Dorms the Size of a Prison Cell – Living on campus was great, you lived right next to all of your classes only requiring a 10 minute walk maximum. It was a great way to meet other students your age to start your college social life. On the other hand, the physical size of the room was difficult to manage. Thankfully, i roomed with a friend from high school so i did not have to deal with living so close to a complete stranger.

Archer Rd – Archer Rd running parallel to UF's campus has almost every chain restaurant you can think of. There are also many cute privately owned cafes and pizarias nearby as well. There are so many discounts available; at the beginning of every semester all students recieve a coupon book.

The Boring Gainesville – Nothing compares to being raised by South Beach and Las Olas; with all the number one ranked, up-beat restaurants and trendy shopping plazas i could never be more entertained. Gainesville, on the other hand, is very old with not much going on. Other than the college itself and the nightlife, there is nothing else promoting the life in Gainesville.

Affordable & Beautiful Apartments! Gainesville has a large variety of options when it comes to choosing off campus housing. It is easy to find whatever one is looking for - whether it be a place close to campus or a newly built, fully-furnished unit... or both!

Great Variety – UF's dining hall food has a good variety of entrees, including healthy items. Unfortunately, the quality of the food could be better. In terms of restaurants, UF has plenty, ranging from fast food (like Chick Fil A) to pizza joints (Papa John's) and restaurants (like Chili's). The number of Starbucks locations is a great plus, because these coffee shops tend to be open late providing students with a boost of energy during late night study hours.

College: Have It Your Way – There is freedom at every corner on campus. Whether you want to express your opinion about a political topic or protest a school decision, you can pretty much do whatever you want. The administrators are not too strict but watch out for the local police.

Guys & Girls:
Everything You'd Expect – At the University of Florida, there is a wide variety of people. This means that no matter what you're looking for, you can probably find it. The guys display an elegant, Southern charm while the girls maintain the highest standards (unless you join the Greek world).

Each floor you go up, the noise goes down. Open LATE for finals. Can bring food and drink for those long cram sessions during finals.

Lots of buses, they come pretty often especially on campus. Not a lot of service on weekends though, which kind of sucks.

Don't Care Much for Greeks – I find most of the Greek people I meet to be superficial and snobby. They seems to only be able to talk about their Greek functions. I guess if you're into that sort of thing it's cool.

The downtown area might look pretty ghetto, but it's fun nonetheless. Just make sure to pregame. Parties are pretty legit too. Don't go to midtown if you're under 21 though.

Campus Hosing – Some of the rooms are full of mold. The dorms are small and uncomfortable, and their roommate matching service is awful

There are several options right across from campus and I prefer them to on campus eating. The prices on campus are insane. Even our subway doesn't follow the 5$ footlong deal, a sandwhich drink and chips comes close to 10$.

Nice Climate for Studying Well – I haven't started school yet, but I know for sure that it offers a great environment for student to learn while having fun at the same time. There is always something going on campus if it's not a party it's a game, I will definitely go there for my studies.

Guys & Girls:
Girls Are Easy Going – At University of Florida you'll find people from all background and countries , the girls are really hot and friendly. The students are really helpful and some of them know the campus like the palm of their hands, no matter what you'll always find someone to help you around campus.

All Aboard! Being that I catch the bus to get on the other side of campus from my dorm to my classes, weather can bad factor. Bus stops on campus do not roofs for shelter. I sometimes go into class looking at a wet rat.

Three modes of transportation at UF: Bus, very easy, no cost, walk, ok except when it is cold or rainey,again no cost or ride a bike, but watch out you you get hit by a car. Once you find a spot to park your car, sometimes taking up to 30 minutes to find, park the car and leave it. Thank goodness, I live on campus

Very Safe – I have late classes and always see the security and police on watch in the areas..The paths near the campus may be able to be a little more lit up solar maybe.

After school hours parking is lifted so you can park wherever, but it can be difficult to find some. On game days however, forget about it. You're better off going into the neighborhoods and paying to park in front of someones house. Campus is so covered with people that you can barely walk.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
