University of South Florida

This high-impact, global research university located in beautiful Tampa Bay on Florida's spectacular, sunny west coast is one of the largest public universities in the nation, ranking among the top 50 universities, public or private, for federal research expenditures; it is one of just four Florida public universities classified by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in the top tier of research universities, a rare distinction, indeed. USF offers students over 240 degree programs at the undergraduate, graduate, specialty and doctoral levels, including the doctor of medicine, in a dynamic learning environment inspiring innovation, creativity and collaboration and is a member of the American Athletic Conference, with 17 men's and women's varsity teams competing at the NCAA-level. Tours of this outstanding institution will show prospective students what it's like to be a USF Bull and will provide an up-close-and-personal view of the university’s top-rated academic facilities, a spacious suite-style residence hall, wonderful dining options, student support offices, the high-tech recreation center, and other points of interest. In addition, current USF students afford guests a first-rate peek into “a day in the life.”
