Get to Know the Students at University of South Florida

We want more than names! Tell us about yourselves! Majors? Hometowns? Fun facts?

Majors of students range from Biomedical Sciences to Psychology to Business. There are a variety of students interested in the success of this camp and come from all different backgrounds. Many students are from different areas of Florida such as Fort Myers and Jacksonville but also from outside the state.

Completing an application to start a new Camp Kesem Chapter takes a TON of work. Why is this important to you?

This cause is very important as I believe that it involves a group of individuals that are often overlooked. There are not many organizations that look after the kids of parents with cancer, therefore this fact along with our passion for working with kids has inspired us to invest so much of our time for this cause.

Where is your school located?

Tampa, FL

So what's the best thing about going to your school?

The best part is the interactions students gain with others from a variety of backgrounds and cultures as students from over 120 countries come to USF.

By the way, how many undergrads go to your school? (And what's the one word you would use to describe the Culture/Spirit of your school?)

37,027 Undergraduates; Passionate

The word "Kesem" means a lot to the thousands of campers, parents and student leaders who have come to know our mission. What does it mean to you?

To me, the word "Kesem" means love and unity. It is shown through the amazing students who volunteer in the camp to show these kids how much they matter and allowing them to connect with others who are in the same situation as them. Everyone works together and is together to learn how to get through this difficult time. They all unite and become a part of team gaining lifelong friends and support through one another.

There's a lot of great students (including you!) who are hoping to start a new Camp Kesem chapter. We wish we could accept each and every one of you! So here's your chance to tell the public why you should start a new chapter!:

You should vote for USF because we are the most passionate, tenacious students that you will meet. Every task that we take on we do with 100% of our efforts and work together to ensure that it is completed with flying colors. We do not stop until we have reached our goal. If chosen, we will dedicate our time to ensure that this chapter will become one of the best.
