The ‘CensUS’ wants you!

Dear students:

The University of Florida is well known for prestige in academics and athletics, and now it’s your chance to continue this success by participating in the 2010 Census. The census information provides more than $400 billion in federal funding each year for the next 10 years. This funding goes toward transportation, education, health care and more. The census also determines the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Hopefully you are familiar with the “You+Me=CensUS” campaign. This is part of an awareness campaign by the 2010 UF Bateman Team, UF Administration and UF Student Government.
The 10-question census will arrive in mailboxes in March. Each off-campus household should fill out a single form and mail it back by April 1. Campus residents will receive instructions from their facilities’ staff. You will not be included on your parents’ form unless your full-time residence as of April 1 is with your parents.

It’s essential everyone participate so that the city and The Gator Nation receive deserved funding. For more information, visit
www.2010.census.gov.

Go Gators!
2010 UF Bateman Team
