Get to Know John Aloszka
Why did you decide to attend the University of North Florida?
I decided to attend UNF because I love Jacksonville, and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in Florida. I’ve had so many wonderful professors and experiences — I wouldn’t want to leave!
What do you like most about UNF?
UNF has so many ways to be involved. I don’t think I would be Student Body President without the support that UNF has given me.
What has been your coolest UNF experience so far?
Last year, SG went to Tallahassee to lobby on behalf of the Florida Student Association with students from all around Florida. While there, we spoke with legislators about issues ranging from university funding to supporting a bill expanding Medical Amnesty — the latter was just signed by the governor!
When you’re looking to de-stress and relax a bit, where do you go on campus?
The Bamboo Garden is the best spot on campus hands down. Couple the shade with a bowl of fried rice from Panda Express, and you’ve got the perfect lunch break.
Who is your favorite professor? Do you have a favorite class?
My favorite professor has been Dr. Josh Gellers. His comparative politics class opened my eyes to how the world around us works, plus his Twitter is pretty funny.
