Why UNF?

It has always been my dream to attend a university in America and UNF made that possible. I come from humble beginnings where working hard is the only thing that gets you forward in life. UNF offered me the most affordable means to be here with the help of the International Center always there with support through whatever means. In addition, I chose UNF because I love Florida, the climate is similar to my home country (Jamaica) and it does not get too cold either. Finally, I did extensive research on the schools I was applying for in Florida and UNF was the best hands-down based on tuition, location to beaches and classroom sizes.

What is your favorite thing to do in Jacksonville?

My favorite thing to do in Jacksonville in working out. I took advantage of the multi-million-dollar gym provided by UNF and it has been one of the best gyms I've been to in
