Welcome from Alumni Board President
Welcome to the University of West Florida! On behalf of more than 80,000 alumni, I am pleased to share with you why there has never been a better time to be an Argo.
The University is growing and advancing its programs to serve the needs of 21st Century students while also addressing the demands of employers in Northwest Florida and beyond. In my brief time as alumni president, I have attended numerous events celebrating record-breaking donor gifts to our various educational programs. These gifts are attracting new talent and resulting in recognition that will take our University to new heights.
We’re seeing tremendous momentum in our athletics programs, especially as a means for enhancing student life and bringing people to our campus. Our young football program has been exciting to watch, and the games and other events have invigorated students, alumni and others throughout our community in new ways.
The Argo spirit is being felt across Northwest Florida, too, as our alumni increasingly are engaged within local communities and helping to drive economic progress in our region. And that’s no surprise when you look at the numbers. It’s exciting to see the impact UWF has on our area. As we celebrate the University’s 50th Anniversary this year, I invite you to join us by taking advantage of all that this great institution has to offer. If you are considering enrolling as a student, I will tell you it’s one of the best decisions I ever made.
