University Beat takes you to Polk County for a "Poly Pep Rally" and also brings you an update on the plan for a brand-new campus, right in the middle of Florida's High-Tech Corridor.

This week, we revisit portions of two shows we produced earlier this year that ring true now more than ever. We'll hear how three area managers operate during a budget crisis.

Florence Foster began her appointment as a Hillsborough circuit court judge in 1990. After more than a decade on the bench, Foster was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a disease that interferes with nerve pathways and causes muscle weakness and loss of coordination. After being forced to step down in 2003 due to her disease, Florence started a support group for women with MS where she met Renda Gander-Agnew. Both Renda and Florence discuss the difficulties of the disease and the stress that it places on their families.
