Gainesville is a multicultural gem wrapped in Southern hospitality. We’re international, yet intimate. Usually when you run into someone who happened to end up here, whether for school, a medical residency, or as a trailing partner, they will tell you that they originally didn’t think this would be a permanent home, yet here they are many years later. By choice, not by force. Something about Gainesville just sucks you in; maybe it’s those open arms that embrace strangers and welcome them unconditionally. Whatever the reason, we choose Gainesville. Or maybe, just maybe, Gainesville chooses us.
