At the University of South Florida, students love to show their bull pride. But, what can make that task hard is finding apparel that doesn’t hurt your wallet. Luckily, there are numerous events that take place around campus and give away t-shirts and other prizes throughout the academic year.
One that I personally love is Bull Market. Every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., student organizations and outside vendors take over MLK plaza to promote themselves. And what better way to do that then to give away free stuff. One of my personal favorite booths to visit is the Student Alumni Association (SAA). When you set up an account with USF Federal Credit Union, you automatically get a free membership to SAA. Being a member has many benefits, but one of my favorites is that they give away free t-shirts before home football games.
A lot of other organizations give away free items just for promoting their social media and doing a quick survey. I know that I’ve gotten a lot of free water bottles, tote bags, shirts and other great stuff by just visiting a table and hearing about their organization. So next time you’re by the MSC on a Wednesday don’t hesitate to go up to a table and see what you can get!
