Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

UF is a highly reputable school. Although it is well-known for its football team, it also has a reputation for excellence in engineering research an education. Classes are very challenging and some are certainly designed to weed out students struggling with self-discipline. I wish more students knew about their career counseling services. I would advise all incoming students to take full advantage of it.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

UF's Microbiology and Cell Science undergrad program was the perfect stepping stone for my continuing education and career goals. I will stay in the department to obtain my masters and then go on to medical school. I appreciated the devotion of the faculty and staff to the students in the program as well as the quality of education. Every course I took within the department was immensely better than the courses at UF outside the microbiology department.

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.

The University of Florida was the best choice I could have made when it comes to my future. The skills I acquired and the friends I made while in school are going to stay with me for a lifetime.

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.

The time I spent there was great from a social and academic standpoint. I met many great friends and learned valuable skills for my career. You will not regret attending UF.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

Although I was a transfer student, I was still extremely scared to start life at a huge university such as UF. This school is excellent because they provide multiple ways for students to feel comfortable and have smooth transitions to UF. Like most universities, the classes at UF can be pretty tough. With that being said, the faculty is there for you every step of the way and they ensure your success. University of Florida has something for everyone.

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!
