USF Freshman Sara Bennett talks about the organization "First Book," at the USF FYC Social Action Presentation Day
Rhetoric in Action
One USF Composition class has a greater purpose than simply teaching students about writing, as they are encouraged to turn words into deeds. University Beat on WUSF TV takes us to the Social Action Presentation Day, where seventy students showed how they took issues they felt passionate about and put rhetoric in action.
