Students Today … Bulls Forever
Believe it or not, the USF Alumni Association is involved in your life before you even graduate! Here are just a few activities we participate in or sponsor:
The USF Bookstore hosts Grad Stampede every semester to give graduating
seniors the opportunity to take care of business! Order your cap and
gown, graduation announcements, class ring, and of course, this is the
perfect opportunity to join the Alumni Association. Grad Stampede is held in October, June, and February/March each year.
Outstanding Graduate Award
The USF Alumni Association names one Outstanding Graduate each semester, a graduating senior who embodies leadership, school spirit, academic excellence, community involvement and a love for USF.
The Outstanding Graduate is honored with individual recognition by the University president and the Alumni Association at Commencement.

King O’Neal Scholar Award
The USF Alumni Association awards the King O’Neal Scholars award every semester to those students completing their USF coursework with a 4.0 GPA. The award was created in honor of charter USF graduates Lucas King and Evelyn O’Neal.
King O’Neal Scholars receive special individual recognition at Commencement exercises by the University president and the Alumni Association chairman. Each King O’Neal receives a certificate recognizing their accomplishment and a medallion of the University seal.
Get it Together Tent
Graduation is stressful enough without having to worry about getting dressed the right way! The Alumni Association sets up at Commencement to assist graduates with getting their caps, gowns, hoods and tassels on straight, facing in the right direction, and looking good for the big day. Look for our tent in the Sun Dome Corral on Commencement day and Get it Together!
