The University of Florida still continues to amaze me even after my three years of attendance. There are so many clubs, organizations, and other opportunities that continue to arise for their students. This school is also part of organizations that the Gainesville community benefits on, such as the Big Event. This organization is held by the University of Florida students and upholding leaders, who participate in cleaning up various areas in Gainesville. There is a large variety of good that this school does for not only their students but also the surrounding area. Not to mention the professors do their best to teach students the required material in order for their future successes to be met. Overall, the University of Florida has gone above and beyond to meet the needs of their students, staff, the surrounding community, and much more!

The University of Florida is one of the top universities in the country. The academics are amazing here and it is also very easy to get involved on campus. There are plenty of different clubs and organizations to choose from, you are bound to find one that you like. In addition, the atmosphere of campus is incredible. Everyone is proud to be a Florida Gator, and it shows. One thing I would love to see improve is the parking around campus because that is a struggle (everyone who has been there understands!). In addition, I feel as though many of my professors have been graduate students or doctoral students who are also invested in their studies which hinders their ability to teach the course. Therefore, my educational experience is at a disadvantage because my professors do not invest all of their time into the course content. Overall, UF is an amazing school and I would not want to attend anywhere else!
"I loved the University of Florida, it is a very proud, uplifting, and large community. My courses were large in size but some of the professors were really passionate about their studies. I appreciated the internship requirement and felt I learned the most from this. I would encourage new student to explore the elective options, their are a lot to choose from! The University of Florida also puts on a lot of student led career fairs and informational lectures. I would highly recommend attending these, great opportunity to network and learn about on campus clubs."
