USF Health Smoke-Free / University Film & Video Association
From Rocky the Bull stomping out a giant cigarette to high school students finding out what they might look like twenty years from now if they smoked, USF Health rolled out all the stops at a recent event formally banning smoking on its part of the Tampa campus. This week’s University Beat on WUSF-TV has more on the decision and how it came about. Also: While USF doesn’t have a film school, it has about one hundred students in the “University Film and Video Association.” That group is now raising money so some of them can go to the Sundance Film Festival next month. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM takes a look at the future Fellini’s.

Listening to Our Past (Rebroadcast)
Meet a man who joined the circus as a teen, another who was part of Tampa’s first day of integrated dining in the 1960s, and a woman whose family went to meetings and picnics in Ybor City supporting the Spanish Republic during that country’s civil war. This week on Florida Matters, we’ll visit with the past through excerpts of oral histories from the Bay area. And we’ll talk about why these recordings -- and ones that you can make with your family -- matter.
