High school jr. Gabe Sardui & sr. Alyssa Long perform at the USF School of Music Rock & Roll Summer Camp
Educators are turning to unusual ways to get young people interested in school music programs once again. One way is by ‘modernizing’ programs through the use of computers as well as popular music, like rock and roll. University Beat on WUSF TV shows you how USF’s School of Music Education tried this method out with a pair of summer camps that gave middle and high school students the chance to write and perform music, as well as shoot their own music videos.

Design of Madeira Beach 9-11 Memorial
An 800 pound steel beam from the wreckage of New York City’s World Trade Center provided the impetus for the city of Madeira Beach to build a memorial to the victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, and a pair of USF graduate students provided the design. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you to the planned site of the memorial and introduces you to the two young men whose eye-catching plan hopes to inform visitors about this tragic day, while inspiring them at the same time.

While the importance of global business and knowledge grows, so does the cost of international travel, something that college students find especially daunting. University of South Florida President Judy Genshaft recognizes that difficulty, so she and her husband, Steven Greenbaum, are creating a one million dollar endowment for all USF students who want to study abroad. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 looks at the “Passport Scholars Fund.”
