4 ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 By Stefano Ferreyros Former Copy Editor Editors note: Stefano Ferrey ros was a copy editor for The Alli gator for Summer 2018. He helped create The Avenues first podcast as well as The Alligators Pride Month logo. He recently moved abroad after completing his final semester of school on U.S. soil. A family isnt just biological, or something that youre born into. A family could be a group of people, related or not, coming together. Common sense tells us what a family is: some parents, a sibling or two, maybe even a dog or a cat. White picket fence, church on Sundays, you know, the nu clear family weve all grown so accustomed to seeing in idealistic TV shows and old movies. When I first moved to Gainesville, I was a bit disorient ed because I was most definitely not in Miami, a place where your family spans generations and lan guage barriers. I knew a few people from back home, but as time passed by I stopped clinging on to them and began to branch out. I joined clubs and different organizations, and through there I began to meet people who became my family. I met people who would be there when times were rough, who would stop by and have a coffee while talking out prob lems. People who I went on road trips to new cities with. People who helped me experience things that I was too scared of doing on my own. People who would help me celebrate life and our achieve ments. At UF, I made my own fam ily. A family of people who are like me, but different. A family that supports each other no mat ter what the situation. When you feel like youre alone and have no one to talk to, theyre there. Although this part of life is exciting and nerve wracking, you will meet your family. You will meet people who feel like youve known your whole life, and cant even realize how you didnt know them before. Dont force it, and dont think this will all happen in your first semester, because it might not. Give it time and let it happen naturally, little gator. My UF family is truly what makes me say that Im proud to be a Florida Gator. @stef_ferr95 The family we choose at college Dont think this will all Stefano Ferreyros Former Alligator copy editor rfntbZIP THEZOO rfntbtntnnb fntnnnbffnftn 401 NE 23rd Ave-Near Main St.(Next to TB Goods Pawn)Monday Saturday 11 am-3pm tasty ramen at great prices tasty ramen steamed buns, & mochi at great prices SweetBerriesGV The best Frozen Custard ice cream around.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 ALLIGATOR 5 BE AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE GAINESVILLE COMMUNITY By Bailey LeFever Alligator Staff Writer UF can be your place if you work a bit to embed yourself in the com munity. The crucial if lies in how Gators make use of their time here. students is evaluating where their resumes and lives are lacking. Stu dents should then pinpoint what lo cal internships, jobs and volunteer opportunities can help them land a stellar internship next summer or post-grad. Even more so, Gators should enjoy their temporary home wills. Here a few suggestions for a wellrounded school year in the ville: Look up more. Have you seen the trees in this city?! Gainesville is populated by some of the most beau tiful foliage in the state. You should spend an afternoon sunbathing with a friend or getting in some quality introspection. Explore the environment around you. Your argument that Gainesville is tired and uninteresting is com pletely untrue if you fail to explore what lies in your backyard. Take a weekend to check out First Magni tude Brewing Company and Bolen Bluff Trail. There are far more natural attractions and local establishments than we could ever suggest. Attend city commission meet ings. The agendas for these meet ings have tons of information on city planning, local politics and other Gainesville business. Youll learn more by attending these meetings than in weeks of Twitter scrolling. Taking part in and being informed of decisions that will affect your day-to-day life is democracy at its Cheer for local sports. There is far more to enjoy than the im pending football season. Become a bleacher creature at Gator soc cer games, or join a competitive in tramural team. Florida is home to some of the best club lacrosse teams in the country. Sports are found in plain sight around campus, from vol leyball games at dusk on the South west Rec courts to midday frisbee on the Plaza. Utilize area swimming pools and recreation centers. Swimming and team sports are the best way to incorporate exercise into your rou tine, allowing participants to build strong friendships and disconnect from the virtual reality for a while. Become a regular at a local coffee shop. Theres a reason why Nothing fosters community quite like shared moments in a busy day. Places like Pascals, Curia and CYM also give you an opportunity to meet people of other disciplines and walks of life in Gainesville. Dont live in a university bubble. Appreciate where you are. The phrase is clich, but the sentiment still holds weight. Far too few stu dents realize how good we have it here. There are plenty of free events, services and advice you can enjoy. Ask any upperclassman what their favorite aspect of Gainesville is, and try to accompany them to one. Above all, keep Gainesville weird.

Dont get sued. That was my mantra heading into this semester. I near ly failed at it. The Alligator nearly copped a lawsuit on a couple of occasions based on our reporting of stories. Maybe it was an overabundance of caution. Maybe it was straight-up fear. Maybe I didnt trust in The Alliga tors new reporters to begin the summer. Those concerns have all melted away with the muggy ing around important issues or self-censoring over wor ries about what advertisers would say, we as a staff have grown to accept that not everybody is going to be down with independent student journalists, least of all the folks we report on. If youve read an editorial I wrote over the summer, theres a good chance it had to do with the relationship nating. Trustworthiness is a huge deal in news media, and I think media companies can always do more to bridge the divide between writer and reader. When journalists get to tell people what they do for a living, it may be met with a slight sigh of disappointment. I mean, who doesnt love the dramatic spinning newspa per headlines in movies and reporting montages cut to upbeat jazzy tracks? So when I describe my normal day to someone whose knowledge doesnt extend past that, I Journalism is a slow burn. Its exciting in 20to 30-min ute bits, usually when youre interviewing someone or few minutes. Just remember: Dont get sued. I learned over the past semester that this is the reprise of scared men and women. Its like walking into your job The extra worry doesnt do you any favors and actively interferes with your ability to get stuff done. I dont want to use this space and time to say how much everybody meant to me or how The Alligator shaped my present and future lives. Those sentiments are well docu mented by my peers and coworkers. Its all true. I could talk forever about how Managing Engagement Editor Bai ley LeFever supported me through the darkest times, or University Editor Sarah Stanley dropping sarcasm over tor Baylie Cainas perfecting her craft while working at a Alligator as a sports beat writer but never claimed such a responsibility as this. LeFever has worked with me on some class projects, but we hardly knew each other when I hired her essentially as second in command. I didnt know Cainas or Stanley outside of their resumes when I hired them to be the main point of contact for writers. Every conventional outcome should have been fail ure. There couldve been someone suing us weekly. There couldve been chaos and a longing for the semester to be over. Now, with a new set of editors ready to lead The Alligator, I feel a tinge of regret for not doing more, even with the odds ever not in our favor. Everybody at The Alligator performed above and be yond anything I couldve imagined. Im luckier than Lou got me to see everything from a different perspective. It has yielded a new motto. Dont get complacent. Morgan McMullen was the editor in chief of The Independent Florida Alligator for Summer 2018. Dont worry about the wrong things for too long Dear readers, What started as something of an experiment in medias sus tainability has come to a successful end. Three of our editors now get a chance to say goodbye to our summer readers. Bailey LeFever, Managing Engagement Editor Quite simply, I believe that journalism is where justice, truth world and to display the facts in a humanistic way. We write stories because we care. We wrote stories on everything, from the mildly controver sial Folta step-down to interactions with therapy dogs at UF. I learned that Im passionate about story structure and cap tivating photos. Morgan taught me a lot about great editorial writing and made me listen to what I assume was every ver sion of Africa available on YouTube. I helped decide what stories should run in print, helped a culture podcast and watched new writers glow after their sto ries ran on the front page. I realized why student newsrooms are special every single night on my ride home. Watching writers and editors duke it out over which sound bites are essential quotes will teach you that. Sitting in silence while being briefed on active shooters will teach you that. Thank you for reading our words and caring about the state of our world and trying your best. To my coworkers: You make me want to be better, to lead with my heart in all that I do. All my love. I plan on sticking with the Alligator, but I wish it could always be with these people. Baylie Cainas, Metro Editor classrooms cant. A professor cant teach how it feels to have your story on the front page. No group project can ever mimic the bond be tween an editor and their writers. You cant learn how to talk to someone accused of rape from a textbook. the journalism world but dont know how: Youre looking at it. involved as a contributing writer or even a staff writer! No While I wont be in the newsroom much longer, I will never forget my experience with this paper and will always, now and for years to come, continue to read The Independent Florida Alligator. I hope you will, too. Sarah Stanley, University Editor When I started here, I expected to hunker down in a gray cubicle biweekly as pretentious writers and editors scoffed at ternship that their well-networked parents lined up for them. Thats what was rumored and what I saw from the outside. But the inside was different. I met fantastic people who genuinely cared about others. We were all there to learn, and whether we enjoyed it or not, we educated ourselves. Sources bashed writers over minor details; corrections were run after the confusion of major details. Writers started avoiding their typical AP style errors, and I learned to re-write entire stories. Im grateful for the experience and for the friends made working here. I wish you all well and look forward to reading your stories without a red pen in hand from now on. See you later, Alligator. Our editors goodbyes


WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 ALLIGATOR 7 We caught up with Juliette Da vis and Joachim Polack, the French duo behind Pearl and the Oysters. Q: What brought you guys to Florida from Paris? A: I came to Florida to do a PHD in musicology at UF," Polack said. I was in New York at the time, and when he told me about the music life and the community in Gainesville I got really excited and was happy to tag along and to re ally put life into our project, Pearl and the Oysters in Gainesville, Davis said. Q: Youve said in the past that Gainesville has been a big inspira tion in your music, how has the city inspired you? A: "We were just in California touring with the band, and coming back to Florida it was such a shock just opening our ears to the nature. Theres so many birds singing con stantly, and we are very inspired by the greenery and the nature and the exoticism of it, Davis said. Q: You guys have a very unique sound. How would you describe that sound to someone who has never heard it? A: "Thats always complicated. We love pop from the s. we try to sort of bring back that way of writing songs and arranging, but we also bring in weird early elec tronic music and some later, more video game style music, Polack said. We fool around with a lot of different synthesizers and sounds, even though the songwriting is pretty straightforward, Davis said The main thing that we try to have is a signature in terms of sound and texture. Its hard to de scribe. Theres jazz R&B elements sometimes. Its indie pop, its bed room pop. We made both of the albums in our bedrooms, Polack said. Q: What are you guys working on now? A: We have an album thats ready and it will be released in November on two different record labels. We are really excited. Were trying to prepare our shows for fall, Polack said. We want to do a kickass re lease party in November, so get prepared for that! Davis said. Q: Do you have a name for the new album? A: Its called Canned Music, Polack said. Canned Music, like music from a can! Davis said. Pearl and the Oysters Q&A: THE AVENUE TALKS WITH THREE LOCAL BANDS Emma Witmer Avenue Editor We spoke to Dillon Basse, Flipturns frontman. Q: What was it that made you want to start a band? A: Ive been playing music since I was about 5 or 6 years old. My mom plays the Massachusetts originally so when I was really little she used to drag me to these Irish session things in the Boston area. Shed take me around in a little baby cart, and I kind of grew up around music. We moved down to Florida when I got to high school. I started playing at local bars when I was like 15 around Fernandina beach. Then in my junior or senior year in high school, Madeline and Tristan came to me with this idea of starting a band. They both played instruments and we all had similar taste in music... we got Adrian on board and then Taylor came in a little after. We were all musicians and we all wanted to do something. It started as kind of a hob Gainesville at the high dive, we were like, This is what we want to do. Q: If you had to describe each band member in one word, what would they be? A: One word you could say for Tristan would be like, the brain or like cohesive ness. One of those words. Just because he puts everything together. Madeline, you could say chill. Shes really laid back, and everyone loves her style. Taylor is kind of mysterious to other people. To me and the other band members, shes not, but I guess you could see her in that way. Adrian is driven, because he, like, drives the beat. I guess you could say Im imaginative, try ing to come up with new ideas all of the time. Q: What do you have coming up? A: We have a couple shows in august and in September. We have some new music in the works and we have a new music video coming out for August this Wednesday. Flipturn We chatted with Robbie Kingsley, lead singer for The Hails Q: Tell me about what you guys have been up to? A: We played New York, which was huge. We played the lower east side. We played this play called Rockwood Music Hall. That was our big trip. Then after that, we started recording. We recorded three new songs. We did that in July and were going to release those in the fall." Q: You guys had a lot of success with your last single, Younger. What do these new songs look like? A: We approached them with the same thought as Younger, at least production wise. They have that kind of sound, but the songs arent written in the same fashion. They are all three pretty different from each other and from Younger. Theyre cool. They have different vibes, and they dont seem to sound like any particular genre, so I think they have the ability to reach many different types of people." Q: What do you guys have coming up in Gainesville? A: playing at The Wooley downtown. Were playing with Flipturn, King Complex and Arrows in Action. It should be a pretty big show." Q: If you had to describe you guys band as a snack, what would it be? A: Thats tough! Its something refresh ing, but like, old-school at the same time. soning for that. It just sounds really good right now." Q: I know you guys had a lot of success with Younger. How does that success make you feel about moving into the next phase of A: It makes us really hopeful. It gives us a sense of direction too. Weve put out something thats stuck with people. At the same time, its kind of an experiment to see what people like. This is something within our sound. It didnt completely dictate, but it showed us a way to go with how we want ed to do our new stuff. I think youll see similarities in the new stuff. Also, as a band, it gives us a lot of hope for the future. You know, we release it as ourselves completely independently. If we can follow that same formula, it shows us that we dont have to be dependent on anybody." The Hails Courtesy of Flipturn "The biggest thing for me is when people sing along or say, 'Oh, I relate to that.'" Dillon Basse Courtesy of Juliette Davis and Joachim Polack "We are very inspired by the greenery and the nature and the exoticism of (Gainesville)." Juliette Davis Courtesy of The Hails "We've put out something that's stuck with people." Robbie Kingsley


8 ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 THE RESTORATION COMES WHILE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION REPORTEDLY CONSIDERS FURTHER IMMIGRATION MEASURES. By Dana Cassidy Alligator Staff Writer UF Director of the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and associate professor Paul Ortiz has worked with many Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients during his career. He explained that theyre the hard est working students hes had the honor of teaching. The program has really been a godsend both to the students and their families, but also to so ciety, Ortiz said. These are indi viduals in the program who bring skills and insights and experi ences that we desperately need to renew our country both in terms of how we position ourselves and global reality that we live in. The way in which the U.S. courts handle that reality is still uncertain. On Aug. 3, a federal judge ruled that the DACA pro gram must be fully restored. Its a decision that could make its way to the Supreme Court this fall. DACA, a policy created in 2012 that protects undocumented young people from deportation, was originally set to be rescinded by President Donald Trumps ad ministration in September 2017. According to the U.S. Citizen ship and Immigration Services, around 800,000 people have been approved for DACA since its cre ation. In a report from March, it was recorded that there are al most 700,000 active recipients and more than 26,000 pending renewals. Ortiz explained that he was initially shocked, appalled and saddened when the Trump ad ministration decided to revoke DACA protections last year. But he was cautiously optimistic when he heard the recent news of the program being brought back. This is more than just a court decision, Ortiz said. This is something that impacts whether or not some of my students will 10, 15, 20 years. UF Assistant Director of Mul ticultural Affairs Diana Moreno, college student who graduated from UF in 2011, said she isnt celebrating the ruling. She said it isnt the end of the battle for DACA students. As an educator and as some one whos part of the UF commu that this program has improved the lives of students, Moreno said. It has allowed our institution to have access to these students talent, to these students amazing capacities for the academic and professional potential. In the future, Ortiz hopes peo ple will take the time to under stand different cultures and talk to immigrants, perhaps realizing shared commonalities of human interest with them. What Im working for in my life as a teacher and citizen is where we relate to each other as human beings, where we dont status? Ortiz said. Moreno said the students need the backing of the community now more than ever. To any student, faculty or staff at the University of Florida, this is our time as fellow mem bers of the UF community to sup port these students as much as we can, Moreno said. @danacassidy_ UF reacts to judge restoring Obama-era immigration policy Buy One Burger Get One Burger FREE*!with coupon *Of equal or lesser value Not valid with any other coupons or special discounts.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 ALLIGATOR 9 By Courtney Cramer Alligator Staff Writter With nearly 15,000 people joining the Uni versity of Floridas community this upcoming fall, current students want to remind baby ga tors of essential items for the swamp. Mattie Nevis, a UF freshman, lives at the Springs Residential Complex at UF. It was an easy way to meet people, get social before classes even started and make friends with the people youre living with for the rest of the year, she said. The dorm is a smaller space than a usual bedroom in a house or apartment. Nevis rec ommends extra storage space like pull-out bins and cleaning supplies. Cleaning supplies can come in handy for the strangest things, including wasps. We had wasps in our bedroom and our resident as sistant suggested using Windex to get rid of them, Nevis said. Although she eventually moved off cam pus, Senior Courtney Cramer lived on cam suggests an ethernet cable, chargers, reusable water bottles and a small-portable fan. This is not necessary, but for me, I always like having my fairy lights around, because the dorm lighting can be super harsh, the 21-year-old psychology major said. Having different lamps and fairly lights can make it more cozy and fun. For some freshman the thought of having a random roommate is terrifying. However, for both Nevis and Cramer this is the best part of living on campus. My roommate is a random one that Ive never met before, Nevis said. I was nervous about it, but Im really glad I did it because we got along really well. Cramer still keeps in contact with her ran dom roommates even though she has moved off campus, she said. Having random room mates encouraged her to go out and meet Space saver: What you absolutely need for dorm life THE BOUTIQUE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ARTISTS AND CRAFTERS TO CREATE PIECES TO SELL TO THE PUBLIC. By Ashley Mirtyl Alligator Contributing Writer The Collaborative Shoppe, slated to open in September, will offer cre atives and small business owners a collective space to sell and display their products. The new outlet bills itself as a retail boutique, specializing in wellness and community activities, according to its website. Owner Melissa Winko, a 47-yearold veteran, hopes the space will go beyond sales, giving artisans and en trepreneurs opportunities for collab orative work. It will feature a retail boutique and art studios, where craftsmen can work in-house, Winko said. With $4,000 invested and 25 ven dors interested in joining the collec tive, Winko is determined to raise $25,000 through crowdfunding for renovations. Winko said shes had her eye on the abandoned downtown shop at 1305 S. Main St. since June. I wanted to bring the shop to the people so that people dont have to travel to collaborate with like-minded individuals, Winko said. Veronica Mentor, an 18-year-old who frequents open-mike nights throughout Gainesville, said she looks forward to having a collective space where she can share and work on her spoken word. I didnt choose to do consignment because this is my shop just as it is theirs, Winko said. People deserve to get paid for what they create.

Gainesville is home to more than ten Publix stores alone. Heres some insight to help nar row down the search for the perfect store. Publix (Located across from the Krispy Kreme on 13th Street) Accessibility 5/5 Price point 4/5 Shopping experience 4/5 One experience point off because the deli line is too long at all hours of the day, dont even think about waiting there during the lunch rush. Other than that, its a manageable size, making it easy to run through and pick up everything for a week of meals. Look for sale items to bring down your total cost. The best way to get there from campus is to walk, but you can also take buses 8, 10, 29 or 5. Luckys (Located just north of Gainesville High School in the shopping center with Taco Bell) Accessibility 3/5 Price point 3/5 Shopping experience 6/5 There are lots of free samples so you can snack your way through the store. Besides, where else can you drink beer while you shop? It may just be the best way to increase produc tivity on your Sunday funday. Fruits and veg etables are always on sale here, but meats and cheese can get a bit pricey. Downloading their ses 8, 29, 6 and 15 all stop close by. Aldi (Located at the corner of the Butler Plaza shopping center between Lowes and Total Wine? Accessibility 4/5 Price point 5/5 Shopping experience 2/5 The prices are reasonable and the variety here is decent. They carry a lot of generic brands, which can help cut costs. However, the frustration of shopping here starts before you walk in the door. The carts wont move unless you place a quarter into the slot. You need to bring your own bags and pack your items into the bags. The location seems to have few employees working the registers during the week, so lines get long. Honorable Mention Union Street Farmers Market Centrally located in Butler Plaza, its a great reason to visit downtown Gainesville. The market is held every Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Local businesses can be found selling Pro tip: remember to bring cash; the sellers will thank you. Which Gainesville grocery store is right for you? By Layla Soboh Alligator Staff Writer On Aug. 7, I moved out of the dorm Ive been living in for two years. I secretly liked living in a dorm, and I feel a little senti mental leaving it for a house. Once you get past the embarrassment of telling people youre a sophomore living in a dorm, its not too bad. I met the best friends of my life living in Beaty Towers East. You run into people ev erywhere, and there were plenty of events felt like an episode of friends. We formed one big group bonded by our love for the Gators and hatred for the prison cells we cards, talking about spirituality and play ing Never Have I Ever until 5 a.m. some times. There was always someone in our room whether we wanted company or not. dining hall, the Broward pool or Marston time I made friends with the same dedica tion to school as me. High school had not newfound friendships survived the break and carried over into the next year. I know the bonds Ive made will last a lifetime. The second thing I loved about living in a dorm was how convenient it was. It was great to be centrally located on cam pus. I could roll out of bed every day 10 minutes before class. No public transpor tation was needed to get around campus; I could walk everywhere. Once I brought my car up, parking was pretty convenient. As a freshman, I could park a block away. As a sophomore, I could park right behind my dorm. Even the closest apartment com plexes dont compare to being in a dorm. Living in a dorm is like being put into a pressure cooker for maturity. It expe dites the process. When I lived at home, I could yell at family members when they upset me. When you live with strangers, you dont have that freedom because they dont love you unconditionally. I devel oped a level of patience with people that I never had as a teenager. Living in a dorm is a little bit like camping. You have to be tain luxuries. Wasting your precious food storage space with anything but necessi ties. You have to be adaptive. Frankly, this is a lesson that my friends who live in The Standard havent learned. Dont get me wrong, I am overjoyed to be living in a new house with roommates of my choice and my own bathroom. But my time spent in Beaty Towers will always hold a place in my heart. I would recom mend dorm life to anyone starting college who wants to experience a once-in-a-life time opportunity.

But you cant just throw your Starbucks cup from Marston Sci ence Library in the bin and hope for the best. reach and communications coordinator, deemed these kinds of students wishcyclers. The recycling on campus ends up at the same facility the entirety of Alachua County uses. And if the containers on campus are contami nated with non-recyclables, the entire batch Its important to note, though, that con tamination in the recycling system is a very big problem and is often caused by people who are trying to do the right thing, Vitt said. We call this wishcycling when a person puts an item in the recycling bin in the hopes that it will be recycled, even if theyre not sure it can be. If youre unsure whether something can be recycled, Vitt said it is better to throw it away rather than accidentally contaminating the recycling stream. Campus recycling is no different from home recycling, so if you can recycle it at your apartment, you can recycle it on campus. The most common items we see in recy cling bins on campus that cannot be recycled are Starbucks cups: both the clear plastic cups and lids, and the paper coffee cups, Vitt said. Things like soup cans, plastic gallon jugs, soda bottles and cans, juice and milk cartons, glass bottles and jars can all be recycled in containers marked for cans and bottles. Copy board boxes with no food residue or grease, magazines, junk mail, clean brown paper bags, paperback books, and cereal boxes can be re cycled in the paper bins, Vitt said. There are also some recycling secrets that will help you refrain from being a wishcycler. If a recyclable product is needed in Gainesville or Alachua County, a number from one to seven may be marked at the bottom inside of a triangle of three arrows. In order for a local system to accept cer tain plastics, there has to be a market demand for that material, Vitt said. For instance, if a manufacturer makes park benches out of re cycled plastic #5, theyll need to buy the raw plastic bottles and other items with that type of plastic so they can turn them into benches. Daniel Ysaguirre, 20-year-old sus tainability and the built environment junior, said he likes that the different recycling bins on campus are conve niently located next to one another in a row so that students dont have to spend time looking for places to re cycle. I think, whether people choose to recycle or not, its more so on the stu dents themselves to try and put effort into recycling, Ysaguirre said. I think its also a convenience thing. If people are just in a hurry or not really paying attention, theyre just going to throw everything in the trash anyway. A better solution to both throwing things in the trash and recycling them, Vitt said, is to switch to reusable prod ucts and limit single-use materials. She suggested reducing waste by carrying a reusable water bottle, buying bulk items rather than individually packaged goods and bringing a reusable grocery bag while shopping. Making some simple swaps to reusable items like this can drastically cut down the amount of waste you create while also saving you money and frustration, Vitt said. Recy cling is a good last resort, but reducing when ever possible is always going to be the best option. @angdimi Yes, there are actual rules for how to properly recycle at UF ALDI is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

But when they set the mouthwatering plate in front of her, she looked at it and thought, I dont even want this her parents, Jerome and Allison. Shes always had a really healthy appe tite, Jerome said. She eatsa lot. So, I kind of knew something was wrong. Lauren realized she hadnt used the bath room in a while.

While waiting for her mother to arrive for about an hour, the doctors arrived with a ques tion for Lauren. Do you want us to tell you now, or do you want to wait for a family member to be here?

Once at the E.R., she and her daughter anx iously awaited the doctors and a diagnosis. In the room sat Lauren, Allison, Solis and Andrews. Jerome initially decided not to make the trip because he assumed the diagnosis would just be mono or strep or something. I was kinda like, Youre babying her, just leave her alone, Jerome said. It was totally unexpected. A half hour later, surrounded by pale yel low drywall, two curtains, a small yellow-green armchair, a teammate, her athletic trainer and her mother in a cramped cubicle, Lauren heard the unfathomable uttered by her doctor in the Shands Regional Hospital Emergency Room. You have leukemia. There was no warm greeting. No moving to The athletic trainer couldnt handle the news and walked out emotional. Lauren was in denial. It cant be cancer, she said. Its just a disease It didnt really feel real until the next morning. She didnt know what to think. What does it mean? Would she ever play soccer again? Was she even going to live? Nobody said a word. Nobody knew what to say. Is there even a right thing to say? Allison said she believed the silence alarmed Lauren a bit. Nobody reacted so she thought maybe she heard it wrong, Allison said. Lauren was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Acute refers to the fact that it can progress rapidly if not treated and my eloid is indicative of where the cancer begins which is in bone marrow. If not treated quickly, AML will kill you. Lauren was incredulous, still in denial be cause no one in her family had ever been diag nosed with cancer. Its just one of those things where, you know, you hear cancer all the time. Until it happens to somebody that youre close to Allison choked up. Lauren was sent to the ICU because her breathing levels were plummeting. The rapid ly-increasing white blood cells began to spread to her chest and lungs. Doctors connected her to an oxygen tank and cranked it up to the highest setting. She still struggled to breathe. The only option left was to start chemother apy as soon as possible. For Lauren, an 18-year-old who knew little about her disease, chemotherapy is the most fear-inducing, treacherous word out there. Her view of the word soon evolved. It almost became like my friend, she said, like I wanted it. Lauren discovered chemo relieved the ago ny she was experiencing. It helped her breathe again and took away some of cancers costly effects. The treatment had one lasting problem though: her hair. When Lauren woke up with hair on her pil low, her level of stress swelled until, on Christ mas Eve, it popped. She went to the bathroom and just yanked it all out. And when it was out, she immedi ately felt better. But she couldnt wait for it to grow back. Her hair wasnt the only thing distorting her appearance. She lost her eyebrows and eyelashes, and her face puffed too. There was more damage coming. Read the rest of this story online at alligator. org or in next weeks Welcome Back edition.

16 ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 rf By Blake Trauschke Staff Writer Its 10:25 in the morning, and your good life lecture just ended. Having to get up early for that 9:35 messes with your morning routine. And by morning routine I mean your morning bathroom time. The Starbucks you were six minutes late to class for starts knocking around your intestines as soon as you are seven paces out of the lecture hall. Your dorm room is too far away to go to before your next class. Where do you make your offering to the porcelain throne? My lovely assistant, Ryan Klitz, and I went around and checked out and tried a good portion of the bathrooms in undergraduate class room buildings and libraries on UFs main campus. We did not in clude dorms, graduate buildings or saw the bathrooms of 50 buildings, and we have presented the top 10 and bottom 10 buildings here. consistency (to other bathrooms in the building or to the other gender bathroom if there was only one), accessibility (how easily you can many stalls per size of the building) and comfort. We each ranked these categories out of 10 and added our scores together from Ryan covering the mens and myself covering the womens. The overall scores are out of 100. We chose not to do the unisex bathrooms solely based on time. The unisex bathrooms are way better than the other restrooms anyway. This article is in no way bashing the UF cleaning staff. The fact that the grout in the tile is older than their parents is not their fault. Bottom Ten 50. McCarty B Hall (1956)/ 23 points There was no womens bath was a womens, it was in the stair well and not inside the main part of the building like the mens. It was a small, mint green nightmare. Dont stop here. 49. McCarty A Hall (1956)/26 points Hot and had a lot of the same problems as McCarty B. We got stuck here during a classic Gainesville rain storm, and we wanted to be anywhere else. 48. Williamson Hall (1958)/32 points hopeful. As we went up, things went down. There is a cool shower in the unisex bathrooms on the third a stall, urinal, sink and shower and gave off some weird vibes. 47. Weil Hall (1950)/32 points If the building looked so beau tiful on the outside, there is much to be desired inside, especially the bathrooms. The womens room hid ing in some hallways helped this earn the fourth worst bathroom. 46. Matherly Hall (1954)/ 36 points Entering Matherly is like walk ing down the halls of high school. But the confusing part is the gross bathrooms alternate which side of the building its on. The womens the way on the opposite side of the building on the next. Why? I just have to go. 45. Leigh Hall (1927)/36 points Hear me out. The bathrooms are womens, you have to go through an outside hallway through several doors, and then its there? But hey, there is a couch. The mens has all different faucets, though. 44. Turlington Hall (1977)/42 points We all knew Turlington would end up here. The outside lecture hall bathrooms smell of weed. The inside bathrooms never have all the parts working, but they do have a urine scent. Why are you like this? 43. Little Hall (1965)/42 points I walked in on a man with his pants down. The door was open, Klitz said. 42. Library West (1967)/42 points While Ryan and I are both Marston-ers, Wests bathrooms re ally helped solidify us in our claims. Having only three places to empty your tank is a little ridiculous, and theyre always out of something, whether its toilet paper, paper tow els or empty stalls. 41. Sisler Hall (1967)/43 points Terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. UF, this is the place. Top Ten 10. New Physics Building (1998)/71 points There are so many stalls in this bathroom that we thought we were that there are no paper towels, though. 9. Pugh Hall (2008)/73 points I dont know how, but I have had someone throw up in the stall next to me on three separate occasions be fore my 11:45. There is a shower in the unisex bathroom. The large door at the end of the stalls is its own pri vate bathroom. Prime bathroom. 8. New Engineering Building (1997)/73 points These were all just solid bath rooms in the same place with more than plenty of stalls. Fun fact, never forget the bomb threat called into this building in 2016 because a girl didnt want to go to work at the coffee shop inside. 7. Psychology Building (1972)/74 points construction, we both agreed that the faux marble stalls and monowith the foyer area made these bath rooms deserve a place in the top 10. 6. Dauer Hall (1932)/79 points This building is solely in the top wallpaper, plantation shutters, soft decor and pleasant scents make this my favorite bathroom on the entire campus. 5. Fine Arts B (1964)/86 points The Fine Arts area has a midcentury modern look to it that un expectedly doesnt match any of UF. Fine Arts B is a lecture hall that seems to be recently renovated. The bathrooms were large with beautiful countertops. 4. Heavener Hall (2014)/88 points Shiny and new. What more could you ask for? 3. Hernandez Hall (2017)/90 points If you havent seen the new chemistry building, you have to go see it. Tens of millions of dollars went into this building, and the bath 2. Bryan Hall (1914)/91 points Fixtures is what brought Bryan so high up. The lights in the mirrors are so good you will see that you really need to do your brows. It is a quality number two spot. 1 Gerson Hall (2003)/93 points Klitz said. Succinct explanation for this executive latrine. If you would like to see our full spreadsheet of points or have any questions for me or Ryan, please message me on Twitter @ BlakeTrauschke. We ranked bathrooms at UF. Heres our top and bottom ten

(352) 333-0094 Dana Cassidy Alligator Staff Writer Imagine coming home from a long day of classes. Youve walked about a total of 12,000 steps, its boiling hot outside, youre dripping in sweat and most impor tantly, you smell. Lets face it: You need to take a shower. Now, situations like these can be relax ing if not enjoyable for those living in an apartment, but not necessarily for someone living in a dorm. Dorms such as Buckman, Jennings and Murphee, have communal style bathroomsmeaning theres one per thought, as nobody really prefers to show er two feet away from another person. To help you get the hang of bathing in a public restroom, Ive come up with key tips for conquering the fear of communal showers: Tip #1: Wear shoes. Yes, I know. This seems like common sense, but youd be surprised by how many people are unaware of the need for shower shoes in a public restroom. Show ering barefoot can lead to warts, fungus, athletes foot and essentially any gross skin disease one can think of. A simple solution to prevent any of these is to buy yourself a nice pair of water-resilient sandals. Prefer ably ones in a bright color and cute design, so you can at least make the best of the situation Tip #2: Purchase a shower caddy. The holy grail of all shower equipment is a shower caddy. This beautiful mecha nism is engineered to hold all of your toi letries no matter how big or small. This caddy will be handy whenever you want to grab your necessary items and hop in the shower. It comes in mesh, plastic, and even rubber material. This item is a life saver, trust me. Tip #3: Try to shower when its not busy. The key to retaining the majority of the hot water is to shower when nobody else is. The prime times to do this are early in the morning (around 8 a.m.), noon and af ter 10 p.m. If these times arent personally busy times for bathing. Tip #4: Play music using your phone or a speaker. nitely makes a difference. Having music playing in the showers will improve your experience and possibly allow you to meet a new friend. As long as your music isnt trash, everyone else will enjoy having background noise in the typically bleak communal area. Tip #5: Pick up after yourself. This should be an unspoken concept, but sadly the majority of people have not learned this lesson. Please pick up your hair, toiletry lids, cotton swabs, etc. and place them in the TRASH where they be Tip #6: Dont overstress it and just accept your situation. Theres no avoiding taking a shower in college, so the best tip I can give you is to muster up and get used to sharing a bathroom with 30 other students. After a week, itll feel like a typical routine. Itll also make you appreciate your shower back home. @danacassidy_ Dealing with shared showers Emma McAvoy Avenue Staff Writer 1.

Luckily, UF offers a few study halls and libraries, such as Newell Hall, that are open 24 with friends is the best way to go because you will have a support system of people who are struggling just as much as you. 2. Dont take your time for granted. Four years seems like a long time but I guar antee you it goes by in the blink of an eye. I am only going to be a Sophomore and have already been confronted with that scary reality that I good, the bad, and the ugly because youll look back and laugh at it all one day. Who you are now is not who you will be next year, so live in the moment and take life by the reigns! You never know what can happen. 3. Enjoy your life You have classes, organizations, friends, a so cial life and, of course, a need to take care of yourself. Needless to say, it can be a lot to jug gle. School is important, yes, but as a freshman you take some of your easiest courses.. One thing I regret from my freshman year is that I was not spontaneous at all. While planning is important, you must allow room for lifes reason people look back on their college years as some of the best times of their life, so make some memories! 4. Balance work and play Enjoy your life, but not at the expense of your education. While college is this fantastic time of exploration, it is also a time to learn and grow from doing what you love. My best advice would be to get as ahead as possible on assign ments so you can go out on the weekends or take spontaneous trips to the springs. You will come to realize that a balance is going to do wonders for your physical and mental health. 5. It is okay to fact, its recom mended A huge part of adulting is failure. Accept that you will fail at something, at some pot in your college career. It may be a class, it may be a relationship or friendship, it may be losing a job or internship. Whatever the case may be, you have to think of these failures as lessons rather than insurmountable obstacles that will wreck your life. 6. Dont worry so much. Everything will work out in the end. There will be times when you feel like the work wont end and you cant do it all. Even if you cant get it all done, you will be just when you just have to say screw it, lets wing it, which is okay! Really, it is okay to not have your life together. So many kids, myself included, come into college under the impression that adulthood equals having it messy and chaotic, and half the time you dont know what youre doing. 7. Dont search for opportunities, cre ate them. I cannot stress enough the importance of love, so get out there and do it! Join clubs, apply for research and/or intern positions, stack up that resume, but most importantly, do what is going to help you succeed and add Things to know as a freshman

20 ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 Tranelle Maner Avenue Staff Writer In a small college town like Gainesville, its hard to imagine eating anywhere other than chain restaurants. To the surprise of many new students, as soon as you get into the city, residents will recommend great lo cal restaurants. However, youll notice over time that the same few restaurants get rec ommended and hyped up by people just be cause multiple people go there. There are a few restaurants that dont need the giant fan club they have and there are a few that need more support. OVERHYPED Reggae Shack This restaurant is known as the best Jamaican food restaurants in Gainesville. There are constant commercials for it run ning on TV, and that promotion coupled with word-of-mouth lead you to believe it will be the best place youll ever eat. How ever, anyone from the Caribbean or of Carib bean descent will tell you a different story. home about. Blaze Pizza If youve gone down Archer Road then you probably saw a large line coming from this tiny pizza place. Blaze Pizza allows you to order one of their specialty pizzas or cre ate a personal pie of your own. While this place gets a lot of bonus points for the cre ative and personal aspect, its rare that any one really raves about the taste. This place is good, but not really worth more than the 15 to 20 minute wait that has become the norm. Mi Apa Similar to Reggae Shack, this restaurant prides itself on presenting meals that are au here isnt bad, but many people of Latin de scent have said how far from authentic their food is compared to homestyle cooking. HYPE-WORTHY Gumbys Pizza This Gainesville staple serves up delicious pizza in huge slices at great prices. Gumbys has a wide selection of their own specialty pizzas while also allowing you to custom ize your own pie. What makes it even better is that you dont always have to come in to taste the deliciousness because Gumbys de livers.The home of the original pokey stick should be at the top of your list to try. Grill Fresh For those who like a healthier alterna tive when eating out, Grill Fresh provides a great-tasting clean and organic option. What really takes this place over the top are the homemade sauces that they provide to top your bowls of protein, veggies and starch. Flacos This is best place for late-night eats after a night out on the town. The food is deli cious and served quickly. Flacos serves up delicious Cuban food that will curb all your nighttime cravings with both midtown and downtown locations. The Hyppo Hyppo has a few locations across Florida but is home to St. Augustine. The gourmet popsicle shop is known for using all-natural combinations like Raspberry Lemonade to the most unorthodox spices like Red Chili Cantaloupe. If youre looking for dessert that is different from anywhere else, this is the place to be.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 ALLIGATOR 23 By Charlie Daffron Alligator Staff Writer Gainesville isnt just a college town, it also happens to have one of the best music scenes in the state of Florida. Music lovers starting at UF in the fall wont be disappointed. In addition to being home to a large array of great local acts, Gainesville also hosts all sorts national and international touring bands. It doesnt matter what your taste in music is, theres always a little something for everyone. The Atlantic Are you a fan of sweaty, chaotic hardcore shows? Or is a night of catchy indie rock more your speed? Maybe some upbeat, energetic folk music? You want it, The Atlantics got it! Conveniently located at 15 N. Main St. in the center of downtown Gainesville, The Atlantic hosts all sorts of bands and has shows every week. They also host theme nights like pop punk/emo night, goth night and 90s night every month. Each night has DJs or live cover bands playing all your favorite songs from that genre or era. High Dive Located at 210 SW 2nd Ave., High Dive is a popular spot for both local and touring bands alike. Over the years, theyve hosted leg ends like Dan Andriano of Alkaline Trio, Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan, legendary director/comedian Kev in Smith. With shows almost every night of the week, theres always something to check out at High Dive. High Dive also hosts monthly food truck rallies for Gainesville residents of all ages with free mu sic from local bands inside. The Hardback Caf Located at 211 W. University Ave., The Hardback is a classic Gainesville staple. The Hardback hosts shows every week including everything from DIY punk, to hip hop to art shows with live acous tic music. With a capacity of only 160 people, shows at The Hardback have a unique, intimate feeling, al lowing you to get up close and per sonal with your favorite musicians. Tired of listening to the music? Just head upstairs to the bar and play a few games of Super Smash Bros. Shows at The Hardback are also cheap! Cover for a show is generally $5-$7, meaning most broke college students can afford to come out to a show and have a great night. Looseys Located across the street from High Dive at 120 SW 1st Ave., Looseys is another great spot to catch a show. Looseys is also a restaurant and bar, so you can grab some food and drinks before the bands start. Looseys tends to host mostly punk bands, even legends like Face to Face and Strung Out, but you never know who might take the stage. They also host all sorts of fun events like karaoke and trivia night. Either way, if you go to Looseys, youre in for a great time. The Wooly Located right across the street from The Atlantic at 20 N. Main St, The Wooly is another great place to catch a show. They dont have shows as frequently as some of the other venues in Gainesville, but what they lack in quantity they make up for in quality. This year alone, The Wooly has hosted all sorts of great acts, including KRSOne, Guided by Voices, AJJ and Screaming Females. The Wooly also hosts a variety of great nonmusic related events, including documentary screenings and story telling events. The Civic Media Center Possibly one of the most unique spots to catch a show, The Civic Media Center is combination li cert space. Located at 433 S. Main St., The CMC hosts events several times during the week. They have an indoor stage and an outdoor stage, which allows them to in corporate other mediums of per formance along with live music. Sometimes in between sets on the outdoor stage there will be live painting, slam poetry and stand-up comedy on the inside stage. Bands of all genres have frequented the stage of The CMC. In addition to shows, The CMC also hosts events for local political activist groups, movie screenings and zine making workshops. The six best venues in Gainesville to catch a show Charlie Daffron / Alligator Staff Looseys has an intimate listening environment for punk rock bands.

Lindsey Breneman Avenue Staff Writer I woke up to an insatiable itch on the inside of my elbow. Slow ly, my ears tuned in to the steady metronomic beeps coming from behind me. The fabric against my skin was scratchy and foreign and covering some sticky substance on my chest. I began to open my 10 pound eyelids. white sterile surroundings. A sharp pain seemed to strike my head and dissipate into a pounding from the inside. My brain seemed to be functioning in slow motion. When my eyes adjusted to the excruciating light around me I real ized I was in a hospital bed. The itch was from the tape used to hold in my IV which was pump ing a steady stream of cool liquid into my arm. The beeping was the heart rate monitor. I had little sticky squares stuck to my chest. I was in only a hospital gown, cov ered by a thin sheet. The pace of the beeps started to increase tenfold. Beneath the for inside my chest. I felt hot bile rising in my throat. Not again. The only coherent thought cycling through my mind. The only other time I had been mandated to a hospital overnight was my senior year of high school for being suicidal. It was one of the most terrifying moments of my life. Binge drinking is a rite of pas sage in college culture. Alcohol poisoning is often treated noncha lantly. But with a 0.326 blood alcohol level, it was impossible to dissoci ate my consumption from my men tal health. I was forced to reckon with the fact I could either seek help or end up dead. When you leave high school, its tempting to believe a new en vironment will make you a new person. That any old baggage can be left in your hometown. Its not true. When you enter this new un known you carry your experiences from your past with you. Theres no such thing as a clean slate. No one here is going to tell you what to eat or when. No one will police your sleep. No one will make you take any medication. If you want to drink your weight everyday, you can. If you want to experiment with every drug, theyre available. If you want to wake up in someone elses bed ev ery morning, you can probably pull it off. Going wild is fun until its not: until you wake up in a hospital bed. If you are entering UF with any diagnosed mental health concern, register with the Disability Re source Center. If you never have a problem in your entire college ca reer, you never need to use it. Most at some point or another though. Having accommodations from the DRC in your back pocket can come in handy in during moments when you have no idea what else to do. The DRC also provides plenty of workshops to help registered stu Find groups. Get involved. No guaranteeing there is a group on campus doing something youre interested in. Try new things. Meet people. Then, go a step further and actually connect with those people. Surround yourself with people who will lift you up. You will meet description. Its okay to let them go. If a relationship does not serve you, get out of it. Consider setting up profes sional help. Even if youre feeling Counseling and Wellness Center, or a therapist or psychiatrist in the community, makes rough times much less stressful. The CWC has individual and group counseling. It also facilitates workshops. GatorWell provides wellness coaching. It could be an easy way to set yourself up for success from the jump. Dont underrate the importance of the basics. Eat healthy. Sleep. Exercise. Theyre simplistic and ob vious, but ignoring them can be a College is exciting. Its a chance how you want to spend your life. If you can, let go of the expecta tions that dont serve you. You are an adult. You get to decide where you go from here. Inevitably, youll fall apart at some point. Life is stressful. Start building a net now, that way you dont have to fall so far when you do. STILL ALIVE, BARELY BREATHING : A mental health story

Follow us for updates For updates on UF athletics, follow us on Twitter at @alligatorSports or online at WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2018 VOLLEYBALL By Mari Faiello Sports Writer About eight months ago, the Florida volleyball team fell to the Nebraska Huskers in the NCAA Championship match. But despite the heartbreak the team experienced on Dec. 16, there were a lot of positives that came out of the 2017-18 season. A 30-2 (17-1 SEC) record and the graduation of four All-Americans is nothing to dismiss. But that was all last season. The only time the Gators might be brought back to that heartwrenching moment from last season is when the team watches banner in Bob Devaney Sports Center in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Aug. 24, where both teams will 2018. But after the banner is hung in begins. There can be no more living in the past, and coach Mary Wise said theyll just have to trust the process. Were in new territory, she said. Weve never graduated four All-Americans. Its wont be hard to notice the absence of mainstays like Rhamat Alhassan, Carli Snyder, Caroline Knop and Shainah Joseph. But the graduation of the four seniors brings in new opportunities for the program to grow further. Seven new players will join Floridas roster this season four incoming freshmen, two walk-ons and one North Carolina sophomore transfer. Thayer Hall, a freshman outside hitter, said her experience so far at Florida has been nothing but sur real. The 18-year-old from Spartan burg, South Carolina, was joined by fellow freshman and middle blocker Lauren Dooley in January, just in time for spring training. The duo agreed that by start ing before summer, it was the best choice they could have made be cause it gave them time to adjust before the fall season was com pletely underway. Wise agreed. Were so fortunate they both came in January, she said. The coach said that training in the spring takes on a different look than it does in the fall. The pace is slower and skills are broken down into their most basic parts instead of focusing on upcoming matches, Wise said. Dooley, a 6-foot-6 middle blocker from Plano, Texas, will present unique challenges to teams throughout the season because of her size, Wise said. Shes so high above the net, Wise said. Its something you just dont see in the womens game and that physical. On the other hand, Dooleys spring counterpart, Hall, will present other hurdles for opponents this season. Were going to ask a huge load of her, Wise said. It would have been a shock to her system had she come in the summer. Halls summer was busy in more ways than one. In addition to team camps and training, she traveled to Los Angeles, California, Female High School Athlete of the Year award. With the Dorman High School Cavaliers, Hall led her team to a 43-6-1 record and the Class 5A state championship for the 201718 season. She logged 638 kills, 361 digs and 36 blocks during her senior year and won the Gatorade Volleyball Player of the Year award. Moving on from her high school career and into a new season of Florida volleyball enters new territory for 2018 season Y es, the time has come to make a pre diction. The Florida Gators are blessed seven home games and only four true road trips in 2018. With one of the SECs most favorable schedules, UF could maybe make a run at 10 wins despite not having a clear-cut favorite to play quar terback. Gators can reach this mark, thatll be rather positive. However, its not going to be pretty getting there. Despite being just a couple weeks into fall camp, it already appears itll be a tough season for the Gators offensively during their Co-offensive coordinator and wide days of camp that the retention level for the team needs to get better. Quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson and Mullen have both voiced high hopes for what red shirt sophomore quarterbacks Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask and freshman Emory Jones could do next season, but they also ex pressed 2018 will be a work in progress for the signal callers. UF needs to rely on its rushing attack. Jordan Scarlett, whos returning from a suspension spanning the 2017 campaign. But success in the running game will be determined by the play of the offensive line, a unit that struggled the previous three seasons under Jim McElwain. Luckily for Florida, a cushy schedule should allow the starting quarterback, whoever that may be, to ease into Mullens system. UF will play only one Power Five team in its non-conference slate: Florida State in Tallahassee Home games against Charleston Southern on Sept. 1, Colorado State on Sept. 15 and Idaho on Nov. 17 should be easy wins, as the Gators have much superior athletes. The matchup against the Seminoles on Nov. 24 should be close since FSU will also be under a new coach in Willie Taggart. However, junior quarterback Deondre Francois and sophomore running back Cam Akers are two of the best in the country at their positions, and theyll make this the Gators toughest road game of the season. Theyre talents superior to anyone on Florida, so Florida State should win this matchup. Its always nice for Florida when it doesnt have to play Auburn or Alabama in the regular, but its sun shines even brighter in Gainesville when they avoid both in addition to Jimbo Fishers Texas A&M. UF: at Mississippi State on Sept. 29, at home against LSU on Oct. 6, in Jacksonville against Georgia on Oct. 27. I think the Gators drop all three. Yes, Mullen coached Mississippi State for nine years and knows them inside and out. However, the Bulldogs, unlike Florida, have PREDICTION: Gators football team will ride easy schedule to eight wins Mark My Words / Opinion Mark Stine Twitter: @mstinejr Alligator File Photo The Gators welcome six freshmen and a transfer from North Carolina for the 2018 season.

I felt like my heart was always here, she said. Among Hall and Dooley are freshmen setter Marlie Mon serez, the younger sister of redshirt senior setter Allie Mon serez, and right side hitter Haley Warner; walk-on defensive specialists/liberos Riley Fischer and Paula Cerame and ride side hitter/setter Holly Carlton, a redshirt sophomore transfer from UNC Wise, entering her 28th season with the Gators, said this years team has a new look and will be a shift from last season, a squad which was heavily led by its senior leadership. Its not just the talent that graduates, its the experience, Wise said. Theres no substitute for experience. Wise is particularly excited about the addition of Carlton, who enters the season as a left-handed attacker and setter at 6-foot-7. The veteran coach says the program plans on using Carl tons talent from a more offensive approach and likes having Wise, who has led the Gators to 23 regular-season SEC Championships, is also looking forward to the teams tougher schedule. This fall, the team will face No. 2 Nebraska, No. 3 season play. Were just throwing them into the deep end, Wise said. We are not tip-toeing into this season. Florida volleyball kicks off their 2018-19 season with the Orange vs. Blue match Saturday, Aug. 18 at the OConnell Cen ter at 2 p.m. @faiello_mari an established quarterback in Nick Fitzgerald, who gets to welcome his former coach back to Starkville. Advantage MSU. The October matchup with the Tigers is more of a toss up. LSU comes off a two-game homestand while UF returns home after two-straight road trips. Both teams will run the ball and play physical defense, I just think LSU will be the more fresh side, physically. The Worlds Largest Cocktail Party will be all Georgia once again. Led by returning starting quar terback Jake Fromm, the reigning SEC champs also boast one of the SECs easiest schedules and should come into Jacksonville heavily favored. The Bulldogs win big despite the Gators coming off their bye week. If Mullens squad can pull of victory in one of the above games, it would show quite the progression for the young team. But matchups at Tennessee on Sept. 22, at Vander bilt on Oct. 13 and at home against Missouri on Nov. 3 should be ones where UF is favored. Watch out for Kentucky and South Carolina. A Week 2 collision with the Wildcats will not be easy. UF barely escaped with a win in Lexington a season ago to maintain its 31-game win streak over Kentucky, the longest active win streak over one op ponent in college football. UK enters its sixth season under Mark Stoops. A victory over the Gators could launch Kentucky into a new era, and a loss could put South Carolina and former UF coach Will Mus champ wont travel to Gainesville until Nov. 10. The Gamecocks put up 245 rushing yards on a bangedup Florida side last season. Quarterback Jake Bentley threw three picks in the 28-20 win. However, look for a better performance from the junior quarterback this year. UF should be preseason favorites in both of these games, and I think theyll take both. The streak over UK will move to 32, and Gators narrowly defeat South Carolina by three points or less. @mstinejr Carlton is a 6-foot-7 transfer from UNC Bubly Invitational Gainesville, Florida Aug. 31 7 p.m. vs. No. 10 Southern California Sept. 1 5 p.m. vs. Louisville Sept. 2 3:30 p.m. vs. UCF Lumberjack Invitational Flagstaff, Arizona Sept. 7, 12:30 p.m. vs. California State University, Northridge Sept. 7 10 p.m. vs. Northern Arizona Sept. 8 Noon vs. Southern Illinois Florida State Tallahassee, Florida Sept. 12 6 p.m. VOLLEYBALL, from pg. 28 COLUMN, from pg. 28 Vert Challenge Lincoln, Nebraska Aug. 24 7 p.m. vs. No. 2 Nebraska Aug. 25 4:30 p.m. vs. No. 3 Texas UF volleyball schedule through Sept. 12
