megs9595 asked: Sorry this is kind of a broad question but what do you love about UF? It's on my list of colleges and I'm trying to narrow that long list down. Could you help give me more reasons to go to UF? I'd really appreciate it! And I love your picture by the way. They're beautiful.
Thank you! And no problem! One of the things I love about UF is that there’s something for everyone. It’s a big school with a lot of people so it can be a big change from high school but you’re guaranteed to find people with lots in common with you. There’s something like 950 clubs at UF so it’s really easy to get involved and meet people. I also love the campus, since I’m into photography I take a lot of pictures of UF and Gainesville and it’s one of my favorite places I’ve been to. There’s also a degree of prestige and pride in calling yourself a Gator since it’s the best university in the state and there’s an enormous alumni network. But you should never pick somewhere just for the name. There’s great athletics no matter what sport you’re into, world class speakers and performers who visit, rigorous academics, a beautiful campus, nice weather, and plenty of people to meet. I would definitely recommend visiting the campus if you haven’t already and touring, that was one of the things that helped make up my mind. Choosing UF was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I’ve never second guessed myself for making that choice. After visiting all the colleges I had on my list I definitely knew UF would be the best one for me. Almost everyone ends up picking the college that’s best for them so you will know for sure where you want to go by the time you have to make a decision. Hope this helped and good luck making your decision!
