OLLI’s “Creating a Garden Good for the Planet & You” three-session class was featured in the Resident Community Newspaper for the December 2016 issue, titled, “Local park serves as classroom for learning institute”! We are so happy to have our OLLI adventures recognized in our local community!

Here is a snip-it of the Resident Community newspaper article, written by Julie Kerns Garmendia, on how OLLI members and instructors learned from and interacted with the Native Park:

“The class was designed to boost knowledge about native plants, shrubs and trees and to highlight the importance of protecting, attracting and nourishing wildlife, bird and insect pollinators, which are responsible for pollinating one third of our food supply. The class met at the quarter-acre, triangular-shaped Native Park located at 3312 Park St. between Avondale Avenue and Belvedere Streets.”

ACT/SAT® Preparation Courses at UNF - A Wise Investment!

Need help with the SAT? We have just the SAT® Preparation Course and tools you need!

With its debut in March 2016, the new SAT has begun to make its impact with the class of 2017. With a focus on skills that matter most for college readiness and success, according to the latest research, it is even more important that students are familiar with the redesigned Reading, Writing and Language Arts and Math sections. 

The new SAT includes a reading test, writing and language test, and a math test. The SAT has an optional essay component, required by some colleges.

Begin the course by taking an official full-length retired SAT test (remember to bring two #2 pencils!). At the end of the course, you will take another full-length retired SAT exam. Post-test data scores will be emailed to you after completion of the course.

Our expert instructors use your pre-test results to guide you through each section of the Revised SAT exam and provide personal attention in and out of the classroom. Whether you need assistance with the reading, writing and language or math section of the SAT, this course will help you maximize your score. 

Our last SAT course participants had an average score increase of 73 points from Pre to Post test results! Wow!

Learn useful study and test-taking and time management strategies to reduce your anxiety and improve your scores.

ACT Prep courses are also available!!
