Most of these events take place at the Marshall Student Center, which features a variety of amenities including but not limited to: dining options, plenty of study space, a meditation room, and a gaming room.

In this section we provide a brief overview of theatre and dance student organizations at USF.

Student Theatre Production Board

The Student Theatre Production Board (STPB) is a student organization dedicated to student-produced theatre. STPB seeks to promote student involvement in the USF theatrical community by giving students the chance to direct, act, design and tech their own shows. We give students the opportunity to practice, produce, and experiment with their own art. In addition to putting on student-directed, -acted, -designed, and -written shows, we also act to bring the USF theatre community at large together. We plan fundraisers, academic events, theatre activities and the like to help our community grow and bring awareness into the arts.
