Student Activities

The University offers many diverse opportunities for participation in extracurricular activities and encourages the development of student interest groups and activities. The University Commons and Student Activities Office coordinates all campus activities and organizational programs, maintains a complete schedule of activities, and is responsible for general management of the University Commons.

Involvement in extracurricular activities is a vital part of student life at the University of West Florida. The University officially registers over 100 student organizations in six categories: special interests, academic interests, professional societies, religious organizations, Greek life (fraternities and sororities), and honor societies. These clubs and organizations extend learning from the classroom into real-life situations as students learn to plan events, develop budgets, promote activities, and manage other people through delegation. Students may also start their own organization or student interest group.

The University Commons and Student Activities Office maintains the official roster of all registered student organizations. The University also offers extracurricular activities in music, theatre, forensics, recreation, and various other organizations. In addition, there are many activities and events in which students may participate, assist, or organize. Please refer to the University Commons and Student Activities Website at uwf.edu/ucommons for details.

The intercollegiate athletic program comprises competitive teams in fourteen sports: men?s teams in baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, and tennis; and women?s teams in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track, and volleyball.

The Argonauts compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II and the Gulf South Conference. Championship playoff opportunities are provided in each sport. Each team plays a full schedule of competition with schools throughout the southeastern United States, and many institutions from the midwestern and eastern sections of the country visit UWF in the spring.

The University sports facilities include a field house (3,000 capacity), twelve lighted tennis courts, a lighted baseball park (1,500 capacity), two lighted softball fields (800 capacity), and a lighted track which encircles the varsity soccer field (800 capacity).
