  • The University of Florida is very large southern research University. I attended the college of engineering 40 years ago. The campus has changed significantly! The feel of the campus is the same. Large brick edifices, ivy covered, and large windows. Lake Alice still has gators. A number of green spaces dot the campus. m i think it is one of the most beautiful in the US!

  • A school filled with opportunities if you are persistent in looking for them. There is an incredible amount of organizations and student programs available, and you could go out and make your own if you would like to. Many professors are involved in research and are sometimes willing to give undergraduate volunteers/work-study students a valuable experience. In my experience as a computer science major, professors or TAs are willing to help during their various office hours. Some professors should be less vague with the expectations they have of their students, but overall this a quality school with a great future ahead of it. The school can also be pretty aesthetically pleasing in some spots, which is a nice added bonus.
  • I went here a while ago and it is wonderful! The swamp makes this place really different from other universities. The spirit is amazing and i want to go next year :D
  • I like some of my professors a lot, but the administration will find any excuse they can to charge you. The in-state tuition looks great on paper but then they'll fine your pants off, and you end up getting a much worse deal than you were expecting. Go to a different school, you won't regret it.
  • Used to love this school with all my heart. Gave countless hours of my life to campus programs. I guess they don't care about keeping families together because they denied acceptance of my brilliant, involved, passionate younger sister. Meanwhile kids are getting accepted who haven't taken a trigonometry or calculus class in their entire life. UF is 100000% getting shittier every day, but really, could you expect much from a left wing campus more concerned with filling quotas rather than carrying on family legacy? Angry but not surprised. Also, parking blows.
  • One Name Aaron Hernandez tells the story of the University of Fla. The University chose to cover up serious crimes he was involved in as opposed to allowing the judicial system to address the situation and expel him from the school permanently. Additionally, the Coach and Adminstration as well as any other parties involved should have been fired and not allowed to work on a collegiate level nor with minors in any situation . Yet again a college focuses on male althletics as opposed to education and helping students who dream of going to college but face one challenge or another which is something that can be overcome with the right support. Aaron is at fault and those around him for not getting help when he had a life changing moment when his father passed but in the end U of F could have at least eliminated the option to attend the university which may have resulted in him not going on to the pros and possibly getting the help he needed.
