The narrator states that this is a video yearbook for 1987-1988 and that it will include news, special events, and sports.  He begins by mentioning that this was the year of the building with good and bad news.  The bad news included the burning of historic Johnson Hall and the sick building syndrome affecting the College of Veterinary Medicine building.  The good building news included the ground breaking for the Harn Museum of Art, the new wing (named after Al Flanagan) of the College of Journalism and Communication, and the construction of three new parking garages.  Various scenes around the UF campus and highlights of the year are shown such as the Plaza of the Americas, student events, graduation, the Homecoming parade and Gator Growl, and Gator Expo. Current research at UF is shown and described.  The tape concludes with the year in sports at UF with some football action shots (including an Emmit Smith touchdown run), the volleyball squad, and basketball.
