4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Florida is a great school with diversity throughout their student body which allows for all students to find their "home away from home" on campus. I would not choose to go anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Depending on one's plan of study, class styles and class sizes vary; some may be lecture sizes while others may be small group sizes. However, most if not all classes have TA's that host smaller group sessions or professors have office hours throughout the week. With that being said, a student is bound to succeed in every course if they do their part and take advantage of the numerous aids throughout campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Gator Nation is truly across the globe and graduating from this prestigious institution will provide a plethora of opportunities from alumni to excel within your field.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The University of Florida does everything it possible to ensure each and every student feels safe on campus especially with the U Matter We Care program as well as varying safety programs that are implemented during the night hours. I believe students do not have to feel ashamed if their personal safety is threatened because someone is always around to provide guidance and help. Like any other school sometimes things happen, but I believe UF is one of the best to make sure nothing worsens and students' safety is a top priority.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Overall, campus housing is very convenient to class, clean, spacious, and easy to obtain preferential housing. Of course, every person varies on their opinions of living on campus, but I have lived on campus going on three academic years now and have no complaints. However, I would strongly recommend either not doing random roommate request unless you are not very particular or have a roommate in mind already for the year.

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.
