3 College Freshman

Nightlife: A frat party is the only real underage nightlife and some clubs at certain times.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I'm vegetarian so I have to really eat at subways or the veggie patty or burger king. They do have a delicious salad bar but I rarely eat out because well it's expensive. I life off campus and I just buy my food from the grocery store. On campus a meal plan s super expensive.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love the computer science department they have a room to relax and work it's near the HUB

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus is free and it gets pretty full because most students use it for class because decals to park on campus are expensive and not guaranteed parking. I live off-campus and I take the bus. I find a car convenient but it's parking that kills.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are many international students. It's usually Arabic or Asian. I'm hispanic and I get a thrill when I hear a different language which is pretty easy to spot on campus.

4 College Senior

Diversity: I find that at Uf there are students from all kinds of backgrounds and ethnicity. I even find that I meet alot of international students more and more every day. I can truly say that sexual orientation is also not a great problem here. Many people are feel that they can be open about their sexual orientation and not feel like they will get bullied for speaking up. in terms of religious views I find that it is very diverse. I am constantly seeing new banners everyday about a new religious club that is having a meeting to discuss their mission and purpose. It is great to be a part of a progressive school

Off-Campus Dining: I truly enjoy off campus dining being that I live off campus in an apartment. Because Gainesville Florida is a big college town there are many options for us when it comes to dining. there are always new restaurants being built which gives us more options. Most of the gourmet off campus dining is very good. We have some chain restaurants but most students prefer the smaller restaurants that have better food.

Greek Life: On my campus especially, Greeks get great housing options being that they have very elaborate houses. Houses especially for the sororities are very nice. They are usually two story and have a lot of rooms in them. They have a big dinig hall area down stairs and some even have pools on their balconies.

Facilities: Parking on campus is horrid, and campus is huge. But, with that said i absolutely love the campus. It has an older, elite feeling to it.

Campus Housing: I enjoyed my roommates and the room itself, but it was not very spacious. Also, because of the age of the building, a lot of things that were dilapidated. It was very cold in the room as well, even if they temperature was changed.

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.
