Crisis Center Class / African Journalists

Crisis Center Class

USF’s Honors College is offering a class that puts students on the phone with those who desperately need help. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you to the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay and shows you how these students are assisting people with questions on everything from foreclosure to suicide.

African Journalists

Threats of imprisonment, torture, even death…those are just some of the things journalists in Africa face for simply trying to report the news. A group of these reporters and editors recently visited America to find out more about our country, and that included a weeklong trip to the Bay area, where they met with USF St. Pete journalism students. We’ll tag along and see what both sides learned on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM.
