Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

I think the college experience was worth it just for the personal growth and being around other students. I'm not sure that the actual degree has helped with my career though

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2007

Good school, but culturally more about de-formation than formation. As a young man, I had to really swim against the tide of immaturity and immorality.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2008

UF has a lot to offer! Everyone thinks of football and frat parties, but there are plenty of academic groups, intramural sports, and other activities going on all the time. Intro classes can be large, but as you get into the more specialized classes for your major, class size drops and you get a lot of individualized information and support.

Degree: Ancient/Classical Greek Language and Literature
Graduation Year: 0

The University of Florida is holding my transcripts hostage. They claim I owe them money (which I don't) and they say that the debt was written off in 2009, but since I am desperately seeking employment they will "write it back on" and will not send my transcripts. I just lost out on a great job because of this - and I DO NOT OWE THEM ANY MONEY. Of course, without a job I have no money for legal fees and cannot fight them and expect to have my mortgage foreclosed upon and wind up on the streets. Knowing all this, do you REALLY want to attend UF?

This was a very good program. All the teachers had something valuable to teach. Many things I learned I could use in my everyday life at work.

Degree: Physician Assistant

The UofF College of Medicine has been one of the great experiences of my life. The atmosphere is relaxed, casual and yet dedicated. Each professor was extremely approachable and committed to helping students. I've felt welcomed and supported throughout my education.

Degree: Interior Design
Graduation Year: 2013

Recently, in 2013 I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor in Interior Design. In school you learn the foundation by creating make believe projects and learn how to work within the space. However, it is so important to also have on site and real world experience ( other than an internship for 3 months during the summer). As a young professional in my career, I would of liked to have two years of a foundation and the last two years shadowing companies and gaining real life experience. In the design world, you not only learn time management, but you learn real life scenarios, to work with clients, making mistake and learning from them is how you become a great designer. As a senior in college I thought I knew everything about design because I developed great projects and was proud of my work, but in the end, I wished that I was taught more than just taking direction from my professor. I have been with my firm for a year now since I graduated and I have come so far..... My job is very challenging and I have definitely been fed to the wolfs. The challenge became reality on my first day at work. Sitting at my desk, I was asked to design a hotel lobby in NYC. I was hesitant that I didn't know how to lead this project all by myself. However I realized that there will be a few bumps in the road and that you have to make mistakes to learn and more forward. Shortly after, I was asked to fly to Phoenix and do field measurements at Buttes Marriott Hotel. In school, we weren't taught to do field measurements, so I just told myself that I will figure it out. At first I had no clue what I was doing...... I had three floors to measure and all numbers documented had to be accurate so we can draft the plans from our data. In the long run, being out for the challenge and put on the spot is the best way to learn. Furthermore, this article is written to state that all undergraduate students should try to explore as many interior design or architecture firms in their spare time. Wish I would have done more internships or worked at a design firm part time in college so it could have better prepared me for my future.
