Blue Ocean Comes to USFSP

students cleanupThe Blue Ocean Film Festival comes to St. Petersburg November 3-9 — an exciting event for our city and for USFSP. To kick off the event, USFSP will participate in a Blue Ocean Beach Cleanup on Sunday, November 2.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs is partnering with several community groups to make the cleanup possible. Students, faculty and staff volunteers will begin organized beach cleanup at 8:00 a.m. from the following three locations: Coquina Club, Coffeepot Bayou and Salt Creek. Each group will be provided with trash pickers and bags, kayaks and canoes, and they will pick up trash as they work their way back to campus. “This is a great way for our students to take part in a significant event for St. Petersburg,” said Dr. Julie Wong, regional associate vice chancellor of Student Affairs.

Additionally, USFSP will host the “Sea Level Rise Symposium” on Monday, November  3. For a complete schedule of Blue Ocean events, check the official website.
