University of Florida Campus Visit

I am currently visiting University of Florida, and because I am visiting and don’t want to spend all of my time online, this post will be something more like a photo essay. This is the first full day of my visit. I hope to see more of the town itself tomorrow. For brevity’s sake, I’ll give you my first impressions of the campus as adjectives: big, green, beautiful, green, busy, green, wet, green, and odoriferous (in a good way–it’s a very distinct plant/moisture smell that I tend to associate with Little Rock, AR and Chatanooga, TN for reasons pertaining to my childhood). Yes, I’e been a bit starved of the color green. My little corner of the world has been in a drought for at least 13 years.

Library West (where most of the Humanities collections are held). There were several hammocks in the lawn/treed area in front of the library)

Speaking of Special Collections…this is the entrance.

Giant line of scooters. Apparently, lots of people here drive them because they are cheaper/easier to park. Lots of people also bike, which is cool.

Turlington Hall (conveniently located next to a Starbucks, bagel place, and more food…).

There will probably be more photo-posts to follow. Stay tuned.
