Here’s a sampling of other do-not-miss homecoming activities on the USF Tampa campus:

On Tuesday, USF alumni employees are invited to a “members only” Working Bulls Luncheon. Later that evening the USF community will gather for a free Stampede Comedy Show.

Get social with the USF alumni association or concert goers on Thursday night. The association recognizes trailblazers in the community and in the work place at their annual Alumni Awards Dinner. In the mood for something more lively? Then get tickets to one of the biggest parties of the year—USF’s Homecoming Concert!

This year USF Homecoming is paired with Family & Friends Weekend, which begins on Friday, October 13.

Things get started early on Friday with the Carnival and Student Talent Showcase. In the evening, Bulls can take their pick from an Alumni Welcome Home Party to the Running of the Bulls Parade to several athletic events.

Be sure to join football FANatics for the Bulls vs. the Bearcats on Saturday and volleyball against Connecticut on Sunday.
