3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors range from terrible to amazing. All schools are like this, but my chemistry experience was terrible.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not experienced this yet

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have lived in Mu hall all semester and its been the worst experience. It is dirty, old, and there are bugs in the dorms all the time.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Honestly, I wish that I would have joined a sorority because I feel like non greek life students are looked down on.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics at USF are important, but not amazing. There are other colleges that are way better than USF. I think that our school is on the rise for athletics. However, I would not attend this school for sports.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, Paying for college has been my biggest stress. I enjoy learning, but am not doing as well in school as I would like to. I find that if you are not in a sorority here that you are irrelevant. I did not join a sorority and don't think that I would have the time between taking 15 credits and working a full time job. College is stressful, but the education is worth it.

Health & Safety: If you are female I would not suggest walking alone on campus at night, but there is a self defense class.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There was definitely a great variety of classes to choose from and I liked most of my teachers. Anthropology department was small so hopefully as it expands there will be greater improvements.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It's a well known and well liked school so that certainly helps, but I need a masters degree to get a job in my field so I'm not sure what to say on career prospects.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: As a transfer student I had a hard time getting credit for the classes I took at my previous college. Also, the Anthropology department is rather small, but the teachers were good and the campus beautiful.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at this school is horrible. The system to get people to join Greek is so pitted against Greek that no one actually ever joins. Also once you are in Greek the school makes you jump through hoops that take up massive amounts of time and energy instead of helping the chapters grow. Greek life at this school is more stressful than ROTC where you are trained to be a leader.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: For a school as big as the University of South Florida the gym is not nearly big enough. Sports are only slightly relevant but not advertised. I have never even heard of when there is a sporting event other than an occasional basketball game and football game. If it was advertised more and people were encouraged to go it would have a better athletic environment.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A majority of the teachers do not speak english so actually learning the material is really hard to do. The campus is nice and so are the people but at the end of the day if you cannot understand what you are being tested on there is no way to go far in college.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on this campus. They alert you quickly in case anything goes on, which is rare. The area itself is very well maintained and most safety hazards happen off campus due to parties.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: All of my classes, with one exception, have been an enjoyable experience due to the professors. In the one instance where it was not enjoyable, that professor got fired and is no longer teaching at this school. This is a great college to come to for educational purposes.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: I stayed in the worst dorms my freshman year, by choice, as these were the cheapest. Housing is very expensive on campus for very little reason. Soon, the older housing complexes will get torn down, so once the new ones are built, it may be nicer.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: So, from my perspective, I do not like Greek Life in general. I believe it is a terrible practice and do not agree with the Greek Life mentality.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We are not really known for our sports teams. They do okay during the season, but not too many students attend the games. The athletic gym I have heard is nice and the general student rec center is pretty well stocked.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The University of South Florida is a pretty good school. What I most enjoy about it is the fact that it is not a school many know about, yet has very great credentials. It is very under the radar and I really enjoy that about this school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am so grateful to be a student at the USF College of Nursing, the professors are very compassionate about nursing and teaching. Overall I have enjoyed my experience there thus far.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Many people/students attend the football games. School spirit is huge at USF.

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.
