4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and would be totally at ease if my sister came to school here.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are run down and most don't have private bathrooms

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life gives you a instant family and a new way to ale friends. There involvement in community activities and social events is incredible and gives you a sense of belonging and purpose.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: My brother plays football for the gators so I am a little biased. But I can tell you that my friends don't have brothers who play for the Gators and they are just as passionate as I am.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UF is a very competitive university. Some consider it the Ivey of the south. I consider it the best kept secret in colleges. You can not beat the experience academically and the campus vibe is incredible. There is nothing like the atmosphere during game day. To top it off I am only 5 hrs away from home and can visit whenever I want.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have learned that a degree from the University of FLorida is one of the most valuable degrees in the country. Students with a degree from UF are looked at as highly qualified candidates with real world application.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The quality of courses has been good, although some are difficult to access. I would prefer if all courses were available to see through Canvas. The online courses I have experienced have been difficult to access and confusing to implement. I have enjoyed the opportunity of Rec Sports and of the Career Resource Center.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel the University stives for a safe and healthy campus. There will always be conflicts on a college campus. For being such a large school I feel the University of FLorida does a very good job of enforcing safety.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Unless you are getting off campus, extremely new, expensive and hard to get housing, the general housing options are fairly poor. The buildings are old and not renovated. The cleanliness is low and the buildings are dirty both on the outside and the inside. Where most colleges offer bathrooms inside the dorms, most of the dorms here have community style bathrooms. There are very few apartment-style or even split dorms available.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Although I am not a member nor have tried to be a member, I have heard from many girls currently rushing that the process is extremely biased and unorganized. Many of the girls have noted how picky the Greek life sororities are and how they seem to be biased in looking for a specific type or person.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic opportunities at the University of Florida are some of the greatest in the Country. The range of activities students have to opportunity to participate in is vast and incorporating of all different interests and activity levels. From RecSports to club sports, to the gym facilities, to the fitness classes, to intramurals, students are encouraged to get active and have fun with athletics.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The family of the Gator Nation has made Freshmen feel very welcome and important in the Gator Family. Online classes; however, remain very confusing and vague. Most of the professors I have encountered between the summer classes I took and the current fall courses I am taking, seem very dedicated and concerned with their student's success.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My time at the University of Florida has been one of the best times of my life.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Never used housing at UF.

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.
