Accounting Graduation Dance / Smoking Cessation Booklets
Probably the last place you expect to see students break into a flash mob style dance number is in the middle of the USF School of Accountancy Graduation Reception, but that’s exactly what happened at the recent ceremony. University Beat was there, and you’ll see exactly what happened on this week’s report on WUSF-TV/DT. Also: Can a simple pamphlet help someone quit smoking? Do some pamphlets do a better job than others at getting people to stay away from cigarettes? That’s what the Moffitt Cancer Center is trying to find out, and they’ve received an almost 3 million dollar grant to conduct a study that needs two-thousand volunteers. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM has the story.
The subject of the upcoming July 13, 7:30 PM meeting is "Orchids of Florida", presented by Don "Woody" Wood. Don, a past president of the Orchid Society of West Pasco, is a land surveyor who got interested in orchids in 1978 and has been working with them ever since.
