The University of Florida is a prestigious university ranked in the top 10 public schools in the U.S. UF has a beautiful campus with magestic trees and red brick buildings. My experience with UF has more than exceeded my expectations. They care about each student and faculty member even though there are thousands. They cater to the needs of young leaders inspired to succeed at the university. There are various amenities across campus that are included in tuition, and at least one thing bound to interest every person there. Classes are quality instruction, and professors with charismatic personalities. Student clubs are vast and abundant, so inclusion of all types of people is guaranteed. Lastly, UF is constantly working to better the community and atmosphere of campus to better benefit its inhabitants.

One thing UF could work on is accommodating the large number of students on campus. Lines are always long, and resources limited sometimes. Other than that, great university!

I'm entering my third year at the University of Florida and have had an amazing experience thus far. All my classes have been highly engaging and truly make me feel as though I'm learning rather than just going through the motions. The professors have always been helpful and open to questions and concerns. Many have definitely taken a personal interest in seeing their students succeed. UF provides an amazing environment for students to socialize and to find their place with a wide array of student organizations to join. As well as plenty of events for students to attend including sporting events, concerts, guest speakers, and more!
I am now completing my first year at the University of Florida, and I've loved it so far!
All of my professors have been wonderful. They've been so nice and accommodating of their students. They make themselves available for office hours multiple times a week, and even on exam days sometimes. They're easy to communicate with, and are willing to help whenever we have questions or concerns regarding the class.
Campus is beautiful, and there are a ton of study and hangout spots to discover! The surrounding town has a lot of places to explore like Butler Plaza and downtown. Take the RTS bus!
The nightlife is great, football season is a blast, and the students are awesome.
And I must add that during COVID-19, UF administration has worked hard to make a smooth transition to online classes and has been very supportive of students. I can't speak for everyone, but I personally have had a better experience than expected.
Overall, UF really does feel like a home to me. Go Gators!
