UWF 50th Anniversary
Fifty years ago, this was just a pine forest. Today, it’s a brain trust. In just 50 years, UWF has changed the lives of more than 80,000 alumni – nurses, teachers, engineers, historians, accountants and entrepreneurs. Give us another 50, and we’ll take over the world.
Fifty years ago was just the beginning. Here’s to the next 50 years of creation, innovation and transformation.
Let’s make some waves. Sea Change.
Change you can see, believe in and aspire to
Change that’s the beating heart of the community, the driving force for our region and the surging waters of innovation and imagination.
Ready to see change?
