Interestingly vast ways of experiences to success.
Tips: Take the SAT and score high to get good scholarships. Naviation is necessary, so make sure you know how to read maps. Don't rely on wheels. Walking is often necessary, as buses get full quite quickly during common class hours. Mostly early morning. I am overall very satisfied and I am a proud USF Bull. You can use the public bus for free using your student ID. And the card is very powerful, and holds vital information. Usf students get discounts almost everywhere. People are very friendly. And you will definitely find your country's people here. Join your country club and you will stay more involved. Monitor on Instagram. Talk to current students from your country before coming and know about everything possible.
Likes (Safety): Police are always on campus. The safety team ensures students can reach home safely at night. Travelling safely through the Tampa campus can easily be done for free. The campus is totally safe. Even if it is 3 o'clock at night. I walk home alone every night and nothing bad ever happened. The bus is available till midnight excluding weekends.
Dislikes (Part time work): The on campus jobs are rare, but that does not mean jobs are not available. Applying at the correct place at the correct time with a proper resume can get you a job on campus. And off-campus is a risk to work. Managing work and studies is going to be a challenge. Maximum is 20 hours a week, most students end up with 10-13 maximum. Rarely people can do 16 hours. Job quality differs salary. But the minimum is 11 bucks per hour.

Best university for value for money.
Tips: Always ensure to have compatible roommates as it plays a key role in boosting your adaptation to new cultures and places. Participating in college events to network with students from different cultures. Part-time work can be easily acquired as almost all the buildings have dining services.
Likes (Public transportation): Bull runner is free throughout the year and frequency is increased over time. Transportation is not an issue as campus ID card also allows students to roam around the city for free. Also, the university does provide with Uber coupons to students on a monthly basis to be used in case of any emergency.
Dislikes (Internships): The hunt for internship is entirely on the student's efforts. They do help with LinkedIn profile beautifications and resume reviews. They also did conduct only 1 career fair due to covid restrictions. Be keen to look out for opportunities for lab positions as it gives you hands-on experience with the industry associated technologies.

Academics are good but a bit stressful
Tips: Be prepared that you need to spend a lot of time for the assignments and quizzes and need to submit those on time without delay. Academics will be a bit hard but it will be easier if we spend quality time in preparing for the examinations and assignments.

Great university with appropriate facilities and great academic standards.
Tips: The university has great infrastructure and great job opportunities, such that rarely people join in consultancies to get jobs. The college has many fun activities every Wednesday and it provides free bus facility to all the students. Moreover, it has recently entered the list of top 100 colleges in the United States. The expenditure on accommodation and food is comparatively low. The great thing about the college is that it has low fee structure as it is public funded.
Likes (Public transportation): There are free buses provided by the college which operate from 7 am to 11 pm, which is quite appreciable. Free public facility is provided so one can travel anywhere and explore without the fear of money shortage. Usually in other universities one has to take cab for everything.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): Personally, I would say that the climate is quite harsh for permanent settlement. The summer is quite harsh so it is difficult to roam outside and this is the only reason why permanent settlement is difficult but immigration is quite easy.

Afforadable Tier-1 college
Tips: Part time wage pay is 10$/hr and also we need to get 75% above in every subject to qualify for the subject or else we need to rewrite the subject exam again. Some of the departments don't offer any specialization so before you come enquire about it from respective graduate professors which are mentioned on the website.
Likes (Public transportation): Everyplace you go it is free with the university of south Florida Tampa student ID card. Up to 15 miles we have university buses and above 15 miles to 25 miles we have state buses which are also free for the students. So basically we don't spend a single penny on transportation.
Dislikes (Internships): Due to a large number of students both national and international students, we have a large competition for internships. Yet our college provides campus placements in which we need to register and participate and also students need to try applying from websites like handshake and linkdin.
