The campus is beautiful and open and the population is very diverse, which makes an international student like myself feel welcome. The professors are always willing to help and there are tutors and various resources for every problem you can have, all of which are available for free. There are activities almost everyday from various organizations and departments which allow you to relax and have some food or learn something new. The school also awarded me a great scholarship, without which I probably wouldn't be attending university in this country at all. There are malls, movie theatres, and unique hangout spots in the area and just 20 minutes away is a beautiful city where enjoyable nightlife can be found. I have yet to experience everything that USF has to offer but so far it has been a great experience, GO BULLS!
Review Your College
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!
USF is a great campus! It's big, fun, and full of school spirit! There is always something going on and something to get involved in. They send out "Note-a-Bulls" emails to all students to give them a run down on what is going on that week or that month so you know ahead of time what is coming up! It's a super diverse college as well and there is something here for everyone! Good professors, great library, and study areas, as well as open areas to hangout and relax. On campus housing isn't too bad and if you like night life...Downtown Tampa, Soho, and Ybor are only a quick Uber ride away!
