There are so many wonderful things about being a Florida gator. Not only is the overwhelmingly accepting community amazing to be a part of, but everyone shows compassion and understanding towards one another-regardless of race, religion, sexuality, field of study, etc. Everyone helps one another out; together, we are one. Not to mention the exciting school spirit we all share and show in the stadiums! One of my favorite things about being a Florida gator is going to football games and participating in demonstrating our school spirit. The football stadium in particular is loud, animated, thrilling, and honestly such a great catharsis after a long week at school. My school is challenging, but rewarding.
