I was able to participate in a wedding here and it was beautiful. It is a Tampa landmark for sure. Always a pleasure to walk along the banks of the Hillsborough River.

I attended an inner city university and there is just no comparison. This campus is beautiful and well maintained. The employees were very friendly even under the stress of move in days.

Easy access to anything downtown, even with walking distance. Beautiful scenery. Watch out for all the crazy drivers. Make sure you stop at the cross walks for pedestrians, cops patrol all the time.

Quite possibly the prettiest campus located in a cities downtown area in America. Located along the Hillsborough River the campus is stunning along with Plant Hall which is the trademark of the campus. Plant Hall is gorgeous and really should be seen at night.
