"Through the outstanding faculty and tutoring available at the campus, I was able to achieve my undergraduate degree in 5 years, only because I took off one semester, and did coursework at local colleges. The University of Florida provided the framework needed for me to accomplish and succeed in my selected field. Through the support and high ambition of faculty, and peers, I was able to thrive educationally, in the community as well as extracurricular activities."

"I was a transfer student at the University of Florida and I felt like I had the whole college experience, despite only being in Gainesville for two years. Student life was a huge part of my experience at UF, and they have hundreds of clubs and organizations to choose from. Great academic programs, study abroad opportunities, and alumni connections."

"I loved the University of Florida, it is a very proud, uplifting, and large community. My courses were large in size but some of the professors were really passionate about their studies. I appreciated the internship requirement and felt I learned the most from this. I would encourage new student to explore the elective options, their are a lot to choose from! The University of Florida also puts on a lot of student led career fairs and informational lectures. I would highly recommend attending these, great opportunity to network and learn about on campus clubs."

"The BSN program at the University of Florida is top notch. The school is associated with Shands Hospital which is a large tertiary health center for the state of Florida. Every area of health is represented in your academics and hands-on training. You will experience a variety of normal and abnormal case studies and learn from the best instructors!"

"Gator Nation gave me so much! It was amazing to enter as a scared freshman and feel connected to the campus almost instantly. I was able to find my home at UF, but that was not without trying. UF is a large campus and I was surprised when several hundred students would be in one lecture--I never thought I would belong or make friends. Although I love my alma mater, not everything was great. It was difficult to connect with professors, and you can easily get lost in the crowd. I would never change my experiences, but have found greater happiness after graduating from what people call the "best four years of your life.""

"The University of Florida is as close to a perfect college as it gets. There is everything you wish a college offers and more. I was extremely satisfied with the education, faculty, staff, and advisors. My program was Health Science and I loved the classes that were arranged for it. They were extremely interesting and related to what profession I want to go into to."

"The University of Florida is a wonderful university. While I attend the University I majored in International Studies with a focus on Asia. However, that's to the flexible courses provided by the University and their wonderful advising staff I was also able to graduate with a minor in Japanese and Religion. The University provides a wide range of classes and majors from the hard sciences to the soft sciences and even a variety of arts."

"Attending the University of Florida was easily the best decision I have made throughout my 21 years of life. This school has provided me with a firm background in general education and fully excelled in my actual major of teaching me about Health. Not only is it a great school, but it has a great name to help with future employment. UF has lots of resources for students from tutors, to resume readers, to job finders, etc. This school provided with the full college experience with its D1 sports teams, abundance of clubs and activities, and most importantly it's rigorous course work to prepare for my future."

"UF was everything I could have hoped for and more in an undergraduate program. From the school spirit to the excellent faculty in the classroom, I really felt like my education was worth it. I connected with people who I never would have before, as the school is really trying to stress the importance of diversity. It truly is great to be a Florida Gator!!"

"I absolutely loved my time at the University of Florida. I met some of the most incredible instructors, classmates, and community members during my 4 years there. I was a member of the Innovation Academy, which is a smaller cohort of students who are working together to create prototypes and better the community. For my last year of my undergrad, I had to move back home due to familial issues, so I was able to re-enroll as a UFO (University of Florida Online) student to complete my last few credits. I can say that the quality of education was just as rigorous and rewarding as on-campus classes were, and I couldn't be prouder to be an alumni of The University of Florida. Go Gators!"

"My undergraduate college has given me more than I could have ever imagined. To begin, the community is so welcoming. Any interests you have, you can probably find an organziation doing it, and if not, you can make one yourself. The professors are always willing to help, and are always available to talk even outside of class. I also love the diversity that this campus has. You really get to see all kinds of people, and experience different cultures. In terms of my program, I couldn't have picked a better major. I feel prepared for graduate school, and think that I have the tools to do well. This school is also great with first-generation college students. Being one myself, I got a full ride to the university and didn't have the burden of loans weighing me down. I must say though, it gets REALLY hot. Great university, great people. Go Gators"

"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."

"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."

  • 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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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."
