Now I’m a Gator. I got my doctorate in Nuclear Engineering at the University of Florida in 1994. I go back to Gainesville as much as I can and still stay active with my department at the university. When I was at school in 1988-89, UF was a middle-of-the-pack football school. Not much else except for swimming. UF has produced 32 Olympic swimmers and 15 gold medal winners including Ryan Lochte and Dana Torres who have each won seven medals. So, Gators can swim.
