4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I do not have a meal plan. I have a card that my mother put money on it for meals. I swipe it at various places on campus that I eat. I am a healthy eater and I do not but food that is not good for you. I do not eat fast food opt more for salads, wraps ect. There are many options on campus for me and getting food has never been a problem or an issue.

Campus Housing: I live in an nice dorm / apartment with 3 other girls. We have our own bedroom which is great. There are 2 bathrooms. I am a little out from my classes but the bus service is excellent and it has never been an issue getting to my classes. The cost of where I am residing is a little more expensive than if I was in a dorm right in the middle of the campus. I am close to a gym and it is a quiet area that I live in. The post office is across the street and there is a nice lake that I can walk to that is a nice place to relax and study. The only thing is that places for me to eat that are on my meal card are right on campus and once I get back to my dorm I do not go back to campus to eat. I make alot of my own meals and a grocery store is not far from my apartment. All in all I do like it the I live on the edge of the campus.

Campus Food: More health conscious options would be nice, the vegan meals at dining halls are incorrectly advertised for. Subway is definitely a plus, but replacing the Reitz Burger King with a more varied healthy option food joint.

Campus Housing: It's very hard to live out of the space provided, but it is manageable for a first year college experience. The RAs did a good job trying to socialize the floors and facilitate group events. The roommate pairing system isn't perfect, but it did not go horribly wrong in my case.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about it yet, but there are lots of places around campus, that are affordable on a college budget and financial aid. And that are understanding

Off-Campus Dining: I don't really think about it too much, some places close too early, others are open right when you need them

3 College Sophomore

Administration: School pretty good at being strict only when it's necessary. Honor codes a bigg deal, and residental life is pretty good too

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Getting any financial aid is so hard, they give out nothing and I'm just waiting until they finally give me something other than loans

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't know much about it

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are good options, you just have to know where to eat, and when.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's a great ay to make friends, but the rooms and small and you're sharing sith someone else. Some are clased to classes others, it'll take a little bit to get there. The people are great, the pools are nice, so are the convinence stores.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of students live off campus and its sometimes good cause you get more privacy

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I can find so many food all around the campus and its great

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.
