The Full Story

About "Minaret Tales"


A collection of life adventures of University of Tampa students who attended college in the 1950s, an era when life was simpler, less stressful, more joyful, happier, and full of hope for their future. Wander the great hallways beneath the exotic towers with Spartans still around today as they reminisce about those bygone years. Young women on the brink of adulthood were surrounded by Korean veterans also attending classes under the resplendent, ornate domes called Minarets. Together they sat in rooms with blazing fireplaces, roamed drafty hallways, danced in the lobby after football games and some even lived in a Minaret dorm room. Stroll with the author through one enormous building where you not only lived but studied, ate, and attended classes.
