4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although certain courses can be overwhelming at times, this school provides its students with great opportunities. There's a huge variety of courses you can take and the professors are all passionate and qualified for the subjects they teach.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree from the University of Florida holds great value. As a student here, I believe we are provided with countless opportunities to further our education and prepare for our careers, no matter what our field of study is.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: In almost any city there will be issues crime and safety. I can confidently say that I have felt safe and secure while on this campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus has its ups and downs. I would say the perks of living on campus would be being extremely close to classes and dining halls. On the other hand, parking on campus is a headache and dorms are pretty small.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I personally am not involved in Greek life due to the cost, but I think it's a great way to meet new people and be more involved on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Whether you're physically play a sport on campus or not, every student here has great school spirit and support for the athletic teams.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being a student at the University of Florida isn't easy, but coming to this school was the by far the best decision I've ever made. It's great to be a Florida gator!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've grown and I am enjoying my college experience.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The quality of my degrees will be recognizable in the career world.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is always room for improvement both on the side of the student and security.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The life of a Gator is to bleed orange and blue.

Even the least athletic student gets caught up in sports.

If you don't play, you definitely watch and support the teams.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Finding sincere, affordable, and understandable tutoring is difficult.

Your average student will not make it.

It takes a determined fighter to complete the courses.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are very professional. Most of them are approachable, and I'm sure that all if not most are qualified to teach. The quality of classes vary, but that depends on a personal experience in the class. The University of Florida offers a wide variety of classes that one can take, it depends on what a person's major is and their interests. Class styles are traditional, hybrid and web-based. Class sizes are very big, average class size is about 200 students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Students can gain life-long experiences at UF. Internships and job positions are sometimes held in the O'Connell center.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I'm a 5'11 male so people don't really mess with me. I don't get harassed. However, this is not how my girlfriends feel around campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I will forever hold the fond memories I had in the dorm called Yulee during my freshman year in college. It was a great way to meet new people.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is okay, It's not all revolving around their parties (as everyone believes to be true). They do other things, but it's not that great either in that they don't really promote anything for the well-being of the community.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The SW gym is one of the best gyms that I know personally, it's up to date with its equipment.

5 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: There's something you can do every night of the week/weekend. Transportation usually works until 1-2 am.

5 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Midtown is right next to the school. It gets completely packed most of the nights. I prefer house parties though.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Workload is insane. Professors are always willing to help you. Registration process is very organized but they obviously give priority to juniors/seniors. Study areas are great.

5 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: I feel like everybody is very accepting when it comes to culture/religion/sexual orientation. You see many races as you walk on campus and it honestly feels like we all can express ourselves freely.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Classes are no joke for this school. They give us tremendous amount of work but I feel like it's worth it. Class sizes lower as you finish semesters. The variety of courses offered is infinite.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There are many emergency stations placed around campus. Most of the places have lights at night. I feel safe walking alone on campus but I'm still aware of my surroundings.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek students are highly involved in student life. They are viewed as party people but also do great things for the community

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.
