History

USF's "Iconic Bull" logo was introduced in 2003, replacing the gold-colored "USF" script. Since then, sales of athletic merchandise have skyrocketed.
Old USF Athletics logo, replaced in 2003 by the "Iconic Bull" seen to the left.

USF was founded in 1956, though it was not even named until the next year and classes didn't commence until 1960. Some of the original proposed names included "Citrus State University", "Sunshine State University," "The University of the Western Hemisphere" and "The University of Florida at Temple Terrace." [9] Former US Representative Sam Gibbons was instrumental in the school's creation when he was a state representative and is considered by many to essentially be the school's founder. It was built on the site of Henderson Air Field, a World War II airstrip. Although located in west-central Florida, at the time of establishment USF was the southernmost public university in the State of Florida, a geographic situation that lent USF its sometimes confusing name.

The university first grew under the leadership of John Allen, who was the president from 1957 until 1970. During this time, the university expanded rapidly, due in part to the first graduate degree programs commencing in 1964. Allen elected to resign and retire in 1970.

USF is also one of three public universities in the State (with the University of Florida and Florida State University) to have received first-tier research university status by the Carnegie Foundation, a mission first started by former USF president Betty Castor in the 1990s.[11] As such, the university takes great pride in advancing its position as a research university in promotional advertisements and brochures. USF emerged as a major research institution during the 1980s under the presidency of John Lott Brown, Ph.D. [12] President Brown appointed scholarly administrators such as Jim Strange, Ph.D., Dean of Arts and Letters, and Andor Szentivanyi, Dean of Medicine. Two university hospitals, The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and USF Psychiatry Center, as well as the college of public health were built during Brown's presidency.

In addition to a heightened emphasis on research and academia, the university played its first football game in 1997.
