There are so many wonderful things about being a Florida gator. Not only is the overwhelmingly accepting community amazing to be a part of, but everyone shows compassion and understanding towards one another-regardless of race, religion, sexuality, field of study, etc. Everyone helps one another out; together, we are one. Not to mention the exciting school spirit we all share and show in the stadiums! One of my favorite things about being a Florida gator is going to football games and participating in demonstrating our school spirit. The football stadium in particular is loud, animated, thrilling, and honestly such a great catharsis after a long week at school. My school is challenging, but rewarding.

I love attending the University of Florida! My favorite aspect of this school is without a doubt the determination of the students here. Yes, we make the most of our off time, but students take their work very seriously. We do not just try to get by, but rather all work hard and work together to make the most use out of the degree we are pursuing. The people/ students are pretty welcoming and easy-going. Also, the professors P, GTAs, and TAs in my courses are absolutely hands down amazing. They are highly dedicated to supporting, helping, and pushing students to reach their full potential.

Although it is only my first year attending UF, I apcan already say that I would not chose a different school. The education offered, atmosphere of the city, and feeling of importance to professors is inspirational, positivie, and makes every student empowered and passionate at what we do. I've been looking for those characteristics in a college. The University of Florida successfully does that for me.p and I wouldn't change a thing.

Overall the opportunities here at UF are endless and you must venture out to get involved and utilize the resources that this campus has to offer. The more that your are involved, the more people you will meet and therefore you will have more connections and discover even more opportunities! Academic advisors can help you choose your classes for your major and they can also give you information to help you get involved if you do not know where to start. There are numerous clubs and organizations that tailor to your interests and different types of organization fairs that range from helping you find part-time work, volunteer opportunities and even internships. Personally being a minority at this school could make you feel like you will not fit in however, there are many different cultural groups that you can join as well whether if it's related to your major or simply something that you enjoy doing! When I first started I struggled with my confidence and kept to myself. However, I soon learned how to get out of my comfort zone and become open mined to tremendous experiences. The opportunities here will help you learn that college is more then just studying and parties but it is a growing experience that you can take with you even after graduation.
