Our chapter was proud to initiate 56 bright, beautiful, new sisters in October. Throughout the year activities are planned that allow members to spend time together and get to know each other better. This years activities included roller skating, Halloween Horror Nights, Finals Frustration Fiesta at the end of each semester, and our annual Holiday Party. Our year was also full of social events with several fraternities on campus and our own Pi Phi date functions. Each social was a wonderful opportunity to get to know the gentlemen our Greek Community. All of the events brought sisters together for a memorable time. Themes included Water Wars, Biker Madness, Barbie and G.I. Joe, Fantasy Ball, Angel Ambush, and Hell ' s Angels Grab-a-Date. Our chapter is very proud to have a majority of its members attending the Univer- sity of Florida on academic scholarships.

Advertising 185 someone once said, " Some people succeed because they are destined to, but most people succeed because they are determined to. " In college, a student can face obstacles and achievements on the very same day, but only the drive to continue keeps them in the game. To many students, college is the opportunity to complete the puzzle of self-discovery. But the road to self can be a lonely one, even when there are 46,000 other students traveling along. Our goals may all seem different on the surface, but they all follow the desire to upgrade the versions of our lives for the future. We are a community of people actively seeking changes. The desire to change is present in all, whether it is academic and career enhancement or maturity.... It is all change. Nothing stays the same. And while the world and its people change to succeed, so did the University of Florida. The University has grown since its in 1853 and is currently the sixth largest university in the nation. The faculty and staff are dedicated to the common pursuit of the University ' s vision which is to educate and serve the through research and service. For UF ' s 100 year anniversary, one of the prominent building on campus, the Century Tower was dedicated to all the UF graduates who lost their lives in combat. It takes a lot of determination to the journey towards added success. Both, the University of Florida and its students share that vision. -Jaquelyn Gonzalez Upgrading to version - 2001 Colophon The 2000-2001 Tower Yearbook is the 19th edition of the official University of Florida yearbook.
