These images are weaved together against the backdrop of Ybor which was once the cigar capital of the world in the early 1900’s as a result of the Cuban, Spanish, and Italian immigrants, notably Jose Marti and Vicente Martinez Ybor who founded the city and brought economic prosperity. Red brick architecture, lampposts, cigars, trolleys, flamenco dancers of the era combined with the colors of the Ybor City flag create a vibrant backdrop for students and visitors to the campus.
