4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes are average, but the environment in the classrooms are great.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't gotten that far in my degree yet, so I can't really comment a whole lot on this aspect. However I do know there is a career center that is there to help you.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are a lot of options to eat. The menu is never the same because they try to change it up a lot. I love how big the dining areas are.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The parties are great and anyone can come. It's not a huge scene but there are parties around.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is very easy to get ahold of anyone in financial aid. They work with you in any way you need it for you to be able to afford college. It was a really quick process compared to other schools.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone pretty much gets along with everyone. There is some people who don't get along, but it is more of a personal issue for them. It doesn't matter how you dress, what your interests are, what you look like, what you are involved in or who your in a relationship with because people don't seem like they judge anyone based on those aspects. I get along with everyone and we aren't all into the same things.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Any type of sport you would like to participate in is at UWF. It is relatively easy to get into a sport. Everyone supports everyone and I believe the school spirit on campus is amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus, and UWF makes sure that every ethnicity has an equal chance to get involved. Therefore it is up to the student to get involved because there are plenty of choices for everyone.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty awesome at UWF. They are involved in a lot of things on campus like homecoming and student council. The offices are located in or close to the center of campus.

College Sophomore

Majors: I know I need a portfolio review, and I am currently working on building mine up a little more from high school. However I have not entered the process yet.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I do enjoy it, and I was even able to get into the housing for the fine and performing arts community. I love it because no other school really does that.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: There is a lot of majors that UWF offers, and there are multiple classes you can take to meet the requirements so you are not stuck with just a few choices. The staff is great especially the academic advisors when you are struggling or need any help on anything.

College Sophomore

Academics: I haven't taken any of my major classes yet being that I am going to be a sophomore this fall.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is not a whole lot to Pensacola, FL. If you want to do anything you need to go to Pensacola Beach or Gulf Breeze which is like a 20 minute drive, which is not that bad of a drive to make. There is some shopping and dining by campus and on campus, but again if you want anything particular you need to drive 20 minutes.

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.
