University of Florida Top Questions

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Michelle

My school is best know for being the best university in Florida. The professors care how their students do and are very passionate about their jobs. The value for the education is also the best in Florida, and one of the best in the ation.

Gabrielle

My favorite campus tradition would be when we sing "We Are the Boys from Ol' Florida" after the third quarter of every home game, and tailgating through the city.

Brittany

My all time favorite is singing the alma mater after the 3rd quarter of a football game. You put your arm around complete strangers (sometimes) and it doesn't feel strange at all! I love being apart of something so huge, and being the sentimental person I am, I almost always tear up.

Makayla

Our school used to be widely known for our football program back in the "Tebow days" but that era has since passed. Now I would say that we are known for our rigorous academics. Many refer to us as the best school in Florida and we have great medical and engineering programs.

Chrissy

My school is probably best known for its football team, the Florida Gators, and for the production of Gatorade. We are also academically known to have a very good school for medicine and a law school. And, of course, our Greek scene is pretty large and well-known. Most of the extra-curricular activities at the University of Florida have to do with sororities and fraternities.

Christianne Lei

My school is best known for football and the prestige of the campus. Football is a huge deal on and off campus around the area, and I really felt that when I first set foot at "The Swamp." I felt the energy and the unity that the fans felt as they cheered together. We're also famous for the incredible programs provided at UF. There isn't one person that hasn't found their muse on campus, we are a very tight knit and studious community.

Alissa

It's 9am on a Saturday morning during Fall Semester and no matter where you are you can distinctly hear the Florida Gator theme song blaring from the loud speakers of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Game days at UF might as well be considered a religious holiday because it is so important, so festive, and SO MUCH FUN. Imagine every single piece of grass with a car parked, a tent up, and the some hot dogs on the grill. Every single place you look you see orange and blue and someone gator chomping. The roar of the crowd in the stadium is so loud that even if you couldn't win the football lottery and get a ticket to go to the game you still feel like you're there. Students, Grad Students, Alumni, and Fans countdown for the first game day of every season and cry like babies on the last home game of the season. There is nothing better than Gator Football in the Swamp!!

Thats only true if that is something that one is looking for.

Matt

If there's one thing that is a quintessential part of UF it is the home football games in Fall. Our school pride and love for football is easily the best known thing about UF. Anyone driving through Gainesville during this time will witness a moving sea of orange and blue . People walk thirty minutes just to get to the stadium since parking is nonexistent anywhere on campus. People's differences no longer matter because we support our fellow Gators and the feeling of being a part of the Gator Nation is what UF is known for.

Taylor

University of Florida is known for our school spirit. Once you become a gator, you are a gator for life. The loyalty and the passion at this school is like no other. Gator Nation is more than a saying, it is an actual meaning of family in Gainesville. Even after graduation, you are still part of the university. The experience you get from the first football game describes why the University of Florida is more than a school, it is a family.

The Gators are always looking to fight for that win harder than anyone else and do it both on the field and off the field.

Katherine

My school is best known for research, which is a catch-22 because the extreme emphasis on scientific research comes at the expense of teaching and teacher-student involvement. Many professors are pressured to conduct research and publish their findings in order to secure tenure, but this hinders their ability/ restricts their time for effective teaching.

Sara

Football, athletics, strong academics, research, small town atmosphere

Samantha

Shands Medical Center is one of the top research hospitals in the world. Doctors and patients come from all of the world to do research and recieve ground breaking treatment.

Kylie

UF is best known for our football team and "friendly" students. Even though our team has not been doing so well this year (2010), the fans are still rooting our Gators and are just as loyal as always. As for our reputation as a party school, if depends on who you are. If you are not the type of person to go out and get drunk every weekend, there are so many people like you and very many options, such as Gator Nights. But, if you are a partier, I promise there are a lot of places to go!

The University of Florida is best known for its academics and of course its athletics because we dominate in class, as well as on the field. The list of majors we have to pick from encompasses anything anyone could want to major in. We have majors such as Packaging Science, Classics, and Pharmacy, which is my major. Not every university offers such a diverse list of majors, but the University of Florida makes sure every student has a chance to succeed in whatever field they are interested in.
