We just went to the Universities first Bee college at their brand new Bee research lab. There is a lot of passionate people there. The campus is large and a delight to walk around, so much history, yet new innovative learning.

I visited the PK Yonge Library of Florida History to further research an herbal medicine topic. The staff (James Cusick and Michele Wilbanks) were very helpful and pulled many sources for me prior to my arrival. This library is beautiful and a true treasure.

The University will give out visitor parking passes which allows you to park in the parking lots and the garages. This is not an option on game days however. UF is a non motorized campus so no cars directly on the campus.
