5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Florida has a beautiful campus with fantastic facilities and an enthusiastic student base.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe. Everywhere you look, there is a glowing blue light signaling a emergency distress call box that, once pressed, will send the campus police to your location within 3 seconds, purportedly.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is hard. I'm not going to lie about that. Sure, you can mess around during "syllabus week" but you really have to get it together after that. ALWAYS do your homework and assignments. Even if you have grade drops, even if you forgot about a quiz and took it in the Dentist's chair like I did, always do your assignment or it'll come back to bite you later. Lectures are usually huge and discussions are smaller sized classes with your TA. Going to discussion is not always necessary, but it might be a good idea to go if you think you need help from your TA for the course.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In terms of a degree from a college in Florida, your degree means more at this school than any other school. If you're going into a competitive work field, your degree from this school proves that you are a hard-worker. I promise it will help.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living close to all of my classes, but there are truly cheaper housing options off-campus, and it really sucks to have to share amenities and bathrooms.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you find the right fraternity or sorority, life can be really great for you. Use it to your advantage, don't just "pay for your friends."

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We not only have so much school spirit for our major sports, but intramurals and club teams also receive an immense amount of support and credit.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love absolutely everything about this school. Sure, academics are difficult and it's impossible to get involved or internships due to the intense competition, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I would say that UF has a pretty good set up as far as safety goes. There have only been a few occurrences of criminal activity; it definitely isn't a prime concern.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would say that it's the best but there's always gonna be that handful of professors/courses that you just can't stand. Other than this seldom tragedy, UF has the best professors/courses.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The level of effort put in towards student careers is absolutely amazing. There are so many opportunities and events for students to reach out and attend. If you graduate from UF without ever having a job, internship, or career established, it's your own fault.

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.
