Campus statue hits the bull's-eye

Students hang out near the new $10,000, 850-pound, bronze bull statue that was installed recently in front of the University of South Florida St. Petersburg Student Center. The cost of the statue was covered by the USFSP Student Government, according to Tom Scherberger, director of communications at the campus. Student Government president Mark Lombardi said, “It’s about building campus tradition and culture. It’s going to be the first thing you take your picture with and the last thing you take your picture with. It’s going to be forever, and it should be because this is who we are: we’re the bulls.” The bull stands at the northern entrance to Harborwalk.
