The value of a University of North Florida
education has been growing every year in leaps and bounds, and 2013 was no
exception. Our entering freshman class posted the highest test scores in
University history with an average weighted grade point average of 3.94 and an
SAT score of 1215 for both reading and math, placing UNF near the top of the
State University System when it comes to its academic profile.
Fall 2013 marked our second full year of
mandatory first-year housing for freshmen. Students who lived on campus had
higher grade point averages and took and completed more credit hours.
That program feeds into our plan to continue
building a robust Culture of Completion here at UNF, which includes a vibrant
campus community, top-notch academic resources and unparalleled access to
study-abroad and Transformational Learning Opportunities. We want our students
to not only graduate on time, but to graduate with the tools necessary to be
successful in today’s job market.
Students who receive their bachelor’s degree
from UNF are more likely to get a job in Florida than graduates from any other
state university. They are among the highest paid as they start out their
careers and that continues into their mid-careers.
It is a great time to be an Osprey.
