Applicants be aware that USF is in Tampa, which is not what most people usually think of when they think of "South Florida" Tampa is on the Central Gulf Coast. Heaven knows why they chose the confusing name, but out-of-staters be aware: Tampa is part of the infamous "I-4" corridor of political conservatism running through the state. Like anywhere else, it has its counter-culture, but you should know where you're applying to: REAL South Florida MFAs (Miami area) include UM, FIU, and FAU.

It's called the University of South Florida because it's the state university in that region. It has sister universities in the University of North Florida (Jacksonville) and the Univerity of Central Florida (Orlando). The name isn't actually misleading; Tampa is considered part of South Florida, even if it isn't generally marketed that way.

The University of South Florida has had that **confusing** name since 1956. Try finding a beach as world-class as those west of USF in those **REAL** South Florida locations around Miami. Good luck! Both Fort De Soto and Caladesi are within 20 miles of USF Tampa and much closer to USF's St. Pete campus and both were ranked #1 by Dr. Beach as the best in the whole country--including beating out the Atlantic coast and Hawaii.

Although USF is in the so-called "infamous" conservative areas, USF & its students are truly diverse in politics & cultures. The campus is near both Riverfront Park & Lettuce Lake Park & really not that far from beaches, art museums, Ybor City, and so forth. For example, Busch Gardens is visible from USF library windows! Those who don't mind a drive can also easily drive to New Orleans or Key West for spring break without spending their entire break driving. Better still, if you're a creative writer, the English Department is chaired by a poet.
