Homecoming & Reunion Weekend

Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2016 was a success! Over the weekend of Sept. 24-25, guests enjoyed Alumni Network meetings, the annual Alumni Association board meeting, alumni athletic matches, the homecoming tailgate and game, a presentation with the USF archivist, tours, dinners, a Beatles tribute band, a 40th anniversary celebration for the Mass Communication program, Sunday Mass and brunch, and more! Whew! It was a whirlwind weekend, but a great time was had by all. Check back next year for Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2017 activities and information.

Until then, check out photos from this year’s festivities in the photo archives below.
