Wasn't sure what to expect here. Had a lot of warnings on alcohol in public, but it was pretty good - just don't be stupid about it. Campus is very well laid out - lots of bike lanes and mopeds. Pretty love oaks and Spanish moss. Lots of places to tailgate around campus with a lot of shaded areas. Fans... More

UF is Florida's flagship university, accepting on the best and brightest, and turning away 85% of its applicants. If you are serious about learning, this is the place. UF has a rich history of academic and athletic achievements, providing opportunities for all of it's students and enriching the Gainesville community. Great museums, culture, and education are all at the University... More

Beautiful, spacious and safe campus with intelligent and helpful students and staff. The map of campus was easy to read and the street signs and building names are clear and accurate.

Studied here in the 80s. Went back to visit the place in 2011. Lots of things changed but overall the campus maintained its charm. University if Florida has a long history of achievements in many fields. The campus is huge with lots of trees and parks. I absolutely love this campus, which had been my home for at least 4... More

I surprised my son with tickets to a UF baseball game. Very nice field with great seats anywhere you sit. Very inexpensive, easy access, and a great way to spend a Spring evening. I think their season is coming to a close, but very enjoyable. Quite a few alums in the stands.

If you enjoy the "college scene" (no matter your age), the campus and its activities will excite and interest you. It truly is a sprawling area, and reminded us of OSU in Columbus, Ohio. If, however, you don't like crowded streets, pedestrians going any which way, and bars/kitch shops, etc, you may not be impressed.

We have heard of a tour given on Saturday's that we might come back up and take. On our self-guided tour, we hit the heart of the campus including... More
