Gov. Charlie Crist will be visiting UF today to speak with big names on campus.
Crist's afternoon consists of back-to-back meetings with UF coaches Urban Meyer and Billy Donovan and UF professor Lonnie Ingram, according to a press release from the governor's press office.
After meeting with Meyer and Donovan, Crist will head to UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, known as IFAS, to talk with Ingram, his research partners and other UF officials, according to the release.
Crist, who joined California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in his green efforts this summer, will tour the laboratories where plant material is converted to ethanol to be used in cars as an alternative to gas.
The release stated that this morning, Crist would tour areas damaged by the February tornadoes.
Later, he'll stop by science, physical education, health and fitness, and government classes in The Villages, Fla.
Right before his meetings at UF, Crist will present a check from the Florida Disaster Recovery Fund to the Lake and Sumter Emergency Recovery organization, known as LASER.
