5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I wouldn't change my school for the world. UF has allowed me to develop more confidence in myself, as well as provided amazing resources for in-the-classroom and out-of-the-classroom needs.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: UFPD, Gainesville PD, and Alachua County PD does a great job enforcing laws on campus, and the blue emergency poles on campus make me feel extremely safe knowing that if I press the button, UFPD will be at my service within 30 seconds.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had a great experiences with all of my courses, except for MAC1147 Precalculus with Trigonometry which way WAY too difficult and fast paced for anyone to keep up with and get a good grade! I feel that UF's STEM classes are a bit too difficult, but they are rigorous to challenge engineering majors which can be a good thing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are so many connections at UF with jobs and internships. Even just speaking with a professor can give you opportunities for research!! Taking advantage of everything this school has to offer is extremely beneficial to its students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorming was an experience I would only do one time. There is not much space or privacy, especially if your roommate generally ignores you and brings their friends over all the time to just hangout on a school night and you just want to go to sleep.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Coming into UF I didn't have much of an opinion about Greek life, but seeing all the philanthropy they do and how they create lifelong relationships, connections, and opportunities, I am definitely planning on joining a sorority in the Fall of 2016! Go Gators!

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Gator football games are special events that in my opinion, are bigger than an NFL game. With its spirited fans, school spirit, and amazing players, a Gator game definitely overrides the feelings of exhaustion due to the 95 degree heat.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UF is so unique in every sense. There are an abundance of opportunities no matter who you are or where you come from! With Greek life, clubs, sports, and even welcoming celebrity guest speakers, UF gives its students opportunities of a lifetime and a future to look forward to with its high quality education.

Health & Safety: They do a pretty good job in trying to maintain security. However, I wish there were more university police officers at night time because there are not as many on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the professors I have had so far are great. I have learned a great deal. There are couple who were not the best at teaching. Most TA's are not great at all.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I know with my specific college they really push for experience, pushing your limits, and developing a career. I truly appreciate that and believe I am on the right path. That is why I am scared to leave due to my financial struggles. Unfortunately, if I can no longer afford it then I have to immediately leave.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is very cliquey. Most Greek life students are rude, do not respect property and are extremely loud.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is tremendous, it is the complete opposite of my high school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school offers a ton of resources that I can use.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: SNAP is really useful for getting home or around campus at night. Sexual assault mostly involves alcohol and parties.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy the smaller classes more than the large lectures and I feel like I learn better in a smaller class.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from UF has increased and I feel like my job prospects are good for the future.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most dorms are old and dirty. The new dorms are over priced.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in the greek life but some of them are very snobby and think the world revolves around them.

Athletics: Lots of support for the different sports teams available.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had a rough freshman year I'm hoping it will get better.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Never really had to use it, but there is a strong police presence on campus. I, personally, have never felt unsafe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had a couple of mediocre professors and TAs, but I've met some incredible people and had the privilege to learn under some brilliant scholars.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The sciences are competitive and churn out very qualified individuals, as do many other areas of the school, particularly in medicine. As I'm an English major though, its hard to gauge it personally.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had a fantastic experience in both Beaty Towers and Maguire Village, but it almost cost me everything I had. Expensive but enjoyable and quality.

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.
