5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far after a year of being a "bull" the experience has been phenomenal. I am glad I chose this as my University and am looking forward to continuing my school life here.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: USF provides great help for students who are looking for jobs after graduation of for students looking for internships to build up their resumes. All U.S major companies look to hire many students from the University. I have a couple of friends who have just graduated and are already working for companies in Orlando, Chicago, and even New York. They received help from the University including help with resumes, interview preparation and company contacts. If you use the resources to your advantage it is extremely easy to get internships as well as graduate with a job.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a program on campus called "Safe Team" where from 6pm to 2am, if a student doesn't feel safe to walk alone from one place on campus to another, he/she can call Safe Team and a group of two students either on a golf cart or on foot will accompany the student to their destination. The University takes safety very seriously and has provided many resources to make sure students feel safe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I didn't live in campus housing but my friends that did live on campus had a good experience with living in the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Personally I do not take part of Greek Life but I have thought about joining. Many of my friends are part of Greek Life and from what I have seen and heard from them is that they do many great things for the community as well as have great social gatherings.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The general gym facility that is available for every student is very high grade. It includes a very large weight room with everything one would possibly need. The cardio section of the gym is as equipped as the weight room. There are about 6 racquetball/squash courts, an indoor Olympic pool, multiple basketball courts, dance rooms, and many other features. There is also an indoor track and a rental room where one can rent any equipment needed either for sports or to workout. Everything one would need is available.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: After a year in USF, it has been everything I expected about college. As expected, the work is tough but reasonable. Social life is amazing. Very easy to get to know people and with such a diverse campus it is impressive how easy it is to fit in. Teachers are very understanding and trusting. Students are honest and helpful. Once a friend left her laptop on a bench and the next day was able to retrieve it due to students help through Facebook. Overall it has been an amazing experience and am looking forward to my sophomore year.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is amazing, though I am not a part of any sorority I plan to be this year.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We do not have a very strong football team, but we excel in other areas regarding sports. The school spirit is amazing and full of love and support

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of South Florida is an amazing school. I started attending in the summer of 2015. I believe that was he best thing I could have ever done. I have learnt so much, the school has given me every opportunity to succeed and I believe that I am doing just that. I could not imagine going to any other university. I feel as if this is my perfect fit.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus so much, it is how I met some of my closest friends

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not participate in sports so it does not affect me either way

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love USF quite a lot and I have had excellent experiences so far with the professors

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The staff do a wonderful job of making sure safety is a top priority at our school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm not sure about every degree, but the doctorate degrees are very worthwhile.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are some parking problems but other than that, okay.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek scene is not that big here.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are meaningful in student life, but definitely not the top priority.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers I have had for my classes for the Master's program have all been very helpful in guiding me to where I want to be.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes I've been lucky to have have all been great. I've never had a problem with any of my professors. Even though some classes are taught in auditoriums with over 300 students, they were no issue for me as I'm always attentive, taking notes and sat in the first row to avoid getting distracted by the distance from the professor. All professors do have their different teaching styles, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but one tends to favor some instructing styles over the other. It's a matter of personal preference.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are job fairs often on campus. Being an international student these don't necessarily always apply to me as I can't work outside campus, but the option is there.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've never felt "unsafe" while on campus. I did take my preventive measures like carrying around pepper spray or simply locking my room and hallway doors at night. Police are always around.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus was not a nightmare for me (most of the time.) I did have to share a bathroom with 7 other girls, which could be troubling sometimes. I did apply for single rooms mostly and wasn't given that option. Because my roommate wasn't there for most of the times, I think the experience became easier.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is moderately active at USF. It is not nearly as big as I would've expected, but it certain has an effect on school life and the general atmosphere of it. Greeks and non-greeks are generally not judgmental of each other, except for evident outliers. Greek village is centrally located, near the heart of campus and it houses some, but not all sororities/frats.

4 College Junior

Athletics: USF has great school spirit. Everywhere you look you'll see a person doing the bulls sign with their hands or with a USF shirt. The first football game of the year is always amazing and widely attended. The USF Rec Center could not be better in my opinion. I've used it more and more since the last few months and it's great to keep your health in check.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
