"The campus is gorgeous. The teachers were generally friendly and didn't waste much time. There are a lot of clubs and activities constantly happening, so it's hard to be bored. There isn't any Greek life. It's a pretty small campus compared to most universities."

"The University of South Florida St. Pete campus is great. The people who work in the office to help students succeed are wonderful and so is the faculty. The teachers are great at understanding when a family difficulty comes along and most professors will be flexible with your work and help you when you need it if you are a student that actually does your work and shows up on time. The campus cops help out a lot too with making students feel protected. Overall, the campus is well put together."

"The pros are the interactions and engagements we have the opportunity to be a part of. We are able to not only get the textbook education but are encouraged to take part in research experience in the professor's labs, or even get clinical experience from a health care professional to really help facilitate the educative resources. The cons would be that there is only a research focus for this Graduate program at USFSP. I think it would be more beneficial to have the program focus on both aspects, clinical and research, to have a more well-rounded and comprehensive approach to the field of psychology."

"I love USF. Many students take for granted what USF has to offer. I thought the school wasnt for me and transferred to a smaller school more north. Biggest mistake, i never realized how many activities USF offered and how great the university truly was. School spirit is great, there are MANY intramurals and clubs to join, and there is always something to do or people to meet at USF. The campus is very nice and you live in Tampa, one of the most awesome cities! I am going back to USF next year because I miss it so much. People who write bad reviews are probably the close minded people who dont make any effort to join clubs and expect people to come knocking on their door asking to be best friends. This really is a great school, do no take it for granted."

"The pros of my graduate program are the size of the classes. The classes are smaller so it is easier to interact with the professor. Also, the professors are very knowledgeable and accessible, they are always willing to help you and work with your schedule. Also the program offers on campus and online classes, which is a good combination and gives us more flexibility. The cons of the graduate program is that the classes every semester are very few and one class that is required is only offered in the fall, which makes it hard to create your class schedule because you have to be mindful that some classes that you need are only offered once a year."

"This is a wonderful program with excellent professors for those who, like myself, plan on pursuing a Ph.D. I feel very prepared for the world of academia thanks to the rigorous research and writing component of the MLA program, and I was able to focus my studies in the area of Political Science, making me more competitive to post-grad programs - I will already be qualified to teach at the university level. This will help me when applying to nationally ranked fully-funded Ph.D. programs, and I am very excited about that!"

"This is a very rigorous program that expects you to apply your knowledge from you classes into your own classroom teaching. I have learned and grown as an educator through this program and I plan to continue on to completion."

"The MBA program at USFSP is very convenient as I work and have family in the area. They offer night and online classes to accommodate working students. They also offer various opportunities to travel abroad adding more value to the MBA experience. The campus is beautiful as it has a very relaxed and peaceful scenery while offering many outdoor activities. I feel that the area of Financial Aid for graduate students should be focused on more. It would be great if more scholarships, grants and fellowships were offered to graduate students in need. Overall, it is a great program that allows working students to succeed as well as provides assistance in current and future careers."

"The professors are very approachable and helpful. The university system leaves a lot to be desired - very heavy beaurocracy!"

"It really feels like a private school, yet you'll be paying for a public education. All the staff have all been courteous and helpful, which is hard to find in larger universities. I haven't finished yet, but so far, so good. After much research, I'm really glad I picked USF St. Pete."
