Greetings, Gators!

It's that time of year again. The weather is cooler, the banners are up and the fliers are out.

That's right Gators, it's Homecoming Week!

No week embodies the spirit of the Gator Nation like Homecoming.

With classes canceled on Friday, the best way to celebrate Gator tradition and pride is to attend the nation's largest student-run pep rally: Gator Growl.

Gator Growl began many years ago and has since grown to become a major staple of Gator history. This year's show will not disappoint.

The entertainment lineup will surely be one to remember. This year, Gator Growl is bringing back a live band.

The Grammy-nominated Goo Goo Dolls will be performing live and singing many of its 14 top 10 singles.

In years past, the stage was at either the north or south end zones.

This year, the stage will be set up in the student section on the east end of The Swamp, offering both students and alumni the best view.

The Gainesville sky will also once again shine with fireworks, which have been gone since 2008.

As your elected leaders, we encourage you all to buy tickets for this great experience! This Friday night, we don't want you to miss out. Student tickets cost $15 and general admission tickets cost $25. Despite its recent struggles, the Gator football team needs our student support to help it on to victory against Vanderbilt on Saturday. Come support it at Gator Growl on Friday to cheer our Gators to victory. Come on, Gators, get up and growl!
