDeanJen) is the associate vice president and dean of students for the Division of Student Affairs. You matter and UF caresGuest columnThere are a few basics to successful dorm living. Follow this advice, and youll survive with some money to spare. Dont, and youll be broke. Simple, right? Rule No. 1 is to keep your key on you at all times. Keep your key on a lanyard around your neck and fall asleep wearing it if you have to! (Actually, that might be dangerous, so dont.) If you get locked out, youll be issued a temporary replacement key. Youre allowed a number of free lockouts for the whole year, and they run out quickly! After that, theyll start charging a bunch of money for each successive lock out. Rule No. 2 is to familiarize yourself with your area. Learn the lay of the land area can offer you. Every dorm area comes equipped with washing machines and dryers, but did you know that the dorms also have a maintenance service called iService? The next thing that you have to realize is your RA is both an employee and a normal person. So, Rule No. 3 is dont make his or her life a living hell by doing dumb things. Plastic plates will melt on the stove or in the oven. This should be obvious. The corollary to this is to learn the rules and abide by them. Remember, the RA is also an excellent resource for all of your questions. Dont be afraid to talk to him or her. Rule No. 4 is to have fun with it. Dorm life is a novel experience. Its something that can only happen while youre in college. But this leads to our Rule No. 5: Make sure you leave after one year. After the novelty has worn off, and after youve grown more accustomed to standing on your own two feet, theres not much use worth if you move off campus.

Its an interesting phenomenon, said Goldman, the executive director of the Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student and Community Center. When they come to college, they want to connect on their own terms with their faith. Theyre actually choosing to on their own terms with their peers, their friends. Its encouraging to see those choices being made.

For students who are exploring or seeking out stronger belief, he suggested remaining open-minded and positive.

That is, of course, after following a few rules to make everyones lives a little more enjoyable on gamedays. So you won the lottery congratulations. Now you get to wait in line every Tuesday through Thursday (the week before each game) at Gate 13 while its sweltering hot outside. Whomever you pick up tickets with is whom youll be sitting next to. But your friends dont have to be physically present to claim their tickets. If you get a group of friends together, you can send some ambassadors from the group with everyones IDs. But if you didnt win the lottery, youre not out of luck. The university-approved way to get tickets is to try and buy unclaimed ones Thursday night on www.gatorzone.com. But if you dont want to wait, you can buy tickets off other students. The best places to look are Craigslist and Facebook try one of the ticket exchange groups. Remember the face value of each ticket is $15, and the closer to the game it is, the cheaper the tickets will likely get. Now for getting into the game. Have your student ID and ticket with you. Dont try smuggling in alcohol, drinks or snacks while getting into the stadium, because your bags will be checked. Bring cash if youre hungry for stadium food, or just stuff yourself before you enter. A good idea is to swing by the stagame so you dont get turned away. but a general rule of thumb is to not be a jerk. This includes not standing on the bleachers, not being a sloppy mess and not sneaking in friends youd be surprised how claustrophobic the place can get. Booing the other team is optional, and youll hear other students do it, but its usually better to take the high road and stay classy which means yelling orange or blue at the top of your lungs. Dont forget UF traditions. Any Gator worth his salt will do his best to tailgate before the game, or at least spend the day outside, especially come October. Get some friends together and try a picnic if you cant get a fullon tailgate going, and enjoy the atmosphere. For home games, come a little early so you can get the whole experience, including the Two Bits chant and AC/DCs Thunderstruck. And dont dare leaving until the third quarter, where the whole stadium links arms and sings We are The Boys.Guide to Gator Gameday: Dont be a jerk, follow traditionsGamedays are the best days, but the heat can be brutal if youre not prepared.

UF has four Greek councils: the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, the Multicultural Greek Council and the National Pan-Hellenic Council. Of the 25 chapters in the Interfraternity Council, 24 have houses that can mostly be found on Fraternity Row. The rush process for the IFC begins Sept. 8 and ends Sept. 12. The female version of the IFC is the Panhellenic Council, which has 16 chapters. All women who decide to rush will be brought to each house, and then they will narrow down their preferences. Rush starts Friday and ends Aug. 25. The cost for joining can vary depending on the chapter. The average cost for the IFC is about $2,800, and for the Panhellenic Council its about $3,200. The Multicultural Greek Council is made up of 13 fraternities and sororities rooted in Hispanic and Asian cultures. None have houses. The process for joining differs based on the group, but you could be asked to do an interview or attend group activities. Dues average around $270.

I was excited to pack up and head to the Swamp, but I worried if I had made the right decision. How could I commit to bleeding orange and blue when my closet was full of green and gold? As a transfer student from the University of South Florida, coming to a new school in the middle of my college career seemed daunting. How do you feel like a Gator when youre used to rooting for the opposing team? Get into gameday Even if you never went to a sporting event at your old school, being in a college stadium can make you feel a part of something. You dont need to paint your entire body, but going to at least one game will get you one step closer to being a Gator. Plus, youll be amazed at what adding a little orange and blue to your wardrobe can do to your spirit. Take a tour You probably knew where every building on campus was at your old school. But even if all your classes are in the same room at UF it doesnt hurt knowing where things are. Get acquainted with the campus You dont want to have to ask someone where a building is, and not even have the excuse of being a freshman. Buddy up a professor Professors in your college have had the opportunity to take note of your peers for the past two years. Being the new guy in town, its important to set up a time to meet with your professors and introduce yourself. Feeling like a Gator can be as simple as building a friendly relationship with a faculty member. You cant feel a part of UF if not one professor knows your name. Plus, when the time comes to ask for reference letters youll be glad you made the effort. Join a club Meeting new people can be hard as a transfer student by junior year many students have established their core group of friends on campus. Maybe its one of the most obvious suggestions, but joining a club or an intramural sport can be a great way to feel like youre a part of university life and make friends. There is practically a club for every interest; it doesnt hurt to try one or two out. If all else fails, at least learn the words to We Are the Boys.Transfers can feel like Gators, tooBraddy Know your city governmentPainting the 34th Street Wall is a student tradition, and it should be on everyones bucket list before they graduate.

Like, heres one: Sororities are strictly regulated due to brothel laws. As the legend goes, sorority houses at some campuses are limited because outdated laws women from living together. But the area around the campus is littered with sorority houses. And a quick search of the City of Gainesville Code of Ordinances shows no law prohibiting any gathering of women. Another: A psychic predicted murders on a college campus on national TV, and it came true. Nope. First off, who believes in psychics anyway? But on a serious note, in 1990, Danny Rolling one from Santa Fe. The murders became known as the Gainesville Ripper killings and served as the inspiration for the movie Scream.

26, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 BROOKE PERRYAvenue WriterBeing a new student on a campus of nearly 50,000, chances are you want to do so many new things you get overwhelmed just thinking about them all. But slow down there, newbies. There are also several things you will want to avoid at all costs. 1. Looking like a freshman This bullet can be dodged in just a few easy steps. First, take off that lanyard. We have all made the mistake of wearing our new Preview handout proudly around our necks. When you remove the jingling dorm key, fob and whatever else is hanging on that clunky thing, you also lower your chances of standing out like the freshman you are. Secondly, try to avoid wearing too much orange and blue. School spirit is great, but if youre blending into the walls in The Swamp, it might be lastly, avoid getting lost. Never be afraid to ask for directions, but check out where your classes are located the day before school starts, and practice getting to them from the place you will be right before then. 2. Lines and most Turlington handouts If there is ever a line for an elevator or it need to get to is a single digit number, take the stairs. You will probably end up getting there faster and burning calories at the same time. Its a win-win. If you are not aware of this yet, Turlington Plaza is a common place for people about and will end up throwing away. Some of these people are very persistent and will not let you just walk away. You can try to divert the situation by walking around it, avoiding eye contact by noticing you just happened to get a new text (wink, wink) or by making your your backpack like a baby be creative. But also know that sometimes you can get some pretty cool handouts in this area as well as at the Reitz, from T-shirt giveaways to free pizza. 3. Sleep deprivation Although the college lifestyle is rumored to be a sleep-free zone full of all-nighters, it is important to get rest. Sleeping well helps your memory and keeps your immune system healthy. A Healthy Gators student survey completed in Spring 2013 showed that 43 percent of students woke up for the four to seven days before the survey was taken feeling rested. This advice is not for everyone, but moving into a new environment can alter many habits. Dont let this be one of them. Research shows that teens and young adults need nine to 10 hours of sleep, said GatorWell Health Promotion Specialist Jane Emmeree. Emmeree explained that people should be able to tell how theyre sleeping by how they wake up. If having trouble sleeping, evaluate the environment you are in by temperature, noise and light. Choices youve made throughout the day can also affect you here, like drinking too much caffeine. But live and learn. Protect your sleep, Emmeree said, It relationships, emotional health, and physical well-being. 4. Rain Unfortunately, this one is unavoidable. Always carry an umbrella, even if it looks like it will be a perfect day. Gainesville has a way of pouring down rain without warning, and it can either be a short shower or a few hours of Hurricane Albert. Rain boots and rain jackets are wise purchases, too. 5. Failing If you are struggling in classes, always go to your professor for help. Sometimes you might be in a class with 300 other people, so knowing your teacher is important. teacher and turn yourself from a number to a face, First Year Florida instructor Matt Pendleton said. If you ever need help in a class, its a lot easier when you have that personal connection. Attendance is also important, even if your class is online. If there is an option to attend an online class in person, do it. It is also a good idea to completely read your syllabus, and dates in a planner. Clear your mind about what high school was, he said. College is your full-time job. You are employed by the university, and your job is to pass these classes.UF freshmen, heres how not to be such obvious freshmen baby gatorsBrooke Perry / AlligatorIn a posed photo, UF public health student Emily Thompson (left) and animal sciences student Alexa Penalta talk about their lanyards and Gator gear on campus.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 27 A GOOD DIET COULD MAKE FOR A HEALTHIER MIND. BRANDON LEE GAGNEAvenue WriterFor freshmen, eating can be a challenge. Youve been thrust into a new environment, and youre feeling the birth pangs of your newfound adulthood. Nostalgic for your family and the nutrition they gave you, you must now cut own source of nutrition. How can you do this without starving or going broke? Follow these simple rules. Rule number one: Dont, dont, dont buy a meal plan. The meal plan is an absolute scam. The food looks great during Preview, but its not that great once youve got a meal plan, especially not at such a steep price. The portions are small, badly cooked and dont taste very good. Im not blaming the staff of the Gator Dining locations. They do the best they can with the resources theyre given. They work really hard, but until there are some major changes with the dining program, its not worth the money. Besides, why would you deprive yourself of the experience of learning how to stand on your own two feet by cooking your own meals? Its better to learn to cook for yourself now as a freshman, while conceding as a junior, when youll Rule number two is to develop a plan. This rule requires a couple mine what your body requires in order to thrive. Harvards Nutrition Source website is an excellent resource. The major parts of any meal should be vegetables and protein. Grains arent seen as the staff of life anymore. A diet of ramen noodles might keep you alive for now, but you might be making plenty of hospital visits later in life. Its much cheaper to just eat right now, and it doesnt have to cost too much. The second step of this rule is to come up with a list of potential meals for yourself for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Maybe breakfast is eggs, spinach and some orange juice. Maybe one nights meal consists of chicken, mixed vegetables and rice. You dont have to come up with a ton of different, complex meals. Keep it simple, silly. One nights chicken might be in a spicy stir fry, while the next nights chicken could have a more Latin If you need ideas for meals, just look them up on the Internet. There are plenty of sites dedicated to colThe third step of this rule is to and get it. If youre reading this while your parents are still in town, recruit their help. You might need a fridge, a pan, a pot and a spatula. Thats all I needed for a while. Rule number three is to buy in bulk. This step, the actual buying, is the trickiest because you probably dont have a car. Fortunately, Gainesvilles bus service is superb. Familiarize yourself with where the stores are and which routes travel there. Be aware that routes are different on weekends. Download the TransLoc Transit Visualization app to track the buses in real time. I highly recommend a Sams Club card. Its a little bit of a walk from the bus stop to the store, but if you go frequently enough the membership will more than pay itself off. If you think that you dont have time to make one trip a week to the grocery store, then make time. I promise you that you can make time for this trip. Make sure you bring a big backpack with you and maybe even a couple of totes. The fourth rule is to buy frozen goods. I cant emphasize enough how awesome buying frozen is. There has been some debate as to whether certain foods are more nutritious when purchased frozen or less nutritious. In either case, Im not sure you can go too wrong buying frozen. Its way cheaper than buying fresh, and canned is probably poisonous thanks to Bisphenol A (BPA). with it. what youre doing. Start out by following some recipes as closely as you can, or ask a friend about their techniques. Just keep at it, and before you know it youre going to want to start experimenting. As always, exercise safety. Never leave the stove unattended! The last rule is on spoilage. There are three ways of knowing if a food is not safe for eating, and theyre all free, provided by evoluis to use the nose, because the nose knows. That fantastic device can detect if the chemicals in a food have become infested with organisms or compounds that are bad for you. If it smells bad, dont secondguess your nose It knows! The second way of knowing if your food is spoiled is to use your eyes. Sometimes your seasoning will keep the food smelling nice, but if you just look at it, then youll know that theres something growing on it. If your vision is impaired, remember what seasonings you used and the smell of the food before it was stored. Any amount of spoilage will yield a different smell, but sometimes its too subtle for most to detect. The last method to use is the taste test. If it tastes bad, spit it out and throw it away. It wont nourish you. It will poison you. A good diet coupled with exercise and enough sleep should make for a healthier body and mind. Its an investment. Not only will you feel better, look better, and do better in class, but youll save on those hospital visits I mentioned earlier. It might seem like a lot now, but youll have it all down in no time, champ.Rules for college eating: Make a plan, buy frozen food, have fun

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 29 MELISSA KAHANAvenue Writermkahan@alligator.orgHaving a UF student ID regardless of how hideous the picture on it from Preview money-saving, time-saving and all around your ticket to making life in Gainesville just a tad easier. 1. Drink specials You will undoubtedly rack up a huge tab over the span of your time at UF let alone in one night at a relatively decent bar, club or restaurant. There are certain magical days that boast discounts for drinks to college students. This will probably be advertised in the form of Student Night, College Night or Young People Rock Night. OK, that drinks at a discount whether its BOGO or half off just for being a student. 2. Free Regional Transit System bus rides. Gainesville can easily seem like it is totally dominated by the university, but eventually, you will want to venture outside the brick walls. Those big blue RTS buses are free when you show your Gator 1 Card. And parking around Gainesville and on campus, in general, is so limited that it is infuriating. 3. Free Lake Wauburg access Among the parks, bike trails and swimming pools near UF, theres the UF-owned gem that is Lake Wauburg. Present your Gator 1 Card, and you and your car of people assuming you didnt clown-car-pack everyone in can use the facilities. You can lay out on one of the chairs, dip your toes in the slightly murky waters, swan dive off the dock, rent a kayak, explore every inch of the lake, paddleboard and so much more. 4. Discounted movie tickets OK, this is a general student thing, but the discounted student tickets at the local movie theaters are actually pretty decent. Take your Gator 1 Card to get on the RTS bus dont forget the free part and a discounted student ticket will provide you with not a bad way to spend an evening away from campus. 5. Cheap game day tickets If you didnt know already, gamedays at UF are no joke. Football is an obviterm gameday arises, but having a Gator 1 Card will also give you access to basketball games, gymnastics meets and other sports events at UF. Not only does being a student at UF allow you to enter the football ticket lottery if you didnt do it this year, it is well worth it next year but if you win, it guarantees a seat at every home game, provided you pick up the tickets. Even if you didnt enter or win the lottery, unclaimed tickets are $15 a pop and are only for UF students. Those other sports? Free for UF students. The Gators are 6. Gator Nights Gator Nights may not seem like the most happening way to spend a Friday night, but when you dont know where to go and are corn and game booths at the Reitz Union arent so bad. This especially holds true on those nights with free improv from Theatre Strike Force, pancakes and crafts. Its a great way to meet new people and have some free fun. Just dont forget that Gator 1 Card.The perks of being a student insider tips tThis column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Im a girl and I like to go out a lot. I just want to hang out with my girls and sometimes a few guys will try to talk to us. Im okay with that, but how do I get the creepy annoying ones off of my back? Dear Friend,Tell them you used to be a man. If they believe you, there is an enormous chance they will just walk away. If they dont believe you, they will be really impressed at how far you would go to make a guy leave you alone and understand they are not welcome. Not everyone has the balls to say they used to have a dick. Dear Mediocre Advice, I feel like Im really putting myself out there. I want to hook-up, but he doesnt seem to get the message. Why are some guys such pussies? A guy is not a pussy if he does you. Hes not interested or just not in terested as much as you are. Maybe hes into one of your friends. You may want to hook-up, but do not assume that he knows that. Dont encourage guys to make a move on anyone that smiles back at them. Its confusing to guys and pisses off the girls that were want to make a move, do it, but dont go running around saying some guy is a wimp because he doesnt want to f--you back. Dear Mediocre Advice, How do I get into UF? Dear Friend, Study your a-off and quit dicking around. If you have not chosen a major yet, pick something non-competitive. It is completely true that you can do anything you set your mind to. You can become an orca whale trainer at Sea World, an Arnold Schwarzenegger im personator or the guy on the corner of University and 13th half of the time. Reach for the stars.

30, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 MELISSA KAHANAvenue WriterNight life in Gainesville is certainly not for the faint of liver. This large college town with an active Greek community and a multitude of eclectic clubs comes with its own set of night life procedures, from which place has what special/event/rager to the people you show up with. Heres our advice for doing Gainesvegas the right way: 1. Pregame like no other Whether youre underage or a seasoned veteran of the night life, it never hurts to pregame. Think of how much money youll be saving by buying a handle of vodka than buying overpriced diluted-cranberry-andvodka drinks at the club. 2. Get yourself an established D.D. Gainesville cops are no joke. Dont think you wont get caught drunk driving. Crying wont save you here. 3. Know where to go and when Various nights at various places boast a wide array of specials, themed nights and certain crowds. In Midtown, Balls and Salty Dog are tiny, cramped and all around pretty gross bars, but they are great for a cheap drink and some fratty sing-alongs. Gator City, which is attached to Envy, has 10-cent wells on Friday nights, along with other deals throughout the week, such as Karaoke night on Thursday night and ladies night Wednesday night. Ladies night will be your best friend, no matter if you are a guy or girl. 101 Cantina has Margarita Mondays enough said and other specials each night, but dont even try to get in with a fake I.D. they require two forms half of the time for baby-faced freshmen. This new wave of students just missed out on late night gorge spot Munchies 420, which was right above Fat Daddys known for its frozen alcoholic drinks and athlete-spotting. Speaking of which, Grog is a whole other story. Id put money down that it spot, but Ryan Lochte loves it. (Note: He is known as more of an eyesore to the Gainesville community now than anything. Thanks, WWRLD?) And of course, visit The Swamp for great outdoor seating/drinking space, but thats the extent. The Midnight, The Bull, Tall Pauls and most smaller bars and restaurants downtown are more on the hipster side and will be sure to provide an interesting drink experience. But the clubs downtown are the total opposite, as 101 Downtown, famous for Techno Tuesdays, Sharab, Simons Nightclub, known for techno Simons Saturdays, and the rest of the dimly lit, mellow. Spannk is best known for Neon Liger, the EDM-playing, eclectic Le Neon Liger dance parties usually on Saturday nights. Like country music? :08 has the whole nine yards on Thursday nights: line dancing, cowboy boots and free drinks for ladies before midnight. Where you go depends on the vibe you want, but the right place with the right music is crucial. A little online research never hurt to see whats happening which night. 4. Follow Facebook event pages and promoters There are quite a few nightlife promoters, including Uber Promotions and The Dynasty Group, and Facebook pages that let you know if any major events are happening and what night each club has each day, such as a ladies night. You can often times get on a list which will allow you to get into a club earlier, at a cheaper price and through a special line with fewer people. Better yet, make personal friends with a promoter. They see you, they get you in, problem solved.Your four-step guide to navigating Gainesvilles night life out on the town

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 35THE ADAM BOMBAlthough the Emmy-nominated Scandal doesnt return to ABC unvoid of twists and turns. In the summer of Manziel, controversy reached all the way to Archer and University with an alleged murder and dog barker. College is a safe haven, but now with constant media attention, campuses more closely resemble a pool of piranhas. Yet, one sanctuary still exists the football With each turnstile turn, each ticket scan, each touchdown catch, arrest reports become pass. When the whistle blows on Aug. 31, it will be more about the orange and blue instead of the green and white. Florida faces Toledo in 17 days without its middle linebacker Antonio Morrison. What it will have is 15 starters returning from an 11-win season. More importantly, it boasts an experienced quarterback, an athletic defensive line and the deepest secondary in the country. Morrisons arrest on July 21 shows he shouldve been more careful (what college student would ever stay around Williston Road at 3 a.m.?). I found out about the dogbarking incident late that next day in New York City. By the time I woke up Tuesday morning, Morrison became a punch line ironic for a linebacker who packs a serious punch. National and local media irresponsibly billed him as a problem child: A player Will Muschamp should kick to the curb. A player the third-year coach should send on a one-way ticket to Bolingbrook, Ill. A player wasting away the golden ticket. Damage done. Its clear for now that Morrison will be than for playing on it. It will be at least three weeks before he plays. Snap judgments are a part of college football (hence this prediction column). Take Johnny Manziel. A dark cloud seems to follow the Heisman Trophy winner like black smoke suffocating smokers in PSAs or The Monster that tortured characters in Lost. The media and school are gigging Manziel to death. College, a time of development, has become a job for him (allegedly). Every step, every decision is scrutinized. Its miserable. His own school newspaper, The Battalion, ran a column that told him to leave in response to an angry late-night tweet from Manziel ripping College Station. Where safe place if he cant feel safe in his own backyard? These players are developing on and off What were you doing at 20? Football players make mistakes. Some change programs, while all of them change lives. One bad tweet here and a misconceived idea there turn into a viral feeding frenzy at the click of a button. Maybe this is all nave, but its time we concentrate on the football. While Charlie Strongs yellow Gatorade bath stings and stains an otherwise historic season, I remember Matt Elam punching ing forced fumble. I remember Jeff Driskel making the Commodores defense sing the blues in Nashville and Morrison knocking out EJ Manuel as a stunned Doak Campbell crowd fell silent. Expect more of the same from a Gators team dependent on controlling the football and the line of scrimmage. Florida should contend with Georgia and South Carolina for a spot to Atlanta. Yet its too early too tell. Players like Manziel could come out of nowhere (Matt Jones, anybody?). If this confusing offseason has taught us anything, its that Im not judging yet and neither should you. Itll be a different kind of noise echoing in The Swamp in 17 days. As August turns to September, itll be time to turn the page on a summer we would all like to forget.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff WriterDanny Wuerffel popularized it. Rex Grossman accomplished it most often in program history. Tim Tebow put a stamp on his historic career by doing it. Since then, a Florida quarterback passing for 300 yards in a single game has occurred stunningly few times. Since the beginning of the year as starting quarterback the Gators have thrown for 300 yards in a game just once: Brantleys 16-for-28 performance for 329 yards in a 5432 victory against Furman on Nov. 19, 2011. To put that in perspective, Grossman threw for 300 yards or more 17 times during his career. Tebow, also no stranger to eclipsing the benchmark, threw for a program-record 482 yards Junior quarterback Jeff Driskel has never thrown for 300 yards in a game. His careerbest came last season against Tennessee when he completed 14 of 20 passes for 219 yards. Second-year offensive coordinator Brent Pease still believes Driskel could become a consistent 300-yard passer while at UF. He has the ability to do it, Pease said. He has the ability to do it in this system. He has the ability to do it off his skills. If Driskel is to develop into became best known for during the Steve Spurrier and Urban provement will be required. Including his performance against Tennessee, Driskel passed for more than 200 yards just twice last season the lone other occurrence coming a week later against Kentucky. In fact, Driskel failed to pass for 100 yards four times last season UF won each game en in the Southeastern Conference and 118th out of 124 teams nationally by averaging 146.3 passing yards per game. Its more throwing the ball over the top, just stretching the to do, Pease said of what must improve. Thats route running, accuracy with the ball, protection at times, and theres a lot that becomes involved in it. Florida returning to its heytaking deep shots is unlikely to return. As Pease said, Our game is going to be wear them down up front. But for the Gators to develop a more balanced offense than the one that often lagged last season, creating an aerial attack will be critical. Were gonna have to hit more big plays, Driskel said at UFs media day. We cant run the ball 50 times a game like we did last year at points. Were still gonna run the ball effectively but we do have to make more plays throwing the ball. The biggest key to an improved passing game will be Floridas ability to create explosive plays through the air. The Gators had only 28 pass plays of 20 yards or longer last season. Twelve went 30 yards or more. Without Jordan Reed, whose athleticism made him Driskels favorite target, the Gators will rely on a committee of tight ends and receivers to replace his production. Tight end Clay Burton said has seen at this point in camp. quarterbacks have more reads and the guys are more open because of the spacing, concepts of the routes and things like that, Burton said.

PHILIBUSTERFor anyone who is a ravenous consumer of sports and entertainment, the summer months can be trying times. Baseball is in full swing, but thats about it. The NBA and NHL playoffs end sometime in June, and minus a couple of mini camps that dont really matter, the NFL is on a full hiatus. Television can be much the same. Ive been so starved for something interesting that I have spent hours watching Big Brother 15. The summer is pop culture purgatory until August comes and awakens the soul. For me, I am now most interested in two things: How the Gators perform because Breaking Bad, what I believe to be the best show on television. So as each gets going, Ill take a look at three storylines entering UFs season told through quotes from characters in Breaking Bad. You clearly dont know who youre talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think of me? No! I am the one who knocks! Walter White Floridas passing game was out of 120 teams nationally. That must improve this season. Jeff Driskel and his receiving corps must some threat to opposing defenses that will look to crowd the box and slow Matt Jones. If Demarcus Robinson, Quinton Dunbar or some of Floridas other explosive skill players can answer the call, the Gators offense could go from being the ones who open the door to being the ones that knocked just as Walter did when he became the kingpin of his empire. This kicks like a mule with its balls wrapped in duct tape! Tuco Salamanca After losing Matt Elam and Sharrif Floyd to the NFL draft, maintain the identity they had on defense. In 2012, Floridas secondary was full of ball-hawking playmakers. The defensive line had the depth to continually make life hell for opposing quarterbacks. Entering this season, the depth and talent remain, but guys like Cody Riggs, Antonio Morrison and Leon Orr need to unleash the beasts within themselves for the UF defense to be dominant once again. You are a wealthy man now. One must learn to be rich. To be poor, anyone can manage. Gus Fring The way Walter transformed from a broke high school chemistry teacher to a conglomerate is the situation the Gators currently face. After two subpar seasons, Florida did not carry the target it did during the heyday of Urban Meyer and Steve Spurrier. That worked radar for much of the season they opened the year No. 23 in the polls and eventually won 11 games to earn a trip to the Sugar Bowl. The stakes are raised this year. Fans were offered a taste of the success they so desperately crave last season, and opponents were put on high alert that Florida is back. For as much progress as was made in Year Two under Will Muschamp, coming up short of Atlanta for a third consecutive year would leave a sour taste in the mouths of everyone. Expectations are high. How will the Gators respond? I believe well enough to make their Game since 2009.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 37AS STEIN ON TVThis was the summer of discontent for Gators fans. Between Aaron Hernandez being arrested for an alleged murder, Riley Cooper saying pretty terrible things and Antonio Morrison getting arrested twice, Florida has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. And things didnt improve once camp started. At Southeastern Conference Media Days in July, coach Will Muschamp said the team was almost entirely healthy going into camp. But by UF media day Aug. 1, quarterback Jeff Driskel had his appendix removed, running back Matt Jones contracted a serious viral infection, starting offensive guard Jon Halapio suffered a partially torn pectoral muscle and lineman Max Garcia injured his back. The injury bug didnt stop there. Within a week of camp starting, redshirt senior Andre Debose and freshman Matt Rolin suffered torn ACLs. So let the season begin. We can sit and discuss injuries, depth charts and projections all we want, but all the preseason hype in the world doesnt compare to one Saturday of football. Get out your calendars and circle some dates. season. Not quite the full slate of games featured on Saturdays, but it will be a good night. North Carolina vs. South Carolina kicks off at 6 p.m. All it will take is one Jadeveon Clowney Ole Miss at Vanderbilt starts right after, which will be a good match up of two potential up-and-coming SEC teams. And heres the big one for most of you reading this column Saturday, Aug. 31. Toledo at Florida, the Swamp in more than nine months. game isnt exactly a marquee matchup. third in its division in the Mid-American Conference last season. But even if the opening game isnt against a top out-of-conference opponent like Oklahoma or Notre Dame, it is still plenty exciting. Its the start of a new season something to make everyone excited. The streets will be terrible. The buzz that makes Gainesville a great place to spend a weekend will be back. This season starts with as much optimism as any since Ive been in Gainesville. I arrived in Year One A.T. thats After Tebow. The hype surrounding John Brantley revolutionizing Floridas passing attack died quickly, as did any hopes for a national championsip. Year Two A.T. wasnt much better, so the fan base was pretty pessimistic going into 2012. But an 11-2 season and a Sugar Bowl appearance has people talking about Florida, and the Gators come into the season ranked No. 10 in the Coaches Poll (although that does not matter if you ask Muschamp). But like Flavor Flav once said, dont believe the hype. The summer is nearly over. Its time to play ball. Contact Adam Lichtenstein at alichtenstein@ alligator.org.Summer of trouble gives way to season full of expectations Adam Lichtensteintwitter: @alichtenstein24 SLATTERY WAS A TWO-TIME ALL-AMERICA SELECTION.MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer never wanted to leave the comforts of Ohio. I was the type that didnt want to go too far from home, Slaterry said. I was a homebody. The Cincinnati native said she planned on committing to the University of Dayton. Then Gators assistant Alan Kirkup noticed her. Slattery, 18, played in a tournament at Walt Disney World in Orlando before the end of her senior year of high school. Kirkup attended to watch an opposing player, Slattery said. He saw me get hit or knocked down, and I lost the ball, and I guess I just started smiling and laughing, she said. He remembered seeing me do that and loved that I smiled after I got hit. I think he saw my potential, and l think that is what he loved most about me. When the time came to meet coach Becky Burleigh and visit the UF campus, Slattery said the choice was obvious. I knew right when I came and talked to Becky, saw the school and saw [the team] play on top of everything, I was like, This is where Ive got to be. I cant pass this opportunity up, she said. Slattery made a smooth transition to Gainesville despite having to leave her family behind. The girls here are so awesome, and they make you feel so at home that it helps keep my mind off things, she said. Slattery joins a roster of 27 players, coming in with numerous accolades from high school and club soccer. She was a back-to-back NSCAA High School All-America selection at her high school career with 66 goals and 36 assists and led the Cincinnati United Premier Crew Jr. Gold 94/95 club team in the 2011-2012 season with 13 goals. Even with her offensive experience, Slattery said she sees her role on the team as a defensive centermid. You have to have a lot of composure and you have to stay strong to your role, Slattery said. Youre going to get the ball to people who will make something happen in the attacking third on things, not losing your role and trying to do everything. I was the type that didnt want to go too far from home.Liz Slattery

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 39FIRE JOE MORGANWide receivers coach Joker Phillips is a Photoshop wizard, and offensive coordinator Brent Pease proved quick-witted when it came to Jeff Driskels boredom. Even coach Will Muschamp became involved, jokingly bemoaning our generations beloved hashtag and insisting we call it a number sign. So why wouldnt Twitter maintain its stronghold on Florida football during the season? As Muschamps 105 characters aim to build on a stellar 11-2 record in 2012, heres what I see trending for UF this year. Naturally, each is preceded by a hash uh, number sign. #Violators Perhaps the opposition should get a better grip on the football this year. Turnover margin was a key component in Floridas resurgence last season. I expect plenty of ball hawking by the Gators in 2013. #OOMF The sound football players make when they hit each other. Wait, that means something else? What did one of my followers do? #Driskel&Ebert Unless he kept his football talent in his appendix, I believe Driskel will earn #twothumbsup in 2013. Added experience, increased familiarity with Peases offensive scheme and the lack of a quarterback competition will help him step into the leadership role the Gators #MurphysLaw Florida should assign a Secret Service detail to protect Driskel. Like his rogue ex-appendix, danger pops up when you least expect it. With all due respect to Tyler Murphy, Driskel is the Gators lone viable starting quarterback. If Driskel gets hurt, Muschamp cant simply shut off his Xbox like the rest of us. #BieberFever When is Justin Bieber not trending on Twitter? Its inevitable. #NeedForReed Who can replace the departed Jordan Reed? The blocking will be OK, but if none emerge as half the passcatcher Reed was last year, that would spell trouble even for Peyton Manning because #PleaseCatchSomething Returning wide receivers not named Quinton Dunbar combined for eight catches and 44 yards last season. One of those guys, Andre Debose, is done for the season with a torn ACL. Talented freshman Demarcus Robinson is the wild card. Can he step in and produce from Day 1? I think so. #NoFlyZone Floridas secondary is one of the best in the country even after losing Matt Elam and Josh Evans. I can merely say names to prove my point. Loucheiz Purifoy. Marcus Roberson. Jaylen Watkins. Vernon Hargreaves III. #1000K Matt Jones will become the ninth Gator to rush for 1,000 yards in a season. Recovering from his recent illness may take some time, but I expect Jones to hit the ground running. Once he settles back in, he will be a game-changer. #ItsAlmostAsGreatUF The Gators will win fewer games this season than last, but they will be a better team. Excluding the loss to Georgia, seemingly every break went Floridas way in 2012. The Gators will make it through the nations toughest schedule with eight or nine wins and a Jan. 1 bowl berth. #HotAsHell Two noon kickoffs in the Florida heat to begin the season? Must be nice for those insane ESPN executives to make decisions like that from the comfort of air-conditioned conference rooms. #CoachBoom Should we expect anything different than Muschamps trademark passion on the sidelines? Look forward to another season of Muschamp emotions ripe for GIFs and memes. Never change, Your Boomness, never change. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR, 41FOOTBALL ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff WriterFlorida had several established upperclassmen to lead the defense in 2012. Matt Elam was already one of the top safeties in the nation, and Josh Evans had cemented himself at the free safety position. But this season, Florida is looking to another defender to step up to Purifoy. ing more from last year. Florida remains deep at the cornerback position. Besides Purifoy, the Gators return junior Marcus Roberson and senior Jaylen Watkins. Roberson and Watkins combined for Purifoy has seen his stock rise begoing to be better than he was last year. Keeping my hands up, Purifoy proved. Finishing tackles Other secondary is at safety, where they need to replace Elam and Evans. Muschamp moved junior cornerthe hole. Riggs played in only two games in 2012 before sitting out the rest of the season with a fractured foot. something was wrong and then ken. because we were having such a and watch. Muschamp thinks Riggs will be able to improve pass coverage while playing at safety. and Evans combined for seven interceptions last season. You need to be able to have a guy that can cover in the slot and cover and play man-to-man, Muschamp said. And he does that well. on just playing safety, watching stepped my game up a lot. Purifoy thinks Florida will have up to replace Elam and Evans. The Gators brought in several highly touted recruits to add to the secondary, including Vernon Hargreaves try, according to Rivals.com. [Vernon] came in smart, Puria good technique You can tell here. He can get his hands on the ball, he got a knack for it. And at safety, Florida brought in four-star recruits Marcell Harris, Keanu Neal and Nick Washington.

42, ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013WHAT TO EXPECT LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff WriterIt may be August and football is the dominant sport here in Gainesville but college basketball season is approaching sooner than you think. Thanks to new NCAA legislation, teams can now hold 30 practices during a 42-day span before the start of the regular season in mid-November. With the Gators training camp set to begin about two weeks earlier than it would in the past, expect practices to possibly start in late September. Since Floridas Elite Eight exit on March 31, the Gators offseason has been clouded with uncertainty. Here are six questions about UF yet to be answered as it approaches the regular season in about two and a half months: 1. Will Chris Walker and Eli Carter be cleared to play? The Gators are still awaiting the NCAA Clearinghouses ruling on Walker, who is dealing with academic eligibility issues. Walker, the No. 6 recruit in Rivals.coms rankings for the Class of 2013, would put the Gators over the top. His perimeter skills and ball handling still need work, but the Bonifay native would add plenty of athleticism and shot-blocking to the Gators frontcourt if he is ruled eligible. Donovan is also awaiting word on Carters eligibility for the 2013-14 season, but the Rutgers transfer guards chances to play this season looks brighter than Walkers hopes. Following the mess Mike Rice left at Rutgers after allegedly verbally and physically abusing his players, Carter is hoping to receive clearance from Rutgers and a waiver from the NCAA that would allow him to play for the Gators next year. Two weeks ago, Rutgers transfer guard Mike Poole was granted immediate NCAA eligibility to play at Iona, so Carters situation looks promising. Carter, who played two seasons at Rutgers and averaged 14.3 points in 56 games, would solidify the Gators young backcourt especially with starting point guard Scottie Wilbekins status in limbo. 2. Will Wilbekin rejoin the team? Donovan suspended Wilviolating team rules. At the beginning of the 2012-13 season, Wilbekin was also suspended for breaking a team rule. Donovan said last month that he would meet with Wilbekin once the fall semester starts and go from there. The Florida coach could eventually reinstate Wilbekin like he did with Erik Murphy back in car break-in. Not having Wilbekin would be a blow to UFs defense, which was ranked third in the KenPom.com. er for the Gators? potential to be a lottery pick if he lives up to his billing. Donovan should love Hills style of play this year as he thrives as a distributor in the open court. Senior center Patric Young (and maybe Walker) could see plenty of lob passes down their way from Hill. 4. Will Young step up to the plate? In an up-and-down junior season, Young averaged 10.1 points but only 6.3 rebounds per contest. The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Young has recorded consecutive games with double-digit rebounds only twice in his college career both times during his sophomore season. With Kenny Boynton, Mike Rosario and Murphy 50.5 percent of last years offense gone, Young might need to be Floridas offensive anchor. An injured right ankle could have factored into Youngs inconsistent production last season, but he needs to prove more reliNBA Draft. 5. Will the Gators win a close game this year? Florida was 0-6 in games decided by single digits last season. The most notable of those closes losses was a 66-63 defeat to Ole Contact Landon Watnick at lwatnick@alligator.org.Five burning questions surrounding Florida basketball Five burning questions surrounding Florida basketball Landon Watnicktwitter: @landonwatnick
