"Especially if You Lived Here"
I spent some of the greatest years of my life in Gainesville. I attended the University of Florida from 1991-1996. I graduated with my BA in Geography in May, 1995. My college years included many highs and lows, great friends, many good times, and of course, Gator Football.
Like many alums, I still adore the Gators and try and visit as often as I can, but not as often as I'd like. I have yet to bring my husband to a game, though I have managed to bring him around to being a fan.
I wish I had more pictures to upload, but I haven't yet taken the time to scan them. One of these days...
