Start arranging the paperwork very early. Buy a car Don't have a small budget for this area, everything is expensive but the fun is worth it. Find a good place to live, for example an international student complex. Read Review

Overall
Describe host city: Student life dominates the city

Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Durant mon séjour à Gainesville, j'ai pu profiter de leurs cafés pour faire quelques lectures, sentiers pour marcher et nombreuse piscine pour se rafraîchir ! Ce qui est à ne pas manquer surtout à University of Florida ce sont surout les évènements sportifs. Il faut absolument assiter à une partie des Gators de football ou de basketball. L'ambiance en vaut la peine !
