Kids in Alachua County have already been in school for over a week -- but it’s the University of Florida’s first day today.

Thousands of students walked around Plaza of the Americas on UF’s campus this afternoon, many of them—unsure where to go.

“I’m anxious but also excited because there are so many things to do but I don’t know where—or how to get to any of it,” says freshman, Khoi Vu.

But many students we’re just excited to be there.

“I’m more than happy,” says freshman, Dionna Shine. “This has been my dream school since I have been in elementary school.”

The University Of Florida ranked #2 on Forbes “Best Value Public Colleges” in 2016.
