    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a very hard course. Professor Thomas knows exactly what he is stalking about and very detailed in all the information he gives us. There is a bulk load of homework that is due every week which is so detailed that it sometimes can be very stressful however, I left the class having a little understanding about the Earth and how it works.

    Course highlights:

    The professer drilled so much information in to our heads that I learned many things in this course. The first thing I learned is that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old. I was also taught how the Earth goes through erosion and how the Earth looks the way it is today. The most fascinating information that I was interested in was the one about New Orleans and how Geology affected it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    From day one make sure you make friends. That way the Homework will get done on time. Study together because trying to do it alone will take to long. The Homework has to much specific details in it. The most important advice I can give about this course is to make sure to watch all his videos before the homework is given to have at least a understand what is going to be on the homework. Dont wait until the last minute to watch the videos because you will surely fail.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In the case where it is cold here, everyone wears jeans and hoodies. Many girls where the pink or purple USF hoodies and the guys wear green or purple hoodies. There are many international students here, especially Asians.

    Course highlights:

    Most of the student population has a boyfriend or girlfriend. I rarely hear about any fights going on here. Mostly everyone here has an IPhone to keep in touch with everyone else.University of South Florida has many restaurants on campus and four dining halls to choose from.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The food is pretty good but it is hard to eat healthy with the food variety. Some restaurants include: Burger King, Moe's, Subway, Jamba Juice, and Boar's Head where you can use your dining dollars to pay.The dining halls have different times.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Generally, the professors are great and the class sizes are great for getting to know your professor. However, due to the push for diversity, there are some professors who are hard to understand due to their accents, which is a major downside.

    Course highlights:

    At the University of South Florida, I have had so many beautiful experiences, the best education and as a Nigerian student, I have not had any trouble with the American students and I have loved the experiences so far.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I feel forever grateful to have been accepted and now attend such an amazing school like the University of South Florida. I just completed my Freshman year and so far I've been able to take classes that have been a great benefit to my interests and aspirations.
