College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had the opportunity to participate in an internship program, but there are several advising workshops given to students to prepare them for the future.

College Freshman

Majors: I haven't participated in an internship program, but I plan to in the future.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The college of liberal arts and sciences is a great college, which includes my major, biology. The biology major has a marvelous staff who are always available for advising and supporting their students.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are very experienced and offer a wide variety of exercises to master the subject area. The workload is bearable and necessary for success in the courses.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the school spirit on campus. There's not a day that goes by that I don't spot someone on campus donning a UF shirt or some variation of blue and orange. I've also met so many friends here. The students and professors that I have met so far are very friendly!

College Freshman

Majors: I'm not in a program at my school, but I hope to be.

College Freshman

Majors: I do intend on gaining experience for the nursing program through an internship. My concerns aren't that heavy in finding an internship since we have a hospital close to UF that has a very good relationship with the school and its students.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus. I live in an apartment off campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not that strict. I've never encountered any school policy that adversely affected my academic or social life.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most of the people I've met are very amiable and outgoing.

4 College Freshman

Computers: I've only used a computer on campus for printing and it's very convenient for those of us who don't own one. However, owning a personal computer is pretty necessary. Almost all of my assignments are online.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I only feel slightly threatened during the night when I have to walk home late from a night class or a night exam. Otherwise, I feel very safe on campus.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Your experience with academics really depends on the subject and who your professor is. Some professors are very lax and make the class enjoyable and an easy A. Other classes have professors who mean well, but aren't that amazing with communicating ideas. However, all my professors thus far demonstrate their compassion for their students and their successes.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I'm only in my first year of college, so I can't provide information that will enlighten anyone's comprehension of what it's like being a nursing major.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not very involved in sports at all, but a couple of my friends are and I've heard great things. Football is obviously popular at UF. The school spirit is really what makes it!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Don't see much of the drug scene of campus. Well at least I don't.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The same you see everywhere. You see different types of groups.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: School policies are fair and not too harsh if you follow the rules.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Each programs has its pros and cons. Getting into programs are difficult but it is doable.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The advisors here are here to help. They are very knowledgable about internship but you need to be willing to put in the work as well.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus housing. According to my friends, I'm happy I'm not living on campus. The only perks is how close their classes are, but that is pretty much it.

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.
