The campus is beautiful. It is a rather large patch of green oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle. There is food and plenty of fun student life activities offered daily - including yoga, pet therapy, and many more fun things. The campus is large but security and safety are always felt. There are security phones and emergency beacons every few feet. The professors at the school of nursing in particular are top notch. They are interested in giving their time to help student's succeed. The return on investment here is absolutely worth it!

As a second year undergraduate student, I have gained such insight as to how to develop lifelong friendships, connections, and how to grow psychologically. My overall experience at The University of South Florida has been an incredible journey thus far. I have been involved with multiple organizations and attend every athletic event I can. The University of South Florida offers a gargantuan amount of opportunities to get involved within the campus, and I am proud to be a Bull!

Courses:
Most of my professors have been very enthusiastic about the subjects they teach and always expressed the desire to help my peers and I understand the material. They state the course goals and calendar on the first day, then jump right into the material without wasting time. Online courses are also convenient for clearing Foundations of Knowledge and Learning (FKL) courses at USF.

Campus:
The campus has been described as a 'mini-city' at orientation. It is a wide campus with many facilities for student use. The facilities are constantly maintained and kept clean by friendly personnel. The facilities I've frequented are the music building, the Marshall Student Center, and the rec center.

People:
Advisors teach you how to go through your curriculum properly and direct you to learning opportunities. Personnel who provide help over the phone are friendly as well. It's a diverse community with new friends and connections to be made in each course.
