Why I Chose USF
I fell in love with the campus, environment, people, and everything USF has to offer! Since I was unsure about what my major would be, I liked that USF offered so many options. Also, I loved the location and all the events USF has on and off campus. I knew I would be able to get involved especially because they had a Women’s Club Lacrosse team!
Life Outside the Classroom
When I’m not hitting the books, I love to go to the Campus Recreation Center and take fitness classes or rent French DVDs from the library.
Favorite Off-Campus Spot
My favorite spot off campus is the Muvico Starlight 20 because I love going to the movies, and this theatre has an arcade. It doesn’t get better than that! Plus students get discount tickets; just don’t forget your student ID.
Advice for Incoming Students
Don’t be nervous or worried about how college might be. There are hundreds of students going through the same thing! Once you meet them, and trust me you will, it’ll be less stressful than you thought it would be. Make the most of your college experience every day, because before you know it, you’ll be graduating!
