Make a Splash!

Some go with the flow. Others make a splash! At the University of West Florida in Pensacola, we know a thing or two about how to make a splash. Forbes calls us one of “America’s Top Colleges.” And the Princeton Review named us a “Best Southeastern College” ten years running. So what does that mean to you? Plenty. We’ll teach you everything we know about making your mark. Already, UWF students are performing at Carnegie Hall, interning on Capitol Hill, even climbing the Great Wall of China.


It’s time to decide if you’re ready to be the newest University of West Florida splasher. Just remember, those who stay on shore never make a splash. Don’t be a shore-sitter. Splash on, #FutureArgo. Splash on! Learn more at uwf.edu/orientation.
