The University of West Florida Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (16)
My time at UWF was amazing, I was able to pursue a degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice and graduate with both degrees in 4 years. The professors across all majors are extremely bright and are motivated to help their students achieve their goals. If you become involved on campus, networking becomes easy, and student life is great. I thoroughly recommend the University of West Florida.
UWF provides a great education at a great student to professor ratio; it's a real diamond in the rough. Not many of the other state schools in Florida can provide the learning atmosphere that UWF provides due to its small class sizes and really caring professors. Rather than feeling like a number, professors really went out of their way to provide any help if requested.
The college offers the courses you need. The schedule and classes at off campus sites are very limited.
The university of west Florida provides a great value to those who are looking to get a career. Most classes are small compared to a lot of schools and taught by actual teachers with doctorates who are willing to help. The campus is beautiful as well with new buildings and building improvements sprouting up all of the time. The sprawling campus offers outdoor trails, canoeing, and a 25 minute proximity to beaches for those who need nature in their lives. There is a large gym with an indoor track for those who need exercise. All of these items make me extremely satisfied with my collegiate experience at UWF.
I absolutely loved this program and would highly recommend University of West Florida for a Master's Degree! The course work was meaningful and prepared me for state certification exams. My academic advisor, professors, and all other staff were caring, timely, and helpful. I was able to accelerate the program to graduate early, but received thoughtful advisement and encouragement from my advisor. The materials and books that I purchased as a part of my studies were very relevant, good investments. I opted for the 100% online program, which very closely mirrors other public state University Ed Leadership programs, but at a fraction of the price! Even though my classes were exclusively online, the class platform, use of emails, discussion boards, and live collaborative sessions kept me engaged.
University of West Florida was an amazing part of my educational experience. The small class size and personal interaction of the faculty made me feel like I was a part of a family. The students that I met during my time at UWF are still a part of my life now. We are able to connect and talk about problems and get help from one another. I am even still in contact with many of my professors. What a concept! Additionally, the school was so very helpful in all areas and facilities. Be it financial aid or even the cafeteria staff, everyone has been so helpful and pleasant. I speak to other students who dread going to the registrar's office or financial aid because of the long lines or rude service, however, at UWF I have had nothing but positive experiences. It has been such a joy to be able to call this my alma mater. I would defiantly encourage anyone to consider University of West Florida the place to grow academically.
UWF is a nice, quiet, small school. Unfortunately, while I was going there it seemed to be going through an identity crisis and couldn't decide what kind of school it wanted to be. It used to emphasize the humanities, archeology and oceanography. It's focusing more on business degrees and its sports programs these days. I would only recommend UWF is you just really want to live in Pensacola or if you are majoring in marine biology or something else to do with the ocean.
It was a small school, but a great experience. I enjoyed my time there.
It is a great school to go to if you wish to attend a college with the price tag of a public school and the class size of a private school. There is a real sense of community between the students and faculty. While there I was able to develop great relationships with not only my classmates, but also many of my professors. The campus is a beautiful place to live and attend classes with a nature preserve and many trails to enjoy. There are several activities on campus to increase the quality of student life in a wide range of categories. Everything from movie nights to outdoor adventure trips. Overall I enjoyed my experience at UWF and would recommend it to everybody.
Outside of learning about the curriculum of Legal Administration, I discovered what type of learner I was at the University of West Florida. I came to the school as a sophmore from a local community college. What I learned from the community college, UWF added to, which empowered me to later attend graduate school twice. I am a life long learner; I love to learn and give credit to my early college experiences. I had an overall amazing experience at this wonderful university and graduating from UWF empowered me beyond what I can express verbally.
