Student Achievements

The USF Department of History is immensely proud of the many achievements of its undergraduate students. Below are a few of them. If you would like to see your achievements or the achievements of another undergraduate student detailed on this page, please email Matt King with information about them and their work!

The Institute for Digital Exploration (IDEx) partnered with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office to preserve more than 80,000 items that date back to the late 19th century – some for historical purposes, others than can hold the key to solving crime. PhD student Lisa Shorts and MA students Sarah Hassam, Lourdes Vickers, Sofia Almeida, undergraduate student intern Gloria Lopez, and undergraduate student intern Aiden Eylward contributed to this project.

Alexandre Bojko received a Gilder Lehrman College Fellowship in American History for his ongoing project, “Jacksonian Charisma and Whig Non-Conformity: An Analysis of the Political Rhetoric of Democrats and Whigs in the Election of 1840.” This fellowship will provide Alexandre with financial support in 2023 to conduct research at the Gilder Lehrman Institute in New York City.

Morgan Greig and Hannah Tweet were admitted to PhD programs at the University of Cambridge and University of Michigan (respectively) in Fall 2022. Both students were involved in the La Florida project at the USF St. Pete campus and will build off this work in these graduate programs.
