    The school's diversity has expanded tremendously and has great efforts to continue to do so. The school is very open to accommodate every type of person whether you are outgoing or shy, adventurous or studious, the school has something to provide for you. From orientation to become a student, your excitement and spirit for the school will expand as you continue to become a student as UF. I was very nervous at the idea at being at college. The idea was overwhelming and I was more concerned about being homesick more than ever. But because of the warm atmosphere the school provides for its students, it felt more like a home away from home.

    Get involved. This goes for all universities/colleges. Admissions councilors like to see well rounded students. Make sure that when you're getting involved, it's something you love and do for several years. Do not get involved in so many clubs that you cannot keep up with them. Rather, get involved in a few that you have a passion for and can get very involved with. Volunteer/find a job. This will show that you are contributing to your community. It also helps you figure out what you like and what you don't like. Building a future for yourself consists of way more than sitting in a classroom. Do well in school. Grades still matter. Getting involved and finding a part-time job isn't an excuse to not try in school. Overall, grades are a VERY important factor when admissions is making a decision. The essay matters. This is true for all universities, but especially UF. On my campus tour, my cicerone (the UF ambassadors), told me that the essay is how the admissions office gets a feel for the student. The admissions councilors cannot interview 50,000 students. Instead, they assign an essay as part of the application process to see if the student fits the image they want for the school. From personal observations from friends who had similar grades/extra curriculars/scores, and did not get accepted, the only difference was the essay. Anyone that goes on a campus tour will tell you that the essay is the most important part of the application. Don't get discouraged. Many people believe that they do not have what it takes to get into a school because they do not have the grades/scores to get in. Do NOT let this get you down! If a school is your dream school, apply. You never know what might happen.

    Get involved, get to know your teachers, sit in the front of the class, go to office hours, go to office hours, GO TO OFFICE HOURS and most importantly enjoy your time as a Gator.

    Get involved as soon as you begin your time at UF! It can be intimidating to be in a sea of 50,000 students, but once you find your niche you're going to have the most wonderful college experience. Try as many new activities and clubs as possible (we have over 1,000)!

    Don't be afraid to try new things--sign up for clubs and student groups that sound fun, or even a sport that you haven't tried before! And when exams roll around, don't be too nervous to go to the libraries and study--as long as you aren't that guy who talks while others are working.
