I love visiting UF. It's a huge student town. I was impressed with the Gators stadium and other sport facilities. It's the # 1 university in FL

Drove to Gainesville FL on Saturday to visit Art Museum, worth the trip, very nice gallery. Interesting collection of art. In the evening attend performance by the visiting Prague Philharmonic . Of course the music was outstanding. The UF Performing Arts Center is a fabulous facility as good as or better than any NYC stage.

Amazing campus but USC is better... Go COCKS! All that aside, they have a variety of things to see and do.

I loved seeing all the different Frat houses and all the buildings. It is a peaceful place to go to. Their Downtown area is small but great. Many cafes and restaurants. I recommend it 100%.

They say if you gaze late at night you will see hundreds of pairs of glowing alligator eyes. Decided I'd visit during the day as night time is usually hunting time (smiles). It's hard to not see an alligator when walking there during the day. Not to be disappointed, when reading the Alligator safety sign there one was!!! If you... More

We took a tour of this large campus, starting from the original site with the bell tower. It was quite lovely with huge trees, teaming with students and cute little motorbikes in pastel colors.

As a student here many years ago I loved this campus. Not many State schools offer the quality of higher education and a beautiful campus with old architectural features on many of the buildings.

I went here for my undergrad, and I'm currently a grad student. The campus is beautiful; much prettier than I gave it credit for when I was a high schooler seeking admission. I definitely recommend touring the campus (formally or informally).

If you're anywhere near this area, take the time to take a stroll here; you won't regret. Very nice environs, and it still has a small town (and yet somehow cosmopolitan) feel/vibe despite the sprawl on the outskirts.
