3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I will be living off-campus next year and the place I found is really cheap and a 10 minute walk from campus, which I love.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of off-campus dining options, but I don't have a car so it is often difficult to go out to eat.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have never experienced administrators being strict with me because I follow the rules.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties typically take place on the weekends. There is always something to do every night of the week. It brings the students together in a social atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office should offer more scholarships to students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a lot of fast food on campus. I would like for there to be more health food options. We also have P.O.D. markets, but they are very expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The major problem with where I live is the building is very old, so the elevators brake often. I live on the 12th floor, which makes it difficult to get to my dorm when the elevators are not working.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: All depends on where you end up and who your land lord is.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's great, only bad thing is a lot of places are in Butler, which is hard to get to without a car.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: There are many different administrations so it's hard to say overall.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't go out much, so I really would not know how to answer.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Getting grants and scholarships is like winning the lottery, there is almost no way to guarantee help even if you are very intelligent, active, and in need. There is no compassion from the aid office.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: all chain restaurants with low-quality food because corporations are cutting costs and trucking in foods from who knows where

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is extremely uncleanly carpeting and outdated furniture in the dorms. The price exceeds the quality.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I do not have a meal plan. I have a card that my mother put money on it for meals. I swipe it at various places on campus that I eat. I am a healthy eater and I do not but food that is not good for you. I do not eat fast food opt more for salads, wraps ect. There are many options on campus for me and getting food has never been a problem or an issue.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in an nice dorm / apartment with 3 other girls. We have our own bedroom which is great. There are 2 bathrooms. I am a little out from my classes but the bus service is excellent and it has never been an issue getting to my classes. The cost of where I am residing is a little more expensive than if I was in a dorm right in the middle of the campus. I am close to a gym and it is a quiet area that I live in. The post office is across the street and there is a nice lake that I can walk to that is a nice place to relax and study. The only thing is that places for me to eat that are on my meal card are right on campus and once I get back to my dorm I do not go back to campus to eat. I make alot of my own meals and a grocery store is not far from my apartment. All in all I do like it the I live on the edge of the campus.

College Student

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid or win any scholarships during my past semesters because my high-school pays for the classes.

College Student

Party Scene: I am not familiar with any of the above because I am a dual enrollment, high-school student.

College Student

Campus Food: I do not live on campus.

College Student

Campus Housing: Currently, I am a dual enrollment high-school student. I do not live on the Miami Dade College or Florida International University campuses.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It gets old after a while but you can easily get off campus food

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.
