New Students

The New Student Experience is a space at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus that intentionally has programs and initiatives created for first-year, second-year, and transfer students. Each of these experiences provides unique support and transitional support to guide you through your journey.

First-Year Experience

Throughout your first-year at the USF St. Petersburg campus, our office will be offering a variety of programming options that promote student success and help you get holistically setup for success as you navigate the transition to college.

Second-Year Experience

#usfspMORE is what we believe every second-year student should experience! We want you to make the most out of your experience, have MORE fun, and enjoy all the resources available to you.

Transfer Experience

Transfer signature programs provide an opportunity for Transfer students to connect with peers and the USF St. Petersburg campus community. Our signature programs include Transfer Connections, Transfer Peer Coaches, the Transfer Newsletter, and more!

Meet the Peer Coaches

First-Year and Transfer students have individualized Peer Coach teams at their disposal that are here to help them navigate their first year as a Bull. With first hand experience of what it means to transition into USF St Petersburg, they are your go to resource. Meet them here!

Each year, we look for passionate and dedicated undergraduate student leaders to join our team and help transition new students.
