With an annual enrollment of nearly 50,000 students, the Sunshine State’s top university — and one of the largest in the nation — is home to 16 colleges and more than 150 research centers and institutes, and is consistently ranked among the nation’s top public universities. The individual is still prized in this institution of epic proportions, as illustrated by UF’s integration with the retirement community Oak Hammock, where students can work, complete health science internships in and find personal mentors. University of Florida summer programs for high schools students offer something for all types of interests.
In UF’s 108-year history, its varsity sports teams, known as the Florida Gators, have won some thirty-three national team championships, its athletes having claimed 267 individual national championships. Students and faculty alike show a contagious sense of community and spirit, which culminates during Homecoming Week in the student-run pep rally called the Gator Growl.

The best experience of my daughter’s life. Her words. Thank you!
By the second day we had each other laughing hysterically on our way back from the dining hall! I couldn’t believe how quickly we all became friends.
I would HIGHLY recommend Blueprint to any family looking for a personal, high-value summer college experience.
