5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love the campus great students and professors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: University of South Florida is great. If you go through rate my professor you can make your classes much more easy and interesting. During Orientation USF provided an extremely fun environment and got information to us easily. We also stayed the night there which other colleges don't do. To me this was terrifying at first but help me open up more. Out of the 5 schools I visited it was my #1 pick. No college is perfect though. Prepare yourself!

Overall Experience: I love the school. Everyone I meet enjoys the campus and the surrounding area.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year of college at the University of South Florida was absolutely incredible. I went to the University of Florida without knowing anybody. A few students from my high school applied and were accepted, however the relationship I had with them was just an "acquaintance" status. As I entered the semester, I made new friends from different parts of the country and the world and immediately got involved within the school. I joined the women's soccer team and was elected senator for the Housing executive board to help other students to get involved. The one thing I enjoyed the most was how the University of South Florida has a diverse student body. Everywhere I went on campus I met someone from either the Middle East, China, or from Europe studying at our school. Their culture and their perspectives were so different from ours which gives me the idea of studying abroad. Overall, my school is unique because at the University of South Florida because everyone wants to get involved somehow at the university, the diversity the university selects, and the urban feel the school provides making the school feel like home. Now I am looking forward to the new school year as I plan to engulf my time doing research and getting more involved with the school. Because of the experiences I have created, I would definitely choose the University of South Florida again if I could.

Overall Experience: College can be a long and arduous process, especially the required core education courses, but once I began classes within my major I felt a renewed sense of motivation. The faculty seem more interested and informed, and class discussions become deeper.

Overall Experience: University of South Florida has the most dominating research programs and biomedical technology in the states of Florida. It is the best college for who is highly motivated in biomedical sciences and research-oriented student like myself.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its a pretty good program. Easy to use not bad at all

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I definitely find myself wondering if I should've gone to a different university just based on the experience. But truth be told, my university is incredibly global and allowed me to study abroad for a semester in England... And I owe that experience my entire life. Only USF made that happen for me.

Overall Experience: I love my school, and the teachers are great. I wish I had more time to join clubs or do extracurricular activities.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am an upcoming freshman at USF-Tampa, and I am very excited to start school in the fall. So far, my experience with the school has been great. They have managed to assist me personally with any of my concerns regarding housing assignments, and they really know how to keep up with communication with their upcoming students. The application process was simple and getting ready for college was less stressful thanks to their guidance.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a student in the University of South Florida I have grown in a level of maturity unsurpassed if I were to live at home in New York. I have grown to become independent and fearless towards what the world has to bring me. And of course I attribute most of my growth to the heavenly father, but if it was not for the people of this school I do not think I would have grown to have a relationship with him. Being introduced to Christ strengthened my relationship with my parents, my fear of talking in front of people has passed, and I have never felt more beautiful in my entire life. I owe the University of South Florida for its dedicated campus ministries, for without them I do not think I would perform in such grace and happiness in my work. I have struggled with kidney failure, sleepless nights, and being the mediator for anxious architecture students, all the while having to work in order to get a residency. But without the University of South Florida and the grace God has poured on it's students I would not have been able to make it. So, I thank the University of South Florida for introducing me to Jesus Christ and being filled with fun, positive Christians who in Jesus' name are saved and righteous.

Overall Experience: The huge campus can be a little intimidating at first, but it's fun to explore on your free time. There is the Bull Runner bus system that takes you all over campus and the areas around campus for free, we also can ride the Tampa HART bus system for free.

When it comes to studying, the library is always packed (but it's emptiest on saturdays), there are other nice places to study that are actually better to concentrate, like the student center, the engineering buildings, the 5th floor of the science center (it says it's specifically for geology students, but I doubt they would kick you out), the Natural&Environmental Science building....and basically any building that's open.

The dining halls are mediocre, but don't get the most expensive plan, it's not worth it.

Administration: You're still able to do what you would like. You just have to have courtesy for the rules set.

Campus Food: With many allergies and medical limitations it's hard to find food to eat.

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.
