Local Atmosphere: the only thing in gainesville is UF

Weather: The biggest problem is when it rains. The campus is large and trying to get from one building to another can be a hassle, there are buses that can help with that though.

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many off campus housing options. There are 1/1's, 2/2's, 3/3's, and 4/4's available.

The location of the apartment complex you choose is going to depend on what stores and restaurants are available, however regardless there are countless options.

Living off- campus is cheaper than living on campus and buses are always running so if you do not have a car and need to get to campus it is not a problem.

Campus Dining: The dining halls are good, but sometimes you just get use to the food that they serve. There is a variety of options on campus to get good food as well as multiple places right next to campus to get food.

Facilities: At the University of Florida, Student Government has made it possible to keep Library West open for 24 hours which is really convenient for pulling all nighters.

The gyms on campus are awesome. South West Rec is open early in the morning and late into the night making it easy to work 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.
