A school which believes that the students should cater to the needs of the university, as opposed to the univeristy catering to the needs of the students.
I payed the University of Florida 15,000 dollars this semester and they made me move my car so the fucking alumni could tailgate in my spot.

What do students from the University of Florida and Florida State University have in common? They both got accepted to FSU.

The only university in America where the Hare Krishnas, wearing their robes and playing their instruments, greet attendees of all the home football games with their joyous chanting and dancing. Their well-wishers claim "you guys play well every year." Inebriated Gators fans mock or imitate them, especially at the evening games, but they continue undaunted. Occasionally a pair of fans of opposing teams, inspired to dance, swing each other around, to the amusement of all.

A place where diversity is a foreign word, and the girls wouldnt dare wear anything execpt pink, pearls,and a camo hat with their sorority letters on it, and you will stick out like a sore thumb if it doesn't look like you took 9 and 1/2 hrs to get ready.
Wow is she a barbie in a pink parade.

An public university located in Gainesville, Florida touted as one of the best universities of the south. However, the arrogant students of this university exagerate this status as the ivy league school of the south. Unfortunately, these students are delusional because their school will never be of the same academic caliber as Duke,Vanderbilt,
Emory, Georgia Tech,Tulane,Wake Forest,College of William and Mary, Johns Hopkins,University of Virginia UNC-Chapel Hill, etc.
UF: I'm proud that I go to UF; it's the ivy league school of the south.
Random Kid: I think you need a breath of fresh air; so please take your head out your ass.

1) A decent school in Florida, a state which inflates its high school GPAs for the benefit of college ranking.

2) A place where students who have never left the state of Florida for some reason think their degrees are of the same merit as degrees from universities like UCLA, UC Berkeley, Stanford, Dartmouth, Yale, Harvard, Fordham, Virginia, etc., etc., etc...

3) The home of the Gator Nation.

"I've never left Florida, so as far as I'm concerned, UF is the best school in the U.S.A., or the world for that matter."

"Where did you attend school?"
"Really? I graduated from Columbia!. Where are you from?"
"University of Florida. Go gators; the south will rise again."

By the way, UF is ***NOT*** listed as "public ivy" either.

The original eight Public Ivies list by Moll (1985):2
College of William & Mary (Williamsburg, Virginia)
Miami University (Oxford, Ohio)
University of California6
University of Michigan (Ann Arbor)
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
University of Texas at Austin
University of Vermont (Burlington)
University of Virginia (Charlottesville)
