The University of West Florida Reviews
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.
UWF is a great small college. The science department focuses on local environmental issues. The cost is relatively low. Most of the science staff and friendly and excellent teachers.
I throughly enjoyed my time at the University of West Florida. The classroom settings are small and initimate and you get to know your peers as well as your instructors very well throughout your time there. There has been some change in administrations since I attended and I did end up having my final field eval be purged before it was suppose to, and they did not have a digital copy saved. But I believe they have gone to electronic copies for paperwork now, but be aware of that for any college you plan to attend.
UWF is a decent school. It's near Pensacola Beach, so it's fun to attend. They've really started focusing on business/science/medicine degree programs as well as on their sports program in the past few years, so it's not the best school for humanities majors.
It was exciting, eye-opening, mind-expanding, highly pressurized, frustrating, exhausting. The courses offered in the history department were quite limited - if you wanted to take a course that covered an area outside Europe or the United States, you had to go to the Anthropology department. Rising tuition and book prices, desperately insufficient parking, aging buildings/equipment and, again, that limited course catalog, all while the university was pouring huge amounts of money into starting a football program and developing land to rent to outside vendors like Starbucks (both of which plans were delayed for years), made me feel like they saw the school more as a money-making scheme than a place of education. Still, I had some great professors that made me look forward to going to class, and that's extremely valuable.
This was a school on a beautiful campus. I highly enjoyed my time there.
UWF was the perfect school environment for me! The classes were small and the instructors were always there to help. I worked full-time and having excellent instructors helped so much! I am planning to earn my master's degree very soon from this college.
