After the Civil War the school was moved to Gainesville where it merged with Florida Agricultural College. According to the Office of Academic Affairs, the initial enrollment after the school became the University of Florida was 102. Now, in 1993, enrollment has jumped to over 34,000. Kim Vincente, 2 UF, was prepared for the large campus after being told about it during high school in Jacksonville. " Once I got here it wasn ' t hard to get used to, " she said. Some students were overwhe lmed at first, but sports and organizations helped them became more familiar with the campus.

Some students came from small towns surrounding Gainesville while others moved from larger metropolitan areas. Jessica Long, 3 LS, came from Cape Coral, Fl. two years ago and found that the community rallied around the university. " I really like how the town is supportive of the college, " she said. Northerners found their way to UF too. Students came from all over, even as far away as New England. Stephen Burkowski, 3 JM, of Westfield, N.J., says Gainesville was smaller and closer nit because the university is the nucleus of the town.

During Homecoming, the traditional main events were the parade and Gator Growl, held the day before the game, and the football game which brought Homecoming to a close. But the celebration actually began about a week before the game. The smaller activities took place during the school week. An organizational expo traditionally occured outside the Reitz Union at which many pre-professional, special and service organizations set up informational tables. The two-day expo helped groups to recruit new and get more publicity on campus. Other events such as the bar-b-que and appearences made by the UF cheerleaders and football players kept excitement going throught the week. Finally, every Homecoming was marked with a concert. This year the group Kris Kros performed at the O ' Connell Center and drew a large crowd of students and Gainesville Homecoming was not just made up of large events but also smaller ones which stretched the annual festivities to one of the most important weeks during the fall And more events meant that more people and organizations could get involved. — by Monica Curry 26 Student Life A student putts for prizes during the Organization Expo outside the Reitz Union Homecoming week.

A student tries to untangle his bike from the full bike rack. Sometimes, just like cars, there didn ' t seem to be enough spaces for bike racks either. Ways to Get to C ass A student rides her bike along Museum Road on her way to class. Bikes of all types were found on campus, this year mountain bikes seemed to be the choice. When students chose where they to live, transportation became an issue. Was their house or close enought to campus that they could walk? Or did they want to bike or drive onto campus everyday? Others who lived near city bus stops had the option of taking public transportation onto campus. Those who chose to walk spent the least money of all. Parking decals weren ' t for these students, and bike repairs and maintenance didn ' t have to be figured into the semester budget. But anyone who used public transportation, cars or bikes were sure to spend some money. Bicyclists rode everything from Huffy ' s to Cannondales and ten-speeds to road bikes. Most invested at least $20 on a good U-lock or chain to prevent theft, which did occur on campus. Some bicycle owners took their front wheel off and locked it up to their bike for added protection. Students who drove onto campus were given a place to park depending on how many credit hours they had earned. Freshmen and sophomores parked in the Park-and-Ride lot on the edge of campus off Hull Road. After parking they could bike into campus or take a bus that came to the lot every 10 minutes. A year decal plus the bus pass usually cost at least $50. Juniors and seniors could park in the com- muter lots located by the O ' Connell Cen- ter and Hume Hall. The lot next to Hume also had bus transportation. Almost all students, with the exception of resident assistants, those with on-campus housing and a few others were limited to these parking lots. Each student who parked on campus was required to purchase a decal but not a bus pass. Other students who lived off-campus could use the Regional Transit System (RTS) to get to class. RTS bus routes drove past many of the predominantely student apartment complexes. They bus passes also. Finally, at night the Student Nighttime Auxilary Patrol (SNAP) offered people a walking escort or a bus ride around to provide safe transportation to and from cars or dormitories. Many students took advantage of this free service. — by Monica Curry 44 Student Life A University Police Officer issues a ticket near Turlington.

Birkenstocks, beeds and tees were in vogue this year. Although students wore a variety of colors, stripes and prints, back to basics was this year ' s fashion trend. A common outfit to wear to school was jeans, t-shirt and tennis or deck shoes. But not everyone stuck to these trends. It was easy to find variety and individuality if someone walked throught the Plaza of the Americas, for example. Bright stockings, earthy colors and colorful jeans were in style also. People, however, disagreed on what OF students wore as a whole. Jonathon Abramson, 4 LS, of New York City said northerners were more trendy. Down in the south everyone dressed the same. " Everybody dresses in preppy clothes, and if you dress differentely people look at you, " he said. " When I had my long hair , everybody stared at me, " Abramson said. But Carla Davis, 4 BA, of Gainesville said it seemed like people could wear whatever they wanted to and still be accepted. " There are certain circles where people try to wear similar things, but in an overall sense there doesn ' t seem to be any one style that is more than another, " she said.

President George Bush and his runnimg mate, Dan Quayle, were the incumbents. The challengers were Gov. Bill Clinton and Sen. Al Gore as his running mate. And then there was Ross Perot, the on-again, off-again candidate. First he was a candidate, then he dropped out. Then, about five weeks before day, he dropped back in. Some called this billionaire businessman from Texas a spoiler; some called him a savior. George Bush was born on June12, 1924. After service in the Navy during World War II, Mr Bush first went into the oil business and then went into He was elected a congressman from Texas in 1967. And then, after a stint as CIA director and to the UN and then US to China, he became vice president under Ronald Reagan in 1980. After eight years in that job, he ran for president in 1988 and won. His vice president was Dan Quayle, an unknown and untested Senator from Indiana. Born in 1947, Quayle put a conservative imprint on the Bush he began his political career in 1976 as a congressman from Four years later he was elected to the Senate. Bush kept Quayle as his running mate in 1992. The two arrived at the GOP convention Houston as underdogs to the ticket. During the GOP convention, the impression the Bush strategists sought to convey was that the president is the true agent of change and that Clinton was slick and unreliable. For the Democrats, the economy — and Bush ' s perceived mishandling of it — remained the main message that they hammered again and again. When George Bush ' s campaign for the presidency began to falter, he turned to his longtime friend James A. Baker III for help. Baker took leave from his duties as of State and joined the campaign to get it back on track. Baker was repeating the role he performed in 1988, when he quit as President Reagan ' s treasury to run then — Vice Bush ' s campaign. He travels little with the President, preferring to stage-manage events from the White House. After the Democratic convention in New York City, the Clinton Gore ticket was far ahead in the polls. Bill Clinton stepped into the national spotlight and won the nomination at the Democratic convention in a hot July week in New York City. Clinton, a former Rhodes Scholar at Oxford and a graduate of Yale Law School, was governor of Arkansas when he decided to enter the race. As his running mate, he chose Al Gore, who was elected to the House of Represenatatives at the age of 28 in his first campaign for public office.

The Gators connected even though their inexperienced offensive line was seeing its first competitive action as a group. Unfortunately, the Gators lost their next two in a row to Tennesse and Mississippi State and everything seemed to crumble. The Gators didn ' t give up. They won their next seven games -- the biggest coming against arch rival Georgia. With a win over Vanderbilt, the Gators were on top of the SEC Eastern Division. Florida finished the regular season with a loss at Florida State, but won a bid to meet undefeated Alabama in the first ever SEC Championship game. In 1992, the SEC added the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Arkansas Razorbacks, splitting the SEC into an Eastern and Western Division. Florida won the East, Alabama the West -- earning a date in Birmingham. After falling behind 21-7 against Alabama, the Gators rallied, tied the score and were ready to go ahead. But the momentum left as quickly as it came. Returning an errant Gator pass, Alabama won the g ame and a trip to the Sugar Bowl. Florida went on to the Gator Bowl and beat North Carolina State 27-10 in foggy Jacksonville.

The Gator ' s 286.7 average passing yards per game was fourth best in the school ' s history and ranked sixth in the nation. The Gators were fourth best in SEC history in TD passes with 25.

After a night of partying, it was questionable whether I was going to attend the inaugural SEC Championship game. The 20 other people in my room ( a slight exaggeration) were all slowly waking up. I brushed my teeth and drove to Burger King. On the radio, a guy said game tickets were selling for between $200 and $600. I was tired and sick and $600 sounded pretty good. I was going to scalp my ticket. I went back to the hotel and picked up the 30 people (It ' s amazing how many friends you can make) and squeezed them all into my five seater. We made it to Legion Field and tail-gated before the game. Outside the stadium, I saw more anti-Gator paraphernalia than I thought could exist. My 40 friends were yelling " It ' s great to be a Florida Gator! " but getting drowned out by a lot of " Roll Tide! " That ' s when I decided to keep my ticket. That ' s when I knew that every fan would count. Was I disappointed when I walked back to my car with my 50 friends after watching a 28- 21 loss and losing a potential $600? Maybe a little. However, I realized then what Gator Pride was all about.

The win also earned the Gators much respect, not only from Florida State, but the basketball world as well. The other standout moment came against the Vanderbilt Commodores. Vandy came to the O ' Connell Center with every intention of sending away a capacity crowd into the cold January night without the warmth of a win. It seemed that Vandy accomplished what they had set out to do, holding a one-point lead with only one possession left for Florida and little time on the clock. Receiving the in-bounds pass, Stacey Poole calmly put up the last second shot and a 62-61 victory. Florida finished the regular season with a 16-10 record needing a few wins in the SEC Tournament to secure a NCAA Tournament bid. The wins never came, but Florida did receive a post-season berth to the NIT. While the second season was short lived, with Florida losing to eventual NIT champion MInnesota, the Gators were just one of 96 Divisions involved in the tournament play.

He comes in assorted sizes, weights, and ages, but all seem to have the same creed: to delay doing class assignments and term papers; to anticipate forthcoming weekends; to engage In all night [bull sessions; to do the right thing at the wrong time and the wrong thing at the right time; to complain Incessantly; and to work together as brothers. The SAE is found everywhere -- on campus and off, on the floor, tables, op and down stairs, piling books here and there, at Joe ' s, C.J. ' s, or Daytona. An SAE is Truth with lipstick on his collar; Beauty adulterated only by a T-shirt and bermudas; Wisdom with a beer in his hand; Hope-for-the-future with a date on his arm. He is a composite — he has the energy of a pocketsize atomic bomb,the irresponsibility of an overnight guest; the lungs of a dictator, the enthusiasm of an evangelist, the ability of a taxpayer, the friendliness of a salesman ... He likes cars, girls, parties, Crescent Beach, the rack, and open-house. He ' s not much, for blind dates, final exams, honor court, getting up early, or the shaft. in the SAE house you will find a conglomeration n of all sorts of character . . . politicians, brains, goof-offs, athletes, ex-athletes, hell-raisers and he-men. Nobody gets as much fun out of a Joke or TV program. Nobody else can sleep as much, eat as much, drink as much, cram as much, date as much and enjoy life as much. Nobody else is quite so attractive or so unaware of it. Mothers love them, fathers finance them, other boys envy them, girls glorify them, Heaven protects them, and the rest are divided on the subject. The SAE is a musical creature. He can make your life miserable or elegant. He can be concerned or indifferent. He can make you laugh, he can be serious, or he can be irresponsible, but no matter what his moods, his intentions, or his actions, there is a spot in your heart from which he cannot be locked out.

They tripped over the bricks at Turlington, carried maps across campus, and made their bit appearances at frat parties. They came on to campus and experienced the overwhelming size of the University of Florida. They came from high schools where they were the top of the heap, to college, where they were not only Freshman ranked below the Sophs, Juniors, and Seniors, there were also gradstudents of every kind. Now, four years later, they raise their head with pride. They survived every class, party, term paper, project, roommate financial crisis . . . with hard work and dedication. Now they find themselves freshmen once again. Some will be freshmen in the workforce, some in graduate school. Whereever they go, they will go with the pride of knowning that U.F. has prepared them for the very best future possible.

THE YEARBOOK STAFF WOULD LIKE TO THANK STUDENT GOVERNMENT FOR ITS SUPPORT. THE TOWER IS AN AGENCY OF STUDENT GOVERNMENT. YEARBOOK CONTENT IS SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE TOWER STAFF. CONTENT DOESN ' T REFLECT THE VIEWS, OPINIONS, OR APPROVAL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, 5.G., OR THE STUDENT BODY IN GENERAL. 270 1 Closing, word From The Well, I find myself here at the keyboard once again, looking for the appropriate words to summarize another year of recording the history of the University of Florida. And, as usual I ' m writing this much later than I anticipated at the beginning of the year. This book, as our patient customers already know, is late again. But I hope none-the-less it will still be a valuable record of your time at U.F. This is my fourth yearbook. I started building in the Fall of 1989 with a 100 page " magazine " yearbook, hoping to build a tradition of large, colorful yearbooks at the University of Florida. There was a yearbook here from 1910-1974. But the yearbook closed from 1974-1983. In 1983 it emerged again, but ran into financial trouble in 1988 and 1989. When I got here the last remaining staff member was ready to close the book again. With the help of five dedicated people, I kept things going in 1989 and 1990. In 1991 we finally did a book to be proud of and the staff numbers increased to 10-15. The 1992 and this 1993 Tower are the product of a few dedicated student historians and journalists, not just the editor. Without their help none of these books would have been possible. I don ' t know that this book is the best of the four I have had the pleasure of being editor for, at least as far as content goes. Once again we ran into the familiar problem of a lack of time, materials, computers, money, etc. We did our very best to feature every and get as much as possible crammed into the book as possible. I am especially unsatisfied with the sports section. There are so many sports going on at UF, it is difficult to have enough people time to cover it all. I ' m afraid this year -we have once again neglected to properly feature all the teams of UF, all of whom deserve recognition herein. Our promise is to try harder, as they always do for the pride of the school. I would like to recognize and thank the most important member of my staff: the assistant editor was MONICA CURRY who single handedly managed the staff and oversaw production of this book. Her help allowed a 1993 Tower to be published at all. Also deserving of special recognition is our photo editor ED COMETZ who has been on staff longer than I have and whose dedication to providing us with quality photography also made this book possible. Other invaluable staff are recognized individually in their sections. Thank you all! Good luck to the Tower and its future staff. I hope you continue the tradition of recording the proud history of the University of Florida. 271 The 1993 TOWER YEARBOOK is the 11th edition of the official yearbook of the University of Florida. It was printed using offset lithography by Josten ' s American Yearbook Company in Clarksville, TN. The 272 page book has a trim size of 9 x12, printed on 100 pound gloss finish paper. The copy print style varies by section according to the taste of the section editor. Senior portraits were taken by Carl Wolf Studios. 1-800-969-1338. The four advertising pages were done by Collegiate Concepts Inc of Atlanta, GA, and was completed quickly and professionally on short notice. Our thanks to them! The TOWER YEARBOOK is published each year by a volunteer student staff. It is an agency of Student Government who provides the yearbook with 1 4 of its budget and an office. The yearbook is not a publication of the College of Journalism Communications. Additional copies or information can be obtained by contacting the yearbook at: Tower Yearbook, Box 64, 305 Reitz Union, Gainesville, FL 32612. 272
