This school is great for students who are interested in learning from a diverse population of teachers. The advising center is highly helpful in getting you on the right path and picking the classes you really need. I love the campus being so spread out and enriched with nature in every direction. Class size is relatively small, providing a more one on one feeling with teachers and students. You know people in your class and can feel comfortable asking a teacher for help. The staff is very friendly and it is a casual setup. Great school for those looking into...

    If you are from around the Pensacola area you will enjoy it. It is like a glorified high school since everyone already knows everyone and comes from the local area high schools. The campus is beautiful but there are more negatives than pluses.

    uwf had a beautiful campus that is well kept and spread out. the facilities are accessible but hard to get appointments to use them. but not a good school for you if you want help anyone besides your professors; this includes housing, financial, and the police department.

    UWF is my number one choice in colleges. Not only do they have state of the art classes, and technology, but their campus is absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to start!

    University of West Florida is a heartless business of a learning institution that treats it's students as monetary investments rather than individuals in the pursuit of higher learning. The faculty was rude and disconnected from their students, swatting away questions and clarifications with annoyed tones in both their classrooms and private offices, likely due to their gross disregard for effective class sizes. Their science curriculum, specifically zoology and chemistry 2 courses, also puts students without smartphones or without additional funding for constantly buying new equipment that could easily be loaned out are at a serious disadvantage, as much information was instructed to be recorded through cameras and made unavailable through other means of recording due to severely rushed time constraints.

    UWF has a small campus feel with all of the benefits of a large university. The registrars office has been extremely helpful in answering any questions and offering solutions. Tuition costs are affordable with a wide variety of degree choices.
