Health & Safety: There are always security guards by the library doors during late nights/early mornings ready to escort you out to your car.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is too limiting, the rooms are small and greatly overpriced for the amenities offered.

Greek Life: I have never had the urge to join the Greek community and I don't regret it.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics department at the University is incredible, from football to baseball, and the Gator nation unites for all sports.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: While I love my social sciences and humanities professors at the University and their dedication towards helping students, the financial aid offices and advisors want nothing more than to make money off of students by finding ways to keep them at the University for as long as they can.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, I truly appreciate my experiences both in and out of the classroom here at UF. The education is extremely rigorous, but there are resources to help your semester go smoothly. The social aspect of the school is pretty great also. I have had a lot of trouble financing my first coupe semesters and unfortunately, there are not many available scholarships that I qualify for, making financial pressure a big issue to deal with. I am still getting used to the size of some classes, but it's not too bad. I wish there were more interesting courses offered that were relevant to my program of study.

Overall Experience: Whenever I tell someone that I go to the University of Florida, it's always a word of congratulations. People definitely look up to my school and there is a certain level of prestige attached to earning a degree from UF. Both professionals and non-professionals would agree to that.

Health & Safety: As a student who has yet to run into any conflict or danger, I feel pretty safe on campus at all times. UFPD frequently sends out text alerts when a crime has occurred which I appreciate. Overall, I feel that the campus is safe. Common sense and being alert as a in individual plays a big part in safety, too.

Campus Housing: For the price I paid to live in my dorm last year, I was disappointed in what it had to offer. The elevators were almost always broken, the building had mildew and inefficient appliances. Although close to classes, there were really not many other perks to making this dorm my home for 9 months.

Athletics: The term "School Spirit" is redefined at the University of Florida. This is Gator Nation and if you're passive about athletics, that is sure to change while you're at school.

Overall Experience: My first year was a one of a kind experience. I learned so much in and out of the classroom. What makes UF unique is the level of talent and drive that students bring to the table.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: In Architecture, it is one of the most stressful majors at the University of Florida when it comes to time, money, and difficulty. Our teachers like to challenge us to make sure we are ready to design in high pressure situations and under a time budget.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I found my current summer internship as a recommendation from a critique on my mid-term review for my design class. I love my current job and work along side other University of Florida graduates. The Gator Nation is everywhere.

Health & Safety: We have S.A.F.E. which is a student ride option at night that is students a police officers partnered up to make sure you can get anywhere around campus safely. We also have a buddy walk program where students can walk together to prevent anything from happening. Also scattered around campus are Blue Safety lights that you can press the button and help will be there in minutes if you feel unsafe. University of Florida cares about their students and makes sure their is a variety of options to make sure everyone is safe.

Campus Housing: I only lived in a dorm for the first summer I was at University of Florida. I can say it was a great experience, I did have to share a room and bathroom. The only thing I did not like it the cleaning staff had to enter our rooms to clean the bathroom and sometimes came way earlier then my classes started.

Greek Life: Greek life somewhat runs the school. If you are not in the fraternity of sorority or in a lesser of the fraternity of sorority's you are looked down upon and can't be as involved or welcomed as you might want to be.

Campus Housing: I loved getting the freshman experience and highly recommend living in a dorm for your first year. But after that get out! it definitely makes you appreciate personal space

Greek Life: the tier system for the greek life at our school is extremely harsh. I love being in a sorority but I hate the judgement I get from other greeks because I'm bottom tier.

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.
