What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is constantly commended for the undeniable academic reach it has and networking opportunities provided (mostly in greeks and the health field). However, it lacks diversity in the support and resources available for certain focuses in particular areas (arts, entertainment, activism, etc). The campus does have commendable safety measures, like SNAP and the emergency buttons provided almost all over campus (except Frat Row). However, due to the lack of staffing in certain facilities offered to students, workers are often overextended and underpaid - to the point that it loses some of its efficiency. Also, parking is very difficult.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The 50,000-student population of the University of Florida can be intimidating to some. It may make you wonder, "How am I going to find a group of friends?" or "How will I ever get to know my professors?" As a fourth-year undergraduate Gator, I can confirm that there are endless opportunities that the University of Florida has to offer; it is up to each individual student to take advantage of them. Between football games & tailgates, Greek life, pre-professional clubs, cultural organizations, campus-hosted activities in the student union, nights in midtown, career recruitment fairs, and so much more, there is something for everyone. Academics at the University of Florida may be relatively rigorous, but this teaches Gators how to work hard and play hard. The University itself teaches its students how to balance academics and personal life, which is a valuable lesson with which we each graduate. Another notable aspect is our school spirit. Like many of my peers, I am proud to have spent my undergraduate years wearing orange & blue and doing the Gator chomp. When I graduate, I will continue these traditions with the rest of our strong alumni network.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is in the top 10 public universities for a reason. They have a 2:1 faculty to student ratio so there's no reason for anyone to not get the help they require. The university has upwards of a thousand clubs and organizations for their students to join at their leisure so the opportunity to get involved on campus is left wide open. Nobody can say that they couldn't find their niche at UF. There's literally something for everyone. My only criticism is that there's not a lot of parking on campus so most students either end up walking to class or riding a bus/bike (which quite frankly is better for the environment anyway so I'm not complaining).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Advisers are terrible, all administrations are hard to access and working with them is nearly impossible. Dorms are terrible. Food is even worse. Most of the professors I have had were awful. The social life is absolute garbage and the most enjoyable days I have there are the ones I am leaving.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is honestly a great school to attend. In the past two years that I have been a student at UF, I have felt nothing but kindness and support from my surrounding peers as well as my professors and other faculty members. Although classes may be pretty challenging at times, everyone at UF wants you to succeed and pushes you to do so. The majority of libraries across campus are open for 24 hours, allowing for students to complete work or study at whatever time of the day or night that they desire, professors hold multiple different office hours throughout the week to accommodate to all students’ schedules, and there are multiple facilities located across campus, such as U Matter We Care and the Counseling and Wellness Center, that offer different resources for students that can help them with transitioning into college life and much more. Needless to say, the University of Florida is an all around fantastic school that can greatly benefit and prepare you for the rest of your life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is a great school. There are clubs for everything you can imagine and there are plenty of research opportunities for those who are interested. I really enjoy the wide array of classes, especially because I always end up taking at least one class per semester that it outside of my comfort zone. Since being here, I find it easier to talk to people and share my ideas and beliefs in and out the classroom. I have also found it extremely helpful that professors tend to be available outside of the classroom because then I can easily reach out when I need help. I think that college is really about expanding your horizons and developing who you are and I think that UF has really helped me do that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is very highly rated institution, but there are some shortcomings. The diversity in the school is lacking and as a student of color I feel as though the tone that is set through the administration and student government ignores the needs of those who feel underrepresented. I love my school, but the monopoly of student government by predominantly white greek life means for a campus that doesn't serve all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending the University of Florida was the greatest decision I ever made. UF is nestled in the city of Gainesville which has become a college town and is known for their sports teams. Everyone is friendly and with such a large student body, people are bound to find others with their same interests. The curriculum at UF has gotten tougher over the years, but with a strong support system and a good study plan, its definitely doable. The best years of my life were spent at the UF!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the school is that although there is much that can be improved, it is the college experience I need. I actually consider it as a second home now because I am around the people I know and am receiving a quality education. One thing I find quite annoying is how much harder they make their classes for no apparent reason compared to other universities. One thing they do right is ensure student involvement is existent on campus and make transitioning from high school to college easy in a social aspect.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good school, there is a lot of crowd management in terms of the professors grading styles and interactions with students. You have to go out of your way to get help and you have to navigate yourself, but I guess that's the point of school. Can be unsurvivable if you're not a go-getter.
