If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I was extremely satisfied by the estates in Gainesville. There are many complexes and almost all of them offer very good amenities at fair prices.
Personal comments:
On-campus housing at University of Florida is difficult to get for exchange students. However off-campus housing is very good and cheap.

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
Some courses are broadcasted on TV when too many students want to attend the class, which can be disturbing for French students, used to go to class and to interact with teachers. Therefore, it is important to know that teacher assistants are available to help at anytime.
