Bridge to Success / Indino

Bridge to Success

USF St. Petersburg students and teachers are working closely with youngsters and teachers from Fairmount Park Elementary School in using hands-on science learning to help them build a ‘bridge to success.’ On University Beat, you can see some of the highlights from a summer camp that might convince the youngsters higher education may indeed be in their future.


Barely a year out of college, Luis Batista took a huge chance by quitting his job at a Tampa financial firm to follow a dream. The USF alum is getting close to the realization of his goal, with the launch of “Indino” (pronounced “in da know”), a new smartphone app that helps students set up and organize a calendar of events from a variety of sources. We’ll talk with Luis on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
