Recent University Beat episodes
Going Green Expo (May 19, 2008)
Green isn't just one of USF's school colors, it's also the direction the university is taking with the signing of the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment. President Judy Genshaft (right) signed the agreement at the recent "Going Green Tampa Bay Expo," where Bay area businesses and residents got a chance to learn about the newest energy saving ideas and devices. University Beat takes you to the Expo and tells you more about USF's commitment to become more "sustain-a-Bull."
Impact Sight (May 12, 2008)
The Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and a meteor crashing into a building...they're all parts of "Impact Sight," an art exhibition taking place on USF's Tampa campus through May 24. University Beat speaks to artist Cameron Gainer and takes you to the Contemporary Art Museum, the Botanical Gardens and any other surprising locations where the unexpected is making an appearance.
Estonian President (May 5, 2008)
USF's College of Business recently received a visit from Estonian President Toomas Ilves.

Lost in Translation (April 21, 2008)
A USF professor and the three hundred students in his General Genetics class have put a 21st century spin on a 1970s Stanford University-produced educational film with their remake, "Lost in Translation." University Beat takes you on the set and behind the scenes of this fun, yet informative, look at protein synthesis.
Spring Swing (April 14, 2008)
The Tampa Bay Rays experience their most successful spring training ever - and not just on the field, as they teamed up with the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center at USF for "Spring Swing." Volunteers from Moffitt and its affiliates conducted almost seven hundred screenings for skin cancer outside Rays' games around the state, which may end up saving over one hundred lives. University Beat takes you out to the ballgame for the story.
