The University of Florida has provided me with the experience to not only growth in an academic perspective but also in my personal development. Through its rigorous academic elements and the high level of competition, this institution has allowed me to develop critical thinking skills that have made a difference in my everyday life. The diversity found in campus including clubs, greek life, and ethnicity have change the way that I perceived my community and has let me to become more involved with my surroundings. Although there's always room for improvement, I believe the University of Florida provides every student in campus with a great opportunity to achieve their goals and continue their path in striving for excellence. I will forever be grateful to be a part of the GATORS!

I personally had a slight difference with the University of Florida... I was a member of the PACE program which is a strictly online program that allows you to progress to classes on campus. The program has great potential but personally I did not find myself liking it. In order to transfer from strictly online classes to interactive live courses, all prerequisites were required to be completed. If you're interested in online schooling then I highly recommend this program! I believe you should know that it is fairly new and there are still many kinks that need be worked out. The advising was one of the experience that I will not miss. Being an online student, there are no face-to-face office hours so emailing was a necessity. I found many times that it could take several days or even weeks to get a response on the simplest of question.
