We encourage students to continue participation in USF student organizations and student government and support the use of video-teleconferencing to facilitate participation in these groups. A wide variety of USF student interest groups and organizations are available for participation.

Please contact Lerren Bradley-Tyler, at ltyler@usf.edu with questions related to student organizations.
