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.
Review University of Tampa
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!
I personally am not into sports that much, but the University of Tampa does offer competitive, and successful division II sports. Lacrosse and baseball are VERY known here, and are also very known for being champions. I know a lot of the teammates, and when it comes to game time they are all designated to working together and preforming at their best. Anytime there is a game there are always kids walking around handing out flyers and promoting attending the game, and at games there usually is a good amount of fans in the crowd. UT is not a college where sports is everything, considering we don't have a football team. However, we make the best of what we have!
