3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at UF is prominent to those who are within in. Otherwise if you are a non-Greek, then Greek life will mostly seem irrelevant because it is not for everybody.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics (particularly football) is the foundation of The University of Florida. Every game that we win or lose whether it is home or away brings the students together to cheer and become prideful for something that we all have in common which is for the Florida Gators to be victorious!

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I myself am not apart of the Greek life, yet I still feel apart of the social atmosphere of the campus. As an Economics major most Business students I interact with are a part of Greek life. I view my Greek peers as equals as they don't act any differently than I. Though I do realize that some other non-Greeks have a different attitude toward the system than I as they view the life style where you "pay for your friends".

Athletics: With a new head coach our Football program did very well this year in relation to years past. There is strong school spirit not only on game day. Every where you turn on campus a student is wearing UF apparel in support of their school and each student or fan wears the apparel with pride.

Overall Experience: My school offers many opportunities in not only academics but extracurricular as well. The professors and curriculum can be challenging but the experiences you gain on campus make up for the stressful "all-nighters".

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are often robberies and assaults, but the campus police do a very good job of informing students and warning them when there is potential danger. I feel much safer because of the campus police and the lectures about campus safety.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of my courses were very interesting and I enjoyed going to the classes. I appreciated when the professors chose to engage the students and involve us in their lectures and discussions.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am a freshman so I have not used the career center yet, but I know a degree from the University of Florida will greatly assist me in finding a career I enjoy.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life, but all I hear about from the other freshmen in Greek life are the parties they go to.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: UF's recreation center is a beautiful and very useful resource available to all students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UF has greatly expanded my knowledge of and passion for art and graphic design, my field of interest.

5 College Junior

Academics: best education in the state of florida by far! a diploma from UF is a great stepping stone to finding a great job out of school

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: i wouldn't want to walk home late at night by myself and know of incidents that crimes have even occurred when students are in small groups. its a big campus so hard for law enforcement to be everywhere at the same time, but there needs to be more security and late night transportation for those with late classes and late testing schedules

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: i have never really had trouble getting the classes i need and have had a good relationship with the professors i have needed to talk to.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: i have received my internships on my own but am just getting to the stage that i will need to utilize the student resources more as i get closer to graduation

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: i was in an older portion of broward dorm in a triple so it was tight living space. met a lot of great people though and it was a great campus location

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: opportunities everywhere, just have to be involved!

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Our campus is a very safe environment to live in. I have never felt uneasy

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is a lot of crime. Lots of robberies at gunpoint and the police have been able to do nothing about it so far.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I enjoy my courses and I built a great relationship with one of my professors from last semester. I am pleased with the overall experience.

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.

5 College Junior

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 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.
