Dylan Blanco

Jacksonville Beach, Florida • International Business

After growing up in Jacksonville Beach, Dylan Blanco considers the Jacksonville area to be a very special place. So when it came time to choose a college to attend, he was pleased to find that the University of North Florida and its campus had so much to offer him. 

With a passion for traveling and experiencing different cultures and countries, as well as a desire to someday open his own business, Dylan chose to major in international business. He looks forward to several semesters of study abroad during his years at UNF.

Get to Know Dylan Blanco
  • What do you like most about UNF?
    The thing I love most about UNF is the diversity it offers. When walking throughout campus, you feel like you can be yourself or anyone you desire without the judgment of others. UNF’s staff really strives and does a great job of making everyone’s real self shine through.
  • What’s your favorite UNF tradition?
    My favorite UNF tradition is the basketball games and the tailgates prior to them. It is great to experience other Ospreys' excitement when it comes to our basketball team. Everyone becomes one big family, all rooting for a familiar outcome. The amount of passion that every student shows when it comes to our basketball team is outstanding.
  • When you’re looking to de-stress and relax a bit, where do you go on campus?
    You can usually find me on one of the upper floors of the library. The higher you go up in the library, the quieter it gets, and sometimes we all need some peace and quiet.
  • If you could meet one historical figure for coffee, who would it be?
    I would without a doubt meet Albert Einstein. I would love to be able to get some insight into the mind of the world’s smartest man. Who knows, maybe he could shed some knowledge on me.
  • Do you have any advice for high school students?
    If I could give any advice to high school students it would be to enjoy the time that you have and never let stress take over. These upcoming years will be the best years of your life; take advantage of them and make memories that will last a lifetime.
