Welcome Letter

Dear Guests,Lynda Reinhart

Welcome to the Stephen C. O'Connell Center at the University of Florida. We have developed this web site for your convenience and encourage you to visit us personally as well.

We are a multi-purpose public assembly facility offering a "home" to various academic, athletic, recreational and entertainment activities. Our clients include University departments, student and campus organizations, the University Athletic Association as well as Gainesville and surrounding communities. In addition to hosting daily educational classes, basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, swimming/diving events and track meets we are the site for concerts, family activities, trade shows, lectures and the University of Florida and community high school commencement ceremonies.

Not surprisingly, our building is constantly bustling with some type of activity. Through them all our staff believes that each person who enters the O'Connell Center should have a positive experience. We consider excellence as the foundation of every job function and are committed to our E² Pledge to "Exceed the Expectations" of our clients and patrons. Both our student and administrative staffs are proud to be a part of the O'Connell Center team and we are dedicated to serving you.

Lynda Reinhart

Director, Stephen C. O'Connell Center
