USF has a great atmosphere about it. Unless you go to Cooper Hall lawn during the day. Then you are assualted with so much smoke and other nastiness you can't even breathe. If you go into Education, stay far away from Mr. Lamons. He has screwed up everyone's schedule so far. The football games are tons of fun. Go out and enjoy yourselves, but please support the team! We need fans, not people to just jump on the bandwagon. The only controversy I see are evangelists telling us we are all going to hell. Just don't listen to them, and they will leave you alone. Class sizes are surprisingly not too big. I only have a couple classes with over 100. The teachers are very understanding of this and will help you whenever you need it. You are not just a statistic at USF. Make sure to support the school. You pay the money to go HERE, not FSU or UF. We don't care if you are a fan of them, just don't show it.
My professors make an extra effort to know who the class is and help them on a personable matter. One class, Algebra is a very large class, but twice a week we meet with a TA that can really help us understand and it's such an informal and easy class. I love it. My band director knew who everyone was by the second day. I'm taking Gerontology now. It is very interesting, and a lot of fun. You can take about anything you are interested in, and most likely it will somehow fit into your major.
Students at USF are crazy. They love to support our school and wear the Bull with pride. You have people from all walks of life that come here, so being understanding is super important. Everyone is super nice to each other. Guys hold doors open for me, and everyone says please and thank you. It is such a great atmosphere. You have everything from the jock to the band nerd (me) to the prep in your class. There are no cliques anymore. Everyone is so accepting of each other.
