One of the major headlines coming from the University of South Florida's gala celebration of its Unstoppable Campaign reaching its billion dollar goal was the announcement of another $15 million gift from philanthropists Les and Pam Muma.

WUSF's University Beat was the only broadcast media invited to speak to the couple at their Belleair home ahead of the announcement.

In a five week period between early September and mid-October, the University of South Florida system saw its two Colleges of Business undergo monumental changes.

While the USF Saint Petersburg Kate Tiedemann College of Business took a new name and broke ground on a new building - things we'll discuss on next week's University Beat - the College of Business on the Tampa campus also has a new name.

In what they call a "visible thank you" to the school that helped them become successful, local businessman Les Muma and his wife, Pam, have donated $25 million to the University of South Florida College of Business - the largest single gift in USF's history.
