Modeled after downtown Jacksonville’s Art Walk, this event provides artists from the UNF and Jacksonville community the opportunity to display their personal talents and creativity. Come out and be a part of the local art scene with talents ranging from painting and drawing to iron casting and dance.


The Alumni Association invites you to visit our "stop" along the Art Walk in the UNF Gallery of Art. Enjoy refreshments and receive special access to the gallery, where you will have an opportunity to meet Dr.     Debra Murphy, chair of the Department of Art and Design. You will also get the chance to view the Art and Design Student Juried Annual Exhibition meet some of the student artists who contributed to the exhibit.

2015 Freshmen Send Off Events 


We are planning to get on the road again this year. If you attended one of these events last year, you know how great it was to meet other UNF families before your student left for college. We are looking for hosts so let us know if you wish to host a send-off event in your home in late spring or summer so we can get the dates on the calendar. The events are held around the state and we will travel outside Florida if invited. This year alumni will join us in Tampa and Orlando. Contact us at parents@unf.edu to host a send-off or other regional event.
