The largest fitness center in northeast Florida is waiting for you to come and experience all that it has to offer! The UNF Student Wellness Complex is a state-of-the-art wellness, fitness and sports learning facility that opened just a few years ago. It boasts a 34-foot-tall rock wall, an indoor track and a Jamba Juice for healthy post-work out snacking.

The UNF Student Wellness Complex is more than your typical gym. It offers 260 exercise stations, nutritional assessments, personal trainers at a low cost, and it has large glass windows that provide vast views of our beautiful campus while you work out. For a look at this spectacular facility, check out the video at

As a student, you have unlimited access. Not only can you rock climb or run the indoor track, but you can also enjoy the special studios that are designed to accommodate fitness classes such as Zumba, Kickboxing, Yoga, Spin, Ab Attack, Sweat Shop Circuit and many more. With more than 50 fitness classes each week, there is a class for everyone, no matter your fitness level! And with 27,000-square-feet of fitness space, there is plenty of room to bring all of your UNF friends.

Just in case you want even more variety in your fitness routine, there’s more. UNF is home to competitive intramural sports, a skate park and the Osprey Challenge Course which consists of a ropes team building program and a zip line. With all the fitness amenities we offer, there’s no excuse to skip leg day ever again.

One More Reason To #BeAnOsprey: Every Week is Shark Week


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

sharkSurf’s up in Jacksonville, Fla., home of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, St. Johns River and the University of North Florida! UNF’s proximity to such diverse bodies of water makes it an ideal location for the Coastal Biology program, one of our six Flagship Programs.

More than a typical marine biology program, Coastal Biology gives UNF students the opportunity to work directly on research with professors, grow corals, study marine mammal life in UNF’s necropsy lab (the only necropsy lab between Miami and North Carolina) and tag sharks. That’s why we feel confident in saying that at UNF, every week is shark week.

Being a Flagship Program for UNF means that Coastal Biology, along with the other five Flagships, has been elevated as stand-outs among other programs as the best of the best. These programs receive significantly more funding, resources and attention because they have reached a level of national prominence in both scholarly study and research.

Other Flagship Programs include International Business, Transportation and Logistics, Nursing, Nutrition and Dietetics and Music. All of these programs have received impressive accolades throughout the years. Most recently, UNF’s Transportation and Logistics program was recognized as leading the nation in the number of graduates achieving the highest level of internationally recognized professional certification and 80 percent of T&L graduates have a job offer in the field within three months.

Common Application Mistakes to Avoid

Common College Application Mistakes to Avoid

Applying to colleges can be a very stressful process. You have to remember what each school requires and their deadlines. Sometimes, even the smallest mistakes can have big consequences. Below are the most common mistakes we see students make while they are navigating the college application process.

Application Mistake #1: Incorrect Information

Very seldom do students make major mistakes on their applications. However, small mistakes can complicate the process as much as large mistakes. This is the case when students submit incorrect information such as the wrong social security number, date of birth, type of application, term of application, or intended major. It is also very important that when you apply to college you use your legal name. Often students will list a nickname instead of their legal name (e.g. listing “Will” instead of “William). Any of these mistakes can cause a delay in your application because the school may not be able to match your transcripts and/or test scores to your application.  Continue reading
