The UF campus welcomes more than 50,000 students

Home of the Florida Gators, the UF has built its prestige on the fame of the football team. Every Saturday, the local stadium turns into a gigantic football game with thousands of people cheering up in Orange and Blue. Wherever you travel in the US, you will meet people loving Gators. Go Gators!

If you want to live the ‘American student life’, UF is made for you. Gainesville is a typical college town with lots of food courts, bars and clubs. The perfect place to meet friends and party all together

The sunshine state is a mixture of sea, sun, authentic and funny places. I would recommend to travel as much as possible in and out of Florida. Miami, Orlando, Panama City, The Keys, New Orleans, New York, Boston, San Francisco, Yosemite, LA, Las Vegas, Chicago. I have good memories from every place I have been to but my top 4 is: Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Key West !

Remember one thing: you will always be part of the Gator Nation. Once you get in, you will be thrilled to discover the UF experience. Once you leave it, you will be proud to belong to this united community for the rest of you life
