University of South Florida Reviews
I began attending USF in June of 2012, just two weeks after I graduated high school. I started at the St. Petersburg campus. I absolutely loved it! They did not offer my intended major, so I transferred to the Tampa campus and earned my BA in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences with focuses in Communication Disorders and Psychology. I couldn't stay away after that, two years later I re-enrolled at the Sarasota Manatee campus to earn another degree; BS in Communication Sciences and Disorders. USF to me means, you stay forever! The faculty and students make this university an outstanding one. Go Bulls!
I love this university! There are so many opportunities to get involved in the Tampa community and provide service to those in need, while building unbreakable bonds between peers in your same career path. There is something here for literally anyone; from Greek life, organizations for any and all cultures and religions, organizations for every major, and many many more! I personally got involved in the Judy Genshaft Honors college, Muslim Student association, and Medlife. There are many positives to being apart of the wonderful USF build community.
The University of South Florida has truly amazed me with its many involvement opportunities and welcoming atmosphere. I am currently a Nursing Major, and chose this school based on its many opportunities for those seeking a degree in Health Care. USF offers many volunteer opportunities between its 4 on-campus hospitals and is really dedicated to student success and involvement! I have made so many solid friendships at this school, and have been blown away by how amazing USF has been for me. The campus is also so beautiful! I have loved this school so much that I applied and was accepted to work as an Orientation Leader, and I can say from experience it's just as great being an employee of the University too. I feel so blessed to welcome new Bulls to USF!
