USF Sarasota-Manatee 40th Anniversary

Like its sibling campus over the bridge in St. Petersburg, USF Sarasota-Manatee is getting in on the anniversary action this year as it marks its 40th birthday. On University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we’ll drop by a ceremony commemorating the milestone. We’ll also learn how the once tiny campus for ‘commuter students’ is transforming itself into a ‘destination school’ for Bay area residents.
