3 College Senior

Majors: If I could do it all over again, I might have started in the higher level English classes sooner. I was told it was important to work my way up, but honestly the 3000-4000 level classes tend to have real professors and aren't that much harder. While some professors can be infuriating, you can at the very least respect that they know their subject.

Majors: English at UF is what you would expect. Reading can be a bit much at times, but for the most part you can be prepared through sparknotes. I tend to have two to four papers in each class, either two double spaced 10 page papers or 3-4 double spaced 4-5 page papers. Expect daily quizzes on your reading, but if you find a class that doesn't do that, jump on it. The class will be a nice break.

Majors: Getting into the English major was really easy. Getting into the university is the hard part. You just have to speak to the Liberal Arts and Sciences department and ask an adviser to make your major English. I declared it my second semester and there were no hoops to jump through.

Transportation: UF has a great campus and local transportation system. Every night a student-run organization drives students all night to and from campus.

Drug Safety: I hear about drug use but have never witnessed it. Alcohol is big around campus and is pretty relevant.

Campus Housing: Horrible. I doing worst than planned living on campus. It's expensive, staff members (Resident Assistants and Graduate Hall Directors) are mostly rude and talked bad about residents, and you are stuck on campus for the entire year and can't leave even you are on the verge of eviction.

Guys & Girls: Varies from person to person. I feel like those who are in fraternities and sororities can be pretty rude sometimes.

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.
