What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's really good, I have been in UF for almost two years now and it has been time very well spent. I've grown a lot as a person, and that is thanks to UF's expansive student body. It seems like there's always something happening, but not too much that it distracts me from my studies. Overall, I think it is a solid University for any student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Univeristy of Florida is a great college that is highly known for its academics and amazing professors. I love the school and the amount of student participation when it comes to football games, rallys, protests, concerts, etc. One thing that I do not like about the school is the campus is in a very bad city and the people that drive through the campus do not obey the signs and watch out for students walking. I have almost been hit about three or four times walking home at night. I love the atmosphere of the school and the people but the location of the campus is not ideal. I am glad I went to UF because I know I am going to get a good education that I can apply in my future career field of psychology.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a top ten public institution in the country and has one of the best research programs. Some teachers do not teach well, and there is still work to be done concerning the Computer Science department, but the quality of education found at UF cannot be found in any other Florida institution. I am proud to be a Gator!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Over the past 9 months, I have been honored to call the University of Florida not only my school, but my home. Attending to a school with over 50,000 students is a little daunting, but the university has a variety of organizations that allow everyone, regardless of their background, to feel included. The diverse population of the student body as well as faculty and staff provides not only a welcoming sense of inclusivity, but encourages people to learn and embrace others. Despite having a large Florida Gator fanbase for its sports, the University has a multitude of other extracurriculars and events: political speakers, career fairs, service projects, and we even had Big Sean come perform in honor of Black History Month (thanks to our Black Student Union)! In addition to all of The University of Florida has to offer outside of its classroom, UF is consistently ranked nationally in college polls. Most recently, The University of Florida was ranked #4 in "America's Best Value College" by Forbes. We were even ranked higher than Harvard and Stanford! The university holds academics to a high standard, and one must work hard to achieve good grades. However, professors have regular office hours that allow you to further inquire about lectures and coursework, and campus facilities are a great environment for learning. Overall, the past year I spent at the University of Florida was the best year of my life. I am sad that it is already over, but cannot wait to spend at least another 3 years going to UF and living in Gainesville, Florida. Go Gators!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is lively and energetic, and academics are highly stressed. My only problem is that since it's a predominantly white institution, minorities get overlooked a lot by higher officials. Racial incidences happen often on the campus and they're not publicized promptly or addressed by higher faculty with solutions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been a student at the University of Florida for a little over two years, and I have never been happier. Not only does this school provide opportunities for growth inside the classroom, but it also serves as an environment where a every person in its diverse group of students can find a place, and use the school's many resources to forge their own paths toward success and fulfillment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I applied to nine schools and I chose the University of Florida because this was the place I felt I would grow the most. I would say overall, it is Great to be a Florida Gator. There is something unparallel to the feeling of being part of the student section cheering on fellow Gators. The classes here are rigorous to the core. For your first semester, I would suggest taking it mediocre unless you are ready to be endlessly reviewing and studying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is likely typical of a large university, but when I started here as a graduate student, the experience was nothing like what I expected. Coming from a smaller university, I had no idea how a university community could perform at such a high level in sports, at the parties, and even in the classroom. Students here stress about exams not because they might fail, but because they might not get an A. The campus is such that the library and the fitness centers are open into the wee hours of the night, and it wouldn't be unusual to walk down University Avenue and see a student leaving the gym to get to the library, or leaving the library to get to a party. Occasionally you might see a student leaving the party to get to the library. This is a campus where everyone puts 150 percent into every activity and goal. This atmosphere creates a community bent on learning and networking. The "Gator Nation" is one of the largest alumni networks around and the peer pressure to excel pushes students to do their best everywhere. The level of "excellence" at UF is such that even the club sports athletes have more talent than some NCAA scholarship athletes. The only downside is that you might not see a professor. Undergraduate education is either large lecture or on-line. Often, labs and lower-level classes are taught by teaching assistants. This is the model used by larger research institutions like UF. If you need to have contact with your professors early on, UF is not right for you. Is this the college for you? to be honest, it can be overwhelming and there are a few flaws. If I came as an undergraduate I might have failed out by partying. If you're the type of person that has focus and drive, and a desire to excel with friends, then the University of Florida is right for you. Here, there's truly something for everybody,

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is a great institution that allows you room to both achieve academically and socially. Students and staff here are extremely nice and accepting of all types of people. All of the resources necessary to do well are provided and easily accessible.
