    North Central Florida is known for its vast amounts of land, making it a great place to spend quality time outdoors. There are tons of various activities students can partake in when they are not studying, such as camping in Paynes Prairie, biking along Hawthorne trail or tubing down the various rivers and springs, located in High Springs, 20 minutes North of Gainesville. For those who are not so inclined to spend their time outdoors, the various local restaurants and bars do not disappoint!
