What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
The University of West Florida has a beautiful campus, a friendly faculty and staff, and excellent and fast services available to its students. Most of the services (such as the library, polices station, on-campus restaurants, the commons, etc.) are open late if not around the clock and provide superb service, the teachers are highly skilled and most make appointments to work individually with students on issues, and the amount of spirit shown by everyone at the school through crazy and interesting school activities is unparallelled. I'm really glad I found UWF.
Christopher from Grand Ridge, FL
This University is small and easy to operate. Class sizes are of a decent size to allow you to get a thorough education. The campus life the other students make the experience worth while.
