Stronger Than I Knew / China Architecture
Summing up the greatest struggle of your life and how you overcame it may not be the usual subject matter for a five minute YouTube video, but USF students are doing just that—all with the hope of helping out classmates who might be facing a similar issue. It’s part of the USF Counseling Center’s “Stronger Than I Knew” program, which we introduce you to on University Beat on WUSF TV.
Architecture students from USF and a university in China are bonding--over building! You'll meet some of the students on this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM, where they'll talk about what they're learning about sustainable building in developed and undeveloped areas of both countries.
Lani Steffens, a Mental Health Promotion Specialist at the USF Counseling Center, talks about what she hopes the students who shot the “Stronger Than I Knew” videos and the students who view them get out of the experience.
Lani Steffens says putting the “Stronger Than I Knew” videos on YouTube is what makes the program so strong and unique.
