Dear UF Students and Prospective Students,
Welcome to the University of Florida!
As a major international research institution, UF offers undergraduates a wealth of opportunities on campus and beyond. I challenge you to get involved in undergraduate research, to participate in a travel-abroad program or to join one of the hundreds of student clubs and activities we have on campus.
UF is dedicated to excellence in all that it does. I am continuously impressed with the quality of student experiences in and out of the classroom. Whether conducting research, spending a term abroad or interning at a major company, UF students are making the most of the abundant opportunities available at this university to learn and to grow.
The undergraduate catalog will provide the tools for you to explore the wide variety of undergraduate majors and minors as well as to sample the broad selection of courses we offer. Please acquaint yourself with the academic policies and regulations you will need to know in order to progress smoothly through UF.
My very best wishes for your success. We have the highest expectations for our students. I know you will take advantage of all we have to offer.
J. Bernard Machen
