"UNF gave me a lot of career opportunities and the courses prepared me for my career. I l loved the culture of the university and class sizes are small. I did have an issue with one professor and parking is expensive. Overall, I would recommend this school."

"I never had a bad teacher. Every time I made an appointment with, and met with my advisers, I wasn't met with problems. The advisers are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The campus is great, everything you need is there. I was able to meet with counselors, not even for problems with school, but just regular real-life stuff. There is a variety of class times, for those that need morning or nights. There are also online options. I've done both. I prefer being in class, but the way the online classes work, are laid out easily for student access. They have a career service center as well. This offers students help with resumes, interviews, and even offers clothing to those that can not afford it."

"Although UNF wasn't my first choice, I was very happy to have attended this university. I had a great time, my advisors helped me a lot and with my scholarship i was able to study abroad, which may not have been possible had i attended another university. The teachers were very knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. WiFi on campus sucks."

"During my time at the University of North Florida (UNF), I did my best to get involved with as many opportunities as I thought would enhance my skills and understanding in the best possible way. The University provided many avenues and opportunities to my relevant degree of study. Something I was impressed was how there were always marketing events every Wednesday from relevant companies and businesses encouraging students in the pursuit of their education and the reassurance of job security upon graduation. Within my degree program I was part of the biology club were we served as an academically-based and service-oriented club, our goal was to give back to the local community and provide our members with volunteer, social, and educational activities throughout the fall and spring semesters. UNF is home to many clubs and organizations which involves their students and I am extremely grateful to have been part of such an institution."

"Please, don't let this school fool you. I came here with a near perfect college GPA as a transfer with high ambitions and I am leaving depressed, and now, thanks to their policy, under academic probation. I feel cheated and dirty. This school promises a small community and great resources; again, don't let them fool you. All that translates to is a school understaffed (the faculty they do possess is overworked and unbearable), disorganized (good luck applying for financial assistance), and drained because of the lack of clarity/cohesion. Everything from their parking to their professors is, again, mismanaged and disorderly. Sadly, you pay the price for this. Unless you have your parents money to blow, unemployed and vapid, save yourself. This school was designed for the type of student who has nowhere else to actually be beside on campus (believe me, it will take day and night to pull through this experience) this school is not for you."

"Though it is taking strides toward becoming a more campus friendly school, the University of North Florida functions predominantly as a commuter school for students in North East Florida. Think USF in Tampa or FAU in Boca Raton. This is due to a few easily identifiable reasons: First, the school is young. Founded in 1972, the school is still attempting to determine its own identity as a medium-large sized public university. Where USF and FAU are attempting to build identity and tradition from athletics, UNF doesn't have a football team, which surprisingly does have an effect on the student body's school pride. UNF does boast a mid-tier basketball team, but its success has been up and down over the past few years. Second, UNF isn't located in a "college town." Rather, UNF is kind of like an island of academic buildings and (beautiful) nature preservation in the middle of suburban Jacksonville. It's location is kind of cool in that you're fifteen minutes from Jax beach and fifteen minutes from downtown Jacksonville. If you're going to get a valuable education at UNF, it's incumbent upon you to make your experience valuable. This means developing relationships with your professors - all of whom I found to be brilliant and kind in the English and Philosophy departments. This also means getting involved on campus. There are a million clubs on campus. Getting involved with one that you care about can ultimately make or break your collegiate experience. This isn't necessarily unique to UNF - I think all colleges require a degree of enthusiasm and drive in order to make them meaningful and worthwhile. The flipside of UNF's relative youth and obscurity is that it isn't hard to get involved and make a mark. It's very easy to make connections on campus and in the community precisely because UNF's community is young and impressionable."

"The University of North Florida is an amazing school. The teachers provide one on one help and are cornerstones in the community. It is large enough to have the college feel but smaller than major universities like UF. My upper level courses tapped out at 50 people. All the professors were willing to help and build a one on one relationship."

"University of North Florida offers an intimate classroom experience that provides is hands on allowing for students to excel in their courses. Professors are available for 1-on-1 sessions leaving no student left behind in their coursework. The campus size is perfect making it easily accessible for students to enjoy the multiple activities on campus without the hassle of having to travel far for it."

"My experience at UNF was a positive one; I love the vibrancy of the campus - an ambience for learning, growing and pursuing one lifes purpose. The faculty is exceptional, and the courses curriculum challenging, but well worth it in the end. On graduation day the sense of accomplishment experienced is overwhelming!"

"Great school, with a lot to offer its students. The campus is beautiful and they take a real interest in health and nature. We have nature trails and a great gym complex. I personal had a lot of class in the newly built scenic building, it's a great place to study and enjoy your time outside"
