FIND YOURSELF IN THE SUN Some people call St. Petersburg paradise— soon you could be calling it home. It all begins with Autumn Term, where you’ll: • Spend three weeks taking a class led by your faculty mentor. • Enjoy afternoons hiking at Fort De Soto State Park, building rafts for the Kon Tiki raft race and taking sunset sails on the bay.

• Find your way around campus before the upperclass students arrive. Don’t worry, you’ll have help—an experienced student will join your Autumn Term professor in guiding you through your first year.
