1 College Junior

Greek Life: Many people who join fraternities or sororities look down upon those who do not. For some reason they believe they're better than everyone else. It's really sad to see.

Athletics: Everyone at the school really supports their team, and I believe that is the biggest foundation that the school is built on.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at the school has been okay. I took my advisers advice and took easier classes my first freshman semester so I focused more on what I really wanted to do by taking classes such as Intro to Equine Science and Techniques in Equine Science, however next semester my classes will be much more challenging. I loved my professors my first semester, but I really haven't heard a kind word about the ones for next semester. I've heard that they can be rude, arrogant, and won't provide help if you need it. I would prefer to have a professor who is willing to help me and cares about my success but it seems many classes here are seen as "weed out" classes and they are not willing to push you towards success. I was unable to get a better professor because of my registration time. I was given a late time to register and by the time it was my turn, all the classes had been taken. I believe that the school needs a better system for who gets to register and when, because I'm unable to get the classes I need for my degree considering they fill up so quickly.

Overall Experience: The only thing that I have a love/hate relationship with at UF is the amount of online courses I have to partake in as a business student.

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.
