3 College Junior

Scholarships: It is very difficult to receive any financial aid other than the Bright Futures Scholarship. The FAFSA does not always represent the core financial situation of the students, which causes some students to be declined needed financial aid

Overall Experience: The classes and the opportunities provided at this college has been phenomenal. However, in some classes there are teachers that are only hired for their research and do not know how to teach at all.

Greek Life: Some of the Greek houses are huge and extravagant. Some of the Greek participants come across very snobby and stuck up towards the rest of the campus population

Local Atmosphere: There is some stuff to do outside of campus but if you are not all about the bar scene then that really limits your options sometimes

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing close to the University is very expensive and parking is an issue. The further away from campus you get the more affordable and the more space you will have for parking and living.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It was academically challenging to attain acceptace into my program. While I'm not sure what is the most important aspect to getting accepted I will say that my advice would be to get above average on all of the statistics released from the previously admitted class. Also be sure to participate in as much volunteering and shadowing as possible.

Majors: We make about $12 an hour depending on where it is located. The staff pharmacists do a grey job of teach us by giving us the chance to do each type of responsibility we will have once we graduate. Overall it is a very valuable experience that will aid in the determination of which area we wod like to work in. We are required to do an 80 hour unpaid internship twice in two different settings by our school. Most of our responsibilities are those that will be ours once we graduate so we can learn to master them.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places to eat all over Jacksonville since it is a very large city paticurlaly in the riverside area

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Since my pharmacy program is among the most competitive to get accepted I believe that the value of the degree is higher compared to other schools. Students are provided with many oppouritnites for jobs and intern projects. There are research opportunities and guest speakers from all over the state we can network with to get jobs and internships from. Our program also hosts a career day every year where most of the potential employers come and do job interviews with students.

Some schools have certain advantages over others. Small schools give a feeling of community; large schools have lots of resources; private schools are ripe for close academic relationships with faculty; and state schools offer a good value. Well, UF is not your typical state school, and Gainesville is certainly not your stereotypical small town. Because this place is so big, it has all of the libraries, dorms, athletics, courses, clubs, and services you could want at a good price. But if you put forth just a little effort, you’ll find that the University also has more compassionate, down-to-earth professors, locals, and students that any small, private school could ever dream of having.

The best thing about going to a school like UF is that whatever you want to accomplish in life, it is probably obtainable through going to this school. You will never have to worry about not fitting in with anyone because the campus is a huge melting pot. Students are never bored on campus because there is literally always something to do with friends both on or off campus. And who wouldn't want to go to a school where the immense amount of school pride is literally unexplainable? It sure is great to be a Florida Gator.
