3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Pine Forest just enforces the district rules.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I have only been to basketball games and they are packed. The gym was completely full and the team has some great games. I don't think that there is a lack of school spirit. Sometimes the school goes above and beyond.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: They do have a meal plan that you get a certain number of meals per week. The meal plan you can only use in the market. You also receive a number of Argo bucks that you may use any where else on campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: They do not tolerate underage drinking especially in the dorms. They do a room check once a semester and if you have anyone in your dorm that is under 21 you are not permitted to have alcohol in the room.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I have not personally lived off of campus but I do have friends that do. The cost is not outrageous and the area is safe.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Computer lab is huge with great lounging area for wifi access 24 hours a day. There are so many places to hide and study that I was lost when I first began attending UWF. There is a lab for everything it seems like, so if you need help...it is available. The fact that you can go anywhere and study was one of my favorite things about attending.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: If you don't like the food on campus, then there are many options right outside of campus.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus security is great on campus. It is a very large campus and wooded, so if someone really wanted to push their limitations it can happen just as well as anywhere. I believe that since there are so much woods around our campus that is why special security precautions are constantly taken to prevent crime.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Pensacola is a great place to attend college. People are very diverse here, and we accept international students regularly. I believe that the acceptance and non-biased makes it very easy for people from different backgrounds and cultures to be involved.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I am not sure if they Greek students have dedicated housing, but I do know that there are dedicated buildings for their meetings. I just go to school to earn my education, so this stuff is all mumbo-gumbo to me.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I have always lived off-campus, and it has always worked out for me. There are many apartments in the nearby area, and there are many individual places on that side of town as well. There is also a campus in Milton and other locations down the beach line if you want to move closer towards those areas.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors at UWF stick to the curriculum and sometimes make it even more challenging to get the most from the course. The variety of courses that are offered can meet anyone's needs for fun or to fulfill the requirements of their chosen degree.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The career center on campus is very helpful with professionals and volunteers that are always willing to help. Many companies seek employees from UWF to fill positions. The involvement with the local community is huge, and people from out of the area even seek graduates from our school.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The University of West Florida is in a great location. It is a tourist attraction for many outside of the area. Summers are very active in this area. Downtown Pensacola promotes many activities involving arts and plays. There are also many times of the year that they block the streets off for block parties that involve vendors to promote their art. New stadium downtown has created a huge impact in the sporting area. The Civic center downtown always has new attractions to the area; they also do ice hockey and ice skating during the winter months now.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I didn't ever get too involved, but sports are huge on campus.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I received financial aid up to my 180 attempted credit hours, but the last five courses I have paid for out of pocket. I exceeded my credit hours due to family hardships and now I am seeking aid for the final four courses that I have remaining. I look forward to graduating, but I am so set back financially that paying for these last few courses are going to be a miracle.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: I don't do the party scene, but I know Pensacola well. I would need to say that if someone wanted to party in Pensacola, then it would not be hard to find a place.

5 College Senior

Majors: When I decided to change my major to be geared to teaching certificates that I plan to earn, my advisor was fabulous! She worked very hard for all of my business courses to be transferred over into my new degree program. All of her hard work made the transition to Workforce and Program Development a very happy transition. I did not loose one single credit, and I am able to finish my B.S. online. Not loosing any credits was my largest goal for the re-admission process. All of the advisor's at this university are great and eager to help you succeed. The biggest tip that I can offer to the admissions process ..."go talk to your advisor"! If you need to go back and reevaluate what you are doing, they are all happy to help. Just don't be afraid to ask questions.

4 College Senior

Majors: It is very challenging to be in this program, and I enjoy the challenge. I have been learning tons that will help enable me to teach others the business courses that I look forward to teaching. The instructors have been just as great in this department as they were in the business department. The curriculum that I have learned while attending UWF has pushed me to be even more determined in my success.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Everyone one of the advisers and staff have been very helpful and it is a very nice campus.

College Junior

Diversity: I have not been here long enough to give a good answer.

Overall Experience: Overall all uwf is pretty cool. It's not a huge well known university and there's not much to do on campus. If you are sociable you may really enjoy it. There's a lot of Frats and sororities and if you're lucky you might find a guy or girl that you're in to and that always makes things a whole lot more interesting. It really is what you make of it though.

3 Recent Alumnus

Computers: The computers are pretty basic for the most part but thy get the job done. There are some newer computers on the library and they're pretty awesome they're touch screen and that always makes class work a little more interesting. Besides that I can't really think of anything really special about the computers.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: For the most part everyone minds their business. The locals don't go out of their way to judge college students or anything.... I don't really have much to say on this topic.. Sorry..

Drug Safety: If you do drugs... You do them. You're likely to have all these tricks and tips on not getting caught. If precaution is taken you may or may not get caught but the campus IS a ZERO tolerance university. College kids are going to do whatever they want regardless but it's usually because they want to. Peer pressure is just about nonexistent at UWF. The drug and alcohol users at the school, however, are pretty friendly. Haha. You won't walk around campus finding beer or alcohol bottles. Most drug or alcohol users do their business off campus or in their room. There's never people who have roommate issues regarding drugs either. If someone does believe in drugs or drinking the other roommate 9/10 times will not bring it to the room.

Believe me when I say I know . Haha.
