Greek Life: UF Greek life, like many large Greek communities, is very clique. They keep to themselves and don't invite "GDI's" to their functions.

Administration: This school does a lot to ensure the safety of its students. I loved the late walk program where guards were available to walk students home late at night from areas like the library.

Campus Housing: Large variety of differnet buildings and cool stuff

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a huge variety of off campus housing, but many of these housing options force students into year long contracts which is very inconvient. Also, most housing options for summer end before the summer semester which leaves students without a place to live.

Party Scene: I love the parties at UF. I have made a huge group of friends. Parties are usually close and most fraternities or groups will provide rides to ensure students are not drinking and driving or walking at night.

Off-Campus Dining: there are a huge variety of restaurants in the gainesville area. There are nice places which are more expensive as well as cheap places.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wish the school had a better way of giving information to students because it was very hard to determine your finanicial aid status.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It was a nice transition from home cooking. I enjoyed the portion sizes but many times the meals were repeated which got tiring.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The student housing I resided in was very close to my classes, it was also very social which helped me meet a wide variety of my peers who I would not have met otherwise. Although the rooms were very small, I was very glad I decided to live in student housing for my first year.

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.
