BE STREET SMART

At USF, the safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is our priority. More than 40,000 students, 12,000 faculty and staff, as well as many visitors are going to class, work, and visiting for events on the USF Tampa Campus. They walk, drive cars, ride bicycles, use skateboards and golf carts to travel around the campus. It is important that everyone respects their fellow Bulls and acts in a predictable, safe manner.

 

The USF Street Smart Program was developed by University Police and Environmental Health & Safety to help inform and bring attention to the importance of safety on and around our roadways. Please take a minute to review the video and additional information on this website to help keep you and the rest of the USF community safe.

 

Representatives from University Police and Environmental Health & Safety will be providing more information about safety on campus at the Bull Market on Wednesday, March 20th. We hope you will stop by!

 

 

kickballTHERE'S STILL TIME TO SIGN UP

The Faculty and Staff Kickball Event is being held at Magnolia Fields on Saturday, April 6th, and there's still time to pull together your team and sign up for the fun. Kickball team registration information can be found at this website.

 

Kickball games will begin at 9 a.m., and the day will include food, entertainment and kids' activities throughout the event.

"RIDE THE WAVE" CHALLENGE

Administrative Services has accepted the 2012-2013 Faculty & Staff Campaign "Ride the Wave" Challenge which runs through March 29th. There is still time to participate in this year's annual fund campaign and every contribution, no matter how large or small, makes a huge impact.

 

If you've already given, "thank you!" If you haven't yet done so, please consider participating in the Faculty & Staff Campaign. To make a gift online or download a paper form, visit this website. Please see your supervisor if you need assistance with printing a
paper form.

 

surfAs in past years, the results of the Challenge will be celebrated with a fun event. The "Ride the Wave" Challenge event will take place Monday, April 15, from 10-11 a.m., on the south side of the Marshall Student Center (in the courtyard area near SVC).

 

Whether we win or lose the Challenge, all Administrative Services employees are invited to attend the event. Those employees who have contributed to the campaign will also have the opportunity to "Ride the Wave."

 

We'll be posting more event information in the next few weeks. Mark your calendar as you won't want to miss the fun!

TIGHTENED WATER USE RESTRICTIONS

The Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) has issued a Phase III Water Shortage declaration restricting irrigation to once weekly. This restriction is a result of drier than normal conditions across the Tampa Bay area. The City of Tampa has been asked to do its part in reducing water consumption and eliminating unnecessary and wasteful water use.

 

Tightened water use restrictions for the City of Tampa went into effect Wednesday, March 13th. Tampa residents and businesses using City system water, well or surface water may irrigate one day a week, following a published schedule. The USF Tampa Campus will adhere to the watering restrictions put into place by SWFWMD and the City of Tampa.

 

For more information about the City of Tampa Water Use Restrictions, read this article posted on Inside USF.
