As Gators, we approach our Honors program like everything else — a little differently. At UF, Honors is a challenge aimed at students who want to make the most of their time here. Recognizing the diversity of interests, we have a program that can be tailored by the student. Since honors students also live together and participate in a variety of service projects in addition to their studies, it’s no surprise that these Gators are changing the world before they even graduate.
UF is ranked No. 3 in the nation in the “best universities for technology transfer” by The Milken Institute.
More than 80 percent of Gators receive some form of financial aid each year. UF graduates more low-income students receiving Pell Grants than Stanford, Harvard, MIT, Yale, Princeton and Duke combined.
UF’s student-faculty ratio is currently 17:1, compared with 21:1 five years ago.
The Gator commitment extends beyond our more than 200 research, service and education centers, bureaus and institutes. We have boots on the ground in UF IFAS extension offices in all 67 counties in Florida, keeping our fingers on the pulse of the needs of the Sunshine State.
