The varsity teams are good in almost every sport and are exciting to watch.

The food at gator dining is better than broward dining.
College Junior 2012-12-28T01:11:50Z
There are many different apartments to live in and most come fully furnished. Buses go to the apartments as well

Greek like at UF is average, its not a huge deal but they are definitely noticeable on campus. Some of them really do their part and are an asset to the community other are not. But I don't have first hand experience so I can't really say much

Plenty of bars, clubs and partying to do at the University of Florida. It definitely helps to be Greek (in a sorority or fraternity) but not required in order to have fun. Great prices, great location to the school and very fun!

Everything is very new, up-to-date and the very accessible. You get 500 pages of printing per semester and some labs have free printing within certain colleges. Overall, pretty great.

The college campus feel is great the surrounding town seems to revolve around UF. I will say though that traffic is pretty bad, the cops are bored and looking for trouble and that there is little to do if you don't like going to clubs or bars. Great sports, great food and everything is "college cheap" so it balances out.

The school focuses more on the safety and encouraging not to do drugs or alcohol rather than being naive and putting all of their efforts into prevention. The rules are put in place, rides are put in place to avoid DUI/DWI's and they have many programs set in place to help with prevention, awareness and incentives to avoid potential problems. UF definitely plays it well and while UF is a huge party school, they are a very successful and prosperous education establishment.

Guys & Girls:
All sorts of people, very diverse but almost all are smart

Public transportation is free as long as you show your UF ID. there are multiple bus stops around campus. the buses run frequently.

It's pretty good overall, but the Broward Dining Hall is very disorganized most of the time.
College Senior 2012-12-27T04:04:12Z
There are a ton of places to go to. Mi Apa is my favorite place to go. It is cheap and very tasty. Other places I like to go is Peach Valley which is a breakfast place. There are many different places for you to go to. Almost any kind of cuisine you want they have

The application process was difficult. It was also hard to get in touch with an advisor. I received some financial aid but not enough to cover all my needs.
College Senior 2012-12-27T03:55:37Z
Some of the dorms are far away from the center of campus but the experience is great for incoming freshmen.
Health & Safety:
There are several seminars throughout the semester explaining student safety, the Blue Light System, and drug and alcohol safety. There do seem to be quite a few stolen bikes around campus, such as broken locks and bikes stripped of there parts even when they're locked up, so it's important to register it with the campus police! Lastly, the police sent out emergency messages to students whenever a crime occurs with detailed information. Overall, UF seems like a pretty safe and secure learning environment.

There are many computers to choose from on campus, even one in the main student center where students get around 250 free prints. There is also a computer lab in the Architecture building that is open 24/7 with computers that serve multiple purposes such as touch screens. The network has definitely improved since a couple years ago. For instance, before whenever you wanted to access the computer you had to always log into the server, including on a smart phone which tended to be a hassle. Now, however, after following a couple of simple steps at the beginning of the semester you no longer have to log in every time you wish to access the internet.

Gainesville in general is extremely student friendly. Food places are open extremely late for those late night cravings and places such as Mid-town and Down-town are popular off campus hang out spots. As far as on-campus goes, there are always fun activities to participate in. The main library, Library West, is open until late and there is even a Starbucks in there open 24/5. We have a big, and newly constructed, athletic center that has a ton of machines and an indoor track, basketball court, volleyball court, and activity rooms.
College Junior 2012-12-26T20:43:25Z
The weather is overall very nice in Gainesville. Some days will be very sunny and bright, and because students tend to walk to from class during these hot days it may be uncomfortable because of the heat. But we do get out chilly days and the days that it rains. When it rains, which isn't really all that often, it can also be annoying. All in all, the weather is usually very beautiful here.
College Junior 2012-12-26T20:05:48Z
Off-campus dining is pretty nice. There are so many places to choose from, and they have pretty good hours over the weekend.
College Junior 2012-12-26T20:03:27Z
The buses are very convenient, and run every 5-10 minutes.
College Junior 2012-12-26T19:41:13Z
I received a decent amount of financial aid, but it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. A couple of my forms got lost in the shuffle, so I had to stay on top of things. I suggest making regular in-person appointments with your financial aid officer to make sure things are going smoothly.

Public transportation at UF is great. I live off campus and do not own a car, so I therefore have to rely on the buses. At first I was a little hesitant to use them, but I have no complaints. There are two bus routes pass by my apartment every 6 minutes and I personally have not had any issues with any of the buses. They are all very punctual. Also, there are so many different bus routes that navigating through Gainesville is not an issue at all. The buses are free for UF students. Also, there is a special bus called the Later Gator that trasports students back and forth from midtown to downtown, where the clubs are at.
Other than the buses, UF offers a service called S.N.A.P which drives students around campus night. This is done to aid the small amount of buses that run late at night and to increase student safety when traversing from extreme of campus to the other, not that safety is an issue.

Health & Safety:
Overall, it is pretty good with the safety measures on campus, and for health with the student health center

There are so many options of majors that you can choose from...you'll be able to find the right one for you

The facilities at UF are really pretty good, such as the research labs, medical equip, rec centers, athletic facilities, etc.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
