I loved the University of Florida when I visited it. Once you step on campus, you instantly feel the good vibes. Just by the looks of it and its reputation, you could see that it is a very credible school. I saw different types of races and ethnicities on my visit so I could say that the 5 stars for diversity was truly it.

Opportunities are open and it is truly up the individual to explore them. UF is a great place to not only learn academics but also about yourself and the community.

Ive only been a student at UF for a few weeks now and its been nothing less than absolutely amazing. My roommates have been so respectful, friendly, and reliable, my professors have been nothing but helpful and approachable, and the school itself is like I'm in an entirely different world. Deciding on UF was partially because of the "party" aspect, however, the academics have been effective and amazing. Did I mention the different clubs, organizations, and programs offered? UF is a school for just about anyone, no matter your major, interests, or background! It truly is GREAT to be a Florida GATOR.
