5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Great places to eat at off-campus. There aren't any student discounts I know of, but prices are relatively cheap since the people know they are mostly serving to students.

Athletics: Great school spirit when it comes to football. Tailgating occurs on nearly every part of campus and parking areas are evacuated prior to a game to specifically allow those going to the game spaces to park.

Greek Life: I'm not a part of the Greek life, but they throw great parties and it's a good way to make friends with other students.

3 College Freshman

Computers: It's college, you need your own laptop. However, there is free wifi that is exceptional and tech support services that come free (well free because it's included in tuition).

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking on campus can be hard to find, but most students simply take the bus system to avoid that. The police are strict on parking. So don't park where you're not allowed to and you'll be fine. Also, a car on campus isn't necessary, but it is convenient to have at times.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Manageable workload, just make sure to be prepared to study...quite a bit.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love my major, but it's no walk in the park. Being a biology major means taking most of the hardest courses.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's fair and I'm sure it's like any other college.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Best decision of my life. This is university that has a combination of everything. As long as you plan to excel academically, there's no reason not to love it. So basically, just be motivated to learn.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation isn't a problem. I live off-campus and never have trouble getting places that are off-campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Living off-campus is a great choice and at majority of students live off-campus. You can find good pricing and avoid parking issues by using the bus system.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Definitely a variety of things to do that anyone and everyone can find something to do that they enjoy immensely. Also, because it is a college town, there's a positive local attitude towards students.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Easy process, but only expect help if you're from an extremely low income household.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Except on rainy days, the weather is usual nice.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Getting financial aid is somewhat very easy and hard at the same time depending on the students' standing and status

Campus Dining: They are not open late at all. They all close early.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many dining places around my school which is nice, but late at night, you cannot go anywhere.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have not seen any students use drugs at my school

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is really not much to do off campus, after school.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Almost all the guys at my school are very attractive, fun, friendly, and outgoing.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't experienced any internship so far, but I am planning to do internship later in the future.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my program I am doing!

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The buses ride late often so there is no need for people to bring cars

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.
