  • This is a local treasure for the gardener. There's a huge plant sale each spring where you can find unique items - herbs, rare plants, rare fruit trees - whatever you are looking for. Just be sure to ...  more »
  • If you are desperate for something to do, it's better than staying home. There is a lot of potential here, but, not well maintained at all. Below average gardens and plant choices.  more »
  • A small botanical garden with various plants. Honestly, I expected more, as the number of plants and species of plants. But nature lovers will be delighted.

  • Beautiful campus! I'm a photographer in the area and it's one of my favorite locations for picture. I'm sure you can get a great education here, too, but I just use it for picture purposes :)
  • Not the best university - but USF has come a long way. On a purely exterior view - the campus is beautiful. The different programs have their ups and downs - but the school does have a number of opportunities available...I just wish the school was more in touch with the community around them and that Tampa had more pride of one of it's biggest foundations. Least favorite experience was dealing with staff in financial aid and advisers - they treat students like pests instead of being resources for the people who pay the bills for this school to exist.
  • The campus is beautiful but the rooms are absolutely disgusting, tiny and impractical. I didn't even add this dorm to my list but I was stuck here anyway and they refuse to fix the issues. No hot water, the room is 85 degrees, and the Ethernet ports are inactive. I wish I would have never applied to this university.
  • Unfortunately they worry so much about money over students that to them, it is worth the negative review. Apparently they just don't make enough from us, so on top of the outrageous tuition price, they also charge 2.5% for a convenience fee for paying your way to your future. And since they charge that 2.5% "convenience" fee, visa does not allow that, so they will not accept visa; one of THE largest card companies. All for that 2.5% (how convenient). To top it off, the USF bank card that they send funds to is VISA. Now there are good amount of universities, not just USF, that are going along with this trend to squeeze out more money from their students by charging for paying your tuition, however students all over are baffled and enraged at how desperate universities are getting for our last pennies.
  • Awesome school and their campus is ridiculously large. Their medical buildings are super too.
