I think overall University of North Florida is an okay school. If you are there to party, get drunk and just have a good time...perhaps this isn't the college for you. Honestly, you could probably do a lot of that without spending thousands of dollars on tuition, room and board. Just know someone who knows someone going to the party. But, if you actually want to earn a degree, Make sure you get an amazing advisor, and don't hold off on meeting with them. The class scheduling process is a key factor for how long your college experience is. Housing is okay. Dorm life is what you make of it. So are EC activities and courseloads.
University of North Florida is a really good school. UNF is known for its strong academic programs and dedicated faculty who are experts in their fields. The university also offers wide range of majors and courses, allowing students to pursue and their passions and interests. School is all about the environment so the campus itself is very beautiful, with a serene lake, nature trails, and modern facilities.
I love it, I love how open of a school UNF is. The campus definitely serves a good balance of student life and outside of student life. It offers so many types of learning environments as well so that everybody can learn in an efficient way. They also offer smaller class sizes, individualized attention, and studying abroad.
It is in a great city and everyone I met was very friendly. It was the right choice for me because of their out of state waiver. I like the opportunity that this college has put in front of me and I am excited to attend. Some interesting facts is they have a great ASL program and they have a swamp on campus. Personally, before becoming a student, I have already gained access to their mywings which shows me all the different clubs I can join and also allows me to receive notifications about what is happening on campus.

Just take a deep breath, work hard and take all you classes seriously, don't slack off!
Parking, because the permits at too expensive.
Mostly white but there is some diversity in race and religion with some international students.
UNF is a growing university located on a nature preserve, so it is surrounded by beauty.
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.

I would mostly brag about the creativitly and soclusion of my school to my friends. I beleive that U.N.F. is one of a kind to have some many great opportunities for me. I brag to my friends mostly about the nature preserve that my school is located on and the special connection I am able to make with my professors.
This school is very laid back, but very into studying and doing well. Anyone who is just out of high school that is not willing to open up a book and do some serious studying, I wouldn't recommend applying for this University. A more affordable, community college would probably be your best bet if your not serious about school.
People with open minds and a willingness to work hard and learn should attend this school. Though not the most renowned school in the country, the University of North Florida challenges its studets in both the academic setting as well as in students' perceptions on real life. People often come away from this school getting much more from their experiences than they thought they would upon entering.
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.
Low tuition prices. Location
Changing of curriculum which makes class you already took worth nothing and adds more classes to your list. Poor academic advising.
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.
My overall opinion of this school is that it's not very well known but the reason being is because it's so new. It's very modernized and the campus is nice. The professors are also very friendly and helpful. If you like the more one on one time and smaller classes then this would be perfect for you.
The professors usually tend to learn names and create relationships with students, they are very kind, helpful, and interesting people. Most students study 3 hours for every hour they spend in a class. Class participation is very common and encouraged. A lot of the time the professor will make class participation part of your overall grade. The education at UNF is definitely geared toward getting a job once you finish.
The most popular student activities/ groups are of course the fraternities and sororities; due to the fact that our campus is pretty small it takes up more then half of the student population. Also, student government is very active. There are lots of events held on campus including free food, movie nights, comedy shows, music events and something called market days, where people set up tents and sell things.
As a student focused on academics, UNF was very appealing to me because I was able to begin school in the summer term following my graduation from high school.
When leaving campus, you see lots of trees and preserves. The area surrounding is well-kept and natural. Not even one minute out, and you have the town center, the most attractive outdoor mall in Jacksonville in my opinion. Then on the other side, there are apartments and nice living surrounding campus. Butler and 9A highway ramps are located all around campus.
