3 College Junior

Scholarships: Unfortunately, there are not a lot of academic scholarships at UF for students. You really need to search for them. If you know where to look, you can get a good amount of money. The financial aid awarded through the government has always been reliable. I haven't had any problems receiving my financial aid.

5 College Junior

Transportation: There are so many public buses running throughout campus, that during the day, you can get anywhere you need on campus very quickly. The off campus buses are also very reliable. The best part is that the buses are free for UF students, so that adds to the convenience.

4 College Junior

Technology: Every computer I have ever used on campus has been equipped with the latest software and has run fast and effectively. The computer lab in the Reitz lets you have 150 pages of free printing per semester, which is really helpful for class notes. The internet is always reliable, and is very fast.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: UF does a great job supporting fitness throughout campus. Hosting many fitness classes such as yoga, zumba, kickboxing and the list goes on. With all of the oppurtunites the campus provides it hard for one to say they are not satisfied with their body.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Dining off campus can be a pain. Just depending on where one decides to eat timing and comfort may become an issue. Not all resurants have the best service.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The police at the school can be a little annoying. They will stop you for going 1mph over the speed limit. The constant UFPD alerts can get a little annoying also, but I believe that just to keep students up to date with the crime going on around them.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: UF campus is simply amazing! Every resouce one could possibly dream of exsit on this campus with the exception of Coke products. Students and teachers are very welcoming. With many renovations being done to the school in places such as the Reitz, Broward Dining, Gator Corner, and the Murphee area its no wonder the Gator nation is the place to be.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: It often time extremely hot, but we are in Florida and that is expected. I do not feel as though the weather hinders my performance in my classes.

4 Recent Alumnus

Technology: A lot of free printing labs, free wi fi everywhere.

Transportation: Bus is the best method to get to and from campus. Little parking. Shuttle so you don't have to walk alone at night.

Campus Food: The dining hall food itself is not the greatest, options around campus such as chick-fil-a, panda express, burger king, Moes, etc. are awesome

Local Area: The town is centered around the University so its great.

4 College Junior

Academics: I know from visiting my program has its own building and Im looking forward to taking classes.

4 College Junior

Academics: I haven't started classes yet but what I have heard the University of Florida is a great school.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: I didn't receive a lot of financial aid even though I need it very much much thats not what it says on the FASFA. So now I have to go else where that will increase my loans by a lot and I wish I didn't need to do that.

Academics: Wildlife Ecology & Conservation has been nothing but interesting. The majority of the work is hands on, interactive, and conceptual, so you learn to really understand and predict conditions, facts, processes, etc. rather than merely know or memorize them. Being a specific field of study, no one in the department "fell into it," so you will find that everyone has a rowdy passion for the subject.

4 College Junior

Academics: I have not run into a poor professor. They have all been welcoming, encouraging, and thoroughly knowledgeable. Most of them are disappointed when no one comes to office hours. I have had a few classes that were run primarily by the TAs; this was not a problem at all because the TAs were well selected and had been studying the topic of the class for ages, and if you really wanted to speak with the professor, he/she was still available.

4 College Senior

Technology: Most of the computers on campus have been upgraded at UFL over the last couple of years.

3 College Senior

Diversity: As the flagship campus of the Florida system, there's more that UF could do to ensure a diverse student population and to make minoritized area studies feel integral to the university.

Transportation: The bus system is pretty extensive, free for students, and fairly on time.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: The notification system is confusing. When additional information is required, it is not always clear.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: For students that live on or very close to campus the bus system is great. If you live further away from campus the busses aren't as frequent and fill up during the first few days. Parking is a pain for everybody. The SNAP system isn't very user friendly, especially if you don't have a smart phone. I don't know much about the ZIP cars but I've heard it's a nifty program. There are a few busses (non university affiliated) that run to Tampa and South East Florida for weekends. Don't try driving on game days!

4 College Junior

Administration: The University Police are very on top of things and respond to necessary situations quickly that need to be attended to.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are some financial aid opportunities available, but they are somewhat difficult to get.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
