More than 3,000 USF students to join in Stampede of Service
USF’s largest community service day will be bigger than ever.
The Fourth annual Stampede of Service (SOS) will have 3,800 student volunteers, according to Letha James, student coordinator for SOS. It’s the first time registration for the event was closed.
This year, SOS, sponsored by USF’s Graduate and Professional Council, has over 1,000 more student participants than last year’s 2,600, according to the Center for Civic Engagement and Leadership’s Web site.
“I’m shocked and sad that we had to turn away people this year,” James said. “I’m happy, though, that we have so many people registered.”
SOS will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Participants will meet at the Marshall Student Center before heading out to various assigned areas within the community for volunteer work.
“Students will be visiting everything from recreational parks all over Tampa to Shriners Hospital for Children … Children with disabilities get to ride horses and we also go to senior citizen homes,” James said.
She also said that unregistered students cannot participate in SOS but individuals are encouraged to look at other USF volunteer programs.
For more information, students can contact the Center for Civic Engagement and Leadership at 813-974-5053.

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 […]
