Kent Fuchs

UF President Fuchs’ last message of the semester

The world watched in horror and grief on Monday as Notre Dame Cathedral burned. Her lead-covered wood roof and majestic spire collapsing into red flames as Parisians sang hymns on roads and bridges. Some 13 million people annually enter the cathedral. I have been one of those awestruck visitors on several occasions. Notre Dame is an exquisite example of French Gothic architecture and an unforgettable symbol of Paris, with its beautiful rose windows, flying buttresses and rib vault. Lost in the news of the past few days is the fact that Notre Dame is foremost a place for worship, particularly for Catholic Christians.

Kyle Cunningham, an Alligator columnist, and UF President Kent Fuchs, who has never had an iced coffee before, enjoy coffee together.

Coffee with Kent: A delivery to the UF President

As I began the journey from Library West to Tigert Hall gripping two iced coffees, I contemplated the whirlwind that my life had become in just a couple of hours.
