    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).

    I loved the University of Tampa because of the diversity on campus, the overall student life, the class sizes and how students are able to connect to professors, and the beautiful downtown area where it is located. They have recently built a new nursing building with some of the best technology available. Tampa is a beautiful area and the university fits perfectly in it. I would only change the tuition price and the financial aid given by the school because they are quite competitive but, overall it is an excellent school!
    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.
