Off Campus Life seeks to build a bridge between UF and the City of Gainesville, and we want you to be a part! How we choose to interact with our neighbors, our coworkers, the people on the RTS bus, the check-out clerk at the grocery store, and even the person who mindlessly cuts us off in traffic has a profound effect on how others will choose to interact with us. In a world where you can be anything—be kind! Help us cultivate a community of kindness by nominating people for the Golden Flamingo Award. This award is designed to recognize neighbors, friends, classmates, and community members when they go above and beyond to be good citizens. Each month Off Campus Life will choose to recognize those “golden flamingos” in our flock with a Flamingo prize pack! Both the selected nominator and the nominee will win the prizes! Our kickoff event is designed to build a culture of kindness that extends far beyond the University of Florida campus, but begins when our students show kindness to one another. At the event, students will learn how to submit nomination for the award, have a chance to take photos with their friends, and practice what it means to be “golden”.
