    The University of Tampa is a very welcoming community. I have enjoyed immersing myself in Tampa's cultural history and the close proximity to downtown. As for scholastics, this school is as rigorous, or as straight-forward, as you want; depending on the major, courses, and opportunities you select. I would say the one draw back to this school is finances. During this time of pandemic, it is also difficult to get help through the school, whether it be student housing, financial aid, or any other form of relief. Otherwise, this school is usually great at getting back to you and I've enjoyed my experience here tremendously. I love all the programs this school has to offer and I've joined so many while, in the process, making so many lifelong friends and even priceless employment opportunities. This school will help you bulk your resume in such a positive way because it's so difficult to float through and not be tempted to join one of the projects or organizations they've got going on!

    Attending The University of Tampa was the best decision I ever made. If you have the chance to visit campus, you will know why. The location is extremely unique and offers so much in terms of activities, events, internships, and natural beauty. The housing is unmatched with some of the nicest and most spacious dorms and the food is pretty good! Professors genuinely care about students and helping them achieve success. I felt that there were so many resources and opportunities for students to have their needs met and feel included. I'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and went to UT rather than following the masses.
    UT has amazing professors who are genuinely concerned about student learning. There are so many opportunities to be involved in hundreds of clubs, sports, and activities. Career services is also useful in providing career/internship/resume/etc. help every week! UT has a beautiful campus and many amazing new buildings (such as the Graduate Health Sciences building, Palm apartments, etc.). The fitness center is state of the art (AMAZING) and has its own calisthenics room. UT also has a pool open to students and has very strong sports teams such as volleyball, baseball, and swimming, etc. The Honors Program provides many opportunities for extended learning, symposia, and networking.
    CONS: UT wifi is often very poor, arguably too much money is spent on landscaping, and there is no housing for juniors and seniors (who must move off-campus).
