University of West Florida Reviews
Review University of West Florida
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!
The new dormitories are nice. However, the older dormitories are small. I have experienced some difficulty during Freshmen year because the rooms were overbooked. I ended up moving from Argo hall, Pace hall, then Martin hall. It was pretty frustrating. Sometimes the students are very loud but living in dormitories was not too bad. The cost was absolutely insane! It was almost $3,000 a semester for a small room with two bunk-beds. Ridiculous. This school is so money hungry.
I love the University of West Florida! It's not too small, and it's certainly not too big. The class size is ideal, and all the professors love helping and meeting outside of class times. The University is very close to Pensacola Beach, which is a huge plus factor.
