4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There is a huge Alumni base in Florida and it really helps students build connections when applying for jobs.

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

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.

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

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school and the professors really do care about the students. Our campus is a small satellite campus of UF and it is like a family. Our largest class size is 50 students. There are many opportunities to get involved and join student organizations as well as volunteering. I also like that we are given the opportunity to interact with staff pharmacists at shands.

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.

Off-Campus Housing: Most students move off campus after freshman year. There are a lot of options, from houses to apartment complexes, and at a wide variety of price ranges. Chances are you can find something close to campus for a reasonable price. Popular apartment complexes include Courtyards, Jefferson 2nd Avenue and Royal Village.

Diversity: UF definitely isn't the most diverse school in the country, but there is a good mix of cultures and backgrounds here. In addition, you can find a club or group for pretty much any race, religion, or sexual orientation if you'd like to.

Campus Housing: It really depends on the dorm. Some, like Hume, are pretty nice, with suite style accommodations. Others, like Broward, are a bit run down and traditional dorm style. However, the social atmosphere is the best at Broward, and if you're looking for a social place to live try to get in at Broward, Rawlings, or Jennings.

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.
