Santa Fe College boasts a vibrant student life with a full calendar of events put on by scores of student organizations. SF’s four athletic teams consistently rank high among NJCAA competitive teams, and for non-athletes they offer a free fitness center and intramural sports.
Located on the SF Northwest campus, the UF at SF center is the physical embodiment of SF’s partnership with the University of Florida. Part study hall, part advisement center, it’s the home base for current and future Gators at SF.
State colleges tend to have a reputation as commuter schools – this is not so at SF. Only about half of the student population are locals. More than 48 percent of our students are from outside our service district, including students from more than 100 foreign countries.
The largest online destination for college professor ratings annually releases a list ranking the nation’s top university professors based entirely on students’ input. SF professors are consistently ranked among the top ten university professors.
Santa Fe College has one of the lowest costs of attendance of all higher education institutions in Florida. In fact, while many schools have raised tuition year after year, SF has kept rates flat. The college also provides tens of thousands of dollars each term in student aid in the form of grants and scholarships.
Academic life is highlighted by an honors program, student government, Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, model United Nations, “Research in Undergraduate Education” programs and annual festival, and an international program that features study abroad in eight foreign countries each year.
