Overall, the teachers were great and the students were super friendly, however there are a lot of problems with security at night as many assaults are common around campus.

Degree: Classical, Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies and Archaeology
Graduation Year: 2008

Overall, I had a positive experience at UF: I met my husband there and made friends with whom I am still close. It is a large research university, so it offers a wide selection of degrees and classes to choose from. However, such a wide range of choices can be paralyzing to those who aren't certain of their career path, and the college does act like you should have this figured out already at 18 years of age. It is very easy to feel like a number and get lost in the crowd, but sometimes it's nice to have that crowd to blend in to and go to sporting events together. The campus is pretty and draws many interesting cultural events to enjoy, though Gainesville proper is quite small. I found that the science programs often had a chip on their shoulders about the humanities, which was disappointing for someone interested in a truly interdisciplinary, liberal arts education. An often over-looked value of the undergraduate experience is to explore who you are and how you can be a better person in a tight-knit community of peers; if this is a primary interest for you, be aware you will have to fight to have this sort of experience at UF. If you are looking to get a degree for career purposes only, it is much easier to fit in to the big university structure. Ask yourself why you are going to college and what you think the purpose of college should be.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2015

It was fun and exciting, yet it was slightly frightening. It feels as if there is a lot of pressure depending on your success, but you just have to focus.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2010

The University of Florida was the best experience. I do not work in the field of my major but just having UF on my resume helped me land an awesome job. As they say, the Gator Nation is everywhere!

Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2011

I has a truly wonderful experience at UF. It is a beautiful campus and the city is very bike and bus-friendly. The environmental engineering school is relatively small (about 30 students in each year), so I had the opportunity to get to know all my professors.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

UF is an excellent place to pursue graduate study. There are excellent facilities and diverse enough faculty that anyone interested in pursuing a career in research should be able to find a good fit. For undergraduates interested in research, this is also an advantage because there are many opportunities available to volunteer and get real lab experience.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Florida is a great school to prepare you in a variety of fields. In the business program you get a broad spectrum of topics to study to help prepare you for the business world. Please be prepared with grading they always round down for GPA purposes which can make maintaining a 3.5+ VERY difficult. It was a great experience and I am thankful to UF for helping me achieve some great career opportunities. Also do not hesitate to take advantage of their career center. They put a lot of hard work into it and it is great for job placement after and sometimes before graduation!
