University of South Florida - Main Campus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (61)
My experiences at the University of South Florida have been nothing short of amazing! Many people tend to overlook USF when they think about Florida universities, but this is such a major mistake! Every professor I had at USF was extremely passionate about seeing their students succeed. I was very well prepared for a position in medical school to pursue my dream of becoming a physician. Also, USF prides itself on student diversity, with a greater understanding of global ethnic diversity and tolerance; there are a number of outreach and inclusion initiatives carried out by the university in the community. In addition, USF was recently given $45 million from the state of Florida for student success, with the total funding during 2017 adding up to an impressive $520 million. This extra funding means even more open doors for students when it comes to learning and extracurricular activities. I love that USF is a microcosm of the world, with students from all over the world. I was exposed to many unique perspectives that enhanced my learning throughout college. Also, USF provides many resources to students of diverse interests; in my case, I had access to laboratory experience through Alzheimer's research on campus, a two major hospitals flanking USF's borders and one of the top cancer treatment centers in the country. Not to mention, Tampa is an incredibly fun and diverse city! There is never a shortage of events and fun to get away from academics! We have four professional athletic teams, breathtaking beaches, Gasparilla, unique stores and amazing food! The opportunities are endless at USF, and the community at USF is dedicated to seeing students succeed. GO BULLS!
USF is a good school. It prepared me to pursue my dreams. The quality of Ibstruction and instructors are excellent. I took classes on campus and thoroughly enjoyed the on campus experience. If I still lived in Tampa Bay I would return to USF . I'm currently waiting to start classes at CSU Global. So far this has also been a great experience. I look forward to pursuing a Masters in Teaching and Learning.
The University of South Florida has been such a significant part of my life, as well as the lives of several of my family members. USF provided many options for me to meet new people, explore new cultures, and even learn a new language, all while earning my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences. Between my education, the friends I have made, and the values I have developed, I believe it has given me the perfect base to start medical school in the fall.
USF was not my first choice on the lists of colleges for my undergraduate studies, but I was pleasantly surprised. The campus is beautiful, the diversity there is unmatched. The university's work study program allowed me to study while working flexible hours and the university staff you work with are amazing.
The University of South Florida is a great University. The University has a great student involvement. Greek Life, Sports, Music, Health Care and Theater are great highlights of this University. A new Physician Assistant program is also being implemented.
I love USF. The campus is growing and there are so many activities to get involved. I enjoyed my courses in History, and liked that I could choose the topics that I wanted to study, With more hindsight, I would have placed more time in my math courses, but overall I am so happy I earned my BA at USF!
The program director has been extremely communicative and helpful. She has been willing to fully explain answers to questions I have had during the course of the program. The program is hands-on with a practicum aspect that prepares students for jobs evaluating programs or companies upon graduation. The certificate also counts as a project management degree which also open professional opportunities for my career.
The University of South Florida is different from many schools in Florida because it is not your typical college town. I have been given many opportunities to network, grow and succeed because of this university. I can't wait to continue my graduate education at the same university!
Seeking a bachelor;s degree in Mathematics at the University of South Florida is a little tough. Majority of the people who are math majors are doubling with either physics or engineering and the subject itself is predominantly male. The headquarters where most of the math classes are taken is in one of the oldest and most run-down buildings on campus. The University is very research heavy but mostly in the realm of science and it is very well shown. Recently the math department was without an academic advisor for 5 months. Besides this, the math classes are very rigorous however I believe that the professors are experts in the field in which they teach but are not teachers. A lot of the classes are curved so that students may pass and that is not the definition of a teacher to me. But Go Bulls!
I was very satisfied with my time at University of South Florida. I went to nursing school, so the program would have been rigorous regardless, but I always felt supported and never felt as if I was being neglected. Like all programs, there were some teacher who were not as good as others, but Those classes were still manageable. I had a great clinical site and amazing clinical instructors. During our last semester, they made sure to properly prepare us for our licensure exam and really helped us prepare. I passed the NCLEX the first time!
