    Okay, SCF has a way better cafeteria! It is accessible and has lots to do. I enjoy how the facilities are (almost all) in walking distance.

    The campus is nice and professors are what you would expect. USF is a great school and is a great place to start out especially for a bachelor's degree. They are well rounded and offer almost any degree you can think of. Its obviously not the best school out there but its a really good contender and offers just as many opportunities as UF and FSU I'm a returning student and vet, and I am very happy I ended up at USFSM. Tuition is reasonable too. ...Continue reading

    I love my USF. There are plenty of spots to connect to WiFi to study outside. As a transfer student I don't participate in many social events but there are many to choose from.

    Campus is pretty. As compared to FSU, UF, and UCF, the location is way better. There's a ton to do in/around campus and you'll never get bored. The people here are (relatively) nice. Definitely a great university when it comes to research and volunteering, since Moffit is right on campus. Overall, I'm glad I came here. ...Continue reading

    The campus is beautiful, the people are nice, and the classes are informative. The opportunities for business majors, amongst others, are endless. Everyone goes to Florida and FSU so it's a nice pace of change. I will admit that the north side of campus is not the best area but if you use common sense you'll be fine. You can have just as much fun here as anywhere. ...Continue reading

    This school is really good for a commuting school. Definitely recommend being a part of STEM Academy which is an awesome program offered to Freshman that allows you to move in early, network, and learn about medschool and research. You are only stuck in traffic if you use Dale Mabry or other main roads. I live about 40 min away and I use back roads and get to school on time each day. ...Continue reading

    My first choice. Small class sizes. This university is growing and growing every year. So that means that student life is getting better too! Lots of ways to get involved.

    Love the school, and love being involved. As both a commuter and transfer student, I can say scheduling is not in favor of you verses those who live on campus.

    It's a commuter school. It's a nice school and I think they care more about the students than other schools do. It is difficult to find help and answers most of the time. Do not ever expect to talk to someone on the phone because it is nearly impossible along with making appointments to speak with someone in person. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 1/5
    Location is terrible, big businesses all around campus causing traffic and accidents everyday on the drive in. They make registration and graduation nearly impossible. It is not easy to succeed here, even if you do everything correctly and to the best of your abilities. I have been to many colleges and this is the worst. Doesn't present a strong college experience. Teachers are all still learning and have a hard time teaching their students so then we fail. I transferred here my junior year and regret it. ...Continue reading

    It's pretty fun and classes are challenging plenty of clubs available. It's so well landscaped and I feel safe here. The area around is sketchy, so beware.

    if you can live off campus do it. I like how they're always making improvements to the area and they really do take student feedback into consideration. Sometimes working with administration can be a pain but that's any college. Parking isn't terrible either. Despite USF being in a sketchy area there's always something to do. .= when we do, we go super hard... except now alot of friends are dropping out or moving, so now it sucks. . I wish I wouldve attended FSU. ...Continue reading

    Absolutely love it here. In a sketchy part of town, but the campus is pretty safe thanks to the police presence. Food options are fairly decent, but get repetitive fast if you eat on campus every day. Parking is very tough unless you have an early morning or late afternoon class. ...Continue reading

    This is a great a school for commuters and those who are going home on the weekends. There are a lot of students and classes are alway over packed for that reason.

    This campus is stunning there are so many open spaces, parks, and facilities to keep any student entertained and satisfied with the atmosphere! Big campus, lots of trees, great buildings, great professors but not so great TAs. Lots of opportunities for scholarships and funding and research. Social life is there if you want it. Pre-med students are the humongous majority on campus. Food at the dinning locations repeat every week, and you might hate it after a month. ...Continue reading

    The surrounding area has had many problems regarding safety during my time here at USF. But the city around it is kind of sketchy.

    Social scene kinda sucks, good school though with lost of great opportunities for any student. If you're someone who cares about that kind of thing, keep looking. Safety: The area around USF is sketchy, but USF itself is a safe campus. Professors: The professors I've had have been wonderful. Food: Too expensive. Make your own By looking around you can tell that everyone is a dedicated and successful student but they keep to themselves. Its hard to make friends if you are not involved in greek life. I do not regret my decision for enrolling in USF because of the quality of education I am receiving ...Continue reading

    I like most of my professors and the school is almost always offering free food to students for some event that is going on, but Jonathan's Cafe (only place on campus to get food) is a real disappointment. Crappy, overpriced food served by generally rude people. The campus is pretty, small, and has study areas throughout. Kind of loud at times. ...Continue reading

    USF is really an amazing school. Academically better than FSU and on-par with UF.

    This campus is stunning there are so many open spaces, parks, and facilities to keep any student entertained and satisfied with the atmosphere! Big campus, lots of trees, great buildings, great professors but not so great TAs. Lots of opportunities for scholarships and funding and research. Social life is there if you want it. Pre-med students are the humongous majority on campus. Food at the dinning locations repeat every week, and you might hate it after a month. ...Continue reading

    The surrounding area has had many problems regarding safety during my time here at USF. But the city around it is kind of sketchy. If you want to live here comfortably make sure you can depend on your car to take you to the grocery store, mall, etc.. unless you don't mind taking the city bus (scary). ...Continue reading

    I'm sure it's not the best university, but I like it here. Close to home and lots of other things. The only reason I have some low ratings is because of my personal thoughts of school in general. Great place. Come here if you want. ...Continue reading

    Social scene kinda sucks, good school though with lost of great opportunities for any student. If you're someone who cares about that kind of thing, keep looking. Safety: The area around USF is sketchy, but USF itself is a safe campus. Professors: The professors I've had have been wonderful. Food: Too expensive. Make your own By looking around you can tell that everyone is a dedicated and successful student but they keep to themselves. Its hard to make friends if you are not involved in greek life. I do not regret my decision for enrolling in USF because of the quality of education I am receiving ...Continue reading

    I like most of my professors and the school is almost always offering free food to students for some event that is going on, but Jonathan's Cafe (only place on campus to get food) is a real disappointment. Crappy, overpriced food served by generally rude people. The campus is pretty, small, and has study areas throughout. Kind of loud at times. ...Continue reading

    USF is really an amazing school. Academically better than FSU and on-par with UF. Only downsides are 1) that the surrounding area is a ghetto (though Tampa itself is nearby), e.g. the notorious Fletcher WalMart.... you must never go there, Simba, and 2) that its a commuter school. ...Continue reading

    Not too far away from some pretty scetchy parts of Tampa, but the campus is beautiful and definitely safe. Everyone knows everyone. Growing slowly, but the right way. Love it here! There are better schools out there but USF has plenty of opportunities for everything if you try. ...Continue reading

    LOVE USF GO BULLS!!! I think the best one in Florida hands down. Only labs are taught by TA's. Most professors are nice,extremely smart, and willing to help. There is always something going on and a club for just about everything. I think I have had a better college experience/job opps. so far than my other(UF,UCF etc)engineer friends. Excellent educators. GO BULLS ...Continue reading

    Pinsky never uses canvas. He created his own website that is extremely difficult to navigate. There is a paper due almost ever class ranging from 1-6 pages. He loves to hear himself talk and it isn't always clear how what he's speaking about relates to what he's supposed to be teaching. If you take him, good luck. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Probably one of my favorite classes at USF. Dr. Cass kept it interesting every single class, and this course was seriously an Easy A. She does assign reading before every class, but other than that, there wasn't much to the class. The class revolved around guest speakers. I highly recommend this class!! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Dr. Cass does a great job at keeping it interesting. Dr. Cass was one of the best professors I have taken at USF. She absolutely does care about her students, and about people, period. Take her course(s) if you can. You have quizzes twice a week. If you have a question she will get back with you quick. Make sure you read the book, take notes from the guest speakers and please study the quizzes because the information is on the exams. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    Overall, I did well in his class but was forced to do so much unnecessary and pointless work. He asks you to light homework which is actually just full, many-page papers. His lectures can be boring. He has you use two books that are mostly useless. I never really read either book. I got an A on every paper, but somehow managed to only get a B. If you have to take this class take him, just be prepared. ...Continue reading

    I was super prepared for the rest of my upper-level psychology courses thanks to this man. Of all my classes this semester his is my favorite. Pay attention in his class and you will do fine. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    If you do not keep up with assigned readings you will not be well prepared for the type of intellectual discussions and examples that he provides in lectures to facilitate learning. He is extremely knowledgeable so expanding on the readings via handouts (outlines) instead of lecturing from a power point or reading the text verbatim can be expected. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Professor Masagutova was very thorough when explaining topics, No need for the textbook unless you want extra practice problems. Majority of the class was on MyMathLab. The lectures gave a overview of the topic and the homework went in depth, but in the Smart Lab you have tutors all around you to help! Great professor! She cares about her students If you pay attention to the notes, homework and quizzes, then you should be able to get a good grade in the class. She provides a lot of opportunities to get a good grade. I got a 100 on the first test. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    Very nice man, who is very passionate about the subject. It is extremely difficult to understand him. He is a nice man, however, it is not easy to go to class when you cant understand a word being said. The class is easy, yet sometimes unbearable. ...Continue reading

    Ambe Njoh has a very thick accent and he refuses to use a microphone. However, he is very vague about his assignments. I never fully understand what he wants me to do. However, I've gotten As on everything. Textbook is necessary for the assignments and exams. I never pay attention in class, I just read what's needed for the assignment. All in all, an easy class ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    She is good and answers any questions asked and goes back over problems in class, but I learn the most through the homework in the smart lab. She drops 4 of the lowest homeworks and quizzes and also one test so it's not that difficult to get an A. She'll call you out if you're not paying attention so watch out! Spent a lot of time in the SmartLab, which also helped with concepts that were hard to grasp. Don't buy the textbook. Would recommend for PrecalcTrig. ...Continue reading

    PSYC2012 was a challenging online course. He is very hard to reach and get ahold of and the same goes for his TA's. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    He is an arbitrary grader. He also talks ALOT, when you read the reviews on loves to hear his own voice its very true. Advice, take professional writing or a different professor. If you don't then my next advice is ask him specifically for what he is looking for on the paper assigned. There were massive amounts of reading and several huge papers. He had his funny moments, but overall this class was one of the hardest and worst classes I've had to take. ...Continue reading

    Dr. Cass class was very interested loved all of the guest speakers. 40% got an A and another 30% for B+. She offers a lot of extra credit and freebie credits, including attendance, research participation, easy quiz. The 100 points out of 400 were like freebies + 20 extra credits. Easy and interesting class ...Continue reading

    Dr. Masagutova was a very good professor for my MAC1147 class. You must show up for the lectures if you generally have trouble understanding math, because her explanations of the concepts will most likely be what helps you pass this course with flying colors. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    This was one of the best classes I've ever taken. She offers great study strategies and there should be no surprises. There is a 22 page syllabus for this course...you should be able to find 99% of your answers here. If you have issues...it's more than likely YOU. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    If you pay attention, you'll pass. She explains everything and details and takes questions from homework. She drops homework and quiz grades so that there's no way you'll fail. Overall, she was a great teacher. ...Continue reading

    She has a heavy Russian accent and can be difficult to understand. The class is pretty much self taught. She calls people out in class for talking to each other or not sitting up straight. Clickers are infrequent. ...Continue reading

    I hate social studies professors. They're extremely pretentious about their profound work in the sciences. Enthusiasm is annoying. This was an intro course for psychology I ended up investing more of my time watching his boring lectures than I did studying for my Advanced Macroeconomics exam. Don't do yourself a disservice, avoid this class. ...Continue reading

    Overall precalc is a simple class because you can learn it all through mylabs plus. I had her for Pre-Calc and although she has an accent, she gives plenty of in-class examples. She was very reasonable when it came to due dates for assignments as well. She usually asked 1-2 clicker questions towards the end of class. If you take Pre-Calculus, sign up for Masagutova's class! does her best to be as clear as possible and has easy clicker questions. Most of the learning is done by yourself in the smartlab, where there are plenty of resources to help you be successful. She was a little unorganized with the due dates. Don't buy the textbook as the online version is included with mathlabplus ...Continue reading

    I have never seen a professor less interested in a class.

Just seems lazy ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    You don't have to show up to class because he posts all of the lecture notes online but he does give good examples in class that aren't on the lectures and most of the days he has an iClicker quiz at the end of class where it counts as extra credit. This class is definitely no a level 2000 class, but regardless it was fun :) The exams have his lectures, quizzes, and the book material in it, so be prepared to study. He's extremely knowledgeable about the topics covered and explains in great detail. I worked harder in this class than I did in higher level courses, but it made the A more satisfying. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    This class was a tough one. You NEED the textbook, because the test is based off both lectures and text. However, he does offer 24 extra credit points and is very caring. He really does try to make arrangement with students if you need more help. You do have to put in the effort for this class though. there are 3 exams and a cumulative final. ...Continue reading

    Thick accent, difficult to understand, but other than that she's willing to answer questions if you've got them. Always willing to help,making sure we understand. If you didnt take this in highschool it can be difficult to understand her because of her thick accent and teaching methods. Everything is basically online. 4 quizzes, homeworks,and clckr questions are dropped. Do the pretest, practice tests,& samples and the tests are easy. ...Continue reading

    I am currently taking this class and I would recommend taking financial modeling prior to this course since every class so far has been excel based. Also keep all of your notes and homework assignments from advanced corp. finance cause you will work some of the same problems in his assigned homework. 30% of your grade depends on group projects. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Once you get over her accent, attending class is not bad and she does have some good shortcuts to understand math better. She gave clear instructions on passing the class. While smartlab work can be annoying, it is the choice of the math department and not herself. She was also very helpful and understanding during difficult times. She was also always available after class and during office hours for help. However Masagutova often gave examples that didn't appear in the homework but did appear in the exams so I appreciated that. Only a few clicker questions. Understandable accent. She didn't always mention when HW + quizzes were due so watch out for that ...Continue reading
