  • UF is a good university with outstanding athletic programs and a few nationally recognized academic programs. The city and campus is too crowded and can be difficult to maneuver around.  more »
  • While we were in Gainesville, my mom and visited the UF campus a few times to see the landmarks...and even to try the Hare Krishna lunch. We found the campus to be so beautiful, the students very frie...  more »

  • We've been on 3 college tours now and this school by far was the best. I took a tour with my daughter a week ago and was very impressed. The 2 tour guides we had were very knowledgeable about everything. The campus gave us that small town feel. It was also clean and very well kept up. Very impressive especially since part of it was built back in the 1920's. We also got the impression that there was a lot of school spirit and pride. Looking forward to seeing my daughter become a Gator.
  • Having received my Bachelor's Degree from here, it was so good that I went back and got my Master's Degree. The University of Florida has great academic and athletic prowess, allowing for students to find community in whatever way best represents them. It's great to be a Florida Gator! Go Gators!
  • The customer service is awesome! Every time I had a concern or problem about my library card, status, holds, immunization records, etc. they went out of their way to help. The secret is in calling, they either help you right away or transfer you to someone who can. They are never a disappointment. Makes me proud of being in such a professional school and friendly school.
  • I was one of the applicants for one of their graduate programs. After submitting my application, I emailed them several times and they never replied. I tried to call their department several times, and they either didn't pick up the phone calls or didn't provide helpful information. I knew by the time that I shouldn't have applied to them. When they finally declined my application, they don't even try to address my name. They put "Dear Applicant," in the email as if I don't have a name. It's not the rejection that make me upset, it's how they handle applicants. I got rejected politely by some schools and I wasn't upset because they replied my emails quickly every single time and offer me helps through the application process. I have 3.95 GPA and a publication published in my undergrad study. I got into some top 50 private schools' graduation programs. I don't recommend anyone to apply to their graduate program because I don't think they really review your application carefully at all.
  • They have helped my Mother more than any other Doctor' out there and she has seen a number of them. They seem to care and seek answers. Thankful.
