10 Things University of Florida Students Do Best
The Gator Nation. As we like to say, it's everywhere. Let's be honest. You've heard of us. After all, how could you not? We're loud, proud and a little bit annoying when it comes to bragging about all the things we're good at. Whether it's athletics, research, academics, partying, sustainability — hell, we even get excited about being ranked best in having safe sex education. Here's what some of UF's own students have to say about what we think we're the best at. And don't forget, if you're not a gator, you're gator bait.

– Justin Bullard, senior

– Tanya Borachi, senior
