Technology: UF has fantastic online tools and online degree programs. You must own your own computer.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The gyms are included in tuition so students can get great use out of them. They are pretty nice. And you can take free classes.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Plenty of chain fast food places on campus. Those are cool because you can use your meal plan at a lot of them. Dining halls are okay.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: It's convenient. The gym is awesome. The library is pretty cool because of Starbucks.

Campus Housing: I wouldn't say our dorms are the worst, but after freshman year I moved out.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are some really nice places off campus, but you get what you pay for.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm Greek, and I know for a fact that UF Greek life is what you'd expect at an SEC school.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Bars/clubs are pretty good until you leave Gainesville and see what real nice bars are like.

4 College Junior

Technology: I'd say the computer labs and technology are pretty decent. Tech support is okay.

Parking: You pay for an expensive permit then never find a spot. They'll give you a ticket for backing into a spot. City parking is just as bad. Don't park for five minutes in a tow-away zone.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are lots of ways to easily stay safe! Since most of the liveliness on campus happens in one large area that stays lit-up all night, you have a low chance of running into problems. There's also blue posts everywhere with emergency buttons on them.

2 College Freshman

Parking: The parking is overpriced, it's hard to find a spot, and it's almost not even worth it to bring your car to campus.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think the Greek life on our campus is HUGE, but the people in fraternities and sororities are nice, hard-working, and great people. Sometimes the wrong idea is given about all the Greeks as a whole because of one frat or one sorority, but once you get to know more of them, you see that they are really wonderful.

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.
