I am a high school student but I visited the campus and I overall loved it. It was a great experience and it also became the school that I am choosing to go to. I love the people, the campus and the academics. I would recommend anyone to enroll here.

Raven - 02/19/2021

I love UNF so far. It's very exciting to be here. There are many opportunities for students and there professors are always there to help you. You just have to make sure also, that you put in the work. The food is okay, it could be better (but that's just my opinion).

Aiah - 12/19/2020

good college, needs to put a lot of efforts to get good grades. professors are overall good and helpful most of the times, life inside the campus is fun and you can make a lot of friends out there. classes sizes are good comparing with students. other students are very helpful and usually make group study.

Donavan - 08/07/2020

The University of North Florida is a college with a campus that's bigger than you might expect, but still manageable as it won't take long for you to get between classes. The professors are nice and understanding, and you'll be able to make lots of friends here with the events on campus, as well as the game room that houses many consoles, all while getting a good education from amazing professors.

  6. What's unique about your campus?

    The absoulte best thing about UNF is the small class size. Its great to know that teachers ususally do learn your name and then will also recognize you outside of class. Even for the few classes that are lecture halls, they also include a once a week class meeting that is a "break-out" from the regular class size. In these sessions either the professor or a TA will further explain the weeks material in the smaller setting so questions can be answered better. Its a great feeling to know people are aware of your presence.

  11. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    The fact that University of North Florida is a small school is what makes it more unique than other schools I considered. Even though the University of North Florida has grown, in size and accomplishments, it has retained its most unique feature. UNF has small classrooms with twenty or so students per professor, and a one on one personal learning experience. This kind of learning environment is what distinguishes UNF from any other university, and explains why UNF attracts students from more than ninety foreign countries.

  14. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    The stereotype at UNF is that fraternity or sorority is the only way to get involved and have fun. I personally am not involved. I dont think I should have to pay in order to get "friends" and be a part of school. I get involved in clubs and activities on campus in order to get what i want/need out of college. I dont believe this to be accurate because I have plenty of friends and am able to enjoy college without any rules.

    There are a wide selection of types of dorms, and to be quite honest we have some of the newest and nicest that I have yet to see. Upper class man have a choice of living in on campus apartments which is where I live. Freshman can live in the hall (which is the stereotypical dorm meaning common area, communal kitchen, communal bathroom), the crossings which is where you and another roommate share a room and a bathroom and there is a communal kitchen, and the landing (which is similar to the crossings). Finally, there is the Fountains, which is basically an on campus resort.
