Greek Life: What Greek life? Not my scene

Health & Safety: THere is a police presence but too much area to cover effectively. Better to have someone to walk to and from transportation with.

Athletics: GO GATORS! Athletics are pretty big here at UF. It's called the "Gator Nation" for a reason.

Academics: Amazing academic school with endless possibilities and unlimited resources. It is definitely harder than almost all other schools in Florida, but it is definitely worth it.

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of varieties for off-campus housing that range from 1 bedroom to 4 bedroom apartments and condos. The price ranges are mostly average with some that are very expensive. It is easy to find an apartment if you plan ahead and allow yourself time to look around and lock down a contract.

Nightlife: Nightlife is fun and available for students who are 18 and above. However, you can only drink if you are above 21. There are many clubs around downtown Gainesville but they all close around 2 am.

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.
