Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Most students sincerely enjoy USF. Students can look forward to meeting many people from diverse backgrounds, and the teachers are strong role models for students. While classes are sometimes stressful and unbearable, the lessons taught outside of school are invaluable. Sometimes classes can be difficult, but the school offers students numerous ways to relieve their anxieties and stress. With the various top-notch facilities on campus, nighttime activities, dining out, or just laying around in the sun, USF has much more to offer than rock-solid academics. Even shy students who find venturing to a new school hard on them grow fond of USF quickly.

Of course, college is what you make of it. Students who spend their time in their dorm rooms miss out on opportunities to make friends and grow as individuals. Those who get involved in student activities seem to enjoy their college experience much more than those who choose not to get involved. That’s why it is important to take advantage of the opportunities that USF presents to its students. Overall, most students who come to USF enjoy their time there, even if the University was not their first choice of schools.
