USF provides you with a number of performance opportunities sponsored by PASJ and independent student-run groups sponsored by University Life. The performance spaces include Presentation Theater, Studio Theater, and smaller spaces throughout the campus and off campus.

Performance Opportunities

There are many performance opportunities at USF, and many ways for you to express yourself through theater, dance, and music.

I loved perform with my peers, and getting to be part of a creative community on campus that also got exposure to learning about social-justice issues that we were encouraged to understand through our artistic craft."
