You are now a member of the Gator Nation. You've been accepted to the University of Florida. Don that orange and blue with pride. This is a sign that you're going somewhere in life, somewhere good that doesn't involve Seminoles, Tigers or any other mascot unlucky enough to be Gator Bait.

So now what? High school's over with. You're now a small fish in a really, really big pond. And it could get a little complicated from here on out. So this is a site for you, dear Baby Gator, to help you survive your first year at the University of Florida. Here's some information I've compiled for you about what you can expect, having been in your position a few years ago. I learned from the most unforgiving teacher of them all: experience. Think of this as your cheat sheet, the only one you'll be getting in college.

Go Gators!
