4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: When I first came to the University of Florida, the overall size was almost entirely too overwhelming. During my classes preview, everyone we spoke to told us the same thing.. get involved. So that's just what I did. Now, I've created my own niche through joining organizations like Habitat for Humanity and even becoming a member of the executive board. It's been such a blast. This University has provided me with so many opportunities that I wouldn't otherwise have. During my spring break, myself and 7 other students from the University entered to Gray Louisiana to build houses for those in need. It is still one of the best things I've ever done and am so grateful to be given such opportunities.

Overall Experience: The atmosphere of my school is so different than where I grow up - you can feel the cool air, while also feeling the humidity of the swamp. The nature and architecture stops you in your tracks. Everybody is passionate about the university and there is nothing better than networking and communicating with Gators. My college, the college of Journalism and Communications, has been nothing but a rewarding experience and has helped me to further reach my goals to become a journalist.

Overall Experience: The Gator Nation brings together the students and faculty. I love the people and the environment of the Swamp and I've made many lasting memories and friends. These are some reasons why I would choose my school again if I could do it all over.

Overall Experience: The University of Florida is not only a school but a family. From the moment I stepped on campus, I have felt at home. Everyone here is extremely helpful and is willing to go out of their way for you. The teachers care about each and every one of their students. The classes are engaging and challenging yet not too hard. UF truly cares for its students as it has programs like SNAP (Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol) to ensure everyone's safety is of the highest priority. I love UF and am proud to be a part of the gator nation.

Overall Experience: My rent for UF is ricidoulsly high. Their financial aid office is very unwelcoming and unsupportive. Because of expensive bills , I was not able to receive a meal plan and now I almost starve everyday. I was subjected to take student loans and my charges exceeded the payments made by both financial aid and student loan. My expected family contribution to my education is very slim to none.

Overall Experience: So far, it's great to be a Florida Gator!! The summer term was much more relaxed than the fall semester so far, but it was a great way to prepare myself for the big campus and understanding the work load and how much effort and work I would have to put into school.

Overall Experience: The passion of the professors; the events always happening to bring the campus closer together; the opportunities to broaden your horizons - these are all reasons why even after graduating, I found it so hard to leave. I became good friends with several of my professors, and the connections I made with my fellow students in many classes will be cherished forever. Take a chance and enroll in a course that may be out of your comfort zone. Audit courses you find interesting. Talk to your professors after class. Most importantly, savor every second. Don't make it go by too quickly. You won't regret it.

Overall Experience: It's hard sometimes to figure out what you're doing sometimes but once you know it's great.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school really is a wonderful place for all kinds of people. We have amazing athletics, stellar art programs, a great law school, so many clubs, there really is something for everyone. Football games here, as well as other big school wide events like gator growl really bring the student body together and everyone feels so accepted and involved. This school is a beautiful campus and is kept so nice. Not a day goes by where I don't see something being cleaned or the lawn being maintained or something being planted. UF has has so much to do on campus and off, theres restaurants and trails, and sporting events open to the public and art courses and so so much more. My favorite thing about this place is that it makes you feel at home even when your home is hundreds or thousands of miles away. Everyone is so welcoming and (most of) the professors are fantastic and go above and beyond to make sure everyone is getting the most out of each course. There's a niche for every person, and another great part of this community is that these separate niches are able to come together. The jocks hang with the theatre kids. The skaters with the art kids. The honor roll students with the greek life. We all come from different places and backgrounds but once we step on this campus we are all Gators.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At the two-day Preview session (an orientation of sorts in that we were given a tour of the university as well as met with several faculty members and student leaders to handpick our schedules for the 2015 fall semester), I felt thoroughly provided for in my educational and emotional needs. Everyone from the university was incredibly nice and thoughtful, and I look forward to getting to know my fellow peers as I move in the 22nd!

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.
