Greek Life: I do not personally know much about Greek life, but Greek life is just viewed as another student organization.

Overall Experience: UF is a very competitive university. Some consider it the Ivey of the south. I consider it the best kept secret in colleges. You can not beat the experience academically and the campus vibe is incredible. There is nothing like the atmosphere during game day. To top it off I am only 5 hrs away from home and can visit whenever I want.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have learned that a degree from the University of FLorida is one of the most valuable degrees in the country. Students with a degree from UF are looked at as highly qualified candidates with real world application.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
