Meet the Swoopers!



The Welcome Center offers 20+ tours a week ranging from general, virtual, large groups, VIPs, event tours and more. Year-round, rain or shine, it is the pleasure of the Swoop Squad to show prospective students and their families how the University of North Florida will help them as they pursue their future career aspirations! 


The Swoop Squad



"Swoop squad has helped me find my voice and confidence. Talking to big groups and presentations in class has never been easier thanks to swoop squad. I've also enjoyed speaking with prospective students and seeing the different route everyone takes. Best decision has been becoming a tour guide #liveloveswoop"



"UNF has given me the opportunity to flourish, thrive, and excel at all levels of my college career. Being a member of the Swoop Squad allows me to meet prospective students every day and really shape their decision to say yes to the University of North Florida. Additionally, I've gotten to meet some of my closest friends who I now call my family! #Swoop"



"When I toured UNF, my tour guide helped me fall in love with the school and campus. Now that I'm a tour guide, I love seeing students fall in love with the school just like I did. It's so rewarding, and I enjoy seeing students and their parents start to feel at home. Also, all the swoop squad team members are incredible, fun, kind, motivated, and amazing! Never a dull moment in the office!"
