Off-Campus Dining: I normally buy my own food to cook because I live off campus in an apartment. I rarely go out because of the cost, but the places I have been to are great.

Local Area: It's a small college town, but you get the college feeling when you are there. Downtown has plenty of attractions from theaters to bars, to restaurants, to many other fun places.

Health & Safety: There are many events such as self defense classes offered to students so that they gain the necessary knowledge so that they can be aware of what to do when they are faced with the issue of any type of assault. overall, the campus is very aware of the seriousness of the issue.

Off-Campus Housing: Better than the dorms for sure. It is safe and always near a bus stop so it's extremely fast and reliable when needing to get on campus. the cost is much lower than dorms, and it supplies far more amenities than living on campus.

Scholarships: Financial aid to me was a hard task to get my hands on. The financial aid i was given was enough to cover room and tuition, but that left my books and other needs in the air for me to take care of myself.

Campus Housing: Living on campus does not give you much space or privacy, but it's a great place to meet people and be involved with things happening around campus.

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining definitely beats eating at the dining hall within the university. There is a range of restaurants, ranging from Latin Bars to Indian Cuisines and Middle eastern Dining Specials. The diversified class of restaurants is extremely well rounded and very convenient for students living on and off campus.

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.
