UWF is a beautiful campus with the atmosphere of the woods and the ocean so it's a beautiful combination. The teachers that I've had have been very helpful and great at teaching their lessons. I'm in my first semester doing Dual Enrollment and it's one of the best decisions I've made academically. I highly recommend UWF.

There's a lot to do in the area. There is also many tutoring opportunities if you're struggling.
