Take a minute and reflect back on your first year on campus. While some were living up new found freedom, others were dreaming about what graduation would be like. It’s hard to believe four years have flown by, but instead of being sad undergrad is over, take this last week to finish off your college bucket list.
After you’ve picked up your cap and gown, the next step is graduation pictures. There are tons of great spots around campus including the Swamp, the Albert and Alberta statues on University and the Bull Gator outside the stadium. Get your best friends together or take solo pictures, either way you want to document all our hard work at UF!
Decorate Your Graduation Cap
A graduation tradition here at UF is decorating your cap. Some past favorites have included blinging the cap out with jewels or adding some orange and blue flair. No matter what you choose, it is a create way to showcase your personality and be spotted among the sea of graduates.
Celebrate At Your Favorite Nightlife Spot
Head out for a night on the town at your favorite nightlife spot. Whether you’re a midtown or downtown girl, there are plenty of places to celebrate in style. Going out in a college town is much different than an outing in a bigger city, so while you’re still an undergrad go to your favorite stomping grounds for a few more great nights.
Attend a UF Sporting Event
During the last four years, UF has earned championships in sports including football, basketball and gymnastics. What better way to end your undergrad than by supporting your school at a sporting event? Spring sports like baseball are in full swing and love seeing orange and blue in the stands!
Paint the 34th Street Wall
Leave your mark on Gainesville and UF by painting the 34th street wall. Not only is it a Gainesville tradition, but it is a fun (and cheap) activity to participate in with your friends. Have everyone throw in a couple bucks for paint and brushes and create your masterpiece. Don’t forget to capture the finished product!
