    ·       Easily send crime tips to UF Police (even anonymously) attaching pictures, audio and video

    ·       Walk with an Entourage: Send your route + ETA to your friends & family so they can ensure you arrive at your destination safely.

  • Student Government Town Hall for Newell Hall Renovation

    Since 2009, students have listed inadequate study space on campus as an obstacle to their academic success at the University of Florida. In response, Student Government lobbied for and obtained $10 million in funding from the State Legislature to transform Newell Hall into a much needed, innovative learning space.

    Students will have the opportunity to provide input on this project at Student Government’s Town Hall for the renovation of Newell Hall on Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. in Holland 285B located in the Law School. For your review, we’ve included the findings of a Student Steering Committee, which was tasked with reviewing hundreds of pages of research to better define what an innovative, learning space entails. We look forward to hearing your input on this important project!    ...
