Get to Know Dr. Dag Naslund
What do you like most about UNF?
There are so many things to like. I like the environment and the feeling at UNF. It is a relatively small school and significant emphasis is on high quality teaching, but UNF is also producing research that would make any R1 university proud. For example, the two most recent hires in my area, Dong-Young and Nathan, are already making an impact in the field. I also like the potential of UNF. I feel that at Coggin, we have great leadership, both at the departments and in the Dean’s Office, and the future looks fun and interesting.
What’s the most rewarding academic experience you’ve had at UNF in or out of the classroom?
The Coggin’s hooding ceremony. It’s a fun event, and it is rewarding to see how happy and proud the graduating students and their families are.
How do you recharge?
Surfing – ideally with the distinguished professor Guss and sometimes former students who can show us how it really is done.
What advice would you give a student who is about to graduate?
I think it is difficult, or even presumptuous, to give anybody advice on how to live their lives as we are all different individuals, but I guess, "try to enjoy life as it’s pretty short."
