USF St. Pete forms alumni society

A little more than five years after becoming separately accredited, USF St. Petersburg is taking another major step toward establishing a distinctive identity.
It’s created an alumni society.
More than 4,200 people have graduated from USFSP since it became accredited in December 2006.
USFSP spokesman Tom Scherberger says thousands more consider USFSP their primary campus, though most of them received their degrees from USF Tampa.
The new alumni group held its first meeting in February; about 35 people came.
It was a mixture of USFSP grads and USF Tampa grads who consider St. Pete their home campus, Scherberger said.
“They have one thing in common, regardless of whether their diplomas said USF or USFSP: They all love this campus and consider it their alma mater,” said Scherberger, who started at USFSP in February.
The next alumni meeting is at 6 p.m. on Wednesday in the Community Room at Harbor Hall (formerly the Dali Museum), 1000 Third Street S., St. Petersburg.
They’ll be electing officers.
