About IUF 1000: What is the Good Life @ UF

In IUF 1000: What is the Good LIfe, UF undergraduates explore what they must do for themselves and for each other in order to live meaningful lives.  At the end of the course, each student completes the "This I Believe" audio essay (adapted from ThisIBelieve.org). In this assignment, students identify a value or belief that guides them, and they explain how a course work relates to that value or belief.  Students of IUF 1000 are also invited to enter their audio essays in the competition for the This I Believe Scholarship.  

The Finalists of the competition and the recipients of the This I Believe Scholarship have their entries included in IUF 1000: What is the Good Life @ UF. This collection is intended to serve as a resource for current students to consult, to recognize students in IUF 1000 for the exceptional quality of their work, and to provide the UF community with the opportunity to learn more about the purpose and content of the course. To view a list of audio essays, click on View Items in the menu bar (Good Life All @ UF).
