What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
The workload at UWF is a little heavier than some colleges, but not so much that you can't handle it. Just be sure to keep track of your grades and deadlines right from the start of the year and you will be fine and it will be very worth it.
Christopher from Grand Ridge, FL
Apply Early! The quicker you get your application in, the more chance you have to get in and to get scholarship money. Also, ask around before you sign up for just any professor. Try to make the most out of your first year!
Haley from Pensacola, FL
Come to UWF with an open mind and ready to make lots of friends! The spirit here is so amazing you'll be knocked off your feet. The campus isn't too big but everything has a good distance between it. Attend all the events on campus because you get so much free stuff and food!!
Emily from Pensacola, FL
-Go to class, a lot of people I know like to skip and ask me why they failed at the end of the semester.
-Pay attention, just sitting in class won't make you learn, you have to LISTEN to what the professor says
-Get involved on campus, whether it be by going Greek, working with CAB, or helping some other way.
Eric from Pace, FL
Know what you want in a school before applying. If your looking for a Rah Rah party campus West Florida is not for you. We are academically oriented with some partying.
Rachel from Babson Park, FL
Mainly a science and business school. Scholarships are available at school.
Lindsay from Pensacola, FL
The counseling center is helpful, as is the career center. It'd be wise to make use of both, especially the career center.
Karyssa from Navarre, FL
I highly, highly recommend e-mailing and meeting up with the professors during their office hours. It can really make a difference!

I also recommend that you talk to your majors' advisors. They can help keep you on track and prevent potentially costly detours.
Tien from Pensacola, FL
- Whatever you do, get to class on time. From personal experience, you can miss A LOT of information, even if you're just 5 minutes late. In those 5 minutes, the professor could be telling the class what that day's lesson was going to be about. When you walk in later, you're disturbing the rest of the class, and then you have to ask one of your classmates what the professor is talking about, further disrupting the learning environment.
- BE ACTIVE! Get down and dirty with the University activities. It doesn't matter whether you just like standing on the sidelines and watching, or being proactive, just GO. That's the best way to get to know the peers you're going to be in class with throughout the years, and possibly graduate with. I doubt they'll bite; just get in the game.
- USE YOUR PROFESSORS! Talk to them; they will listen. GO to their office hours; they're there for you. Ask them questions; that's the only why you'll find out the REAL answers. They are being paid to help you succeed, so take advantage of the opportunity.
