The ToxSquad was developed in 2016 in an effort to bridge that gap between scientists and community members and inspire interest in the fields of environmental health and toxicology. As a volunteer group composed of public health researchers, the ToxSquad uses a combination of online resources, educational events, and teaching opportunities to share environmental health concepts with locals in Gainesville, FL.

Reitz Union

The Reitz Union offers a variety of programs and services to students and the Gainesville community as a whole. Students can benefit from dining options, free student events, arts and leisure programs, and more.
