Studd picked up his second CCSA Coach of the Year after leading the FGCU women's swimming and diving team to its second consecutive CCSA Championship in 2010. The Eagles finished 194.5 points ahead of second place Davidson last season to take home the title. Under his guidance, 15 athletes earned All-Conference accolades including seven gold medals while 22 earned All-Conference Academic team honors. Once again, the team was recognized as a Scholar All-American Team by the College Swim Coaches Association for the third year after posting a combined grade-point average of 3.35. In 2009, Studd's squad combined for 21 new varsity records and 12 new freshmen records. They also brought home every possible piece of hardware from the CCSA Conference meet. The Eagles ran away with the CCSA team title by over 200 points and Studd was honored as Women's Swimming Coach of the Year. The Eagles also produced the Rookie Swimmer of the year as well as the Conference swimmer and Conference Diver of the year. Studd's guidance led to 13 CCSA All-conference first team members and 16 All-Conference Academic team members. The squad was recognized as an Scholar All-American Team by the College Swim Coaches Association for the second consecutive year. Studd's first head coaching season was highlighted with a second place finish at the Costal Collegiate Swimming Association (CCSA) conference championships where his team was first amongst all Atlantic Sun squads. Along with earning more gold medals than any other school (seven), the Eagles produced the Rookie Swimmer of the year and the Conference swimmer of the year. His guidance led to nine CCSA All-conference first team members and 11 All-Conference Academic team members.

late 1800s, Tootie McGregor and Thomas & Mina Edison began the beautification of Fort Myers. Imported Royal Palms were planted along Riverside Drive, later renamed McGregor Boulevard. These magnificent Royal Palms, some towering at 75 feet, give the City of Palms its nickname. Incorporated in 1886, Fort Myers is the center of a popular tourist area in Southwest Florida and the seat of Lee County. It is located about 120 miles south of Tampa at the meeting point of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caloosahatchee River. Fort Myers was the frequent winter home of Thomas Edison and is the current home of the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins spring training camps. The first known resident of what is now Fort Myers was Manuel Gonzalez, a Spaniard from the province of Asturias, who came via Cuba in the 19th century. Fort Myers, built in 1850 as a military fort to fend off Seminole Indians that were massacring the area's few settlers, was named after Col. Abraham C. Myers, who was stationed in Florida for seven years and was the son-in-law of the fort's establisher and commander. In 1858, after years of elusive battle, Chief Billy Bowlegs and his warriors were persuaded to surrender and move west, and the fort was abandoned. Billy's Creek, which flows into the Caloosahatchee River and runs between The Beau Rivage Condominiums and Alta Mar, was named after a temporary camp where Billy Bowlegs and his men awaited ships to take them west. The fort was abandoned until 1863 when a small number of Federal troops re-occupied the fort during the Civil War. In 1865 the fort was attacked unsuccessfully by a very small group of Confederates. After the war, the fort was again deserted. The first settlers arrived in 1866, but it wasn't until 1882 when the city experienced a significant influx of settlers. By 1885, when Fort Myers was incorporated, it was the second largest city only to Tampa on Florida's west coast south of Cedar Key - even larger than Clearwater and Sarasota, also growing cities at the time. Fort Myers first became a nationally known winter resort with the building of The Royal Palm Hotel in 1898. The real spark of the city's growth was the construction of the Tamiami Trail Bridge built across the Caloosahatchee River in 1924. After the bridge's construction, the city experienced its first real estate boom and many subdivisions sprouted around the city.The Florida of days long past, with unspoiled white sand beaches, exotic wildlife and lush subtropical foliage, still can be found on The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel in southwest Florida. Known as Florida's tropical island getaway, this paradise is a favorite vacation spot because of its feel of old Florida that no longer exists in many areas. In addition to the beautiful natural environment, active travelers are pleased to find an abundance of golf, tennis and watersports, as well as some unusual attractions. Lee County embraces nine distinct areas, each with its own unique character. Best known are Sanibel and Captiva islands, connected to the mainland by an alluring three-mile-long causeway and, to each other, by a blink-and-you'll-miss-it bridge at Blind Pass. 44 Famous People that have called the Fort Myers Area Home Patty Berg (Founding member of the LPGA) Larry Bird (NBA Hall of Famer) Mike Ditka (NFL Hall of Famer) Thomas Edison (Inventor) Henry Ford (Founded the assembly line) Jerry "The King" Lawler (WWE wrestler and announcer) Rocco Mediate (PGA golfer) Deion Sanders (Former NFL/MLB Player) Steven Spielberg (Film director/writer) Algernod "Plies" Washington (Rapper) Sanibel is known worldwide for its shelling. More than 400 varieties of shells litter the beaches, and particularly can be found after an especially high or low tide. For most visitors, however, shelling is merely a delightful excuse to enjoy hours of sun worshipping along some of the finest shoreline in North America. Interesting shops, restaurants, and art galleries dot the road from the Sanibel Lighthouse to Tarpon Bay Road. On the way to Captiva Island, located toward Sanibel's northern tip, the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge is home to many exotic species of birds and plants. A four-mile drive with access to walking and canoe/kayak trails offers outstanding wildlife viewing opportunities. The refuge occupies more than half the island. The main attraction on Captiva is that there are none. Many people wile away the hours in one outdoor endeavor or another. It was here that Anne Morrow Lindbergh, wife of the famous aviator, wrote her best-selling book, "A Gift from the Sea." Further south, Estero Island, home of Fort Myers Beach, long has been recognized as one of the "world's safest beaches" because of its gently sloping shoreline. The sand is particularly soft and white, akin to powdered sugar. Especially suited for family vacations, Estero offers every imaginable water toy, from windsurfer to catamaran and parasailing. Numerous marinas operate boating and fishing charters. Local restaurants benefit from the catch, which generally includes red snapper and grouper. Inventor Thomas Edison and his friend, automobile manufacturer Henry Ford, decided early on to make their winter homes in Fort Myers. Today visitors tour their neighboring estates with Edison's botanical gardens, laboratory and museum. During Edison's winters in Fort Myers, he and his wife Mina hosted well-known house guests like industrialist Harvey Firestone, President Herbert Hoover and cereal king John Harvey Kellogg. Henry Ford purchased his quaint home, "Mangoes," in 1916 to spend the winter months visiting Edison. The two properties were separated by a fence the two families named "The Friendship Gate." Other in-town attractions include the Southwest Florida Historical Museum, downtown river cruises, and the Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium. Shell Factory in North Fort Myers and Eden Vineyards, the country's southernmost bonded winery, to the east are also popular stops. For the sports minded, public golf courses and tennis courts make southwest Florida some of the best playing turf in the state. 45 FLORIDA GULF COAST This is... Florida Gulf Coast University, a member of the State University System of Florida, is a comprehensive university created to address the educational needs of the rapidly growing Southwest Florida population. Classrooms showcase state-of-the-art multimedia instructional systems that feature Internet access, document cameras, and audio and video presentations. The history of Florida Gulf Coast University is a visionary one built on support for providing higher education opportunities in Southwest Florida. Area citizens began the initiative to bring a state university to this part of Florida, and their early requests were quickly supported by elected officials at the local and state levels. With support from the Florida Board of Regents and the full Florida Legislature, a new university was born. The Board of Regents formally recommended in January 1991 the development of Florida's tenth state university to be located in Southwest Florida; and, in May 1991, then Governor Lawton Chiles signed the legislation authorizing the new university. Southwest Florida's support for a university was never more evident than during the next year, when private landowners offered more than 20 gift sites for the university campus. In early 1992, the Board of Regents selected the site offered by Ben Hill Griffin III and Alico, Inc. of 760 acres of land located just east of Interstate 75 between Alico and Corkscrew Roads. Roy McTarnaghan was named founding university president in April 1993. Initial staff were hired that summer, and the university's academic and campus planning began in earnest. Plans for the first phase of campus construction were unveiled in February 1994; and shortly thereafter, the Florida Legislature named the institution as Florida Gulf Coast University. The vision for the university was one which would address emerging higher education needs for the 21st century, including the use of technology in the learning/teaching process and multi-year contracts as an alternative to faculty tenure. The Board of Regents approved an agreement in May 1995 with the United Faculty of Florida allowing FGCU to offer a contract system for faculty members. Campus groundbreaking was held on November 28, 1995, with more than 600 people participating in the celebratory event for Southwest Florida. With aggressive academic programs and campus development schedules slated to culminate in an opening day of August 25, 1997, the early staff and faculty were busy meeting deadlines every month. Inaugural degree programs were approved by the Board of Regents in March 1996. The FGCU Foundation, a private fundraising arm of the university, gained extraordinary financial support for an institution which at the time could only be seen on a drawing board. Faculty throughout the country were attracted to FGCU for the opportunity to offer higher education in new and innovative ways. 46 46 Back-To-Back CCSA Champions The first FGCU student, Mariana Coto, was admitted in January 1997; and she participated in the historic ribbon cutting on the university's August 25, 1997 opening day. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools awarded FGCU accreditation candidacy later that year, and a comprehensive self-study was launched. The first commencement was held in May 1998, with 81 FGCU graduates. In August 1998, the first phase of student housing opened. In September, Founding President McTarnaghan announced his intention to step down on May 1, 1999. FGCU's second commencement ceremonies, held May 1999, marked the last official act of the founding president, as well as the graduation of 417 students. The Board of Regents launched a national search held during the spring and summer for FGCU's second president; and the university received official notification in June 1999 that it had achieved, in record time, accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. In July 1999, the Board of Regents named William C. Merwin as FGCU's second president. President Merwin arrived on campus for his first day on September 16, 1999. He immediately initiated a highly participatory strategic planning process for students, faculty, and staff to carry the young institution to its next stage of development. The Florida Legislature established governing boards of trustees for state universities in 2001, and 13 members were appointed to the Florida Gulf Coast University Board of Trustees. This governing board is providing leadership that is community based, responsive to the market, and nimble. In January 2007, FGCU President Bill Merwin retired, and Dean of the Lutgert College of Business Richard Pegnetter was named Interim President by the FGCU Board of Trustees. A national and highly competitive search for FGCU's third president was launched. On the university's 10th anniversary of its opening day - August 25, 2007 - the FGCU Board of Trustees selected Wilson G. Bradshaw to serve as the institution's third president. President Bradshaw has the important responsibility of leading FGCU into its second decade of development and service as an institution offering access to quality higher education in Southwest Florida. As FGCU moves forward, student applications and admissions are dramatically increasing; campus construction of academic and support buildings remains aggressive; new undergraduate and graduate degree programs are being added; our athletics program has moved from NCAA Division II to Division I; the FGCU Foundation's private fundraising continues to be successful; and the excitement level for FGCU's future is high. 2010-11 Women's Swimming & Diving Media Guide 47 47 RS & H Architects Solar Field Florida Gulf Coast University, Mitsubishi Electric, and Regenesis Solar Power completed construction of a 15-acre solar photovoltaic array (December 2009) that produces approximately 85 percent of the energy needed to operate FGCU's Engineering and Business School buildings, as well as AB-7, the newest science laboratory and classroom building for the College of Arts and Sciences. The University's total reliance on Florida Power & Light Co. is reduced by 18 percent, thanks to the power generated by rows of solar panels that tilt and rotate as they "follow" the sun throughout the day. The field is one of the largest solar photovoltaic projects for an academic institution in the United States. With this two megawatt installation on the FGCU campus, the university demonstrates its long-term commitment to renewable energy, benefiting the environment for generations to come. Student Union The Student Union is the community center for Florida Gulf Coast University. Since its completion in 2004, it has been the mission of the Union to serve students, faculty, staff, alumni and guests. The Student Union offers a variety of programs, activities, services and facilities that, when taken together, represent a well-considered plan for the life of the university. Many of the essential services a student needs are located in just one location, so whether you need a bite to eat, school textbooks and supplies, or just a place to hang out, the Student Union is the place. The Student Union houses an array of services and facilities including: Einstein Bros. Bagels, the University Bookstore, Real Food on Campus at The Perch, Student Government, Campus Involvement, The Vice President for Student Affairs, the Dean of Students, and Campus Reservations. The addition to the existing Student Union building, which totals approximately 20,000 square feet, will help the University keep pace with student population growth and provide new student spaces to compliment use of the existing building. For example, the addition will include new space for a large student lounge area that will allow students to socialize or just relax from the pressures of their academic studies. ON CAMPUS Campus Living Sights from one of the fastest growing educational environments in America. 48 Back-To-Back CCSA Champions Lakefront The Outdoors Program at Florida Gulf Coast University encompasses both the Waterfront and Outdoor Pursuits. The Waterfront offers a variety of activities ranging from motorized water sports on the lake, disc golf, kayaking, sailing, and more! Outdoor Pursuits, better known as "OP", offers a variety of trips and programs for students, faculty, and staff year round. Cross Currents Albert Paley's "Cross Currents" is hard to miss. Located in the Central Plaza of campus, the nearly 22-foot tall sculpture is big, bold, and colorful. This 17,000-pound structure plays with positive and negative shape. Though abstract, the jagged teeth of an open-mouthed alligator, shards of sunlight, the fringe of palm fronds and the rough silhouette of a palm trunk are visible. The bright colors are representative of Florida: the pink of flamingoes, blue for the sky and gulf, the reds and oranges of sunsets. South Village and SoVI Dining Everglades and Biscayne Halls are part of the first phase of the South Village residential community. Everglades Hall opened fall 2008 and Biscayne Hall opened fall 2009. These 5-story, 124,000 square-foot residence halls will each house 406 first-year students. Everglades and Biscayne Halls are home to the First Year Residential Experience (FYRE) Program, designed for first-time in college students who are motivated to have a successful transition to college life living. Adjacent to Everglades Hall, students will find fresh dining options at SoVi Dining. SoVi, or South Village Dining, is a separate, stand-alone facility operated by Aramark. All appliances are Energy Star compliant, and all food selections are freshly prepared right in front of the customer. 2010-11 Women's Swimming & Diving Media Guide 49 49 UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT SNAPSHOTS: Florida Gulf Coast University's Board of Trustees unanimously selected Dr. Wilson G.
