4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Tons of food options catered to anything and everything that students will spend their money on.

Diversity: Theres tons of diversity at UF, but personally I don't tend to affiliate with a diverse group of people.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: UF is great for college students and them only. Theres tons to do if you are in your late teens, early twenties and not mush room for anything or anyone else. Gainesville itself is a pretty crappy city, and I cant wait to get the hell out the second I graduate.

Greek Life: Greek life does so much for UF whether outsiders do or don't realize it. Greeks have the highest GPA's, are the most involved, and make the most connections. Whatever fraternity/sorority you choose, you are better off than not going greek. Its the best way to make connections and set up for a life after college.

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.
