Great and knowledgeable professors that are willing to help students. Awesome organizations on campus with lots of community service opportunities. Particular major is carefully designed to teach applicable skills helpful in the workforce/career path. On-campus facilities are well-kept and resourceful. The building architecture is absolutely stunning! Would like to see more scholarship opportunities for minority students. Federal Work-Study could offer more financial help, as the university is a private institution. Also more funding for the Theatre and Dance department. Would love to see study abroad programs from art and dance students to study artistic subjects across the globe.

The University of Tampa is absolutely amazing! I entered the historical, main building (for my fourth college tour of the week) expecting another bland environment but was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by lively and welcoming students. The tour guide was exceptionally helpful, and highlighted the schools best features. During the campus visit I noticed a large diversity of people and fell in love. The campus is gorgeous, the dorms are spacious, and the business department is exceptional! Very well rounded school with much opportunity!
I love my school! They have a good selection of majors that I could choose from, the size of the school is perfect for me, and there are a ton of opportunities to grow oneself. However, it is a HUGE party school, so a lot of kids will get distracted. I know of a lot of people who dropped or transferred after their first semester, which is typical of people who come down to Florida for school from the north. They expect everything to be all fun and to party and go to the beach all the time, but if that's what someone is looking for, they're not going to make it academically.
