TAMPA, Fla. (July 20, 2011) – The creative community that makes the University of South Florida unique now has a place in the blogosphere to call its own.


USF has launched its first-ever Tumblr site, titled “USF Life.” The site showcases campus life and student works through creative mediums, allowing contributors and followers to build a public showcase that will capture and share both individual points-of-view and works that encompass the essence of the USF community.


The blog will feature many of the traditional sights and scenes that USF Bulls have come to know and love, like the Marshall Student Center, MLK Plaza, and the Botanical Gardens. What’s more, “USF Life” will feature the hidden gems of the university that aren’t as widely known.


Followers will be updated daily with content that spans the artistic spectrum, including music, dance and theatre performances; cutting-edge architecture; images from the intersection of art and science and student-made imagery, fashion, food and written expression.


Beyond that, people outside of the USF community can submit USF-related content, such as pictures of the public art on campus or a USF-themed drawing.


Do you have USF-related content that you would like to share on the USF Tumblr? Send them in! Content can be submitted here, on the USF Life Tumblr site where visitors will find guidelines for submitting content.


Content can also be emailed to USF Communications and Marketing’s Jenna Withrow. All emailed Tumblr submissions should use the subject line “USF Tumblr Submission.” When emailing content, please include the following information: content creator name and title (i.e. student, professor), description of content (i.e. what it is, location) purpose of creation (i.e. class project, work, personal), and your affiliation with USF.
