Description

Walk around the main campus square, MLK Plaza, at University of South Florida and you find yourself in an oasis of trees. Rows of canary palms, a long pergola, a huge rectangular fountain, and dozens more large trees all combine to create a beautiful space. All these trees and their shade must be much appreciated during the many hot months of the year. The student center is here, and you can sit by the huge windows and eat a meal. It can get super congested in the food court at lunchtime so opt for Einstein Bros Bagels instead. The bookstore is large and well-stocked with interesting items so it's fun for a visit. USF is an incredibly diverse campus with people from all different cultures and religions. There is a mix of older and more modern buildings. Once you leave campus, the surroundings are sketchy-looking and there is quite a lot of traffic.
The campus is a 22 minute drive from Curtis Hixon Park, a gorgeous waterfront area in downtown Tampa.
