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.

The cafeteria food here is much better than I thought it would be! Plenty of options that are tasty and help students try diets (there's a salad bar, ethnic bar, dessert bar). Our dorms don't feel like prison cells because they are freshly painted, have ample space and spacious bathrooms. Our culture is academic (many of us outgrew parting stage), diverse, and friendly. UNF is LGBT/vegan/conservative/religion/female friendly. A great place to invest in your future!
I am now a graduate of UNF with a B.S. in Biology. I had a great time at the school and quickly found employment as a full time biologist with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Jacksonville; though, I would consider myself the exception in the biology department. Most of my peers who are more than qualified for positions are still struggling to find jobs.

My experiences in the biology department were overall very good, though I would like to see more variety of classes offered, and more internship options. The teachers were great and some of the courses were challenging (genetics, physiology). Do not wait until your last 2 semesters to find a senior seminar project and take genetics/physiology! Make sure to work in someones lab as an undergraduate to gain research experience and increase chances of job placement after school!
