You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

University of South Florida

Yesterday brought me to another university! I have had no shortages of seeing different universities, but I still crave more. Jason works at the University of South Florida in the theatre department. Yesterday he had the wonderful pleasure of handing out finals to his class! That’s one thing I don’t really miss. My tour started out seeing the costume shop and the building shop. I think I want to hang out in the costume shop all day and take some funny photos of different outfits.
To cap my experience at the USF theatre department I was able to watch a student-directed show. The show focused on exploring the poetry of National Poety Laureate Ted Kooser. Ted Kooser was also in the small crowd sitting right in front of me. Perhaps some inspiration traveled my way to do all this writing today. The play was very well done and a great exploration and dramatization of the written word. I have now seen drama performances from high school students in Hawaii, college students in Florida, and Les Miserables on Broadway.
After exploring campus some and seeing the Marshal Center, Jason put me in touch with Deana, a masters student about to graduate with a masters in public relations. I think she was secretly trying to persuade me to attend graduate school at USF. Graduate school is becoming a bigger though again. So we discussed the programs at USF and related them to our lives.
While chatting with Deana I met an senior in advertising, a kid named Ben. Ben was great! I learned all about the advertising department at USF and it’s backing by Zimmerman. I think I’ve got a future in advertising and Ben does too. Ben, thanks for the tour of campus! And I’ll let you know when I’m on my European tour.
As a side note… the University of South Florida is interesting. It’s new, only 50 years of history, yet it’s one of the biggest universities in the country. Everything about it seems modern. So it was very different from seeing other schools such as the University of Mississippi.
