    UF offers something for everyone, whether it be on-campus or off-campus. Several student organizations host social events throughout the semester. Mid-town and downtown are both home to fun bars, clubs, and restaurants to hang out at. My personal favorites are the outdoor spots, like Lake Wauburg, Payne's Prairie, and Ginnie Springs for exploring!

    go to ginnie springs or devils den nearby, or even lake wauberg for the natural springs, lake activities like kayaking or canoeing, and snorkeling. see all the nightlife at the bars in midtown and downtown, especially piano bar. eat at all the cool local restaurants like southern charm kitchen or bagels and noodles.

    There are some many ways to be active outside. Lake Wauberg is a great day trip to go to with friends. You can have fun in kayaks or paddle boards, or you can hang out on the beach. The South West gym is HUGE. There are 5 basketball courts and tons of gym equipment, and has tons of stuff you can rent out to go have some fun with friends. There are a few pools on campus people like to go and tan at or swim a little bit. Whatever floats your boat. If you're not the outdoorsy type then there are tons of clubs on campus that have people get involved. Normally those clubs organize fun events for members. Aside from campus involvement, within the city of Gainesville, there's not much to do. The nightlife is probably something I should mention too. In the fall Mid-town gets very crowded and, lets just say interesting, so be warned.

    Athletics are HUGE at this school. We pay for our football tickets, but I don't know a single person that regrets buying season tickets. Basketball is free if your RSVP! Everything else is completely free. I love the gyms and fitness classes offered on campus. We have a lake nearby that offers rental supplies for recreational activities, St Augustine is a small trip away if you want to make a day of going to the beach, and there are lots of off campus dining options. The Reitz Union is neely renovated and has new fun activities. The bowling alley is great! I've only been to one frat party and it was a little too big for my taste, but there are many other party options I plan to try out during my time here.
