Gainesville is the largest city in north-central Florida and is home to the University of Florida and Santa Fe College. College students make up a significant portion of the population, and college reated events are important to the community. Because of its inland location, Gainesville experiences wide temperature fluctuation, with temperatures averaging in the low 70s at night and in the 90s during the day. Gaiensville has even been known to experience sustained freezes every few years. Gatorade was invented in Gainesville in the 1960s as a drink for the UF sports team, though their headquarters has since been moved to Chicago.
