TEMPLE TERRACE, Fla. (March 27, 2014) – The City of Temple Terrace will salute the University of South Florida during the inaugural “USF Day” on April 1.

The event is the City’s way of recognizing and celebrating the longtime partnership and friendship between the University of South Florida and Temple Terrace. A presentation of a proclamation will be held at the Temple Terrace City Council meeting beginning at 6 p.m. The USF flag will fly over City Hall, 11250 N 56th St.

Temple Terrace often has been called USF’s unofficial “hometown” because so many students, professors and university staff make this community their home.

USF is a high-impact, global research university located just five minutes from Temple Terrace, putting it within easy walking, bicycling and commuting distance. The university and the City have long partnered on issues of common interest and importance, such as economic development, transportation, architecture and the arts.

At the council meeting, Mayor Frank Chillura will present a proclamation to USF President Judy Genshaft declaring USF Day in Temple Terrace. Rocky the Bull, the USF Sun Dolls, cheerleaders and university dignitaries will be on hand. USF students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to show their support for this important partnership.
