  • UF Mobile Safety App By TapShield

    One of the biggest priorities of this university - above research and education - is campus safety.  It is our responsibility and our duty to students and their families, as well as faculty and staff, to ensure that the University of Florida is a safe place to study, work, play and live.

    In our efforts to ensure that the University of Florida is a safe place, Student Government launched the UF Mobile Safety App by TapShield to provide an extra layer of protection on campus.   

    The UF Mobile Safety App pairs mobile GPS technology with existing campus safety infrastructure, and allows students to summon help from anywhere on campus in just a tap. The app features the ability to launch a direct phone call to university police, two-way messaging between users and dispatch, a timer option designed to provide security while walking home or going for a run, and yank technology, which activates an alert by yanking headphones from the device. Each alert includes the user's real-time GPS location and profile information to university police. 

    Students can download the TapShield app by searching for "TapShield" in the App Store or Google Play.

  • Proposed Constitutional Amendment

    Our campus-wide, student body elections begin tomorrow, Tuesday, February 17th and will last until the 18th. While lots of attention has been given to the Student Senate candidates and Executive Ticket candidates running, those aren't the only things students will be having the opportunity to vote for. There will also be a Constitutional Amendment, which if passed, will be added to the Student Government Constitution. 

    Read the text of the amendment below:

    Should the anti-discrimination policy of Student Government be updated to include genetic information, and read as follows? “Student Government nor any organization that receives funds shall not discriminate with respect to race, creed, color, religion, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, marital status, national origin, political opinions or affiliations, genetic information and veteran status as protected under the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act or any other classification as provided by law.”

  • Rechargeable Battery Packs Now at Marston

    On April 26, Marston Library was officially equipped with rechargeable battery packs for students to check out. For free, any student can use one of these EnergizerXP 18000A chargers for a maximum of two hours per rental.

    The chargers are compatible with most cell phones, tablets and laptops and are capable of charging 3 devices at once.

    This initiative is the result of a Senate bill authored by Allocations Committee Chairman Elliot Grasso. Grasso had been working very closely with the library chairs in order to make this project a reality for students.

    “Students deserve to have sufficient power sources of their devices while studying in Marston Library. The rechargeable battery packs assist students in achieving academic success by enabling them to have access to fully charged devices while studying,” says Grasso....
