Hey Guys! I am trying to find some one to take over my lease for my apartment at College Vue. It’s a really nice room and common area. I live with 3 other girls who are really sweet! The rent is $650 but every utility is included. Water, power, garage, cable and WiFi is all included and there is free parking! There is an infinity pool, tanning bed, movie room, and gym; all of the amenities are open 24 hrs. The apartment is fully furnished, but I have some additional bedroom furniture and storage items that are included for free if you want them. It’s a year long lease but you would have the option to renew if you wanted to. Please message me if you want more information or if you know anyone’s looking for a place to live! Thanks!

🀯 There is a lot going on in the Commons right now! Argos Go Global is in full-swing, and UWF staff are onsite to share info about programs and services just for you . UWF Global Quarter UWF First Year Experience UWF Student Accessibility Resources UWF Counseling and Psychological Services

Hey Argos! How is your Summer going? Today we are here to show you 5 different spots of interest in Pensacola you might be interested in visiting!

#1 Historic Pensacola Village. Take a step back in time when Pensacola was under Spanish and British rule. Walking through this village is like going on a time machine during the early years of American history. The settlement looks like Virginia's Colonial Williamsburg in many ways!

#2 Big Lagoon State Park. Enjoy the activities and nature at Big Lagoon State Park! Spread in 705 acres, Big Lagoon State Park meanders through the shores of Big Lagoon. The park area is popular for picnics, camping, fishing, hiking, boating and swimming!

#3 Naval Air Station Pensacola. The Naval Air Station features different facilities and services for the operation and maintenance of airplanes!

#4 Bay Bluffs Park. Bay Bluffs Park is surely for those who love to walk and admire nature. It is a broad walk with long staircases, perfect for those who want to stroll around!

#5 Fort Pickens. Explore the America Civil War history at Fort Pickens.
Built in 1834 by the United States military, Fort Pickens is a historic fort is named after American Revolutionary War hero Andrew Pickens.
