USF Hometown Round-Ups


Alumni-hosted parties welcome new students to USF

What is a Hometown Round-Up?

USF Hometown Round-Ups are events held for incoming USF freshmen and their families prior to the start of the fall semester. These free events are a chance for students and parents to meet other families and to learn more about USF. They also offer local alumni an opportunity to welcome students as they join our Bulls family.

Round-Ups are held in cities throughout the United States and take place during the summer, typically beginning in June and concluding in early August. Watch for your invitation in the mail later this spring.

Student and Parents - Welcome to the USF Family!

  • Ask questions of alumni and returning students, as well as university staff that may be in attendance 
  • Meet other incoming students - make friends before you even leave for the university!
  • Meet other parents who live in your area
  • Be entered to win prizes, including a $100 gift card to the USF Bookstore.
