Overall Experience: I love being a part of something greater, and that's what it is to be a Florida Gator.

There's a ton of diversity on campus and everyone practices their right to freedom of speech. I love being able to experience cultures different from my own on a daily basis. We are a giant, orange and blue family here and I love it!

Overall Experience: The University of Florida has offered a great experience for me. There is so much going on here that it first it all felt hectic, but after a few months I was able to find my niche and call it "home." Students are filled with school spirit, and the wide array of sports from water polo to underwater hockey to football to fending offer an exciting experience for students of all athletic levels. The classes are challenging but hardly unreasonable, and the opportunities to conduct undergraduate research are endless. Pursuing extracurricular activities is highly encouraged, and students and faculty members are very welcoming and genuinely care about their students.

Overall Experience: The University of Florida is an amazing school and I love to be there. Some favorite experiences are the football games, free concerts, homecoming concert, and Gatornights. UF unique because its large amount of students and the variety of people attending. Also there is always so much going on from tailgating to club activities to tabling in the courtyard to free movies and concerts. I discovered marine science here and I am greatly passionate about it and cant wait to study more and more about it here. I think its the best school to go to.

Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose any other school than UF because I'm already a Gator at heart and feel like I belong here. The academic atmosphere is wonderful, I've been taking some interesting classes, and I love the extracurricular activities I've had access too. The students, teachers, and other staff are welcoming and willing to help if you ask.

Overall Experience: I am incredibly happy that I was accepted to the University of Florida and would not change a thing if i could go back. Everything about the campus is lovable from its natural beauty to the quality of fellow students that attend this University to the exceptional level of academics and athletics offered here. I only wish that I could more easily fund my academic career at UF since being an out-of-state student requires a heavy tuition load.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's actually great to be a Florida Gator. The academics are challenging without getting in the way, the extracurricular and social scenes have something for everyone, the Greek life is great for those who like it but not a necessity to have fun and doesn't run the campus culture. I didn't think I'd like being at such a large school but now I can't picture myself enjoying a small school after experiencing a school where there's really something for everyone.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my school it is challenging and my perfect fit. I have been learning so much in just these short amount of months and the campus is beautiful. The only reason I did not rate my school a perfect 5 stars is because of greek life. If you do not join greek life you will be lonelier than dog, I say this from experience.

Overall Experience: The campus along with all of its facilities are great. However, without Greek life I feel alone in this incredibly large school of 50,000 students. Nonetheless, the bus system is great and the teachers can be pretty cool.

Overall Experience: The University of Florida always has something going on and has more options for involvement than one could probably imagine. Our campus displays the unique personalities found in the students from the all-campus Nerf Gun Wars on Friday nights to the Enu-hammock parties that occur in our plaza every morning. The classes are beyond challenging but unquestionably prepare each student for their individual career field.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
