University of Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (68)
It was an absolutely wonderful experience. The professors were wonderful all around, and the school had an abundance of clubs and organizations to choose from. There is so much to say, but it was overall just a wonderful experience
The degree was absolutely essential for the life I live now. I have a good job that pays very well, and I wouldn't have this without my degree. It was also useful for meeting successful, ambitious people like myself. People in high school were immature and not like me. I fit in better with college demographics.
It's a wonderful school. Nice campus, great student life, school spirit, reasonably priced, good town for college kids, respected academically. Geographically it's a nice location, surrounded by natural springs, 2 hours from the beach in either direction, 2 hours from Orlando and theme parks. Nice weather. I recommend everyone to get credits at community college first to save money. And it doesn't matter so much which school you go to as much as it matters to pick the right degree.
UF is a good school with strong academics. As an alumna though I feel the school does not prioritize students.
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
UF was a great school! Love the camaraderie and academics are top notch.
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.
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.
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?
Being a gator is amazing if you feel like you can thrive at a large school!
