Please, save yourself the time, money, and frustration that that this school will cause you. I didn?t start off as an engineering student, but I knew that I might end up trying it and wanted to go somewhere with a good engineering school. This school was the wrong choice? all the professors care about is research. I?d say less than 10% of the professors I?ve had here actually care about the students and teaching. Most of the professors I?ve had so far in engineering courses can barely speak English, let alone teach us literal rocket science. Honestly, all this school cares about is its mediocre football team and research. The quality of instruction here is very low compared to other universities in the state where I have friends that are also doing engineering (UCF, UM, FIU). The MAE (Mechanical and Aerospace) advising department is even worse. The only advisors that actually do their jobs are the Freshman advisors, but once you?re past your freshman year you get a different set of advisors. Nobody is assigned a certain advisor beyond freshman year, so there are 4 advisors to deal with the entire college. I?ve sent emails to advisors and gotten no response on more than one occasion. Keep in mind, I can only speak for the MAE department, but I?d imagine the rest of the Engineering college isn?t much different. So if you?re thinking about coming here for engineering, explore your other options first. If you're thinking about coming here to party and watch football, look nowhere else…

The education isn?t the only thing that sucks about UF? The campus is laid out horribly, tons of wasted space everywhere and all of the buildings where you actually have class are in the Northeastern quadrant. But of course UF doesn?t tell you this until you?re already enrolled. If you don?t live on campus as a freshman, good luck making friends, because the University sure doesn?t encourage you to get involved in extracurriculars. Oh, and there?s not nearly enough on campus housing for all the freshman, so good luck getting a spot to live on campus if that?s what you?re planning to do. The student body here, in general, is a bunch of arrogant, immature, self-absorbed, narcissistic buttheads. I don?t know how else to explain it. Everyone here thinks that they?re the best thing since sliced bread and that this school is so much better than all of the other schools in Florida, when it?s not. Mostly everyone is a frat bro or a sorostitute, all they care about is the greek alphabet, getting trashed on gameday, and being the same as all of their stupid ?brothers? and ?sisters?. I?ve never met a more annoying group of people than the greeks at this school. I?ve been to other schools and it?s not like this at all. Don?t get me wrong, not all greeks are bad and I?m friends with plenty of them, but here, most of them are. This place is basically highschool round 2, cliques everywhere because most of the student body is from either Tampa or Miami and part of greek life.

On top of all of that, as if it could get any worse, Gainesville is a horrible place. The dining options are uninspiring, the traffic is awful, there is absolutely nothing to do around here that isn?t related to the horrendous university, there?s crime all around campus and on campus regularly, the on campus housing is way overpriced for the quality, and the nightlife sucks. Seriously, Midtown is the shittiest collection of bars I have ever seen. They charge cover everywhere pretty much every night, there?s never any good drink specials, and when it?s not so packed that you have to wait in line for an hour, there?s practically nobody there, there?s no in between.

Just go to FSU, you?ll get a better education and have way more fun. Plus, they actually have a football team that?s worth going to see every Saturday unlike our pathetic junk.

commentMaybe you ar having guilt feelings about your emtions. Mid town Bars are okay. Designated drivers and key grabbas. Constructive in conversation and criticism.
