Party Scene: It depends on what you like but there is strong chance no matter what it is you will find it

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I don't really know. The only drugs people actually talk about using are alcohol, weed, and Molly and that's because those are the popular ones. If you don't do drugs, you don't do them so your friends most likely won't. It's not something I have ever been worried about

3 College Junior

Weather: It's Florida, it's bipolar. One thing for sure though, since Gainesville is landlocked it gets colder and much hotter than other places but when there are good days they are BEAUTIFUL

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.
