Facilities: The library is off campus, but there is a large study area as well as computer lab.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The strictness at college isn't terrible because it is a small campus. The are strict about drug use. The only thing I have encountered is the strict parking enforcement with having a decal that is not expired.

Guys & Girls: This really isn't the place to meet people to date. I would suggest going up to the Tampa campus where there is much more variety.

Campus Strictness: There really isn't a need for a lot of strictness on campus, everyone pretty much takes care of themselves and doesn't cause trouble

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: USF Sarasota Manatee is a small satellite school, with lots of potential to grow. It's situated in Sarasota, FL which is outside of bigger cities like St. Petersburg and Tampa Florida which are only about half an hour away. There are lots of great beaches, museums, and shopping between Sarasota and Tampa. I love the area.

2 College Senior

Facilities: Since this is a satellite to the main campus in Tampa, the facilities are sparse. They try to do what they can with what they have but it's pretty pathetic. THere's no bookstore or library on campus - you have to go to the college down the street to share theirs. Which begs the question, why not just go there?

1 College Senior

Parking: With the high rate of tuition, then all the extra fees they are allowed to tack on, I find it unconscionable that USF charges for parking at USFSM. I can see it in the parking garages on the Tampa campus but for the SM campus, it's a disgrace. Just rape the students for more because you can, appears to be the attitude.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Since there is no housing on-campus, the off-campus housing is all that's available. Local rents are high in Sarasota but more reasonable in Bradenton. It pays to shop around.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: The personnel in the Financial Aid office are incapable of independent thought or logic. If it's not written clearly in front of them, and pantomimed for them as well, they just don't get it. Always have to stay one step ahead of them and follow up, follow up, follow up. The "real" financial aid office is in Tampa - the Sarasota-Manatee office is just a satellite and they don't have any authority or decision-making ability (truly) there.
