What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida is an amazing school. There is your stereotypical Greek life and definitely the normal amount of college partying that takes place on campus. Overall, however, UF is focused on academics. The courses are rigorous; the teachers are brilliant. Each place you turn there are new opportunities to get involved, to make a difference, and to learn more about yourself and your potential major and career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved my time at UF. The faculty is great; the staff is friendly and helpful for the most part; and your fellow students are just wonderful. I really believe that there is no better university in the state of Florida. The only major problem at UF is parking. There are not nearly enough spots, and students regularly drive around for 20-30 minutes trying to find a spot. More lots would help, but this doesn't seem to be a priority for the university right now. That being said, UF is a great experience overall. I am proud to be a Gator, and I hope very much to see my children go to UF one day.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida has a great culture both at the university and in the town of Gainesville. Students and faculty are all very warm and welcoming and always available to assist someone in need. The residents of Gainesville are a mixed bag of people from all walks of life!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a decent school when it comes to classes. There are plenty of student organizations and programs to get involved in. The real opportunities are in academic research. We have state of the art facilities and hundreds of great minds. I recommend getting involved in this as soon as possible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a first year Interior Design student here and I honestly love it. Here at UF I have gotten the opportunity to make new friends and build relationships with my professors in the short 3 months that I have been attending. I would strongly suggest that people consider this school for any major choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida has a great reputation among universities in the southeast and even beyond to the entire country. There are so many opportunities available at all times and a number of majors to choose from. Definitely the best school Florida can offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida's main focuses are academics and sports. Everyone works hard in their classes and is driven to succeed, but they all get together on game days to tailgate and cheer on the Gators. UF is the perfect combination of academics and extra curriculars. Whether you're into sports or not, you'll definitely get into the school spirit on game days. If sports aren't your thing, there are over a thousand clubs and organizations you can join that range in everything from video games to engineering to Quidditch. There's also a good amount of people involved in Greek life. On campus housing is reasonably priced and conveniently close to most classrooms and lecture halls. Off-campus housing can vary in reviews, but there are some nice, clean apartments that are not too far from campus. There is also lots of free transportation to most local areas provided by the school. There's not much to do around campus, but there's plenty of night life on campus. There are people who party every night and there are others who only go out on weekends or don't party at all. You can also find night life downtown, but most people don't feel as secure as they do on/near campus. The dining halls usually serve a good variety of food that caters to all, but if not, there are also plenty of fast food restaurants around campus. Most professors are very helpful and want you to succeed. They have scheduled office hours or provide you with how to contact them or your TA's for extra assistance. The libraries are always packed with students too, and free tutoring is provided for most classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida provides it's students with a beautiful, well-rounded campus with an extraordinary and diverse student body. I've been at the University of Florida for two years now, and I can consider Gainesville home. Although the environment is cozy enough, sometimes it feels as though the academics of the school make everything more difficult than what it should be. I know UF is known to be one of the best schools in FL, but sometimes, the classes are very difficult which can possibly discourage other students. It took me a while to realize what opportunities I have in front of me, and adjusting to the work ethic here at UF has been a struggle. If you're looking for a hard core party school, Gainesville nightlife is nothing but mediocre. It can get quite boring and over run, but I mean, IT'S GREAT, UF

What kind of person should not attend this school?

You should not attend UF if you are not open-minded, driven for success, or lazy. Just getting by is not going to cut it. People who come to the University of Florida with that mindset and attitude usually do not make it past sophomore year, I have seen it happen many times. If you are someone who feel as though you don't have to study in order to pass, this school is not for you.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing at UF is the overall lack of diversity. When people mention diversity at UF they often mean exchange students from other countries. The sad truth is that overall the school lacks diversity amongst students as well as faculty. It is a predominantly white Institution and its noticeable once you step foot on campus. Another thing is that UF prioritizes their athletes much more than they do regular students, its pretty sad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's one of two schools in Florida that have Animal Science as a major and the only University in Florida with an AVMA accredited College of Veterinary Medicine. That's why I go here. There's more resources than anyone can actually remember. Last year I learned that students can get free legal advice and physical evaluations. It's well worth the cost of tuition considering everything that is available on campus. Not everything is easy to find, but if you dig a little you can get a lot out of UF. If it fits your situation then go here without a second thought.
