"I think the first thing one notices when attending USF is a sense of community. Professors are truly interested in every student's learning, which translates into a program that includes rigor and caring. Small class sizes—check, knowledgeable professors—check, a learning environment that promotes global thinking—check. In my opinion, USF has it all!."
