MEET OUR TEAM
It all started with only 2 students. Today we are composed of 16 board members.
Our team is composed of energetic, hard-working, and committed USF students who wish to make an impact on the community. Together we work to achieve our goals and to give students the best experience they could have before, during, and after going through the University of South Florida.
