by Lindsay Price Drug and alcohol violations were the two highest criminal occurrences in 2017, according to statistics given by UT Campus Safety. There were 762 liquor law referrals, an increase from 654 in 2016, and 168 drug law referrals, a decrease from 188 in the prior year. Violations of UTs alcohol and drug policies are reported to the Office of Student Conduct, who assess possible interim actions. Tim Nelson, Director of Student Conduct, explained that the consequences for these infractions can vary from case to case. Disciplinary actions often depend on the specific circumstances, the type of offense and the severity of the violation. As indicated within the student code of conduct, standard disciplinary sanctions range from a disciplinary reprimand through expulsion, Nelson said. It would also be common for standard disciplinary sanctions to be paired with other disciplinary sanctions that are more educationally focused, like the BASICS Alcohol and Drug assessment and parental notifications. Gina Firth, the Associate Dean of Wellness, noted that drug and alcohol offenses are in violation of Florida laws and not just UTs policies. She added that Campus Safety works with the Tampa Police Department to enforce the regulations. Students have been legally cited ...
by Tori Takacs Following the recent partnership with the JED Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bettering the mental health of teens and young adults, UT will conduct a study of its students. The Healthy Minds UT survey was emailed to students in their spartan emails on Monday, Oct. 8. The survey will be open for three weeks and takes approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. The survey was sent out in hopes of helping JED and UT to better understand the minds of students and the type of counseling they actually need. Healthy Minds is completely anonymous and voluntary, but student participation is a necessity for the program to work. When the program comes to an end, a second study will be sent out similar to the first. It will be used to determine if and how much things have changed over the last four years. The study will consist of questions regarding many aspects of student wellness. Mental health status, coping strategies, campus culture and how often students seek professional help are just a few of the topics to be covered. Student persistence and retention will also be a topic inside the survey. The JED and UT partnership was ...
by Nabhanya Morarji In order to make Bayshore safer for pedestrians, beacons with flashing lights are now being mounted at three different intersections. They can be used by people crossing the street, in order to signal on-coming traffic to slow down. The city of Tampa introduced these safety measures following the death of Jessica Raubenolt and her 21 month-old daughter, Lillia Raubenolt. Jessica was pushing Lillia in a stroller when the pair was struck by Cameron Herrin, 18, who was racing John Barrineau, 17, in his Mustang late May. Pedestrian safety is a top priority, said Mayor Bob Buckhorn to the Tampa Bay Times in an article titled Flashing beacons go up on Bayshore Blvd so traffic will stop for crossing pedestrians. These beacons will serve as a visual reminder that pedestrians are present while also slowing traffic. The beacons can be found on South Dakota Avenue, South Delaware Avenue and between West Swann and South Brevard Avenue. They will be available for use starting Oct. 24. Having the light, specially during the night when its difficult to see, would really help alert the coming cars from a long distance, so they have enough time to slow down, says ...
By Simon Brady Its amazing how quickly windows of greatness in the NFL close. Four and a half years ago, the Seattle Seahawks had it made, and it looked as if the rest of the league would be looking up and chasing them for the next decade. After throttling the greatest passing offense in NFL history at the time in the Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII back in 2014 with an extremely young core, it looked as if they were well on their way to more NFC and Super Bowl titles. The staple of the Seahawks for years was the Legion of Boom, otherwise known as the most feared defensive secondary in NFL history. At the time of their lone Super Bowl in the era of head coach Pete Carroll the Seahawks Seattle had arguably the best cornerback in the league in Richard Sherman. The lockdown capability of Sherman combined with the elite tandem of strong safety Kam Chancellor and free safety Earl Thomas infuriated opposing offensive coordinators and quarterbacks week in and week out. At the time of the Super Bowl victory, Sherman and Chancellor were both 26 years of age, and Thomas was 25. ...
