Abbreviations & Acronyms

Avoid using abbreviations and acronyms. Acronyms for college names should only be used in hashtags on social media. #UWFCOH, #UWFHMCSE, #UWFCASSH, #UWFCOB, #UWFCEPS

When using an acronym, do not place it in parenthesis after the first reference. Instead, spell out the word on first reference and use the acronym for second reference and beyond: The event took place at the Center for Fine and Performing Arts. The CFPA is located on the UWF Pensacola campus.
