What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of West Florida is up and coming. We will be the next big University in Florida and that will put Pensacola on the map. Pensacola is very underrated, so the expansion of the university will help. I encourage any and everyone to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am very fond of the University of West Florida. I came here for the renowned Marine Biology department which is one of the best in the state of Florida. I find UWF as a perfect match for me as it is a comforting campus with smaller class sizes and easy accessibility to professors. The diversity on campus is very noticeable as students come from all over to receive a quality education. I appreciate the city of Pensacola too as it is not a huge city so it I do not get lost or get into trouble which I might have anticipated if I would have gone to a university in a bigger city.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have never a apart of a more close-knit community than that of UWF. Not only are the students here very friendly and eager to help, UWF offers programs such as Argo Camp, a three-day summer camp for incoming freshmen, to help make first time in college students feel welcome and at home here at UWF. We all support each other and want each other to succeed. It's great to be an Argo.

UWF is a school that really cares about you, there are plenty of things available for you to create the best experience for yourself. Class sizes aren't too big which makes things less overwhelming and you feel connected to what's happening. Lots of opportunities here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have only been on the campus for the summer semester, so I have not experienced the busy fall and spring semesters. I transferred in from a small state college. UWF is a good school. On campus housing is extremely expensive but there are tons of apartments near by the school that is much cheaper rent wise. The food that I have had from their all you can eat buffet (not on food plan) is meh, besides the salad bar because that is awesome. The bookstore is pricey and we got uniforms late and everything is very last minute (I recommend getting things elsewhere for prices). There is an undergraduate building that can help with advising and financial things, all in one place, which is nice. You can always email or call different people for anything you need. You have to speak to an adviser (either over phone or in person) before each semester to get a registration pin which can be a pain but at the same time it is good to make sure you are taking the right classes, if you arent sure. There are tons of buildings throughout the campus and the map is horrible, if you are actually trying to use it. There is a ton of walking to each building and the parking permits are pricey. You can use the map thing on the school site to get directions to places through your phone. So far the teachers I have had have been great but I am in the nursing program and only did one class before the program (but online) at this school. The campus is very nice though. They have trails, you can rent kayaks and canoes to go on the river or lake (have not been so not sure). The library is like six floors which is awesome and you can rent smartboards, laptops, ipads, and go pros. If you have the funding to go here, I think its a great school but pros and cons. The cost of classes here compared to the state college I went to before is at least 3x the cost.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far it has been an adequate college. What is lacks in facilities it makes up for in small class size and caring professors. In addition, its low tuition rates coupled with the universal need to do better really makes for an interesting student body. It's an alright place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far my experience at the university has been amazing. There is always something to do on campus wether its a movie night or a game night. There is always someone there to help you if you need it. The gym is one of my favorite places to go there are new equipment and a pool for you to cool off after a hard work out. The hot tub is nice to sit in to relax after a long day in class. This school has everything I was looking for and more!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university is a great choice. It's more affordable than practically any other major university in Florida. I love my department and find it to be the perfect niche for me. I would never take back my decision to go there. The musical theatre department is my home and family. The school has provided me with opportunities I wouldn't have gotten anywhere else. That being said, the general education classes I've taken haven't been very helpful or interesting. The professors that teach them - some of them, anyway - don't seem to be very knowledgeable and I didn't enjoy those classes as much. On campus housing is just OK, and the food is underestimated. It's overall a pretty great school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I thoroughly enjoyed the school when I attending. I didn't live on campus, but the campus itself was beautiful. However, the buildings were not easy to find and the signs didn't match up with the parking allotted to that building. The class size was small unless it was a general course, but the classes weren't too large that I felt disconnected. I enjoyed the classes I took, and I felt that UWF's Social Work program was pretty extensive and prepared me for a career in social work.
