We visited the following in Florida... UF, FSU, UCF, Rollins, Florida Southern. University of Tampa and USF are in our back yard and we have friends that work, teach and attend them. My D's best friend goes to UT for Biology, he chose over Eckerd feels it is a strong program. UT is more Urban, crime is a possible issue. Friend was heading college of business and he moved to FL Southern to Dean the MBA program. Each school is very different in personality. What is your son looking for in a school other than weather.
