The University of Florida in recent years has been known for its outstanding athletic programs, specifically football. The Gators have been atop college football rankings for the past four years. Now, their athletic programs are granting them top environmental rankings as well.
The Florida campus is home to the first and only Platinum LEED-certified athletic facility in the nation and recently added two energy-efficient LED video boards atop the north and south end zones at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
