My name is Adriel, I'm from Brazil. I want to study at an University in the US, and I'm interested in University of South Florida. It has the major I want, it's affordable for my family with the scolarships, and watching videos on USF Youtube Channel, was like: Wow, this is the place I wanna be! I'm already feeling like a Bulls fan haha!
Anyway, I'd like to know about the city of Tampa, where the University is located. I watched some videos, read some comments and reviews, it seems like a nice place. What's living there like? And about the weather in Florida, people say it's hot and humid. Is this good, or bad?

Well, the area directly surrounding USF is not the greatest. Would you be living on campus or have your own apartment? If you were to have your own place, New Tampa is a nice area that is close to the school. I lived in New Tampa and I could get to USF in like 10-15 mins depending on traffic. There are also "student" apartments off campus. Anyone can live there really, but it's geared more towards students because it's individual leases and leases tend to run August-August. I lived at one when I went to USF - Boardwalk at Morris Bridge. I had no problems there, and all my roommates were really nice too!!

Hot/humid is really a personal preference. In the summer, yes it is rough. However, after a while you get used to it, because it's the same every single day.

Good luck!
