It's almost completely impossible to characterize the entire student body's social attitudes, but in general, people at UF are very outgoing. There aren't that many kids who will just walk up to unknown classmates and introduce themselves, but then again, anyone who does will probably be pretty well received. And of course, within their own cliques and social groups, Gators are usually quite gregarious.
Hookups or Relationships?
At a campus this big, there's plenty of both. You'll hear a lot of people talk about significant others, but in most circles, there isn't exactly a prejudice against more random hookups.
In a state where December temperatures can reach 80 degrees, students like to keep their wardrobes pretty casual. For both guys and girls, owning at least one pair of khaki shorts is a must. Flip-flops are a staple, as is a Gator T-shirt-just don't overdo the Gator gear. During the summer, it can rain nearly every day, so galoshes and a trendy umbrella should be on any future Gator's shopping list. Gainesville temperatures do plunge unexpectedly and frequently, so plan accordingly. If you decide to roll out of bed 15 minutes before class in your pajamas, you won't be the only one. Tank tops, basketball shorts, and track pants are all common class attire.
