Transportation: while sometimes the buses may be full they still provide constant transportation to and from campus that is free for students

Athletics: I believe the opportunities with intramural sports allows students a break to enjoy life if they don't have the time to participate in varsity sports or the required athleticism.

Diversity: I believe the diversity on campus is what strengthens its culture as individuals are more accepting of others as we come together due to our common drive in regards to our major

Off-Campus Dining: One word: Satchel's. Of course, we have a lot of other really great places to try out, but Satchel's is pretty iconic. There is a lot of variety and most places have college friendly costs (i.e. broke-college-kid budget friendly).

Health & Safety: Gainesville itself is kind of sketchy. If you go downtown, there will be some questionable people there. Nonetheless, campus is relatively secure, especially if you are with a group of people. I have not had to use the health center yet, but I haven't heard anything negative about it.

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus so I'm not sure how accurate this is. I am taking what I have heard from friends.

Athletics: Gamedays are so huge, and even with sports other than football the school is always proud of what our teams accomplish. I know that Greek life has intramural teams and I think there are other ones as well. There are many opportunities and a lot of school spirit.

Administration: The school has pretty strict policies for some things, but most of the policies don't get enforced very much or are easy to sneak by without getting caught.

Transportation: The school and public buses are free for students, and come with a GPS system so that students can check the location of the bus through an app. Taking the bus is not necessary, but it can be nice if it is raining or if you want to go off campus.

Technology: There are a decent amount of computers available throughout campus, but there are limited places to print for free. It is helpful to have your own printer. The wireless is usually pretty reliable, but it can be spotty sometimes.

Off-Campus Housing: Some places really close to campus can be on the more expensive side, but most apartment complexes are very high quality, and if they are far, have a bus stop right outside.

Party Scene: There are so many possibilities with frat parties, bars in midtown, bars and clubs downtown, nice places to hang out in historical downtown, and the Later Gator is very efficient.

Administration: It is strict in the manner that you feel safe with the rules, but aren't negatively affected by it. The only thing that can be bothersome is the parking violations on 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.
