The Undergraduate Experience

In the College of Arts and Sciences you'll get the liberal arts education that can change the world — and that will sustain you for life.

Land Three Internships

Use USF’s career resources to land internships that inspire you (aim for at least three). Explore different interests before you graduate. Then find a job that you love.

I can tell you right now that many of the opportunities I have had come from relationships I made while I was in college! You won’t connect with everyone you meet on a super deep level, but sometimes if you’re lucky, one percent of the relationships you make now will generate many fruits down the line. It’s about genuinely being able and willing to help people and fill empty gaps."
