USF Water - EPA / History Walk

USF Water - EPA

USF recently received a high-profile guest, as Nancy Stoner from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency visited the Patel College of Global Sustainability and a number of labs at the Tampa and Lakeland campuses. University Beat on WUSF TV has more on her visit and what it might mean for future USF research and development efforts.

History Walk

USF History grad students are leading people on a “walk through time” in downtown Tampa every Friday this month. The most recent walk was a window-shopping stroll along Franklin Street, which reached its peak as the center of downtown’s commercial district in the 1950s. Put on your comfortable shoes and join us on our tour on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
