New and Noteworthy for the week ahead
Friday/ 8 p.m./ Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center/ $42, $52, $77
While the American Elvis may be dead (oh, face it, he’s not on an island with Jim Morisson and Tupac), the British Elvis is alive and kicking, and charging almost 80 bucks for it. The Brit, whose music influenced the ’70s new wave scene, will visit Tampa for one night only. Rumor has it he only plays songs from his newest album. So old fans may be disappointed, but if you’re too young to remember his original vinyls, you may be in for treat. A very, very expensive treat.
Sur Mes Levres (Read My Lips)
Tuesday/ 9 p.m./ Campus View East (4th floor of the Marshall Center)
This French film (yes, that means subtitles, but after all, aren’t we college students?) graced a Tampa art house early last year but didn’t get the praise it deserved. Done in a Hitchcockian manner, the story follows a nearly deaf woman who reads lips (clever, ain’t it?). When she hires an ex-convict as her assistant, things can only get better.
Family Pet Expo
Saturday and Sunday/ The Pinellas Expo Center/ $6
This all-inclusive pet show will feature friendly little critters for show and for adoption. The Expo will be divided into six zones, including Love My Pet (a section with food supplies and grooming items), Pets and Kids and Adoption Central. The show will also include a Pet Adopt-a-Thon and an exotic cat breeds show. Also for the price of admission: crying children, mullets and barking dogs. What more could you want?
USF gives it away in Memphis 34-33
At the half, a 14-point lead meant USF was on track to win its first conference game in over a calendar year. That energy was kept up even with under five minutes to go when the Bulls were up 33-20. Then USF watched as its lead went from comfortable, to slim, to nonexistent in the […]
Club teams missing competition, friendship due to COVID-19
Under normal circumstances, Grant Nolder, president of the USF flag football team would be preparing for the club’s biggest competition of the year, the Swamp Bowl. The annual tournament, hosted at UF, typically takes place during the fall semester and features some of the best club flag football teams in the country. Winners of the […]
Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
First SG scholarship rewards student leaders
Student Government (SG) launched the first-of-its-kind, merit-based scholarship to students Nov. 5 on USF’s Tampa campus. As a part of Student Body President Britney Deas and Student Body Vice President Travis McCloskey’s platform, Bull S.H.I.F.T., — Success, Health, Innovation, Finance and Tradition — the SG’s Student Leadership Scholarship consists of two merit-based scholarships which will […]
On-campus Jabil institute sparks anticipation from students

Senior Vice President of Advancement and CEO of the USF Foundation Joel Momberg and Jabil CEO Mark Mondello jotted the idea down […]
