Recent University Beat episodes
X-Labs (March 22, 2009)
This week's University Beat pays a visit to "X-Labs," a USF student-run group that builds interest in math and science through practical, hands-on experiments, like a weather balloon that soars almost 20 miles above the earth.
Campus MovieFest (March 15, 2009)
This week's University Beat focuses in on the Campus MovieFest, where USF students are given a week to produce a five-minute film - and their creativity has to be seen to be believed!
Colorectal Cancer (March 8, 2009)
The Moffitt Cancer Center has marked March being National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month by bringing in the "Super Colon." This week's University Beat takes you to the exhibit, which is used to encourage people to get screened for this deadly disease.
Women in Crisis Series (March 2, 2009)
This week's University Beat shows you what movies can teach us about trauma, as USF scholars team up with area clinicians to look at movies like "Maria Full of Grace," "Notes on a Scandal," and "Eve's Bayou" during the film series, "Women in Crisis."
Business Case Competition (February 23, 2009)
It's probably one of the toughest parts of an executive's job - that last minute project with the imminent deadline. This week's University Beat takes you to a contest where USF MBA students are put into that situation when they have twenty-four hours to solve a problem - in an industry they're not that familiar with.
Bobby and the Chimps (February 16, 2009)
The latest production of the University of South Florida's School of Theatre and Dance examines the place where love, faith and politics meet and meld in modern-day America. This week's University Beat brings the spotlight up on "Bobby and the Chimps," a new work by award-winning British playwright James Phillips that's being premiered at USF.
