What is it like at UFV?‌

In the classroom

UFV is best known for its small class sizes and dedicated instructors.

In smaller classes, you are more likely to get face time with your professors — both during class and office hours. Small classes allow you to participate in lively discussions, receive help, practice skills, ask questions, and be as successful as you can be at university.

You also have the opportunity to engage in research at the undergraduate level in fields such as molecular science, human performance, criminal justice, sustainability and agriculture. This type of experience gives you an edge when applying to competitive graduate schools and can help you fast-track your career.

Outside of the classroom

Successful learning involves more than quality programs and formal instruction. UFV is a tight-knit, supportive community, offering you countless opportunities to learn leadership and life skills, both formally as part of student programming and informally through your involvement in the local community.

You may decide to work on a UFV committee or board. Or choose to join on of UFV's 50+ clubs and associations. Or become a student leader, peer mentor, volunteer, or varsity athlete. At UFV, you can make a difference, learn more about yourself, and build your leadership skills in preparation for your future career.
