by Sydney Rhodes In the early hours of Saturday, Oct. 13, a sexual misconduct between two students was reported on campus at UT. The incident occurred in a dorm room of Austin Hall and was recorded by authorities at 1 a.m. Since Tampa Police officers are present on campus Thursday-Saturday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., they were able to attend to the report and the students involved. After the officers took photographs and clothing as evidence, the event resulted in a judicial referral, which is a formal written request to proceed with judicial enforcement relating to the violations in questions. Essentially, this was a criminal offense of sexual assault that occurred in one of our on campus dorm rooms at UT, said Samuel Ponce, assistant director of Campus Safety.

by Tatiana Torres Hamburger Marys, a popular spot in Ybor, has been shut down because an employee tested positive for the Hepatitis A virus. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention CDC, Hepatitis A is a highly contagious liver infection that can last from a few weeks to several months and is transmitted through food or drinks that are contaminated with trace amounts of stool from an infected person.

byMalaysia Alford Some students at UT are concerned about inclusiveness when it comes to women of color and the beauty products sold at the schools bookstore. The universitys Barnes and Noble College Bookstore is home to more than just textbooks, school supplies and spirit gear. It houses basic living essentials for its residents and those on campus who may need anything from an Advil for their headache to an umbrella for Floridas rainy days. Any person who walks in will find a small wall that reads Eye, Face, Lip, Cheek products such as Burts Bees, Maybelline, Covergirl, LOreal and Pantene. In the current era, beauty brands around the world are striving to find balance in their shade ranges as their consumers press for representation of all skin types and colors. I am not surprised that some students feel that the beauty products at UT are not all inclusive, said Nia Burton, marketing and public relations chair for the UT Black Student Union. It is actually expected on such a predominately white campus. I feel this aligns with the many other issues the University of Tampa has with accommodating its minority students. Tru-Color Bandages is a company founded in 2013 after ...
