Campus activity has winded down in the days following the hectic exam period, as visiting students prepare to depart for the summer.
However, recent events continue to have the student and general population on edge.
Local authorities still report no progress in their search for leads, regarding the disappearances of multiple persons over the past several weeks.
To the relief of family and friends, many of the missing person cases appear to have solved themselves shortly thereafter.
The sought after individuals, who have ranged from students to faculty to visitors, have each turned up anywhere from hours to days after having been reported missing.
However, police continue to advise all persons in and around the Gainesville area to remain cautious until a culprit is found.
"We have no leads as of yet," remarked Officer Kendall of UF's on-campus security when reached for comment. "We will remain vigilant until the case is solved. Any persons out after dark should travel with a trusted friend, and keep in close contact with others."
There have been no eyewitnesses or leads to a suspect.
Any sightings of strange individuals on campus at any hour should be immediately reported to campus security at -555-4852.
_____________Campus News - StubProfessor Landing of the College of Sciences is currently offering open enrollment for a specialized series of courses focusing on natural medicinal sciences.
Interested parties are asked to visit Room 203 of the Science Building between the hours of 5:00 and 9:00 PM on weekdays to enroll.
No prior science credits are required, but experience in the field is preferred due to the specialized nature of the studies.
Applicants must visit in person. Entries will not be accepted by telephone.
For a pre-weekend evening, visitors will find the campus grounds continue to have a sparse amount of persons coming and going. While most are students making their way to and from evening courses, there are also visitors and assorted new faces examining potential schedules for the pending summer season, both old and young.
The weather continues to be unpredictable as ever. Sunny one moment, rainy the next. The evening appears to be overcast, with an occasional breeze passing through the campus, which has a more forested motif than most. It's rare to find a patch of land on University grounds without some form of plantlife nearby.
The high traffic halls are less populated at this time of day, but lesser ones such as the Science and Engineering building continue to be open well into the evening. The Smathers Library is the primary exception, which is always open until midnight.
