Student Reviews

Very cheap for being average!
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

This university is very accommodating to students needs, and gives a good education for it's price (in-state). However it doesn't seem like there is much of a community at the university. In terms of academics, it is not rigorous but simply like high school continued.

My time at the University of North Florida
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

As an international business major, my experience at the University of North Florida has been incredible. With an excellent business school, and even better international and study abroad programs, the university has helped shape and promote my love of travel and being able to study abroad.

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My main accomplishments were achieved outside of the classroom during my undergrad. While my professors were incredibly accomplished, I learned the most by taking advantage of the on campus jobs available, joining clubs and taking internships. Through all of this, I determined I wanted to be in event planning.
