We visited the University of South Florida, located in North Tampa. The USF mascot is the bull.
I laughed at this mini beach on campus ... when the real thing is about an hour away in Clearwater Beach.
My son is interested in engineering, so we spend time on the science side of the sprawling campus.
The guide asked us what the "sculpture" represented - I replied Mickey Mouse. But my son knew each cluster was water molecules - two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen for H2O.
Phi Mu Alpha is a fraternity for music students ... I just like the cat!
We also visited the AFROTC Detachment 158, where I received my commission many moons ago (after graduating from the University of Tampa). I asked about The Leaky Faucet helmet - it is awarded to the the most improved cadet.
Do you have a favorite school mascot? One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash. Comments are open through Saturday, August 16, 10 pm in Baltimore. I'll post the winner on Sunday, August 17.
