Entire Physics department faculty are only there forBrightPhysics
Entire Physics department faculty are only there for the money. They do not care about the students or their success and constantly speak to the students very condescending. The UG advisor for the Physics department is the least helpful person I have met at USF. He only looks out for his peers (professors) even when they harass students. If given the chance I would go to any other school in Florida before USF Physics. Complete waste of money and time. Extremely elitist group who think one way and condemn you for not being exactly like them.

Question
For HS students, get at least a partGeography and Geosciences
For HS students, get at least a part time job and go to a community
college first....unless you are a rocket scientist and know absolutely what you want to do with your life. Most kids really don't and not everybody is college material but other skills make the world function so find your passion. If you go to a college, find one that fits your needs and don't screw aroundbecause you are one of the lucky ones. And never never compromise your professors. College was hard and I just wish I had known what I really wanted to be the first time around....you can never get the past back. Going to college, even late was the best.

Question
USF is by no means a prestigious school.Quite Bright
USF is by no means a prestigious school. It is overcrowded and quite disorganized in administration. Students are treated as customers and will be given a hard time with any sort of monetary transaction. They force students into overcrowded online classes due to a shortage of instructors. The surrounding area is prone to crime, some being violent including shootings. They advertise themselves as being veteran friendly, but will not hesitate to charge vets out of state tuition and hold thier money and classes hostage.If a student's situation is not covered as a checkmark on thier script, they will make no effort to help. Behind thier facade, USF is a mediocre community college posing as a state university.
