Why did YOU decide to go to U.F.?: I've been wanting to go to UF since I was a Sophomore in High School. I always thought I was going to go out of state, and go to school in the north east, but then I decided to stay in state. Also, I fell in love with UF and have a weird obsession of it.
Name your favorite aspect of U.F.: Its way different from anything that is in Miami. Many people ask me why I don't just stay and go to UM. UM is a good school, but I don't see myself there. UF is huge, and even though it's in a small town, all of it revolves around UF. It's a college town, and I want that. Also, the spirit of the university is incredible and the fact that everyone is a die hard Gator fan, like me. 

Hobbies: Sleeping, driving in my car, listening to music, going out, partying, hanging out with my friends. 
Musical Likes: I love any type of music, even country [gasps!]. The Killers, The Postal Service, Weezer, The Fray, Journey, Blondie, Foreigner, Death Cab For Cutie, The Bravery, The Darkness, When In Rome, Fleetwood Mac,Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, My Chemical Romance, Coldplay, Beck, etc.
Cinema Favorites: Batman Begins, Closer, Finding Neverland, Anchor Man, Van Helsing, Narnia, Tears Of The Sun, Forrest Gump, Requiem Of A Dream, etc.
Literary Loves: Waiting For Snow In Havana, The Alchemist, Night, Red Zone, Crime And Punishment, etc.
Tube Obsessions: Project Runway, American Idol.

Personal Life

There are times at Preview during which you will be doing absolutely nothing and there are other times during which you will be stressed out as all hell.

Do as much as humanly possible to work your schedule out ahead of time and you will be ahead of the curve. If you know anyone who has already gone, borrow their schedule of courses and attempt to come up with something.

You will do a lot of walking and standing around in the heat and listening to the Preview staff perform cheers and chants. The Preview staffers were, for the most part, smart and pleasant but Preview itself was kind of a pain in the ass.

Most people ended up rooming with the people they stood behind in line during check-in at the dorm, so keep that in mind.
