Most people don’t realize it, but for nearly all of its almost forty year history, USF Sarasota-Manatee has been an “upper division transfer university,” meaning it only accepted juniors, seniors and master’s students.
That’s all changed this year, as the school has welcomed its first class of freshmen. We’ll meet some of these newest Bulls, and tell you how their addition fits into the evolution of USF Sarasota-Manatee on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
