Twenty seven years ago there was nothing but Thomas
Hall, today the University of Florida campus, studded with
moss heavy pines, embraces more than a score of beautiful
ivy clad buildings The path from a mere handful of scattered
students in 1905 to a great institution teaming with life and
filled to the overflowing with the flower of the young manhood
of the state has been marked by achievement and progress
When the University first opened its doors under the prcsi
dency of Dr Sledge, it consisted of the College of Arts and
Sciences, the Agricultural Experiment Station and the Normal
School In 1909 we find following in rapid succession the
During this year the University underwent a reorganization
during which Dr A A M urphree was elected president

The old gives way to the new, the new becomes old and
gives way to the new again. We hasten to keep pace with the
every quickening movement of our time. The University is
young and yet old. But it is a far cry from the sleepy days
just following the turn of the century to the atmosphere of
today, with its rush and bustle of modern life. It will be a
more distant cry twenty-seven years hence, but let us hope
and believe that the same fine type of man will trod our
campus then as now.
