Swings Tampa Bay / Intelligence Careers
A pair of USF St. Petersburg students are making a trying to make a difference in their community, simply by putting swings up all over the Bay area. University Beat on WUSF TV introduces you to the two young men behind “Swings Tampa Bay” and shows you how their idea is helping bring people together.
They won’t be earning a license to kill, but students interested in a career in intelligence analysis—the pain-staking, detail-oriented work that spies do—will soon be able to turn to USF. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 introduces us to the director of the new program and a USF student who might now be able to follow in his parents’ footsteps.
“Swings Tampa Bay” co-creators, USF St. Petersburg seniors Hunter Payne and Reuben Pressman, talk about the very first swings they hung outside the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts, why the idea has been so popular, some of the weirdest places they’ve hung swings, what the response has been from USF St. Petersburg, what’s next for the project, and how YOU can get involved in “Swings Tampa Bay.”
