Students Say

Located in the heart of the "Gator Nation," Gainesville, Florida, the University of Florida offers "a hell of a deal" on "one of the best educations in the nation." Students are proud that UF is "the best state school in Florida" and "one of the top public universities in the nation"; they also love that it's "a great school with a large alumni network," that there's plenty of "intellectual stimulation" to be found there, and that UF's "research opportunities are abundant." Though the school has "strong academic standards" across the board, programs in Business and Journalism are particularly "highly ranked." "Access to alumni" pays off when students seek "opportunities for networking and research," and they find that "as a large school, [UF] has a lot of funding and a large number of opportunities for student involvement." Students say that the university's size doesn't sacrifice individuals' ability to focus on their course of study: "Classes for your major are hard, but they prepare you for more than easier classes would. They better prepare you for your career." Moreover, "as a research university with nearly every graduate program imaginable, the opportunities are endless." Students praise the "truly incredible faculty and staff" and appreciate that "one of the greatest strengths of UF is the fact there is always someone to turn to for help." Class structure is still impacted by the school's size in that "lectures are 80–90 percent of class activities," but conversely, students love "having experts in my field teaching all of my classes for my major." If "breadth of opportunities" for a value price is a priority for you, "The Gator Nation is one where anyone can build a future for themselves."

Students Say

Students widely feel that UF does a great job at preparing them for life after school, from the first-rate academics to the "excellent" career services. The Career Resource Center offers an abundance of services, including academic advising and career planning, job fairs and recruiting events, resume critique and mock interviews, and resources for job and internship searches. Gator Shadow Day allows student to learn about careers by shadowing a professional at work. The Center also offers a program called Gator Launch to provide "underrepresented" students in the science and technology fields with special mentoring opportunities. All in all, students seem to leave happy. Of University of Florida alumni visiting, 53 percent report that they derive a high level of meaning from their jobs.

Colleges that Create Futures

Service Learning

Students in almost any field can benefit from an experience with the Center for Public Service. The university told us that the Center “is a community of students, scholars and citizens who share a commitment to training the next generation of public and private sector leaders for Florida, the United States and the international community.” The center provides UF students with research opportunities, internships, and a lecture series.
The Graham Civic Scholars program help students develop an understanding of public policy issues and develop “practical skills needed to be aware and active participants in our communities,” according to the university. Each year the program selects a topic that its fifty scholars will pursue. Scholars help to develop and organize the programs activities, complete service learning activities and research projects, and conduct “in-depth interviews as part of their investigation,” of the year’s topic, according to the university. Past topics have included food insecurity and the aging infrastructure in Florida. Scholars are assigned different tasks within the organization; for example, in the spring of 2015 ten students were “selected to plan and implement a service learning project,” and three were given “financial support to write a senior thesis or public policy proposal on the issue” of food insecurity. This is a great opportunity for students to take charge in the implementation and design of projects, developing great leadership and problem solving skills.
The Center for Public Service also offers a number of different internship opportunities that engage students with local government and civic service, while providing them with important contacts and future job prospects. The Local Government Internship Program places students in city or county manager’s offices across the state. Students gain valuable on-the-job training in “ business/finance, engineering, landscape design, and public administration. Interns will receive on-the-job training to help them move forward on their career path and attain valuable work experience in the competitive economy.” In the Florida Cooperative Extension Service and Graham Center Public Service Internship Program, students create educational programing in collaboration with county extension faculty. Programing areas include agriculture, water resource, environmental quality, and economic development. This is a perfect experience for any student interested in community development, sustainability, or environmental studies as these fields often interact with government personnel.

Other programs on campus shepherd student research and entrepreneurialism from the moment they walk in the door to the moment they find they need new office space. The Innovation Academy is, according to the university, “the nation’s first live/learn entrepreneurial based academic community.” This dedicated UF undergraduate program allows students to collaborate with other entrepreneurial-minded students, develop their own products and ideas, meet business leaders and venture capitalists, and participate in co-op learning during the fall. During spring and summer semesters, students take classes and get to interact with the Innovation Square startup community. In the fall, instead of taking classes students can find co-op employment, complete internships, study abroad, or use their time in any other way that customizes their education.
Students in the Innovation Academy can choose from a wide array of UF programs and majors that have been carefully curated to align with the academy’s mission. Students are provided with a sample program plan that suggests what classes they should take and when, and it also provides them with details about the kinds of careers that program could prepare them for. This allows students to focus and specialize their educational pathways toward a specific career from the start. For example, one program plan for the College of Agricultural Life Sciences provides students with career paths in entomology and nematology that include biosecurity, ecotourism, and plant protection. In each program students are provided with a step-by-step guide that takes them from freshman to senior year. There are equally detailed plans and career options for students in the diverse fields in six different colleges, such as information systems, accounting, journalism, political science, and mathematics.
Students also pursue a minor in innovation that helps them develop practical skills in their field. The minor focuses on ways that students can enhance their careers through interdisciplinary and creative approaches to problem-solving. In a pair of interlinked classes, “Creativity and Context” and “Creativity Practicum,” students learn “theoretical groundwork and evolution of psychologically-based research on dimensions of the creative person, process, product and press,” according to the university. They then get practical experience and develop “problem-solving strategies through completion of an innovative project.” By the end, students have developed, refined and tested a prototype creation in their chosen field. Students then present their work to the academy and guests from the business community, including patent attorneys and venture capitalists.
Special Facilities

University of Florida tells us that Gators have “an altruistic drive to change the world for the better.” To support these proactive students the University itself has made “a comprehensive commitment to innovation and entrepreneurialism that is championed throughout our sixteen colleges and more than 150 research centers and institutes.” And students agree: “The University of Florida is all about innovation and working to better the lives of all Americans.” “We’ve created and developed the novel Innovation Square,” the university says, “an adjacent campus with facilities for startup companies whose technologies emanated from laboratories at the university.” The university is building Infinity Hall, an undergraduate living/learning community and residence hall near the Square, themed around entrepreneurism, in addition to a learning center for both undergraduate and graduate students. Innovation Square is part of the UF culture of “preparing students to be innovative leaders in and outside of their profession,” while “challenging students to innovate and solve the world’s greatest problems all while having an immense amount of fun,” students say.
The Hub is a 48,000-square-foot facility on the Innovation Square campus with whose “main objective is to enable companies accepted into the program to devote their limited resources to technology and market development, rather than [the] operational infrastructure,” that takes a long tenured business savvy to get right, and often stymies new technologies and business ventures that are otherwise sound. These budding business leaders don’t have to worry about securing office technology and facilities—the Hub provides office space for UF entrepreneurs and their startups to share. They also have access to the kinds of fully equipped, modern labs that they are used to finding on campus. Student researchers in the Hub also gain “access to venture capital firms” ready to give them advice about the market prospects, feasibility, and funding structures and—most importantly—to provide them with the capital they need to get their ideas off the ground. Residents also find pro-bono service providers are provided in the form of legal advice, accounting, and help with product design. While the best of schools offer these kinds of services through different entrepreneurial initiatives and programs on campus and through alumni networks, the University of Florida has them all in one place, which has the unexpected advantage of getting many of UF’s entrepreneurial students together. To maximize the exposure these groups have to one another, the Hub arranges “programs and events to enhance collision and collaboration between tenants.”

Bottom Line

With relatively low tuition and a strong scholarship program for instate students, UF is an especially good value for Florida residents. The Machen Florida Opportunity Scholars (MFOS) is a scholarship program for first-generation college freshmen from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The scholarship provides a full grant scholarship aid package for up to four years of undergraduate education.

Bang For Your Buck

The cost of attending University of Florida is well below the national average for four-year public universities. Annual tuition and fees hover around $6,381 (based on a typical schedule of thirty credit hours per year), while campus room and board will run you another $9,000-plus. Overall, Florida residents are the main benefactors of this great value. Out-of-state undergraduates pay a little over $28,000 more in tuition and fees and must also factor in higher transportation costs. The school prides itself on providing prospective students with financial aid packages that will help lower educational costs through a variety of "Gator Aid" options. Their website offers a net price calculator to help students and their families get a better idea of exactly how much it would cost to attend the school. In-state students should be sure to check out the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program, which offers scholarships based on high school academic achievement. The program has different award levels, each with its own eligibility criteria and award amounts.

Students Say

While "everyone is different," "fraternity and sorority participation….dominates the student culture." Students are "hard working and interested in getting ahead," and "even though UF is considered a party school, it is full of people who put their future careers first." "Students fit in by taking part in and participating in the various things our campus offers" and are often "busy and focused usually on one subject matter or area of interest to be involved in through extracurricular activities." Even though it's a large campus, one student remarks on the sense of community: "We're students? I thought we were all part of one big family!" They find each other "mostly accepting and friendly," but as a whole "hard to define. Gators are religious and non-religious, Greek and non-Greek, obsessed with athletics and some couldn't care less." Overall, the typical UF student "knows how to balance their school work and still have a good time."

Students Say

"The University of Florida is in Gainesville. The Gator Nation is everywhere." In terms of town-gown relations, "Gainesville revolves around UF, most everything is catered to the students and student life." "Bars are the big scene," and students "love going out with friends on the weekends to Midtown. It is a UF staple to party at Grog, Balls, and Salty Dog once you turn twenty-one." "Tons of school spirit" ranks high on the list of things students love about UF, as "A lot of UF culture is based around sports." "Greek life…is a big deal in both the social and extracurricular scene" and "When you are in the Greek community, there are many things to do." For other students, "I find myself working or studying in a computer lab most of the time" and "there is a really intense nightlife but when it comes to exams, papers and finals week it is pretty quiet everywhere." Extracurricular life can also be as forward-looking as you want it to be: "In addition to classes, I research in a lab with the College of Medicine and volunteer at the hospital located on campus." Students "play sports," and "For fun, there are several places to go such as Paynes Prairie, Devil's Millhopper, or other outdoor activities." If you want to get involved, join one of the "961 clubs": "There is literally a club for everyone at UF" and "you make it what you want. You can party every day or you can study every day. I keep it pretty balanced."

Dr. J. Bernard Machen, president of the University of Florida, is serious about sustainability, and, in 2006, was among the first to sign the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, which laid the groundwork for plans to educate the campus community about climate change and to measurable reduce the university’s carbon emissions, with a goal of carbon neutrality by 2025. UF has set an aggressive goal of becoming a zero-waste campus. In pursuit of this goal, comprehensive recycling programs have been established across campus and even at Gator games, where volunteers help keep 26,000 pounds of recyclable material from entering the landfill annually. In 2013, due to the collection of compostable materials during home football games, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium achieved a single-game diversion rate of 78 percent during the 2013 football season. The athletics program was the first carbon-neutral program of its kind in the country, and was recognized as one of ten case studies on how campus sports are going green in the 2013 Collegiate Game Changers report, published by the Natural Resources Defense Council. More recently, UF established pre- and post-consumer compost collection in its two dining halls and pre-consumer compost collection in the J. Wayne Reitz Union. UF has seventy-four LEED-certified buildings on campus and the first LEED Platinum building in Florida. All new buildings must seek LEED Gold or better. UF offers more than 1,000 sustainability-related courses and academic programs, including both a major and minor in Sustainability Studies, and a major in Sustainability and the Built Environment. UF is in the process of expanding its efforts to include a Green Office Certification Program, as well as a revised Climate Action Plan and Green house Gas Inventory to help shape the future of sustainability initiatives on campus.
