What Is CampU?

CampU is a 3-day, 2-night, off-campus experience for new students. Campers participate in fun, interactive, and social activities rooted in the four pillars of the program: Friendship, Tradition, Identity, and Purpose. Join NSC for an adventure of a lifetime and discover what it means to be part of the Bull family!

Why CampU?

By attending CampU, you will build strong bonds with new friends, learn USF traditions, and explore your personal strengths. Attendees feel supported by peer mentors, develop an involvement plan for the upcoming year, obtain knowledge of academic programs and research/employment options to explore, and gain confidence to be successful their first semester!

How Much Does CampU Cost?

$150 covers the CampU non-refundable registration fee. Thanks to USF alumni, we are able to provide financial assistance to a limited number of students. If awarded, participants are asked to cover $50 of the registration fee, and the remaining $100 is waived.

You're Registered, Now What?

After registering, participants will receive an e-mail that includes information on arrival/return details, what to pack, directions for check-in, required travel forms, and instructions to complete any items prior to CampU.


CampU would not be possible without the support and partnership between New Student Connections, and the Alumni Association. Special thanks to our program donors – USF Alumni Association, Parent and Family Programs, Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and many individual staff members.
