<p>I have a choice between the two. My major is English with focus on Creative Writing.</p>

<p>I toured both schools (and I'm a Florida native from Tallahassee) walked around both campuses, etc.</p>

<p>Here is my concussions good and bad for both. </p>

Good- Nice campus, very on its own and away from the metro area, yet just a 10 min drive up the highway to downtown. HUGE shopping center with every store you can imagine not even a 5 min drive away.</p>

<p>All the staff I connected with while there wear very nice. The 2nd biggest student union in the state (UF is #1 only because they extended theirs by a foot) A very nice new (and to be the biggest in a FL university) gym being built currently and to be open in the fall. UNF has VERY BIG emphasis on smaller class sizes. </p>

<p>Bad- Some of the buildings reminded me of my community college, just a personal thing as I'm trying to get as far away as I can from that vibe/commuter school vibe. </p>

<p>Campus is a bit spread out. I felt like I would need a car in order to commute around the campus. </p>

<p>My visit was on a Friday and the campus seemed dead. From what I've gathered its one of those univisities that kind of shuts down on Fridays.</p>


<p>Good- Campus was large, but pretty much everywhere was within walking distance to each other, 15 min at the most. Allot of the buildings had a 'baby boomer' architecture feel to it. The newer atrium union center was impressive. Reminded me Universal studios theme park, lol.</p>

<p>Spirit was good, even students our tour crossed paths with (out and about) seemed full of "Go Bulls!" pride.</p>

<p>In general the Tampa area if great, love the people and events that happen there. The people of Tampa as a whole felt just more relaxed (must be the sea air), while Orlando (I grew up there basically) is more grunge feeling. Tampa was listed as one of the fastest rebounding cities last year.</p>

<p>Bad- Some of the buildings seemed older and not as nice in comparison to UNF, such as the fitness center. Some features felt more limited; like the on-campus dining. In comparison the cost of living on USF campus is more expensive then UNF.</p>

<p>What does anyone else think? anyone done time on either of these campuses?</p>

<p>Er, are you comparing USF against UCF or UNF? </p>

<p>“anyone done time on either of these campuses?”
No, hopefully I won’t have to find out about the secret basement prisons at USF.</p>

<p>^Ahh thanks for pointing out that type-o. Easy to accidentally put the wrong one and quickly over look it. Doing time there is simply spending time there, that does not reflect prison. Now if i said anyone ever done time in the central florida state prison, I think that would be a more appropriate response. Thanks again.</p>

<p>…I still can’t tell if he meant UNF or UCF. lol</p>

<p>@tampacutie: Same.</p>

<p>@TylerL, yes, that was supposed to be taking humorously.</p>

<p>The form wont let me make any edits after a few hours. Darn board. Thanks for you replies anyway.</p>

<p>Thanks for clearing things up Tyler. I bet you’ll end up being a mystery or suspense writer!</p>

<p>Tyler, you must be comparing UNF to USF in your comments because you mention the other school building a new gym, which UNF indeed is doing right now while USF and UCF’s rec centers are several years old. The UNF rec center to be looks pretty cool; USF just spent millions renovating and adding on to its rec center…the USF rec center looks sorta plain from the outside, but it is state of the art inside with all the latest equipment and appointments. </p>

<p>UNF has a nice student union building that opened in 2009, a year after USF opened its new student union: The Marshall Center. USF’s student union is about 230,000 square feet; UNF’s student union is about 180,000 square feet–about 2 acres smaller than USF’s!</p>

<p>Ahh, thats what the tour guide said anyway, about the student union dynamics on UNF. In my opinion, USF was just more impressive as far as the dynamics of the campus goes.</p>

<p>UNF is smaller as a whole, thus no need for the larger buildings I guess. Although they have very newer looking ones.</p>
