The campus has literally the best location. Its right along the Hillsborough river all you have to do is cross a bridge to get into downtown Tampa. Super urban which is great. Its also a medium size school so its easy to walk around to your classes. This school is easily the prettiest campus I've seen (and I've seen A LOT). Academically the school is also excellent. Great professors who actually care about the subject they are teaching. However the school is super expensive. Also the school spirit is nonexistent. The party scene is lacking as well. People mostly go to clubs (they have 18+ available) but you have to pay for an uber and at least $20 to get in (not including alcohol and food) which needless to say gets pretty expensive. There are a few frat parties every once in awhile but you have to know someone to hear about it. If your not into sports and get scholarships then this school is great! Just not the community I was looking for.

My experience here at the University of Tampa has been fantastic! The amount of effort the school puts in to make things happen is unbelievable. Everyday you can count of something going on. For example, sometimes the school has "Puppies from 1-4 p.m" in the courtyard. I have never heard of other schools bringing puppies to play with for students! Not only is the school in the middle of the most beautiful cities but the campus is outrageously pretty and very clean.
I did not enjoy being here first semester and was so set on transferring, however, after giving it another chance I realize that the University of Tampa has so many opportunities to offer. Other than the beautiful campus which most students fall in-love with before they are even admitted here, the academics and professionalism at UT stands out. Something that I love about this college it does have a small population, which results in usually seeing the same faces everyday. This brings us closer however, making us more of a family than just a number at a university, and that reminds me of high school. The University of Tampa was my last choice when it came to where I wanted to go to college, but if I knew what I know now I would have committed the day I was accepted!
