Calling All Ospreys…it’s Nest Fest!
Homecoming is always a special event and the homecoming at UNF is known as Nest Fest. It is a week-long celebration that has something for everyone: students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and friends. It is typically held in February. My daughter and her friends were super busy with different events. To give you an idea of the events, here is a schedule of events. There are many events that take place and these are worth highlighting. Hope you all have a great time!
