5 College Freshman

Academics: It's a tough school but that just means that the school gains a better name for itself.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Great gyms and great instructors when attended group class (Which are included in the tuition by the way.)

College Freshman

Greek Life: Haven't rushed yet but I heard pledging is a fun experience in sorority life and crucial in fraternity life.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I wouldn't be able to say yet since I'm still a freshman, but so far so good.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Theres a huge variety of healthy options especially.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: UF is only fun during the fall. Other than that, its a drag. Mid town is boring and not fun at all.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is protected by UFPD and there are helpful residential assistants whom help with dorm problems.

College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid isn't something I can apply for due to certain circumstances. However, I've heard by word of mouth that it is helpful and the process runs smoothly.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There could be healthier food but as far as taste, there's many places to eat that are great!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus is beautiful. It has great scenery and the red brick is breath taking. The dorm I live in is Beaty West. Although it's small, its very cozy and comes with a kitchen and a bathroom and two rooms. (Two people per room). I love that the campus has two gyms. They are my favorite part of the entire school. The social atmosphere has a lot to do with Greek Life

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: So much better than living in a dorm. Only thing I have against it is there are some awful landlords running around but some are wonderful.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Much better variety than on campus but it's all pretty unhealthy.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: The parking is way to strict with far too high of a ticket price, there is next to no parking on campus even on the weekends for student activities. The police almost never notice drugs and drinking unless it is extremely obvious. UF is a tobacco free zone but people are smoking on campus all the time and never get caught, change something cause I'm tired of breathing in smoke.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: My father deals with this so I don't know what this is like.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Not enough variety, Why do we have four subways with three being within a two minute walk of each other?! Panda express is gross and unhealthy, you got rid of home zone which was the only reasonably priced place with real food. The dining halls are gross and have awful food. Do you even take students into consideration when you decide on restaurants?!

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The only good thing is it's close to class. The people you live with are awful and you end up far too close to them. I moved off campus the year following my life in a dorm.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Definitely the way to go. You have much bigger living areas off campus and I've heard it's much cheaper.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Like any good city it has tons of awesome restaurants with varying prices.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I honestly don't party at all, but my friends go out for most of the week and they love it.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have never had any problems with the Administration at UF.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Just fill out the FAFSA as soon as possible. I submitted it the day before it was due and because they received it three days later they did not give me financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's definitely not the worst food around, but it's also not the best. It's pretty good for the price though.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live off campus and therefore have no opinion on the housing at UF.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: most don't offer student discounts

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
