I have been at UT less than 3 months and I am getting out of here ASAP. All the students that go here are beyond dumb and are from New York or New Jersey. If I had to give an accurate statement I would say 9 out of 10 students I have met here are from New York (mostly rich students from Long Island), New Jersey, or the Boston area. If you are trying to meet some life-long friends that care about their education DO NOT come here. I also have not one genuine nice girl that id considered dateable. Its a shit show here.|
-Academics aren't too bad
-Lots of jobs in Tampa
-Can't complain about my professors
-Dorms are really nice
-Food is pretty good, but gets old quickly
-The student body (can't say enough bad things about that)
-Not much to do on campus
-Hard to get involved
-The amount of thrown up i've seen from drunk students
-If you want to do anything fun in Tampa you need a car
-Closest beach is 40 minutes
-Everyone here is very stuck up and rich
-I feel like I am on the show "The Jersey Shore". All most of the students do is gym, tan, and pay for people to do the laundry.
-Amount of students that pop molly is very high.

| This school was the perfect match for me. Yes I am from Long Island so it wasn't a complete culture change. I was not part of Greek life, however many of my friends were. I never felt that my social life would be better if I had went Greek. |
I was very homesick my freshman year but after finding my niche of friends it was the best four years of my life.
If you are from the northeast and like to party there is a good chance this would be a great fit for you. Besides the social life, I spent everyday for four years completely blown away at how beautiful this place was, and how lucky I was to call it home. I was part of the education program which was the absolute best part of my college experience. I have made life long friends, and now after graduating I have stayed in Tampa and got a teaching job. The dept prepares you immensely and does everything in their power to help you succeed.

| The people here suck. All stuck up Long Island and New Jersey kids who call mommy and daddy to deposit money into their bank accounts. All the kids do is party and it was impossible to go anywhere unless you were associated with greek life. |
I am from Massachusetts and came here to play lax, but the lax coach brought in over 100 kids for a 40 man team. When I visited I was blown away by how beautiful the campus was and how they said everything is within distance. You can't get anywhere without a car, the beach is 30min away, and taxis are expensive. Luckily my roommate and neighbors had a car so I could get rides to Walmart.
The professors were outstanding, especially in the business program, I took three business classes and all three teachers were extremely helpful and intelligent, they wanted me to succeed.
The core curriculum teachers were excellent as well, but I felt that some didn't really care for their jobs.
If you get in fill out the residency form right away or you will be stuck in McKay or Smiley (2 shitty dorms) or the hotel about half a mile down the street.
If I was to do it again I would have gone somewhere else. The school offers an excellent education, but the people just suck and that's why I transferred
