“Astonishing and disappointing”: Students on Lack of Study Spaces
10/16/2020 10:12am

By Cait Korsak With the temperature, and the number of Covid cases on the rise, off-campus students at The University of Tampa are in a desperate search for air conditioned places to study on campus. Hannah Rhea, a sophomore marketing major at UT, lives 1.4 miles west of campus and describes the absence of places to study as astonishing and disappointing. Students shouldnt be struggling to find places to study at any given university, said Rhea. In addition to the lack of areas to study on campus, off-campus resources such as public libraries have been temporarily shut down to guests because of COVID-19 restrictions. Between the six different public libraries that lie within three miles of The University of Tampas campus, five of them are closed and the one library that remains open is still a 16 minute walk from campus. Tampa Hillsborough County Public Library, the sole remaining public library that is open, does not have indoor seating and is strictly available for curbside pickup. Without having the ability to retreat to an air conditioned building to study on or off campus, that leaves the question of where students can go to study. Jakob Bernheisel, a freshman finance major, ...

UT Cancels Spring Break to Minimize Pandemic
10/16/2020 10:08am

By Isabella Troia To eliminate a possible COVID-19 breakout, The University of Tampas administration decided to restructure the upcoming Spring 2020 semester to be continuous from Tuesday, Jan. 19 to Thursday, May 6 with no week long spring break. On Thursday, Oct. 1, a global email was sent to the entire UT community informing them of the cancellation of a full spring break week and it being replaced by scheduled non-instructional reading days once a month throughout the semester. This announcement was met with backlash from most of the student body, as spring break is known to college students as a time to let loose after seven grueling weeks of classes. The administration believes that eliminating a full week-long break will diminish threats of virus transmission involved with traveling and partying that is typical of the average college students spring break. The university has scheduled one day each month, Tuesday, Feb. 23 Wednesday, March 10 Friday, April 30 and Friday, May 7 where there will be no classes. The administration said, We believe these days will provide a periodic break from classes while negating the threat of the virus. While the pull of bars and clubs is strong, the vitality ...

Lightning Celebrations Trigger Rise in UT Cases
10/16/2020 10:04am

By Juliana Walter The University of Tampas COVID-19 numbers rose by 76 cases after hundreds of students and locals gathered without masks in Henry B. Plant Park just a week before. For the first time since the novel COVID-19 virus, huge crowds of people without masks flooded downtown Tampa. To celebrate the Tampa Bay Lightnings recent Stanley Cup victory, players and staff paraded up the Hillsborough River in boats. The boat parade began at Marjorie Park Marina and ended at the Cass Street bridge. Due to Florida Gov. Ron De Santis, lifting all masks and gathering restrictions, the thousands of unmasked observers in downtown were completely legal. Stephanie Russell Krebs, vice president of Student Affairs and dean of students at UT, confirmed that despite the governors reopening order, nothing in the Spartan Shield, UTs health safety initiative, had been modified. But the university expected the rise in case numbers due to the transition back to more normal life following De Santis orders. We are anticipating an uptick in cases this week and attribute this uptick to general complacency regarding personal health and safety, especially off campus at bars, clubs and restaurants, house parties and city-wide events, said Krebs. As ...

Trump’s Health and his Involvement in COVID-19
10/16/2020 10:01am

By Renesia Mills In recent weeks, the White House has seen several positive COVID-19 cases that have impacted President Donald Trump and other government officials. According to an ABC News report, 34 White House officials have been infected with COVID-19. It just seems like total chaos, said William Myers, assistant professor of political science at The University of Tampa. Theyve just been living in some kind of fantasyland and now the bubble has popped and no one knows what to do. A week after testing positive for the coronavirus disease, the White House physician, Sean Conley, cleared Donald Trump to resume in-person events. The second presidential debate was set to take place in-person on Thursday, Oct. 15, but due to concerns that Trump might still be contagious around that time, the Commission on Presidential Debates CPD announced that the debate would be held virtually. Trump refused to participate in a virtual debate, and the debate has been cancelled. In regard to the state of Trumps health, the White House has not yet disclosed if Trump has returned a negative COVID-19 test since being released from the hospital, so whether or not Trump is still contagious is undetermined. From what other ...

2020 Fall Festivities that Haven’t Been Canceled
10/16/2020 9:57am

By Lisa Striffolino The Heights Fall Festival, Riverwalk Halloween Hunt, and the Wesley Chapel Fall Festival are few of the many Autumn activities thriving around Tampa this season, all while complying with COVID-19 guidelines. Julia Stewart, marketing events manager at Armature Works, expressed that the Heights Fall Festival will be scaled down this year in light of the virus. There will not be any high contact touch points such as bouncy houses, a kids crafts corner, or other shared community activities as there have been in years past. The safety of our staff and guests is important to us, Stewart said. We encourage guests to wear masks and socially distance. We are fortunate to have a very large property with plenty of outdoor spaces to utilize. Still, there will be other activities and treats at the Armature Works festival for all to enjoy, such as pumpkin picking, live folk music, fresh kettle corn, Oktoberfest brew, and the opportunity to support the community food drive, which is hosted in partnership with Metropolitan Ministries. The Riverwalk Halloween Hunt is an alternative to the annual Trick or Treat event usually held on the Riverwalk. The hunt will run for three weeks and takes ...
