A guide to USF’s weekend activities

When it comes to the University of South Florida (USF), there are an endless amount of activities that can be done. However, on the weekends, when campus seems to be a bit bare, it can be difficult to find activities to participate in.

I started my day of finding USF students by wondering the campus. At first, I was nervous I wasn’t going to find anyone, since I seemed to be the only student walking on campus. Then I came across two girls carving pumpkins. It was a beautiful day outside, so they thought that was the perfect opportunity to complete this activity.

After that, I made my way in the direction of the Marshall Student Center. There, I came across of a group of girls in the sorority Kappa Delta. They were taking turns having their picture taken with the statue of the bull. Everyone should get a picture with the bull before they graduate. Their chance came to do this on a weekend when the campus was empty.

Heading away from the main campus, making my way to some off campus areas where students would be, I noticed the beauty of the campus. When you’re rushing to class it is hard to appreciate all the real beauty USF has to offer.

I knew a spot students went in their free time was the USF Riverfront Park. I was introduced to the girl in the canoe from one of my best friends here at USF. She agreed to let me tag along with her in the canoe to snap a few shots.

Finally, I started to head home when I saw another activity students could do. They could ride bikes for pure joy, rather than just as a form of transportation.

Overall, USF may seem to be an empty campus on the weekends but that is not true. It takes a little searching to find students because instead of spending most of their time on campus, they are completing activities they wouldn’t normally have time for.

The photos above showcase some of these activities to offer an insight to other students at USF looking for fun things to do on the weekends.
