4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's hard sometimes to figure out what you're doing sometimes but once you know it's great.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school really is a wonderful place for all kinds of people. We have amazing athletics, stellar art programs, a great law school, so many clubs, there really is something for everyone. Football games here, as well as other big school wide events like gator growl really bring the student body together and everyone feels so accepted and involved. This school is a beautiful campus and is kept so nice. Not a day goes by where I don't see something being cleaned or the lawn being maintained or something being planted. UF has has so much to do on campus and off, theres restaurants and trails, and sporting events open to the public and art courses and so so much more. My favorite thing about this place is that it makes you feel at home even when your home is hundreds or thousands of miles away. Everyone is so welcoming and (most of) the professors are fantastic and go above and beyond to make sure everyone is getting the most out of each course. There's a niche for every person, and another great part of this community is that these separate niches are able to come together. The jocks hang with the theatre kids. The skaters with the art kids. The honor roll students with the greek life. We all come from different places and backgrounds but once we step on this campus we are all Gators.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At the two-day Preview session (an orientation of sorts in that we were given a tour of the university as well as met with several faculty members and student leaders to handpick our schedules for the 2015 fall semester), I felt thoroughly provided for in my educational and emotional needs. Everyone from the university was incredibly nice and thoughtful, and I look forward to getting to know my fellow peers as I move in the 22nd!

Overall Experience: My overall experience so far has been great, there's always an amazing atmosphere and the students on campus are always encouraging you to get involved. There are many clubs fit to different interests and it's hard to feel left out. You get a real feeling that everyone around you cares and wants to help.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I came to the University of Florida with the expectation of it being a large party school. I came for the school not the partying. However, my friends took me to some fraternities and I soon learned that the greek life isn't all about partying, there were some kids in the fraternity I am pledging that have perfect 4.0 GPAs. The lifestyle at UF isn't to party, it's to get good grades, but to not forget that you should be having some fun as well.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at school was okay. I had trouble with liking my chosen major, my roommate and I didn't get along even though we were friends coming into college, and the transition was hard. Overall, the school itself was fine. Classes were somewhat difficult but I was able to acquire help and make good grades. Most of my struggles during my first year were more so personal than based off the school itself.

Overall Experience: The University of Florida is a great school! I am very happy with my choice for my undergraduate studies and I cannot wait to see what the next four years will hold. Not only do I feel at home when I step foot on campus, but I have also met many students from all over the world. The teachers have great reviews and are very well educated, and the clubs and organizations are phenomenal.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year of college has been a life changing experience. I learned a lot living by myself without my parents supervision. My University is filled with wonderful people, all from various types of cultures.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love it here, though looking into a 2 year program first is never a bad idea.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The University of Florida is a top engineering school in the southeast and provides many different disciplines of engineering, including aerospace which is my major. It offers extremely challenging coursework that requires tireless hours of study to master, but can be done. I would not choose another school due to the prestige of the university's engineering program.

Overall Experience: So many resources and helpful people. Atmosphere is amazing.

The history of the school is very interesting and the school pride that each student and faculty member has is remarkable.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had been attending a community college until the Fall 2015 semester. So I'm eager to see what a state University is like compared to the community college.

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.
