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.

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

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: UF has the biggest school spirit I've ever seen.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It is extremely difficult but worth it. Student life and the professors are the best!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have personally had great professors who are passionate about what they teach and overall very understanding. As for courses, I have found some quite challenging but it is worth the work.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Anyone who comes from UF has an upperhand in their career. The best kids come for Uf.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They take it very seriously here and do a great job of preventing it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus but everyone I know does not say terrible things about it.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not personally in greek life but all of my friends are and I think they are great. I just personally do not agree with the cost, but I think what they stand for is awesome. It is a great way to make friends.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Game days for football are my favorite! We get so passionate here and everyone gets really into game day.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the University of Florida. It is a great campus with amazing opportunities.

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.
