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, USF System President, Provost Ralph
Wilcox, and the university's deans lead new students on the traditional Honors Convocation
walk from the Allen Building (home to the Judy Genshaft Honors College) through the
bougainvillea arcade to the Marshall Student Center for a formal program.
USF System President, Provost Wilcox, Judy Genshaft Honors College Dean, Dr. Charles
Adams, and a featured speaker welcome new students to the Judy Genshaft Honors College
at a ceremony in the Marshall Student Center Oval Theater.
