  • What Students Are Saying...

    USF101 helped me meet a few of my great friends so far in college, and I couldn't be more grateful. I loved the small, fun class I was in, and the community that resulted from it. I enjoyed having a place to ask questions and learn about the college experience, with others in the same situation.

    USF101 helped me understand my true values, academically and personally, so that I can use them while working through my education here at USF.

    USF 101 taught me about career goals, building relationships, responsibility, personal values, student opportunities, academic goals and personal goals too. I learned about all the necessary and essential things for me to set my goals as a freshman till my senior year, such as the Four Year Plan. It helped me greatly during my transition to my college.

    I liked having a space where I can just reflect and focus on myself instead of focusing on academics.

    I liked how this class taught about life and how do go through it. It wasn't like a normal course where teachers give you lectures; this course focused on engaging the students and let them think on their own.
