University of West Florida Reviews
In my humble opinion based upon my experience, the University of West Florida may not be the best school to attend, but it is one of the best schools to attend within the state of Florida that provides enough of a return on your investment to count. Class sizes are normally small enough that professors can talk to and interact with students on a one-on-one basis to answer questions, to provide assistance, to facilitate conversation, and to even assist with opportunities. With more than seventy individual majors and the opportunities to earn multiple majors, students definitely have not only variety but choice to maximize the opportunities afforded to them to achieve their dreams. The Office of Undergraduate Research has been instrumental in allowing students to travel, to present research, and network, and students are often more than prepared to attend graduate schools and to fill the vacant job and/or leadership positions available after college. Go Argos!
Not only is the naturesque campus stunning, but the campus life is full of enthusiam for learning. Student envolvment is a must on campus and all the student leaders are very proud of their positions--constantly encouraging others to follow suit! The intimate clss sizes make learning and testing anxieties dissiapate. I love this school and its Argo spirit!
UWF is a wonderful school! The staff is helpful, class sizes are small and managable, there's a ton of useful student resources, and the spacious campus is always clean. One bone to pick; most of our learning is filtered through the website, which at times is confusing and not user friendly. Aside from that I couldn't be happier with my decision to attend UWF!
