NEW CAMPUS-WIDE SPEED LIMIT – 25 MPH

Drive25We are pleased to announce that effective October, 2013
a more uniform, consistent speed limit is being implemented on the USF Tampa Campus. The new campus-wide speed limit is 25 mph unless otherwise posted. New signage has been installed to reflect the new speed limit. Exceptions to the new speed limit exist at four locations:

Bull Run in the area of the elementary school will be 20 mph during transitional school times – drop offs and pick up times. This will be controlled by flashing beacons as is the case elsewhere in the country. All other times, Bull Run will be the standard 25 mph.

Banyan Circle, Health Drive, and Birch Drive will be 15 mph at all times because of the unique multi-use functions in those areas servings as service drives, parking areas, and roadways.

CELEBRATING THE PINK WARRIORS IN OUR LIVES

PinkTurnout for our first two Pink Friday events was terrific! Friday, October 4th, we celebrated by "Wearing Pink" and on October 11th, we gathered for "Planting Pink." Today, October 18th, we will be "Serving Pink."

Please continue to wear pink during the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Nearly 1 in every 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. Promoting awareness to women through early detection is essential in the fight against breast cancer.

To view photos from the first two events, click on the following links: Wearing Pink and Planting Pink.

Details about our last Pink Friday event on October 25th will be sent out early next week. We hope to see you there!

STAY PREPARED - IT'S STILL HURRICANE SEASON!

StormAlthough this year's hurricane season has been relatively quiet compared to the number of storms forecasted for the six-month period which began June 1 and ends November 30, it's important that everyone stay prepared! At this time of the year, tropical storms have been known to develop quickly in the Gulf of Mexico and in the Caribbean, making it even more important for you to have supplies and a plan in place.

Hurricane hazards come in many forms, including storm surge, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, high winds, tornadoes, and rip currents. It is important that your hurricane preparedness plan addresses all of these hazards. The National Weather Service is responsible for protecting life and property through issuance of timely
watches and warnings, but it is essential that everyone be ready before a storm approaches. Your individual preparedness actions greatly contribute to USF's ability to prepare, respond to and recover from any storm, regardless of its intensity.

Download the Tropical Cyclone Preparedness Guide (PDF) or follow the links above for more information. But remember, this is only a guide. The first and most important thing anyone should do when facing a hurricane threat is to use common sense. To learn more about how you can prepare and minimize your risk during the 2013 hurricane season,
visit USF's Emergency Management website. Be prepared and be safe!
