Finals-Stress Relief / Students with Diabetes Conference

Finals - Stress Relief

USF has some secret weapons for students battling the stress of final exams: dogs, ice cream, and a miniature stallion in sneakers. University Beat on WUSF TV looks at Wellness USF’s “Save Your Sanity, Save Your Grades!” initiative.

Students with Diabetes Conference

For most students, starting college is a big enough challenge. But for some young people, the transition is made even more difficult by the fact that they’re diabetic. “Student with Diabetes” is an organization that started at USF Health and has since spread to over 30 other college campuses, with the goal of creating a support community for 18 to 30 year olds and their loved ones.
USF is hosting the group’s third annual National Conference at the end of this month. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 gets a preview from Students with Diabetes’ creator, Miss America 1999, USF graduate Nicole Johnson.
