    There are many activities available but you have to be the type to join in, and have fun doing some things that may even seem ridiculous. You just have to be the right type of person for this life. If you are a cautious, or more reserved student, this can be difficult, or even unappealing, so factor this in.

    If you're looking for something to do, you don't have to go far. There are tons of amenities like foosball and billiards all over campus, tons of interesting clubs, a board game room in the Reitz, and many other opportunities. Also, don't forget to go to Saturday night football games. Even if you're not a fan of football, it's still a great opportunity to hang out with friends and get involved.

    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!

    there's a lake nearby, lots of group classes at the campus gyms as well as access to the regular gym machines, the reitz union has a ton of activities like bowling and free movie nights on fridays with food, the best options are usually clubs.

    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.
