UT has become the seasonal home to one of Santa’s scout elves (you know the kind, from The Elf on the Shelf®), where he comes on sabbatical from Dec. 1–24, having heard that being on campus during December is a delightful reprieve from the chilly north.

As is tradition, we have given our elf a name of his own, Mr. JingleBoots of Sparta. Every day from Dec. 1 through Dec. 24, we will post Mr. JingleBoots' whereabouts on Instagram and other social media using #UTampaElf. Check back often – the elf is bound to get into some mischief while on campus!
