Very Convenient – Every facility at The University of Florida is a place where everything can happen. The gyms are huge and very comfortable for students. The bookstore has lots of items needed for students, and the food court has several food chains that benefits each student's financial and cultural needs. In other words, the University of Florida has the best facilities that they could offer.

Chinese and Pizza – It is very easy to have food delivered from off-campus restaurants. China Star is a great place to get Chinese food. Marco's pizza always delivers in under 30 minutes and has wonderful cheesy bread. Both places are relatively cheap and offer great service.

The bus system is terrific. Multiple buses run the same routes and there are many routes that they take. They are very convenient and are free on campus.

Dorm Rooms – The dorm bathrooms are cleaned everyday and everyone on the floor is friendly towards each other. The dorms are mostly located in the middle of campus so they are very convenient and average about 2000 dollars a semester.

The Inside Scoop – UF is a very large school with many prospective students, and therefore a lot of extracurricular activities to participate in (school programs). However, there are so many students that competition to get into some programs is intense and there are never any small classes for activities.

The Parking situation in Gainesville is horrible in general. The first night I arrived in the city, I parked my car for five minutes to go into a building to pick up my parking pass, and there was a boot on my car after five minutes; the towing people saw my pass and would not accept it. They were VERY rude. There are too many students without enough spaces also.

There will be drugs everywhere you go in America, but there is a particularly high level of marijuana consumption by the students at UF. There is not too many very harmful drugs, but there is alot of underage drinking that I have witnessed as well.

Depends on where you are and things like who your RA is. Don't get caught and you'll be fine, and it's very easy not to get caught.

Haven't noticed a huge difference in the types of people. Campus is very diverse in race and culture but it's not hugely important to me.

Gator Dining – Love Gator Corner Dining Hall, Fresh Foods at Broward isn't quite up to par however. I usually save flex bucks until the last week or two then binge on the food around campus. Love Homezone too.

What Are They – I have never used any drugs and I really haven't witnessed anyone else doing them either so if it is happening I really don't know what or even who.

Party at Your Favorite House – The partys in my college are great you can always count on having plenty to drink before the club and definately after. I guess you can call most kids up at night and just start a party no matter what. Everybody loves to drink and can't wait to start the next night.

Computer and Electronical Devices – I would have to say that the computersin our school are great, but I have no use for them due to the fact that I have my own computer and printer. I really don't use any of the schools computer labs, or for printing but I do use the internet and my school has great connections all around campus.

This University opens a lot of options and opportunities to its students. It has a great balance of both academics and social life. And it lovess sports! :) Everyone is genuinely friendly; people actually walk around and say "Go Gators!" to each other, just like they do in the commercials.

Its There – There are a decent number of clubs, many of which are 18+. Also there are many parties and hosted events. But partying isnt always for everyone, which is why this university is great. With the amount of activities offered on campus (almost all of which are free), it isnt even necessary to go out.

Health & Safety:
Very Safe – I have never felt unsafe on campus. Although there are a lot of trees everything is very well lit and police officers canvas the area at night. Also, there is a free van service that takes you anywhere you need to go on campus once it gets dark.

Buses Run Regularly – Buses run regularly, both on campus and around the city of Gainesville. They are free with a student ID. Most people ride the bus to school from apartments.

Everyone Loves Gator Football – Gator athletics are huge! Everyone loves the Gators. Football is probably the most popular among students, alumni, and the general public alike. There are always other sporting events going on, though, from basketball to lacrosse to swim meets. The facilities are wonderful and the fans are die hard.

Guys & Girls:
Very Diverse – UF has a very diverse population. Of course you have your "typical" college students, but there are so many different varieties of guys and girls. Depending of what program you are in, you may have some older students or international students. There are many students from other countries. Greek like is big at UF, so you will see a lot of girls wearing Greek t-shirts and bags with their chapter initials.
College Senior 2010-11-27T03:48:30Z
UF is a place of opportunities. If you're not into the greek scene, you can find fun in other places. If you are a fun of fraternity/sorority life, it's definitely available to you.

Freshmen Experience – Living on campus has been pretty convienent for me. I have a dining hall less than a block away and the amentities such as laundry, electricity, a/c are all pretty nice. Then again, I reside in newly renovated dorm. Go Gators!
College Senior 2010-11-22T17:44:04Z
Lovely Libraries – There are many libraries to choose from on campus. Each one offers a unique study atmosphere, and although there are seperate libraries committed to certain colleges all provide an excellent space to study! Go libraries! :)

Variety of Places to Live. They got them all. High to low level living. Depends on your budget. RTS has a million stops.

Tons of Restaurants Around Campus – There are plenty of places off campus for UF students to eat. Many places on the east side of campus offer students locally owned establishments to dive into like Leonardo's, Farrah's, and Reggae Shack Cafe. The west side of campus offers students the more commercial route with the run of the mill fast food joints and sit-down restaurants.

There could be a lot more variety. The food is way overpriced.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
