Professors at USF are generally knowledgeable about subject matter, willing to work with students, and intent on helping students pass. However, there is always the chance that students will end up with a graduate student professor who can barely speak English, or an 80-year-old science professor that makes Ben Stein look like Robin Williams. While these kinds of classes can seem unbearable, students must sometimes force themselves to suffer through them because the class with the horrible professor just happens to be the only class that meets the credit requirement. On the other hand, during their time at USF, most students will be lucky enough to come into contact with at least a few professors that will have an incredible impact on their lives.
Because of recent budget cuts, classes are sometimes crowded, which can be intimidating. USF is aiming to expand the University so that it may get more funding and offer more classes, but the school still has a long way to go. Some departments are faring better than others, but some have been exhausted by an overabundance of students. Although USF offers a variety of majors, clubs, and resources for its students, the hectic environment can sometimes make classes more difficult and confusing than they normally would be.
