I have loved my experience at USF and think that it is a wonderful school. It is a very beautiful area with a focus on students' education. If there were anything to change, I would love to have seen more school spirit to feel a bit more unified as a public university. This is a small downside in considering the fact that USF has helped me better my education and better myself as a not only a person but a future member of society.

It as only been a week so far but the environment is very welcoming. the campus is beautiful and for the most part I have good classes so far only one professor who does not teach well. I like the food and options for clubs an on campus activities and hope to continue to like it more the longer I am here.
