|Not so bright|
| I have attended other colleges prior to this "university" and this experience was not good. I spent more time calling financial aid, housing, registrar for issues that the school was not addressing than I did for actually doing work for school. Leaving students on hold, not returning phone calls, giving you the run around. Students are really put last here. If you are a sports player though, you have it made-- study? whats that? but still get good grades....right--they must just know everything without studying!! But make sure that the ATHLETIC fee is put on all of the students tuition fees--can't forget that. I missed the other schools when I was at this one. Some of the instructors I had made the college experience very miserable--nasty, rude, unwilling to answer questions. Some were really good. The housing dept. forget it--rude, nasty, all they care about is getting your money. The housing a TOTAL DUMP. MOLD on the WALLS, in the stairs, the shower. Horrible conditions but make sure you pay your housing on time or there will be late fees. This university is the classic example of people there to collect a pay check and care about nothing else. Horrible would never recommend this place to anyone and will be going to another University for masters. Plus we pay all this money for "technology" fees half the time you can't even access Blackboard or school email is down--that is really helpful when you have to get assignments turned in for online classes. Take my word for it--find another school. Also, the area around the school is run down--nothing to do. The reality is all universities are there to make money but there are some out there where you get treated with respect and you feel like the money you are putting toward your education is worth it- not here. The best is when you call and ask about a "misc" fee on your tuition bill. The response is..."That is just a "misc" fee. You ask for what? "I am not sure, that's a good question" End result...you still don't know but if you don't pay, you get dropped from classes. |

| I love USF, i think that there are many things for all types of different students. There are many orginizations that can make all the different sudents here feel accepted. I could not imagine going to school any where else. It isnt a big party school if u are looking for that, not to say that their arent parties. We know how to have fun, it mostly depends on who you hang out with. I think that no matter what race you are, there is a place for you. No activity is geared to any certain race, mostly just popular culture here in florida. We have alot of school pride here at USF, especially this year... We stick with our teams, no matter how many games they lose =] The faculty are really easy to get in touch with from my experience, and they are very friendly. Everyone at USF is pretty friendly, I have yet to meet someone who refuses to point me in the right direction. I would advise that you pick your dorm wisely, talk to other people you know that go to USF, and live on campus. I would suggest living on campus at least for your freshman year, just to become rooted in the community and get to know everyone well. When choosing housing you should also look on the housing website and look at every single dorm type. If you know anyone who goes to USF stay with them and try to get a feel for the school. The tours are ok, but when i took mine i couldnt see myself here, now i cant see myself anywhere else. The campus has a really "homey" feel, you really feel like you are apart of a big community as cheesy as that sounds. No matter what your intrests are, there is a place for you. I love it here.... |

| I started out on the "drink and party" plan at FSU back in 1990; I was invited not to come back, so I did some growing up in the military and then gave college another shot.|
Quite honestly, I chose USF because it was close to home; my personal opinion is - when looking at your 4-year degree - the school doesn't matter. Why do I say this? I knocked out the remainder of my Psychology degree at USF, then applied for grad schools across the nation after another year of doing research.
I was accepted to all but one of the grad schools for which I applied. The one rejection? Yale. Anyone else reading this get into Yale? I didn't think so. Grad schools (and employers) don't CARE where you get your degree; the only one who should care about that is YOU!
The funny part is, I decided to stay at USF for grad school! I had my choice of programs, yet opted to remain here. There were a lot of reasons, but primarily it was because of the location and my familiarity with the faculty.
If you've read through these 'reviews' from students, you'll see comments that are rosy, racist, or wretched. Before jumping to conclusions, you really must consider the source. When you hear people say "Bull Pride" or "Go Bulls" it is because they are proud of what they have worked so hard to become a part of. Those who don't have it didn't earn it.GO BULLS!
