4 College Sophomore

Administration: Policies and rules are very strict when it can apply. Sometimes you can get around having friends over at your dorm or not attending classes. But when it comes to alcohol use or parking or the honor code, you don't want to get into all of that.

Greek Life: Greek life is probably the majority of the student population. Greeks are always present in anything that goes on on campus and as well as hold many of their own exclusive events. Greek housing is available in their huge mansions, but you don't have to live there.

Campus Quality: The two student gyms are great! The two main libraries is very central to classes and have tons of space and resources. Traditions are everywhere. And anywhere is great to find a niche for hanging out.

Drug Safety: Drugs are definitely not as visible as alcohol. Alcohol is not seen on campus, but off campus it is very abundant.

Health & Safety: Safety and security on campus is great! There are blue light emergency phones within visible distance from each other that can be used in case of any emergency. And you get alerts on your phone and by e-mail of any burglaries or emergency situations that may be going on.

Technology: I was surprised by the fact that there is wifi connection ALL over campus. Even while walking on the street, outside of buildings, I manage to have a strong wifi connection on my phone.

Guys & Girls: There are beautiful gils everywhere, you'd have to have your eyes closed to not see at least 5 every day.

Campus Housing: I live on campus and the only downside is not having your own room but that really isn't that bad because I enjoy coming back to my dorm and napping for a few minutes before the next class.

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.
