There is a ton of student pride at UF and student life is great.

Health & Safety:
There are lots of blue light security stations and the campus is well lit. SNAP is available to pick up students at night.
College Sophomore 2013-05-14T15:18:48Z
The campus is easy to navigate. The buildings are all unique and beautiful.

I got the financial aid that I needed, however I am still looking for more to cover my growing expenses.

My program is competitive, but this competition helps me to strive to be a better student. In addition, the Nursing program at UF is ranked as one of the top in the country.

The dining hall hours did not immediately fit my schedule, as I woke up earlier than the dining hall opened. Other than that, there were many options and the food was of good quality. And if I didn't like anything, there were always supplies to create sandwiches.

Public Transportation is good, but some of the specialty bus routes frequently are out of service, making it less convenient for those who use those routes on a regular basis.

I received a small amaount of frinancial aid, but it was easily disbursed without any issues. One should definitely be aware of the financial policies and requirements prior to applying.

UF offers so many ways tobve involved and have fun. There are countlesss open spaces for thosse who like to enjoy the outddoors and indoor areas for those who prefer to be more secluded. Not a day goes by where there is aabsolutely nothing to do on ccampus, the buzz is nonn-stop.
College Sophomore 2013-05-13T20:48:56Z
UF provides amazing opportunites when it comes to club organnizations that allow people to network and advance their planed career paths.

Alcohol is pretty noticeable on campus but other drugs aren't very popular, at least on campus
College Senior 2013-05-13T18:03:10Z
There are always lots of students so there are lecture hall classes. Its easier to do things on your own but there are those few smaller classes with group projects. Pretty good school and workload depends on your major.
College Senior 2013-05-13T18:01:26Z
Football has gotten better, I guess but the other sports are really good.
College Senior 2013-05-13T18:00:02Z
2 Dining halls with average food. There are hubs and convenience stores around campus with Subway, Chic-Fil-A and KFC but these close early. Then there's the Reitz Union where the portions are a bit smaller than when you eat off campus and the food is average too. It gets boring eating from on campus locations and expensive too.

Gainesville is a college town with not many things to do besides what's provided by UF, eating at restaurants, shopping, going to parks, and the mall.
College Sophomore 2013-05-13T02:59:19Z
I would say that the diversity is pretty great at UF. We have an entire International House, although its not required that you live there if you're an international student. There are many different houses/clubs/organizations that represent cultures and religions such as Krishna, Hillel, Chabad, Muslim Student Organization, Caribbean student organization, and so many more. A large majority of the students are liberal, and accept and support all sexual orientations through clubs such as GSA and LGBTQ of UF. Although a large portion of the campus is liberal, I have seen many advertisements for "Gator Republicans" and groups for other political parites.
College Sophomore 2013-05-13T02:54:20Z
I think that the strictness is pretty fair. As long as you're not throwing loud parties in your dorm, the RAs pretty much stay out of your hair. Police aren't too strict except for parking if you respect them and stay out of their hair. If you do get caught for drinking in the dorms or being drunk while you're in the dorms, the RA has to write you up and call the police so DON'T get caught.
College Sophomore 2013-05-13T02:47:23Z
Sports at UF are great! School spirit is super important to every student at the school, no doubt! Even if you don't have football tickets, you go to tailgates! GO GATORS!
College Sophomore 2013-05-13T02:43:52Z
Lots of frat parties on the weekends, lots of clubs/bars are 18+ and some are even free on some nights of the week. Buses go downtown so its easy to get around before 3 AM and midtown is easily accessible walking from campus.
College Sophomore 2013-05-13T02:09:20Z
Compared to UCF and FSU, the clubs are smaller and not as popular. Most students over 21 go to midtown and enjoy the bars.
College Sophomore 2013-05-13T02:07:59Z
Greek life is very popular. Although "rush" is very stressful for new members. Greeks are very involved on campus and can live in the house, in a dorm, or off campus. Greeks and non-greeks kind of do their own thing.
College Sophomore 2013-05-13T02:04:46Z
Good environment, lots going on, chemistry department is a bit unfair.
College Junior 2013-05-10T23:18:49Z
The process of getting into my major was a breeze. I told my old advisor I wanted to switch from my old major and then I went to my new advisor and she switched me on the spot.
College Junior 2013-05-10T23:16:52Z
The public bus system is catered to the University. Also it's free for students.
College Junior 2013-05-10T23:15:40Z
The dining halls food is not terrible but it's also not something you want to keep eating for more than a semester or two. There's a good variety of chain restaurants on campus though.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
