University of North Florida Reviews
That being said, to make the most of your time at UNF you have to go out of your way to look for opportunities. Make sure to look into research and internship opportunities yourself, as the school does not provide them everywhere. I majored in psychology and got most of my research experience through a different institution because lab space is limited.
I feel as though I was not explicitly told how to best prepare for graduate school and had to do the leg work myself in figuring out what steps to take to get to my end career goal. UNF will support you to graduate with your bachelors degree, but does not offer excellent guidance in preparing students for a longer trajectory.
Overall, I enjoyed my time here and feel it has helped me to grow as an academic. Although, there were frustrations at times.
