The University of Florida is by far one of the best universities in the country. From being in one of the biggest football divisions in the country, SEC, and watching games in the Swamp nothing can compare to Saturday nights in Gainesville. The academics are wonderful but demanding being we are one of the top research universities, which allows students to further their study in any science career path of their choosing. The school offers a plethora of majors and minors to peek one's interest. Then, aside from academics there are tons to get involved in from Greek life, student government, student run clubs/organizations, intramurals, and plenty more!

There are so many wonderful things about being a Florida gator. Not only is the overwhelmingly accepting community amazing to be a part of, but everyone shows compassion and understanding towards one another-regardless of race, religion, sexuality, field of study, etc. Everyone helps one another out; together, we are one. Not to mention the exciting school spirit we all share and show in the stadiums! One of my favorite things about being a Florida gator is going to football games and participating in demonstrating our school spirit. The football stadium in particular is loud, animated, thrilling, and honestly such a great catharsis after a long week at school. My school is challenging, but rewarding.
If the thought of a tight-knit college town appeals to you, the University of Florida is the place for you! With an incredible amount of athletic events taking place year-round in addition to all the fun activities you can partake in as part of any UF organization, you will definitely find a way to keep yourself busy. There is also plenty of nightlife with a variety of bars and clubs in midtown and downtown respectively. You will also find lots of cute local spots throughout town so make sure to set aside some time to explore!
