Engineering Expo / Business Woman - Reachout

Engineering Expo

USF brought the world of 'STEM' - science, technology, engineering and math - to life at the 41st Annual Engineering Expo. University Beat on WUSF TV was among the over 20-thousand people who attended the two-day Expo and took in some of the nearly 100 different interactive exhibits.

Business Woman - Reachout

USF’s College of Business recently hosted members of the “Committee of 200,” an organization made up of some of the leading women in business. Their daylong visit was designed to ‘reach out’ to female business students and give them advice on how to succeed in the corporate world. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 dropped in on the visit, and also introduces you to some of the USF students the Committee honored with scholarships.
