One More Reason To #BeAnOsprey: Catch a wave between classes

#BeAnOsprey-blog_beachThere is a reason Florida is called The Sunshine State. And where better to experience the Florida sun than at the University of North Florida.

Jacksonville is home to over eight miles of sandy beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. Did we mention that these beaches are only a short ten-minute drive from the UNF campus? Being that close to the water means you really can catch a wave between classes or get a free lesson from the UNF Surf Team!

The “Beaches” are a hub for shopping, art, music and other community events.

        • Jax Beach Art Walk- See dozens of great local artists, hear local musicians perform, and visit the participating businesses
        • Great Atlantic Festival The only oceanfront seafood festival in the Southeast
        • Players-By-The-Sea Theatre A first-class community theater with wonderful productions from drama, comedy, and musicals
        • Jacksonville Beach Fishing Pier– Nearly a quarter of a mile long, the pier offers visitors close up views of the Atlantic Ocean
        • Acoustic Nights– Come hear local musicians perform popular music solos or play with a small band on the lawn at Bull Memorial Park
        • Freebird Live- A two story music venue that showcases a spectrum of national and regional touring artist, as well as, select inspiring local artist
        • Beaches Town Center- a wealth of choices to shop, dine, relax and simply enjoy the beautiful courtyards and bricked walkways, outdoor seating and the beautiful ocean breezes.
