First and foremost is education, second would have to be the diversity of the people around you. And lastly it would have to be the value of students.

The top 3 reasons someone should attend the University of South Florida are: 1. The great education, 2. The clubs and organizations, and 3. the great opportunities beyond the school. USF has some of the top educators and are well known for their medical work and business education. USF also has a wide variety of clubs and organizations that one can get involved in to really feel part of the school and meet new people. And the last reason, and possibly the most important, is the great opportunities around the USF area. Since USF is located so close to downtown Tampa, there are so many job opportunities available for students after they graduate. Some of the best hospitals and medical facilities are actually on the USF campus, and downtown Tampa offers many great jobs for a wide range of majors/degrees.

  1. Location. It is centrally located in Tampa, Florida. Tampa is a great place to live and has a lot available in terms of student education in the medical field. There are hospitals everywhere and a lot of very good ones that specialize in specific disease states.
  2. Huge University that, though young, has had a lot of success in every way. Research is extremely central to most all science programs and USF is nationally recognized for those endeavors. They offer a broad variety of degrees for any area of interest and have many student resources that help to equip students in achieving those goals.
  3. I am a veteran and USF has a very large veteran population. USF has a lot of VA support on campus for educational assistance, scholarships, tutoring and eventual employment.

1) The campus is alive. At USF, you don't feel as if you are simply drudging through an already established system that has no room for change; if you see a problem with the college, you can be an integral part of changing, fixing, or recreating the system. I say that USF is almost alive, adapting to the needs of the students. 2) The students are real. No matter where you hail from, at USF everyone is honest and open. The culture that has been created is one that is for open-debate, conversation, sparking ideas. The students voice their mindsets, not in some pre-recorded way, but, with passion and hope for the future. 3) The area is phenomenal! Do you want the feeling of an urban, hustle-bustle, or, do you want the open, sprawling vibes of the countryside? You don't have to choose here! There are absolutely mindblowing restaurants, coffee shops, and nightclubs all throughout Tampa and Ybor! Then, on the flip side, you have the beautiful campus and the absolutely stunning beaches within a short driving distance. The area isn't a phenomenal college student town, it's a town that college students think is phenomenal.

The gorgeous campus itself is one of the reasons I chose USF. However, being such a large campus means there is never nothing to do and being able to give us so many free events to attend. The final reason is easy access to anything you could possibly want. The bullrunner takes you all over Temple Terrace and if it somehow doesn't take you where you want to go we get free access to the HART bus system which can take you all over Tampa.

USF is a college and when making your college selection your education should be the number one factor. Does USF have your major and is it the kind of learning environment you're looking for? The environment is a second factor. Are you comfortable with attending such a big school? Is the weather something you can tolerate (do you like the beach)? And lastly, how much time you are willing to spend outside and transportation. The campus is quite big and the buildings can be very spread out, if you're not wiling to do some walking/biking/boarding then it may not be the place for you.

1.) It is easily accessible. Located in Tampa, Florida, it is very easy to commute to USF no matter if you live on or off campus. 2.) Amazing staff. Every teacher I have had at USF has been friendly and passionate. I walk away from every class, confident that I have learned a great deal from the content and teacher. 3.) We have great resources. With a 7-story library and multiple computer labs, it is rare that you won't find what you're looking for at USF. They even have free apps like Photoshop that you can use at home!

It is actually so hard to list just top reasons to attend USF. Everyone will have their difference of opinions on what the top 3 actually are. I actually use to be against going to USF because it was so close to home. As I have grown up I have actually found that that is one of the top reasons I am glad to be attending this university. Whenever I get homesick, or what to participate in a family function, I am just a short drive away. Even for people that are attending USF not from the area, that may be farther away from family, the fellow students at USF will become your family so you won't ever feel too far from home. Now let's talk about school spirit, it is everywhere. When I say that I don't just mean posters, and flyers, I mean it is within the students. Bulls stick together. The amount of school spirit takes away the feeling of just being at school and makes it more relaxed and enjoyable. Plus, attending the main campus students are so close to so many attractions. Most are even within walking distance. So the main campus has the comfort of a home while being away from a home and not being in a dreadful school environment.

First reason to attend USF is location! Tampa, Florida gives you the best weather in the country and is close enough to popular tourist cities such as Miami and Orlando if you want to go to theme parks or famous beaches. Tampa is a growing city with a small town good manners. Everyone is friendly and enjoy community activities so if you are coming from another state you will not suffer from lack of friends or loneliness. Second reason to attend USF is its curriculum for the many majors it offers. Classes can be intense but professors are very qualified, most of them have PhD credentials, and always eager to help. USF tutoring center always has availability to help you with homework or before a test. Third reason to become a USF BULL is if you want to be proud of your school. USF is 100% student oriented, it is a research school always propelling students to do their best while supporting healthy activities and relationships. Many alumni send their kids to USF because of such great experience. Believe me, Im a proud Bull!

The top three reasons are simply to get the best education they can find, to create lifelong relationships with fellow students, and to make ever-lasting memories through the many opportunities USF provides. USF is known for its research and health science colleges, so those looking down those career paths should look no further past the University. Along with the academic success, USF is highly focused on creating a safe and fun environment for their students who work hard to be successful. Those here believe in the motto "work hard,play hard." There are so many different events that allow students to network with each other, and create memories from some of the best years of their lives.

Three reasons to attend USF is because of the vast amount of major opportunities they offer. It's okay if you don't know what you would like to major in because you have options. Another reason is the campus isn't too intimidating. Although there are nearly 50,000 students enrolled, it isn't too bad navigating around campus. You wont feel overwhelmed or scared. The University of Central Florida is five miles down the road from my house, but the campus is so large its honestly scary for me. I grew up going to catholic school my whole k-9 life. I had the same students with me all day everyday. That's what made me appreciate close relationships today. The final reason why a student should attend USF is because there is always something to do. You're in Tampa which is an hour and a half from Disney World, Universal, and Sea World. Or you could go right across the street to Busch Gardens. You can stay on campus for on site events or see a concert, go to the beach which is 30 minutes away. All in all a student should pick a school because they feel comfortable there. Nothing is more important that your own happiness, so choose wisely.

I would say the top reason to attend USF is academics. That is usually the reason most people attend college. I also would suggest that if you want a large college experience to attend USF as well.

People should want to attend the University of South Florida (USF) for many reasons. The first would be because you would have an opportunity to talk to all walks of life. At USF, you can meet international students from around the globe. Maybe you have always wanted to travel to a specific country but for some reason you couldn't. You have the next best thing, a student that you can become friends with and learn all about that countries heritage. Another primary reason to attend USF is because it is the number one research facility in the school. The research that gets conducted at the university is beyond imagination. Anyone would be lucky enough to even get a chance to look at the facility, let alone be apart of it. An addition to that, people should also want to go to USF because of the location. Being in Tampa may sound like a traffic annoyance to many, but it becomes "home" quite fast. Most of the people are truly nice and willing to help you out, along with having many activities to do while your in tampa. Within 10 minutes of the school, you can go to Busch Gardens amusement park (which the price is discounted for USF students), paint ball shooting, bowling, skating, movies, shopping, and much more.

The top three reasons that someone should attend USF are for the amazing sense of community, the quality staff and faculty, and the beautiful campus.

USF has a strong connection to the community. It is centrally located in Tampa with easy access to many areas of the state. Plus, you can't beat the weather! As mentioned, they do have a vibrant campus community with activities, clubs and functions to stay engaged. USF has made great strides in the area of research, especially in health care. And just this week the USF College of Nursing's graduate program was ranked 2nd in the state by US News & World Report, further demonstrating their commitment to excellence and in training the next generation to meet the needs of its community! USF is a great choice for anyone considering a large, diverse university, but not too big that you get lost in the shuffle! Go Bulls!

The first reason is because it's set in Tampa, making it a school in a city instead of it being in a college town, like the University of Florida in Gainesville. Secondly, it's a large campus, where diversity is appreciate and it's easy to meet others with all the different outlets and activities. Lastly, there are many programs for students to study in. Science-related majors are the most common, but they have a program for everyone.

The University of South Florida is one of the best schools in Florida. There's always something happening on campus. It's well monitored and safe for all the students and staff. The people are kind and no one feels left out or alone. There's always people there to support you. A bull stands alone, but never far apart from the herd!

The top three reasons for my enrollment are as follows: 1) Degree program. The university is strong in its medical sciences and music programs, two things that I wanted to study intensely. If either program appeals to a student, they might want to consider applying here. 2) Diversity. This university allows for a lot of different ways to express yourself, including clubs, organizations, and events. Plus, the diverse variety of people give a great amount of knowledge and awareness of the world and its cultural diversity. 3) Community. The people here are much closer to each other than other big universities, and aren't afraid of meeting others. The feeling of being lost in a big city is drastically minimized by the general friendliness supported here.
