Someone wrote:

Finally this university semester finished. Every university semester with different students and classes, always bring me many new experiences.

I feel while "this semester" sounds fluent, "this university semester" or "Every university semester" doesn't sound fluent! I don't know why! Maybe it is too long and complete to be used after "this". Anyway, I want to know is there any nuances about using "this" that can be applied here?

In the last phrase I prefer "new experiences" than "many new experiences". I feel "many" is extra, but again don't know why!

You can say like this :

Finally the semester at the university is finished ( or, has ended ). Every such semester with different students and classes, always brings me a couple of new experiences.

Using university semester in every sentences makes the sentence sound monotonous.

Yes, "many" can be used for a large number of experiences, but if you don't think you gather that much experiences, you can use a couple of instead of many.

Considering your sentence, I would say you might want to use this only because the semester denotes a particular semester, that is different from the previous ones. So, if you don't want to add any specific detail about it, I would say you can remove it:

Finally the semester is finished (or has ended). Every semester with different students and classes, always brings me new experiences.
