There are so many parts to campus because the campus is huge, and all of them have a pretty different look. Overall, the campus is beautiful.

Jenna

To someone who's never seen the University of Florida it looks well HUGE! The population is large, the campus is expansive, and the school spirit is larger than life. But these are all GREAT things about the University. The large population allows you to meet all types of people and to pick your new best friends from a batch of students brimming with creativity and talent. The large campus is only large for like the first week of classes, but once you get used to seeing the same buildings you definitely get a feel for exactly where you are on campus at any point in time. And the school spirit...well let's just say that I'm not sure if I've applauded in a non-Gator Chomp fashion in the last four years. There are so many reasons why It's Great to Be A Florida Gator!

A large school with an extremely tough curriculum. Definitely satisfying to study hard and succeed and to see what I am capable of.

Vanessa

If you are looking for a school with numerous career development opportunities throughout school, many diverse types of people with different personalities and backgrounds and cultures, a school where you can meet hallmates your freshman year that you end up living with off campus for the remainder of college, food prices that accomadate the college wallet, that has a beautiful campus where students feel so comfortable as to just hang out on the lawn and take naps, study, play frisbee, bring their dogs, the University of Florida is the only place to be.

Nathalie

To me, UF is like it's own little world. It makes me feel like I'm not in Florida. It has such an old feel to it (in a good way!). There are trees everywhere and gardens. The buildings are all made of stone. UF has no need to envy any Ivy League schools. It's truly a sight to see! UF is an open campus, not closed like other schools, meaning the streets are a part of the town and regular people can drive by. This also makes the school freakishly huge. But don't worry! There's a bus system that takes you everywhere you need to go, not just at UF but the bus system can take you anywhere you need to go in Gainesville, and it is HIGHLY efficient. I know, it's surprising, especially for a small town in Florida. But it's true. On campus, I don't really have to wait very long to get on a bus. 10-15 minutes tops! The gym on campus is just amazing! It's HUGE and modern! The food court at the student center is like walking into a mall. You have so many choices, it's amazing. I really encourage people to go check the school out. It's truly a beautiful campus! It's very welcoming too. P.S. The bus system is free for UF students with their student ID. :)

S

The University of Florida is large and full of activities.

Madison

A brick beauty that, despite being so large, provides a sense of belonging to the Gator Nation through athletics and academics.

Katherine

This is a big school with lots of people, so there is plenty opportunity to get out there and find something you will love, and others who also enjoy similar activities as you do. Sometimes you may have to search for it, other times it's right in front of you. Though, don't get too distracted, because this still is a school, and you don't want to overload too soon. That being said, it will be a wonderful journey!

Katherine

The University of Florida is super awesome and incredibly social!

Jared

A united community where students can come together based on common interests and are altruistic , intelligent individuals who will go the extra mile to help anyone in need withough making any judgement of who they are or where they come from. They must be selfless and genuine towards one another and have the passion to academically and personally strive for success.

We are the Gator Nation, it is not a school but, my home where guidance and support allows us to seek our goals while building relations from the foundation which we are given because the University of Florida is not made up of just a body of people; although we are all different we are here together as a nation that shares a common spirit and pride.
