3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Best dorm is probably Hume Hall, but I like living in East Hall. It's the Engineering dorm, so I live with other students who are in my classes. Location of East is really convenient too, for Engineering majors. We have RA's who organize social activities. Dorm life is very convenient. Everything you need is within walking distance. Housing process is online and easy to complete

Overall Experience: It's the best place for me. Challenging engineering program. Weather is colder than I am used to, but not too cold. Met a lot of great students, mostly from the state of Florida. Never saw a school with such great school spirit. Best experience with the summer program I took before starting my freshman year. It's where I met most of my closest college friends, and it made me feel very comfortable before fall semester even started. I would definitely choose UF again if I had to do it over again.

Campus Food: Lots of dining halls and options on campus. I like to use my flex bucks so that I don't always have to eat in the dining hall.

Academics: UF Engineering has a great reputation. The Engineering classes are not easy. Great facilities, but I am only a freshman.

Academics: UF offers a ton of majors. I have not met a lot of professors yet, mostly TA's. Registration is online, like it is at almost all universities. You can't get into higher level classes without carefully reviewing both pre-requisites and that the right course will be offered in the semester you need it, but there are a lot of sections offered for the lower level courses. Workload is manageable, but you have to be disciplined and organized. There is always a temptation somewhere on campus.

Campus Food: Broward dining is known to be pretty bad. I've had okay experiences. Meal plans are expensive but worth it.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Bookstore doesn't even sell shot glasses as they view it as a promotion of alcohol use. UF is a tobacco free & alcohol free campus, no matter your age.

Scholarships: UF only gives 55 scholarships to 6000+ incoming freshman. It is very competitive but I received sufficient government aid.

Campus Housing: The worst part is the communal bathrooms and the difficulty of getting a dorm that does not have them. The social atmosphere is great. The cost is average but you are paying for the convenience.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: There are plenty of things to do in Gainesville. Mostly revolves around nature.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: UF has wonderful facilities. Broward dining is my only complaint.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Students have so many opportunities to become involved at UF. The student life is amazing. Definitely take advantage of gator nights, the greek life and the 1000+ student organizations.

5 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

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.
