My school is the most unique because the professors still manage to get to know their students on a personal level even though they may have close to 500 students per class. The student government creates opportunities for everyone- if you're not into greek life or partying, they make activities for you to do. Every Friday is gator nights, and it is a great way for the gator nation to come together as a community and play games as well as watch movies and eat free food. The RA's were very personal. Overall, UF helped my transition from home to living on my own go smoothly. I felt very supported. It seemed like everyone wanted to see you achieve and succeed.

My orientation at this school was one of the best experiences I've had yet! The presentations were both entertaining and informative. The people running the program know what they're talking about and are clearly well trained.
