Campus Quality: Being a transfer student and only spending my last 2 years of undergrad there, I did not take much advantage of the extra opportunities UF offers. However, TRiP looked like fun, where you get to go on group outdoor trips across the country.

Off-Campus Dining: You can always find what you are looking for to eat in Gainesville! Especially if it is fried :P

3 College Student

Scholarships: I received a bright futures scholarship from the state of Florida for my undergraduate experience. I had no problems receiving it, and was not qualified to receive any other aid.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is so much better than living on campus because you get all of the perks of living on campus except you have a cheaper living experience.

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.
