What is it?
Argo Link is a program designed to help First Time in College (FTIC) students adjust to the University of West Florida, and to encourage them to become active and informed members of the campus community. The purpose of Argo Link is to get new Argonauts out having fun, meeting people and getting connected to UWF by attending campus events. Argo Link is an incentive-based program for FTIC students who earn prizes for attending campus events deemed 'Argo Link events.' Prizes will be awarded to students who attend multiple events and have the highest point values at the end of the semester.
