Sure, there are many people who know about UNF. But how many know anything beyond that? My guess is not many— including myself. With so much information actually out there I thought, “Why not compile it all into one, easily accessible story?” And as a student about to graduate from the University of North Florida, I didn’t want to leave here without learning about where I was coming from. So then... what exactly is the story behind UNF?

In the last few years, UNF has been named by Forbes, U.S. News and World Report, and the Princeton Review as a top school in the nation. UNF has continued to expand, recently building and opening the  Student Union, Wellness Complex, Osprey Fountains, a new café, and a new, state-of-the-art biology building. Continuing to take in both faculty and students, the future plans for UNF is that it continues to grow and attain a well-defined academic profile.
