Cometz 2) D. Fallo " Florida has a little bit of everything to offer students Lessons in financial planning, courtesy of Anderson Hall; parking frustrations, the ultimate party institution, C.J. ' s, and of course the best in academics. The best phrase to describe OF is the " most of all worlds " . This university is becoming the flagship school of the south. " — Donna M. Bartee Nursing, Class ' 88 4 Opening 4) K. Lishka " Florida is in the top ten universities in the nation, for my major. Attending school here was a step in the right direction to a successful future for me. " — Robert Bracey Engineering, Class ' 88 3) A. Eyzaguirre Opening 5 " Gators Live Life The Fullest " " This year meant elections, SG elections, the year of politics on campus; " The Clash of the Titans. " Exciting year for all students!

Webster Flickering orange light reflected off the walls of the Infirmary and Sledd and Buckman Halls as the flames consuming Johnson Hall shot skyward. One of the most memorable events of the past year was also a graphic display of what may happen to the buildings at OF with fire code violations. A few blocks away the first of three parking was ready for use. After spending $3 million on the three-level garage and designating most of the parking spaces to faculty, they refused to park there. It ' s too far to walk to my office was a common although it was only a five minute trek. Students, however, were not afraid to walk to the polls for student government elections this year. In an unusual display of student concern, the low turnout to vote was broken when crowds of students showed up. Nobody could remember seeing so many students vote. Many voters were engineers angry at the Wave party for threatening the Fair. The threat inspired the engineers to form the Express Party. After trying to get a radio station run by students for students started through the journalism school and failing, several students became fed up. They decided to start an underground station, WRAG (Radio Alternative Gainesville), at 88.1 on your FM dial. All volunteer, they used minimal equipment and their own albums. It wasn ' t the best technically, but its content was everything a college student could ask for. Throughout the year, many changes took place. Some were obvious, others were subtle, still others could only be seen by looking at things from an unusual view. — John Webster 4) E. Come Opening 7 11 P. Phillips The day of an average student began 7 am and noon, when the time arrived to force himself out of that comfortable bed and convince himself that it is necessary to attend classes to pass them. After sitting through what had to be the most boring lecture of the year — for each of his first three classes — he had a two period break before his last class of the day. Feeling hungry since he had to skip breakfast to make it to class on time, he went to the Brew for lunch and to catch the last half of their movie of the day. After lunch he went out to the Union North Lawn to catch a few rays to help keep that tan as long as possible. Relaxing in the grass, he decided to go see what new group, the Crusados, when they play the Orange Brew that weekend. Passing an Alligator stand on the way to his next class he picked one up. While for class to start, he opened the paper and scanned the headlines. Not much interesting going on in the world, so he flips to the and classifieds. The personals and sections are good for a laugh, as Looking up from the paper, he found that class began 15 minutes earlier. He decided to pass through the Plaza of the America ' s, just to see what was The big attraction was Brother Jed and Sister Cindy, the fundamentalist preachers everyone loved to heckle. Also out were the usual assortment of tie-dye T-shirt vendors, frisbee players, and sleeping and studying students. Tiring of Jed and Cindy, he went home, grabbed some food and turned on the TV. Around 7:30 it was time to go to Library East 2nd floor to study and socialize. After run- ning into some friends, everyone decided they ' ve had enough studying for one night and it was then time to go out. Central City was the choice. Getting home at 2:30 am and setting his alarm for 9 am he goes to sleep, suddenly realizing he had a 9:35 class the next day. This section was an attempt to record as many as possible of the activities undertaken by students. Since there is no " average " or " typical " day, we tried to cover a wide variety of activities and hope that we have something for everyone. As well, we tried to cover enough to introduce everyone to something they haven ' t tried ... yet. — John Webster 8 Student Life life Student Life 9 J SUNDAY 2nd Floor Library East 5th Floor CSE Purple Porpoise Joe ' s Deli MONDAY Porpoise Digger ' s Happy Hour 5-7 Banana Boat $2.50 TUESDAY Token Night at Danny ' s Porpoise or CJ ' s Banana Boat $1.00 Long Necks or Shooters All Photos on this page by E.

WEDNESDAY 3 for 1 at Chelsea ' s Street Pub Porpoise or CJ ' s or Cop- per Monkey THURSDAY Nickel Beer at the Park 2 for 1 at Chili ' s Ladies Night at Dubs Gator Bumpers for the Daring 10 Night Life Places To Go Over the years, the University of Florida picked up a reputation as a school, once named one of the best by Playboy. However, the has tried to replace that image with an Ivy League image. Despite these efforts, students still found ways to party like no other college in the state, and maintain decent GPA ' s at the same time. On weekends, parties were Many had kegs on the back porch and invited anyone within to join them. ' The Purple Porpoise Oyster Pub was full to capacity almost every weekend night, and usually drew a large crowd 0 during the week. During the football season, CJ ' s House was the most commonly vis- ited bar in town. The celebrations after the games often included beer fights, and after a few hours there everyone was standing or dancing on the tables. For those who enjoy dancing, Central City was the biggest attraction. Dub ' s also offered a dance floor along with the traditional Thursday night Mini-Skirt Contest. Club 210 and Jubilations were also very popular, catering to the large under-21 crowd. For those who pre- ferred more progressive and unusual music, the Bar was the place to go. — John Webster Getting carded at CJ ' s is part of all the fun, especially when the bouncer decides that you ' re legal. Night Life 11 Things To Do As the sun rose and the Century Tower bells rang out, the campus came to life. The students the campus hurried to get to their first period classes. At the Plaza of the Americas, were laying out in the bright sun studying, talking or relaxing. Some found that the plaza was the perfect place for a nap. The doors of the Reitz Union swung back and forth constantly as students ran errands — cashed checks, bought stamps, got haircuts or finished typing papers. Some students rushed in just in time to catch their favorite soap operas on the big screen TV or to pick up a quick snack to tide them over between classes. Others enjoyed going to music listening room to relax or study, while others played ping-pong and pool in the games area. Near the rock at Turlington Hall, students hung out between classes to read the Alligator and to talk to friends about classes, exams and weekend plans. A 5 pm most students were through with their classes for the day. Campus streets were jammed as off-campus and campus employees headed for home. Scattered across the campus, a few unlucky students hurried off to their evening classes. Another day had ended . . . and night had just begun. — Ursala Flecha 1) The GPA (Turlington) rock and its base before the bench — make a great place to read the Alligator and talk to friends between classes. 2) The wall near GPA makes a great place to hangout and meet friends. 2) E.

The Plaza of the Americans was one of the most unique areas on the University of Florida ' s campus. The Plaza, located on the north side of campus, attracted a diversified crowd to its grassy, tree-shaded grounds. On any given day, a walk through the Plaza could unfold Hari-Krishnas serving free lunch to anyone willing to partake of their generosity, musicians their instruments for those who wanted to listen, Brother Jed and Sister Cindy preaching to everyone, students eating lunch, studying, or just relaxing in the sunshine, or people selling tie- dyed shirts and jewelry. The Plaza was also notorious for the many speakers, politicians, and evangelists that walked the grounds freely speaking their minds to the plaza-goers. The Plaza was one of the best places to just " hang-out " and enjoy the day. Hari-Krishnas, evangelists, tie-dyed shirts, and musicians were just a few of the wonders of the Plaza that made it such a lively and different part of the University of Florida ' s campus.

Cometz Home Away From Home Residence Hall directors and area governments planned activities throughout the year to inform students and help them adjust to and enjoy life. Graham Hall held Tie Tails at the end of residence Hall Week. There was a casino, a disco, a patio with tables and candlelight, and an organist filling the air with music. The students, dressed in tuxedos and party dresses, collected chips at the casino to trade in later for prizes. During Alcohol Awareness Week, Graham Hall set up a mock bar where students were served virgin margaritas and daquiries in the hope that they would realize it is possible to have a good time without drinking. Beatty Towers also held an Awareness in which Resident Assistants drank alcohol and then took breatha- lizer tests. During the Fall Semester, Tolbert Area held its annual Mud Fest. played volleyball, tug-of-war, and mud-polo in a pit of mud during floor vs. floor competition. Murphree Area held I RHA ' s " Deck the Hall " program, a Homecoming B- B-Q, a Halloween Party, and Late Night with Letter MAC.

I) P. Phillips By mid-morning on Friday Oct. 16, the sidewalks along West University Ave. were crowded with spectators awaiting the annual Homecoming Eager children and ardent Gator fans turned out in force to witness the parade. Children gazed in awe at the vibrant colors of the floats and listened to the cheerful sounds of the marching bands. Everyone had fun, both in and out of the parade. Many of the floats displayed the spirit of their sponsor ' s by depicting the Temple Owls in various stages of defeat. Sigma Pi ' s float had a Gator an Owl as a punching bag. The Ben- ton Engineering Council ' s float showed a Gator couple dining on roast Temple Owl. The theme for several other floats was " Gators in Paradise. " Sigma Phi Epsilon showed this with Gators on a beach, while Lambda Chi Alpha and Delta Phi Epsilon had a Gator being fed grapes by Owl slaves in the tradition of the ancient Romans. Albert and Alberta provided a fitting conclusion to the extravagant display of Gator spirit. Near the end of the they rode around in the latest fashion of autos, the Suzuki Samauri. — P aul Phillips 3) A. Eyzaguirre 4) J.

Along with Student Government Productions, the Reitz Union Council and the Orange and Brew Entertainment Committee brought less-well-known and fast-rising new bands to perform for students. Bringing in many small bands prevented SGP from bringing in a lot of big name bands; however, the Fat Boys and Eddie Murphy did stop in to perform. The Eddie Murphy show was one of the most memorable and exciting concerts of the fall semester. His act consisted of mocking people such as Oprah Winfrey and Bill Cosby and poking fun at homosexuals. The 90 minute show kept the crowd roaring with laughter the entire evening. The Gregg Allman concert was held as part of the Homecoming Kick-off Party. His two hour performance was mostly old classics from the 70 ' s with a few songs from his latest album, including the first big release " I ' m No Angel. " Icehouse, a band from Australia, opened the show for the Cars. Their music was a unique combination of pop music and poetic lyrics. The Cars played in support of their latest album release " Door to Door.

Wayne Reitz Union offered many services to students ranging from haircuts to public. The Arts and Crafts Center located on the ground floor offered leisure courses and workshops. The Center was equipped with tools, equipment and a library. Some workshops offered were colored clay sculpture, broom making and junk jewelry making.

The Intramurals department offers a variety of leagues in over ten sports each semester. Groups of friends were often seen participating in pick-up games of basketball, football and Another favorite way to spend time was going to the nearest beaches: Crescent Beach and St. Augustine Beach. A little closer to home, Lake Wauberg also provided a good escape for Students rented canoes, kayaks, sailboats and rowboats. Many quiet, grassy areas were also available for those who just wanted to relax, read, or study. The Devil ' s Millhopper and the Medicinal Gardens were other favorite spots to enjoy nature and get away from the hectic university life. The 34th Street wall was almost lost as the local message board when Jim Evangelist wanted to paint a mural over the graffiti. The Reitz Union Program Council ' s Art Committee built a 40-foot wall of paper at the union for students to show their support of the graffiti. Two Gainesville residents printed anti-mural t-shirts to protest Evangelist ' s mural idea. Most everyone agreed the concept for the mural, the endangered wildlife, was a good idea, it was that the graffiti on the wall was an eye-sore that needed to be covered permanently that most students disagreed with. After a while, the controversy died and the wall still stood . . . covered with graffiti. — John Webster 2) C. Kuperman 1) J.

To get to campus from their many students chose to drive, students chose to ride the Gainesville Regional Transit buses, the trolley, or even to take cabs. One apartment complex even offered its own bus service to campus. Jessica Bakule 46 Transportation 1) D.

Now the slopes of Veil, Steamboat, or any other place where the snow shines hot for skiing are also Spring Break Meccas. The attraction of the slopes offered a variety of entertainment. Skiing for the first time skier, snow sledding, snow mobiling, and nighttime skiing catered to the fancy of most students while tended to stay indoors and just relax in a steamroom or jacuzzi. Dayglow where people would paint with glowing paint, thrilled many as well. The beaches still remained extremely popular for those who couldn ' t afford the expense of skiing. Daytona Beach and Key West cruised as the hot spots. Hotels, motels, and even cars packed themselves with students at the beach. Fort Lauderdale, once the hot spot for students, waned in popularity as in Fort Lauderdale tried to attract a different crowd crowd than so-called party students. Yet, any beach tended to be filled with Spring Breakers. MTV also helped in attracting students to the beaches by offering music at different locations in Florida. While some students complained that Spring Break came to early int he semester (first week in March), it did offer a welcomed break for just about all; whether it meant time on the slopes, at the beach, or simply relaxing time at home with mom and dad.

However, Willis had to wait 33 days before student senate officially allowed him to take office and serve the The Student Senate refused to Willis as president. Wave members claimed Willis won unfairly. The Board of Masters, the highest court in Student Government, decided that the senators should validate Willis as president after determining that there was no wrong- doing in the election process. After much dispute Willis officially moved into his office. Willis, a senior engineering student, decided to run for president after the denial of funding by Student Government for several groups he considered worthwhile.

Those who remained, however, had the opportunity to celebrate Easter in a different way. At the bandshell, reggae bands played all day drawing huge crowds. Sponsored by Caribsa and Student Government, the now annual reggae festival drew some of the largest crowds seen at the Bandshell. Burning Spear, Inner Circle, House of Assembly, the Naturalites and the Killer Bees kept the crowds dancing, swaying and throughout the afternoon and into the evening. Despite the threat of rain people to come to the festival during the entire production. Aside from the music, many other impromptu games picked up on the outside edge of the crowd. Frisbee, hackeysack and games were common. After playing these sports, the tired, hungry and thirsty players could buy food and drinks at nearby concession stands and rest and relax listening to the rasta bans. — Ursala Flecha 54 Reggae 21 R.

Apartments provided more privacy and a much larger area to keep messy. They also provided residents with the opportunity to cook their own food night, buy food to cook, pay power, gas, cable, telephone and newspaper bills, and then try to find money for rent. Most apartment complexes had in several apartments each This helped students get to know each other, and socialize with friends, all while getting wasted at someone else ' s expense. Many complexes were forced to to convince students to live in their complexes. Since the university began reducing enrollment, available housing units have outnumbered students by a large margin.

If that was all there was to it, college life would be an awful lot easier. Academics also included spend- ing hours each week doing homework, staying up all night cramming for finals and writing papers and trying to find a quiet place to study. For many it also meant spend time on the practice fields going over drills, for sports and ROTC. It meant standing for three hours at a stretch mixing chemicals for Chem I lab. It meant scratching messages into desks (or reading ones already there) when classes get too boring. It meant getting up very early and fighting crowds while going through drop add. It meant trying to figure out how to use a computer without being taught. — John Webster L. Doss 62 Academics academics Academics 63 1 6 Easy Steps For Drop Add 1. Get up at 7 am. You want to get drop add over with as quickly and painlessly as don ' t you? Maybe this year you ' ll beat the rush by being first in line. Don ' t forget to take a number two pencil and wear comfortable shoes. 2. Pick up a handful of drop add forms at Tigert Hall. On second thought, get a few more, its going to be a long day. 3. " Go to the Department which offers each course you wish to add or drop. You must obtain the signature of the chair or his her authorized representative for each course you wish to ADD or DROP. " 4. Since you didn ' t get the classes you wanted, start compromising. You need to add a class since you didn ' t get that philosophy class. Hmm ... how about Art: The Artistic Experience. Sounds good. Fill out bubble sheet. 5. Walk over to the Fine Arts building. Follow the crowd up the stairs to the list of sections still open. They ' re all closed. 6. Take out the course registration paper and select another class. How about GLY 1000 Geology. You have to take a physical science some time, might as well do it now. Besides, its a large lecture class and shouldn ' t be closed. Fill out another sheet. 7. Walk across campus to GPA. There are signs posted that point the way to the representative " who is your ticket to freedom. You take your place at the end of a line that disappears around the corner ahead of you. At least now you ' re getting somewhere. After ten minutes in line, the impatient voice of the unsympathetic representative announces, " All sections of GLY 1000 are closed. " 8. By now it will be the middle of the and everyone will be out. You run into an old friend and exchange the day ' s horror stories. Your friend suggests getting onto a waiting list. You decide you have nothing to lose. Head for ASB, the department. 9. There is a waiting list for that class you wanted in the first place, but even the line to sign it is long. Decide its not worth it and leave. 10. By now you ' ll sign up for anything. Find the most obscure sounding course or department in the paper. How about and Sport Sciences? Fill out another bubble sheet for DAE2360 Folk, Social, and Jazz Dance. Walk back to GPA. 11. Walk around one entire floor looking for room 1350. Walk around once more. Try following someone who looks like they know where they ' re going. Finally, ask some lady standing at a table if she can point you to room 1350. She looks around. " Oh, " she exclaims, " that ' s right here. " 12. Once she signs your sheet, " report to the check-in table at Florida Gym where you form will be reviewed and checked for the proper signature(s).

At that point, saving the Romance Languages Building became top priority. The police quickly blocked off University Ave. and put up crime scene ribbons to keep the onlookers from getting too close. Many students cheered and took pictures when the roof collapsed, and the Talking Heads ' " Burning Down the House " blasted through the air from the nearby Murphree Area dorms. To OF administrators, however, the burning of Johnson Hall meant the loss of an invaluable building which housed the recently Rathskellar, Dining Service offices and many professor ' s offices. — Jessica Bakule More people were out to see Johnson Hall burn down than usually go to class on a nice day. — Michelle Nance 2) R.

IT A Johnson Hall 69 By The Students, For The After many years of fighting with the administration for a student run radio station, WRAG started broadcasting in March of 1988. The students were fed up with pleading their case with the administration and journalism school to fund their proposed station, so several students got together, took matters into their hands, and started an underground radio station at 88.1 on the FM dial. The volunteers for WRAG set up the electronics, and donated their own equipment to their cause. They also donated their time to DJ for the pirate station. They played most kinds of music, as long as it wasn ' t heard on regular commercial radio stations. Some of the albums played were from the Dead Kennedy ' s, Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark (OMD), and the Glenn Miller Band. The station relied entirely on the record collections of its staff for its musical selection, having no collection itself. At first their equipment was limited to one turntable and a one watt of broadcasting power. The limited power severly restricted the number of students able to pick up the station to basically those on campus. The y immediately began working on getting a more powerful broadcaster to allow more people to receive the station. They were also trying to obtain a second turntable.

At some time, almost every college student was required to take a lab along with a classroom course. Labs were required for such classes as Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Writing for Mass The lab gave students the to actually experience the material they were studying in the classroom. For students labs meant not having an expensive textbook to buy, little homework to do each week, writing lab reports and a class that lasted three hours straight. Many students enjoyed lab courses more than usual lecture classes because they were able to get hands-on experience with the subject instead of simply listening to a professor talk about it. — John Webster 1) Computer labs are becoming more and more common as computers become a part of everyone ' s daily life. 2) A biology student fine tunes the focus on her microscope to obsere microorganisms and cells. 1) P.

There was plenty of greek gossip, the usual collection of telephone numbers, rock groups, test answers, poems, radio stations, drawings, hearts and " I luv so-and- so ' s. " But mixed in with all the usual stuff were some truly unusual and amusing philosophies to make spending your time reading desk graffiti a little more worthwhile. Some were personal messages that tell something about the author: I want a real man . . . I hate you all . . . The water pistol boy ... I need a beer . . . Where are you? . I have no mouth . . . I ' m in agony. Others were to tell you about other people: Marshall Criser is a neato guy ... Elvis grooves . . . Clones are people too ... Tip O ' Neil is sexy .. . Ted Kopped is God . . . God is bored . . . I ' m in love and so is he. Some were comments or suggestions: You s hould study .. . Don ' t sit here . . .

No longer are engineers and scientists the only ones who use computers, students in all other disciplines have learned of their abilities also. Many majors required to purchase programs that would be helpful in their course work. Other times it would be " highly recommended " that students write programs. Computers were becoming more involved in students everyday lives also. It was becoming common to keep financial records on and let it balance the checkbook. Many seniors learned how to make their resumes and cover letters on computers, easing the job search considerably. — Jessica Bakule John Webster It ' s Better Than A Typewriter 3) 1) After many attempts to debug her program, this student is stumped. 2) Shirley Haddle consults with her instructor, Gary Boyce, about some of the problems she is having with her program. 3) Crowded computer labs are a common encounter at the end of each semester. 1) Colleges Diversify university The University of Florida consisted of 15 major colleges. These colleges allowed students to specialize into specific areas in particular subjects or remain as general as they liked. These 15 colleges were summarized and presented over the next six pages. The College of Agriculture tried to give its students the best possible education in the fields of agricultural business, technology and sciences through its various departments and studies. Areas of specialization included tropical agriculture, environmental studies and computer science. The School of Forest Resources and Conservation, part of the College of Agriculture, provided even more specialized studies. — M. Kroll The College of Architecture has become one of the biggest design and construction institutions in the country. The college provided students with a broad scope of areas in which they could specialize. Some of these disciplines included architecture, building construction, interior design and landscape architecture. — M. Kroll The College of Business Administration offered majors in accounting, finance (including real estate and insurance), marketing and economics to approximately 3,000 undergraduate and 400 graduate students. The annual Professional Business Day brought many companies to campus. Company representatives answered students questions and set up interviews with seniors. — L. Phillips The College of Dentistry, founded in 1972, was the only dental school in Florida. Although a relatively young college, it strived toward excellency preparing its students to enter private dental practice, graduate programs, research activities and a lifetime of continuing education. The dentistry program consisted of intense lab and clinical work, along with the regular classroom activities. H. Vo 1) E. Cometz 2) A. Lauredo 78 Colleges 4) R.

The college provided a broad education encompassing the fundamentals for future employment or further study. It encouraged students to raise questions of human need and provided answers in scientific terms. The college was divided into 12 departments with 14 undergraduate degrees ranging from aerospace engineering to nuclear engineering. — B. Comas The College of Fine Arts was established with the College of Architecture in 1925. In 1975 it broke away to become the College of Fine Arts. Since that time, many teachers and studenets have helped develop it into a complex and varied department. For the student entering the college, it provided a pathway to a professional career in art, theatre or music. Non-majors were also included and received a cultural opportunity to learn about the different arts of the world. — T. Hill The College of Journalism and Communications offered a variety of programs and degrees. The curricula in advertising, journalism, public relations and telecommunications provided a strong background for many students. Students obtained practical experience by working at the university ' s television and radio stations, the Alligator, the Gainesville Sun, and several student publications. — L. Miniet The College of Law was founded in 1909, accredited by the New York State Board of Regents in 1917, admitted by the Association of American Law School in 1920, and recognized by the American Bar Association in 1925. Since it was founded, the college has attempted to impart a thorough, scientific, and practical knowledge of the law, together with an understanding of its role in a democratic society. — M. Kroll — H. Vu The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences served as the center of academic advisement on campus. With over half the student body enrolled in the college, it was the largest college on campus. It was responsible for all students with less than 64 credits, so students in other disciplines registered for an average of 40% of their classes in the college. — A. Lauredo UNIVERSITY OF 5) Courtesy College of Law Colleges 81 University Offers Many Areas Of Study The College of Medicine was responsible for several major educational programs, especially the four year program leading to the M.D. degree. Residency programs were offered for physicians after their graduation. The Ph.D degree in medical sciences was available with many areas of specialization. The Shands Hospital, part of the J. Hillis Miller Health Sciences Center complex was used as the teaching hospital for the College of Medicine. The college was also responsible for patient care, teaching and research at the Veteran ' s Administration Hospital. — L. Miniet The College of Nursing practiced within the context of a helping relationship. It was a dynamic interactive process to promote, maintain, prevent and treat human responses to illness. Nursing courses included extensive classroom activities that correlated with supervised observation and practice in primary, secondary, tertiary, restorative and continuing care settings. — C. Fowler The College of Pharmacy offered a four year professional program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy degree and a three year program for a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy degree. Both degrees provided a scientific and cultural background necessary for a successful practice in pharmacy. The college also stressed research and innovations. — T. Lundell The College of Health and Human Performance offered a wide selection of courses ranging from travel and tourism to coaching baseball. The college was divided into three departments: exercise and sports sciences; health science education; and recreation, parks and tourism. Students were expected to participate in extracurricular activities to help them prepare for their careers. — T. Lundell The College of Veterinary Medicine was the newest of the six colleges in the J. Hillis Miller Health Sciences Center. The college established five baisc goals for students to meet. These goals included educating and training student veterinarians for the specific needs of Florida, performing research on subtropical animal diseases and providing an active referral and extension program designed specifically for the verterinary profession. — T.

Noisy residence halls and apartment complexes led to overcrowded libraries all over But, before becoming frustrated, many students thought creatively and found unusual places to study. Michael Baldwin, a Political Science major, found studying at work to be the best solution. " I work at Putt Putt Golf and when the weather is bad, cold or raining, no one comes out, so I study overlooking the 19th hole. Sometimes I even get paid to study. And no, we ' re not hiring, " he added quickly. During the warmer months of the year, Gators lined the poolsides and pond banks. Holly Hochroth said her practice of studying while allowed her to accomplish two things at one time. Holly added that even if she didn ' t get any studying done, " At least I get a tan. " Christine Sawyer also found the outdoors a congenial studying place. " I study at Roper Park, which also allows me to watch the squirrels and listen to the birds. " Desperately seeking a place to study where outside noise wasn ' t a problem, students looked for places where they would not be disturbed. " I just study anywhere I can find some quiet, " said William Granger, a Pre-med student. He added, " But I go to the North Hall Library when I want to socialize, as well as study. " Terri Nethers shared a similar idea. " I like to go and find an empty class- room in Weil Hall and study there. It ' s really quiet. " Students spend a tremendous amount of time doing their laundry, so what better place to study? Steve Jones, a freshman, had the right idea. " Anywhere you go, there are too many distractions, but the room is so dull that it makes studying almost exciting. " Julie an Education major, said, " If it wasn ' t for the laundry room, I don ' t think I ' d get any studying done.

Did you satisfy your summer sweating in the basement of Peabody or sitting in Turlington wondering what the weather was like outside? Well, with more than thirty study programs spanning across foreign countries you could have joined fellow Gators in the study abroad program offered by the Center for International Student and Faculty Exchangers (CISFE). You could have been exploring the of Brazil, the Eiffel Tower in London pubs, or many other places. The summer programs fullfill the State University System ' s requirements, and many of the students travelled abroad for the academic year. An enthusiastic staff at CISFE, located at 168 Grinter Hall, was already making plans to " expand even further " to the head of the program, Diana Lopez. Aniette Lauredo took advantage of the program and travelled to College in London. " As a I was able to take advantage of opportunities not available to the visitor.

Phillips Bags under the eyes, quiet 3 a.m. pizza deliveries, endless pots of coffee, test anxiety . . . before you knew it, it was time for final It seemed that no matter how early you began reviewing, you found yourself needing to " cram " in those last few days (or hours) before each test. This led to late nights and little sleep. When serious studying needed to be done, many found that the quiet and lack of distractions of the night was just what they needed to And how did people stay awake when they just didn ' t have time to sleep? Coffee or Vivarin did the trick, and for some a cold shower or a jog around the block was just as effective. Perhaps the biggest cause of all night cramming was procrastination. Putting things off until the last made the work seem " The situation usually wasn ' t as bleak as it seemed, " said Chris Smithies of the Counseling Center. In general, it was especially important to eat well, sleep well, and exercise during exam time. During dead week there seemed to be an increase in the number of giving advice, help and support to stressed students. Many residence halls sponsored " Dead Week which provided a chance to take a break and enjoy free donuts. " Midnight Breakfast " in dorm cafe- terias was also popular, serving breakfast from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. The Counseling Center gave a mini on how to cram efficiently; were tips on test taking and which soft drinks had the most Special tutoring sessions were set up for classes such as economics, statistics, and calculus. In view of the number of students needing extra quiet time to study, Carlton Audito- rium remained open from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. as an all-night study hall, increased their quiet hours, libraries stayed open until 1 a.m. and classrooms were left unlocked. Whether or not you did well on your finals, you could breathe a sigh of relief when the last one had been turned in.

Eyzaguirre 92 Sports sports Sports 93 Season Starts Slow But Builds Speed The Fighting Gator Football Season started off weak, but gradually improved as the players, coaches, and fans began the routine of another year. Excitement was in the air for the first game of the season against Miami since it marked the last time the two schools would meet until 1992. Unfortunately, Miami ' s offensive plan of short completions to running backs led them to a 31-4 victory. One of the more prominent stars of the season, freshman Emmitt Smith, showed his talent that would last throughout the season. The Tulsa game marked the Florida Field home opener and the final score of 52-0 kept the Gator confidence up and hopes alives. A victory over Alabama, 32-14, marked the first win in Birmingham for the Gators since the SEC was formed in 1933. Emmitt Smith set a University of Florida single game rushing record with 224 yards, and the Gator defense managed five quarterback sacks against the Alabama offense. The Mississippi game marked their first appearance at Florida Field since they lost 27-12 in 1984 — Coach Galen Hall ' s debut as head coach.

For students who wished to get involved, the University of Florida had a society for them. Conventional interests were met by the Gator Band, the NAACP, and Blue Key, while special interests were met by such organizations as the Surf Club, COAR, and Amnesty International. Every club offered a chance to meet and speak with fellow students who shared their interests. Organizations were centered around philanthropic, political, social and civic activities. In any case, each society contributed to the individuality and uniqueness of student life. From organizations, students gained valuable experiences, friendships, and information which they would continue to carry with them beyond their college days. The variety of societies and organizations helped to shape and mold our successful and diverse graduates. Margaret Potter 144 Organizations ORGANIZATIONS 1) J.

The club ' s membership was over 100 members strong due to the leadership of President Jim Yuran, Vice President Scott Anderton, Secretary Sam Canto and Treasurer Sonya The club first began about 10 years ago when some free- spirited surfers decided to get together and compete against each other. When they realized other Florida colleges had similar clubs they began to take themselves a little more seriously. Under the guidance of Contest Coordinator Carl Lotspeich, the team competed more than eight times during the year including one alumni competition and a national competition in California. Trophies they won were later displayed in the Inland Surf Shop, the club ' s local sponsor. Not all members competed in the state-wide competitions. To compete against other schools a member had to have a 2.0 GPA and had been a full-time student. But, don ' t misunderstand, although they took surfing seriously, they considered themselves " flexible " . — Pam Heimburg 2) J. Webster 3) E.

They supported the community by raising money for charities, and they supported each other through lasting friendships. They tutored each other for those really tough classes; sponsored parties on weekends, and participated in intramural sports. The result of all this was a tightly knit group of friends, who on the average had a slightly higher GPA than the university average, and who were very important to community charities. However, many students only heard of the " partying " Greek image portayed by the media. They picked up on the occasional rule infraction and the loud parties, without paying attention to the other side of the Greek system. Each Greek organization had its own philanthropy, for which it sponsored several fund raising drives throughout the year. These drives took the form of car washes, concerts, parties, and road rallies, among the many other creative ideas members came up with. The entire picture included not only the social aspect of the Greek lifestyle, but the academic, competitive and fun- draising sides as well, not to mention the fun and friendship that ran so deep among the brothers and sisters of each fraternity and sorority. — John Webster 1) E.

It looked as if the last year of your college career would be wonderful: no more homework, no more classes, eternal freedom. In truth, that was a far cry from how most seniors felt. Along with the classes, many of which were the toughest of your years at college, there was also the task of finding a job or applying to graduate schools. It was time to decide between the big money and responsibilities of a job in the " real world " or the continued " excitement " of college study (overlooking the and tests) and another few years of being a poor college student. For many seniors, the time required to find a job, even with the expert help of the Career Resource Center, was as much as a four credit class, and much more frustrating. But not everything about a senior ' s life was difficult and time consuming. After spending four or five years at the university, seniors knew the " tricks-of-the-trade " of a college student. They knew the secrets of how to avoid many of the " unavoidable lines " , such as for Gator Growl and OF vs. Georgia football game tickets, drop — add and registration. Seniors knew which parts of the Hari-Krishna lunches were good — and how much of it they could eat safely. They also knew how to spend the least possible amount of time studying to pass each class, how late they could sleep in and still make it to class on time and which classes it was really necessary to attend if it was raining. Most important for many seniors, they knew all the best places to party in Hogtown, all the best bars and all the best specials. They also knew that Turlington Hall is really sim- ply GPA. For all, it was one of the most exciting times of their lives, seeing all those years of work finally pay off at graduation. But it was also a time touched with sadness, for many left the beloved Hogtown and all its familiar sights and sounds forever. John Webster 1) J.

Overcoming a lack of dedicated staff members, missed deadlines and financial crises, a small number of dedicated staff members gave up part of their summer to finish production of the 1988 Tower. The staff spent many long hours gathering information, making phone calls, writing copy and drawing layouts to finish the book. The photographers used hundreds of rolls of film and spent seemingly endless hours in the darkroom to fill the yearbook with the excellent photos we were able to use. Through all this the staff has managed to produce the sixth edition of the Tower Yearbook. —John Webster I would like to give a special thanks to the following staffers: Kim Mills Margaret Potter Paul Menendez Ed Cometz Reggie Grant Kathleen Gallagher JoLynn Drake Ursala Flecha Closing 319 The 1988 Tower Yearbook is the sixth edition of the official yearbook of the University of Florida.
