    The campus is very nice, and it is easy to navigate to classes. They school holds a lot of events, which helps you feel connected with other students. Teachers are only an email away, and are quick to respond to and help srudents!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    If you touch the balls of the Bull statue during finals week it is good luck!!

    Food and Dining

    They have one restaurant on campus, called Johnathon's cafe. Their soup is good! They also have free coffee in student commons. There are a lot of restaurants near campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    Definitely look at rate my professor, because many professors are different for each course, you want to make sure you find the right fit. Partake in the activities at school! You can make new friends, and 90\% of the time there is free food!

    Academic Rigor

    Chemistry was very difficult. The rest of the classes gave a small to decent amount of work, some of it was busy work. Tests aren't too impossible, neither is the course work.

    Campus Safety

    The campus safety program is very effective. They are always willing to help at any time and there are even emergency poles in the parking lot when someone feels threatened at any time.

    They have a great variation of clubs and activities. They have student government, academic honors, special interests clubs. They are always different activities going on, such as workshops and informational sessions for graduate school and testing for graduate schools.

    This is a great type of school for students who enjoy a campus with different activities and events. Also for students who prefer a smaller campus and like the extra help.

    What to do for fun

    Dark Side comics and games has a pretty active group for Magic: the Gathering, if that's what you're into.

    Food and Dining

    I didn't know USF Sarasota had food, actually.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in a dorm, but Sarasota's a very nice place. Bradenton isn't so bad, but there's not much to do.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses aren't too hard, just time consuming. As long as you enjoy what you're taking, you'll be fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you have a plan for your homework. Leaving it up in the air generally leaves you with a big pile of work at the end.

    In three sentences

    USF is a big school, and it has a lot of resources for students. The IT program is completely online, and some of the teachers are pretty good. Overall, I'm happy to be here.
