AT UF’S SA+AH, YOU’LL BE PART OF A SMALL AND DEDICATED SCHOOL UNDER THE UMBRELLA OF A BIG UNIVERSITY. This means you get all the advantages and support a small school provides combined with the plethora of opportunities available at a big university.

WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT A SMALL SCHOOL COMMUNITY? With the majority of our class sizes being under 18 students, you experience a tight-knit and truly collaborative classroom community. These small class sizes mean you really get to know your classmates and develop friendships and connections that last a lifetime.
