Degree: Spanish
Graduation Year: 2015

UF was a great experience! I feel great pride whenever I see a fellow Gator both locally and internationally as the Gator Nation truly is everywhere. We are currently the number 8th top public university in the nation due to its high standards. The outcome of my education reflected these standards.

Degree: Marine Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

I really loved the program at UF for marine science. I learned different aspects of marine life and it made me a more well rounded student within my degree program. This program also allowed the ability to explore different types of classes in and out of the major. In addition, I'd like to thank all the teachers in the program because they are all very passionate about what they teach and it truly shows.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2019

At the time of my enrollment at UF, the economics major had just switched from the business school to the College of Liberal Arts and Science. Although I wasn't able to get as involved with the business school opportunities like every other economics student prior to 2015, I was able to dive in to the diversity brought forth by CLAS, which opened the door to a minor in religion. My experience at UF has been positive in the sense that there are many ways to get involved professionally, culturally, recreational and academically in and out of UF and Gainesville. This university is always evolving and making progress toward bettering their programs and the college experience, so if you do decide to attend UF, make sure you give feedback so that we continue to improve.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Florida was an amazing transformation experience for me. As a first-generation low-income student I was able to network and find people who supported me in thriving. I was involved with many organizations at the University of Florida. There are a multitude of groups and activities for all interests and types of people. I personally was interested in service and engineering. The groups that I got involved with helped me grow professionally and academically as well as personally. Additionally the University of Florida has a fantastic career and resource team. If you are struggling with building your resume or writing a cover letter they will assist you. The team will also help you prepare for an interview and find an internship or job that best fits you. I think the majority of their students work some internship or job over the summer. There is also a ton of other resources on campus such as fitness centers and mental health centers. I suggest to take advantage of these because they will help you grow personally. If you are struggling with an identity this can be a great resource. Lastly the University of Florida is a top 10 public institution in the United States. UF is the top public school for a reason. You will find a home here and if you enjoy sports or socializing there are plentiful opportunities for that too. Oh and living in Gainesville is cheap! Rent is not expensive and the cost of living is not very high.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

If you can choose another nursing program please do not choose UF. The professors do not want you to pass and they overload you with work. The exams are impossible to pass and the teaching methods are horrible. There are only a handful of professors that want you succeed, the others make it impossible.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2017

Going to UF was the best decision I made. Through on campus programs I made incredible connections with others as well as developed myself as a professional and a leader. The anthropology department was tightly knit and incredibly helpful through my academic career. I made great friends and learned many valuable lessons from my professors throughout. UF is a research school which was even applied through the liberal arts department in which we were provided many opportunities and tools to conduct our own research.

Degree: Telecommunications Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Florida is the best university in the state of Florida - there, I said it. Particularly, the College of Journalism and Communications maintains one of the most comprehensive degree programs for its students. My studies in Telecommunication Management gave me a wide variety of knowledge in all aspects of communications (journalism, advertising, marketing, production, etc.) while still allowing me to pick and choose what I want to focus on. The faculty and staff were more often than not knowledgeable and inspiring, open to discussion and helping students however they could. The opportunities that the school provided were one of the most incredible "perks" - the University of Florida moniker speaks for itself, and it is known that their students are professionals when it comes to career-minded pursuits. Internships both within and outside of the college are widely available and can be researched and recommended through the college itself and its excellent staff. The facilities and equipment for all technology-related classes are top notch and the building even houses its own studios for radio, television and other broadcasting needs. Weimer Hall and the School of Communications and Journalism was a home away from home during my schooling at UF and I would recommend it highly to anyone looking to pursue communications in any form. Go Gators!

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2014

The College of Journalism at the University of Florida was a fantastic place to successfully complete an undergraduate degree. Although the University itself is quite large, the college and faculty truly make you feel cared for. They are experts in their respective fields and have had hands on experiences that transfer to each course you take. I would definitely recommend it to any student interested in a career in media, communications and public relations.

Degree: Health and Physical Education/Fitness, General
Graduation Year: 2013

The University of Florida is an incredible learning opportunity. As a Health education and Behavior major, I found my coursework to be interesting and my professors to be of the highest quality. I was able to partner with a professor my final year to work on a research paper and it has been extremely beneficial after graduation to have that experience.
