At the University, there are plenty of opportunities to learn and grow! We have different things for many different people. There is a lot to get involved in, and the faculty and students are always encouraging furthering education. The dorms are nice, as well as the eating places on campus. We have an awesome gym with rope climbing, and the university offers many water activities on our lake. We have obstacle courses, and free shuttle transportation. Here there will be always something to do. Meet new friends and higher your education all while enjoying the college life. I would recommend this college to everyone i come in contact with!

I am a part of the communications program currently and the internship rules that UNF has are ridiculous! I have checked other colleges, ones that are more prestigious and they don't have the persnickety rules UNF has. I have contacts in the Business side and that person basically said that the two professors who are in charge of internships for the communications department have full leave to accept or deny anyone they see fit. They contradict themselves on a regular basis, they told my almost supervisor one thing and the same person emailed me and said something different. This supervisor works in the PR side of a customer service business and they said the person in the communications department was the rudest they have ever talked to, which is saying a lot coming from a customer strive business. I can see why UNF is labeled U Never Finish, because of these two people my graduation date got moved from December to May.
All of my professors at UNF have been extremely knowledgeable and engaged. They make large classes feel personable and will stay after if you have questions(if their schedule permits) and all have on campus and online office hours to assist student. The dorms are the nicest I've seen between looking at about 10 campuses, and the cafeteria offer so many options, all of which are fantastic!
