Join the Swoop Squad!

Do you find yourself swooping anytime, anywhere? Do you want to share your Osprey pride with those around you? We want YOU to apply to Swoop Squad! 


Did you know that tour guides are one of the most influential aspects of a student's decision to attend a university? That's why we invest in our swoopers! Once hired, you'll complete a paid semester-long training to become the best of the best!


The Welcome Center offers 20+ tours a week ranging from general, to 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 aspiration! 


From the clubhouse to the classrooms, the Student Wellness Complex and everywhere in between, you would have the opportunity to share what life is like at UNF - all while walking backwards! Being a member of the Swoop Squad also allows you to grow professionally and can add skills like public speaking, networking, leadership and more to your resume for when you graduate. 


If you are up to the challenge of being a Student With Outstanding Osprey Pride (SWOOP!), we encourage you to apply today!


The application for Swoop Squad will reopen in January 2021.
