University of Florida holds Involvement Safari for new students

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -- The students are back at the University of Florida and the Inter-Resident Hall Association is helping students to get engaged.

It's called the Involvement Safari and it helps campus organizations and clubs get in front of students, so they can see everything UF has to offer.

It's geared toward new students, transfers, international and graduate students who are starting their first semester.

The IRHA says they wanted to do the safari because the new spring students may not know about all the different things they might be able to do.

"There are some organization fairs throughout the fall but there really aren't any during the spring, so we decided that spring would be a great time to do a new one," said IRHA Business Manager, Seth Piatek.

It wasn't just booths and tables. They also brought out an inflatable bouncing alligator slide!
