The Walking Station Guided Tours
July 7, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 amFree
The Walking Station will dispense short (10-15 minute) and long (15-30 minute) walking experiences, along with short literature on the topics of walking, the mind-body connection, and recovery, to foster individual and collective activities throughout Summer B. Each walking experience includes detailed instructions and a complementary creative exercise, including collage, photography, drawing, and more.
On Friday, July 7th, join UF Architecture professor Sarah Gamble on a 45-minute walk to actively explore campus! Participants will look and listen, engaging UF history and contemporary student life. Walks with professor Gamble will depart from the Walking Station at the Reitz Union Info Desk (Level 1) at 10:00 am and at 7:30 pm, during GatorNights, on July 7.
The Walking Station promotes the active exploration of campus, while fostering connection with the environment and each other. This project builds upon ongoing research through the School of Architecture investigating how walking can be used as a tool to foster intentional observation and engagement with the built environment and communities.
Sponsored by the College of the Arts Creative B Summer Program in partnership with the Office of the Provost.
