It is a fun school with really great academic - it is the best of both worlds! Game day are super fun especially when the Gators win, but tailgates never disappoint. School is very important to the students and faculty at the University of Florida! Academics are taken seriously and the students work really hard!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is honestly a great school. You get a wonderful education while living such an intense school pride. Everyone walks around enjoying their day and striking up a conversation with a complete stranger over some trivial thing is a lot of fun. We just reached the 8th spot of best public schools of the nation, so receiving a top notch education would be a definite if you go here. After all, it's great to be a Florida Gator!

It is a large campus; however, it is well organized for maximum convenience. I miss having smaller class sizes. The course curriculum is challenging, but fortunately, the Professors and TAs are readily available to meet with students to receive additional help if needed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly love the University of Florida. This has been my dream school since I was little. I love how nice and open the people are there. I am a freshman and the advisors and upperclassmen have always been willing to help me. The teachers are willing to make extra office hours if you're unable to make the usual ones. There are plenty of places to eat and shop near campus you do not need a car to get around. I love how close we are to everything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Florida has an amazing atomosphere for the students and makes me feel at home. It provides us with great academic and extracurricular opportunities. We complete projects for the world around us and come together to fight for what we believe in. I would not have chosen a better school to have attended.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school full of opportunities! There are many different activities that students of all ages and all backgrounds can be apart of. The professors are very understanding of student athletes and are able to accommodate to their schedules. They are very understanding of their busy schedules and want to help them succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is amazing. It does not only facilitate an excellent learning environment, it also offers countless opportunities. There are always events going on, students are always very involved and driven, and teachers and faculty genuinely want to help you. I have never felt like a burden on anyone, in fact they not only welcome you but motivate you which is refreshing in such a competitive world. This school is amazing for so many reasons however what fascinates me is how this school made its' own world in a rural city. The University of Florida is Gainesville, its not how you would expect Gainesville contains the University of Florida. Also, the environment even outside of school is so nice and refreshing, even getting groceries you are asked about your day and if you need help. Back where I am from, Miami, that would never in a million years happen. I genuinely love it here and I am such a strong advocate for this amazing school and all the incredible opportunities it provides.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the University of Florida is an exceptional school. Maybe it's me being easily pleased, but there's an incredible abundance of things to like about the college and also a great number of things to critique. No one is perfect and there's always room for improvement. Architecturally, the buildings are a mix of that classic collegiate aesthetic-- hard brick and moss crawling up the sides of choice buildings-- with modernity, like tall, multifunctional study areas paved with glass and lighter materials. Although some don't like the really hard and heavy bricks, it makes everything incredibly sturdy which is a necessity in hurricane-ridden Florida. Drainage systems are really good too so when the storms come rolling in, rain boots and a good umbrella will help you stomp through more flooded zones but high sidewalks and multiple paths make things a whole lot easier. University of Florida is also really big on consciousness efforts. Campus- and the surrounding area- is riddled with wildlife and nature. This makes for a pleasing overall aesthetic but TONS of needed shade from these massive trees when the sun is beating down. And it makes for nice outdoor areas to study! Looks aside, things are spaced out on campus. It might take a while to walk to where you want to get to, but you'll encounter restaurants, bathrooms, stops and other resources along the way. Unless you are, of course, going to the Lakes. That's a little different. There are amazing activities on campus! So many events, clubs, and organizations that it's honestly really hard for someone to keep track of them all. The arts college, although a little bit underfunded, makes the most of what it's got and there's a club dedicated for basically every major. This really helps out when you want to network or just have someone to help out when you're beginning classes. The downsides are pretty obvious. You're in North Florida, largely surrounded by woodlands. If you don't like all that nature, it's not a great scene. Gainesville itself is more town than city; the area around UF, like Butler Plaza, Archer Road, Midtown and Downtown are city-like but nothing compared to the more urban locations. Midtown and Downtown are great for bar-hopping, restaurateurs or hip kids who want to record shop, see movies, or have a really cool place to sit and study. But it can get old quickly-- it's up to you as a person to keep your experiences fresh! The events that happen around town help with that; there's always a band, a quiz night, a gallery show, a new museum exhibition, a new party to go to. Some dorms are new and amazing. Most dorms are old and... incredibly intriguing. The Murphree area is the oldest area on campus and has some of the best dorms and some of the most questionable dorm-choices. It's also really important you know where things are in location to your dorm because some housing options are INCREDIBLY far from where your classes could or could not be. Doing research, mapping out the massive property that is UF, and planning really helps when tackling this college. But the experiences are amazing, the staff is a mix of characters good AND bad but always helpful, and it's honestly really pretty here. When the stress of school starts to gut you, taking a breath and going for a walk to the library can even be a super relaxing and rewarding experience. There are so many resources on campus to help with the needs students have that it's almost daunting how ready they are to help. Does everything go perfectly? No! But the college tries its best and for that, it can't exactly be faulted in my opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Florida is great. It's got great facilities, plenty of food choices (even for vegans), and a great transportation system. Some older buildings are being renovated and upgraded. Class sizes are getting a bit on the larger side, but professors are usually pretty good about holding office hours.
