The University of South Florida (USF) was founded in 1956 and is located in Tampa, Florida. It also has a stand-alone campus in St. Petersburg, and branch campuses in Sarasota and Lakeland. USF is ranked as the 5th largest public university in the state of Florida. It has been noted as one of the top centers for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s research.
The South Florida Bulls compete in NCAA Division I. USF is a member of the Big East Conference, and has been since 2005. The university currently sponsors varsity sports and a wide variety of club sports. Their mascot is Rocky D. Bull. The USF Bulls excel in the classroom with 162 student-athletes named to the 2011-12 Big East All-Academic Team.
A few notable alumni who attended USF are Hulk Hogan, Days of Our Lives star Drake Hogestyn, top fashion model Lauren Hutton, and former major league manager Tony LaRussa.
There are many attractions in the Tampa Bay area that students can avail themselves of. Some of these options are to explore the Tampa Bay beaches, go to the Lowry Park Zoo, go and see Tampa’s Latin quarter known as Ybor City, or go and visit the Florida Aquarium, Big Cat Rescue and Busch Gardens. Some of the top employers in the Tampa Bay area are Publix Super Markets, BayCare Health Care Systems, Walmart and Verizon Communications.
As an international university, and a wide range of opportunities both in the city and elsewhere, students will often find themselves in the market for affordable and convenient self storage. There are an abundance of self storage units available close to USF. Students can find gated self storage facilities that offer 24 hour access that provide direct drive up to the storage unit. A typical 5’X5′ storage unit can be found near 33620 in the range of $28 to $56. You could also think about getting a bigger unit and sharing the space and costs with a friend, but a 5’X5′ will definitely hold the contents of a typical dorm room.
