Get to Know Jazz Bond
Why did you decide to attend the University of North Florida?
I decided to attend North Florida because of the great coaching staff that recruited me. When I came to visit UNF, I fell in love with the beauty of the campus and the city of Jacksonville.
What do you like most about UNF?
The thing I like most about UNF is the family environment. Everyone on campus is so supportive and loving and will do anything to help you achieve.
What has been your coolest UNF experience so far?
The coolest UNF experience I had was going to the Oz Fest and being able to be a part of a concert held on my own campus.
When you’re looking to de-stress and relax a bit, where do you go on campus?
The place I go to de-stress is on the balcony of the boathouse. Not only is the food great there, but also you get to see a nice view of the campus.
Do you have any advice for high school students?
Advice I would give to high school students is don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone, get involved around campus, get a planner and to be present. Enjoy every moment you have while you are in college, because it will be over before you know it.
