Health & Safety:
I know some of the "security" guards on our campus...the idea that they would keep students safe is laughable.
College Senior 2011-06-03T21:24:56Z
There are definitely all kinds of people on our campus.

I personally love the off campus dining. There are tons of choices. It's very convenient because there are a ton right on the edge of campus. However, not many place offer student discounts.

There are a plethora of computer labs on campus with printing stations in each. The network reliability, speed, and wireless access is great in the places I have been. However, a personal computer is a necessity for class.

NO COMPLAINTS – I feel that they gave me all the money I need to attend school. I didn't have to take any loans during my first year there which is always a plus. I feel that my financial aid advisors were very helpful and always there whenever I or my parents had questions.

Guys & Girls:
Life Is Good in the Ville – I would say that a lot of UF students are in really good shape and take advantage of the gym. Most of the dudes are good-looking and a lot of the girls are hot.

A lot of my friends rave about off-campus life in Gainesville. I like staying on-campus because of my financial aid package, but I have looked into prices in apartments and other facilities and they are competitively priced and nicely furnished.

Should Still Be #1 Party School in the Nation. Fraternity row offers most of what the underage partier wants. Hot guys and free alcohol. And if you get bored of that there's always midtown right across the street with things to do and plenty of people right there ready to party. It really doesn't get much better than that. Whether you're pre-gaming, pre-pre-gaming, or just wanting to party any day of the week, there's always something to do.

The Best – Greek life is amazing at UF. We dominate the scene. If you are not in the Greek life it is quite difficult to find parties or good tailgates.
College Senior 2011-06-03T20:45:48Z
The dorms are quite nice. But the roommate system isn't the best. There isn't any that matches you two on personality basis.

So Much to Keep You Busy – Gainesville has so much to do. Whether you want to work out at the gym, go out on the town, or grab something to eat you are only a quick bus ride to your destination. The Greek life makes Gainesville even more fun, providing a lot of things to do.

RTS Is Great – Buses are the way to go around campus. It is free for students to ride the bus with a student I.D. however, the do fill up pretty quickly in the busier parts of the day. There is usually a bus at a stop every 10-15 minutes but if it gets full for that route, you may be waiting for awhile. The Later Gator is great, safe alternative for students who want to go out at night, as opposed to driving.

There are limited opportunities for students to park on campus and these spots generally fill up quickly. Students do have to pay for decals to park on and off-campus in designated lots but this never guarantees that they will have a place to park.

Gatornation - School Spirit – There is a tremendous sense of school spirit at the University of Florida - both on and off campus. Once you are a Gator you are always a Gator - regardless of what you did your time there. Huge fan support of the athletics programs and the athletic facilities are top notch.

At UF we have a WIDE variety of students on campus, all different races and ethnicities! People tend to think

Dorm Life – Great securely, good food, great place to hangout and make friends

They are there if you want them, but there is not peer pressure to use.

5 libraries, each one with a different field of study, each unique, but with more material than could ever be imagined.
College Junior 2011-06-01T19:55:02Z
The campus meal plans are great. You are able to select the plan that fits you and some include flex buck which allow you to eat at places off campus as well

Great Experience – I can't complain about anything. If you like state of Florida, you will Love UF

My program which is music was easy at first and then progressively got harder. The first year is weed out classes where you are only expected to have good attendance.

I think the combination of all the programs, social scene and facilities makes this school unique

The parking on campus is tough to find. There is usually parking that you have to pay for and even then it is pretty far from places you have to walk.
If you park on inappropriate space you can get a ticket. Sometimes you can protest the ticket and they might reduce the fee depending on your explanation

The Social Life of the Gator Nation – The nightlife at University of Florida can vary. Gainesville is a college town and we do not have a luxury of being near a big town. Most clubs and bars are located on the same street. The bars are great and sometimes 18 year olds are allowed. Clubs atmosphere is great too but not as good as in the big cities. Underage nightlife is more strict that it used to be so it is better to just have a house party. Transportation is excellent as you have taxi, buses and even a program called SNAP that will take you anywhere.

The only time UF really cracks down on anything is speeding and in the dorms. The campus-wide speed limit is 20mph, but it's not hard to stick to because you'll probably get stuck behind a slow bus anyways. As to underage drinking, if you're drinking on campus, cops don't really care because most of them are alumni of fraternities at UF and understand.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
