Come see what the Hicks Honors College has to offer!

The Hicks Honors College is an interdisciplinary program designed for high-achieving students that emphasizes experiential and active learning in small classes. This interdisciplinary program provides the personalized education usually only available at small colleges while still offering all the resources of a state university. Hicks Honors College students represent the best that every new class of Ospreys has to offer: students with high intellectual ability, a strong work ethic, and a desire to get the most out of their college experience, both academically and socially.


What is the difference between a campus tour and an Honors tour?

On an Honors tour, you will get to know our hands-on Honors college and get a more in-depth look at what you will be doing as an Honors student at UNF.


Your tour will be led by a knowledgeable and friendly Swoop Squad member who is a currently enrolled student at UNF and is ready to share his or her experiences with you. The tour takes approximately 2 hours.
