The food is greasy and definitely not healthy. All my friends with meal plans gained at least 10 pounds in the first semester. Very happy with my choice to not take that option, I'm healthier and happier because if it today.

Academics are the focus of most students at UF but at the same time students know how to manage schedules so fun is still attainable and all time isn't spent studying. The professors feel the same, that school is important but so is a balance of all things in daily life.

The gyms and activity facilities are wonderful on campus. The equipment is very modern and allows you to get the most out of your workout.

Normal Florida weather so it's great almost 100% of the time if you don't mind the heat. The winters aren't freezing so you can still enjoy the outdoors.

Most buildings on campus are very historic, and with historic buildings comes need for repair. The school is working toward making all repairs and updating the interior of buildings.
College Senior 2013-07-10T18:33:33Z
Most professors and teaching assistants care greatly for students. The classes are challenging as well as engaging.

I am a member of Greek Life at UF and couldn't picture my life without it. It really makes a school that is so incredibly large, a lot smaller. Greek Life gives you an opportunity to become involved in all aspects of student life, and always gives you something to do whether it be on weekends or during the week. They encourage involvement and connections. It is like being part of a family.
College Junior 2013-07-10T13:42:34Z
Every class I have has a very diverse student body. Greek life also has a very diverse student body. There are clubs for all sorts of interests, religions, ethnicities and orientations. I have friends that are very different from me and can be sure to meet more throughout my years at UF.

There are athletic centers in very accessible areas throughout the campus as well as a few libraries that is fun and inviting as well as quiet and studious. UF has many great traditions, as I am a tradition keeper, and events are easy to find. Not to mention that UF is a green campus.
College Sophomore 2013-07-09T16:30:10Z
There are many things offered at UF, especially with the new research grants. I hate how some programs have been taken away, like the Korean Language Program, but there's a lot going on in terms of campus life and it's easy to meet people.

There's the university, downtown, and the mall, but no great attractions. It's like a small town- movie theater, some quirky downtown events every now and again, and the mall fifteen minutes away. There isn't any big attractions, clubs, or anything really like that. It's a college town that's quiet except for the games and occasional events.

Public transportation is amazing. There are several buses that run by varying stops. Some buses cross paths so there's never a concern if you miss one bus - there will always be another option. Buses run late on campus and there is SNAP for later/early morning hours between 7 pm - 4 am.
College Sophomore 2013-07-07T16:50:47Z
Parking is the worst and expensive to have a permit.
College Sophomore 2013-07-05T19:08:58Z
It's very difficult to find spaces on campus and parking decals are pretty expensive. I would recommend walking or taking a bus.

I like the Biology major it determines the students who will and who won't be able to have a career in the science field. It is rigorous and when you understand more than other students it gives a sense of pride for learning and knowing more than others. The workload is very difficult but that isn't a problem since challenges are fun, faculty is very helpful in anything you need and there are job fairs for jobs or internships.
College Sophomore 2013-07-04T18:25:34Z
I was fairly confused about financial aid as a freshman but after your first semester and visiting the financial aid office you understand it better off and scholarships and grants are very important in college life.
College Sophomore 2013-07-04T18:23:16Z
Computers on campus are regular PCs but the printing is really good since you get 150 free pages of printing per semester the wireless speed is average but its due to so many users on it but there is wi-fi everywhere there is a building on campus. The need for a personal computer is key to do your assignments and be mobile wherever you go.
College Sophomore 2013-07-04T18:19:48Z
The campus is fairly strict about drug and alcohol abuse. Specially the RA's of the dorms they can get people arrested for drugs and also most people go to judicial housing which is a court that you plead your case.
College Sophomore 2013-07-04T18:16:02Z
The process of getting into my Biology major was easy since the program determines how tough of a student you are. The most important criteria is being able to handle rigorous classes and be sure that you want a career in a science related field if not the major and the "weed-out" classes will break you.
College Sophomore 2013-07-04T18:09:17Z
I plan on having an internship working at a lab or in a hospital since I am planning on going to medical school. An internship will open your connections in the world and networking s key in the real world. I am currently a peer mentor as an undergraduate this is similar to a teaching assistant job.

There are many different organizations always advertising in the middle of campus their different ethnic groups. There are so many diverse groups I couldn't count. There are also many houses and open meetings that anyone could go to. The racial diversity is large and many people have grouped with others that have the same political beliefs, relgion, sexual orientation, etc.
College Junior 2013-07-04T00:34:27Z
There are buses everywhere and are free if you are a student. They are convenient except when they break down, but that cannot be helped. They offer buses for those who decide to drink downtown in order to prevent drinking and driving. There is even a van on campus that will take students already on campus to somewhere else on campus at night so the students don't need to risk themselves late at night (the campus is very large).
College Junior 2013-07-04T00:32:43Z
There are many computers all over campus available to students. There are buildings I didn't even know had computers. And while some computer labs close in the afternoon some are open all day every day. They are very accessible to students and help out very much. Printing and wi-fi is available to everyone, as well.
College Sophomore 2013-07-02T03:34:58Z
As long as you know where to go, you can easily find great meals and deals all around town!
College Sophomore 2013-07-02T03:34:07Z
RTS bus systems could have left the same routes open for fall/spring as they do summer. Would be more convenient to get around the central heart of campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
