USF Sarasota-Manatee Freshmen
For the first time in its almost forty year history, undergraduate freshmen will be attending University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you to an event welcoming the newest members of the Bulls family.
Most people don’t realize it, but for nearly all of its almost forty year history, USF Sarasota-Manatee has been an “upper division transfer university,” meaning it only accepted juniors, seniors and master’s students.
That’s all changed this year, as the school has welcomed its first class of freshmen. We’ll meet some of these newest Bulls, and tell you how their addition fits into the evolution of USF Sarasota-Manatee on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
USF Sarasota-Manatee Regional Chancellor Dr. Arthur Guilford says adding a freshman class is the latest step in the university's evolution. He also discusses the "Pillars of Intellectual Engagement" that the university is now basing its general education curriculum on.
