    very, very beautiful buildings and general atmosphere/aesthetic, though it does get very hot. the students are nice and not snobby. the staff is really hard to get a hold of as far as financial aid and housing goes, it's tedious if you have a problem you need taken care of.

    uf is a very challenging insitution, so you will definitely be forced to work very rigorously for a degree here. aside from academics, the school offers numerous clubs (over 1,000) to be involved in, and the athletics are always a great experience. gainesville is a beautiful city with many conservation areas that allow you to unwind from the hectic college life.

    an amazing school, there is great social life, diverse cultures, and organizations. gainesville is very much college town, but it has such a wide variety of local restaurants from ramen places, to indian, to southern style. there is also a lot to do in and around gainesville if you like adventures or bars, or music.

    At the University of Florida it always seems like something fun is going on, which I enjoy. There are so many resources on campus for students to network and get involved with clubs or rec sports, so many opportunities that emerge in that regard. The one issue I will say is dorm life, it's not bad, especially if you're an incoming Freshman, but be warned it can get messy and loud in the halls at a moments notice.

    The University of Florida is the ideal school for a Florida resident searching for a large campus with a highly respected name. The entire town of Gainesville is centered around the school and caters to the students. Class sizes are large and course material is challenging, but rewarding.

    It has an amazing bus system which accommodates off campus living students and they are constantly running from early hours in the morning to late hours at night. All of the buildings are relatively close to each other and it feels very much like a college campus. Of course, there are many places to meet and socialize with friends, like the new Reitz with the arcade room.

    My whole family has attended UF and I plan to attend as well. It is a very prestigious school and by far one of the best in Florida. It has a great music program and some great people go there. The campus is old but other than that it is a beautiful school.
