I've recently transferred from UF to another state school. HS counselors pump this school up like it's MIT or Harvard, when in realty, they're not even in the same league as Ivy league schools. This school is soo freaking big and you're just another number. Most of the dorms are like 60 yrs old with no AC and most of the faculty doesn't speak English and you feel like they have no time for you because they're doing research. Sure..UF has good athletics, but I didn't come to college to party 24/7 or live for college football. Interestingly enough, everybody underage drinks here, the cops don't care on game-day. Don't believe the hype about UF, go visit other schools in the state before you pull the trigger. I'm now a senior at the University of Miami and loving it. More expensive but worth every penny.
responseI pity you. College ANYWHERE is what YOU make it. Sorry to break it to you, but you are "just a number" at any school in the country. Colleges are a business just as much as they are learning institutions unfortunately. Your largest gripes were underage drinking and professors not speaking english? Seems kind of shallow. For the record, I am from south florida and ecstasy along with underage drinking are huge at UM. Seems like you had your mind set on not liking the place from the start. Once again college is what YOU make it.
