The most important thing to remember is that dorms are dorms; they all involve nasty linoleum or industrial-strength carpeting, cinderblock walls, possibly irritating neighbors, a lack of automatic dishwashers, and a bathroom to be shared with at least one (but as many as 50) other kids. On the other hand, you are offered all kinds of practice with choosing carpet remnants, applying posters in an artistic and wall-obscuring fashion, getting along with your fellow (wo)man, and achieving parent-surprising levels of immodesty. The surprising part is that it doesn’t take seven semesters or a ridiculously optimistic mind to realize how much fun dorm living can truly be.
UF’s “residence facilities” (unofficially known as “dormitories”) are about as good as those in most other large universities. Your floormates truly are like your family because everyone is in the same position, and people are just looking for friends. Yes, your dorm room is not that big, but if you are in your room all day, then you are not truly experiencing college!
