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 decided to take a stroll of the UF campus on Sunday morning. We spent a couple hours walking the campus and taking photos. What a great history the campus has. 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

Took my niece for the college tour in August 2013. Guides were pleasant and informative. Was a large group and the day was hot, but that did not take away from the relevance of the tour. Various stops at central locations intended to woo the prospective students. Take your water. Useful info presented at start by college admissions person. Had... More

My daughter had a blast at this camp. She learned new skills and loved meeting the Florida Gators gymnasts.

Alvin Ailey performance at the college was fantastic. Phillips Center is a beautiful building and no matter where you sit, you can see.

Definitely walk the campus and enjoy the shady oaks in parks while viewing the buildings of many architectural styles. Most dorms and common buildings have been recently remodeled - a definite improvement from the past. The academic bar has been raised at UF and the student body reflects the change from past years. Diverse students seem focused while still having... More

What kind of review would you expect from an alumni? I guess it'll be a biased one. Well, obviously I am proud of my school. If you're coming to Gainesville, chances are it's probably something related with the university so it comes without saying that you definitely need to visit. I recommend visiting on a weekend when it is quieter... More
