          • Testimony
            2014-2016, The bulls experience!

            I started USF Spring 2014 as an international Student and my first day of class on the huge campus was overwhelming, but that was when I had my first bulls experience. I remember I was looking for my class room and worried I would be late, I guess I may have looked lost because someone immediately asked if I was ok and not only directed me to my class but walked with me there. This was one of the great days I've experienced at USF Tampa. One of my favorite spots were the library, this is where I built lifetime friends and studied, . I am proud to call myself a "Bull" and look forward to helping others on and off campus.
