The campus is so big we transport via bus that runs through campus, but parking is horrible. They give priority to staff and then again parking decal costs a couple of hundred of dollars for the year.

Club Scene – there are some bars and clubs within 5 miles from the campus which is good so people dont have to travel far.

This school has some of the best professors, they are so knowledgable and professional. They genuinely care about the development of their students and are always available to help students understand the subject matter.

Drugs & Alcohol – The visibility of drugs and alcohol is not apparent at all as the guidelines for students are simple and clear as agreed upon by the student body and the University.

Off Campus – The off-campus housing selection is less known as the University provides sufficient advertisement. They offer an affordable alternative to on campus housing.

There are so many students that it's difficult to obtain your first choice. However, the quality of the system is efficient in the campus housing.

Face it, Florida is hot a lot of the time, almost unbearably in the summer, and it rains. However, no snow during the winter, and we do actually have gorgeous springtime weather in march and april.

Football Rules! We are crazy spirited, and football is king around here, you have to go to the games, at least a few, even if you don't like football, its an amazing experience. The great thing is we also have a ton of other sports teams that are amazing as well. Basketball games are really fun and spirited as well, and our softball and baseball teams are both top ten in the country at the moment. Our gymnastics and swimming teams are also very highly ranked, and win SEC championships almost every year. We also have a ton of intermurals for students to participate in that are really fun.

Health & Safety:
Good Campus Safety – There are 'blue lights' placed throughout campus that will get a police officer to you in 60 seconds. The non-emergency number for the police is posted everywhere, and they are more than willing to come check out a suspicious situation for you. Also, the Student Auxiliary Night Patrol (SNAP) van is a great, reliable way to get around campus after 6pm, and runs until 2am. It's much safer than walking around campus at night. There are also signs posted in front of wooded paths warning students not to take them at night, just in case.

The Greek system in the University of Florida is a great group to be part of. by joining a fraternity or sorority the campus will seem much smaller and you will get to know tons of new people. Definitely something to be a part of. It Dominates Life at UF

Strong Pride – Attending the University of Florida can be a very exciting experience. the school pride is one of the most famous attributes of the univesity. everywhere you go people will be wearing gator colors and this unifies the student body as a whole though out the whole nation.

Terrible and Takes Forever. Like I said in the title, it takes forever to get anything. I never receive financial aid and I'm not exactly banking over here. Not to mention, at the office it seems like they want to help the school obviously more than you.

Buses Suck and There Is No Parking: Start Looking for a Better Option – Buses are absolutely terrible with their scheduling over the summer and the routes available are halved. Over the school year, once it hits 5 o'clock, you could be sitting around for over an hour waiting for a bus. The parking could not be more impossible and when you do find a spot, there's a 75% chance you'll get a b.s. ticket. Walking, biking, and zipcars are the best way to go.

Guys & Girls:
Everyone You Could Imagine – Ranging from the skaters to the very Southern frat stars, this school literally has every type of person known to existence. Although it is not very hard to find someone attractive, do not get your hopes up that they are interested in anything serious. Amazingly enough, you cannot stereotype the students to have one "look," with the exception of Panhellenic sororities who always dress properly and look polished.

Just Don't Be Stupid – My college is meant to help students build a future, not ruin it. If you are a screw up and do stupid things then you will feel consequences. By no means does the strictness prevent haveing a good time.

Unique School – One thing that I think sticks out is Krishna Lunch. It is where Hare Krishnas come to the library lawn on the weekdays and serve vegan lunch at a low price. I have yet to have it, but I hear it is delicious.

Awesome Experience – I have been at UF for only a year so far, and it has been the greatest year of my life. I already know I will be telling my kids some (but not all) of my stories of school.

Melting Pot – I feel that there is a wide array of different nationalities on campus. I am pretty sure every country is represented on campus.
College Senior 2011-06-07T05:24:55Z
Modern and Well Kept – There is something for everyone on this campus, it just depends on the student going out and getting it. All the facilities are well kept and clean with technology that help makes living and working easy. However we could improve our wireless network which can be inconsistent at times.

Just Settling in – I have just recently switched to my major last semester so I am still getting used to its requirements. Thus far the classes have been challenging but manageable with good work ethic. I have not been to office hours yet, but the professors continue to mention their availability. Research opportunities are present, it all counts down on the student and whether are not they are wiling to work.

Its Hot – in the spring and summer semesters, it gets extremely hot. especially since you usually walk everywhere. having a car or scooter makes things easier

Guys & Girls:
Greek Life – As a whole, girls who are in a sorority tend to be more open to having fun. They are also incredibly hot, for the most part. The guys in greek life are a lot of fun too, throwing parties and doing philanthropies and such.

Broward Is the Most Central Dorm – Upcoming freshmen usually pick Broward or Jennings hall to live in their first year. My recommendation would be to live in Broward the first year until you get a feel for the campus because its the closest dorm to everything.

Buses are really good for all the students. Since we get to ride the buss free because of our student ID's, it makes things a lot easier. Only problem is that you may be late to class if the buses fill up too much.

It is crazy in Gainesville. It seems to be very busy everyday of the week. Doesn't matter where you are in Gainesville, something is always happening.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
