Tops in Fla., anyway.
Still fits the unofficial claim back when I first arrived in Gainesville: "Harvard of the South".
But the main thing here is that we BELONG on this list...we are in good company--and deservedly so.

Being a top 5 public university is a big deal. Being just outside the top 20 of all universities is a big deal. Throw in credentials as a top 3 athletics program with one of the top 10 alumni networks and there is plenty to be excited about. UF is also in the top 5 for wealthiest alumni from a public university and somewhere in the top of most donations to the athletics program.
