4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The education received at UF is fantastic and students gain a lot of insight and experience for their futures and careers. UF has numerous opportunities available for its students and the campus itself is beautiful. One downside is the class size of many gen ed classes at UF, and the likelihood of feeling like "just a number".

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree from UF is going to be very valuable for most students, but it does not have the prestige of a degree from a top private university. I have not seen much recruiting from employers but the Career Fair is a great opportunity to put yourself out there.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Having SNAP is very nice and plays a part in the security I feel on campus, but there is a lot of crime near campus that does not always get resolved adequately by UFPD and GPD.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most dorms are old and expensive for what the students get out of living there. They are a great place to meet like-minded people.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I only give Greek Life a low rating because it is polarizing and manipulative. Students are strongly encouraged to join Greek Life not only for the opportunities they offer but mostly because there is a stigma around not being involved in Greek Life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit and fan support are high for the football team but significantly lower for the less advertised but still fantastic "other" sports.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school has all of the opportunities needed for a complete, robust education available to its students, but the students must be diligent and seek out these opportunities themselves. Classes can sometimes leave much to be desired, such as in a 500 person lecture class or in an online class, but most professors are passionate and knowledgable.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Haven't seen that many people involved in drugs

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors so far have given great lectures. I've learn a lot these past couple of classes. I love the fact they talk to you a lot about your career and give the best information towards it.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are various opportunities for internships. The school itself is constantly recruiting students for employment. Emails are constantly sent for both.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The only real problem is for those who take night classes. The streets are pretty dark and not a lot of people around so it's a bit dangerous.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are quite small and it seems they're not taken care of much

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Haven't become part of one but I heard the Greek life is amazing.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The sports are a big part of UF. Students are very proud of their teams. I believe the football team is one of the best in the country.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers are very welcoming and they truly care for their students success. The school itself has various options for extra curriculum activities as well as great opportunities for internships. I receive constant emails for new internships that open up. UF is definitely an amazing school.

4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

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

5 College Freshman

Athletics: There is nothing like the experience of Gator sporting events. The best are the football games and all the traditions make it more special. All the sports are a big part of campus.

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.
