What is your overall opinion of this school?

Love it there. And Gainesville is a beautiful city. Lots of character and plenty to do, whether you love the sports and uproar of a big game, or you like the theater and more "sophisticated" activities. There is something for everyone. And UF is one of the best schools I've researched.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred from an elite university to UF. I absolutely HATED it. I'm not sure why other reviews say "anti-social, close-minded" people shouldn't go here, as I'm neither. However, during my time here, I found that so many students cheated. Professors have to teach HUGE classes. Drinking, drugs, sports, sex, etc. culture is so rampant that there's little room for anything else. The people are the worst - whether the douchebag eastern European chemistry TA who favors the sorority girls or the students themselves who rank your physical appearance and your wealth. The students, teachers, and general population are not worth socializing with. There are SO many cliques that are close-minded and stand-offish. The town itself is horrible, kitschy, ugly, and boring. You will have NOTHING to do on the weekends if you're not into sports or drinkings. Stay FAR FAR away from here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love how much love there is on campus and compassion. However, I wish it was more inclusive for the black population. You constantly are shown you are "other." And also the night life is too superficial. I am not the most beautiful girl out there, which is not a problem. Though, the fact that my looks can affect my ability to get into some parties is a bit vain. Then again, no one is responsible for me enjoying my life, right.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is a fantastic institution to pursue a higher education. All of the students are intelligent and have a burning desire to improve themselves and the world around them. The campus is beautiful (albeit always under construction), and the classes are fantastic in all regards.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally like the University of Florida a lot. I will say that the university can feel like a very large place if you don't have a lot of friends or are not very involved in organizations. My first year in college I was not very involved and i didn't know many people so I was lonely and the University felt huge. My second year I got way more involved and met a lot of people so I enjoy the school now. I am much happier now.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have had an overwhelmingly positive experience during my time at UF. From the terrific time I had in my freshman dorm (Hume) to my trying, but rewarding, junior year when I served as President of Florida Players (the only entirely student-run theatre organization on campus), I've had a blast and a half.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the University of Florida is a great school academically. It is flourishing with academic resources and is nothing short of challenging. The campus is bursting with life and is extremely beautiful. My dilemma with the University of Florida is its inclusivity. There is not much representation of minorities on campus and there is usually racial tension and occurrences. racial incidents on campus include students riding around with Nazi arm bands, destruction of African American building signs, derogatory term degrading African Americans written on white boards and more. Even though this university has so much to offer academically, socially, and more, its inclusivity is very alarming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In a world where young adults feel societal pressure to make something of themselves while also discovering themselves, the University of Florida does a magnificent job of creating an environment for college students to do just that. The University of Florida is known for its academia; and while the university produces scholars that excel in their fields, it also produces adults that excel in their personal lives as well. As a student at the University of Florida I can attest to the fact that the university offers students plenty of resources to explore themselves and the world we live in. The student atmosphere is unparalleled as we all challenge each other to see the world from new perspectives and to venture out of our comfort zones. The University of Florida creates an environment where students can thrive not only academically but mentally, emotionally, and personally.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is an amazing school and I love the opportunities presented to me, both social and academic. I appreciate the wide diversity of people on campus from different cultures, career paths, and different political viewpoints. However, sometimes the large student body can make it intimidating to find your own, unique place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've transferred schools three times and of the three, this has been the school where I'm happiest in the most whole way. The arts funding and facilities could be a lot better, but they aren't anywhere near bad and the faculty are all wonderful, competent people. My life is very separate from Greek and sports culture but even though I don't participate in them, they make the campus and surrounding areas constantly alive and there are plenty of alternatives for extracurriculars and fun. I'm very happy I ended up at this school.
