|Lake Alice and Baughman Meditation Center|
Lake Alice is a signature feature of the University of Florida campus. It is a proven sanctuary to alligators as well as many birds. At dusk, a colony of bats that roost in a nearby bathouse emerges to cleanse the sky of much of the insect life that the lake nourishes. A dusk outing to view the impressive cloud of bats leaving the house for their nocturnal sorties is a popular local pastime.
Baughman Meditation Center
The Baughman Center, a place of private meditation and public celebration, is an intimate shelter available to all members and friends of the university community. The 96-seat, 2,000-square-foot structure incorporates gothic-influenced design, strategic placement, and environmentally appropriate materials.
