This promotional tape begins with a view of Century Tower and nearby buildings. Marshall Criser, the president of the University of Florida, states that there are better reasons for choosing UF than the pretty campus and the slick brochure. Students majoring in different areas make brief statements about how UF has benefited them. Some information is mentioned about the costs and the places one can live. As graduation nears a number of corporate recruiters come to the UF campus because of its fine reputation. At the conclusion of the tape Marshall Criser suggests that you imagine yourself ten years from now and think about what university could do the most for you. Criser suggests that the answer will be the University of Florida.
