For the high school graduates are enrolled in college than that of white graduates, according to the Pew Research Center. Using U.S. Census Bureau data, the center reported 49 percent of young Hispanic high school graduates were enrolled in college in 2012 compared to 47 percent of white non-Hispanic graduates. Despite a drop in overall college enrollment in 2012, the number of Hispanic students in college continued to rise. UF seems to be following the trend, with a steady increase of Hispanic and Latino students over the past 10 years. The enrollment of Hispanic and Latino students at UF for 20122013 was 17.36 percent, according to Olivia Garcia, the director of the Institute of Hispanic-Latino Cultures. Garcia said this number has increased from about 14 to 16 percent in previous years. I think there is a lot of selfselection bias, she said. The term Hispanic is somewhat broad in general. Garcia said she thinks more Hispanic students are seeking higher education. She said both population growth and a change in the attitude of Hispanic and Latino cultures are Hispanic college enrollment on the rise SEAN STEWART-MUNIZ Alligator Staff Writersstewart-muniz@alligator.orgPlans for a new UF presidents house are in the works after a $3.5 million donation to the project.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 9/30/13 LIFESTYLE ELIZABETH BROWNAlligator Contributing WriterAlex Payne said he stood shocked and upset when he saw a hardly eaten burger being thrown away at the Fresh Food Company. The 19-year-old industrial and systems engineering freshman said thats not the only time he has seen large amounts of food go to waste at dining halls. But the issue stretches far beyond UFs campus. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations released a study last week reporting that one-third of the worlds food goes to waste. According to the study, food waste takes a toll on the economy, with annual losses of $750 billion. Jeffrey Brecht, a UF horticultural sciences professor, said portion sizes contribute to food waste, and restaurants serve more food to consumers because of competition with other businesses, particularly in the U.S. We have such abundant food, he said. We can afford to throw it away. He said people should be given smaller portions but told they can have more, and students should buy less food but shop more frequently to avoid waste. People need to plan better, he said. Buy just what you need. The study found food waste not only hurts the economy, but it also has detrimental effects on the environment. Wasted food is the third-largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. But some familiar eating spots are taking action. Caitanya Long, vice president at the Krishna House, said the group does not waste any food. She said leftover food is donated to organizations such as the St. Francis House and the Salvation Army, and some food goes to feed animals. Were reducing waste from the start to the end, she said. Payne said though hes not immune to letting bits of food go to the trash, he does make an effort to avoid throwing it away. on my plate, he said.Study: One-third of food is wasted Buy just what you need.Jeffrey Brechthorticultural sciences professor ITS FROM 5 TO 6 P.M. IN THE REITZ GRAND BALLROOM. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Staff Writercwright@alligator.orgStudent Government has found a way to make its multimillion dollar budget more digestible to students. Senate Budget and Appropriations Chairman Joseph Michaels founded E-nitiative, a three-step plan aiming to educate, elevate and empower students in the budgeting process. within E-nitiative is Speed Budgeting, held in the Grand Ballroom of the Reitz Union from 5 to 6 p.m. today. The meeting will include how to create a budget disk to get on the SG and understand the 5 percent cut to the Michaels also created SG brochures and a cartoon presentation for easier understanding. This year, SG banked an activity and service fee budget of $18,992,000. That money stems from the activity and service fee, which is $17.35, for every enrolled credit hour. This money is divided among recreational sports, student activities and involvement, the Reitz Union and SG for allocation to student organizations. Student Body Treasurer Jayce Victor saw an opportunity in collaborating with Michaels. As part of his platform when he campaigned in Spring, Victor worked to hold town hall meetings for student groups to increase transparency. Part of holding myself accountable is knowing where the money is going, he said. On Sunday, the second town hall meeting, the Student Government Forum, will be held in the Rion Ballroom from 8 to 9:30 p.m. Students will be able to voice their concerns and offer feedback to SG. Student Body President Christina Bonarrigo and Senate President Lauren Verno will lead the forum.SG to teach budget process


BILLY JEAN LOUIS Alligator Contributing WriterFlorida teachers dont get paid well, said former congresswoman Pat Schroeder. Some even qualify for food stamps. A woman who once ran for president and spent 24 years as a U.S. representative for Colorado, Schroeder spoke to about 200 people on Monday at the Buddy & Anne MacKay Auditorium. She said the federal government does not contribute enough money to education it spends 6 percent of its money on education in each state. This is critical in our society, she said. Schroeder, a Democrat, spent 14 years as a U.S. representative, according to Politico. She considered running for president in 1987, but withdrew from the campaign because of a lack of funds and returned to the House of Representatives for another decade, according to a biography by Joan A. Lowy. When asked how she would handle Floridas educational programs if she were president, she said she would create more high-tech jobs. Despite politics being a mess, Schroeder said young adults can make a change. Young adults have to pay attention to local, state and federal elections, her husband James said. If there is an issue in their community, he encouraged them to act and call their state representatives instead of doing nothing. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013Kan Li / Alligator StaffFormer U.S. Representative Patricia Schroeder speaks to about 200 people at the Buddy & Anne MacKay Auditorium on Monday evening.

OneRepublic coming to UF Oct. 10 as part of anti-smoking tour LAWRENCE CHANAlligator Contributing WriterSummer 2013 was the coolest since 2009, according to the National Climatic Data Center August 2013 Climate Report. The average temperature in the U.S. from June to August was 72.6 degrees Fahrenheit, making it the mildest summer in the past four years, according to the data. Florida bucked the national cooldown trend in 2013, surpassing last summers average temperature by 0.3 degrees. This years 81.2 degrees Fahrenheit was still cooler than summer 2010 and 2011, which hold the record for the hottest Florida summers since 1998. Jeff Huffman, WRUF-TV Meteorologist, wrote in an email that the summer 2013 temperature in Gainesville was one degree cooler than Gainesvilles average summer temperature over the past 30 years. Huffman said the cooler temperature can be attributed to Gainesvilles above-average rainfall. July 2013 was Gainesvilles rainiest ever. Florida had a total of 29.95 total inches of rain this summer. On a national level, the weather is cooler due to a blocking pattern in the north Atlantic, Huffman said. It forces the jet stream, a river of air that steers weather systems, unusually far to the south. Without the jet stream to protect it, cold fronts can surge deep into the U.S. for much of the summer season, Huffman said. Huffman said the cooler summer is unlikely to foreshadow cooler weather in fall or winter. Weather patterns, such as what caused the cooler summer in the Eastern U.S., are always longer time period. Alize Trinquet, a 20-year-old UF criminology and anthropology junior, said she had no idea it was even cooler outside.

KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterA Newberry woman was arrested early Monday after she chased her boyfriend and his ex-girlfriend to a gas station and threw food items at them. Marqusia Antwanette Ross, 23, was arguing with Demeatrice Desean Holmes, her boyfriend of two years, because he wanted to leave the house to go play cards, according to an door of the house, and she smashed a couple of the windows. Holmes called his ex-girlfriend Destiny Carter to come pick him up, and the two left in a gray Nissan, according to the report. Ross got into her green Honda and started driving after them, and she brought her two children along. She pursued the Nissan from the La Crosse area through Alachua and onto I-75 South, according to the report. Holmes and Carter stopped off at the Kangaroo gas station, located at 9303 NW 39th Ave., to call police. When Ross chased them inside on foot carrying one of her children, they ran behind the Subway sandwich counter, according to the report. Ross grabbed bags of chips and a metal can opener and threw them at Holmes and Carter, according to the report. Holmes then went outside the store, and Ross followed, throwing a plastic bottle full of soda at him. Deputies arrested her on charges of child abuse without great harm and assault with intent to commit a felony. She was taken to the Alachua County Jail, and she was later released.Newberry woman throws chips at boyfriendTeamMate will be openerA smaller percentage of Hispanic students are earning degreesreasons for the increase. Even though the number of Hispanic students at UF has increased, Garcia said it still isnt enough. Its not completely representational when we look at the state population, she said. Although more Hispanic students are entering college, a smaller percentage is actually earning bachelors degrees compared to white students, according to Pew Research Center. Solansh Hernandez, a 20-year-old business and psychology junior, has seen Hispanic students and her own family struggle to get through college. I have a couple of family members who couldnt keep up with the material because they couldnt fully understand English, she said. Hernandez herself has dealt with language barriers and discrimination based on her accent. Born in Cuba, she moved to the United States as a child to get a better education. But Hernandez still feels like a minority at a predominantly white Hispanic-Latino Cultures has been a key to her success at UF. Its been a home away from home for me, she said.

KRISHNA HOUSE PAID FIVE NON-MEMBERS TO WASH PLATES. NIKO PIFFERETTIAlligator Contributing WriterReusable metal or plastic utensils can be a cheaper alternative to disposable ones, in theory. But Krishna House learned that it wasnt the case when it introduced metal dishes and utensils to Krishna Lunch. It now serves its vegan meals only on paper plates. Responding to rising food pricculated that metal plates would be cheaper than paper plates, all else being equal, said Caitanya Long, a Hare Krishna devotee. All else was not equal, however.

Replacing lost dishes, cups and cutlery might cost more than theyre worth, Marie Urmano, 19, said. It seems like sustainability and the economy are always at odds, the UF digital arts and sciences freshman said. Not so, said Leslie Paul Thiele, director of sustainability studies in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Sustainability is said to be built on a three-legged stool, he said. One is environmental health, one is social welfare and one is economic viability. For something to be sustainable, it has to be economically viable.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7On Sept. 17, 1787 the Constitution of the United States was signed by 38 delegates during the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. This document outlined how the new country would form its federal government after the Articles of the Confederation failed. The framers set up the Constitution so that each branch would have its own functions and its own power. Through checks and balances, the branches engage in citizen. As the country changes, the Constitution also changes. The framers knew that the law of the land must change with the country. many Americans have fought for. The original intention of the document still remains the same the government must protect the rights of the people. The framers believed our rights came from God, and our freedom comes from the Constitution. More than 200 years later, our country still stands. It has endured two world wars, a crippling civil war and countless events that tested the will and resolve of the American people. I am of the belief that America is an exceptional country. Yes, we have the strongest military and the most powerful economy but that is not what makes this country special. Freedom is what makes this country great. It is far too easy as a nation to get on our high horse and look down our noses at other countries and cultures. There is no doubt our country is the strongest power in the world, but that does not mean we are an invincible nation. We must not take our rights and liberty for granted. The words of Thomas Jefferson still ring true today: The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. The things we take for granted continue to be paid with On Constitution Day, it is important to remember the members of our armed forces who have taken the pledge to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. That is one of the reasons why we should not take our liberty lightly. The countrys power comes from its propensity and capacity to change. It is unbelievable to think how different we are as a nation now from 200 years ago. In the past, we fought for independence, civil rights and the other problems gripping our nation. We still have more problems to solve, but we know that we have the ability to solve them together. Our country is the most diverse and stable democracy in the world. For that reason we should be proud. Our freedoms and constitutionally granted powers enthe battle for freedoms can be won. We are a special group of people, and we participate in this grand democratic experiment. Despite the fact that our ancestors came from different and diverse faraway countries, we still collectively call ourselves Americans. This bond inspires hope. In times of trouble we come together as a nation. In times of great distress the Challenger disaster, the Oklahoma City bombings and 9/11, to name a few our exceptionalism shines. People of different faiths, creeds and colors always come together and make sure that the country becomes stronger than ever. On this day, it is important to realize how fortunate we are to live in a country where we have inalienable rights and freedom. Despite all the problems we have yet to face, I believe we are still A City upon a Hill. I am still and forever will be proud to call myself an American. The Constitution makes our country strong. Our freedom makes us exceptional. We make the world hope. Michael Beato is a UF economics sophomore.

This is one of the most successful donation drives sponsored on behalf of my uncle, and my family couldnt be more grateful and honored by not only the students willingness to help organize the event, but also by their eagerness to register with the touches so many families. It is truly a humbling feeling. While I havent been able to come back to Gainesville as often as I would like, Im pleased to see that our students remain exceptional. Go Gators!

RATES DROPPED BY 40 PERCENT. KRISTAN WIGGINSAlligator Staff Writerkwiggins@alligator.orgRemarriages are down, and shacking up could go up across the U.S. A recent analysis of federal data conducted by the National Center For Family & Marriage Research showed that between 1990 and 2011, remarriage rates dropped by 40 percent. Remarriage by divorced or widowed people now occurs at a rate of about 2.9 percent, down from 5 percent. This change could be due to couples feeling less pressure to marry, said UF sociology professor Tanya Korepeckyj-Cox. She said the data shift shows how the country has changed in terms of values and stigmas. There are more options for people, so its become easier and more straightforward for people to live on their own, she said. So, there isnt a pressure to get remarried. And depending on their prior experience, they may be hesitant to get into another marriage. Younger age groups had the most dramatic change, with the rate dropping about 54 percent in the last two decades. For divorced or widowed people who have found a new partner, Korepeckyj-Cox said many may be choosing to take the commitment just as far as living together. In the past, this wasnt the case with a more religious culture deeming cohabitation as living in sin. Not only is it not a stigma, but its become pretty widely accepted that people can live with a partner without getting married, she said. Korepeckyj-Cox said living together is usually a step toward marriage, though for a small group, it will be the only step toward lifelong commitment. For Kyle Smierciak, a 28-yearold Santa Fe accounting sophothe choice to move in together was a no-brainer. works best for both of you so you both feel comfortable, he said. When youre married, theres no getting out unless you go through divorce. Involving children can complicate the marriage situation, said Korepeckyj-Cox. Danielle Boykin, a married 20-year-old Santa Fe psychology sophomore, agreed. She and Smierciak said their by their parents relationships. I didnt want to get married multiple times, Boykin said, So I feel like I considered it very heavily. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 Megan Reeves / AlligatorUF journalism alumnus Cody Jones, 25, holds hands with his wife, Lacey, a 23-year-old UF public relations alumna. A recent study suggests remarriage rates are declining as couples choose to live together. VALERIE CRUMAlligator Contributing WriterA new supplement set to hit college campuses is being marketed as a legal replacement for illegal prescription drug use. Described as a brain supplement, Cerebral Success advertises six hours of naturally enhanced cognitive function an alternative to the prescription stimulants students often take in an attempt to study. Cerebral Success gives you focus and energy, but in addition, it gives you heightened the form of Omega-3 DHA and antioxidants, said CEO Trevor Hiltbrand. In a recent survey conducted by UF and Washington University in St. Louis, two-thirds of people surveyed reported they believed the use of prescription stimulants is a moderate-tolarge problem among young adults. The report found nearly 12 percent of the surveyed group had diverted medication either by supplying others with stimulants or by taking someone elses medications. UF epidemiology Ph.D. student Sonam Lasopa co-authored the study. These drugs are to be used under supervision of a medical professional and are intended for use in those with [attention] problems, Lasopa wrote in an email. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the unauthorized use of prescription stimulants including Adderall, Ritalin and Concerta can lead to an increase in blood pressure and heart rate as well as a decrease in sleep and appetite. Repeated use can lead to cardiovascular concerns and addiction. But 19-year-old UF public relations sophomore Josh Ferrari understands the lingering attraction to stimulants. Students put a lot on the line to have a successful run in college, so I dont doubt that a lot of people use them to help them focus, Ferrari said. If there was a legal alternative, I would probably want to try it. Hiltbrand, who graduated from Brigham Young University in 2011, began developing the alternative supplement for himself while in college. I always struggled to focus on studying, so I started trying to mix different natural supplements. People started to notice and would come knocking on my door asking for some, Hiltbrand said. That was when I knew I had a product. Hiltbrand recently began raising funds through Indiegogo to take the product, which can now be found online, to physical east-coast university towns. The amount of money raised will determine how soon UF students see Cerebral Success in stores near campus. Hiltbrand also recommends that when taking his product, students stay hydrated and maintain recommended levels of nutrients.Supplement looks to replace illegal study aid drugsLIFESTYLERemarriage rates down nationally

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 SWIMMING LOGAN MCGUIRE Alligator Writer@loganjmcguire Entering the 2013-14 season, coach Gregg Troy has one of the most impressive Florida teams to date. UF lost just two scoring swimmers from last years NCAA Championships, making for an easy transition. Florida returns 11 All-Americans on the mens team, including Olympians Marcin Cieslak and Sebastien Rousseau, senior Brad deBorde and juniors Dan Wallace and Eduardo SolaecheGomez. With so much returning talent, the Gators are not only thinking about a repeat performance as Southeastern Conference champions a feat Florida mens swimming had not accomplished in 20 years prior to last season but success at the NCAA Championships as well. They took big pride in winning that last year. I think that we may have a target on us at the moment, Troy said. We fell a little short. We thought we should have been third at the NCAA meet last year. Troy reiterated those feelings for the womens team, which duish at the NCAA Championships in 2013. power in two-time Olympian and All-American senior Elizabeth Beisel. [She] can swim everything, Troy said. Shes real easygoing, so shes intense about her racing, but shes kind of fun to be around at practice. She makes other people better. The womens team is not as top heavy as the mens. The women sport a strong sophomore class comprised of 12 swimmers, They improved tremendously and had good summer, Troy said. Natalie Hinds (and) Sinead Russell were fantastic. Troy also said senior Alicia Mathieu had a breakout summer. The freshmen for both squads sport talent as well. Weve got a freshmen class six women and six men that UF boasts deep roster heading into 2013 SEE SWIMMING, PAGE 16Troy


No. 19 Florida (1-1) faces Tennessee (2-1) on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Ben Hill It was a good thing for me to come back against Miami, Jones said. Getting used to the game. I needed to feel hits and how the speed of the game changed and stuff like that. Returning to full speed proved more challenging than even Jones expected The Seffner native spent seven or eight days in the hospital and lost -12 pounds throughout the process. Headaches and nausea continued to delay and frustrate Jones, who expected to enter the season as Floridas workhorse. Jones enjoyed a successful freshman season that saw him carry the ball 52 times for 275 yards and three touchdowns while backing up Mike Gillislee in 2012. work in, Jones said. Thats the thing with football sometimes you can have a downfall. You dont know when you can get hurt. Its how you overcome it and how you come back. Jones is still not back at his normal playing weight of 226 pounds. He said he currently weighs 224 be able to shoulder the full load asked of him. For a Florida offense that has averaged only 192 rushing yards through two games the third-lowest clip in the SEC a healthy Jones will be an important addition. Jones said. I want to take the team on my back now that Im back and I feel I know how the game feels now. I have big expectations going into this game.

Jordan has three multi-goal matches this season. Gators nearing start of SEC play, host Alabama on FridayBulls defense targeting freshman forward Savannah Jordan. Were a tough matchup for a lot of teams, Burleigh said. The reason is we have some diversity in our attack and we also have some playmakers. Its hard to focus on one player. USF did that a little bit [Sunday], really trying to double team Savannah a lot and that left an opening for Havana to get a goal. Burleigh also noted that the fouls UF accumulated during the contest hindered the teams rhythm. Florida and South Florida combined to rack up 39 fouls in the matchs 110 minutes. With a 2013 schedule that showcases new opponents from across the country, Burleigh said the diverse styles of play that UF has gone up against has helped the Gators prepare for when Southeastern Conference play opens up this weekend. Florida hosts Alabama on Friday night at 7 at James G. Pressly Stadium. With the 20 shots Florida took on USFs goal Sunday and only getting one to the on the teams mind for Fridays matchup. For us, it is kind of a separate season because what weve done up to this point is only preparation for the SEC, Burleigh said. Starting Friday, everyones starting over again.

Watkins now starting at safetynounced the injury via Twitter on Sept. 9. A lot of adrenaline going during the game, the junior said Monday. I felt it, but not as much as I did after the game. I dont think it affected me at all. A bye week could not have come at a better time for UF. When Florida kicks off against Tennessee, it will be 13 days since he last played a football game. The injury occurred during one of his nine rushing attempts. It was in the second quarter. It got highlowed, (and) got stuck in the ground a little bit, he said. It could have been a lot worse, so thats the good news. Its feeling a lot better now and Ill be ready to go. Gators update depth chart: Despite having the nations third-ranked defense, coach Will Muschamp wasnt pleased with the performance against Miami. The Gators held a potent Hurricanes offense to 1.8 yards per rush and 162 yards passing. Receiver Phillip Dorsett beat starting strong safety Marcus Maye on a 52-yard games lone big play. The redshirt freshman defensive back was listed behind Watkins in the latest depth chart released by Florida on Monday. You just cant give up big plays. We cant afford that to happen, Muschamp said. Youve got to tackle better. Marcus knows that. Jaylens played well at safety for us. He will still play some corner, but hes a guy that covers well. This will be mostly a sub game in nickel and dime personnel, so we need to be in some situations where we fensive back.

come in that we feel like can contribute right away, Troy said. Troy is excited about Andrea (Mitch) DArrigo, who he believes can come in and make an immediate impact. I feel like he can play, Troy said. Troy mentioned that as an international swimmer from Italy, DArrigos speed will have to translate from long-course meters to short-course yards, which Troy called a little different animal. Theres a lot of room to make up for mistakes in a 50-meter pool, Troy said. In a 25-yard pool, theres a little less room for error. So hes going to have to improve in some of those areas, but certainly has the tools. Troy is looking forward to day Pinch A Penny All Florida Invitational beginning on Sept. 27, but there is ultimately one thing on his mind. In our sport, the end of the year is what were looking at, Troy said. RJ SCHAFFER Alligator Writer@rjschaffer When Florida played its annual match against Florida State last season, the Gators suffered one of only three sweeps of the season. The other two came against reigning national champion Texas. UF had been swept only once since 2010 an NCAA Regionals to Purdue and twice in the regular season since 2008. But the Seminoles took care of business in straight sets. Last year we went to Tallahassee and Florida State, with their experience, they really, really played well, coach Mary Wise said. many parts of the game and deserved the win. Tonights matchup at 6 will not only be an opportunity for No. 4 Florida (8-1) to avenge its loss to No. 17 Florida State (6-3), but an opportunity to see what kind of progress the program has made since last years match. Florida State will be carryset comeback win against No. 7 Michigan on Saturday. They did have to graduate a couple players that gave us trouble in the past, but its still Florida State running a similar offense, similar defense, Wise said. Great talent. I could see them winning their league again, being in the NCAA tournament and making a long run great opportunity tomorrow night. for Florida will be trying to avoid Florida States blocking. The Seminoles are tied for 34th in the nation with 2.7 blocks per game. FSUs height advantage could give it a chance to slow down UFs quick-hitting offense. The Seminoles front line includes 6-foot-1 outside hitter Olivera Medic, 6-foot-5 rightside hitter Elise Walch, 6-foot-2 outside hitter Nicole Walch and 6-foot-3 middle blocker Ashley Neff. [The Walch sisters] are going to pose a threat to everyone they play, Wise said. The other day, they had 44 kills amongst the two of them. Theyve got great arms. So, good DNA in terms of just how fast and hard they hit the ball. Middle blockers Simone Antwi, Chloe Mann and outside hitter Gabby Mallette each standing at 6-foot-2 are UFs tallest players. Freshman right-side hitter Alex Holston, who set a career high against Iona with 13 kills, a .667 hitting percentage and 13.5 points scored Saturday, could also play a critical role in the match. Wise expects Holston to perthe Gators-Seminoles rivalry. The great thing about the freshmen is they dont know what they dont know yet, Wise said. In Alexs case, its just a match in the OConnell Center. Watching how steady she was this whole year leads me to think the difference for her is going to be the great outside hitters that shes playing against. 16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 Kan Li / Alligator StaffGabby Mallette reaches to hit the ball during Floridas four-set win against Western Michigan on Saturday in the OConnell Center.
