University of South Florida - Main Campus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (45)
This is a large school with a ton of students and often times you will feel like a number rather than a name, which is a downfall to the school. There are small things that need to be fixed on the Main Campus, like parking. There are never any parking spots, no matter when you arrive, even though you pay $183 for a parking permit. However, this is a beautiful campus, with many learning opportunities, clubs, sororities, honors societies, etc. that can make this a great place to earn your degree.
University of South Florida is a great place to study. There is always interactive events and festivities that make it fun while working hard. The students take pride in the school and always showing school spirit. Some classes are a small size and intimate attention, while others are great in size. However, there is so much help with tutors and teaching assistants.
The University of South Florida was a great school to obtain my Bachelor's degree in Mass Communications/Public Relations. They taught me the importance of interning while in college to test the waters in my field as well as join student organizations related to my field to help develop a network and enhance my college experience. I followed those directions and I believe it helped me get the most out of my college career .
My time at the University of South Florida was AMAZING! It is a very diverse school with a beautiful campus. When I say diverse, I mean you'll see White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, and more just about everywhere you go. There are so many different organizations and activities going on that you have a hard time deciding which one to be a part of. When it comes to my degree, it hurts me to say that it does not pay after college. I have a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences with concentrations in Criminology & Sociology. I struggled with getting a decent job, let alone a job that paid a decent amount. Now I'm back in school pursuing a Master of Science in Counseling degree to allow my resume to compete with others in my field. I don't regret my degree because that's what I wanted BUT I wish I picked up a Minor in something that pays.
The University of South Florida gave me so many opportunities. The classes were invigorating and challenging, and everyone was very encouraging . The amount of options of organizations to join, allowed freedom and diversity of each individual. Whether you are considering USF as a commuter school, or a school to attend while going away from home, I highly recommend it.
I think this is a great university for someone looking for exciting research. The classes require a lot of independent study, but the graduate students are good at working together to learn the material. The level of research is excellent.
I am an alumni who attended in 1986, but did not graduate. I would like to return for online classes. Even attending one semester improved my position for being hired in the workforce. If I ever complete my bachelors degree I hope to create a better place for us all to live. My dream is to own my own Bed and Breakfast motel.
My college classes were effective, informative and enjoyable. I transferred from St. Petersburg College, where I did not feel as positive as I did at USF. Although class sizes were for the most part smaller at SPC, I did not feel I was getting as much information, and the format was too structured and shallow. My professors at USF seemed genuinely concerned about my understanding and success. I am grateful to USF for giving me a positive college experience and a degree and education that I can be proud of.
The general culture of USF is unique. It is a amalgamation of various types of student backgrounds, upper and lower class, national and international, melding together into one calming melting pot. The college employed world class professors and educators ready and willing to ensure your learning objectives are met.
More student support for anxieties and mental health would be beneficial to the program.
