If your in the area a have a little time, walk across campus. It is large with many trees and places to seat and relax. You have Lake Alice and a couple of small man made ponds. There is old style architecture, along with older buildings with history. You have the Stadium, and may statues to see. This is just... More

Big campus, but with an Ivy League feel. Most restaurants and shops are withing walking distance. Some of the best sports teams in the country. Acceptance makes UF a bit hard to get into. You're surrounded by the best here.

The museum, is a wonderful place to visit when in town. This University has it all. It is also very close to the VA Hospital,. One of the better medical facilities, in the area.
