Of course every university is going to try to squeeze as much money out of you for as long as they can! University of Florida is just the same! They will want to take as much as they reasonably and legally can. But, the rewards for these high prices are evident. There are so many Student Government run events that are free for students to go to! of course they are not free, but you are paying for it with your tuition and fees! They have Gator Nights, where different activities such as Carnival Nights, Pep Rally NIghts, Salsa Nights and every week they show a new movie! Recently, we have shown Frozen, Saving Mr.Banks, The Wolf of Wall Street and countless more! Also, by just being a Florida Gator you have free admission to every home game except for Florida Football games. And generally, at Swim Meets, Gymnastics Meets, Lacrosse Games, they give away authentic drinking glasses, t-shirts, tank tops, sunglasses and more! A lot of the money that we pay for can be given back to you if you go and look for it!
