University of North Florida Reviews
My experience at UNF has been amazing overall. The courses are very informative and actually teach you valid information. My professors have been amazing and have really helped me reach where I am. The classes are usually filled with very friendly people. The campus is beautiful and there are amazing resources one can enjoy. The fast food restaurants and coffee shops are great and very tasty. The University of North Florida is filled with so much love and enthusiasm. I absolutely love going to UNF, I always feel so happy there because the atmosphere is so peaceful and lovely. I would recommend for anyone to attend UNF, they would not regret it!
The University of North Florida has an incredible wildlife conservation effort so the campus is encapsulated by nature itself. One could walk its entirety in about 20-25 minutes, so it's convenient for those who live on campus. If I could change anything, I would definitely add more places to park! With the increasing student population, finding place to park has become a challenge. Also, UNF is known for its undefeated football team! Oh, you haven't heard? Go ahead, look it up!
The University of North Florida is a wannabe Ivy League school that lacks the funding and extremely intelligent students to be so. It is a school. Nothing more, nothing less. They banned tailgating in 2018 and have very little interesting on-campus activities. They are ranked as one of the most inclusive LGBTQ schools in the nation and it seems like that is the only audience they cater to. If you are either gay or extremely content doing schoolwork with no partying, go here. Also, be warned their English classes DO NOT function as normal English classes (with all work turned in on time the highest grade you can attain is a B, and then you must gain a certain amount of "badges" to progress to an A). This is the policy across all English classes. That`s a hard pass from me fam!
