What is your overall opinion of this school?

My time at UF was fantastic, I would not trade the experiences, friendships, and life lessons I have learned there. UF excels in both academics and sports. Football is the highlight of any fall semester regardless of how well, or poor, the team is doing. In all kinds of weather, we all stick together. Traditional freshmen classes tend to be overpopulated, it is harder to get one on one time with your professors, but they do keep great office hours and provide help after lecture classes. The upper division classes are the best. The class sizes are smaller and you can have a relationship with your professors and other classmates. UF offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees that will get you on your way. Campus life provides lots of extra-curricular options with all kinds of interest. The programming board (RPB) on campus provides excellent events, movies, and festivals for students to enjoy throughout the year. Gainesville is a small town which is centered around the university, in recent months it has been developed to attract people other than university students. Apartments are affordable and the city provides an excellent bus service that is free for students as long as they have their student ID. It provided that traditional college experience while challenging me academically. The university is not without faults, during my freshman year a fraternity threw a blackface party which the university hosted a town hall meeting to gather student input to make sure this doesn't occur again. I believe the university has a long way to go in terms of diversifying its campus, but they are making the necessary steps. Go Gators!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the University of Florida. We are number nine out of the top ten best public universities in the United States. I am currently in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences which I believe is the best college there is. The professors are personable and actually care about the students. The labs are very interesting and hands on. UF is a great place to be. I am an in a sorority, an ambassador for the college, a couple clubs, and attend all the gator athletics. There is so much energy and passion from all of the students and faculty, you feel so special to be a part of an institution bigger than yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Florida has a solid reputation of high academic standards. UF also has excellent post graduate programs for higher education. Their expectations are high and they have a high rate of 4 year graduation rate. Excited to be a Gator! Greek life is very important and it encourages socializing and group functions. It is a great way to meet new people and learn about UF campus. UF has a very loyal alumni along with a high selection process for incoming freshman. I do wish that UF would offer more scholarships to their students and assistance with many of the initial fees for sorority/fraternity. Many students are unable to pay the high costs but still wish to be part of Greek life. I am interested in work/study programs on campus to help me pay for the campus bills.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the University of Florida a lot. I part take in one of the club sports teams and couldn't have been happier in my choice. I immediately found a place where I can find people of same interests that support me, all the way to the national title this year! Overall the University has opened my eyes to so much more, even if I am from Gainesville, UF is so much more than what meets the eye. I couldn't have chosen a better place to spend my undergraduate at.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Florida, from the outside is a beautiful, chaotic and restless body that seems to operate effortlessly and effectively. But once you actually become a part of it, it is easy to lose yourself. My freshman year, I was so excited and ready to become a part of this beautiful institution, but here I am in my second year, feeling lost and confused. I haven't quite found my niche and it makes me feel like there is no place for me here. The culture of UF is so many things. It's collective happiness and sadness all in one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Love my school. Best decision I ever made. It’s hard adjusting your first year because the campus is so big and you get swallowed up, but once you join a club or two you find your people easily. Great amenities on campus. I love the free yoga classes at the student rec center.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In general, the University of Florida is excellent. Academic level is high, there are plenty of high-quality extracurriculars to participate in, and it’s easy to be surroundwd by good people. On the fringes, I have some more criticisms, however. It often feels like the university is just after your money, with loads of unneeded fees and fines, and getting a straight and clear answer to a question from an advisor can seem impossible at times.
