University of North Florida Reviews
For starters, even though UNF is a growing school with around 13,000 students, it still has a really lovely small-school feeling to it. Your professors will take time to get to know you, and if you're in honors, the dean of the Honors College will take time to read through your application and send personalized welcome emails.
Since it has a small-school feel to it, UNF has opportunities for Freshmen to get involved in research! I started working on a research project my first semester with many other students and a Professor from the Sociology department.
The other main reason I have loved UNF has been how accepting, and friendly everyone is. The first time I started being openly nonbinary was when I moved on campus, and everyone I met was totally accepting of me; even now, as I am working through changing my name, everyone is so supportive.
