Most UF undergraduates appreciate the energy and talent that Dr. Steven Noll brings to the classroom; now one of Gainesville’s newest residents knows this as well. UF President Kent Fuchs visited Dr. Noll’s Florida History class on February 17 and learned about UF’s history in Gainesville and the wider historical context of Florida higher education during the Progressive Era.  “Although my own area of teaching and research is computer engineering,” Dr. Fuchs later wrote in a guest column for the Florida Alligator, “I have found the courses that made the most difference in my personal life have been in the humanities, arts and social sciences.”  We’re pleased to welcome our new president to the history classroom and although his busy schedule might not permit it, the History Department invites him to sit in on any of our other excellent courses–we’ll even knock down the tuition a bit for him!
