Academic Rigor
The liberal arts education pushed here at USF helps me to create a strong foundation for my future learning! All the faculty are open and willing to help you succeed!
Am enjoying being here
I love it here. It's very small, but the atmosphere is phenomenal. The teachers actually care about your well-being, are interested in your life, and want to be of as much help as possible. The campus also offers many fun clubs and organizations to be involved in.
Bang for the buck
The price is up there, but it's worth it. USF has a great atmosphere for loving your educational experience!
Tips for prospective students
Make sure to get as involved as possible! There are so many opportunities out there. Just be open-minded and take a chance or five!
Great for these types of students
Anyone who wants to be a person, rather than just a number will love it here. USF makes you feel right at home and really encourages its students to grow in their time here.

It has a diverse population of students and faculty. The environment is very welcoming and hospitality orientated. Also, the college offers many programs and clubs to get you involved around campus.
Academic Rigor
The academics here are not the rigorous. The class sizes are very small which are a good thing. You get a chance to connect with your professor on a one on one level.
Dorm Life
The dorm life is very fun and entertaining. You have different lounge areas which include ping pong, billiards, and televisions to watch your favorite shows on.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria/dining area is welcoming to campus students or commuters. The food is good and they even have some nutritious eatables also. The cafeteria staff does a great job preparing the food and making sure everything is clean and tidy.
What to do for fun
The things I do for fun is playing ping pong or pool with fellow students. They have various flat screen TV's in lounge areas so, I sometime occupy myself by relaxing in the lounge areas. The Rec Center is also for most part always open so I have the option of going to play basketball, workout etc.
