Conveniently located in Tampa, Florida, this top-tier state university attracts students for whom “price, diversity, and opportunities” are as important as a location that’s “close to home.” The University of South Florida “is all about community.” One student says, “It was close to home, offered the degree that I wanted, offered me the most financial aid, and had many ties to the community and surrounding areas culturally and academically.” USF may be huge, but this “does not affect the level of personal attention that students receive.” Many here laud the honors program: “Classes are almost always discussion-based.” In general, professors here “really want you to succeed.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
