    About Me
    I'm a proud alumnus of UF. I enjoy helping students and their families learn more about the University of Florida with useful facts and information. I'm also proud to share my experiences as a student and my life living in Gainesville after graduation with my family.

    Favorite Campus Location

    Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. There have been many memorable moments and great football games in the Swamp. This is one of many great places on campus to truly be a part of The Gator Nation and connect with the Gator community.

    Favorite UF Fun Fact
    UF has not just one Heisman Trophy winner, but three: Gator athletes Steve Spurrier (1966), Danny Wuerffel (1996), and Tim Tebow (2007).

    Admissions Advice
    Look at our application as if it was an interview. Be sure to let us know of how much of a leader, learner and thinker you are inside of the classroom and in your community. Use all of the character space that you can to show us all of the great things you have done and all of the potential you have in bringing your talents to UF's campus and community.
