  • My uncle (actually, 3rd cousin) was a professor at Florida a very long time ago. Finest man I ever knew. His student population adored him. I always intended to go; instead graduated UMaine & post-grad Ohio State. Always missed Florida. Am back here to retire - 15 years+ now, but still follow you on the field. Florida is a very great school, & you can be proud of your graduates, who never stop praising FLORIDA for the best 4 yrs of their lives. God Bless.🐊🌴
  • I attended the school at an early age, didn't complete and went back later in life and completed and graduated with honors. My children attend their softball camps. They have the nicest of the nicest staff. They are always willing to answer questions. Go Gators! No regrets!
  • They also have a gift shop and walking tours but the most intresting thing about it is that all the students were focused on school😄
  • * Very disorganized system overall. * Unprofessional advisors and other staff. * Poorly designed website and mobile app that only work about half the time. * Shady policies and sneaky charges. * Tuition is pretty steep compared to other state schools. * Lots of campus disturbances. * Lots of public disturbances. Aside from the incompetent staff and surprise fees, the campus is filled with obnoxious political campaigning and activism, and the weekends clog the streets with endless traffic jams during football games and leave the streets filled with trash and neighboring properties vandalized the next morning. It seems impossible to get even the simplest questions answered in fewer than 2 months, 7 phone calls, 5 transfers per call, 4 snippy attitudes, 2 unanswered emails, 3 unreturned voicemails, and 1 threat to charge you extra money for some random and obscure fee for everything you do. The educational quality is on par with any typical university, but overall it's not a pleasant experience. Actually, I can summarize life at UF with one experience: I wanted to register for a class, but I can't do that myself. I have to have an advisor do it for me. So I tried to call my advisor, and reached a receptionist who offered to schedule a 30-minute phone appointment with my advisor in 2 months. THAT is the level of bureaucratic garbage you have to look forward to at UF.
  • lol i had to do a book report on this. cringe. lol bad school
