UWF: An Overview for College Counselors
UWF serves just over 10,000 undergraduate students, a little more than 12,000 students total. Depending on your perspective, that makes us a large campus or a small one. Either way, UWF puts strong, engaged faculty in the classroom. That means UWF undergraduates work directly with faculty in research and other forward-looking experiences. Simply put, UWF creates a dramatic and dynamic learning environment that often isn’t available at other colleges and universities, of any size.
UWF is the kind of place where students have the chance to shine and to lead – not get lost in the shuffle or blend in with the crowd.
Real University, Real Connections
UWF is the right place for students who want:
- Access to all the resources and reach of a real university with a national identity
- Opportunities to lead and learn at the same time
- Genuine bonds with faculty and fellow students that outlast their time on campus
