Pier Fish-USFSP / Occupational Health & Safety Institute
When the Saint Petersburg Pier closed in early June, the few hundred residents of the Pier Aquarium had to find new homes…but a good neighbor answered the call. Find out how the USF St. Petersburg Student Center became the new residence for some of those sea creatures on University Beat on WUSF TV.
Some college students use the summer break to recharge their batteries – others use it to think long and hard about their future career plans.
On this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we take a look at a weeklong USF College of Public Health summer program that encouraged students from around the country to ask themselves if the occupational health and safety field is the path for them.
