3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is rarely given, unless the student has an extremely low family income or is a minority. If you have neither of those aspects, the best you will get is loans.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There are a tons of opportunities, academic and social, for students. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of clubs students can join.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Facilities in general are really nice for the most part. There are a lot of events and traditions students can take part in.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is often campus crimes, but not enough to be worrisome. At night it's common to not feel very safe, especially when walking alone. Police are pretty involved and prominent on campus in general.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining halls have okay food, that is too expensive. The chain food places, like Chik-Fil-A and Starbucks, are nice to have but the prices are a little higher than normal and Chik-Fil-A does NOT have a full menu like a regular one would. There are a lot of places to get food, but nothing that stands out.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life is pretty big at UF and while some people involved in it do seem to be "snobby", a lot aren't. Non-Greeks have varying opinions of the greek life--some hate it and some take part in a lot of the greek activities anyways. A lot of the houses are nice, but there are a few that are pretty bad (mainly fraternity houses).

4 College Freshman

Academics: The workload is a lot, but that is required anywhere for Engineering majors. UF has a great program to help find internships for students.

Off-Campus Dining: Located close to archer road which has everything you could ever need or what on it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Financial aid came in right away. I took out another student loan and went in my account on time.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The variety and options of off campus housing is great especially price wise. However, the parking is hard to find since most of it is just street parking. Also it is sometimes far from midtown making it dangerous to walk home from at night.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Every student is so proud to be a gator and takes pride in our schools sports.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There are plenty of diversity on campus. You can see it everywhere as everyone has somewhere they can fit in. Diversity even exists among the same social groups.

5 Recent Alumnus

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: The traditions are why I love being a gator. Football games, gator growl and a legacy the school has made will always be important to the students here.

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.
