I am truly blessed to be a party of the Oiler family. Everyone is awesome and I really feel like I belong there. The faculty is always accessible and I feel very safe when on campus. I can’t wait to continue my career at UF! I did not have a top choice when applying to colleges, but when Findlay sent me my acceptance letter and a week later visited, I knew right away I had to go here.
