University of South Florida
In a festive ceremony held each year since the founding of the Judy Genshaft Honors
College, the freshman class of honors students embark on the first steps of their
collegiate academic journey at Honors Convocation. Marching to the beat of USF's Herd of Thunder, the USF President, Provost, and College
deans lead new students on the traditional Honors Convocation walk from the Allen
Building (home to the Judy Genshaft Honors College on the university's Tampa campus)
through the bougainvillea arcade to the Marshall Student Center for a formal program.
USF leaders and a featured speaker welcome new students to the Judy Genshaft Honors
College at a ceremony in the Marshall Student Center Oval Theater. This special event
takes place in the beginning of Fall semester and kicks off their journey with the
Judy Genshaft Honors College.
