    EXPENSIVE. That would be the one word to describe it. Being a private university, they charge a lot more than other schools do, but they are pretty good at giving financial aid and have a lot of opportunities to help students pay for tuition.

    It is expensive to attend USF. For me, I spend zero dollars to go here because I am a Gates Millennium Scholar and got a few other scholarships. However, invest in your education. Invest in a school that is worth it. USF may be expensive, but tuition is the same for in-state and out-of-state students. And, you really get the most bang for your buck. You get to attend games free, we have a yearly concert that only costs us ten bucks. We have access to a high-quality gym, there are many activities, field trips in some classes, resources there for you, small classes, highly-qualified teachers, a clean and safe campus, and much more.
