Picture this: You're lugging heavy boxes up the sidewalk headed for residence hall check-in when a tall, friendly gentleman wearing glasses steps up, grabs your suitcase and says, “Hi, I’m Kent Fuchs. I’m the president. Welcome to UF!” That scene played out again and again as part of Fuchs’s on-campus residential experience, during which the president and his wife, Linda, lived in Room 2026 in Jennings Hall for a week.
Fuchs said the goal was to connect with students and make them feel welcome. He and Linda helped students and their families move in, toured campus housing units and even took part in a shaving cream fight. See it all here.
