College Freshman

Greek Life: I personally don't have any experience with Greek life but many of my friends participate.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a great amount of school spirit and fan base. On game days the entire campus is packed and it's a great feeling.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I personally don't have any experience with off campus housing but a lot of my friends live off campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't usually eat off campus but when I do it's reasonably priced.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I do know that the honor code is taken extremely seriously here and in ROTC particularly underage drinking is a big deal.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm personally not one to party but I know the night life is a very large part of UF, especially on game days.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall is extremely convenient but on certain days the food options aren't too great, especially on weekends. The flex bucks option is a life saver and let's us enjoy delicious places such as Chick-Fil-A.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Moving into campus housing was extremely easy and welcoming. There was staff all along the street to direct us to where we needed to go and they were all extremely friendly. The dorms were clean when we arrived and mine personally was very spacious. My dorm is directly across from the ROTC building which is essential to be on PT days and helped a lot during my first year of college.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in a dorm my freshman year and shared a room with another girl and then shared a kitchen and bathroom with two other girls. It was like a little apartment! Loved it

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Lots of things to do at night.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Getting the government financial aid is very hard.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Best dorm for freshman is Broward. Anyone older that wants to live in a dorm should live in Beaty or Springs. Springs is nice but on the very edge of campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't had the full experience yet.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Officers are pretty helpful and valued.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am not very familiar with the process.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not very many healthy options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is relatively average all around.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a ton of apartments, but not many for a good price close to campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love going to Mothers with my friends every week, and there is a great variety of places.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I believe the campus enforcement is a little harsh... Too often have I gotten a warning while riding my bike.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have had a lot of fun with all the partying I've experienced this year.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I just applied for my Bright Futures and I had no trouble receiving it every semester.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a Chick-Fil-A at the heart of campus, so it's good.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am with obnoxious roommates, but other than that it is a great experience.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Since the campus housing situation isn't excellent, there is a HUGE selection of off-campus housing at UF. There are options in midtown, downtown, on archer and many more. Whatever your price range, there's something for you. Whether you want furnished, unfurnished, utilities included, parking included, a pool, etc.; you'll be able to find a place that fits all of your needs.

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.
