UNF Journal: Fall 2017

President John Delaney at the library

From the President

This summer and fall, we welcomed about 2,300 freshmen to our campus — bright, accomplished students ready to embark on their college journeys and the road to adulthood. Our new fall class comes to UNF with an average high school GPA above 4.0 and, once all numbers are in, is expected to have the highest GPA in UNF history. These are our future doctors, engineers, business leaders and researchers — and it all starts here at UNF.

Women in STEM innovate and inspire

Kari Bishop loves thinking about traffic. Unlike others stuck in gridlock, she's pondering ... "Will we need a flyover here?" or "Is the signal timing working effectively?" Bishop is one of the thousands of women who have graduated from the University of North Florida with degrees in STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
