Highly recommend the UF Bookstore for Gator Gear. They have everything clothing wise you could want and especially items that are sport specific. We were even given a 30% off coupon. Workers were extremely helpful in finding specific items.

As a student I found UF to be over-rated, poor teaching and impersonal. As for the athletics, these days their crowds are all just a bunch of retired people that have moved to the area--few hot babes. If you find that interesting, this is the place for you.

I absolutely loved my four years at UF. A great place to take your studies seriously, but also to unwind. It's great to be a Florida Gator!

Lots of good looking buildings, its definitely a place for a nice stroll on a weekend - the weekdays are very busy here. Not sure I liked how some of the students drove though.

It is an university town, and the experience on tailgating during a soccer match was just quite interesting given its many frat and sorority houses. But that aside, the Gators are everywhere, from sport gear to souvenirs. The campus is large, and it is worth walking instead of taking the public transit. The food court is ok, and the attractions... More

Had the occasion to visit University of Florida to see how my daughter studies and works. I was very happy to see the sprawling campus is very green, pretty clean. On one hand, it has a relaxed look to it and on the other, it has work places so well organised as to enable studies efficiently. There are classrooms, libraries... More

Nice campus and the security is top notch as well. Parking was way better than I expected for the ceremony.

The Univerity of Florida is a must visit when in the Gainsville area. Be sure to go by the swamp as the Gator football field is one of the best known in the country. Also the statues of the heismen trophy winners spurrier, and the rest are a must see. This is an 0ld campus and still carries the looks... More
