A university of 49,000 seems like an unlikely place to meet people and make lasting personal connections. Truly though, all that number as big as 49,000 means is that there are that many more opportunities, opportunities to know 49,000 different faces and have 49,000 different of experiences. In February of 2004, Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes, students at Harvard University had the idea to start an online directory for college students that connects people through social networks. Modeled after a traditional university face book, full of freshman mug shots, the Web site became wildly popular among college students throughout the country. The University of Florida was no exception to the facebook phenomenon. In fact, at times UF has had one of the highest membership numbers of any member school. Facebook.com allows students to have their own personal profiles where they can post information about themselves, photos, party invitations and comments to their friends.

While the Tower Yearbook is in no way officially affiliated with facebook.com, the staff thought that the set up of the popular Web site would be a fun and effective way of taking a look at the Gator nation. Every year, we begin our next chapter in college anticipating and expecting the instances that shape us into the people that we are supposed to become. Just like that, every year brings us new surprises and takes us down unexpected paths; blazing new trails and exploring different avenues. Sometimes life doesn't turn out as planned and we walk away from our old plans and embrace our new realities. The next 400 pages are meant to encompass the realities of the 2005-2006 school year. -Leslie Veiga Friends at UF Allison Cullin Laura Maria Trimeshia Smiley Gonzalez Amanda Eckert Greg Edwards James Darlson Chad Anast Amy Crowe Jay Dompor Garrett DeRosset8 [Campus Uf«] Body Copy Tableofgntems My Photos______ Homecoming My Parties_____ My.

Create Your Own! It's difficult as a UF student to say, “There is nothing to do." In a campus as large and diverse as ours, there is always something to do. Whether it's studying in that quiet spot m between Larsen and Bartram Hall or attending an athletic event, or even participating Gator Nights there is never a dull moment. There are more than 60 intramural and club sports ranging from archery to weightlifting. Students also take advantage of the numerous outdoor courts and playing fields on campus, as well as those in the O'Connell Center, the Student Recreation and Fitness Center, the Southwest Rec Center and the Florida Gymnasium for indoor sports. UF consistently attracts world-class symphony orchestras, Broadway plays, operas and large-scale ballet performances. Among UF's artistic venues is a permanent collection of more than 6,000 original works, the largest natural history museum in the Southeast, musical and theatrical centers, two television stations and four radio stations. The learning experience at UF continues outside the classroom through the Student Activities Center. This is the hub for all campus organizations. It serves as an information source for involvement on campus. Many a leader has gotten their start on the third floor of the Reitz Union. The SAC is the home of the Student Government offices which are open to all students. Dorm life is also a big part of campus life. This is where many freshmen meet and make their first friends. It's an exciting experience getting to know different things and a variety of people you would normally not meet otherwise. Another huge part of Campus Life is the Gator spirit that encompasses and connects each student. Tradition is deeply rooted in everything at UF. From Procrastination to Homecomings, things haven't changed much in over 150 years. Campus life is a hustle and bustle of so many things to do. There are so many experiences to have, so many people to meet. -Diana Delgado Connection View More Photos of Campus Life This is your life. tat Above: -ifrom frt arcon a lt v ennx A itulrrti to (f|o, Pv trtnjurtv c-n . r«v »cp(} Cota tAa at P cv-cut bevrr je provdrr. fra ) rdkWS HUjrtl Abttra: iar Af'dnvjn t- » to fiwi t OOM word on W routr i but (Atn tv fnMStudents wait near Gate 13 of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to pick up tickets to the UF-Tennesse football game.

England? Australia? China? Well, the study abroad program is an exciting way to discover all these beautiful places while attending classes and getting school credit. Study abroad also gives you an opportunity to travel with a group, not having to worry about being lost or by yourself in a new country. Study abroad is also a wonderful way to have some hands-on research of other countries and their people. Instead of reading about them in books and through journals, students get a chance to live in these countries and interact with natives. Students many times get a chance to live with families while they are studying abroad. They are exposed to all aspects of these cultures daily. They learn about the food, music, arts, and much more. Being able to attend classes in a different country is also a very exciting experience. Students might be learning ordinary things, but the fact that they are learning in a country foreign from their own, adds that thrill. Whether doing it for the chance to explore another culture or just to get away from the routine, studying abroad is an experience like no other. The University of Florida offers many opportunities and programs that students can take advantage of. They can learn a new language, a new culture, and come in contact with a way of life different from their own. -Carmen Bustillo Back to Album Previous Next Carmen Balsa tries out her new fan as she rides on a train in Europe. photo by: Rachel Gomez Bryony Blood Friends at UF Allyson Cooper Ashley Awtxey My Photos Summer Vacation Create a Photo Album Have any photos to share?

At last we are free to enjoy time with our friends without the worry of homework and exams. Many students go back to their hometown to see family, old friends and catch up on much needed sleep. They take pleasure in long, sun-filled days at the beach, followed by cool, breezy nights; nights in which many enjoy summer movie releases. Students also take summer vacation as an opportunity to participate in internships related to their fields of study. This is a great way to get some work experience without running into the problem of it interfering with school. Some internships are paid, which allows for saving up for the next school year. Summer vacation is also a time when students take classes in order to get ahead in school. Some take the option of taking classes at universities back home while others stay around the UF campus. It is widely known that some classes are easier to succeed in over the summer than they are during the regular school year. Therefore, students take advantage of this during their vacation. No matter what they are doing, UF students look forward to summer vacation all year long. We look forward to that time when classes are over, finals are gone from our minds, and the only thing that matters is that warm feeling of summer fun. -Carmen Bustillo Back to Album Previous Next Matt Dean, Leslie Veiga, Allison Cullin and Melissa Bersach take in the sites at the nation's capital. photo provided by: Leslie Veiga Brittany Black Friends at UF Anesia Bums Sandy ChiuNy Photos Spirit Traditions Create a Photo Album Have any photos to share?

Upperclassmen show new comers how great it is to be a Florida Gator while teaching them the classic chomp. This exciting approach for new students and their families was not the way it was in the past. In the 1920s, freshmen were required to wear beanies, called rat caps, during their first semester. It was because of these caps that they were called rats. In addition to wearing the hats, freshman had to salute passing seniors and attend all athletic events while sitting in the cheering section of the arena, singing the memorized fight songs. If freshman decided not to obey these rules they had to go before a Vigilance Committee made up of 12 sophomores. Ironically, these students also monitored the upperclassman when and if hazing occurred on campus, mainly between freshman and seniors. Students don blue and orange paraphernalia at every game whether home or away. Traditional accessories include poofy wigs and light-up necklaces. And for the ultimate fan, full-body art is a necessity on any game day. Pride and support for the University of Florida can be seen any day of the week. Teeny toddlers sport orange and blue socks with matching shoes and senior citizens wear faded shirts from their generation. According to Student Government President Joe Goldberg, UF has the best fans. It is because of the faculty, students and alumni that UF is more than a name. It's a tradition to hold and pass along. -Sharilyn Wiskup Back to Album Previous Next Sophomore Matt Dean intimidates the enemy and shows his Gator pride as he paints his face and body in the beloved Orange and Blue. photo by: Leslie Veiga Friends at UF Aaron Leech Richard G»bbens [Campus Life] ISMy Photos You are connected to 48,000 people Create a Photo Album Have any photos to share?

The well known social networking service site for high school, college and university communities, connects students across campuses from all over. Finding long-lost friends, organizing a party and getting information on a dass by asking a student who is currency taking it are Just some of the ways students use Facebook. ’I was able to sublease my apartment using Facebook," Cristina Rivera, UF senior, sad. '"AM I did was make an album titled ■Super Sublease' with pictures of my room and apartment at different angles." Lest we forget to mention the dating side of Facebook. Facebook romances, while they don't always turn out for the best, are fairly common. Carmen Balsa, UF Junior, met her current boyfriend through Facebook. She says when they first met on Facebook, it wasn't with that intention, but she's happy it has turned out the way it has. “You can easily find and become friends with people who have the same interests as you which is probably why dating through Facebook is popular," Balsa said. “With my relationship, it sort of just grew into what it is now. I know other people who weren't as lucky." As of December 2005, Facebook has the largest number of registered users among college-focused sites with over six million US college student accounts created. While the site has some stmila-rites to MySpacc, it differs in account availability, user control of display content, real-world identity and, according to a survey of many opinions, overall neatness of appearance.

Gator fans can usually count on four things. Orange and Blue, and Albert and Alberta. The alligator duo visits everything from football games, to banquets to alumni fundraisers all in the name of UF spirit. Fans crowd around the Gator mascots with cameras and autograph books reminiscent of childhood trips to Disney work). Albert and AJberta love to give hugs to Florida fans of all ages and are always ready to make people smile and do the Gator chomp. Albert and Alberta get the most notice at the annual homecoming celebration. The mascots get top billing as they ride in a convertible during the homecoming parade. They are also the ones to kick off the festivities at the Gator Growl pep rally. They are always clad in their most formal attire for special occasions such as these. In 2003 Albert and Alberta were immortalized in bronze statues outside of Emerson Alumni Hall. These figures have become a prime photo spot for people visiting the UF campus, not to mention a fixture for graduation photos in cap and gown with loved ones. Albert is one of the most popular mascots in the country, and has made the Capital One All-Mascot team along with other SEC rival schools such as Tennessee, Auburn and Kentucky. Although, in their hearts, UF fans know that Albert and AJberta are the best mascots in college sports. -Leslie Ve»ga Back to Album Previous Next Albert and Atocrta nog along w«h the footban team as they bet out the fight song after a home wn. photo by : Onthu Sandoval Friends at UF Adam Wilson Daniel Maland Hope Wiggins Beatnz BlancoNy Photos Around Campus Create a Photo Album Have any photos to share?

Previous Next photo by: Leslie itega Previous Next photo try: Gnthia Sandoval Body Copy UF's campus is one of the most picturesque in the country. It is often called the Harvard of the south because of it's old-fashioned brick buildings. The alma mater gives a description of UF as students and alumni alike sing the words "‘shine forth thine noble gothic walls, thy lovely vine clad halls." Over the years the campus has undergone a variety of changes to become the place that Gators have come to know and love today. The 2005-2006 school year has been no exception. Dorms along University Avenue received a make over. The main attraction was the fact that dorms that previously had no air conditioning received units to cool them off. The main change that UF saw this year was the near completion of Library west. The project, which began in December 2003, was originally scheduled to open by January 2006. However the addition to the buildint took longer than expected, and the new and improved Library West is now scheduled to open sometime in the early summer of 2006 once all the books have been returned to the shelves. The renovations saw a 60,000 square foot addition to the building. The addition added a facade to the north side of the building giving it large picture windows and a fresh look to the south entrance. These changes should allow for more storage space as the UF library system accommodates more than 4 million books. -Leslie Veiga Back to Album Previous Next The prehistoric rock m Turlington Plata, affectionately known as the potato, is a pnme Spot for student demonstrations.

However, there are some days that are more exciting and eventful than others in our lives as Florida Gators. February 24, 2006 was one of those days. Diana, my partner in crime, and I set out from our humble office in the Reit2 Union on a trek to take pictures of as many campus happenings as possible, and boy did we find some interesting ones. Our first encounter was with the brothers of Zeta Beta Tau. They had spent the week rolling a giant beach ball around campus asking people to put their John Hancock on it. Each signature was worth a donation to the Children's Miracle Network. As we made it over to the North Lawn we saw that the Inter Residence Hall Association was having a kick off carnival for IRHA Week. We munched on the free hot dogs they were giving out and tried to win a prize by tossing some ping pong balls in a cup. Our luck failed us and we moved on to the next part of campus. As we made it to Turlington Plaza we noticed that a weekly Friday ritual was already underway. Students gather every Friday to play box ball amidst the tables, as we ducked out of the way of a wayward kickball we saw that the Student Government campaigning season was in full swing. Elections were to take place the following Tuesday and Wednesday and members of the Swamp Party, Unite Party and the Susan for Treasurer Campaign were courting student votes.

As we continued our health kick we headed over to the Institute of Hispanic Latino Culture where their healthy living week was taking place. Unfortunately, the week's final program had come to an end, so we just decided to sit around and talk with some friends. I heard my phone ring and answered a call letting me know that there was to be a Student Government presidential candidate debate on Turlington Plaza in IS minutes. Diana and I dashed out and went over where were we witnessed John Boyles and Jared Hernandez go head to head after a game of rock, paper scissors. Our day wasn't over following the debate. We attended a silent vigil put on by the Cuban American Student Association to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of two planes of the Brothers to the Rescue organization being shot down by Fidel Castro's government. We took a break after the vigil, because we knew that we had more fun ahead of us. That evening, we attended the RECURSO food and music festival at Rue Bar. We sampled cuisines from all over the world and watched cultural dances. Our final stop on the journey of this long day was the dub party being thrown ty the Unite Party at Velvet night dub. We had some fun as we danced the night away and tried not to think about what a long day we had just had. -Leslie Veiga Back to Album Previous Next 3us in Bings, Mackenzie Mono and Rose mane Oouston of the Susan for Treasurer Campaign watcfi the presidential debate on TUrington Ptaza photo by: Lest e Voga Friends at UF Amanda Stem JackieCahan Kellian McDonald Ny Photos Campus Hideaways Create a Photo Album Have any photos to share?

These are common places where the students talk, listen to music, and even play four-square. It seems like there is no where to go on campus that is not already filled to the brim with people. After all, there are over 50,000 people who could be at any ooe place at any time. Despite this, there are still places that a student can get away to and not be bothered with the hustle and bustle of everyday UF. Perhaps the best and certainly most serene place is Lake Alice. Located on Museum Road, it is a short walk or even shorter bus ride to a small hideaway. Different species of birds are commonly visible, hopefully to be seen instead of our mascot. Across from Lake Alice is the bat house, which is a favorite pastime for many of the residents in Gainesville. Every day at dusk bats fly out of the house. It was built because the bats were living under the concrete bleachers of the tennis and track stadiums. The bats were relocated in 1991 and immediately disappeared. However, the reappeared for an unknown reason m 1995 and have been there ever since. It is now the largest colonies of Mexican Free-tailed bats in the southeastern United States. Another area of relative serenity is the water fountains in the Murphree Area. People can enjoy the water just as they did in sprinklers as children. Jennings is another dorm that has a unique, calming feature. To one side, hidden by the shadows of the building, is a small pond with a bridge. It is a quaint pond hidden in the bustle of student life. When going back to an empty apartment seems dull, the Reitz Union is not the only place to hang out.

Today Homecoming at UF means Gator Growl, football. Gator Gallop and other things for students to celebrate being a gator. It's hard to imagine how it could be any different from what it is today, but it was. There was once a time when UF had no alumni—back in 1907, and homecoming was called Dad's Day where the students' fathers would meet the professors and enjoy special programs similar to the ones we enjoy today. However, it wasn't until the 1924 Homecoming that many of the festivities and traditions we have today came about. Homecoming began on the Wednesday of Homecoming Week with Blue Key members, which had been around since 1923, greeting the visitors and escorting them to their hotels and boarding houses. That evening the crowd would pack the school's gymnasium for a giant pep rally. Sounds just a little like Gator Growl, doesn't it? After recovenng from Wednesday's pep rally, Gator freshmen kicked off Saturday's festivities with a cross-country run. Wait a second, is this another familiar event? Gator Gallop' The run was followed by the ROTC military parade and motorcade of decorated cars. Hmm..., a parade, huh? After the parade, the crowd proceeded to Fleming Field where the Gators crushed the Drake Bulldogs 10-0. At halftime, the entire student body rushed the field and formed a human "F" while the band played, We Are the Boys' (remember, it was an all boys school!). Since then. Homecoming has proved to be nothing less than a week full of fun, hope and surprises. This year's celebration has been dubbed Gator Nation and the week's festivities began Friday morning with Gator Gallop. The homecoming parade, which follows Gator Gallop, featured some famous Gator grads including Emmitt Smith, former Florida running back and NFL all-time rushing leader, and Kendra Todd, winner of The Apprentice in season three. The Homecoming evening activities began with the Florida Blue Key Homecoming Alumni Reunion and concluded with Gator Growl. This year's pep rally featured Wayne Brady from Whose Line is it Anyway and Grag Giraldo, one of New York City's top comedians and a regular on Last Call with Carson Daily as the special guest. With out a doubt, Homecoming has become a thrilling string of events that no Gator should miss or ever forget. -Rachel GomezHomecoming Let the Gator Growl!

The event was held at the Reitz Union Colonnade where 1,000 students gathered to partake in the activities. "It celebrates the fact that we are different and I love that about Soulfest," said Business Junior Sandy Thach. Diverse platters of food, such as salad from the Olive Garden, BBQ, bread rolls, cotton candy and pizza, quieted the hunger of attendees. With food in hand, and in some cases, both hands, the students found a place to watch the entertainment. Groups and student organizations were given a chance to exhibit their talents through dancing, singing and stepping. Seven groups, including last year's Filipino Student Association winners, competed for a trophy while other dance groups performed as guests. The African Student Union, longtime performance veterans of Soulfest, became first-time winners as they claimed the trophy prize. Judges of the competition included Student Government President Joe Goldberg, Institute of Black Culture Director Darius Bostand, Director of Campus Programs Beth Waltrip. Creativity, precision and originality were some of the criteria the judges based their decision on.

In what some would call the "good old days" at UF, the freshman class was required to run in an event during '’Dad's Day." If any freshman didn't show up, his name stood out on the roll list - and the upperclassmen knew where to Find him. This year, more than 1000 people attended the Gator Gallop, which has grown and changed into a two-mile "fun run" down University Avenue. Run, walk or rollerblade, go alone or with friends; no matter the age, many completed the race. Whether you were an elementary school student or an experienced runner, the run was open to everyone. According to Brett Milke, Gator Gallop director and building construction sophomore, the success of Gator Gallop is no accident. Milke has to sit in the Blue Key office and register people all day long while he coordinates a team of staff members to table at heavily student-populated locations. Flyering, postering and tabling for several weeks had a lot to do with the number of attendees but word of mouth was what really sold the event. Part of the success of the event can be attributed to the participation of the loyal runners who run every year and the schools that took part in the event. The large number of both cohorts factored into a large percentage of the overall number of runners. However, there are also people who run Gator Gallop each year for the first time, and whether they are new to UF or just to the Gallop; they find it a positive experience. "It's great to know I'm a part of something like the Gator Gallop.

The crowd was in up-roar as Mr. Orange and Blue directed each side of the stadium to shout their represented color. This was the scene at Gator Growl, the largest student-run homecoming in the nation. Anne Imanuel, telecommunications graduate and president of Zeta Tau Alpha, reined as Homecoming queen. Onstage, the show began with talent show dancers and singers. Keynote speakers such as Student Government president Joe Goldberg and football coach Urban Meyer commemorated several UF sport teams. Guest comedians included "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn's" Greg Giraldo and Wayne Brady from "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" Greg Giraldo's routine proved to be provocative, poking fun at sexual innuendos and Christian values; where as Wayne Brady's improv act focused on the answered questions of the audience. After using a variety of words chosen by the crowd, such as flower, plusanimous and SpongeBob, Brady proved to be the same spontaneous king of improv that we know and love on TV. Some students couldn't make it to the event but were there in spirit. "I wasn't physically present but I astroprojected there and it was awesome ... no, no phenomenal," Ben Grove, political science freshman.

The Society of Auto Engineering was working on machines that could look through walls, and develop new diagrams of the human body. Whereas the Automotive society was giving free rides to alumni and their kids, in the go-karts they had built. To ensure the amusement of children of Alumni, the Homecoming Committee had face painting, and sign making to keep the children entertained. Students found the event pleasant. Sophomore and accounting major Samantha Lawrence, wanted "to continue the legacy of my family by attending the barbeque, since my parents are alumni." The Alumni Barbeque was a fun event for all, adults and children alike, helping to foster even more Gator spirit for the unforgettable football game against Mississippi State. -Logan Smith54 (h Homecoming The Game The week's homecoming events all lead up to the ultimate moment of truth: the Homecoming football game. Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, the Swamp, was swarmed with a sea of orange and blue gator fans. Vibrant and rowdy, gator enthusiasts proved to make the Swamp the toughest of stadiums for opposing teams. Florida, the 13th ranked football team, won its 17th straight Homecoming victory. This time the gator chow was the Mississippi State Bulldogs. After pitching the ball to Chad Jackson, Chris Leak, UF quarterback, was crushed into the turf by Mississippi State defensive back Kevin Dockery. With his flaccid arm laying nest to his side showing no signs of life, the game seemed to be over. The hit was hard and taking into account Leak's prior shoulder injury at the Alabama game, the game looked dim. "I really thought we were finished ... but come on, it's the Gators, of course we came back" said Tommy Thach, aeronautical engineering senior. The offense finished the game with 480 yards of total offense and 289 passing yards. Running back Markus Manson contributed 45 yards of seven attempts. Freshman quarterback Josh Portis carried the ball five times for 40 yards and was 3-for-5 for 45 yards and one pick. It wasn't all about the game; the halftime show entertained the crowd with the crowning of the Homecoming queen, Anne Imanuel. The Dazzlers, cheerleaders and the UF marching band made their rounds and hyped up the gator spirit. Overall, the game never failed to give the students what they wanted. -Cinthia Sandoval I really thought we were finished... but come on, it's the Gators, of course we came back -Tommy Thach A fan proudly places h s gator hat over hts heart during the National Anthem. Perfect and serene weather is reflected off this student’s sugfav Interconnected, these first-row enthusiasts smg and sway to "We are the old boys from Florida 'Gator fans constructed a mini shrine to the Gators in hopes of a win.

Along with its more than 20 majors, the college is also home to the School of Forest Resources and Conservation and School of Natural Resources and Environment. The college's programs cover a range of things from agricultural sciences and natural resources to social sciences, life sciences and preprofessional studies. The College of Agriculture was integral in UF's founding as a university. In 1884 Florida Agricultural College opened in Lake City. In 1903 Florida Agricultural College changed it's name to the University of Florida, that changed in 1905 due to the Buckman Act which consolidated state-funded institutions. The Florida Agricultural College combined with the East Florida Seminary and became the state school for white males in Florida. UF is still widely known for its Agricultural College. This year UF hosted the 11th annual National Agriculture Ambassador Conference. It was the first time in the history of the conference that it was held outside of its original home, San Obispo, California. CALS is also home to the IFAS program, which aims to to help Florida realize its maximum potential for food, agricultural and natural resource development and to contribute to the solution of social, economic, environmental and cultural problems of concern to the people of Florida.

U.S. News and World Report named Florida MBA programs among the top 25 public programs in 2006, with the Undergraduate programs ranked among the top 20 public institutions. One of the larger colleges on campus, the Warrington College had approximately 8,000 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students enrolled in its classes. "I think the study of business opens unlimited opportunities and can be applied daily to real world situations,” said Finance major Parker Ellis. Students pursuing business had many paths to choose from. Undergraduate programs were offered in Accounting, Computer and Information Sciences, Decision and Information Sciences, Economics, Finance, General Studies, Management, and Marketing. Online Business programs were also available, making it possible for thousands of students to be watching the same lecture via cable TV, internet, the classroom, or even miles away in another city or country. "I like having the option of watching lectures online, but I prefer to attend the actual class,” said Finance major Connor Sheppard. A Masters of Science with a concentration in Entrepreneurship was the newest degree program. It aimed at serving a variety of people with different backgrounds and needs. The College offered two undergraduate minors in Entrepreneurship and Business Administration However, many students were more than interested in Business- it was their passion. "I was m leadership positions all throughout high school and found that I really liked organizing events and managing people. It seemed only natural for me to study Management in college,” said Management major Brent Fernandez. -Christina Blood Bryan Hall was onpnaiv buft to house the UF College of Law.

The college Is apart of the Health Science Center, which also includes the College of Medicine, Nursing, Health Professions, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine; Shands Hospital at the University of Florida; and the University of Florida Shands Qinic. The publicly funded institution is a national leader in dental education, research and service. The college of Dentistry is placed 4th in federal funding research, and about 80 students every fall are accepted into the DMD program each year. The college renovated the west entrance which now is an attractive entrance and lobby area establishing a professional and friendly environment. Clinic 1A also underwent $350,000 renovation, which was funded by the Provost's Office. The renovation transformed Clinic A1 into a beautiful state-of-the-art facility. Throughout the years, the college has opened several satellite dental dinics around Florida. These clinics have provided patients with dental care and given students a well-rounded curriculum in order to further perfect the skill of dentistry. In 2004, the college of dentistry made huge strides towards diversity. The freshmen dass of 2004 induded 35 women and 19 percent of the population represented ethnic minorities. Graduating seniors of 2004 also made history. The Students who took the Florida Dental Licensure Exam passed with a 92 percent "first time" pass rate. This feat alone exceeded the college's expectation of an 85 percent pass rate and the unofficial statewide pass rate of 78 percent. These accomplishments are just markers for the future and the future for the college appears very bright. A College of Dentistry student cxpUns the coiegcs programs and services.

Today the college has become one of the leading design institutions in the United States, with more than 1,500 students m six independent professional disciplines and a historical preservation studies program. Dunng the month of December students m the historical preservation studies 5 program traveled to Mississippi and Louisiana I to Iearn about alternatives to deconstruction for historical structures damaged by Hurricane Katrina and Rita. For one week these S- students undertook restoration projections within this region, with the goal to save historical buildings. (Insert quote here]. The Rmker School of Building Construction is one of the best in the nation, and also is the oldest continuing school of building construction in America. Rinker Hall uses 55 percent less energy than typical buildings of its size and has received a National Award for Architectural Design excellence. The school of Building Construction also prides itself on giving students hands on experience to help develop their skills. "I recently headed up a phase of an antique caboose revamp for Archer. The project will ultimately turn it from an eyesore into a beautiful concession stand for the City's recreational park," said graduate student James Manni. The college offers several programs which take students to Hong Kong, Germany, Italy and several other countries to study construction of monuments and innovative buildings. For more than 80 years the College of Design has educated students in architecture, building construction, interior design, landscape architecture, urban and regional planning and a doctoral program. The college has given back to the community by designing charrettes, planning and service work. •Logan Smith Bu ng Construction students survey the tend on the UF campus as pert of a class project.

They are celebrating preparing teachers, counselors, administrators, college professors and school psychologists for roles in education. The college has grown from its humble beginnings in 1906. In 1934, Peabody Hall became the first permanent home of the teacher's college, as it was originally named. In the early 1940s P.K. Younge became the college's laboratory school. The name of the building was eventually changed to Norman Hall after Dean James Norman. Today the college employs 115 full-time faculty members, teaches over 1,900 students and offers more than 40 bachelor's programs advanced-degree programs within five academic departments. In April of 2006, the College of Education hosted a school improvement showcase that drew more than 300 teachers and administrators from over 14 school districts in North Central Florida. Instead of traditional professional development relying on outside “experts," this pioneering showcase featured an emerging "inquiry-oriented" approach in which practicing educators and UF education students collaboratively assessed their own teaching practices and shared new knowledge with each other. The Inquiry Showcase featured more than 70 breakout discussions and student poster presentations scheduled over five half-hour sessions, plus a closing presentation by UF Center for School Improvement Director Nancy Dana, the showcase organizer. -Leslie Veiga Teachers and administrators from across North Central Honda participate m a school improvement showcase hosted at UF. photo provxkd try: CoOege of education A member of the Student Reading Council, which explores new methods of improving chid literacy, explains what the orgaru atxyi ■s about. photo provided try: CoHege of education Chns Overstreet a German instructor, works to KOr per ate technology mto her three German classes.

Three years later, the first three students v received journalism degrees. £ Smcc then, more than 20,000 students have received journalism and communications degrees. 8 By the 1960s, UF's School of Journalism and Communications became the fastest-growing journalism program in the United States and the fastest-growing unit at UF. The growth was directly related to its national prominence as the college began dominating the annual Hearst Foundation's national collegiate writing competition. In 1967, the School of Journalism and Communications became a college, with Ralph 0. Weimer as its first dean. John Paul Jones Jr. followed as dean from 1968 - 76 and oversaw major enrollment growth and the organization of the college into departments of advertising, broadcasting, journalism and public relations. Ralph L. lowenstem, dean from 1976 • 94, supervised the construction of Weimer Hall and its dedication in 1981 as well as the Flanagan Wing addition in 1990. During Lowenstem’s tenure, the college s academic programs received top-ten national rankings, and the college enjoyed success In recruiting a diverse faculty and student population. Dean Terry Hynes succeeded Lowenstem in 1994. She continues the college's long-time commitment to combine theoretical conceptual classroom instruction with opportunities for practical application and to maintain the college's cutting edge m the use of new journalism and communication technologies. -College of Journalism Communication Web Site Photojoumafcsm professor John Freeman etpiams how to use the manual features of a camera. photo provided by: College of Journalism and Communications Dean Terry Hines recog-ncres alumnus of disbnction songwriter Johnny TiDotson at the colege's annual award banquet. photo prodded by: College of Journalism and Communications Seniors of the Cofcge of Journalism and Communications are recognized for the achievements and service to thccoiege. photo pronded by: Cotiege of Journalism and CommucahonsThe firs Amendment is integral to the professions of the college, that «s why they display the portions that relate to the freedom of the press on the wans of Weimer Mall, photo by: Onthu Sandoval Friends at UF Defencia Emperator Danni Bayard David ProNeNy Courses College of Law •LAW6430 Estates Trusts • LAW5700 Torts •LAW6302 Federal Courts • LAW6366 Trial Team The University of Florida Levin College of Law was founded in 1909 and today s one of the nation's most comprehensive and well respected law schools.

However, it took many accomplishments and promising students to make it what it is . today. Several graduates of the college have gone on X to win major awards, such as the Nobel Pnze. .V Marshall Nirenberg won it in 1968 for his work in deciphering the genetic code. He earned his £ BS from UF in 1948 and his MS in 1952, both of which were in zoology. The past and present professors of the college also have some outstanding achievements. One example is Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. She wrote The Yearling, a classic children's book that went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1939. She taught a creative wnting course while at UF m 1938. A second faculty member of the CLAS who won a prestigious award was Professor Donald Justice. He won the Pulitzer Pnze in 1980. He taught English at UF from 1982 until his retirement in 1992. Even with all of the prestige this college has already won, it is still expanding and its faculty and students keep trying to learn something new. The college is working on building the world's largest optical telescope on the Canary Islands. This project, with help from the Spanish government, is going to cost about $93 million dollars. The telescope will be used primarily for finding new planets around distant stars. The CLAS is ever-growing and changing. With the 12,000 students currently enrolled in the programs offered by the college, there are sure to be more awards won and exciting projects completed. The future of the college is in the hands of its current students.

The Gators women's basketball program accomplished several huge goals. The Lady Gators beat No. 5 University of Tennessee in Knoxville, in overtime. The Gators also delivered a blow to No. 2 Louisiana State University. These defeats are just of the few crucial games won this season. With a winning season the Lady Gators were ranked the No. 5 seed for the 12-team Southeastern Conference Tournament held in North Little Rock Arkansas. Unfortunately, the Lady Gators lost to New Mexico in the first round of the SEC conference. On the other hand, the athletes themselves also made personal accomplishments. For the third consecutive year, the Gators placed in the Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll. This season the Gators had a team -ecord of seven recipients, all of the eligible players. In January, Marshae Dotson was named the Southeastern Conference Women's basketball Freshman of the Week. Another remarkable player on and off the court was three time captain, Sarah Lowe.

Sadly, the football team did not. However, the men's swim team did that and more. The team finished second in the SEC Championships and won first at the Purdue Invitational. This team is not a fluke either. Since the new coach, Gregg Troy, joined the Gator staff, the team has placed second in the SEC five of the past six years. One of the shining stars of the 2005-2006 season was Ryan Lochte. Last year, Lochte was the NCAA 200 meter backstroke champion. He was also a member of the 800 meter freestyle team that returned with three of the members for this season. Furthermore, he is considered the best individual medley swimmer that the University of Florida has ever had. Lochte swam this event in 1 minute and 41.71 seconds, a new Gator record. The competitive edge of the Gator swim team can be in part credited to their coaches. Head coach Gregg Troy has been coaching the men's and women's swim team at the University of Florida for six and seven years, respectively. He was named the 2000 and 2002 SEC Men's Coach of the Year for his work with the Gators. Together, the Gator swim team dominated the 2005-2006 season and will continue to dominate in the future. dive. Philip Wolf Pncc Do Hay Regina SturmTop Left: Photo by Brad Person.

One of the top swimmers from last year, Vipa Bernhardt, returned to have a fantastic season. Bernhardt, who was a member of the 2004 Olympic swim team for Germany, was honored at the 2005 SEC Women's Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She is a five-time SEC champion, as well as a 19-time All-American. This year, she was the SEC champion in the 100 and 200 meter breaststroke. She is also the record-holder at UF for both of those events. As far as the regular season with the Gators, Bernhardt had 22 first-place finishes. However, Bernhardt and the other lady Gators excel out of the pool as well. Bernhardt was named Outstanding International Student through UF's College of Fine Arts in 2005. Seventeen of the swimmers and divers were named the to 2006 Southeastern Conference Winter Academic Honor Roll, including Bernhardt. Gregg Troy was bead coach for the men's and women's swimming team this season. In his seven year span at UF, he las been the coach for 40 SEC titles. Since he has come on the scene, the lady Gators have been undefeated against Florida State (8 0), South Carolina (6-0), and Tennessee (7-0).

Body Copy Welcome to UP! It's now time to get involved! Whatever your interests trust us...there is a club for you! From academic honor societies to leadership honor societies to cultural organizations there are over 600 registered organizations. Some are funded by student government. Student Government funds about 50 dubs. The student senate and cabinet are both great ways to get to know people and get involved. UF's senate has some of the most analytical student minds on campus which handle about 11 million dollars that come from activities and service fees. With this money they bring us the free rides on RTS, free gym membership. They also provide the happy medium between the students and the administration. Student Government has agencies such as the ACCENT speaker's bureau and Student Government productions that bring us all the great speakers and concerts respectively. There are also unions for all the major ethnic cultural groups on campus. Such as, the Black Student Union, Hispanic Student Association, Asian-Amehcan Student Union, Pride Student Union and the Jewish Student Union. All these groups are powerhouses that bring together their respective groups to become a strong force on this campus. Smaller dubs, such as the Paper, Rocks, Scissors club or the Scrabble dub cater to student's hobbies. Others such as the Falun Gong Society or the Animal Activists of Alachua cater to spedfic issues affecting our community and our world. Home to all these organizations is the Student Activities Center on the third floor of the J. Wayne Reitz Union. The SAC is where the Student Government offices and agencies reside. Some organizations also have offices where the executive board holds office hours and members can go socialize and find out more about a respective organization. Aside from academics, it's important also to get involved within the different aspects of the campus. UF's organizations usually provide a network for students as well as a home away from home. -Diana Delgado Connection These are your groups. f m MU Wtn uM r«rc«x » » • V I C« »r in tf aoorwui rt rn « ' Co Nn’ ‘lit • » Uy n »moc t )n tct « «c ic » «t $ ewfrrtw W (At.h u»» V r » A « -»V I P »" » ________________ View More Photos of OrganizationsMy Groups Organizations Friends at UF wmm Members of the University of Florida Fightin' Gator Marching Band watch the score at the Homecoming game against Mississippi State.

Events are ahvays open and free to the public, so there is no excuse to miss what may be a once m a Hctimc opportunity to sec a prominent figure of society. -Cinthia Sandoval View Discussion Board Join Group Report Group Photo 1 of 3 | Back to Profile | See All Photos S«tuhs Society for BiomatenaH Student Health Outreach Team Amputee and college wresttng star Kyle Maynard uses some of Ns moves off the mat to demonstrate his sioRs despite disatoAty.Holocaust survivor and author Elie Wiesei speaks about his We and hit experiences to a crowd at the Philips Center.

Further dehring mto the local music, SGP succeeded in introducing many of the student body to a much needed experience with the Gainesville music scene. Though broad market research and an open discussion, SGP aims to meet the diverse tastes of the UF community. Those distinct preferences can be seen in the list of performers this past school year has seen; artists including Hot Hot Heat, the Black Eyed Peas, Of Montreal, Velveteen Pink, Sbghtfy Stoopid and Yerba Buena. Since its establishment in 1969, SGP has brought a wide slate of musical and comical acts to Gainesville. Famous acts such as the Dave Matthews Band, Outkast, Kanye West, Rascal Flatts, Reel Big Fish, Busta Rhymes and Cher have all graced the stage at the O' Dome. Over the years, UF students have explored nearly every musical niche through SGP events. SGP continues to operate at the bonk of musical innovation.

Body Copy Greek life at the University of Florida is a popular option for many students. Approximately 4,700 of current UF undergraduates are members of either a soronty or fraternity. At UF, students have the option of joining chapters that fall under one of four governing councils: The Interfraternity Council, the Multicultural Greek Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council and the Panhellenic Council. The 1FC consists of 25 fraternities, the majority of which have privately-owned chapter houses. IFC chapters host recruitment at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. The MGC consists of 5 fraternities and 6 sororities that are culturally based nature. There are Latino, Asian, South Asian, multicultural organizations. MGC organizations traditionally have membership intake once a year either in fall or spring. The National Pan-Hellenic Council consists of 5 fraternities and 4 sororities. These are historically-black organizations that each typically hold membership intake once a year, either fall or spring. The UF Panhellenic Council consists of 16 sororities which all have privately-owned houses and participate in recruitment the week before classes begin in the fall semester. Several Panhellenic chapters also have limited informal recruitment during the spring semester. UF Greeks strive for scholarship, service, leadership and community involvement. The UF Greek grade point average has traditionally been higher than the all-UF student average. Each semester members of the Greek community strive to advance UF and Gainesville area communities through service and philanthropy. Many unique leadership opportunities are available to members of the Greek community at the chapter and council levels. In addition, to these leadership opportunities, members of the Greek community hold a significant number of the prominent leadership positions on campus. Having one of the largest and strongest Greek communities in the nation, the 4 councils and 61 chapters on campus work year-round to plan events on the chapter, council, and community level to strengthen the bonds between their members. •Diana Delgado Connection These are your brothers and sisters tm v m ml Hn c til Vrorty (TfWt 9 » w Mt n Um. lattr of Mi D i D«J A®«r 9 AfepK - View More Photos of GreeksFraternities Sororities Greeks Friends at UF Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity flip through a scrapbook as their organization tables on the Reitz Union Col-lonade.

The Interfraternity Councilis responsible for ensuring communication among the fraternities, as well as coordinating specific events, including Fall and Spring Recruitment, the IFC New Member Education Speakers and other Greek activities. The Interfraternity Council awards the President's Cup and Service Cup to the individual chapters that excel in athletics and community service respectively. IFC also acknowledges individual and organizational successes at the Greek Awards Banquet, where the Greek Man of the Year and the Buddy McKay (best overall IFC Chapter) are awarded. All events are planned and executed in the spirit of the four pillars of the IFC which are Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Community.

The MGC currently has give fraternitites and six sororities. Although ethnically based, the Multicultural Greek Council embraces men and women of all different backgrounds. MGC organizations take pride in their diverse membership. The MGC was founded on November 15, 1999 to unite and serve the ethnically-based Greek letter organizations at UF. The founding organizations were Lambda Theta Phi Fraternity, Lambda Theta Alpha Sorority, Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity, and Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority. Since then, seven other organizations have been added to the council: Gamma Eta, Lambda Alpha Upsilon, Sigma Beta Rho, Delta Phi Omega, Kappa Phi Lambda, Pi Delta Psi, and Theta Nu Xi.

Each of the nine NPHC organizations were designed to foster brotherhood or sisterhood and serve as conduits by which action plans could be formulated to influence social action and change in the Black community. NPHC organizations have pledged to devote their collective resources and services in an effort to enhance communities throughout the nation and world. Despite the diversity inherent in the individual groups, the NPHC provides the forumand impetus for addressing issues of mutual concern. Through collaboration, the nine affiliate organizations have discovered that the effect of their educational, social and economic programs were greatly improved by uniting and coordinating efforts through the NPHC. panneiienic council The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), founded in 1902, is the umbrella organization for 26 national and international women's fraternities and sororities. Members are represented on over 620 college campuses in the United States and Canada and in over 4,600 alumnae associations. The established chapters and alumnae associations comprise over 3.6 million sorority women in the world. When you join one of the 16 National Panhellenic Conference sororities at UF, you also become a member of the Panhellenic Council. The UF Panhellenic Council is the governing body for the 16 NPC socorities, and is responsible for organizing activities of mutual concern and interest to all of the sororities. The Panhellenic Council is made up of elected officers, 14 divisions, and delegates from each of the 16 chapters. fftrcnca Owcpo Cruder M»»Wx iNpYP lav vwot tucutwe VP Evan Nerton Attl HcrrtxnhC VP V Hn,tt4rceOt ActMti«VP r wfT«oo Comrnmcabon VP Gatfcy L«on rntnotVP Amanda Baron222 [Greeks] Fraternities Sororities Alpha Chi Omega Chapter Information Nickname: Alpha Chi Founded Nationally: October 15, 1885 Founded Locally: April 2, 1949 Colors: Scarlet Olive Green Flower: Red Carnation Symbol: The Golden Lyre Mascot: Angel Philanthropy: Peaceful Paths Chapter Size: 140 Enri Andrews Marissa Arauho Jen Armstrong CMlm Ayilt Jenna Backer Enn Bailey Dana Barack Kalce Beaver Taryn Benson losfce Boucher Kelly Boyle Robyn Braun Elizabeth Burkhard Rebecca Crccract Sarah C ouch Angie Davis Jenny DeMarco Katetyn Dentine Aubrey Ocsgum Lauren Deubert Anarwj Dionis Jenny DuRant Lucy Fedonm Anne Foss Katie Furman Stephanie Fusco Michele Gage Megan Gagne Jactyn Garcia Tracy Gau AJexis Georgous Heather Grareer Elizabeth Guro-nch Enn Higgns JiB Horn .

Do you friend everyone that you meet or speak to? Or, are you more particular and require that you know someone's first and last name without having to search for them? Let's face it, here at UF the word friend has become a verb, just like table and flier. Everyone does it. Here's how, directly from the guys at facebook: You can invite anyone that you can see on the site to be your friend. Just use the "Facebook Search" to find people you know and then click on the "Add to Friends" button on the right side of the screen. A friend request will be sent to that person. Once they confirm that they actually are friends with you, they will show up on your Friends List. There are 48,000 friends to be made at UF. They major in everything from Anthropoloty to Zoology. They are part of every organization, and hold too many jobs to even count. They are the ones you put your arms around to sing with at the end of every third quarter at the Swamp. Some of them are in your favorite memories and others you have yet to come across. Just remember how you met them so you can provide accurate friend details. Oh, and be careful who you poke, because that can get tricky. •Leslie VeigaMy Friends People Friends at UF Students peruse a University of Florida Tower Yearbook at the Spring 2006 Grad Bash at Emerson Alumni Hall.

Truly though, all that number as big as 49,000 means is that there are that many more opportunities, opportunities to meet 49,000 different faces and have 49,000 different types of experiences. One year later, it seems that 49,000 just isn't enough as you take that last final, and pray that you pass that last class. 49,000 photos snapped, jokes made and nights too crazy to remember. Hold on to those crazy college days as life takes you where you're meant to go. Look back at UF, at what you did here and what happened during your time at the Swamp, and know that your experiences were unique ones among the 49,000. Now go off, and build the Gator Nation. -Leslie Veiga Friends at UF The Tower The Swamp The Squirrel The Little Man The Swamp The Turlington Preacher The Chomp The O'Dome The Editor (Closing] 415r Tower Yearbook 1 Colophon The 2006 Tower Yearbook was produced by a student staff at the University of Florida and covers from June 2005 to May 2006.
