  • Dear Students,

    WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA ST. PETERSBURG!

    We are excited to have you join our community and hope that this

    will be a year of exciting opportunities and memorable experiences.

    There are many great activities and events planned for you during

    the Week of Welcome. These events are designed for you to learn more

    about USFSP and encourage you to get involved throughout this year,

    and throughout your career, at USFSP. This week you will be able to meet

    student leaders at the Student Government Luau, learn about available

    resources during Commuter Dine and Dash, and attend various

    entertainment events such as Casino Night and the Main Sail Comedy

    Show.

    One of the primary goals of the Department of Student Life &

    Engagement is for you to have an enjoyable and meaningful experience

    outside of the classroom. We hope that this week will allow you to

    connect with other USFSP students, learn about the many ways to get

    involved in the campus and local community, and get

    excited about your future at USFSP. Our staff is ready to

    meet you and assist in getting your USFSP experience

    started. We are thrilled you are here and wish you much

    success this year!
