4 College Freshman

Facilities: The libraries are huge, the student hangout places are great and always full of people.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Not much to do outside of campus, but the atmosphere is great. People are friendly and the bus system is great.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There are chapter houses for Greek housing. Greek life allows people to gain a bigger circle of friends and entertainment.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Located close to archer road which has everything you could ever need or what on it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Financial aid came in right away. I took out another student loan and went in my account on time.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The variety and options of off campus housing is great especially price wise. However, the parking is hard to find since most of it is just street parking. Also it is sometimes far from midtown making it dangerous to walk home from at night.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Every student is so proud to be a gator and takes pride in our schools sports.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There are plenty of diversity on campus. You can see it everywhere as everyone has somewhere they can fit in. Diversity even exists among the same social groups.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The university of Florida is one of the most prestige colleges in Florida. This university offers a plethora of opportunities, involvement and organizations.

5 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The traditions are why I love being a gator. Football games, gator growl and a legacy the school has made will always be important to the students here.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Always have nice variety but the quality isn't so great and the servers give you very small portions.

5 College Freshman

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: UF tries to keep their students safe as much as possible. They are very focused on it and have many services to help students stay safe like the SNAP carpools at night, the blue lights on campus and many others

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The college embraces diversity to the fullest. Many activities everywhere encourage students to embrace and learn from others.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Its convenient and I get fed. At the beginning of the year the food is great, but as the year goes it gets more bleh. For me its mostly just convenience.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It's ok. If you want to be a BFA then you have to audition if not you can just do a general theater BA easily.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a general theater and psychology double major at UF. I love my theater program because everyone is so united and professors seek to help as much as possible. The program itself is not the greatest when it comes to academically but you get the experience and if you are a BFA they take you to New York for their senior showcase and everyone is usually very successful. As for psych, everyone is super involved and helpful. great assistance but it being a bigger college its harder to know everyone like in the arts department.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love UF. I have been missing it during the summer. I love the atmosphere, the school is beautiful and campus life is the best. So many things to do and there is something for everyone. There is such a big sense or unity and community with the entire student body and faculty. I am so happy that I get to call myself a Gator.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Its a college town, so its super fun, but mostly if you are a college student.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: UF is really big in Greek Life. Rush week is crazy on campus for girls and you can just see thousands of girls roaming campus in their rush attire.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options if you have a car. Bus systems are a bit of a hassle when going dinning off campus but its doable. Archer Rd has a pretty good set up and should be checked out.

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.
