  • A young man decides on a college by watching a film (within this film) called, "Universities Throughout Florida." He sees: girls practicing archery and fishing at FSU; FAMU, "for the Negro youth of Florida"; UF; Bethune-Cookman College, the "center of interracial goodwill"; Stetson University; Rollins College; Florida Southern College and its Frank Lloyd Wright buildings; University of Tampa, "working for Americanism in practice"; and University of Miami. Then, it is the young man's first day on campus, and he is given a tour by the, "big man on campus." The projection print is a black and white copy. BA077 is the same film with slightly different scenes at the head and tail. Produced by Florida State Advertising Commission and Ball Productions of Miami.
